Sometimes - when you're feeling a bit gloomy, for example, or when you've locked your doors against the onslaught of a global pandemic - you just need to have fun. And sometimes, that fun is pretty disreputable and embarrassing, but do you care? No! Well... maybe just a little. And that's what makes a guilty pleasure: a film that you're almost not ashamed to love, and certainly the love more than beats out the shame, though you would, perhaps, not want to admit that love to God, the world, and everybody on a podcast. And yet, that's just exactly what we're going to do on our next episode: reveal the mortifying (but gratifying!) truth about our very favorite guilty pleasure movies, be they corny romances, racist action movies, dumb musicals, or Swedish nudism documentaries.
We had such a good time re-watching Back to the Future that we've decided to keep the fun going with a whole episode dedicated to our favorite examples of time travel in the movie. Whether it's killer robots from the future, accidentally screwing up the past, or just going on a tour of whatever costume drama sets the producer could get for cheap, we'll be hopping back and forth across the decades.
In Worth Mentioning we cover The Willoughby's, Emma and The Rhythm Section.
