The next episode, looking at Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) was the scene of a couple of firsts for the HMC podcast. It was the first (and so far only) time we all sat in the same room and watched a film, and it was the first time we all agreed on how we felt about a film. But did we love it or hate it?

Home Movie Club Episode 7 - "I have a bad feeling about this..."

1977 saw the release of the phenomenon that was Star Wars!
But were we blown away by the 1970s special effects (no Special Editions here, this is the original cut) or did we all think it was just a pile of poo-doo?

...

David, Jo, Daisy and Sami discuss sand and space battles in this first foray into George Lucas' blockbuster franchise.

All set 'A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...'

Last time it was Harry Potter 1, next time it will be Star Wars...

Happy to say that the next couple of episodes are edited and queued. Next up we have a little thing called Star Wars and then, following that is the 1935 hit, Mutiny on the Bounty, with Clarke Gable and a lot of seamen.

Home Movie Club Episode 6 - "I Should Not Have Said That."

You're a Wizard, Harry!

This time we look at the highest grossing movie of 2001, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. (Known as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, if you live in the US...)

...

Although at over two hours long, is JK Rowling's first book to movie transition magical, or does it get bogged down with too many characters and too much happening for a children's film?

This time we look at The French Connection. Will the mix of slow pacing, sudden action and confusing questions make this a Class A film for us, or just a disapp...ointing bust?

As always David, Jo, Daisy and Sami talk about what they like and dislike with this film, but will we have finally found a film we all liked? Surely not?

Enjoy
