In this bumper episode, our brave boys power through 8 (eight) glimpses through the portal in an attempt to close out this decade of Tooniversal research, knowing all too well that one documentary about life in 1947 is gonna change everything.
This week’s film is the incredibly disturbing ? don’t watch it if your constitution is in any way delicate; it will stay with you ? Ben Wheatley film KILL LIST. We talk about how this film takes a while to get going, but when it does ? oh boy! Also on the agenda today: social realism, Lovecraftian […]
Amongst the advent of the Hare/Tortoise feud, another assassination attempt, and a questionable account of Bugs’ adolescence, we discover that Austro-Hungarian actor Peter Lorre took a terrible secret to his grave.

This week our focus shifts to Luhrmann’s sweeping Antipodean magnum opus, AUSTRALIA. We sort of already know what there is to be said about this film, so we spend a lot of time talking about the movie’s politics, its visuals, and how it tries to do many different things, but doesn’t always succeed ? and […]
