The trouble with Roland Emmerich films is that they're all essentially the same movie. In this week's podcast we react to 2012, one of his many identikit end-of-world thrillers featuring much CGI destruction and precious little character development.

Tune in to hear our thoughts on John Cusack phoning it in, mid-movie Bentley commercials, the unsung heroism of Gordon the Plastic Surgeon and much more, including drinking games, listener submissions and sequel pitches!


Beyond the Box Set is a movie podcast with a twist. Each week we take a look at a well-known standalone movie and compete to pitch ridiculous sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen.
