BONUS | Reviewing The Movies of 2019 - Part One

December 31, 2019
 
As we close in on the end of another eventful year of podcasting, we thought we'd take this opportunity for a quickfire(ish) look back at all the movies we watched in the cinema in 2019. 

From January's Oscar contenders to the hit-or-miss blockbusters of Summer 2019, here's the first half of our retrospective, featuring fresh ratings and minimal spoilers. Part two will follow in a day or two, depending on our hangovers. Hope you enjoy!

Don't forget, you can listen to full-length review episodes for all of these films by subscribing to our Patreon for as little as $2 per month. Go on, we promise it's worth it!

Christmas With The Kranks 2: Ripping off The Kranks

Christmas With The Kranks 2: Ripping off The Kranks

December 27, 2019

For our final festive selection of 2019, our Patreon supporters have inflicted a real turkey on us. Released in 2004, Christmas With The Kranks is a dire yuletide comedy in which wealthy boomers Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis battle an insane horde of Santa obsessives while attempting to skip out on the Holiday season for a year. If that sounds like a fun premise, trust us, we're over-selling it...

Tune into this week's podcast to hear our thoughts on feline cruelty, out-of-place cancer sub-plots and a level of unexamined privilige and flagrant over-spending that makes The Holiday look like a Ken Loach movie...

As always, we've also got drinking games, listener submissions and our own sequel ideas to give this cinematic lump of coal some kind of redemptive quality. The perfect antidote to Festive fatigue!
