About The Show

The Raw Footage Podcast is a film review show hosted by Colin Gazeley from Bath, England, where as soon as I come out of the cinema I record my raw, unedited thoughts about the film I've just seen. I then release these reviews in podcast form with only minor edits for clarity and excess background noise.

The basic philosophy of this show is that the initial impression you get of a film is often the most accurate one.

THE TRAILERS FOR THIS FILM GIVE AWAY FAIRLY BIG SPOILERS. IT WOULDN'T BE A TERRIBLE IDEA TO WATCH THEM, BUT I LEAVE IT TO THE READERS DISCRETION.
