Being There, is one of the most highly acclaimed films of all time and is a personal favourite of Wayne's. Throughout this episode we examine the metaphors of the film, walking on water, Peter Sellers last film, Other films involving outsiders such as #ForrestGump, #FisherKing, and the films of #WernerHerzog such as #Stroyzek and #EnigmaofKasparHauser.

In this episode we discuss the 1984 classic comedy #PoliceAcademy, starring #SteveGuttenberg, #BubbaSmith, #GeorgeGaynes and #MichaelWinslow.
We examine the stereotypes, the characters, the legacy, and whether or not the Police Academy film series ended because they could not make the movies any shorter.
Our response to the film was divisive. Wayne thought it was great and that it stood the test of time and considers it the #CitizenKane of comedic cop movies. The Justin's found it amusing but not substantially great. Michelle face-palmed herself at the stupidity of the Police Academy franchise and cannot believe they were able to make as many films as they did.
Bryan is back for a bumper episode, #StarWars: #EpisodeIV #ANewHope, starring #MarkHamill, #HarrisonFord, #CarrieFisher, #AnthonyDaniels, #PeterMayhew and #JamesEarlJones.
Our primary focus was to look at the impact this film had on the #1970s. Through this discussion we look at the initial reception of Star Wars, the changes made to the film over the last 38 years and how it felt to see Star Wars for the very first time back in #1977.
We also get behind the scenes and look at the origins of the film, what #GeorgeLucas expected of the film, the deals he had to make and his bet with #StevenSpielberg.
The audio embedded is from the original teaser trailer released in 1976. We used this instead of the traditional #JohnWilliams score to reflect on what it would have been like to have seen Star Wars in its original run.
In this episode we discuss the final #DonBluth film, #TitanAE, cowritten by #JossWhedon, and starring the vocal talents of #MattDamon, #DrewBarrymore, #BillPullman, #NathanLane, and one of our favourites #JohnLeguizamo.
This is a hard to find film that is out of print in Australia, but has become a cult favourite amongst #Firefly and #Serenity fans for its connections to #JossWhedon and also to animation fans for transcending Cell to CGI animation and utilising #2D and #3Danimation from Industrial Light and Magic. While we had mixed responses to the film, as two of our podcasters loved it, and two were indifferent, but the level of work did not go under appreciated.
The topics we cover include the changeover from 2D to 3D, the end of Don Bluth's career, the rise of Joss Whedon, how much credit does Joss Whedon really deserve, and last but not least, we examine the merits of the film; from story to structure, to voicework, and whether or not the film condones genocide.
