#124 | The Further Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
Sharpen your nails and dust off your wittiest one-liners! This week, we're heading off on the road trip of a lifetime with a look back at The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert!  An outrageously camp Australian comedy shot on a minimal bu…
#123 | The Day After Tomorrow 2: The Decade After Tomorrow
Our disaster movie season wouldn't be complete without a look back at Roland Emmerich's The Day After Tomorrow. Will this once-silly climate change thriller now read as a sobering warning from history in the cold light of 2019? Well... not exactly.…
#122 | Left Behind 2: Highway To Hell (feat. Chris Scott)
For the second time this month, our disaster movie season lands on the bizarre latter-day career choices of Nicholas Cage. Based on a bestselling Christian book series, 2014's Left Behind is a low-budget, shoddily made train wreck that not even Jes…
#121 | Deep Impact 2: Deeper Underground
A more thoughtful, character-driven take on the disaster movie genre that still finds room for exploding cars and city-crushing tidal waves, Deep Impact is easily the most respectable entry into our current mini-season... it even passes the Bechdel…
#120 | Knowing 2: All Knowing
Somehow, Beyond the Box Set has managed to exist for two whole years without us ever diving into the filmography of the iconic human meme machine that is Nicholas Cage. Fortunately our current disaster movie mini-season offers plentiful opportuniti…
#119 | Geostorm 2: Dutch Oven
Gerard Butler and his distractingly thick neck race to save the world from ecological disaster in Geostorm, an instant ironic classic from the screenwriting team behind Independence Day. Featuring bad science, clunky dialogue and plot holes the siz…
#118 | Tropic Thunder 2: Welcome Back To The Jungle
Featuring ludicrously OTT gore, Ben Stiller going full r-word and Robert Downey Jr. improbably turning a black face performance into Oscar gold, Tropic Thunder is a Hollywood satire that made us laugh and squirm in equal measure. Poking fun at the …
#117 | Boogie Nights 2: Dirk Diggler's Hole-istic Dicktective Agency
Starring Mark Wahlberg as Dirk Diggler, the well-endowed Golden Child of the late 70s porn industry, Boogie Nights established Paul Thomas Anderson as a major directorial talent, and featured breakthrough performances for megastars including Julian…
#116 | Clueless 2: High School Reunion
Deceptively smart and, like, totally quotable, Amy Heckerling's Clueless redefined the High School comedy genre in the mid 90s, paving the way for the likes of Mean Girls and Easy A. In this week's episode, returning guest Louise Ball joins us this…
#115 |  The Devil Wears Prada 2: Revenge Wears Prada
As an icy fashion queen who definitely isn't Anna Wintour, Meryl Streep delivers one of the most iconic performances of her career in The Devil Wears Prada. But could she ever be convinced to revisit the role? Adapted from the bestselling novel by …
#114 | Air Force One: Cruise Control
Be honest, who wouldn't vote for Harrison Ford as President? On the basis of Air Force One, his policies might be a little... problematic, but he's reliably charming, calm under pressure and he can really nail a trailer line. Real presidents have b…
#113 | Mars Attacks 2: Cat Women From Venus!
After our Dangerous Liaisons disaster last week, we clearly needed a change of pace to keep this Glenn Close mini-series on the rails. Enter Mars Attacks! - Tim Burton's campy love letter to 50s B-movies, and a very different role for our current f…
#112 | Dangerous Liaisons: Children of the Revolution
Our Glenn Close mini-season - which we're now dubbing 'Close Encounters of the Glenn Kind' - continues with an episode dedicated to Dangerous Liaisons, in which the actress gives one of her most memorably villainous performances as the scheming ari…
#111 | Fatal Attraction 2: Bitches Be Crazy
Having recently discovered that Harry has only ever seen two Glenn Close movies in his life - one of which being Guardians of the Galaxy - we decided to dedicate a season to the iconic 7-time Oscar non-winner. First up, the terrifying 80s erotic th…
#110 | Being Benjamin Button
Over the course of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a man lives an entire lifetime in reverse. After sitting through the three-hour runtime, we felt like we could relate to the experience.  Directed by David Fincher from the short story by F. S…
The Artist 2: An April Fool's
As a special treat, we thought we'd put out this week's discussion of the Oscar-winning silent movie 'The Artist' a few days earlier than usual. Enjoy!
#110 | The Artist
As a special treat, we thought we'd put out this week's discussion of the Oscar-winning silent movie 'The Artist' a few days earlier than usual. Enjoy!
#109 | John Carter Must Die (feat. Fake Nerd Podcast)
John Carter of Earth? John Carter of Mars? Frankly, as far as we're concerned this unholy mess of a movie should have been called John Carter and the completely incomprehensible plot.  Directed by Pixar legend Andrew Stanton and starring Battleship…
#108 | The Martian 2: Life On Mars?
Like most moviegoers, the last couple of years have kind of soured us on the screen talents of Matt Damon. Movies like Downsizing and Suburbicon haven't exactly made the best use of his talents, to put it mildly. So revisiting The Martian was a tim…
#107 | The Dressmaker 2: The Hemsworth Curse
We're back, you bastards! This week's episode may be arriving slightly late, but we hope the choice of movie justifies the wait. The Dressmaker is a real curio - a hilarious Australian revenge comedy/drama starring Kate Winslet, Liam Hemsworth and …
#106 | The Shape of Water 2: The Sea-quel
This time last year, The Shape of Water was crowned Best Picture at the 90th Academy Awards. Twelve months on, has the movie lost any of its lustre?  As we bid adieu to another year of Oscar-watching, we decided to revisit Guillermo del Toro's fant…
#105 | Clue 2: Into The Hasbro-Verse
Was it Mr Green in the Hall with the Revolver? Or perhaps Mrs Peacock in the Billiard room with the Lead Pipe? All the cards are on the table this week, as we conclude our 'movies based on games' mini-series with an episode dedicated to the classic…
BONUS | Oscars 2019 - The Reaction
It's been a long road, but Oscar season 2019 has finally come to an end. Check out our instant post-show reaction to the shocks, the snubs and everything else that went down in this very hungover bonus episode...
#104 | Truth or Dare 2: Double Dare
What if a classic college game based around uncomfortable revelations and sexy funtimes... turned deadly? That's the premise of the wholly unoriginal but kinda fun teen horror Truth or Dare, which we actually wound up enjoying a whole lot more than…
BONUS | Oscar Best Picture Nominees 2019 - RANKED!
It's the most wonderful time of the year - Oscar Season! Eight movies have been nominated for the prestigious title of Best Picture of 2018... and having watched them all, we have some opinions!In this very special bonus episode of Beyond The Box S…
