Tom takes Morgan through the mind of Jim Henson and two of his greatest fantasy movies.
Tom takes Morgan back to the 1980s – when fantasy movies were everywhere and full of animatronics and puppets instead of CGI and green screens.
This episode delves into the brilliant mind of the late, great Jim Henson, and two of his non-Muppet movies: The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. Movies that were not huge successes at the time, but have grown to become cult favourites.
We discuss everything from David Bowie’s bulge, scary bird things and whether pretending you were the baby in Labyrinth wins you any friends at uni.
Ho ho horror. Tackling the Christmas vs Halloween genre, from Silent Night Deadly Night to Jack Frost.
Ho ho HORROR. As we missed the deadline for our own Halloween special, we’ve combined it with Christmas for a collection of the best and worst of a very particular kind of horror film: the Christmas horror.
Morgan and Tom teach each other about: Silent Night Deadly Night, Jack Frost, Black Christmas and Treevenge – and discover that the Christmas horror genre is anything but festive. Garbage Day!
Our third mini episode comes after we’ve seen the latest MCU blockbuster – Captain America: Civil War. We bang on about how we hate Bucky, why we love Spider-Man and Black Panther and how spoiled we all our nowadays.
Ahead of our next full episode about Sliders – here’s our quick take on the current Marvel Cinematic Universe situation: Doctor Strange trailer (and whether Benedict Cumberbatch can be arsed), Captain America: Civil War preview (why does everyone care about bloody Bucky) and Spider-Man: Homecoming (why it could be awesome).
NOTE: This episode was recorded before certain MCU spoilers were released.
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.
