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!

Little Miss Sunshine 2: On The Road Again

Little Miss Sunshine 2: On The Road Again

April 5, 2021

Little Miss Sunshine was a true word-of-mouth sensation back in 2006, winning two Oscars and making a strong case for the introduction of a 'Best Performance by an Ensemble' category. 

The film stars Abigail Breslin as an adorable 8-year old whose dreams of winning the Little Miss Sunshine beauty pageant take her on the road trip of a lifetime with her seriously dysfunctional family. These include her on-the-rocks parents Greg Kinnear and Toni Collette, intentionally mute brother Paul Dano and suicidal gay uncle Steve Carrell. 

On this week's episode, we react to the movie and discuss some of our favourite moments - including Alan Arkin's effortless scene-stealing, the excellent use of character pairing and of course the Steve Carrell run...

We'll also brainstorm some drinking games, check in with our listeners for their reactions and pitch some sequel ideas to get the Hoover family back on the road!

You Can Count On Me

You Can Count On Me

March 22, 2021

Long before he found global fame in the MCU, Mark Ruffalo got his Hollywood break with You Can Count On Me, a bittersweet comedy-drama from writer-director Kenneth Lonergan. 

Tune into this week's episode to discover our very polarised reactions to this movie, a heated debate about what constitutes a comedy and a truly bizarre story from Harry's childhood...

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!

Dreamgirls 2: Divas Reunited

Dreamgirls 2: Divas Reunited

February 22, 2021

Originating as a hit Broadway stage show, Dreamgirls tells the story of a popular sixties girl group who bear a striking - but entirely coincidental - resemblance to The Supremes. The film version starred Beyonce in the Diana Ross role, but it was former American Idol alumni Jennifer Hudson who stole the show, winning an Oscar in the process.

In this week's episode, we discuss our highlights - including Eddie Murphy channelling James Brown, RnB songs clearly written by middle-aged white people and a whole lot of vocal showboating.

We also brainstorm some drinking games, check in with our listeners and pitch sequel ideas to bring the movie back to the big screen. Because after all - you can't keep a good diva down!

Reviving Pleasantville

Reviving Pleasantville

February 1, 2021

Released in 1998, Pleasantville was a disappointment at the box office, but quickly developed a cult audience as stars Reese Witherspoon and Tobey Maguire became Hollywood A-listers. 

In this week's episode, we discuss our reactions to the film, including the groundbreaking special effects, some surprisingly raunchy gags and William H. Macy's heartbreaking quest for a home-cooked dinner.

Winter’s Tale 2: A Henchman’s Tale

Winter’s Tale 2: A Henchman’s Tale

December 21, 2020

When Martin Scorsese declares your movie's plot to be 'unfilmable', it's generally not a good sign. So it was with Winters Tale' - a well regarded 1983 novel that turned out to be a truly disastrous 2014 movie.

In this week's podcast, we break down one of the most bizarre big screen follies we've ever encountered - from the impenetrable back story, to Russell Crowe's ludicrous Irish accent to Colin Farrell's ever-changing hairstyle and a bewildering cameo from Will Smith. 

Along the way, we'll also brainstorm some drinking games, check in with out listeners and pitch some sequel concepts that should absolutely never be considered in real life. All in a week's work, in other words!

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!
