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 1970 was the height of the Vietnam War and most of America was losing confidence in the United States military by the day. Military movies were starting lose their luster as they didn't portray how audiences feel about the military. But then came Patton, an epic 3 hour movie based on the life and legend of General George S. Patton, a brilliant yet notorious military commander of World War II. Playing the titular role was George C. Scott, a respected character actor who would create in Patton a character to root for and to despise. The critics lauded the film for its scope and Scott's performance. Audiences seemed to back them up as the film became a massive success. But does one proclaimed perfect performance make a movie great or does it need to be slapped down to size? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster enlist to find out.
