This week Paul covers Australia (the film, not the entire country), Jon covers The Spirit, and leaves slightly more confused than before he saw it, and they both review The Reader, which doesn't warrant a flippant addition because it's a serious film. "Desert Island Flicks" asks for their favourite black and white movie, producing an unexpected choice on both counts, and Paul hopes he hasn't caused the death of someone he knows by mistake. Or deliberately, come to think of it.

Our audience figures are steadily increasing (over 100 downloads of the latest episode in just the last week, which took us by surprise), and here's hoping they keep going in that direction. Please email us with your thoughts and comments (using the contact form on this site), post reviews (positive, ideally!) on itunes, and tell all your friends about the brilliance (ahem) of Movie Banter.
