Amber needed a book. It was The Estates of Sarah Holliday, a delicate comedy of manners following a young woman’s trials and tribulations in 1870s New England, and it was the most obscure novel by one Charlotte Winsborough, a fussy and now almost completely forgotten nineteenth-century author Amber had chosen for her dissertation. Winsborough had e…
 
A sombre note to end this season of FWF on, with another death in the Friends universe. Plus, a no-show from a wizard, and Monica makes an angry man some tomato sauce and ends up getting a job. Natch. Thanks for listening to this season, and fear not - we're just taking a couple of weeks off while we have some other work bits to focus on, and then …
 
This week for VOIDTOBER we take on the BEYOND the DOOR Trilogy! Alex get's pretty wild in this one while Christina tries to reel him in. 3 Italian Horror movies that are SBIG. Starting with Beyond The Door (1974) for a silly head spinning tale of a woman who suddenly become possessed while pregnant. It is considered to be the Italian Exorcist rip o…
 
In Halloween (Green, 2018), it is forty years after the 1978 babysitter murders that destroyed the peace of Haddonfield, Illinois, and shattered Laurie Strode’s life. In this “recalibration” of the original, Laurie is now a grandmother and a self-described basket case. She is also a mother who raised her only… The post Episode 142 – Halloween appea…
 
What Mario isn’t telling you… The very first thanksgiving episode, which includes no skiing, three kinds of potato and VD. The classic combo. Plus Ross sings to Carol’s stomach and we finally come up with a name for the listeners to this podcast - so have a listen to find out what you’re all called…. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out in…
 
When you think about TV institutions, Al and Peg Bundy are not really a couple that automatically spring to mind. However, Married...With Children is one of the longer-running sitcoms in television history. How did a show that was a lightning rod for controversy and that is widely regarded as serving the lowest common denominator last so long? The …
 
This week for VOIDTOBER we dive into a few houses that you probably should go into. Starting with a review of THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL (2009) where a babysitter gets the job of a lifetime from a stranger offering 400 dollars for one night. Turns out she probably shouldn't have. Then we continue with a review of WE ARE STILL HERE (2015) about a couple…
 
When he comes home that evening, he wants to talk. He tells her about his day, about an argument with his boss, about the new contract. He relates a funny story narrated by a colleague. He wants her to react. She has difficulty feigning the correct demeanour, or even recalling what it should be. What does sympathetic annoyance look like on her face…
 
This week on the pod we're predicting the fate of each of the characters. We don't know any spoilers, so it's all speculation on our end. The big questions: how long is Ella going to have be the odd man out celestial info-wise? Can Maze finally progress? Are we being foreshadowed about Lucifer's potential mortality, or is it just a red herring? Wil…
 
Sup with the whack Playstation sup. The reason for this request is a bit different to normal…but a good reason nonetheless. Not potentially the greatest episode in terms of showing the Friends in their best light, but there’s still a lot to enjoy. Plus we learn about the saying ‘stealing my thunder’ (spoiler, it wasn’t a Friends original) and Pete …
 
VOIDTOBER BEGINS! That's right our Halloween Season has just begun. This week we are reviewing WITCHBOARD (1986) When a woman gets addicted to the Quija Net she thinks she meets a sweet 8 yr old boy who died but is a man who kills everyone who tries to help her. Then we review NIGHT OF THE DEMONS (1988) about Ten teenagers that party at an abandone…
 
All this talk about getting mojo, losing mojo, stealing mojo... how could we not make an Austin Powers reference? Anyway, powers and their meaning are the talk of the episodes here; misunderstandings abound and Chloe tragically assumes Lucifer knows what the f*ck he's talking about. Meanwhile, Amenadiel angsts about human baby Charlie, Ella's bonin…
 
“No More Mrs Nice Bucket!” A strange Christmas episode of Friends this, with one half-arsed Xmas plot in the three - plus the worst Friends episode for brothers and sisters to watch, because it’s just WEIRD. Luckily, it’s FIREBALL to the rescue. I think this character is gonna be suspicious about stuff. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out…
 
Someone is ALWAYS watching you...That's the premise of the show we're discussing this time around! Person of Interest was an insanely well-received show that got cancelled because...well, you'll have to listen and find out. It's one of Regina's favorite shows ever. Will Cory and Jeff concur with her affection, or will she have a new sworn enemy by …
 
FULCI LIVES! and Alex will never let him die. That's why this week we tackle two newer movies from one of the Italian Masters catalog. AENIGMA (1987). After a prank goes wrong on an unsuspecting girl she's hospitalized with the powers of the DEVIL and exacts her revenge on all her friends. Then we talk about DEMONIA (1990). An archaeological team u…
 
For the first week, she thought he belonged to the power plant; after that she knew better. She had read the obituaries. She saw him first as a silhouette, one more line of the industrial geometries overhanging the boardwalk of Broad Canal. It had been a wet, dispiriting winter full of gusts and mists, but with January the water had finally hardene…
 
Would that I could attach gifs to this description section, so you will just have to imagine the gif of Holt in Brooklyn Nine-Nine yelling BOOOOONNNNNEEE??? Because that's where we're at! Finally! But before we can get there, we have to have the celestial himbo squad confusing poor Chloe about her ostensible "gift" status, Amenadiel pulling an expl…
 
“It’s time to act, my talking props!” I think we’re all in agreement that Phoebe’s dollhouse is much better. Plus a not-so-welcome return in the ‘creepy Geller sibling relationship’ vibe, and we discuss which of the friends characters deserve to be mown down by a cab (sorry Joanna). ——————————— For those of you who have so very kindly asked how the…
 
We continue this week with 2 new horror movies that just released! SPIRAL (2019) that just released on Shudder about a same sex couple that moves into the suburbs when things get turned upside down. Then we watched EVIL TAKES ROOT (2020) about a Filipino demon called the Batibat that finds a new home with a family in the suburbs. 2 New Movies. 2 Ne…
 
The Princess Bride (Reiner, 1987) is having a bit of a resurgence in the popular culture these days. In late 2020, the cast reunited for a fun, virtual table read as a benefit. In addition to that, various actors who are fans of the film produced their own favorite scenes… The post Episode 140 – The Princess Bride appeared first on The Magic Lanter…
 
Charlie Sheen being charming and likeable?? Surely not. And what on earth is a panty raid? AND, if that wasn’t enough, the opportunity to buy some of Pete’s furniture…! ——————————— For those of you who have so very kindly asked how they can support the podcast, we have a Patreon now - it has loads of perks like early episodes with no ads, plus our …
 
**LUCIFER 5B SPOILERS**: we briefly discuss the genre of an episode in 5B from 2:00 to 5:30. If you've watched the promo for 5B this will not spoil you. This week we're discussing two episodes that are admittedly not our favorite of the season. Lucifer's back, but things are not as copacetic with his friends in LA as he might have hoped. After we t…
 
We are back baby! Babysitter that is. With two newer horror comedies that will tickle your funny bones. The Babysitter (2017) w/ Samara Weaving kicking butt or rather killing it while little cole sleeps. You've probably seen it as it released on Netflix years ago. Now the sequel has released so we decided to watch The Babysitter: Killer Queen (2020…
 
You would have hated your funeral reception. Potato-nosed husbands clomping around our parlor in their cheap suits, stinking of naphtha and condolences. Wives with sweat-streaked powder caked in the creases of their necks, like flour-sacks brought to life by a pair of magic dentures. That’s what I kept staring at: dentures, bridges loose over gray …
 
We learn a lot about Warren Beatty on this week’s episode, plus it’s wonderful to marvel at Chandler’s INTERNET MACHINE. The wonders of online dating in 1996 come to the fore, as well as the text-based abbreviations we used back then. And it’s the end of Monica and Richard, in a properly heartbreaking moment *sad emoji face*. ———————————— NEW SPIN-…
 
We are back and pumped to be talking about Lucifer's long-awaited S5! This week we've got our cocktails ready to discuss Chloe's bangs, celestial "genius", Maze's growth and kind of specifically none of the episode of the week stuff. The Mars plot was cool & all, but but there's so much more going on, especially with our new season villain: twin br…
 
Kazuo Hara’s The Emperor’s Naked Army Marches On (1987) is a documentary like few others. Watching Kenzo Okuzaki cut a swath through his old squad mates in search of the truth is unsettling, especially as the process intensifies. Is that because he will resort to violence and deception to get… The post Episode 139 – The Emperor’s Naked Army Marches…
 
Creepy baby pageants, an underwhelming plot about cranberries and Pete really hates Tenet. Plus, a fairly hefty diversion to discuss The Muppet Christmas Carol. And what’s with Joey’s obsession with children’s toys? ———————————— NEW SPIN-OFF SERIES ALERT! We’ve started working our way through JOEY! (Yes, we know. But it’s something we had to do.) I…
 
It's not only our 200th Episode! It's Christina's Birthday! So we are celebrating it with movies that she wanted to check out this week. So she chose HAGSLPOITATION flicks from the 60s! We watched Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? (1962) about a former child star torments her paraplegic sister in their decaying Hollywood mansion. Then we watched the …
 
Well hello Mr Lincoln! The first proper appearance of Frank Jr this week, in a JACKPLOT episode (one where we think all three of the storylines are excellent). In other news, find out why Pete’s having “quite a hedgehoggy day” - plus there’s quite a lengthy diversion about the late 90s/early noughties telly show Changing Rooms (apologies in advance…
 
This week we picked two movies with something lurking behind your clothes nestled deep in your closet and even deeper into your psyche. First we watched an over the top spoof comedy from Troma called Monster In The Closet 1(986). Where the US is taken hostage by a closet monster. Then we take on a much more serious movie with Cameron's Closet (1988…
 
Trouble in Paradise (Lubitsch, 1932) is a frothy, bubbly, and sumptuous perennial delight. With his famed “Lubitsch touch”, director Ernst Lubitsch brought a winking and earthy European sensibility to all his films. He reminded us to not be too serious about anything. Miriam Hopkins and Herbert Marshall are lovers and… The post Episode 138 – Troubl…
 
I chew the leaf and spit out my red days. They splatter. You chew the leaf and spit out your hours of mad redder. They splatter. They chew the leaf and spit out the reddest moments they have ever seen. They splatter. This is a scene of crime, chalk me, morn me, eve me. My red life drying on my chin. Your red history a bitter powder crust. Their thi…
 
Mooooorning’s here…the morning’s here… Another chapter of “Ross being mad” on FWF this week - this time, it’s getting engaged after six weeks. And the rest of the boys aren’t exactly covering themselves in glory either in the apartment swap storyline… Meanwhile, Phoebe wears some Santa pants. That’s literally her entire plotline. ——————————————————…
 
Ever watch a movie and think well that sure hasn't aged too well? This week we dip into a few comedy horror films that have controversial moments in them. First up we put on our best bowling shoes for a gorey insanely graphic slasher romp in a bowling alley called GUTTERBALLS (2008). Lot's of blood bodies and.. more.. Then we dive into an older fil…
 
There were two houses in our neighborhood that we seriously considered, and today we’re sharing a truly random occurrence that involves the house we didn’t buy. We’re also sharing what we learned from our astrocartography readings. What did the stars say about our move to Florida? Were our readings dead-on or completely off? And what random sentenc…
 
This calls for a bottle of Israel’s finest! Lots going on today, including the two of us trying to concentrate on a podcast while it is HOTTER THAN THE SUN. Up for discussion this episode: Little Girl Ghosts, Mike’s uncontrollable scarf, and Ross being incredibly annoying (oh ma god, who would have thought!). Plus, two Brits try to work out what th…
 
This week is extra special! We celebrate our 4 year anniversary and we finish up the official Amityville franchise! Big thanks to all our listeners over the years. We seriously couldn't do it without you. But that's not all! We review Amityville Dollhouse (1996) about a family moving into a home with a dollhouse that is shaped like the notorious ho…
 
It’s hard to believe it’s been twenty-five years since Todd Solondz blessed us with the hero we didn’t know we needed in Dawn Wiener as we meet her in Welcome to the Dollhouse (1995). Simply put, this changed what I thought was possible with movies about being a kid. I… The post Episode 137 – Welcome to the Dollhouse appeared first on The Magic Lan…
 
Our bones are cold. It is the type of cold that comes only after death, and it will never leave us now. We mourn what must have come before: hands holding ours. Sunlight warming the tops of our heads. Cats on our laps and nightclubs where we danced out of our minds and Pop-Tarts straight from the toaster. Life, pulsing hot and fat beneath our finge…
 
"And what will that be on the side of?" One of the maddest Friends b-plots in this episode, plus a classic FWF timeline investigation - and the age old Friends use of the voicemail technology comes into play in part of the storyline. ——————————————————— QUIZ REMINDER! Our next one is on Sunday 30th August - over on our Instagram, of which there are…
 
We continue the franchise of Amityville with parts 6 & 7 reviews! HELP US! The Evil of course has moved out of the house and into the many objects left behind. First we talk about Amityville: It's About Time (1992) when a family in Calabasas California brings a clock home the evil embeds it'self into their lives. Then we talk about part 7 with Amit…
 
The message of this week's show is important to MarvinDog Media, so we wanted everyone who listens to MarvinDog Media shows to have a chance to hear it. Diversity is not a bad thing. Period. This month, the guys talk about a small line from the mid-80s that was born out of a mother's desire to give her son toys that looked like him and his friends.…
 
WHY DON’T YOU LIKE ME? Chapter 1, my first period. (Actually, chapter 1 of this week’s episode is a really extended waffle, and we apologise for that - but it’s all Peppa Pig’s fault, plus Dave has a new podcast idea - and be warned, it’s pretty niche.) Once we actually get to Friends though, it’s all one-woman plays and nighttime tours of button f…
