We Paid To See This

A light-hearted comedic movie podcast focusing on the week's new cinema releases. Darren Hayes and Anthony Armentano spend their hard earned (or borrowed) cash to see the latest film releases and tell you what they thought. Because they don't get in for free, their opinions are honest. Honestly! May contain funny bits (they're both Groundlings trained improvisers) and strange non sequiturs (Anthony has a degree in film and Darren has an Olympic medal in rambling). Maybe some naughty words too.

Cheeky little bonus episode so you don't forget about us!

Dec 21, 2016

Entire episode dedicated to the Star Wars film 'Rogue One' - directed by Gareth Edwards and starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelssohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker.  This is a must listen if you've seen the film and want to break it down for better or for worse.  Find out what we loved and what we didn't - and get some interesting back story in to the origin of the story and thoughts on the reasons for such extensive re-shooting and the differences between the theatrical trailer and what ended up on the screen. 'The Force is strong and I am one with The Force!'  WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS IN THIS EPISODE! DO NOT LISTEN UNTIL YOU'VE SEEN THE FILM.

This week's show is pretty much the two of us bowing down and kissing the feet of the incredible Ryan Gosling / Emma Stone musical 'La La Land'.  Find out what sets it apart from other musicals and why you need to see it in a theatre.  We talk Casey Affleck / Michelle Williams drama 'Manchester By The Sea', the ensemble comedy holiday movie 'Office X-Mas Party' starring T.J Miller, Jason Bateman, Jennifer Anniston and the hilarious Kate McKinnon.  Plus we mention dark thriller 'The Eyes of my Mother'.  

Dec 6, 2016

Huge episode covering the Natalie Portman vehicle about former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in a chilling biopic 'Jackie' which examines her strength in the aftermath of the tragic assassination of JFK.  We discuss the new Tom Ford psychological thriller 'Nocturnal Animals' staring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal - the emotional teen angst of 'Edge of Seventeen' and the  Harry Potter spin-off 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'. Plus we talk about HBO's 'WestWorld' (includes spoilers but the segment is at the end of the show and there is fair warning to switch off if you haven't seen the show yet!).
