In 1969, as the Summer of Love was in full swing, so was Swingin' London full of posh trends, which included a vibrant hip film scene with a new generation of British actors filling the cinemas. One of those new faces were Michael Caine and The Italian Job was to be his star vehicle into Hollywood. Despite being a box office failure, it was a cult favorite in part due to its unique cast and pithy dialogue. But did it deserve such cult status or should it have been stranded in the 60s? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris team up to blow the bloody doors off this caper.

In 1997, 27-year-old auteur filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson burst onto the scene with his sophomore feature film Boogie Nights, set in the seedy side of adult films during the 1970s and 80s as we follow a young man who rises to the heights of stardom before falling deep into the pits of drugs and obscurity. But does the film deserved the Academy Award nominations for screenplay and acting for both Burt Reynolds and Julianne Moore or should it have arrived dead on arrival? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris reveal all.

In 2016, director Taika Watiti followed up his cult film What We Do In The Shadows with Hunt for Wilderpeople, a comedy about an uneasy alliance between a young portly troublemaker and an older survivalist, both on the run from the law in the wilds of New Zealand. But does the film deserved the acclaim from fans and critics or should it be mauled by wild pigs? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris find out.
