The Oddjob Pod crew are back at the Action Movie Landfil. This time is was Gary's turn to fish out a dusty VHS, slot it into the machine and see if it's worth keeping or chucking back on the pile. His choice? An absolute doozy: Paul Michael Glazer's distopian sci-fi actioner, The Running Man starring Arnold Scwarzenegger. Download the podcast here …

In this particularly brown episode of The Oddjob Pod, Gary, Terry and Graham don their colour corrected glasses and ceremonial Blofeld wigs and take a close look at Spectre.

Sam Mendes Skyfall marked a a stylistic departure at a time when the James Bond franchise was undergoing a renaissance with the Daniel Craig era.

The Oddjob Pod’s foray into the action movies of the sell-through era continues with Shane Black’s 2005 film, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

The film is a meta, fourth-…

In this episode of the Oddjob Pod we celebrate Daniel Craig’s first film in the role of James Bond: Casino Royale.

Daniel Craig was a controversial cas…

Gary, Graham and Terry complete their review of Pierce Brosnan's canon with Die Another Day. Regular listeners will know that, despite its incredibly strong opening act, this is not our favourite entry.

The early 90s was a fallow period for James Bond fans. With Tim Dalton confirmed as not returning to the role of 007 and Eon Productions embroiled in legal disputes it looked like JB may never return to the big screen. And James Bond was also meeting his match in the shape of a host of ambitious action and spy thrillers produced by the emboldened H…

No sooner had the Dalton era started but it finished. The second film starring Timothy Dalton and James Bond 007 has its critics and did not perform as well as had been hoped in the box office.

Unlike our Thunderball podcast, where we received a negative reaction to our opinions, we weren't expecting too many people to leap to the defence of Diamonds Are Forever. Least of all ourselves.

The lavish sets, exotic locations, and iconic villain mark it as one of the most visually impressive Bond films which has, over time, become a cultural touchstone.
