The Favourite stars Olivia Colman in an Oscar winning performance and Emma Stone in yet another average one. Rachel Weisz is there also and she's great as always. A weird greek guy who makes weird movies makes the most accessible film he possibly can.

In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.

Each week we take the best and worst films from a filmmaker or franchise and discuss why one worked and one didn't. And we use freakin maths to determine the best and worst, so no arguing. Unless you think science is wrong???...yeah thought so.
