FH Mini 107 – A Talk with Tom Holland!

We got the amazing opportunity to talk with Tom Holland, the writer, director, or writer-director of horror movies and thrillers including Child’s Play, Fright Night, Thinner, Class of 1984, Cloak & Dagger, Scream For Help, and Psycho II. As three nerds who grew up with this stuff, you can imagine how excited we were to talk to Mr. Holland, and he was just a delight! We hope you enjoy it as much as we all did.

Episode #428 – Rebel Moon Part 2: The Scargiver

We had to do it. We had to return to that ol’ Rebel Moon to see what happened to all our favorite space pals, like… uh… there was the one guy who trained like, a bird dragon? And, um… Lady Sword-haver? And Charlie Hu– no, wait, he was killed in the first one because he was a traitor. There’s definitely a Scargiver in this one, though. That one we’re 100% on. Oh Zack Snyder. We wish we could quit you. But like, for serious. We’re very tired.

Episode #427 – Disclosure, with Meredith Scardino

We were super-excited to welcome Meredith Scardino, the brilliant writer of a billion comedy things, but most recently the creator and showrunner of the hilarious Girls5Eva. If you haven’t watched, please ask yourself what you’ve been doing with your life, then run over to Netflix to correct your error. We’ll wait. Once you’re done, you’ll be all the MORE excited to hear her discuss 1994’s Disclosure, a film that (in the words of Dan’s Letterboxd) “Begins as a dumb and offensive sexual harassment thriller, then wisely pivots into an offensively dumb┬átechno-thriller.” But what do the other Peaches think? Listen and find out!

Episode #426 – Boat Trip, with Alonso Duralde

Alonso Duralde, of our sister Max Fun podcast Maximum Film and many other projects joins us to discuss something that is, technically, a film, and not a pile of feces. But it’s a tough call! In honor of Pride Month and also Alonso’s new book Hollywood Pride, our guest pitched us some bad LGBTQ+ themed movies, and (in lieu of trashing some failed films with their hearts in the right place) we decided to critique one of the most retrograde comedies of the 2000s: motherfucking Boat Trip. Did we regret this decision? Ask us when we’re done crying and trying to wash off the stink.

Episode #425 – The Matrix: Revolutions

We’re going into the matrix this week, in honor of Dan and Elliott’s contributions to an upcoming episode of the very funny The Novelizers podcast, where comedy writers “novelize” part of a blockbuster movie from the past — Dan wrote a “chapter” of the original The Matrix (read by our friend John Hodgman!), and he and Elliott appear on the episode playing characters who worked behind the scenes on the movie. Look for that soon, but in the meantime, enjoy this flashback discussion of The Matrix: Revolutions, our fourth-favorite Matrix movie.
