August 20 - 20:00 UTC
Take 2: In the Loop
A relentless avalanche of insults and frantically trying to arrange meetings.
August 18 - 20:00 UTC
Take 2: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
The Robert Downey Jr revival that led to Iron Man. The two films could not be further apart but it’s clear to see how his easy confidence and sharp comic timing made him the best man to lead up the Marvel Universe.
August 18 - 17:00 UTC
Take 2: Sideways
Paul Giamatti is so good in this it’s hard to believe he is anything other than a neurotic wine lover/bore.
August 17 - 20:00 UTC
Take 2: Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
Another brilliant piece of work that was largely misunderstood on its release, now regarded as one of the great comedies of the 2000s.
August 17 - 14:00 UTC
Take 2: Wet Hot American Summer
A misunderstood gem that bombed when it came out, but has since spawned two seasons of a TV show starring its original cast. Funny how the world works.
August 16 - 20:00 UTC
Take 2: O Brother, Where Art Thou?
This one will always have a special place in my heart. The first Coen Brothers film I ever saw, and one of those that at an early age made me realise that movies can be more than just Batman.

August 12 - 20:00 UTC

OK so I watched this last year. On our comedy time travel trip (I should really come up with a name for it) I’ve been skipping over stuff I watched not that long ago but I’ve always got time for Office Space.
August 08 - 19:00 UTC
Take 2: Galaxy Quest
A masterclass in casting.
August 07 - 21:00 UTC
Take 2: Election
Alexander Payne loves shitting on his characters to a point where they are beyond redemption. Reese Witherspoon plays a lead so irritating and smug that you could almost call it a brave performance. Matthew Broderick plays her teacher, who through sheer dislike of her tries to rig a school election to prevent her from winning.
August 06 - 20:00 UTC
Take 2: Rushmore
I love that Dirk Calloway is the smartest person in this film.
August 05 - 19:00 UTC
Take 2: The Big Lebowski
Again our trip through comedy history takes us past favourites we’d be foolish not to watch again, man.
August 04 - 20:00 UTC
Take 2: Fargo
One of the greatest films ever made? You betcha!
August 04 - 15:00 UTC

Take 2: Groundhog Day
Well you can be sure as heck fire I’ll be re-watching this today!
August 02 - 20:00 UTC
My Cousin Vinny
When a couple of New York kids in Alabama get charged for a murder they didn’t commit, they must call on their brash and inexperienced cousin Vinny to defend them.
August 01 - 20:00 UTC
Take 2: Wayne's World
I haven’t seen this since I was about 13, and now I finally kind of get it. It’s still going to take a lot to convince me that it was worth all the hype it got, but this time round I actually found Wayne’s World funny.
August 01 - 17:00 UTC
Some high school kids sneak out of their respective homes to go to a house party.
July 31 - 20:00 UTC
Take 2: When Harry Met Sally...
Like Harry and Sally’s much-discussed Casablanca, this is a screenplay that doesn’t ever take a misstep.
July 30 - 21:00 UTC
Take 2: Midnight Run
I only saw this a couple of years ago but I loved it back then, and it felt too good to pass up on our midnight run through comedy history.
July 30 - 19:00 UTC
A Fish Called Wanda
A heist goes wrong and the loot winds up in a secret location. The members of the gang each try to ascertain its whereabouts in different ways.

Coming To America
An African prince (Eddie Murphy) goes to New York to escape his arranged marriage and find a bride in America instead.
July 27 - 21:00 UTC
Take 2: Raising Arizona
Nic Cage makes either the best movies ever made or the worst. This one I never tire of coming back to.
July 24 - 21:00 UTC
Take 2: The Princess Bride
Watch Mandy Patinkin carve out one of the most memorable characters in movie history for himself, using one line.

July 23 - 21:00 UTC
Take 2: Ferris Bueller's Day Off
This gets slapped on a lot of ‘best 80s movies’ lists but it’s really ageless. Everyone hates boring teachers. Everyone loves freedom. Charisma is timeless and this trio has buckets of it.
July 22 - 21:00 UTC
Take 2: This is Spinal Tap
Still relevant, which is to say that Hollywood documentaries about music have barely changed over the years.
