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.
We've got a sinking feeling about this as the the good ship HMC faces down something worse than a rogue iceberg.
Yes, it's James Cameron's 1997 mega-hit, Titanic.
But do we agree that this is one of the greatest romantic stories ever told, or does it leave us as cold as the Mid-Atlantic Ocean?
(Also, this was a first for the podcast crew in that this was the first film that made one of our team actually rage-quit the film, before reluctantly coming back to it, out of a sense of duty to the podcast.)
This time we look at 2002's top grossing movie, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. A movie that is so long that it nearly broke the podcast, BUT not so long as to not have multiple confusing problems for anyone who had not seen the first movie in a while.
This time we step back to 2006 for Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest, staring Johnny Depp. The first 'Pirates' film didn't make the list so we have also released a mini-episode covering that film.
Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean - The Curse of the Black Pearl. The first film in this seemingly never ending series of films never made the list, but the second film did, so here's a brief rundown on what happens in the first story.
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...
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?
