Episode 157 - Sabrina (1954)


Stinking Pause – the movie review podcast with Scott, who this week is joined by Paul and Charlie to chat about Gallic gastronomy, fractured champagne flutes and elusive olives.

It’s 1954, it’s Audrey Hepburn, it’s Humphrey Bogart, it’s William Holden….it’s a slice of classic Hollywood. Join us as we take a look at the Billy Wilder directed ‘Sabrina’.

“Chauffeur's daughter Sabrina (Audrey Hepburn) returns home from two years in Paris a beautiful young woman, and immediately catches the attention of David (William Holden), the playboy son of her father's rich employers. David woos and wins Sabrina, who has always been in love with him, however their romance is threatened by David's serious older brother, Linus (Humphrey Bogart), who runs the family business and is relying on David to marry an heiress in order for a crucial merger to take place.”

“A woman happily in love, she burns the soufflé. A woman unhappily in love, she forgets to turn on the oven.”

Episode 156 - Trainspotting (1996)


After an absence of over fifty episodes and nearly three years the restraining order has finally been lifted.

Ladies and gentlemen…like a phoenix from the flames…yes he’s back. Join us as we welcome Charlie back into the ample bosom of the Stinking Pause family.

It’s an old school Stinking Pause episode – the original theme tune, all the old jingles, the return of Jim from Swanscombe and Six Degrees of Separation. It’s over two and a half hours long, but to be honest, there’s only about ten minutes of decent chat worth listening to.

First time listeners be warned….this is not the episode to begin your Stinking Pause journey.

Our review this episode (and boy do we make you wait before we get anywhere near it) is Trainspotting (1996), directed by Danny Boyle and starring Ewan McGregor, Johnny Lee Miller, Ewan Bremner, Robert Carlyle, Kelly MacDonald and Kevin McKidd.

‘Danny Boyle's explosive film tracks the misadventures of young men in Edinburgh trying to find their way out of joblessness, aimless relationships and drug addiction. Some are successful, while others hopelessly are not. Based on Irvine Walsh's novel, Trainspotting melds grit with poetry, resulting in a film of harsh truths and stunning grace.’

Episode 155 - To Catch A Thief (1955)


Stinking Pause – the movie review podcast with Scott, who this week is joined by Paul to chat about Cannes, cat burglars and Cary Grant

It’s 1955, it’s Hitchcock, it’s Cary Grant, it’s Grace Kelly, it’s the south of France….a truly great combination for a truly classic movie – To Catch A Thief

For more than a decade, the dashing, retired jewel thief, John Robie, previously known as "The Cat", has been living quietly in his picture-perfect villa on the cosmopolitan, sun-kissed Côte d'Azur. However, someone is prowling the French Riviera, and as a spate of audacious diamond thefts is terrorising the Cannes, John will have no other choice but to spring back into action to clear his name. Indeed, John is caught between a rock and a hard place, and as if that weren't enough, the svelte and sophisticated nouveau-riche heiress, Frances Stevens, is on to him. But, who could be the real culprit? Above all, what will it take to catch a thief?

“Not only did I enjoy that kiss last night, I was awed by its efficiency.”

Episode 154 - To Kill A Mockingbird (1962)


Stinking Pause – the movie review podcast with Scott, who this week is joined by Paul to chat about hot, mad rabid dogs, holes in trees and Halloween ham costumes

It’s back to 1962 for a genuine Hollywood classic with an Oscar winning performance from the legendary Gregory Peck in the big screen adaptation of Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird

Based on Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning book of 1961. Atticus Finch is a lawyer in the fictional town of Maycomb, a racially divided Alabama town, set in the early 1930s, and modeled after Monroeville where Harper Lee grew up. Finch agrees to defend a young black man who is accused of raping a white woman. Many of the townspeople try to get Atticus to pull out of the trial, but he decides to go ahead. How will the trial turn out - and will it effect any changes in racial attitudes in Maycomb?

“... some men in this world are born to do our unpleasant jobs for us... your father is one of them.”

Episode 153 - Mutiny On The Bounty (1962)


Stinking Pause – the movie review podcast with Scott who this week is joined by Steven and Anthony

In this episode, Steven from the Reel Britannia podcast and Anthony from the Glass Onion:On John Lennon podcast are with Scott in the Balaban Sound Studio talking about the 1962 version of Mutiny On The Bounty, starring Trevor Howard and Marlon Brando

“You remarkable pig. You can thank whatever pig god you pray to that you haven't turned me into a murderer.”

1787. HMS Bounty, commanded by William Bligh, sets sail from Portsmouth. She is heading for Tahiti, on a mission to introduce breadfruit plants to Jamaica. It is Bligh's first command and it is soon apparent that he is happy to hand out severe punishments for the most minor infraction. The welfare of his men is also not of primary concern to him. All this not only puts him in conflict with the seamen but with his First Lieutenant, Fletcher Christian.

Episode 152 - Airplane (1980)


Stinking Pause – the movie review podcast with Scott who this week is joined by Paul and Liam

In this episode, Paul and Liam are with Scott in the Balaban Sound Studio talking about the 1980 comedy, Airplane starring Leslie Nielsen, Robert Stack and Lloyd Bridges

“Joey, have you ever been in a... in a Turkish prison?”

Drowning his sorrows after that botched mission during WWII, the traumatised former fighter pilot with a fear of flying, Ted Striker, still hasn't got over his old flame and flight attendant, Elaine Dickinson. Determined to win her back, Ted boards a domestic flight from Los Angeles to Chicago, only to come face-to-face with a severe case of in-flight food poisoning that is threatening everyone's lives. Now, with most of the passengers and the entire cockpit crew down with the food-borne illness, Striker has no other choice but to confront his inner demons and take over the control of the ungovernable aircraft with the help of a gruff air-traffic controller and his former commander. Can Ted land the plane and save them all?

Episode 151 - Superman: The Movie (1978)


Stinking Pause – the movie review podcast with Scott who this week is joined by Paul and Liam to discuss Superman The Movie from 1978 starring Christopher Reeve

Is it a bird…is it a plane? No it’s three guys sitting round chatting about possibly the finest superhero movie ever made (That’s Scott’s opinion. No one elses.)

“Do you know why the number two hundred is so vitally descriptive to both you and me? It's your weight and my I.Q.”

Just before the destruction of the planet Krypton, scientist Jor-El sends his infant son Kal-El on a spaceship to Earth. Raised by kindly farmers Jonathan and Martha Kent, young Clark discovers the source of his superhuman powers and moves to Metropolis to fight evil. As Superman, he battles the villainous Lex Luthor, while, as novice reporter Clark Kent, he attempts to woo co-worker Lois Lane
