Thelma & Louise 2: Flying Thunderbird

April 12, 2021

Everyone knows Thelma and Louise died when they drove their car over the edge of the Grand Canyon. What this podcast presupposes is... maybe they didn’t?

Join us as we react to the definitive female buddy movie of the 90s from director Ridley Scott, including our thoughts on dangerous driving, curiously empty highways, Brad Pitt's Best Supporting Abs and much more!

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...

The Bodyguard 2:The Shoddyguard

The Bodyguard 2:The Shoddyguard

March 8, 2021

Of all the singers who branched out into acting in the 90s, few nailed the cross-promotional opportunities as successfully as Whitney Houston. Not only was The Bodyguard an enormous box office hit, it also spawned the defining song of her career in I Will Always Love You.

On this week's podcast, we react to the original film and give our thoughts on reed herrings, clunky cameos, the inexplicable appeal of Kevin Costner and much more - plus drinking games, listener submissions and, of course, sequel pitches!

Dreamgirls 2: Divas Reunited

Dreamgirls 2: Divas Reunited

February 22, 2021

Originating as a hit Broadway stage show, Dreamgirls tells the story of a popular sixties girl group who bear a striking - but entirely coincidental - resemblance to The Supremes. The film version starred Beyonce in the Diana Ross role, but it was former American Idol alumni Jennifer Hudson who stole the show, winning an Oscar in the process.

In this week's episode, we discuss our highlights - including Eddie Murphy channelling James Brown, RnB songs clearly written by middle-aged white people and a whole lot of vocal showboating.

We also brainstorm some drinking games, check in with our listeners and pitch sequel ideas to bring the movie back to the big screen. Because after all - you can't keep a good diva down!

Reviving Pleasantville

Reviving Pleasantville

February 1, 2021

Released in 1998, Pleasantville was a disappointment at the box office, but quickly developed a cult audience as stars Reese Witherspoon and Tobey Maguire became Hollywood A-listers. 

In this week's episode, we discuss our reactions to the film, including the groundbreaking special effects, some surprisingly raunchy gags and William H. Macy's heartbreaking quest for a home-cooked dinner.

As Good As It Gets 2: Melvin & Maude

November 23, 2020

Back in 1997, Titanic broke records, L.A. Confidential was the critics choice and Good Will Hunting was the feel-good underdog success story - but it was As Good As It Gets that snuck past them all to take home both of the lead acting Oscars at the following year's ceremony. 

In this week's podcast, we discuss the Academy's love of a middlebrow love story, the ineffable allure of Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt's Hollywood moment and much more, as we break down the film and pitch some sequels!

Good Will Hunting 2: Bad Will Fighting

Good Will Hunting 2: Bad Will Fighting

November 16, 2020

It's the great Hollywood fairytale. Two plucky friends from Boston arrived in the big city with a self-penned screenplay and a dream. A few short years later, Good Will Hunting has become an Oscar-winning sensation and Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are on a fast-track to the Hollywood A-list.

On this week's podcast, we take a closer look at this much-loved movie and debate whether or not it really holds up. Along the way we discuss hot topics including Hollywood psychology, overly enthusiastic maths teachers, how Robin Williams' ad-libs basically saved this movie and more. As always, we also throw in our regular round of drinking games, listener reactions and sequel pitches for your enjoyment.
