The Full Monty 2: Dream Bigger

The Full Monty 2: Dream Bigger

October 11, 2021

A classic British underdog story, The Full Monty was shot for less than $3 million, almost went straight to video and ultimately grossed over $200 million, earned a Best Picture nomination and spawned one of the most successful stage shows of the 20th century...

Tune in as we discuss gnome wars, emergency lens flare and a truly iconic soundtrack while pitching sequels for this iconic 90s Britcom.

Hugo 2: Changing Faces

Hugo 2: Changing Faces

August 8, 2021

If every great director gets at least one commercially doomed vanity project, 2011's Hugo was Martin Scorcese's. A 2 hour plus love letter to classic cinema shot in luxurious 3D, the movie struggled to find a commercial audience on release, but it racked up 11 Oscar nominations and ultimately won five. 

On this week's episode, we discuss the movie magic on display, the 3D effects we wish we could have seen in the cinemas, the post Love Guru redemption of Ben Kingsley and much more, plus drinking games, listener submissions and sequel pitches!

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!
