Hey look we don't know why we are doing this movie either. The Christmas spirit maybe? Either way Matiu convinced Sam and Stacey to do the new Christmas Rom-Com, Love Hard. Join us as we ponder things like:

Is it okay to hook up with someone having an alergic reaction? Do rom-coms just legitimize sociopathic behavior?  Have we ever been cat-fished?

Matiu and Stacey join Sam this week to do one of Sam's favourite films. Surprisingly, to absolutely no one, Matiu uses this as a chance to troll Sam. But join us as we ponder things like:

At what point would you have swayed to the non guilty side? Why are there no women on the jury? How many more father figures did the kid kill?

What celebrity would you not shed a tear for if they got chest bursted?  Which member of the Nostomo deserved to die the most? What film would you put a xenomorph into to spice things up?

We've got one hell of an episode for you this week, as we might have finally broken Stacey and turned her into Matiu. And who would have guessed that this weeks movie, the 2011 film "The Cabin in the Woods", would be the one to do it. How and why? Well all will be revealed as we go through q's like:

What monster did we most wanna see come after them? What horrifying event would be happening in New Zealand? Why the hell did you make me watch this?

Hey everyone, just Stacey and Sam this week as we throw 20 Q's at the new Bond flick, No Time to Die. Given our questions are pretty spoiler-heavy, here's some non-spoilery ones:

We are celebrating 5 years of podcasting glory (?...sure) by going back and doing the film that inspired the film that inspired the podcast. Matiu, Sam and Stacey are along for the ride as we ponder:

Hey everyone, kiwi collaborations don't get much bigger than this, as we were blessed to be joined by not one, but two of New Zealand's biggest content creators. The first is a returning guest, Thomas of the History of the Aotearoa Podcast. Did he get as drunk as last time? Maybe! But also joining him is Timprovise from The Provise Project, and a ton of other stuff, with links down below. And the movie this week was Napoleon Dynamite, which got the standard treatment, including Q's like:

 

Realistically, would we vote for Pedro? How would we use a time machine like Uncle Rico? What skit/talent would we use to convince kids to vote for us? 

Now links for the guys, you can find more of Thomas here:

Ep 177 - 1917

For one of Sam, Stacey and Liz, this episode has been a long time coming, as they have wanted to discuss one of their favourite films of the past couple of years. For Stacey and Liz, it was a first time watch. But anyhoo, we had an absolute blast as usual as we pondered things like:

What Oscar should this have won, but didn't? Is this movie depressing AF? At what point would we have just upped and bailed on the mission?

Hello good people, we are back this week with another classic film, Jaws, and it quickly becomes obvious this is one of Sam's favourite films. Joining Sam is Stacey and Liz, and as a shock to absolutely no one, it turns out it's another first time watch for Liz. This week we ponder things like:

How did the boat manage to stay together as long as it did? Ignoring the sequels, do you think the Mayor got re-elected?  Did Mrs Brody actually care about her kids?
