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 1987, decades before the concept of shared universes and multi-licensing deals would be considered a norm, producer Steven Spielberg and director Robert Zemeckis re-teamed to push practically every boundary of studio filmmaking at the time with their film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, a film noir set in a world where human beings and animated characters live and work together and a boozed private eye is tasked with clearing the name of a fading animated star accused of murder.

The film was wildly successful if not a little controversial for its mature content wrapped inside a family comedy. But does the film still hold up after 30 years of technological and storytelling advances or should it be erased from existence? MovieDude Eric, Chris Tondevold and special guest Cecil Trachenburg from Good Bad Flicks follow the clues to their natural conclusion.
