Side Special: Fire, Ice & Dynamite with Sarah Morgan

It’s Side Special time again, and this week we’ll be getting our skis on and heading out for a right, royal night on the piste – yes! It’s Fire, Ice and Dynamite! Joining John to slope around with Roger Moore’s cash is comedy writer Sarah Morgan, who can be found on Twitter as @sarahlmorgan.

Side Special: Bullseye LIVE!

Smersh Live!! They said it couldn’t be done! They said it wouldn’t be done! They said they weren’t arsed! Yet they still came to the Everyman Cinema, Kings Cross to watch Michael Winner’s 1990 opus Bullseye! and enjoy a live podcast! Yes, it’s a film we covered before, but it sure made for a great screening, and everyone who attended will almost certainly never be the same again. Joining John were Paul Litchfield and David Reed, who can be found on Twitter as @MrPLitchfield and @MrDavidReed respectively

Smersh Side Special: THE CANNONBALL RUN with Paul Litchfield

It’s Side Special time again, and this week we will be laughing at the lighter side of kidnapping and finding out just what would happen if One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest was a road movie – yes – it’s The Cannonball Run. Joining me, and HIM, to sort the fathers from the mothers is superb comedian, writer and actor Paul Litchfield

Smersh Side Special: Wild Geese II with Al Murray and Simon Evans

It’s Side Special time again, and this week we’re putting together a crack team of moody middle aged men to spring an OAP with vast eyebrows from the world’s most secure prison/building site. Yes – it’s only bloody WILD GEESE 2! And joining my crack team of commandLOLS to fix another fine HESS we’ve gotten into are a right pair of jokers (comedians): Al Murray, who can be found on twitter as @almurray, and Simon Evans, who can be located as @TheSimonEvans

Smersh Side Special: Highlander with Greg Jenner

HIGHLANDER! Ahh-ah! He’ll save every one of us!” Sorry, wrong theme tune. It’s the film about the immortal Scottish swordsman battling the last of his immortal opponents, with help from Sean Connery as the chief metallurgist to King Charles V of Spain (or is it Egypt?) It’s a grand epic so rich in pseudo-historical nonsense that only an ACTUAL HISTORIAN could do it justice. So joining John to cut off your head is Greg Jenner, who can be found on Twitter as @greg_jenner.

Smersh Side Special: Sextette with Julia Raeside

John is joined by Guardian TV writer Julia Raeside to watch Timothy “Bond James Bond” Dalton gamely feign desire for 1,000,000 year old Mae West in the “saucy” “musical” “comedy” Sextette. “Why don’t you come up and see it some time?” Why? Because it’s batshit insane.

Smersh Side Special: Taffin with Adam Buxton

“Then maybe you shouldn’t be living heeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrre!” John Rain tackles the 1988 film starring Bronhom – the man who would be Bond (and then was Bond, so don’t cry) – with the man who gave Taffin a second chance at life. It’s Dr Buckles himself, the Emperor of Podland Adam Buxton, who can be found on Twitter as @AdamBuxton.
