Third Issue: After Hours, Trainspotting 2 and Manchester by the Sea

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.

Second Issue: JFK, Chi-Raq and Trainspotting

January 30, 2017

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. 


First Issue: John Carpenter, Bill & Ted and La La Land

January 23, 2017

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'.

One Sensational Shot - Movie Podcast - Films of 2016 (Part One)

January 8, 2017

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.
