In the episode, we discuss the film’s frankly amazing cast, Ben Affleck’s hilarious disparaging DVD commentary, and we hear Morgan’s Donald Trump impression. What more could you want?
We recorded this episode before the whole coronavirus pandemic became a thing, but we reckon it’s strangely apt to be discussing something so… end of the world-y. So, at least whatever’s happening in your life right now, at least the fate of the world isn’t in the hands of Bruce Willis and his oil drilling pals.
Podcasts can be a great comfort or distraction in times like these, so while we’re sure everyone has bigger concerns, we hope we can provide some small feeling of comfort and a bit of a giggle.
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.
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.
Merry Christmas! For this year’s festive special, we’re looking back at some of the most memorable adaptations of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
Tom and Morgan pick three Scrooges each, to decide which one is the very best (not including Scrooge McDuck or efforts by Henry Winkler or Kelsey Grammer, sorry boys).
The episode also features an exclusive interview with Muppet Christmas Carol star Meredith Braun, where Tom chatted with her about the film’s fan favourite song ‘When Love is Gone’ and how great Michael Caine was as Scrooge.
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.
Morgan takes Tom through the entire sprawling Planet of the Apes movie series, with Tom being utterly confused over how many films were made in such a short space of time – covering all the movies and TV series.
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!
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.
Beer choice this time: German ale Franziskaner Weissbier in tribute of Hans and Simon Gruber.
