163: SFFCH – Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

163 Lara Croft Tomb Raider

Jamie just loves to punish us with video games movies, even though it is a universally accepted FACT that they are all bad. Although, to be fair, he has brought us probably one of the least-worst attempts at adapting one with¬† ‘archeologist’s nightmare’ Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.¬† Some of us have nostalgic attachment; some of us don’t, but all of us have a lot to say this time round in a discussion that contains: villainous lounging, Daniel Craig’s atrocious American accent, British ‘comic’ relief, Lara Croft’s absolute perfection, punctuation problems and, of course, those infamous breasts.

126: SFFCH – Pee Wee’s Big Adventure

126 Pee Wees Big Adventure

Ah! Tim Burton! We all recognise his quirky, dark and colouful style, but will his presence shine through in his feature debut ‘Pee Wee’s Big Adventure’ from 1985? It’s Jamie’s choice this time and Ant and He seems to be in the know about Paul Reubens’ comedy creation of Pee Wee Herman, but Rich and Abi are left baffled. Needless to say there’s some division about this road movie/wild goose chase about a stolen bike, but maybe we all converge on our opinions of the titular Pee Wee. (Spoiler Alert: it ain’t pretty) Topics discussed include: Paul Reubens’ dubious past, nightmarish clown-doctors, Pee Wee’s redemption(?) for saving a pet store and Tequila!
