Each episode, one of the boys presents an overlooked film they love, and tries to convince the other of its misunderstood genius. The two debate its merits and discuss how it was made and whether it belongs in the pantheon of cinematic greats. You Should Watch This with Ed and Simon began as a series of drunken conversations between two film-loving friends who were constantly recommending forgotten and unloved movies to each other. With the help of sound, editing and music maestro David, a podcast was born. Season 1 introduces us to eight unique, brilliant films and Season 2 is coming hot on its heels to bring even more recommendations for unmissable films into your life.
||ExplicitYSWT - S1E8 - The Brothers Bloom (2008)||The Brothers Bloom (2008) is a madcap heist movie from director Rian Johnson ("The Last Jedi", "Looper") which pitches Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo as the eponymous brothers.

||ExplicitYSWT - S1E7 - Fletch (1985)||Love Bill Murray? What if I told you that out of the mist of 1970s improv comedy came a leading man equally as funny but definitely more problematic that Bill? Although massive during his '80s heydey, Chevy Chase sunk to relative obscurity and although.||23 9 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitYSWT - S1E6 - Ride Lonesome (1959)||Budd Boetticher's 1959 Western "Ride Lonesome" is up for discussion this week, and the Randolph Scott vehicle is an absolute gem of a movie. Fast paced (this B movie is only 73 minutes long) and packing a heck of a punch, this is the sort of classic Su.||16 9 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitYSWT - S1E5 - In The Cut (2003)||Jane Campion's marvellously original and disturbing thriller In The Cut (2003) features on the podcast this week, and Ed and Simon pick apart the masterly intense and controversial thriller starring Meg Ryan, Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Jason Leigh.||9 9 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitYSWT - S1E4 - Deep Red (1975)||Feeling like something scary? How about an '70s Italian horror/slasher movie with an amazing prog soundtrack (Goblin), creepy puppets, inventive murder scenes and a whodunit plot that will keep you guessing until the end? Dario Argento's Deep Red (aka .||2 9 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitYSWT - S1E3 - Southland Tales (2006)||Remember cult classic Donnie Darko? Remember the director Richard Kelly's follow up Southland Tales? Possibly not...

||ExplicitYSWT - S1E2 - Cutter's Way (1981)||Ed Hime and Simon Fowler jump right in with another episode of "You Should Watch This" featuring Ivan Passer's 1981 noir-ish thriller Cutter's Way.

||ExplicitYSWT - S1E1 - Something Wild (1986)||Ed and Simon discuss Jonathan Demme's Something Wild. A packed soundtrack plus scene stealing performance from a pre-Goodfellas Ray Liotta make this a personal favourite for Simon. But will Ed agree on its merits?||18 8 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
Charming, informative and fun
I learned a little more about Ray Liotta today, and a lotta more about costume designer Norma Moriceau. Really engaging, informative and funny podcast. Despite not knowing the film before, I finished up with a strong sense of it (without the feeling that I'd had its major plot points gutted out). I look forward to finding out about more overlooked hits & near-misses with this pair. Not sure what the beef with Wes Anderson was about though.
Yes, inspiring! Not quite like a TED talk... rather than become a microfinance entrepreneur, just makes you want to watch these great movies again - or for the first time even, though maybe not recommended that way around. Keep up the quality, looking forward to this journey!
Ps. Michael Kimino = Michael “Chi mee no” :)
You Should Listen To This
If you're a movie fan this entertaining and informative podcast is a must listen - whether you've seen the films under discussion or not. It reminded me of BBC Radio 4's Saturday Review - a good thing - but it's funnier and has the time to discuss each film in welcome depth.
