    Ep 20: Krampus

    Ep 20: Krampus

    It's Christmas Day so we're talking about the 2015 movie Krampus. When a family loses the Christmas spirit it unleashes an evil version of Santa with hooves and dental problems and far more vore than any of us remembered. We discuss the thematic impact of code switiching, the power of character arcs for the ones who survive into the second act of a film, and the true meaning of family.

    Ep 19: The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus

    Ep 19: The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus

    With the winter deep upon us it's time to visit a lesser known Rankin/Bass film about the Life and Adventures of Santa Claus, as well as take some time to think about Santa himself. We talk about whether Santa even did anything in this film, the surprise monster Lu didn't remember from the film, and how old we were when we figured out the Santa myth. Then Hayden finally digs down to explain why the term "daddy" makes him uncomfortable.

    Ep 18: The Nightmare Before Christmas

    We're in the thick of holiday season now so this week we're talking about The Nightmare Before Christmas. Join our look back at this Halloween/Christmas story about a skeleton king who isn't satisfied with his life and so tries to take over a new holiday. We talk about Hot Topic romances, what happens when a movie doesn't know its own metaphor, and how Jack Skeleington is really just actual Tim Burton.

    Ep 17: The Addams Family Values

    Ep 17: The Addams Family Values

    It's just past Thanksgiving so it's time to celebrate with The Addams Family Values. We explore this absolutly fantastic movie with a deep dive into the radical love and honesty of the Addams's's's's's, the reason why the Addams embrace the villain of this film, and the many perils of summer camp.  We also discuss the famous Thanksgiving scene, why it's important, and where it may not hold up, if you want to skip past this rather tough discussion you can jump to 1:03:00, or if you're interested in some discussion of Thanksgiving from an actual Native perspective check out these articles: https://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-orange-thanksgiving-history-20171123-story.html, https://truthout.org/articles/the-future-is-indigenous-decolonizing-thanksgiving/.

    Ep 16: Alien

    Ep 16: Alien

    It's been a few weeks but we are back and better than ever with Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror classic Alien. We talk about the real monster of this movie, the horny creature and set design of H. R. Gieger, and good self destruct button design. Thanks to @Pug50 on Twitter for suggesting this episode.

    Ep 15: Dracula

    Ep 15: Dracula

    We picked a wild one for this week. After some talk on coffee and tabletop games we take a look at Bram Stoker's 1897 novel about the most famous of vampires and it might be the most queer thing we've seen yet! We break down whether Mina Harker is a good feminist character, why Bram Stoker might have been better as a screenwriter, the most homoerotic scene in this novel, and so much more.
