As CPH:DOX is starting today, wine aficionado Rune and Marvel-father Tryggvi enter the trenches with Peter Jackson’s new documentary They Shall Not Grow Old. Also, the 17 hour long drone-doc Leaving Neverland gets discussed in excruciating, slowly flying-over-Neverland detail. That, the sleep-training of 3 year olds, some very pregnant ladies and some very strong beer. Hold on tight.

Like them or loathe them, the Oscars are… there. We needed to clear the decks and therefore we talk about a few of the films most lauded at this year’s awards. Green Book, BlacKkKlansman, Roma, A Star is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody and Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse get a breezy, not-so-deep look from the boys. Oscars, be gone!
We’re back! It’s been quite a ride, we’re a little battered and bruised but definitely ready to go. And we go big, as the main feature is Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite, along with discussion about his singular, weird cinematic universe. And finally, we have some very exciting news.
Unfortunately, due to life getting in the way, we have to take another break this week. As a consolation, we have some relevant stuff for you from our catalogue. We feel that maybe this is the perfect time to reflect on the institution that is the Oscars and in that spirit we have decided to rerun episode 38 with our discussion about Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, which got nominated for a bunch of Oscars and won two. If you haven’t heard this one, it’s a doozy. Next time, we’ll be back with a vengeance, and we might have an announcement or two.
We’re back! Tryggvi and Rune make their triumphant return from a deserved break with the light and breezy Oscar nominee First Reformed. But it’s not all fun and games as the boys tackle the big issues of the day, such as noodles, comedy and piss-poor beer.
Happy New Year to all of you. We decided to take a week off to celebrate the holiday season and to recuperate from it. It’s been a busy time for us, but rest assured, we will be back with a vengeance in a couple of weeks and have a lot of movies to catch up with. Today we are re-running our discussion on Phantom Thread, a favorite film of ours from 2018 which we feel has gotten way too little attention this year. Enjoy the show!
Happy holidays folks! We bring you myrrh, frankincense and the apocalypse! Bird Box is the film, plus a look back at 2018 and forward to 2019.
It’s our HO HO HOrrible pre-Christmas show! Monsters old and new make appearances as Rune and Tryggvi check out Christmas horror film Krampus. But it’s not all chills as there is plenty of hygge, the wonderful Nathan Fillion and a special guest appearance by Bobby Ewing.
This aggression will not stand, man. Well, there sure is a lot of it though in episode 58 as Tryggvi and Rune finally get to discuss the Coen brothers’ wild west opus The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Plus, horror teeth, some inappropriate parenting tips and since this is a Coen episode, a rug gets peed on.
It’s a mixed pot of screaming toddlers, sugary drinks and airplane movies in episode 57, before Rune and Tryggvi battle it out over the merits of Denmark’s Oscar contender The Guilty. This may be the most they have disagreed thus far, so don’t miss this one!
