Episode 60: Is It a Christmas Movie?

For the 2019 Two Geeks Christmas special, Tom and Morgan have chosen six classic movies that are often the subject of furious debate at this time of year.

‘Is ________ actually a Christmas movie?’

The movies we debate are:

  • Die Hard
  • Lethal Weapon
  • Groundhog Day
  • Gremlins
  • On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
  • It’s a Wonderful Life

In the episode, Tom loses an argument with himself and Morgan unleashes his best James Stewart impression yet. You’re in for a serious Christmas treat.

Episode 58: Highlander

This time, Morgan teaches noob Tom about the entire history of the Highlander franchise, from its classic Queen-soundtracked first movie, to its dreadful sequel, and its many spinoffs and follow-ups.

Hear Tom get more exasperated with each new iteration, how he forgot Morgan’s birthday and why Colin isn’t an action hero name. Sorry, Colin.

There’s also an interview clip from when Morgan met Christopher Lambert, and a special competition where YOU could win an awesome prize!

Beer choice: Fyne Ales Highlander

Episode 55: Legend

Following on from our Labyrinth/Dark Crystal episode, Tom completes his trio of childhood ’80s fantasy movies by taking Morgan through the history of Ridley Scott’s 1985 epic Legend starring Tom Cruise and Tim Curry.

We explore the insane techniques used to make the movie, Tim Curry’s iconic performance, TWO cracking soundtracks and why it didn’t exactly stand the test of time.

Note: This episode was recorded before the sad passing of Blade Runner star Rutger Hauer.

Episode 50: Tom vs Morgan (Donnie Darko vs Temple of Doom)

For our 50th episode, we’re doing something a little different.

We picked a classic cult icon each that one of us loves but the one hates, in the hopes of convincing them they’re wrong. Considering we usually agree on all things geek, it was a hard task just finding two things in the first place.

In the end, we plumped for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (which Tom hates) and Donnie Darko (which Morgan hates). But… WHO. WILL. WIN?

What’s worse? Willie Scott screaming for two hours or pretentious timey-wimey nonsense?

Hear our pitches as to why the other one is wrong, and find out who came out victorious.

Episode 49: Ranking the Santas

Ho, ho, ho!

For this year’s Christmas special, we’re ranking the greatest screen Saint Nicks of all time.

Our five are: Mel Smith (Father Christmas), Edmund Gwynne (Miracle on 34th Street), Richard Attenborough (Miracle on 34th Street), Tim Allen (The Santa Clause), and David Huddleston (Santa Claus: The Movie). But which order will we pick them?

Plus, plenty of other honourable mentions, and a brief history of Santa as we know him. See, it’s an educational show too!

Merry Christmas!

Episode 47: Freaky Film Franchises 2

Just like episode 5 way back when, we’ve taken two film franchises each and dissected just how bonkers they have got (and are still going to this day!).

Morgan teaches Tom all about The Marine and Universal Soldier franchises, while Tom takes Morgan through Air Bud and Puppet Master.

Try and keep up, things are about to get thoroughly confusing (and merry).

Episode 46: Mission Impossible

Finger on the pulse yet again, a mere month and a bit since Fallout is released, we’re back with a brand new episode.

Morgan takes Tom through a history of the M:I franchise, from its TV series, to the movies and beyond.

We discuss at length how underrated Tom Cruise is, why we love a Limp Bizkit soundtrack and what Bond could learn from Ethan Hunt.
