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.

Welcome to this weeks episode. Which has Jim presenting us with a golden opportunity (or possibly a magically phallic monarch), Elton has rubber pants (maybe), Darren spends a whole week in the cinema watching three films back to back, while Lee Helldives, screams and also acts as hotline for a lovecraftian home insurance company.

Then after some feedback regarding Ben Affleck in The Accountant and a misunderstanding of what film we reviewed last week, we move on to this weeks movie. Is it a comedy-horror? a horror-comedy? Splatstick or a a rockband movie like The Monkies made back in the 60s? All these questions (might) be answered as we review the Foo Fighters in Studio666
