The Radio Verulam Film Guide: 17th January 2014

Tonight saw the return of Simon to the Film Guide hotseat after an extended period away. Chris had to fill in for him before Christmas and last week the show was off so Simon was a tad rusty. Not because he had been away so long but because of the terrible weather. You see, Simon is part machine. If you're imagining something like The Terminator then you are miles away. It is in fact more akin to the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz. You see, if it rains quite a lot (as it has been doing recently) then he starts to rust and cannot move very much. It explains his somewhat stiff delivery and lack of animation....

Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was here to talk about the UK box office and the best films on free-to-air TV for the coming three days.
