Episode 102: 28 Days Later… (2003)

The guys wake up from a great 28 day nap in a deserted London on this week’s podcast on Danny Boyle’s 2003 horror classic, 28 Days Later… The Bit Players look back at how the film went on to expand and influence not only the zombie film genre but horror as a whole, whether or not the film’s dissonant halves ultimately mesh well or not, unfortunate child acting, how Boyle’s choice to shoot the film in low quality digital video makes for more poignant (if pixelated) scares, and more. They spend a lot time comparing the zombies of the film to others across film’s history, pitting them together in a battle royale of brain feasting.

Episode 92: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)

The guys head back to Hogwarts for this week’s podcast on the 2005 fourth installment of the Wizarding World franchise, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The guys talk about the series as a whole, how chill the fake Madeye Moody really seems to be (minus the whole trying to kill Harry thing), how they would have handled the order of cooking up a Voldemort stew, and more. Things get interesting when the Bit Players line up to rate the film: will the reactions be as cold as Cedric’s lifeless body or hot as the Beauxbatons students?
