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 39: Back to the Future

Great Scott and all that. In this episode, Tom explains to Morgan just why BTTF is his favourite movie series of all time. They discuss and dissect all three movies, the cartoon series, games and more.

We find out why you can’t just copy someone’s face, how the plot of the second movie is so complicated that Tom can’t speak, and just how many Ted Danson puns we can fit into a minute.

Episode 35: Flash Gordon

OK, we may have had an issue with our latest episode (ie, Tom forgot to record it properly), so that lost episode will be re-recorded in a few months time…

BUT, instead, here’s a brand new episode entirely, all about the history of one of America’s most beloved comic book characters, and its 1980 movie, Flash Gordon!

Tom and Morgan chat about the underrated hero that is Buster Crabbe, the best bits of Queen’s Flash soundtrack and why Ming the Merciless’ name is so perfect.

Morgan and Tom explain just why Die Hard is the best action movie of all time, while also falling out at ranking the films, why Jai Courtney almost single-handedly ruined the series, and the many clones from Cliffhanger to Executive Decision.
