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 1994, after the huge success of Aladdin, Walt Disney Pictures next film was being released to little confidence by the top brass of the studio. What was supposed to be a little film by the studio would become their crowning achievement, a film set in the heart of Africa as a young lion cub is transformed by the tragic loss of his father and forced to face his past as an adult. But does The Lion King achieve Hakunah Matata status or is it a feast for the hyenas? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Special Guest Lauren of Legends of S.H.E.I.L.D. enter the Circle of Life to find out.
