Goodfellas 2: Mob Wife Beauty Shop

Christmas With The Kranks 2: Ripping off The Kranks

12/26/2019
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...

The Princess Switch 2: Electric Switcheroo

12/20/2019
It's double the fun in more ways than one this week, as returning guests Joe and Ollie join us to discuss Netflix's Festive rom-com 'The Princess Switch' starring Vanessa Hudgens, Vanessa Hudgens, and literally hundreds of Christmas trees...

The Nightmare Before Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Easter...

12/12/2019
What's this? What's this?! Why, it's the latest festive episode of Beyond The Box Set, in which we're pitching sequels for Disney's ghoulish stop-motion classic The Nightmare Before Christmas. Released in 1993, the movie tells the story of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween-town who becomes disillusioned with his annual duties and decides to take a crack at Christmas instead. Tune into this episode to hear our thoughts on the twisted mind of Tim Burton, the joy of terrorising...

The Holiday 2: Daddy Issues

12/5/2019
Like a warm plate of Christmas Fettuccine, The Holiday may not be the most nutritious festive treat on the market, but damn if it doesn't hit the spot, despite our best efforts at maintaining our cynicism... Starring Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Jack Black, Nancy Meyers' Atlantic-straddling hit exists in that strange Rom-Com fantasy world where money is no object, every house is either a beautifully isolated British cottage or a lavish L.A. mansion decorated with actual...

Bridesmaids 2: Maid of Honor

11/29/2019
In a strange quirk of podcast timing, Harry found himself forced to watch three romantic comedies in as many days the week we recorded this episode. Will this have any bearing on his reaction to Bridesmaids, the Oscar-nominated 2011 smash from Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo? Tune into this week's edition of Beyond The Box Set to hear our thoughts on rom-com fatigue, unsupportive friends, swearing at teenagers, the comedy powerhouse that is Melissa McCarthy and much more, plus drinking games,...

The Terminal 2: Escape From Krakozhia

11/21/2019
Tom Hanks has starred in five movies directed by Steven Spielberg to date. Of those five, The Terminal is arguably the least-loved. Not only did it gross a modest (by Spielberg/Hanks standards) $77 million at the US box office, it is also the only one of their collaborations to secure zero Oscar nominations. Does this black sheep of their creative partnership deserve to languish in relative obscurity, or is it due for some timely re-evaluation? In this week's episode, we decided to find out...

Fargo 2: Murder in Minnesota

11/15/2019
With winter rapidly drawing in, a chilly thriller set in the frozen climes of the American Midwest seemed like an appropriate choice for this week's episode. Released in 1996, Fargo is one of the Coen Brothers' most beloved movies, and one of the most acclaimed and influential pictures of its time. On this week's episode, we discuss breaking our only rule - yes, we're aware of the TV show - iconic accent work, Gunderson relationship goals, the endless joy of watching Steve Buscemi take...

Fight Club 2: Rom Com Collective

11/7/2019
A controversial cult hit with the most famous first rule in cinema history, David Fincher's Fight Club is one of the defining movies of its era. But does this hyper-violent satire of 90s masculinity have more to offer than a memorable twist in the cold light of 2019? In this week's podcast, we discuss the trouble with Fight Club's very straight, very white, very male point of view, the bullshit philosophies of Tyler Durden, Helena Bonham Carter's fabulous smoking aesthetic and much more,...

Let The Right One In: Curse of the Killer Kitties (feat. The Contrarians)

10/31/2019
Our Vampire season concludes with a chilly Nordic noir about a young Swedish boy who falls in love with a child vampire. Julio from The Contrarians Podcast joins us to talk Stockholm syndrome, incompetent serial killers, CGI cat attacks and more as we pitch sequels for Let The Right One In.

Vampire's Kiss 2: Uncaged

10/25/2019
Nicholas Cage suffers delusions of Vampirism in the insane dark 80s comedy Vampire's Kiss. Now most famous for birthing that meme, the entire movie is a campy, unhinged delight that truly has to be seen to be believed. And yet... we were left feeling that maybe it's actually legitimately good? Check out our full thoughts on the Cage phenomena, incompetent psychiatrists, hostile work environments and much much more in this week's episode... ----- Each week on Beyond The Box Set, we take a...
