Big Trouble in Little China

This is Two Geeks, Two Beers and we’re talking to whoever’s listening out there… we’re a couple of reasonable guys, who’ve just experienced some very unreasonable things.

For this episode, Morgan is teaching Tom all about… Big Trouble in Little China!

We were both fans of this film growing up, and Morgan realised while researching the episode that it’s actually one of his all-time favourites to this day!

Starring Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrall and directed by John Carpenter, the 1986 film had everything: romance, comedy, martial arts, action and fantasy. It had a fantastic cast, including brilliant supporting roles Dennis Dun, James Hong and Victor Wong.

This podcast episode sees us go off on tangents about the 3 Ninjas franchise and the bonkers film Buckaroo Banzai. Plus, we look back on Big Trouble’s rival film The Golden Child starring Eddie Murphy.

Morgan also comes up with a new phrase about questionable film facts called ‘IMDBatable’. And he isn’t sure about Tom’s choice of Seann William Scott taking over from Kurt Russell in a potential sequel.

Everybody relax, we’re here…

Check out our previous movie episodes, including other martial arts adventures with Bruce LeeMortal Kombat and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
