This week on the Sordid Cinema podcast, Thomas O’Connor joins Patrick Murphy and Simon Howell to discuss Steven Soderbergh’s out-of-retirement heist flick, Logan Lucky. It’s great to have the director back again (even though he hadn’t left for very long) but is his new movie able to entertain? Tune in and find out.
In the second half of the show, we dig into the archives and provide a review of M. Night Shyamalan’s Split, a segment we recorded way back at the start of the year and never released. The writer/director’s latest offering had the crew divided and you’re not going to want to miss this debate between Ricky, Simon and Patrick. All this and more.

With Sony in such a strong position at the moment and thus better placed than the competition to indulge in the odd passion project or two, wouldn’t now be the perfect time to revisit some of the platform’s former successes?
Pokémon Gold and Silver remain the greatest Pokémon games made to this day.
If the second season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer shows us anything, it's a renewed sense of confidence in itself. Like its characters, Buffy is a hell of a lot more sure of itself in its second year. particularly as the season goes on. While "Halloween" showed that this show was more than willing to get silly for an episode, "Bewitched, Bewildered and Bothered" doubles down on that to glorious effect.
