The Film Guide with Simon Carver
Each week The St Albans Podcast Film Guide will look at the UK cinema box office top 10, as well as the new releases in our local cinemas. Additionally, our intrepid guide Simon will choose his selection of the best films on free-to-air TV for the forthcoming week.
Simon has been interested in films since childhood, when his father took him to watch Zulu. He has now seen it on a number of occasions and he still enjoys it. This may be because his memory’s not what it was and he forgets how it ends. Simon’s day job is Senior Minister at Dagnall Street Baptist Church and he enjoys reflecting on theological motifs in films. He has contributed to Flickering Images,a book on theology and film. He has been a broadcaster on BBC Local Radio and is currently Premier Radio’s film reviewer. For a Baptist, Simon has a fairly catholic taste in films and his favourites include Random Harvest, Casablanca, Don’t Look Now,Terminator 2 and anything starring Dennis Quaid or Sandra Bullock.
