What happens in this episode?

Joining Iain Boulton to talk about the new Netflix animated comedy, The Mitchells vs. The Machines, Christian R. Allan returns as guest reviewer in this episode of Film Roar. With the animated pedigree of Gravity Falls and the producing team of Lord & Miller (The Lego Movie, Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse) involved, the ingredients are there for an animated masterpiece. Will it earn the prestigious five stars?

Before that, The Oscars are over and done with for another year but did anyone genuinely care or show interest in the films nominated in this lingering pandemic environment? Iain and Christian cast their gaze over the winners and notable moments.

And in the newly introduced Guest Recommends portion of the show, Christian puts forward the dark Japanese horror Audition as something film fans should check out. Of course, if they could possibly stomach the horror that’s in store.
