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 Summer returns with Aliens; the sequel to the 1979 horror classic that completely changed the game in both the tone established by the original film and the scope of sequels moving forward. This time helmed by James Cameron, the story of Ellen Ripley has her returning to the planet that has started her nightmares, this time along with a platoon of space marines to do battle with not just one but an entire colony of the xenomorphic monsters. But does the film deserve the adoration of critics and fans alike or is it a bastardization of a beloved classic? MovieDude Eric, Kent and special guest Jeannie from Tyrion's Landing Podcast strap in to find out.
