Welcome to the home page of The Black Dog Podcast.

Join Lee, Darren, Jim and Elton as they waffle, wonder and jabber on about film, geek news, video games and any other tangential rubbish that springs to mind. Before reviewing a movie from yesteryear removing either the Rose-Tinted Specs or a Shit-Covered Goggles, to see if the film was really as good (or bad) as popular opinion would have you believe.

This week, Jim goes retro with the Thief games, Elton bows out of his week, Darren finds he has the power to break everything and is looking forward to playing pointy Lara Croft again in the Tomb Raider remasters and Lee goes grumpy old man shouting at clouds after watching The Marvels and Expend4bles (yes it is spelt that way)

After that we have some feedback and a brief visit into a magical realm of Jim Moon's Dreamatorium

Then its on to this weeks movie. A film that is perfect for Valentines day and a date night viewing as it will undoubtely have every couple giving each other the suspicious side eye.

David Finchers cross between Columbo movie of the week and a film adaptation of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.... Gone Girl
