340 Willow (I Whip My Wand Back and Forth)
On today’s episode, we’re revisiting an epic classic that excelled at fantasy long before a certain Jewelry-centered tale was put to screen, Ron Howard’s 1988 classic Willow.
Join us as we discuss Warwick Davis’ fantastic first lead role, Val Kilmer hamming it up as the hilarious and badass Madmartigan, Billy Barty’s presence in our childhood through this and Gwildore, and the epic conclusion that might be better Wizard-Fu than the Wizard-Fu in Lord of the Rings.
Ignore the bird and follow the river to our discussion and don’t forget to watch the new Willow series on that one streaming service with all the stuff.
339 Back To The Future (Or: How I Learned to Stop Bullying and Love My Mom)
On today’s episode of The PCP your hosts break down the untouchable 1984 movie, Back To The Future.
Another perfect movie, this forever classic flick is the result of a rare combination of story/script/actors and style that effortlessly weave excitement and tension with comedy and romance. Rounded out and topped off by an impeccable soundtrack and theme that Silvestri has perhaps equaled since but never topped.
Join us as we discuss MJF and his dual work on this and Family Ties after replacing an actor well into shooting, Crispin’s genius, Marty rewriting history and the racial implications involved, our top 5 favorite time-travel movies, and much more!

Listen in as we discuss the detour in Dumbledore's plan to destroy Voldemort with the occurence of The Triwizard Championship & how Harry Potter gets drawn into the contest surrounded by escaped and dangerous death eaters, a friend who has turned his back on him, nightmares, dragons, and hormones. It all culminates in the death of an innocent student and the return of Voldemort in all his power and glory. We also discuss our favorite character in all of Cinema, the director's lack of passion for Potter, and the most important flub Voldemort ever made. Eternal glory awaits the victor.. But so might death.
