Johnny takes centre stage as film programmer for this Halloween edition of the podcast, opting for a beloved classic neither host has seen over a horror movie. The witching hour is upon us all.
Bloody Andrew makes Johnny bloody watch a movie he knows bloody nothing about, and Johnny finishes his London Film Festival report in a bloody episode about bloody a lot of bloody things, right.
The result of our listener competition, Andrew and Johnny sit down with acclaimed French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet to watch his 1991 comedy horror. The group discover why Andrew handles the curation process.
Johnny takes the reigns at the end of Music Month with one of his recent favourites, IN 3D!!!! Andrew learns things about Katy Perry, like she is a singer, and also she is a human being, and Johnny tries not to cry.
The most musical movie yet, Johnny longs for something with actual talking heads, and definitely not a concert film, whilst Andrew ignites the joy and love of David Byrne all over. This is a once in a lifetime episode.
Andrew and Johnny head to Altamont for an explosion of hippies, peace, love and Hell’s Angels. Johnny isn’t big on The Stones, and Andrew mainly spends his time wanting more violence. It’s a sadistic week all over.
Music Month begins with a look back at, erm, no, a look to the past, yeah, of Bob Dylan and his time in England. Bob comes to the studio to explain himself and his hatred of journalists, and we all wish we could watch Donovan instead.
The internet’s favourite meme becomes an episode, where Johnny contemplates how a human/insect romance could sustain and Andrew pitches various spin-offs, including Tree Movie with Chris Pine and… Willow Smith.
Johnny freaks out about button eyes, whilst Andrew wonders if there’s anything he’d want that’d be worth sewing his own shut. PG horror films and Laika’s output also get thrown in the mix over the course of the show. And anticipation for episode 100.
Brace yourselves because Alec Baldwin pops back into the studio to talk about Tim Burton’s classic, whilst Andrew regails us of the time he pissed off the sweetest person in the world, Catherine O’Hara. Say her name three times, I dare ya.
We close out the Wes Anderthon with a double-header, and discuss spiritual journies, Wally Wolodarsky as a person and Owen Wilson’s… thing. All as Johnny watches the England Sweden match in the hopes that this becomes an historic document.
Happy Fourth Of July (We’re All Gonna Die (Sufjan Stevens)), we take a break from Wes Anderson to focus on his muse Bill Murray, and a comedy classic full of fireworks and good ol’ American slobs V snobs hijinks. Johnny tries to wrap his mind around the concept of Rodney Dangerfield and Andrew pitches a gender-swap remake once more. TIME’S UP!
God help Andrew as Johnny finds a way to explain what a horcrux is, whilst the two discuss Jeff Goldblum’s sex appeal and living on a boat. All whilst kind-of watching The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature!
