#22: Enola Holmes, A Life on Our Planet, The Karate Kid, London Film Festival, cinemas in crisis The Block Busters Podcast

When news broke that the new James Bond movie will be delayed we were in pieces. That’s why we spend most of the news section talking about the dire situation that cinemas in the UK – and everywhere else – are in. But we also discuss other things, like surprising casting additions to upcoming ‘Spider-Man 3’ movie. And we learn what gave Conor chills in the childhood.Our movie reviews and What have we’ve been watching sections cover new releases like ‘Enola Holmes’, film festivals and some classic hits, like ‘Batman Forever’ and ‘The Karate Kid’. This show is almost as well balanced as Ralph Macchio doing ‘the crane’ in his final fight.
