In this episode we take on the brilliant 2016 Deadpool.  Conventional wisdom says that you should never do a comedy podcast about a movie that's funnier than you.  But if there's one thing that Dr and Lynch have in spades it's a lack of wisdom.

The dynamic trio of Tysto, Lynch and the Doc are formed to take on the first of Christopher Nolan's Batman Trilogy.  Unfortunately the first one isn't so much like the Joker or Bane, but more like Crazy Quilt (yes that was a real Batman villain).

In this episode we discuss (amongst many other things) why Morgan Freeman would be the perfect villain, some of Thomas Waynes more controversial business ideas, the many accents of character actor Michael Caine and the similarity between Lian Neeson and Dr. Manhattan.

After two house moves Dr and Lynch are back to discuss Alien 3.  They try to bring the funny, but the movie and it's history is just too damn interesting and most of the time they bring the facts instead.  We're watching the special edition version which, as an experiment, Dr hadn't watched before, so listen to his first reactions as he spots all of the differences (there are a lot).  Lynch also introduces the worst alcoholic drinks known to mankind into the mix but we keep it together right up until the point when the doorbell rings to denote the arrival of the end credits.

Star Trek - The double double - Part 2

Join Dr and Tysto from Tysto commentaries as they discuss the J. J. Abrams directed Star Trek movie.  A different take on the previous Star Trek commentary we posted on the Speakeasy, so relax and enjoy the movie as we realise that nothing at all makes sense, the $150 million dollar homage to lens flare and how perfect we think just about every actor in the movie is.

Star Trek - The Double double - Part 1

Some months ago Dr. and Lynch after recording their Empire Strikes Back commentary were hungry for more and decided to do an off-the-cuff commentary on the new Star Trek movie.  Then, more recently, Dr. and Tysto teamed up for a much better prepared commentary on the same movie.

So here for your amusement we now let you compare and contrast two commentaries on the same movie.  This first version is the Dr. and Lynch recording.  Slightly drunken, completely spontaneous but still entertaining enjoy listening to Dr. boast about how much he knows about Star Trek only to repeatedly make errors when talking about Star Trek history.  Lynch keeps him on the straight and narrow however.

In a few days time the Tysto version will be posted, but in the meantime - enjoy!

Judge Dredd

It's exactly 40 years since Lynch first hatched, an event foretold by ancient prophecy as bringing about the apocalypse.  So what better way to celebrate than by taking on Judge Dredd, based on the classic British anti-hero the production team considered exactly what sort of film the fans would love and then more or less did the complete opposite.

In this episode we're joined by JT Pegg - Judging Dredd is a bumpy ride as we've got lots of complaints about what they did to an icon from our youth but we manage to avoid getting sent to an isocube and have some laughs along the way.

The Matrix

The crack commenting team that previously encountered the Predator reunite to watch The Matrix, and we really wish we'd taken the blue pill instead.  Join us as we discuss whether the Wachowski brothers are still brothers, why less is more when it comes to wire-fu, Lynch's obsession with surgical invasions of flesh, the awkward conversations that Morpheus must have had with his previous failed attempts to find The One and many other things.

The Thing

Tysto and Dr team up once again to take on The Thing, John Carpenter's classic tale of sci-fi horror with fantastic creature effects from Rob Bottin.  One of the great things about this movie is that a lot of what happens is up for debate and we discuss questions like "who gets assimilated and when?", "why keep rottings corpses indoors?", and just what was the Thing doing on the spacecraft at the start.

Blade Runner

It's the first day of April and to celebrate Dr and Lynch take on one of the best movies of all time - Blade Runner.  This is a film that a lot of people have spent a lot of time watching, so we dig deep and manage to deliver some facts that we guarantee you've never heard before!

The Running Man

We taken on the 1987 Arnie movie, The Running Man, directed by Dave Starsky.  Conflict abounds as one of us has a lasting affection for this movie and the other one never really liked it and managed to avoid watching it for the last 23 years.

Join us as we discuss the brilliant casting in the movie (particularly Richard Dawson), the lack of password security in the future, how it was apparently acceptable to make (frequent) rape jokes in late 1980's movies and we find out whether humanity would be safe in our hands by trying to remember the simple 10 digit code that allows them to control the satellite feed.

Also if you weren't aware there's a great little announcement at the end of the movie credits that took us completely by surprise.

Tysto and Speakeasy: Beyond Thunderdome - Iron Man

Welcome to the sequel to the Tysto and Speakeasy join-up where Dr. and Tysto talk about the great 2008 movie Iron Man, starring Robert Downey Jr.  Join us on a light-hearted trip where we discuss some of the Marvel comics lore that the movie is based on, how anyone with a name like Obadiah Stane must be evil and the greatest cameo ever to make it into a superhero movie.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Welcome to 2010 where we start the year off with the movie that made Stephen Norrington quit directing and Sean Connery retire - League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Will the body count be similar when the speakeasy crew take it on? Listen and find out! Discover in the episode, the best place to position divers, which city you need to film in if you want your location to look like Victorian London and why Sean Connery killing someone is much less fun than Arnie killing someone. Keep listening as some of the best commentary material in the episode occurs after the credits roll.

Sit back with some mulled wine and find out the best time to give advice to nervous fliers, the best advice to give to heavily pregnant women on drinking alcohol, and the best minor role that the chauffeur, Argyle, had in his younger days.

Tysto and Speakeasy: Beyond Thunderdome - I, Robot In this episode one half of Speakeasy goes transatlantic and joins forces with Tysto in order to tackle I, Robot. Directed by Alex Proyas and starring Will Smith, a cold emotionless sidekick (played by Bridget Moynahan) and a whole bunch of robots. Was a lot of fun to do this podcast and we cover a whole bunch of topics, so look out for more cross-commentary collaborations!

Aliens In a more analytical and slightly less funny episode than usual we comment on one of our favourite movies, James Cameron's Aliens. Admiration abounds are we discuss the futility of being a deep space salvage vessel, how freaky Bishop is portrayed and Paul Reiser's third greatest performance (after My Two Dads and Mad About You).

Predator In order to take on the power of the mighty Predator we recruit two special forces commentators to join us as we enter the dropzone of the South American jungle. Four enter, but only three leave. That's how big a challenge it was! Join us for this classic 1987 action/sci-fi movie as we discuss the racial stereo-typing of Billy, the awesome career of Shane Black, which is more important show time or payback time and why all of the guards in a guerilla encampment might face inwards.

Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi In this final episode of the Star Wars saga we have the taste of victory in our mouths and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Join us for a little over two hours as we discuss the inconsistent stances of Stormtroopers whilst receiving the Emperor, the pointlessly elaborate rescue plan that must have been formulated to rescue Han, and why Luke Skywalker must clearly have been lying when he told everyone he was a Jedi.

Logan's Run We're back!  By popular demand...ahem...after an extended break due to real-life getting in the way we proudly present Logan's Run, the classic sci-fi movie that spawned a slightly less than classic TV show.

We may be slightly rusty and more than slightly drunk, but we hope you enjoy our triumphant return and we'll be back very soon to continue our trawl through the Star Wars saga.  George Lucas watch out!

Total Recall It's been way to long since we've posted an episode so here's an uncharacteristically sober account of Total Recall. We don't talk too much about the movie and even resort to watching other trailers and 'that incident' from the Twilight Zone movie, but hopefully you'll find it entertaining.

Hello to all our new friends and listeners tuning in from Zarban.com

We promise a more movie-centric podcast for next week.

Howard the Duck Another contender for the worst movie ever made.  The George Lucas equivalent of Ishtar.  In this podcast we, frankly, spend most of our time saying "What were they thinking".  But in between we cover such diverse subjects as the inter-species erotica bubbling under the surface of the movie, and why I might just possibly enjoy this film....

The worst film ever made?  Maybe not, but it's certainly in the running.

This is our inaugral episode broadcasting live on ustream.tv - come and check us out (username: Speakeasy).

Here, as well as discussing how awful the movie is, we're joined in the live chat by Slackjaw from Maryland who keeps us entertained as we endure the nighmare that is Highlander 2 and we reveal why insurance companies should never be given creative control.
