6/13/2021
Back in the 1990s, the world had a vague idea of how the internet might look - and that image inspired a range of movies!

Ten Things I Hate AboutYou

6/6/2021
Of all the attempts to adapt classic literature into modern cinema of the 00s, Ten Things I Hate About You is arguably the most successful.

Romy & Michele Go To Vegas

5/30/2021
At the height of the Friends phenomena, virtually all of the principal cast set out to establish their movie careers outside the show. Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox may have scored bigger hits at the time, but none landed a cult comedy quite as beloved as Romy & Michele's High School Reunion. In this week's podcast. we discuss 90s fashion, Mira Sorvino's Oscar-worthy voice work, a scene-stealing Janeane Garofalo and much more as we pitch sequels for one of the most delightful - and...

Armageddon 2: Harry's Last Stand

5/24/2021
When it comes to 90s Blockbusters, they don't come much bigger - or dumber - than Michael Bay's Armageddon, a bloated disaster epic with a relationship to science and characterisation which could best be described as 'loose'. In this week's episode, we try to find some good in this much maligned movie, while also pitching some sequels to bring this cash cow back to the big screen - with or without Bruce Willis and his distracting frosted tips... ----- Beyond the Box Set is a movie podcast...

Shadow in the Cloud 2: Babies in Space

Something Wild feat. The Contrarians

5/9/2021

Parasite 2: Reunification

True Romance 2:Elvis Has Left The Building

4/18/2021
Based on an early script by by Quentin Tarantino, but directed by popcorn maestro Tony Scott, True Romance is a genuinely wild combination of styles with an insanely stacked cast of early 90s stars - from Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette as the unfeasibly gorgeous romantic leads to hilarious supporting turns from Brad Pitt, Gary Oldman, Samuel L Jackson and many more.

Dreamgirls 2: Divas Reunited

2/21/2021
Originating as a hit Broadway stage show, Dreamgirls tells the story of a popular sixties girl group who bear a striking - but entirely coincidental - resemblance to The Supremes. The film version starred Beyonce in the Diana Ross role, but it was former American Idol alumni Jennifer Hudson who stole the show, winning an Oscar in the process.
