Well it’s about bloody time! That’s right Casta fans, we’re back with the first proper full real both here episode for months! We promise to try and behave from now on and keep it up 😀

We’ve got reviews of Tin Tin, We Need to Talk about Kevin, The Ides of March, Contagion and In Time as well as some waffle and not a lot else – apart from when it all cocked up in the dying seconds (minutes).

We’ll be back soon with more! Promise!

Do you love Gary Oldman? If so then you’ll love episode 44c of Casta La Vista as Chris goes off on a bit of a love fest for everybody’s favourite super versatile middle aged English acting gentleman. Inbetween the gushing there’s also reviews of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Change Up and Warrior and of course some TRAILER POWER!

Trailers in this episode’s Trailer Power are; The Rum DiaryExtremely Loud and Incredibly CloseWe Need to Talk about Kevin, John Dies at the End and Paranormal Activity 3.

Hopefully Brother W will have finished his jaunt by the time the next episode rolls around so we should be back up to full Casta team power by then. Big thanks go out to Adam Cadwell again for kindly guest hosting a second time (and doing it much better this time around!).

Episode 44b – So I Married a Cast Murderer

So I Married a Cast Murderer (right click and “save as” for download)

Brother Wakeman is off on honeymoon but no fear! Casta La Vista is still here to sate your filmic hunger! What do we really know about Chris’ new bride? Not a lot actually… she could end up being a Cast Murderer! (booo!) . Given this potentially horrific course of events, we thought we’d treat you to a late summer horror special!

Casta La Vista is by no means a one man sho, so guest hosting this episode is the fancastic friend of the show Adam Cadwell; listen in as he bumbles his way through the regular Casta content as we (amongst other things) review Friends with Benefits, Apollo 18 and Kill List.

The trailers discussed in this episode’s Trailer Power (*insert lightning here*) were: 30 Minutes or Less, MelancholiaDream House and Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark and as referenced in the dying seconds of the episode, I am Legend 2: Awakening.

We’ll be back for another Wakeman-less episode in a fortnight. Kisses!

The trailers in this episode’s TRAILER POWER!!! (or as Chris wrote it; TrailerPower) are; Blackthornthe Woman in Black, Abduction, Margaret, Puncture & The Father of Invention. Let us know your thoughts on these or any other trailers out right now.

We’ve got reviews of Super 8, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Mr Popper’s Penguins for you, as well as some new inbetween bits and Castamind’s replacement – let’s hope it’s good enough to live up to the high quality demands of Adam Castwell!
