Luke's slow alphabetical journey through his DVDs continues with two Jean-Pierre Jeunet pictures - Amélie and Alien Resurrection. Certainly two sides of the cinematic coin.
Fletcher also emerges with Robert Pattinson from the Lost City of Z, via the cinema auditorium.

No A to Z this issue, so what's the plan? Well, we look at Beauty and the Beast, we explain proportional representation(?), we take care of Kong: Skull Island - I'm so sorry, John C. Reilly. We talk Girls and Get Out, then we go over to ten years of Hot Fuzz, hole up, have a cup of tea and wait for this whole thing to blow over. How's that for a slice of fried podcast?

I am ready, man. Ready to get it ON! Check it out! I am the ultimate podcast! State of the podcast art! Hey, listener, don't worry. Me and my squad of OSS podcasters will protect you! Check it out.
We got a salute to "Wild" Bill Paxton, a sortie through the Aliens films, a jig with The Last Boy Scout. We got Oscars snafus, Hollywood fake news! We got Jackie, we got Moonlight, we got Hidden Figures...!
OSS is reading right, man, look, and it's inside the room!

"Ladies and gentleman, this is your stewardess speaking. Thank you for choosing to fly OSS. Shortly, we'll be joining Captains Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker for the take-off to end all take-offs, Airplane. We regret any inconvenience the sudden shifts in tone may cause as One Sensational Shot makes its ascent to the serious matter of pledging support to a nationwide boycott of Cineworld. There's no reason to be alarmed as we cruise through the fog of war with an attenuated tour of Iraq 2 cinema. And it's back down to earth with a bump when we look ahead to host Luke Littleboy's impending nuptials! By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a podcast?"

Luke and Fletcher reflect on long-awaited sequel Trainspotting 2, along with Kenneth Lonergan's moving Manchester by the Sea.
We also launch 'Luke's A-Z', a trip through Luke's DVD collection, kicking off with Martin Scorsese's occasionally forgotten 1985 masterpiece 'After Hours'.
As such, Fletcher takes a look at OSS's top 'One Crazy Night' movies, where our heroes are committed to living out the entirety of their adventure over the course of one evening.
OSS - A Selection of 'One Crazy Night' movies
Into the Night

Luke and Fletcher look back at at Oliver Stone's controversial 1991 historical epic JFK; what it meant at the time and how it feels to watch it today in the 'post truth' climate (or whatever you want to call it).
Whilst Fletcher also gets excited for Trainspotting 2, and hints at his special costume choice for the premier, Luke catches up with Hunt for the Wilderpeople and accidently watches all of the theatrically released Prince films.
Fletcher also fills us in on Spike Lee's latest joint; the sadly over-looked Chi-Raq.

Reminiscing about the best John Carpenter moments, celebrating the anniversary of Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey and falling in love with La La Land; this is the first fully fledged edition of One Sensational Shot where we like to talk about the movies that matter most to us.
We also chat about some forgotten straight to DVD spin-offs and remember the days when films had 'theme songs'.

Part Two of our look at Fletcher's films of 2016 includes The Hateful Eight, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping,

The One Sensational Shot podcast is a place where we like to talk about the films that matter most to us. From the holy trinity of Johns (Landis, Carpenter and Hughes) to New Cinema's fresh-face directors of the 70s and 80s, we like to discuss movies that defined childhoods - as well as make as many trips to the cinema each week in anticipation of the latest releases. Our premier episode, features part one of our films of 2016.
