Every week, Kristopher Pollard from Milwaukee Film and Radio Milwaukee’s Dori Zori talk about movies — because that’s what you do when you’re Cinebuds.

This week, we talk about something we loved on the small screen that was then made for the big screen, but then we watched it on the small screen. … They made a LUTHER movie!

If you’re not familiar with it, Luther is a BBC show made for television starring Idris Elba as the titular Luther, a detective in London who's just really, really good at being a detective. But he's got his own special approach, as all good detectives do.

Now, they've adapted the character to a film — officially titled Luther: The Fallen Sun — with Elba returning and Andy Serkis (and his very questionable hairdo) as the bad guy. Does the film hold up against the very popular show? Does the serial killer-y plot keep us on the edge of our seat? Is Elba still very handsome? Find out in the podcast!
