Taking the Action to the Syndicate

When I'm not writing, I co-host Bags of Action, a monthly action movie podcast, with my friend Steve Aryan. In each episode we pick a film and spend about an hour picking it apart, before both giving it a score - between 1 and 5 Bags of Action. We've talked about a mix of classic movies we've seen numerous times, like Predator and Point Break, through to new films we're seeing for the first time, like John Wick and Creed. Every now and then we might do a triple bill, with three episodes dedicated to the same action star. 


From May we'll be moving home to be part of the hugely popular Geek Syndicate network, so I thought now was a good time to let you know what films we've covered in the past few years, as they are all still sitting on the old feed. if you wanted to check them out.
