Thanks for the word on Triple J, will check it out. Having appeared on 'You and Yours' once, I'm sorry to see you slag it off. It's the only BBC show that's ever paid me for an interview! Apart from Radio Two's Sounds Of The Sixties on Saturday mornings, I restrict myself to 4 and 6music too, but the 6 DJs usually drive me away within half an hour.

It's strange to see this post because Chris and I were talking about this subject a few days ago. One of my earliest memories is of my dad getting up at 4am (in Canada)so he could listen to a BBC radio show every day.

Just discovered your blog this evening Scott and will be reading it regularly. By strange coincidence I have also just recently discovered TuneIn although I find that being in New Zealand I tend to listen to Northern hemisphere stations!

Thanks Michael, I look forward to you returning many times!

  • : Gone Girl

    Gone Girl
    Pretty good, I thought, but not amazing. I had already read the book so perhaps the lack of surprise hindered things a bit. (***)

  • : The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox
    An absolute delight. Beautifully acted. Loved this. (****)

  • : Atomised

    Atomised
    So much better than the book. (****)

  • : 20,000 Days on Earth

    20,000 Days on Earth
    Watched this for a second time. Just as good. (****)

  • : The Illusionist

    The Illusionist
    This one had passed me by but I am glad I caught it. (****)

  • : La Grande Illusion

    La Grande Illusion
    I did enjoy this but one of the greatest films of all time? I think not. (***)

  • : The Grand Budapest Hotel

    The Grand Budapest Hotel
    Watched this again. Still amazing. (*****)

  • : What's Eating Gilbert Grape

    What's Eating Gilbert Grape
    Watched this for the first time in ages. Still pretty good. Leo is excellent in it. His best performance? Perhaps. (****)

  • : Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

    Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale
    Long story but I watched this weird and very dark festive movie a month after Christmas and I loved it. (****)

  • : Diva

    Diva
    Been meaning to watch this ever since I saw Betty Blue back in the 80s but only just got round to it. I feared it would be all style over substance but it actually turned out to be a pretty good crime thriller. (****)

  • : Brothers

    Brothers
    Subtle and brilliantly acted. Liked it a lot more than I expected to. (****)

  • : Whiplash

    Whiplash
    An OK movie elevated above the norm by two excellent performances. (***)

  • : Timecrimes

    Timecrimes
    Great bit of timey-wimey nonsense. Liked it a lot. (****)

  • : More Than Honey

    More Than Honey
    Interesting documentary about bees. Didn't blow me away but kept me watching. (***)

  • : Happy-Go-Lucky

    Happy-Go-Lucky
    I thought this was going to irritate me but I ended up being quite charmed by it. (****)

  • : Our Day Will Come

    Our Day Will Come
    Bonkers road movie in which Vincent Cassel goes off on one in revenge for discrimination against redheads. Or something. (**)

  • : La Strada

    La Strada
    Supposedly Fellini's first masterpiece but it was painted with too broad brushstrokes to work its charm on me. The off-putting dubbed dialogue and sound effects didn't help either. (**)

  • : Birdman

    Birdman
    Inspired, ambitious, bonkers. (****)

  • : Inglourious Basterds

    Inglourious Basterds
    Only just got round to watching this. It is ridiculous but lots of fun. Also, an amazing about of subtitled dialogue for a major American film. (****)

  • : Le Mepris

    Le Mepris
    Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli and Fritz Lang star in a beautifully shot but terribly pretentious movie. Palance is awful throughout. (**)
