“You’re either SWAT or you’re not.”

Will and Dara take a look at SWAT (2003) the big screen reboot of an old, long forgotten, Seventies cop show.

After a considered discussion of the film’s puzzling structure and Hollywood’s approach to reboots, they try to answer such important questions as who likes Jeremy Renner and why Michelle Rodriguez always wears vests.

Episode 41.

March 01, 2017 08:58 AM PST

"Imagine the future, because you're not in it."

Will is joined by Nick Rehak from French Toast Sunday to look at the cult classic Stone Cold (1991). It marked the movie debut of the former American footballer turned actor Brian Bosworth.

In time honoured fashion, he plays a maverick cop who plays by his own rules trying to bring down a biker gang run by Lance Henriksen. The result is one of the most explosive films ever committed to celluloid. And more importantly it features a truly legendary exploding helicopter.

Episode #40

January 21, 2017 01:49 AM PST

“They hate us, because they ain’t us.”

Will and Dara take a look at one of the most controversial films of recent times, The Interview (2014).

They try to work out how on earth this film caused a diplomatic storm, an embarrassing email scandal, and how it became a totem for free speech.

They also take a look at what could be one of the greatest exploding helicopters of all-time.

Episode 39.

December 27, 2016 05:54 AM PST

“We're going to make you indestructible - but first, we're gonna have to destroy you.”

Will is joined by Bubba Wheat from Flights, Tights and Movie Nights to look at X Men Origins: Wolverine (2009).

Among the topics of discussion why cool guys don’t look at explosions, heroes with under-powered superpowers and a personality free exploding helicopter.

Episode 38.

December 11, 2016 03:21 AM PST

“Well I told you what we had to do, shoot down the helicopters.”

Will and Dara take a look at Charlie Wilson’s War (2007) a film which tells the true story of America’s involvement in the Soviet/Afghan war.

Among the topics of discussion Tom Hanks’ weirdly sex scene free career, whether exploding helicopters were the key to ending the Cold War, and of course film’s six chopper fireballs.

Episode 37.

November 23, 2016 12:33 PM PST

“Oh brother, somebody gonna kiss the donkey!”

Will is joined by Nick Rehak from French Toast Sunday to look at the most important film in the exploding helicopter genre BATTLESHIP (2012), a movie that features a record-breaking 8 (eight) helicopter explosions.

Our intrepid hosts also discuss chicken burritos, old dudes kicking butt, and whether this alien invasion movie, isn’t really about an alien invasion.

Episode 36.

October 22, 2016 05:23 AM PDT

“God damn, if I’d just been a couple minutes early he’d be breathing now.”

Will and Dara pull on their diving suits, hook up their oxygen line and plunge into nautical biopic Men Of Honor (2000).

Among the topics of discussion: the strange demise of Cuba Gooding Jr’s career, Robert De Niro impressions, and one of the worst exploding helicopter scenes we’ve ever had the misfortune to witness.

Episode 35.

September 24, 2016 06:39 AM PDT

“You just killed a helicopter with a car.”

On this show we’re looking at Die Hard 4.0 (2007) a film that includes one of the greatest ever helicopter explosions.

So, in keeping with the movie, Exploding Helicopter’s cranky old podcast presenter Will, is joined by an irritating youthful sidekick - Daniel from Get Reel Movies - for a show that’s a pale shadow of previous installments.

Episode 34.

August 27, 2016 12:57 PM PDT

“What does it take to change the essence of a man?”

On this show Will and Dara don eccentrically tasselled jackets and tie their hair into ponytails to look at On Deadly Ground (1994), Steven Seagal’s bizarre attempt to save the environment via the medium of action cinema.

They also examine what has been described as “one of the screen’s greatest ever exploding helicopters.”

Episode #33

July 31, 2016 01:09 AM PDT

“Do we get to win this time?”

On this show Will sharpens his Bowie knife, ties on a bandana and perms his mullet in readiness to talk about Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985).

Guesting on this show are Barry and Jairo from the True Bromance film podcast. Among the topics of discussion, revenge fantasies, the technical definition of a mullet, and Rambo as homoerotic icon.

They also look at a spectacular exploding helicopter and ponder the classic philosophical question: If a helicopter blows up in a forest and there’s no-one there to see it, did it actually explode?
