Beyond The Box Set
Roland Emmerich‘s 2012

Roland Emmerich‘s 2012

September 19, 2021

The trouble with Roland Emmerich films is that they're all essentially the same movie. In this week's podcast we react to 2012, one of his many identikit end-of-world thrillers featuring much CGI destruction and precious little character development.

Tune in to hear our thoughts on John Cusack phoning it in, mid-movie Bentley commercials, the unsung heroism of Gordon the Plastic Surgeon and much more, including drinking games, listener submissions and sequel pitches!

When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie teamed up in 2005 for Mr & Mrs Smith, the result wasn't just a hit movie - it was a pop cultural sensation.

Hugo 2: Changing Faces

Hugo 2: Changing Faces

August 8, 2021

If every great director gets at least one commercially doomed vanity project, 2011's Hugo was Martin Scorcese's. A 2 hour plus love letter to classic cinema shot in luxurious 3D, the movie struggled to find a commercial audience on release, but it racked up 11 Oscar nominations and ultimately won five. 

On this week's episode, we discuss the movie magic on display, the 3D effects we wish we could have seen in the cinemas, the post Love Guru redemption of Ben Kingsley and much more, plus drinking games, listener submissions and sequel pitches!
