Mike Parkin – Mike’s DTV Digest
Talentless hack who’s spent the last decade trying to convince people that a lot of Direct-to-DVD movies are actually worth watching, and advocate that good action doesn’t necessarily mean a dumb movie, and that watching a foreign subtitled film isn’t the same as reading a book.
Favourite film – Where Eagles Dare
Worst film – The remake of Rollerball
Sooz Kempner – Podcaster
Sooz is a Stand-up comedian from Gatwick. She did a BA in scriptwriting but mainly writes tweets about films nowadays because getting a script produced is really hard work. She frequently posts videos on YouTube like Méliès would have done if born in the 1980s. She also regularly performs at the Edinburgh Fringe!
Favourite film – Goodfellas
Worst film – Manos The Hands Of Fate
Stephen Lockeridge – Podcaster
Simple bloke with simple pleasures. Lover of all types of movies, from comic book movies to foreign arthouse to everything in between. Stephen did a little bit of acting in his younger years that culminated in a small roll in a film called Giorgino (don’t worry if you haven’t heard of it, it was only released in France).
Favourite film – Clerks 2
Worst film – Fred the Movie
David Schaal – Podcaster
David is an actor and was Jay’s Dad in The Inbetweeners and also ‘Taff’ in The Office. A terrific actor, David brings an air of grace and verisimilitude to The Smoking Lamb with his occasion musings on sex, violence and potato peelers. He can be seen on BBC2’s We the Jury and CBBC’s Hetty Feather next year.
Favourite film – The Godfather
Worst film – The Godfather Part III
