Arthouse Legends Podcast


Welcome to Arthouse Legends Podcast - Where High Art and Geek Culture Collide! The goal of this podcast is to take a look at critically acclaimed and well-received films and consider if these films truly deserve their revered status in the cultural zeitguest. Using our combined film knowledge, geeky obsessions and general fart jokes, we take a bite out of much-beloved films, sometimes in love, other times in scorn, but never out-of-bounds.

May 1, 2015

The 1970s were the time of the epic disaster films, especially the specific subgenre of "Trouble on a plane" movies. Enter Jim Abrahams and brothers Jerry and David Zucker of Kentucky Fried Movie fame. Their film Airplane! would be the first spoof of existing films, paving the way for an entirely new brand of slapstick comedy. But does the film deserve the acclaim and fame it got or does it crash and burn? Eric, Kent & Lobster are boarding the flight.
