It's Xmas again, boy has it come around fast, and so perhaps for the final time I've pulled the Filmstalker Film Club together to talk about the best Xmas films and it's producing plenty of disagreements between the three of us, let's see if you agree, or more likely you don't.

Because we've talked about the best Xmas films before we've decided to pick a couple of lists from other sources to discuss, and so we have the Empire readers best Christmas films and a similarly themed, but very different list from The Observer, and we work our way through them and have a few debates on the way.

If you would like to join in with future audiocasts either by calling into the audio to fire us a question or join in the conversation, or just email some questions after you've watched the film, drop me a line through the site (www.filmstalker.co.uk), on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/Filmstalkers), Twitter (Filmstalker), or even email.

Round 8 was recorded some time ago, you'd never guess as it was in tribute to the death of the actor Dennis Hopper, yes it is that old. However it's still very relevant as we each chose a film of his - Hoosiers, The Osterman Weekend and Blue Velvet. Blue Velvet was the winner and the resulting discussion is no doubt going to prove a little controversial, especially for fans of the film and of David Lynch. So watch the film, download the podcast, and prepare to get wound up.

Round 7, and we’re handing over to Mark for his choices. He chose three films which didn’t seem to have any connection, well we couldn’t figure it out, but he thankfully put us right when we got round to recording the audiocast.

The film that was selected from his list was Tin Cup, the 1996 comedy starring Kevin Costner, Rene Russo, Don Johnson and Cheech Marin, as well as a number of real golfers.

It’s never a film that appealed to me but I think we were all pleasantly surprised. So take a look at it, download the podcast, and lay up along with the three of us.

We've looked through the winners of the 2011 Orange BAFTA awards and discussed what should, and shouldn't have won. We've gone off on tangents about what awards are really about, the Academy Awards, gesture/end of life awards and if there should be an award for franchise or sequel.

There's a lot in here, but we've managed to cram it into the usual timeframe, and with Mark and Steven I think we've got a nice little audiocast here, come and join us for some film related banter.

This episode myself, Mark and Steven run through our favourite films of 2010, as well as a number of other topics from mobile cinema to the highest grossing UK films, we might go off on tangents, but they’re worthwhile and definitely entertaining. Our longest audiocast to date, but it’s also one of the best. Hop on and hear if we pick your best film of 2010.

This time round we're breaking from the usual format to talk about Christmas films. We each took our own top Christmas films to try and agree between us what are the best films about Christmas. Surprisingly we disagreed and digressed, and we ended up talking about a number of other things.

What makes a Christmas film became a big topic, what we remember being on television at Christmas when we were younger popped up, and an ongoing debate about whether a certain action film is a Christmas film or not raged throughout.

So download, have a listen and pop over to Filmstalker to tell us if we’re talking nonsense or not and what you think should be in that list of top Christmas films.

Round 6 saw the choices return to me again, and since this coincided with the F1 season I decided to pick three racing films depicting three different classes of racing.

The winner wasn't really a surprise, and it turned out to promote some debate between us. It was John Frankenheimer's classic 1966 film, Grand Prix starring a host of international stars.

We discuss the film as well as delving into some very interesting behind the scenes facts. It's a good episode this month and took quite a bit of editing!

We've interrupted the normal rounds of the Filmstalker Film Club to do a special edition of the Audiocast looking at the free film site IndieMoviesOnline.com.

Each of us has selected a short film from their totally free film archives and we chat about them in the one episode. If you'd like to join us then the three films are Programme X: Secret Weapons, Where's the Money Ronnie?, and I Am Bob. One is bad, one good, and the other great, so it's a real mixed bag. Watch them and join in the audiocast.

Now we move onto Steven for this round of choices. His are very eclectic and I was expecting a challenge. What Mark and I were not expecting was to enjoy the film so much.

Now rather than leave you hanging about what film this is, and considering there are many spoilers in the audiocast discussion of the film, I'm going to tell you up front what the film we've chosen is so that you can watch it and then download the audiocast.

Round 5's film is...Talk to Her (Hable con Ella) from Pedro Almodóvar.

It's been a long break but the Filmstalker Film Club audiocast is back with Round 4. Just to remind you, each month the next member of the club chooses three films, connected in some way, for the other members to vote on. The winner is the film we all watch and then a few weeks later get together to talk about.

This episode sees the choices start to move round the club, and so Mark has selected the three films and it's up to the rest of the club to select the film we review. Find out what we chose, and why Mark chose his three films, in this latest round.

Remember you can join in either calling into the audio to fire us a question, join in the conversation, or just email in a question or two after you've watched the same film. Drop me a line on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/Filmstalkers), Twitter (Filmstalker), or even email.

Enjoy, and this time we should be back regularly!
