Eclectica 188 - Christmas Special 2018 + Sorry to Bother You

Dec 12, 2018, 12:08 PM

The fire is lit, the mulled wine has been dished out and the word of the week is 'picaresque'.

It's an Eclectica Christmas party alright, with Aidan, Sarah, Rob and Graham falling hard for Boots Riley's debut "Sorry to Bother You". Granted that's not very festive, but after a potted history of unmade Spider-Men from Mark the second half of the show will have you wishing it was January.

It's not all insane as Aidan has Bill Forsyth's "Comfort and Joy", which is a straightforward tale of Glaswegian ice cream men. Meanwhile, Graham's dealing with the birth of the bigfoot furry sex comedy in the form of Netflix's "Pottersville", and Rob brings the gift of Shatner with "Christmas Horror Story".

Stay tuned for news of our year-end shows!

If you liked the show and want to see it continue in 2019 and beyond then you can help in a number of ways. You can share us with your movie friends, give us a rating or review on iTunes, or head over to our Patreon and send us some pennies (it's the season of goodwill and all that stuff after all).
