In a very film-heavy edition of Crave!, Simon and Steve are a little puzzled by what to make of The Great Wall, the new Matt Damon vehicle set in mediaeval China. Steve is utterly blown away by T2 Trainspotting, the sequel to the 1996 classic. Simon’s torn on the subject of Silence, the new Martin Scorsese epic — in every sense — set mediaeval Japan. Pork Pie, the remake of the 1980 New Zealand film, impresses, while Split represents something of a return to form for M Night Shyamalan. And Fifty Shades Darker… well, you’ll just have to listen to the podcast to find out what Steve makes of this much-talked-about film.
On the music front, Steve has a few thoughts on whether it’s time for the B-52s or Simple Minds to hang up their microphones, and Simon simply can’t contain his excitement ahead of next week’s Bruce Springsteen concerts.
