WE SHARE THE SAME SKY For our 99th outing, we are taking a sunburnt dive into the "cheerful, melancholic and devastating" Aftersun starring Paul Mescal and Frankie Corio.

Dietrich thinks we are covering the Macarena, Alex has walked these streets and Ben wants you to listen to old episodes. Find us on Twitter, BlueSky,...

EVERYTHING I DO... ...oh man, this is a biggie. On this episode we are heading to the midlands for Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. On the music front, do movie songs get bigger than this?

GET LOST IN SALTBURN We are jumping on the bandwagon by chatting all things Saltburn, starring Barry Keoghan, Jacob Elordi, Rosamud Pike and *ahum* little Barry Keoghan.

On the music front, we mention the many songs in the movie but all the focus is on the Sophie Ellis-Bextor hit "Murder on the Dancefloor".

ELIO ELIO ELIO Come with us to the sunkissed villages of Northern Italy, where we find Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer demanding each other to Call Me By Your Name.
