Heathers + The Third Murder + Von Ryan's Express + Fight Club - Eclectica #171

The Legend of Cedric

Graham's been practising his terrible Jason Statham impersonation for a whole week, but in the end it's Mark who covers the Stath's shark-'em-up The Meg. Rob, Aidan and Graham, meanwhile, turn their attention to Michael Lehmann's cult classic Heathers, now back in cinemas for its thirtieth anniversary. Is it still so very, or has it accrued some damage?

A full Off the Shelf sees Rob looking at an uncharacteristic film by one of his favourite directors - Hirokazu Koreeda - in Arrow Academy's new release The Third Murder, Graham goes in the slammer with Frank Sinatra and Leslie Howard in The Premium Collection's triple-format release of Von Ryan's Express, and Aidan initiates our new feature Devil's Advocate. For its first run-out, we're asking a question that could result in fisticuffs: is David Fincher's Fight Club really any good?

Apologies for the background noise this week, Rob's water tank was kicking out all sorts of noise. It shouldn't stop you from enjoying this week's packed episode.
