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 1996, director Roland Emmerich and writing partner Dean Devlin released a summer blockbuster that became one of the most discussed films of the year about an alien apocalypse that mixed human melodrama with state of the art visual effects and broad comedy. The result was Independence Day, which became one of the most successful films of the decade and launched star Will Smith into superstardom while cementing the legacy of Jeff Goldblum. But does the film deserve it's status as a pinnacle of 90s cinema or should the lady of magnanimous girth belt out her final tome for the film? MovieDude Eric, Kent, Lobster and All Things Good and Nerdy's Willie Nelson kick the tires and light the fires to find out.
