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 1983, provocative filmmaker Bob Clark started a collaboration with author Jean Shepherd to bring several of his acclaimed short stories to the silver screen, the most notable one about a young boy whose obsession for a new air rifle would be the catalyst for comedy. But is this film the best gift under the tree or does it deserve a bar of soap in the mouth? Eric, Kent & Lobster bundle up and find out.
