190: SFFCH – A Boy and His Dog [1975]

190 A Boy and his Dog

Awwww, A Boy and his Dog! Well that just sounds delightful, doesn’t it….? NO! Just…no. If you’re expecting cute, fluffy puppies and heartwarming adventures this week on Spoiler Filled then you are gonna be sorely disappointed. However, we still encourage you to break out your popcorn troughs and apply your white make-up as we all get a bit grim and uncomfortable about this gritty (and far too rape-y) post-apocalyptic sci-fi.

188: SFFCH – Just Like Heaven [2005]

188 Just like Heaven

It seems Rich may have a strange knack. A knack for finding peculiar, yet interesting rom-coms. This week he brings the Spoiler Filled gang Just Like Heaven, one of the highest high-concepts to be applied to this formulaic filmic framework. So was the film just like heaven or just like hell for the crew this week? Tune in to find out in a discussion about: ghostly logistics, ridiculously lavish accommodations, very friendly neighbours and that somewhat perplexing ending.

187: SFFCH – Hunt For The Wilderpeople [2016]

184 Hunt for the Wilder
“We didn’t choose the podcast life, the podcast life chose us!”

We have explored New Zealand a few times here at Spoiler Filled, but we have perhaps kept it’s greatest treasure for the end of the trilogy: Comedy! And right now there is only one name that stands above the rest: Taika Waititi. So this week we take a look at his work Hunt For The Wilderpeople from 2016, a film about outcasts, rebellion, nature, family, the obligatory Rhys Darby cameo and the skux life. Don’t know what that is? Then you’d better tune on for this weeks episode to find out.

*Insert obligatory Lord of the Rings reference here*

186: SFFCH – Doctor Who: The Movie [1996]

187 Dr Who the Movie
We have been dabbling with time travel here at Spoiler Filled (maybe why this episode is a little late, oops) and what better way to usher in the new year than by looking at Doctor Who: The Movie from 1996? Right? Well, if you can think of any other New Years based movies than please let us know, because we struggled. Eric Roberts camping it up, Paul McGann ‘British-ing’ it up, Sylvester McCoy being unceremoniously machine gunned, bendy mirrors, medieval eye portals and very little actual time travel abound in this somewhat sterile American adaptation.
