But I’m a Cheerleader!

But I’m a Cheerleader!

July 12, 2021

One of the best LGBTQIA+ movies of its era, But I'm A Cheerleader was a little too ahead of its time to get much box office mileage in 1999, but its cult favourite status has endured thanks to a dedicated fanbase and the adult success of many of its young stars.

On this week's podcast, we're joined by our favourite recurring guest Louise (and her very loud dog in the background - apologies!) to discuss subverting stereotypes, eye-watering colour schemes, RuPaul's strong thigh game and much more!

Footloose 2: Disco Inferno

July 5, 2021

Everybody cut loose! On this week's episode we're looking back on the oddly dark 80s dance classic that is... Footloose!

Parasite 2: Reunification

Parasite 2: Reunification

May 3, 2021

As we wind down on another faintly underwhelming Oscar season, we thought it'd be nice to look back on the clear highlight of last year's batch - surprise Best Picture winner and all-round word of mouth sensation Parasite. 

On this week's podcast, we discuss not-so-subtle symbolism, the joy of seeing a plan come together, interior design goals and much more! We also break down the plot of the movie, brainstorm some drinking games, check in with our listeners and pitch some sequel ideas to bring this movie back to the big screen...

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...
