We’re taking a break from our regularly scheduled programming this month but that doesn’t mean we’re not going to deliver the hot quality pod you’ve come to expect! This week, for our first episode of Bonus Content January, we managed to land an interview with the multi-talented, in-demand costume designer Mairi Chisholm. Join us for a delightful conversation about the ins and outs of the biz, fatherly expectations, and what panty lines (or lack thereof) say about a character.

To close out his exploration of childhood favorites, Matt chose the magical animated classic, The Little Mermaid (1989). While certainly nostalgic, as far as we’re concerned this magnificent musical masterpiece is a triumph of filmmaking that warrants continual celebration. The memorable characters, excellent music, brisk pacing, and stunning animation all add up to what can only be described as a perfect viewing experience. Join us as we discuss trans parables, aqua college, and the finer points of maritime law this week on Ex Rated Movies!
This week, in what has to be one of our most convoluted setups to date, award-winning filmmaker Devin Sheridan joins us to talk about a multi-titled 1980’s Hong Kong action flick that neither of us have seen before called Above the Law (1986). And while this movie does have a plot, we all agree that the weaponized accessories, handcuff kung foolery, and Cynthia Rothrock (aka Cynthior Ragnarok) are what make this film a choice cut. Join us as we imagine Robert Shapiro in a Marcia Clark wig, a battle between a turtle and a squirrel, and a perplexing new name for the internet this week on Ex Rated Movies.
The Large Marge Sent Us Podcast-style childhood-shaping hits just keep on coming! This week we’re yammering on about a humble little time travel movie that goes by the name of Back to the Future (1985). Huey Lewis tunes and ginger discrimination not withstanding, this blockbuster soars on an updraft of unique performances, a rousing Sylvestri soundtrack, and a script that’s tighter than a parking space at Trader Joe’s. Immerse yourself in our bloviations on Billy Zane’s baldness, Doc Brown’s bribery, and Ryan’s basic-ass Letterboxd account this week on Ex Rated Moves!
