Failed Critics is home to the slightly shambolic weekly film podcast, The Failed Critics Podcast, where each week we review new theatrical releases, as well as revisit some classics (and not-so-classics), trawl through film news, and maybe even chat to the odd special guest. You'll also receive bi-weekly episodes of our sister gaming podcast, Character Unlock, which pretty much follows the same format, but is about computer games.
 
Underground Nights is presented by James Mullinger, a comedian and feminist living in Canada, and Paul Field, a Sun reading football fan in the south of England. By all accounts, they shouldn’t be friends and yet they are united by their shared interests in genre and cult films, and vinyl records.

James and Paul are back with a lockdown special, taking a deep dive into the Rise Of The Footsoldier franchise. Pat Tate, Tony Tucker & Craig Rolfe met a sticky end in Rettendon that's spawned a slew of movies. We found out which is their favourite and there's a special Footsoldier quiz. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.…
 
Hosts Steve Norman and Owen Hughes had a day off work and decided to kill time by doing an impromptu podcast on stuff they've seen in 2019. It also means we edge one step closer to the magic episode 300 mark - just nine more to go. But, seeing as the last podcast they released was in June 2018, it's unlikely to be reached any time soon. The pair ta…
 
We're back! Sort of. Host Steve Norman is back, at least, for another Star Wars special episode with regulars Paul Field and Dave Valentine booting misery guts Owen Hughes from the podcast. There's quizzing, japes, and of course more Solo: A Star Wars Story chat than you could shake a lightsaber at. For information regarding your data privacy, visi…

We're back for a bit. No biggie. Just Steve Norman, Owen Hughes and Paul Field, hanging around recording a random triple bill podcast trying to ride the crest of interest that usually comes during the Oscars season. Resurrected from the near dead, the Failed Critics revive an old quiz - not an old quiz format, literally they replay an old quiz - an…
 
Happy New Year and all that jazz. We're back from our end of year celebrations (sort of) as hosts Steve Norman and Owen Hughes head to a pub in Oxford to chat movies and TV with Character Unlock's Andrew Brooker.

In the absence of the news section, the trio run …
