That Podcast Thing is a UK based podcast network that is building up an interesting portfolio of shows. We start with Home Movie Club, where, for each episode, we take an irreverent (and many times irrelevant) look at the highest grossing movies since 1930.
This time we head back to 1935 for Mutiny on the Bounty, starring Clarke Gable.
But did the crew of the good ship Home Movie Club mutiny against this film or did they stay loyal to their Captain? Listen and find out...
David, Jo, Daisy and Sami look at the harsh realities of a Royal Naval life and the differences between film, novel and historical reality.
The gang also try to work out what breadfruit actually is, and then go on to discover the truth about coconuts!
Mentioned on the show:
With thanks to:
1977 saw the release of the phenomenon that was Star Wars! But were we blown away by the 1970s special effects (no Special Editions here, this is the original cut) or did we all think it was just a pile of poo-doo?
You're a Wizard, Harry!
This time we look at the highest grossing movie of 2001, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. (Known as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, if you live in North America...)
This time we look at The French Connection. Will the mix of slow pacing, sudden action and confusing questions make this a Class A film for us, or just a disappointing bust?
Butch and Sundance shoot their way through several bank robberies, but were we blown away by the action or just left cold by the musical interludes?
This time we look at the 1994 animated Disney classic, The Lion King
This time we're looking at the 1976 classic, Rocky
In our inaugural episode we look at the 1964 classic, Mary Poppins.
