We're joined once again by graphic artist and animator Nick Carlin to discuss the best space-fantasy epic of 2002... and it ain't Clone Wars, we're journeying to Treasure Planet. It's the box office disaster Disney would prefer you forget, but does the movie deserve its shameful reputation? Looking back now as adults, we discuss what has aged the best and the worst. The film is stunning, set in an immersive sci-fi world, and examines the importance of role models, there's even a farting alien!

Welcome to WWWW! The podcast where we revisit long, lost childhood movies and unpack their importance to us. We're joined by Matt O'Mahoney, who's a fantastic storyteller and has a deep wealth of film knowlege. This episode we're discussing one of the most insane blank-cheque movies of the 90s. After the success of the original, Warner Brothers studio begged director Joe Dante "Please, we need a sequel, you have absolute power, as long as we can call it Gremlins 2!" And he took them at their word, making an anarchic mashup of Looney Tunes humour and creatures FX.

'The Adventures of Pluto Nash' with Frazer MacLean
Welcome to WWWW, where filmmakers discuss their favourite long, lost childhood movies. Frazer MacLean joins us to discuss 2087's The Adventures of Pluto Nash. This movie was sort of our white whale, we both loved it as kids and hadn't seen it in nearly two decades. It was our Star Wars... well, Star Wars was our Star Wars-- but we held it in pretty high regard. Now in the sobering light of adulthood, its flaws are clear. It's inappropriate, way too horny and completely humourless but it's not all bad, there's fun world-building in Little America. We cover Eddie Murphy's career in the early aughts, Frazer theorizes about the underlying robot revolution storyline and we imagine a good 2021 remake!  If you enjoy the episode, please rate us on Apple Podcasts and have your review read on the next episode!

We discuss how we first discovered it on TV, the imaginative world building and the special effects.  Most importantly, we answer the large question hanging over this movie: What the hell is that black goo leaking out of Gary Oldman's forehead.

This episode is especially short because Will made a mistake while recording, so it's a bit of a Frankenstein episode.  Rate us on Apple Podcasts and have your review read on the next episode!
