    Aliens - "We're on an express elevator to hell - going down!"

    Aliens - "We're on an express elevator to hell - going down!"

    This week we're back with a guest host to discuss one of the most successful sequels ever! James Cameron writes, directs, but surprisingly he *doesn't* star in this coming-of-age tale of illegal immigration and corporate eugenics.


    Thanks to the strong female lead played by Sigourney Weaver, an excellent score and tight editing, this is also responsible for serious consideration of hard sci-fi on the awards circuit. We hope you enjoy the episode (and the record breaking plot synoposis!)

    Home Alone - "Other Than That I'm In Good Shape"

    Home Alone - "Other Than That I'm In Good Shape"

    Home Alone is one of the best John Hughes movies ever. Chris Columbus directs this excellent script by one of the best screenwriters the 1980s ever saw, featuring an up-and-coming Macaulay Culkin, Daniel Stern, and Joe f#$&'n Pesci!

    Its a Wonderful Life - "Every Time a Bell Rings an Angel Gets Its Wings!"

    Its a Wonderful Life - "Every Time a Bell Rings an Angel Gets Its Wings!"

    Jimmy Stewart stars in this perennial Christmas classic about the meaning of Christmas and the promise of a New Year


    Premiering in 1946, this film was not immediately successful at the box office - despite this, it's considered one of the all-time greatest films! This is by far the oldest movie we've covered on the podcast, so gather round the phonograph while we put on our kerchiefs!

    Elf - "He's an Angry Elf!"

    Elf - "He's an Angry Elf!"

    It's weird to think about this but without Elf, we might not have Iron Man. Thanks to Jon Favreau and an incredible Will Ferrell, this movie takes the traditional Christmas subject matter and successfully spins a new take on the classic legend!

    Scrooged - "Would Ya Please HOLD THE HAMMERING?!"

    Scrooged - "Would Ya Please HOLD THE HAMMERING?!"

    It seems like every year, we get another interpretation of Charles Dickens' classic Christmas tale. There are some which are book-to-screen adaptations, some which adapt plays, and then there are those like Scrooged which modernize and reframe the tale. However, none in this category have done it *quite* as well as this!

    Bill Murray is joined by Karen Allen in this excellent 1988 classic directed by Dick Donner - join us to find out if what we saw was just a hallucination brought on by alcohol!

    A Christmas Story - Oh Fudge!

    A Christmas Story - Oh Fudge!

    A Christmas Story is one of those special, truly cherished holiday traditions. The movie has to be seen at least once, whether or not by accident. Maybe you're in the waiting room of a hospital (because you were dared to stick your tongue to a metal pole in sub zero weather) or maybe you're passing the time at home (while cleaning your mouth out with soap).


    Either way, it's the best movie we could think of to kick off a round of holiday movie episodes this season!
