A Film With A Natural Disaster

We’re back, and this season Andrew is being a bit more specific with the films he wants to watch. First up, he wants the spectacle and thrill of a natural disaster movie. Can Simon win him over to his corner with tales of beaches and bidets, or will Dylan be able to persuade him that he needs more Bill Paxton in his life? Or was it Bill Pullman?

A Film With A Musical Number That’s Not A Musical

Dylan and Simon both love musicals, but Andrew has his limits, and only wants to watch a film with restricted spontaneous singing. Can Andrew choose between two comedy giants like Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig, can Dylan win a round by roasting the crowd, and can Simon pull off a lounge cover of his favourite Shania Twain song? Find out all this and more in this week’s episode.

A Film Where Someone Dies But You’re Okay With It

Andrew is tired of crying when the good guy dies in a film. If people are going to perish on screen, he wants to be spared the devastation. This week Dylan and Simon have the particularly tough job of finding a film where death is integral to the plot, but it doesn’t spoil the movie… or your day. There’s talk of whoopee cushions, school plays, Scooby Doo and Power Rangers – but is any of it enough to sway Andrew?

A Film Where An Animal Talks

Andrew’s in the mood for something different this week, and that something different is a talking animal! Can Dylan sway him to his side with a bunch of famous impressions, or will Simon win him over with a song that used to be called ‘Knickers in a Handbag’? There’s also talk of awkward movie screenings, and the boys find out which Knights of the Roundtable they’d be.

A Film With Someone You Usually Don’t Care For

Andrew wants usually unlikeable actors to be likeable in this week’s film selection. Can Simon convince him to chose a brawler, or will Dylan win him over with a marionette? There’s also some Movie Balderdash, a sing-along, and some general talk about talking in films. Enjoy!

A Film With A Reindeer

It’s time for another Christmas episode of Citizen Lame, packed to the brim with fun movie facts, games and Andrew’s inexplicable disdain for a certain Academy Award winning musical.

A Film With A Beach House, And One With A Computer Mouse

Introducing a film podcast for those who love films, and those who are still on the fence!

The battle for Andrew’s movie affections continue. The Brothers Streep have each chosen a film that they need to convince Andrew to watch. Simon attempts to lure Andrew into his camp with the power of potatoes, whilst Dylan uses the ‘power of the positive’. There’s also talk about the morality of watching movies on your cellphone and the catchiest ringtone of all.

A Film With A Man Humming, And One With Time Stopping

The brothers have each won an episode, so there’s everything to play for. Can Simon lure Andrew to his side with some soothing Buddy Holly, or will Dylan succeed with some over the top chopping?

A Film With A Sandler, And A Film With A Fanning

Andrew has now watched three of the brother’s movies suggestions, but has he enjoyed their choices? In this episode Simon tries to win him over with some wordplay, while Dylan warms his heart with a familiar song. Andrew also brings up this little slice of home made cinema…

A Film With A Sauna, And One With A Father
