Episode 362 - Flight of the Bumblebee


We're joined again by Andy from the Smorgaspod, and in this episode, it's all about the 'Bee.

Bumblebee has made his solo live action debut, set in the Eighties, and inspired by Eighties movies such as the John Hughes movies and Short Circuit, all set to a bangin' soundtrack of all our favourite hits from - you guessed it - the Eighties.

But is it any good? Is Travis Knight better at directing Robots in Disguise better than Michael Bay? And when John Cena is on screen, can you actually see him? All these questions and more will be answered!
