The Breakdown of 'Aquaman', 'Bumblebee', 'Mary Poppins Returns', 'Roma', 'Dumplin' and Remembering Penny Marshall


It is Christmas Eve and the day we all eagerly await the jolly man in red to deliver joy and gifts. The Movie Breakdown has its own sack of presents in reviews for five new movies. It is a diverse array of pictures including the latest superhero tentpole in Aquaman and we also zoom back into the Transformers universe in Bumblebee. We also have a sequel to a family musical classic with the aptly titled Mary Poppins Returns. You want some Netflix originals, well we have two of those. The big one is the major Oscar content in Roma, and then we have a coming of age comedy in Dumplin'. After all the movie review, we pay tribute to the talented comedic actor and director Penny Marshall. It is our final traditional movie review show of 2018 and we end with a packed 90 minutes plus. Thank you so much for listening to us every week this year, and we hope you love the show. If you do, then the greatest way to show your appreciation is spread the word on social media or tell other movie fans about us so we can grow to be something even greater in 2019.

Reminder that you can now subscribe either to The Movie Breakdown feed (a subscription link is at the top right hand of this site) or on iTunes (if you enjoy the show, please help us by giving us a five star review).
