This week, Meg's away so 1964 guest Ryan Horwood and I flew back to catch the second highest-grossing movie of 1964, the misogynist masterpiece that needs a long talk about consent while serving prison time: Goldfinger.  Marvel as James Bond is drunk, terrible at his job, and repeatedly captured!  Also he's a sex criminal.

This week Guest Meg Sam Burns and Special guest Rebecca Reeds man the time pumps on a trip to 1986 to see our Podcast's hero's academy award winning performance in Martin Scorcese's pool movie sequel The Color of Money.  Tiny Tom Cruise spazzes out like six times.  It's Great.

This week we maple up the time machine and scoot back to 2006 with special bilingual guest Hunter Collins to catch the highest-grossing Canadian film until 2010: Bon Cop Bad Cop.  It's super great if you are a bilingual person who has lived in both Toronto and Montreal and have a background in hockey controversies.

This week Meg is still outta town so Nigel Grinstead is pedaling the time bike as guest Meg and we're headed back to 1932 to have a look around and catch its highest-grossing movie Shanghai Express!  We talk about aviation pioneers of both the baby losing and pioneering types, go over the time some mounties spent a month killing a snow terminator and then review a movie that is pretty much a real-time train ride with a real chill german lady: Shanghai Express with guest comedian Cathryn Naiker.
