010 – Pacific Rim!

Let’s talk Mon-stars and Rob’ts! The metal fists are flying and the monsters are a’dyin’ in del Toro’s tribute to Japanese rubber costumes and anime mech-fests, but also there’s an emotional core? And trauma metaphors? And PTSD gets acknowledged? Ollie and I sift through a movie that’s far more complicated than the surface would suggest.

008 – Hellboy II!

In which I BORE Ollie to TEARS with useless info, *but* we have a delightful time discussing “Hellboy II” and all of our BIG BIG FEELINGS.

006 – Pan’s Labyrinth!

This is it. The big one. Ollie and I tackle “Pan’s Labyrinth” a movie that makes you cringe and cry in equal measure.┬áThere’s so much to say about fascism, violence, fairy tales, chalk, innocence, war, nature . . . it’s a big discussion. Join us.

005 – Hellboy!

In which Phil and Ollie wend their way through the surprisingly complicated plot of “Hellboy”; Phil promises to not talk a lot about the comic and then repeatedly breaks that promise; and we manage to justify the existence of Agent John . . . Meyers? Is that his name?

003 – The Devil’s Backbone!

We’ve got spoops! And also the Spanish Civil War. Or, as they call it in Spain: the Civil War. Funny how that works.

002 – Mimic!

We’ve got bugs! It’s Guillermo del Toro’s big Hollywood breakout! Did it propel him to stardom? Maybe not? But, that’s okay!
