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!

Something Wild feat. The Contrarians

Something Wild feat. The Contrarians

May 9, 2021

He may have hit paydirt with his 90s classics Silence of the Lambs and Philadelphia, but Jonathan Demme's mid-80s road movie Something Wild remains one of the late director's most stylish and beloved works. 

On this week's podcast, Julio from The Contrarians stops by to share his thoughts on everything from Jeff Daniel's amazing dad dancing to a credits sequence for the ages, and much more...

The Frighteners 2: Female Trouble

The Frighteners 2: Female Trouble

October 19, 2020

As our Halloween mini-season continues, we welcome back one of our favourite returning guests, the fabulous Phil Better. Having introduced us to the wonders of Wolf back in 2018, he returns this week to discuss Peter Jackson's cult 1996 horror comedy The Frighteners. 

A crucial stepping stone between Jackson's early video nasties and his blockbusting Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Frighteners is a witty, if slightly over-stuffed, horror comedy starring Michael J Fox as a psychic con-man who becomes embroiled in a very real spate of paranormal murders. 

In this week's episode, we break down the plot and discuss special effects, sassy ghosts, the scenery-chewing mom from E.T. and much more, plus drinking games, listener submissions, sequel pitches and much more...

Lucy Goosey & The Jang Gang (feat. How to Survive Your Twenties)

March 22, 2020

Luc Besson's Lucy is a wild 90 minute rollercoaster that starts off as a standard issue crime thriller before taking a hard left turn into sci-fi, time travel and dinosaurs. 

Clearly, this was going to take a little bit of extra help to unpack, so on this week's podcast, we're joined by Joe & Jonah from How To Survive Your Twenties. Tune in to hear our thoughts on Scarlet Johansson's questionable moral compass, Morgan Freeman doing a TED Talk, bizarre phrasing choices and much more... plus sequel ideas, drinking games and all your usual faves...

Wonka: Chapter 2 (feat. Pete Allison)

February 28, 2020

Murder, fat shaming, nightmarish steamboat rides - terrifying childhood classics don't come much more traumatic than Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, the first major movie adaptation of Roald Dahl's bestselling 1964 novel.

BBC Radio DJ Pete Allison drops by this week to discuss the many, many ways in which this film delighted and scarred us in equal measure, before pitching in with some sequel ideas that conveniently ignore the fact that Charlie & The Great Glass Elevator and that Tim Burton reboot ever happened...
