Skyfall and The Master are the top two items on the menu for this fortnight's The Parallax Podcast, hosted by critics Luke Buckmaster and Rich Haridy.

Is it as good as the critics say? You'll have to listen to find out. On DVD they discuss Australian musical crowd-pleaser The Sapphires and veteran filmmaker William Friedkin's Killer Joe, celebrated for Matthew McConaughey's grisly performance as a corrupt cop. Cult film guru Zak Hepburn joins them to continue the 007 theme but with a twist: conversation turns to the 1981 Filipino comedy/action For Your Height Only, starring 3 foot tall martial artist Weng Weng.
