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 Jims Anti-Dairy-Biotics tribulations continue, Elton has trouble whacking off a tyre so gets someone else to grab his tool and whack it off for him, Darren feels like Madam Web might not be all that, and Lee watches a few films ranging from Wonka to The Beekeeper, all the while fighting to keep himself awake after being up since 5am.

Then after a touch of feedback its on to this weeks film... 

Either a glorious evocation of 90s nostalgia action flicks or a misguided coke fuelled excuse to get a bunch of teen boys in their pants and throw Lou Gossett Jnr through a window? Who can say? But we'll try and find out as we review Toy Soldiers...
