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.

Arthouse Legends starts the Holiday Season with an episode that will send you though the back of the theater. In 1988, John McTiernan, hot off the success of Predator, set out to his latest action masterpiece, a film that inadvertantly changed the genre forever, casting comedic actor Bruce Willis as the hard-as-nails New York cop in a Los Angeles skyscraper faced up against a team of terrorists on Christmas Eve with the fate of his estranged wife in the balance. But is this film worthy of the acclaim or does it deserve a swan dive at 40 floors? Eric, Kent & Lobster find out.
