Pixar’s Up 2 The Stars

January 10, 2020

As long-time listeners may know, we've established a little tradition here at Beyond The Box Set, in which we ease our way into a new year with an animated classic. So grab the Kleenex and join us for an emotional look back at Pixar's heart-warming Up...

In this week's podcast, we discuss Pixar's most tragic moments, the potentially age-defying qualities of Paradise Falls, Harry's surprising hidden passion for monkey bars and much more. All that, plus the usual drinking games, listener submissions and of course our sequel ideas. Whether you're a first-timer or a long-time listener, thanks for joining us on our 2020 adventure by tuning in!

Every week, we take a look back at a classic standalone movie and compete to pitch ridiculous sequel, prequel or spin-off ideas to bring them back onto the big screen. We're about to embark on our fourth year of this crazy ride, and we're just getting started...

Christmas With The Kranks 2: Ripping off The Kranks

Christmas With The Kranks 2: Ripping off The Kranks

December 27, 2019

For our final festive selection of 2019, our Patreon supporters have inflicted a real turkey on us. Released in 2004, Christmas With The Kranks is a dire yuletide comedy in which wealthy boomers Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis battle an insane horde of Santa obsessives while attempting to skip out on the Holiday season for a year. If that sounds like a fun premise, trust us, we're over-selling it...

Tune into this week's podcast to hear our thoughts on feline cruelty, out-of-place cancer sub-plots and a level of unexamined privilige and flagrant over-spending that makes The Holiday look like a Ken Loach movie...

As always, we've also got drinking games, listener submissions and our own sequel ideas to give this cinematic lump of coal some kind of redemptive quality. The perfect antidote to Festive fatigue!

The Nightmare Before Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Easter…

The Nightmare Before Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Easter…

December 12, 2019

What's this? What's this?!

Why, it's the latest festive episode of Beyond The Box Set, in which we're pitching sequels for Disney's ghoulish stop-motion classic The Nightmare Before Christmas. Released in 1993, the movie tells the story of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween-town who becomes disillusioned with his annual duties and decides to take a crack at Christmas instead. 

Tune into this episode to hear our thoughts on the twisted mind of Tim Burton, the joy of terrorising small children, the disturbing implications of Thanksgiving-town, plus drinking games, listener submissions and much more...

The Holiday 2: Daddy Issues

The Holiday 2: Daddy Issues

December 6, 2019

Like a warm plate of Christmas Fettuccine, The Holiday may not be the most nutritious festive treat on the market, but damn if it doesn't hit the spot, despite our best efforts at maintaining our cynicism...

Starring Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Jack Black, Nancy Meyers' Atlantic-straddling hit exists in that strange Rom-Com fantasy world where money is no object, every house is either a beautifully isolated British cottage or a lavish L.A. mansion decorated with actual chandeliers and flying across the world at the drop of a hat requires no forward planning or adjustment of work/social schedules. 

In other words, it should be completely insufferable, but by some Christmas miracle we both found ourselves irresistibly drawn in. Tune into this week's podcast to hear our thoughts on dodgy British geography, the eerie physical perfection of Jude Law, knitwear porn and much more.

Bridesmaids 2: Maid of Honor

Bridesmaids 2: Maid of Honor

November 29, 2019

In a strange quirk of podcast timing, Harry found himself forced to watch three romantic comedies in as many days the week we recorded this episode. Will this have any bearing on his reaction to Bridesmaids, the Oscar-nominated 2011 smash from Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo? 

Tune into this week's edition of Beyond The Box Set to hear our thoughts on rom-com fatigue, unsupportive friends, swearing at teenagers, the comedy powerhouse that is Melissa McCarthy and much more, plus drinking games, sequel pitches and all the other regular features. You know the drill.

Fargo 2: Murder in Minnesota

Fargo 2: Murder in Minnesota

November 15, 2019

With winter rapidly drawing in, a chilly thriller set in the frozen climes of the American Midwest seemed like an appropriate choice for this week's episode. Released in 1996, Fargo is one of the Coen Brothers' most beloved movies, and one of the most acclaimed and influential pictures of its time. 

On this week's episode, we discuss breaking our only rule - yes, we're aware of the TV show - iconic accent work, Gunderson relationship goals, the endless joy of watching Steve Buscemi take physical and verbal abuse, and much more...

We also brainstorm some Fargo drinking games and pitch some sequel ideas to find out what the survivors of the original film might be up to 25 years later. Is it worth a listen? Yer darn tootin'!

Fight Club 2: Rom Com Collective

Fight Club 2: Rom Com Collective

November 8, 2019

A controversial cult hit with the most famous first rule in cinema history, David Fincher's Fight Club is one of the defining movies of its era. But does this hyper-violent satire of 90s masculinity have more to offer than a memorable twist in the cold light of 2019?

In this week's podcast, we discuss the trouble with Fight Club's very straight, very white, very male point of view, the bullshit philosophies of Tyler Durden, Helena Bonham Carter's fabulous smoking aesthetic and much more, before pitching our drinking games and fantasy sequel concepts...

Let The Right One In: Curse of the Killer Kitties (feat. The Contrarians)

Let The Right One In: Curse of the Killer Kitties (feat. The Contrarians)

November 1, 2019

Our Vampire season concludes with a chilly Nordic noir about a young Swedish boy who falls in love with a child vampire. Julio from The Contrarians Podcast joins us to talk Stockholm syndrome, incompetent serial killers, CGI cat attacks and more as we pitch sequels for Let The Right One In

Released in 2008, Let The Right One In was directed by Tomas Alfredson and adapted from the bestselling novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist. It was also remade for American audiences in 2010 as Let Me In, starring Chloë Grace Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Both versions are very good, but the prospect of forcing Harry to sit through two hours of Swedish was just too tempting. Tune in to find out how he fared...

Vampire’s Kiss 2: Uncaged

Vampire’s Kiss 2: Uncaged

October 25, 2019

Nicholas Cage suffers delusions of Vampirism in the insane dark 80s comedy Vampire's Kiss. Now most famous for birthing that meme, the entire movie is a campy, unhinged delight that truly has to be seen to be believed. And yet... we were left feeling that maybe it's actually legitimately good? 

Check out our full thoughts on the Cage phenomena, incompetent psychiatrists, hostile work environments and much much more in this week's episode...

Each week on Beyond The Box Set, we take a classic movie from the past and boldly attempt to pitch sequels, prequels and spin-offs to bring them back to the big screen. From Titanic to The Shawshank Redemption, Mars Attacks to Maximum Overdrive, there's nothing we won't take a creative crack at...
