Strap yourself in listeners because this bumper edition of Film Chat is longer than fucking Leonard Cohen song (R.I.P).

This week Sam reviews two films which are adaptations of plays. First up is La La Land!...... Sorry I mean Fences, Denzel Washington's adaptation of the Pultizer prize winner play by August Wilson. Then he casts his discerning eye on La La Land!

....Sorry I mean It's Only The End Of The World, the latest film by director and child, Xavier Dolan. Meanwhile Danny continues his quest to watch every film with the word "women" in the title by reviewing Kelly Reichardt's latest film La La Land!

No wait that's wrong what I meant to type was Certain Woman.

We also dissect the Oscars in forensic detail, report on the casting for Yorgos Lanthimos' latest film and learn everything there is to know about the film watching habits of US Presidents.

A veritable bevy of reviews this time! Danny delves into 20th Century Women, director Mike Mills' tribute to his mother and sisters, and music documentary We Are X, which charts the terrifying lows, dizzying highs, and creamy middles of Japan's foremost prog metal band. Sam just wanted to see a dude shoot some dudes, so he went to check out hip thriller sequel John Wick: Chapter 2.

Plus! We chat about the Oscars, in a discussion that's going to seem pretty darn irrelevant if you listen to this episode after today, we get excited for the return of still-alive Dick Van Dyke to the world of Mary Poppins, and we try rather unsuccessfully to talk dirty with a robot Christian Grey.

This week we review Taxi Driver the classic film about the iconic loner, Travis Bickle. Then we review what would quite possibly be Travis Bickle's least favourite film, the universally acclaimed Moonlight.

We also try and get our heads round the news of the Toni Erdmann remake, confess our weird movie crushes and examine the filmography of one of modern cinema's greatest storytellers, Steve Bannon.

This week, we review Alice Lowe's revenge thriller Prevenge and declare pregnancy to be "weird", and Sam tries to say smart things about Kirsten Johnson's "woman with a movie camera" documentary Cameraperson.

We also wonder what esoteric collection of objects Mica Levi will use for her next film score, get excited about the prospect of a David Bowie art-crime musical, and suggest some killer lines for Stephen Fry to use at tonight's BAFTA ceremony.

On this week's episode Danny catches up with T2:Trainspotting the belated sequel to the era defining classic. Did the film make him as angry as Begbie? As regretful as Spud? Or as happy as... err actually everyone is a bit miserable in the film.

Then he and Sam join forces to review festival darling Toni Erdmann. I don't want to pre-empt the review but lets just say it's one of the best 2hr 40min Germany comedies of the year.....so far.

PLUS we wonder whether Michael Bay is man to take down Trump through the power of cinema, speculate about a remake of Any Which Way But Loose and debut an exclusive musical preview of Liam Neeson's latest angry-old-man-killing-machine movie.

The relentlessly upbeat Film Chat duo dive headfirst into some of the doomiest and gloomiest films currently on release. Rebecca Hall plays a depressed newsreader in Christine, Casey Affleck an unhappy janitor in Manchester By The Sea, and Natalie Portman a grieving First Lady in Jackie. Everyone is having a tough time of it -- except for cinema-goers of course, as all these films are good.

PLUS! We take a look at the Academy Award nominations and decide that #OscarsStillTooWhite, a long-delayed message brings us news of the world's first YouTube-only documentary, and Shia LaBoeuf offers his thoughts on Nazi-punching.

Featuring La La Land, a film for which its star Ryan Gosling spent months learning Jazz piano and Lion, a film for which its star Dev Patel spent months growing a beard.

We also examine whether using cutting age CGI to de age De Niro for an upcoming film is a bad idea or a really bad idea, postulate which film would be best to show a football team before a match and pitch a radical hard sci-fi take on What Women Want.

Happy New Year folks!! Brimming with optimism for the year ahead, we skip and gambol our way through a chortlesome review of Martin Scorsese's Catholic torture drama Silence, a 2.5 hour meditation on suffering and isolation that left us both with a spring in our steps.

Also! One of Sam's old reviews gets a subtle makeover, we ask what the hell is wrong with Ryan Gosling, and Danny grills Sam with an Obama-themed film quiz.

It's the Film Chat Christmas special!! Third time round and it's already widely considered a seasonal staple, as essential as Ray Winstone’s Televised Eggnog Festival. AND it's an extra special special this year as it coincides with our 100th episode, a major milestone and a testament to our dedication to the sounds of our own voices.

Armed with mince pies and cava, we look back over the year, discuss our listeners’ faves and worsties, hear from some legendary directors, and attempt some quickfire reviewing. We also face Katie's most fiendish festive film quiz yet, a gauntlet of Christmassy questions daunting enough to send grown podcasters into a spiral of mild bickering.

Have you ever asked yourself any of the following questions:

1. What are better X-Wings or the wings of an eagle?
2. What is more exciting, watching a 13 year old girl steal a baby eagle from a nest on mountainside or watching a fully grown woman steal the plans to the death star?
3. What is a cooler name, Jyn Erso or Aishol-pan?
4. What is a better film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story or The Eagle Huntress ( A documentary about the 1st female eagle hunter)?

If the answer to any those was yes, then this is the episode for you!

Plus we tell you about the must see faith based film coming to screens in 2017, wonder what is the worse thing a man can do and still sustain a career in hollywood and examine the convoluted naming conventions of The Fast and Furious franchise.
