Thelma & Louise 2: Flying Thunderbird

April 12, 2021

Everyone knows Thelma and Louise died when they drove their car over the edge of the Grand Canyon. What this podcast presupposes is... maybe they didn’t?

Join us as we react to the definitive female buddy movie of the 90s from director Ridley Scott, including our thoughts on dangerous driving, curiously empty highways, Brad Pitt's Best Supporting Abs and much more!

Con Air 2: Air Con

Con Air 2: Air Con

March 29, 2021

It's been... ooh, three weeks since we last did a Nicholas Cage movie on this podcast. What can we say, the man has our heart - and the utterly demented Con Air has been on our to-do list for quite some time.

Tune into this week's episode to hear our thoughts on cocaine-fuelled dialogue, wandering accents, soiled bunnies, *that* hairstyle and much, much more!

The Bodyguard 2:The Shoddyguard

The Bodyguard 2:The Shoddyguard

March 8, 2021

Of all the singers who branched out into acting in the 90s, few nailed the cross-promotional opportunities as successfully as Whitney Houston. Not only was The Bodyguard an enormous box office hit, it also spawned the defining song of her career in I Will Always Love You.

On this week's podcast, we react to the original film and give our thoughts on reed herrings, clunky cameos, the inexplicable appeal of Kevin Costner and much more - plus drinking games, listener submissions and, of course, sequel pitches!

In Bruges 2: In Brugatory

December 14, 2020

Our season of not-quite-Christmas movies continues with a sharp uptick in quality, courtesy of Martin McDonagh's 2008 black comedy In Bruges. 

This is a first-time viewing experience for John, while Harry watched the film shortly after visiting the city as part of his 2016 inter-railing trip around Europe. Is it really the tedious hell-hole Colin Farrell perceives it as to be? Tune in to find out as we break down our reactions to the movie and attempt to pitch some sequel ideas!

Reindeer Games 2: Away In a Manger

Reindeer Games 2: Away In a Manger

December 7, 2020

Our alternative festive season continues this week with Reindeer Games, a bizarre attempt to put a festive twist on a Tarantino-style crime thriller. 

Released in February 2000 to terrible reviews and negligible box office, the film stars Ben Affleck as Rudi, an ex-con who poses as his deceased former cellmate in order to win the heart of a lonely woman played by Charlize Theron. However, he quickly regrets his deception when he's dragged into a complex criminal plot to stage a heist at a local casino. 

In this week's episode, we discuss overly complex plot mechanics, bizarrely shoehorned-in Christmas references, disturbing kissing technique and much more. As always, we also throw in some drinking games, catch up with our listeners and pitch some improbable sequel ideas!

Leon: The Houseplant

Leon: The Houseplant

September 13, 2020

One of the most provocative hit movies of the 90s, Luc Besson's Leon introduced a young Natalie Portman to the world and helped reinvent Gary Oldman as one of the all-time great scenery-chewing bad guys. 

In this week's podcast, we discuss traumatic childhood viewing experiences, sexual weirdness, stealth vegan propaganda and much more - plus the usual blend of drinking games, listener reactions and sequel pitches!

Focus 2: Fortune Hunters

Focus 2: Fortune Hunters

August 31, 2020

Our Will Smith summer has seen the likable A-lister dipping his toes into a number of genres, from action to comic book to post-apocalyptic sci-fi. In Focus, we find him in Soderbergh territory, leading a stylish crime thriller of the kind usually reserved for the likes of George Clooney. 

It's a good fit for someone with Smith's charisma, and although the script isn't nearly as clever as it thinks it is, it's one of the better films we've watched this season.

Tune in to hear our thoughts on obnoxious side-characters, the inexorable rise of Margot Robbie, BD Wong's unacceptable moustache and more - plus drinking games, sequel pitches and listener reactions.

Each week on Beyond The Box Set, we take a look back at a classic one-off movie and attempt to pitch ridiculous sequel, prequel or spin off ideas to bring them back to the big screen. We've been featured in The Guardian, on the front page of Apple Podcasts and in many other places, so check us out and prepare to see some of your favourite movies in a whole new light!
