Is it safe?  Is it still any good?  We're joined by great comedy writer Matt Owen to talk about everybody's favourite running and dentistry extravaganza, 1974's MARATHON MAN. Enjoy!
Because Halloween has just been, we thought we'd do our traditional horror double bill.  Join us for the first part, where we venture down the scary passageways of Herbert Lom's brain while wearing Robert Powell's shoes.  Yes, it's 1972's not-Hammer film, ASYLUM.
2 men have now had some experience with babies, so naturally we're now experts. So what better film to flex our child-rearing muscles at than the 1989 possessed infant laugh extravaganza LOOK WHO'S TALKING.
It's that time of year again when we rummage through Roald Dahl's garden shed and revisit a couple of TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED.  This year's selected episodes are charmingly titled THE UMBRELLA MAN and THE STINKER.  Feel free to make up your own jokes about the quality based on these titles.
Come back with us to 1983 as we see if Steve Martin's cranial surgery comedy THE MAN WITH TWO BRAINS is as screwy as we remember, or is it all just a bit pointy-pointless?  Let's find out, shall we?
It's a very warm & steamy welcome back to Rob!  And to celebrate his return, he's chosen a film guaranteed to make it awkward for Chris to watch on his phone on the bus.  Yes, it's 1992's BASIC INSTINCT.
Chris is joined by Betamax Video Club's Rich Nelson to talk about everyone's favourite film where kids talk about toomahs and genitalia.  Well, everyone's film like that from 1990 anyway.  Yes, we revisit the Arnie comedy classic KINDERGARTEN COP.
Chris is joined in his dojo* by his podcasting sensei: comedian, writer, actor and generally funny-man, Marek Larwood.  Marek has chosen the 1986 martial arts phenomenon NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER, with its spectacle of karate, rapping, body-popping, skateboarding and acting by people who've never really done acting before.  You really don't want to miss this movie, or indeed this podcast. (*garage)
With Rob still away, we've got another very special guest: it's Julia Raeside, whose here to talk about 1998 Aussie rom-dram DEAD LETTER OFFICE.  Well, we talk a bit about Dead Letter Office, but also Neighbours, Howards Way and Simon Groom's guest house.
With Rob away on paternity leave, we've dragged in another Rob.  It's the return of My Mum's Seen A Movie host Rob Marland, who has revisited the 1989 miniaturisation and formicide family favourite, HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS.  Is it worth remembering?  Or should it be chucked in a bin bag and dumped at the end of the garden?  Join us and find out.
This episode has it all: happy news, no-so-happy news, and two very tired middle aged men talking about the 1989 action/buddy extravaganza,TANGO & CASH. For approximately an hour.  Is it as good as we remember, or has it retrospectively F.U.B.A.R.'d?
Here, to terrorise y'all's neighbourhood, is our special guest Michael Legge.  Out of all the films in the world, he decided to discuss the Thriller video from 1983.  I suppose after a long period of self-isolation, he has the funk of 40 thousand years.
Eey up! Join Rob and Chris as we go up north to blow our flugels and bloody euphoniums to revisit the gritty comedy BRASSED OFF.  Is it a brassy breath of fresh air, or a stinking lump of ... coal?
It's New Zealand Special time again, so Rob has chosen the feature length adaptation of the much loved comic strip FOOTROT FLATS: A DOG'S TALE.  Is it a slice of heaven, or a giant pile of dog poo?
What would happen if you missed your train and your life split in two?  Would you cut your hair and quote Monty Python?  Or would you bring out some rather whiffy candles?  That's what Rob and Chris are here to decide as we talk about the 1998 'what if' rom-com, SLIDING DOORS.
If you go down to the woods today, be sure of a big surprise.  And that big surprise is ... special guest Rob Marland from the fantastic My Mum Has Seen A Movie podcast.  Together, we compare foot sizes and discuss the 1987 sasquatch favourite HARRY & THE HENDERSONS.
Welcome to our 2019 Christmas Special, where we take a look at the ultimate Christmas action movie.  No, not THAT one; we're looking at the festive kinky filth-fest that is BATMAN RETURNS.  Keaton, Pfeiffer, De Vito, and Walken In A Winter Wonderland.  Merry Xmas, Sag-Podders!
JOHNSON/WEBB ... Yes, Rob and Chris lovingly smear their hands over each other's faces, as they discuss the 1997 head-exchange action classic FACE/OFF.  This podcast is just under 1 hour long, so if you listen to it twice, you'll have enough time to eat a peach.
Our 3rd annual Halloween Special [insert spooky sound effect] has been made even more special by having a special guest: music journalist and patron of the very helpful Comedy Podcast Devotees site, Fran Jolley.  He's chosen everyone's 2nd or 3rd favourite scary clown movie (or 4th if you include the 'It' mini-series) KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE, for us to enjoy.  Rob and Chris had never seen this before, so there's plenty for us all to experience.
If it's input you're after, then look no further.  Rob & Chris are aliiiiiiive as we trundle back to 1986 and see how the robot right-to-life adventure SHORT CIRCUIT stands up.  It's just a cute story about a charming robot and his boffin pals.  Surely nothing offensive or problematic .... oh!
As Roald Dahl Day rapidly approaches, we're doing exactly what we did last year and are each choosing an old episode of TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED. Bet you didn't see that coming! Rob has chosen the glove-heavy antics of LIGHT FINGERS, while Chris has opted to listen to spiders singing and flowers screaming in THE SOUND MACHINE.
We've unshackled our chains, shaved our beards off and applied vast quantities of Grecian 2000 to tackle the 1993 action movie adaptation of THE FUGITIVE. As well as the normal top-notch blather, Rob tells a disturbing tale from his past which reveals why he has such a connection to Dr Richard Kimble.
For our 2nd birthday, join us as we ride the Porkchop Express into San Francisco's Chinatown region with Kurt Russell and various kung fu experts.  Also along for the ride is our incredibly special guest, Marek Larwood.
The game's afoot, lemon entry, etc.  It's time to see where it all began for little Sherlock and his chum Watson in the 1985 romp, YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES.  Does it go down in a Silver Blaze of glory, or is it a big load of Reichenbach Falls?  Why not find out for yourselves, listeners.
We talk about the 1983 not-Python sea-fairing epic YELLOWBEARD to see if it's stood the test of time.  Is it the epic comedic magnum opus of our time, or is it the Expendables of shit comedy?  Tune in and find out. [WARNING: this episode was recorded in a heavy rainstorm, so there may be a bit of background noise.  Sorry!]
