In our new Podcast Series named Review Avenue Streetlight, we discuss and dissect a different film each episode. We go through the film in depth, discussing the plot and pivotal scenes so fair warning for SPOILERS!
On this episode, we’re boarding Jan De Bont’s 1994 action and bomb packed bus Speed. We’re taking the brakes off too and change things up in terms of structure and take a more conversational route. There’s still plenty of film facts you may not have known, more mistakes than ever before and Oliver shows how awful of a Question Master he would make in the Podcast Quiz!
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the episode and of the film itself. You can:
