Pretty straightforward. We watch all the movies of famous filmmakers and then discuss anything and everything that happens to interest us about them.

George Miller has a most curious filmography.  The same man responsible for four Mad Max movies wrote and directed the Happy Feet movies and Babe:  Pig in the City.  In this episode, we rank the Mad Max saga, discuss the merits of Happy Feet (winner of an Academy Award), and delve into the mythology and messages of Miller's films.  How did a low budget Australian action movie spawn a franchise?  How are dancing penguins criticized as being anti-Christian?  Listen as we try to answer these and more questions about this fascinating filmmaker.
