    All Killer No Filler / Monster + Memories of Murder

    All Killer No Filler / Monster + Memories of Murder

    This week we take a gloomy turn and look at one of the more morose and dark topic's we've tackled in while... Serial Killer films! And we went and chose two which were inspired by real events.

    First up is Lauren's choice - Patty 'Wonder Woman' Jenkins' debut, Monster, which earned Charlize Theron a trip the podium at the 2004 Academy Awards. Then we take a jump across the globe to South Korea as Jordan's choice is the highly acclaimed Memories of Murder, the second film from the current golden-boy director Bong Joon-Ho.

    Take me to your leader / Planet 51 + Under the Skin

    As promised last week we're here with another episode of cinematic bliss. Two episodes in two weeks, we said we'd be back with regular content and here we are. In this episode we thought we look to the stars and tackle the popular sci-fi trope... the Alien invasion movie.

    First up is Lauren's choice, the very rarely discussed kids animated film, Planet 51. Then it's time for Jordan to take you to inner-city Glasgow to watch Scarlett Johansson prey on some unsuspecting men in Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin.

    Fifty Years Old / Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory + Klute

    We've finally reached 50 episodes and here at HFHM HQ we thought that was worthy of celebration. It's been a tough last 12 months but we are making a promise to you lovely listeners that we'll be loading more consistent content from now on.

    Our show this week was a simple on to come up with... given that we're 50 episodes old, we decided to watch some films that turn 50 this year.

    First up is Lauren's choice with the childhood staple Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, before Jordan takes us into the seedy underbelly of New York City, with Alan J. Pakula's stylistic noir, Klute.

    What the hell just happened? / The Sixth Sense + The Skin I Live In

    What the hell just happened? / The Sixth Sense + The Skin I Live In

    When a plot twist surprises and audience it can totally transform a movie, so we thought it would be interesting to take a look at a couple of films that really shocked their viewers with their twists.

    First up is Lauren's choice, as we watch the 1999 global phenomenon The Sixth Sense, before delving into the disturbed mind of Spanish master filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar with his 2011 release, The Skin I Live In.

    Time for a fresh start / The First Wives Club + Billy Liar

    We're back after another unplanned hiatus, thank the gods! And what better way to come back than talking about a couple of movies that have fresh starts in common.

    First up is Lauren's choice - the 1996 comedy starring Bette Middle, Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn, The First Wives Club. Then we take a trip back in time with a slice of British New Wave cinema as Jordan chooses the John Schlesinger classic, Billy Liar.

    Show me your Sartorial Delights / The Dressmaker + Phantom Thread

    Creating hobbies, or falling back into old ones, has kept many a person sane during this car crash of a year. Sewing has a been a big one at HFHM HQ so we thought we'd watch a few that showcased sartorial talents.

    First up is Lauren's pick, the Australian period drama The Dressmaker, directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse. Then it's time for Jordan's choice, the 2017 film (with the rumoured final performance from Daniel Day Lewis) Phantom Thread, directed by the great Paul Thomas Anderson.
