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 1993, director Tim Burton was at the height of his popularity when decided to work with Disney on a stop motion animated project based on his original story, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Tapping famed animator Henry Selick to direct, he set out to tell the story of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloweentown who devises a crazy plan to take over Christmas. The film garnered a cult following over the years and is now considered a genuine holiday classic. But does the film deserve the acclaim or should it be sent gift-wrapped to the lair of Oogie Boogie? Eric, Kent & Lobster get into the spirit of the holidays in this Halloween holiday special.
