The Love Guru Must Die

The Love Guru Must Die

July 26, 2021

On this week's episode, we cover by far one of the worst songs we've ever inflicted upon ourselves in five years of podcasting... Mike Myers' notorious 2008 flop The Love Guru.

Tune in to hear our thoughts on cringeworthy cameos, respected actors and comedians slumming it for money, rehashed Austin Powers jokes and much more as we try to get to the bottom of this truly abysmal cosmic failure.

Parasite 2: Reunification

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...

Midsommar Murders

Midsommar Murders

September 28, 2020

Following the breakout success of Hereditary, writer-director Ari Aster proved he was no one-hit wonder with the deliciously weird Midsommar. By turns haunting and darkly hilarious, the film depicts possibly the most toxic breakup ever committed to screen, as Florence Pugh and Jack Raynor take an ill-fated trip to a remote Swedish commune where the sun never sets. 

Tune into this week's episode to hear our thoughts on villainous Swedes, mysterious bears, possible gay subtext and much more as we dive into this twisted modern classic. We've also got all of our usual features, including drinking games, listener submissions and our own fantasy sequel pitches.

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

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...

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...
