    76 - The Great Gatsby

    76 - The Great Gatsby

    *a gentle whisper* Gatsby...

    It's the final episode of 'All That Baz!' (for now...) it's 2013's The Great Gatsby!

    Starring Leonardo DiCaprio in one of his final boyish charm roles, Tobey Maguire as pining Nick Carraway, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, Joel Edgerton as her hubby Tom and THE TALLEST WOMAN ALIVE Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker.

    Chuck on that green light and get borne back ceaselessly into the past with another Mixed Bag...

    75 - Moulin Rouge

    75 - Moulin Rouge

    There was a Baz, a very strange enchanted Baz…

    It’s our 75th episode and we’re celebrating with another one of our original picks when we first created this podcast, a film that truly represents the term All That Baz, Moulin Rouge!

    Made in 2001 with Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman, Moulin Rouge’s impact on culture was indelible. But is it any good?

    Twenty-one years later, Cass, Matt and James turn their eye towards the frenetic, cringe and zany world of the Moulin Rouge and try to determine if we’ll love this until our dying day, come what may, or is it more than we can stand? (ugh such a roxanne). There’s only one way to find out listeners…

    *Extremely stereotypical larrikin voice*


    We've got dingos, we've got shrimp on barbies and we called over Hugh and Nicole to do a bit of the ol' pretend!

    It's the first episode of All That Baz with his 2008 epic Australia. Available now on Disney+

    Set in northern Australia before World War II, an English aristocrat who inherits a sprawling ranch reluctantly pacts with a stock-man in order to protect her new property from a takeover plot. As the pair drive 2,000 head of cattle over unforgiving landscape, they experience the bombing of Darwin by Japanese forces firsthand. (Sourced from Letterboxd)

    73 - Breakfast at Tiffany’s

    73 - Breakfast at Tiffany’s

    What's that?! A film before the early 00s?!

    Here at Mixed Bag we realised we had some recent movie bias so we're going back in time to the swinging 60s, where the fashion was chic, the love was free (debatably) and Breakfast was at Tiffany's.

    It's also where white men felt a lot more comfortable donning makeup and performing yellowface.

    Can this smash hit starring Audrey Hepburn, adapted from a short story by Truman Capote overcome its elephant in the room? And will they ever find a name for Cat?

    Note: This was recorded in advance on the day of the Oscars, obviously many takes and actions have occurred since then, so treat this as our immediate reactions to the event that people can't and will not stop talking about.

    And congratulations to James and Cass who, when this airs, will now be married! 🎉

    72 - Green Book

    72 - Green Book

    🎉 Happy Oscars Day! 🎉

    In keeping with the theme of those little gold men, we're going back to 2018's Green Book and dissecting whether this Best Picture winner was deserving of the top spot and if not, how bad or mixed is it really?

    Just like this podcast, this movie was "inspired by a true friendship". Don't know the movie, he's the rundown (thanks to Letterboxd)

    Tony Lip, a bouncer in 1962, is hired to drive pianist Don Shirley on a tour through the Deep South in the days when African Americans, forced to find alternate accommodations and services due to segregation laws below the Mason-Dixon Line, relied on a guide called The Negro Motorist Green Book.

    Catch the team's reactions to the movie and their Oscar chat ahead of tonight's awards. So grab some KFC (perhaps for the first time?) and dive into the book.

    71 - The Spongebob Squarepants Movie - ft Catherine Gavigan-Binnie

    71 - The Spongebob Squarepants Movie - ft Catherine Gavigan-Binnie

    *French accent* Ahh the podcast. Where dedicated listeners form a parasocial relationship to disembodied voices who chat in week in, week out.

    But this is no ordinary week, this episode we're joined by Catherine Gavigan-Binnie to chat about the movie adaptation of The Spongebob Squarepants Movie! 

    Made in 2004 and marking the end of series creator Stephen Hillenburg's run with Spongebob, the Spongebob series holds a soft spot for many, but does the sponge's first foray into films represent a series high or a bikini bottom? Don't miss Catherine's wonderful chat with Cass, Matt and James as they unpack beloved childhood TV and whether the rubber hits the road in this unconventional road movie.

A very good podcast

Wow! Amazing! This is my new favourite podcast! I love everything about it, apart from some of Matt’s bits, I could do without them, but everything else is perfect! Five stars.
