Welcome to The Movie Ladder, the podcast hosted by the cinema loving, bearded idiots, Andy and Stu. On a regular basis we upload podcasts covering the latest news and reviews in the world of film, as well as talking a lot of crap along the way.

We give all the movies we see a rating out of 5 exciting stars (allowing half stars) and place them carefully onto a big metaphor: ‘The Movie Ladder’ so we can rank and rate the films in order of best to worst. As some movies receive the same rating we will make a decision as to which is better and place it onto the ladder accordingly. You can view our cupboard of ladders on this website.

If you would like to get in touch please tweet us @TheMovieLadder and we may even mention you on the show.



The Bearded Idiots


Andy was forged in the heart of Mt. Doom as the love child of a raptor and a calzone pizza. He has grown into a curious creature who enjoys long walks and bushes. Do not approach.

Some of his favourite films are:

Jurassic Park, 12 Angry Men, The Departed, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, WALL·E, Monty Python & The Holy Grail, and Inception.



Stuart was the result of a trip to a science spider museum where he was accidentally bitten by a radio-active ticket attendant. Today he is easily frustrated and likes bike rides and dark places. If seen avoid.

Some of his favourite films are:

Star Wars, Star Trek, Rocky, Lawrence of Arabia, Alien, District 9, Guardians of the Galaxy, Bronson, The Dark Knight, Team America, Sunshine, The Thing, Predator, and Pans Labyrinth.
