    W-W-W... We'll Be Back

    Alien 3

    Alien 3

    Despite debuting a director now considered one of the greatest of all time, everything went wrong on Alien 3. Brace for impact cause we got whippets dressed up in alien suits (look it up... worth it), sub-bass that made audiences leave the theater to use the toilet and bald caps painstakingly constructed (literally) one hair sprout at a time.

    Twilight

    It's easy to bash Twilight, with its glittering, brooding and mouth-breathing; but love it or hate it, the highly anticipated Twilight movie crushed at the box office. We explore the numerous obstacles that stood in the way of director Catherine Hardwicke and why the remaining films in this young adult, female-driven franchise were all directed by men.

Review

I really enjoy your podcast, very informative and fun. I have recommended to several people. How about a review on anyone of the road warrior movies or maximum overdrive.

Great insider podcast

Lizzie and Chris do a great job of keeping this show fun and light while also digging into the true and interesting stories of all the movies you know and may or may not love. I have learned a lot about movies I thought I already knew a lot about and gained interest in movies I never thought much about.

Give it a listen and then go watch the movies. I am planning on watching Ishtar this week!
