Sunset Blvd 2: The Grand Delusion

August 1, 2021

After watching one of the actual worst films of all time last week, we decided to class up the joint this week with one of the greats! Sunset Blvd starring Gloria Swanson and William Holden is one of the most quotable, iconic movies of all time - and our very first black and white!

Tune in to find out how we fared - and for our thoughts on Simian lovers, old Hollywood glamour, the curse of typecasting and much more - plus drinking games, listener reactions and of course, sequel pitches. Don't call it a comeback!

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!

June 7, 2021

Of all the attempts to adapt classic literature into modern cinema of the 00s, Ten Things I Hate About You is arguably the most successful.

Romy & Michele Go To Vegas

May 30, 2021

At the height of the Friends phenomena, virtually all of the principal cast set out to establish their movie careers outside the show. Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox may have scored bigger hits at the time, but none landed a cult comedy quite as beloved as Romy & Michele's High School Reunion.

In this week's podcast. we discuss 90s fashion, Mira Sorvino's Oscar-worthy voice work, a scene-stealing Janeane Garofalo and much more as we pitch sequels for one of the most delightful - and quotable movies of the era!
