Well, we've made it! 52 episodes and still going strong - yes, The Hollywood Booze is a year old and all of the boys, Joseph Upton, Dave Bennett, Tom Fordy and Paul Heath, are all back together to celebrate the occasion of a bottle of bubbly, a few shot shots and a bag full of beers.

This week, the four discuss what they've been watching, run down with the pun down of the top ten films of The Booze's lifetime, looking at the upcoming releases for April and May, Dave and Fordy have a cheesy line face off and we review GOOD VIBRATIONS and Paul does his very best to review G.I. JOE RETALIATION.

It’s that time of week again! It is indeed time to kick off your shoes, unzip your pants and undo that shirt a little. Relax! Open your ears and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Booze.

This week, its the big one, episode #50 of you favourite boozy movie podcast, presented this week by Joe Upton, Big Balls Dave Bennett and Dan Fraser.

This week's episode is brought to you by Nils Oscar God lager.

Dark orange-gold in colour. Cold-fermentation lagered beer with a soft and sweetish fluffy nose; nose: gently toasty, a juicy malty biscuity character, a restrained citrus orange in the background. Initial impressions on the palate are of its intense bitterness and a lasting dry finish that is reminiscent of the breakfast cereal Grape Nuts; or imagine a hay barn in the summer when it hasn’t rained for a while and you can almost taste the dryness in the air. The beer delivers a vigorous piney and resiny palate-scrubbing effect to the palate, there’s also a light bittersweet side to it; this is a sexy Marilyn Monroe of a lagered beer, a beer that sways onto the palate expressing big bold flavour colours as well as soft and seductive notes.

It's Saturday! Yes, Saturday. You weren't expecting this were you? The other evening after watching OZ, THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, which is released in UK and US cinemas next week, Fordy and Paul tip-toed to the Imperial Arms pub at the back of Leicester Square in London to record a very special episode of The Hollywood Booze.

Positioned as an interim episode between episode #48 and next week's episode #49, The Smell Of Beer sees the two talk about anything that comes to mind in terms of film, including initial thoughts on Oz, what the two have been watching since we last caught up with them, and surprisingly a very heart felt section where Fordy turns into a proper journalist and interviews Paul about the history of The Hollywood News, from conception to the present day. What started out as a bit of a giggle, swiftly turns into an emotional journey, and if you're involved in any form of blogging, film writing and criticism, you won't want to miss this rare glimpse into the mind of a Hollywood mav.... I'm taking the piss. But I hope you like it.


Paul and Fordy.
