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.

In 1978, the major studios were left in the wake of Star Wars trying to get science fiction films in theaters. Paramount Pictures, holders of the rights of a long-cancelled yet beloved television series called Star Trek, pulled it's creator and nearly the entire original cast back to active duty with famed director Robert Wise to create what would be one of the most divisive starts to a film franchise of all time. But does the film deserve the ire of critics and fans alike or is there more deep inside the nebula cloud that is the script? MovieDude Eric and Kent journey where quite a few podcasters have gone before to discover the truth.
