EPISODE 06 : KRULL (1983)

To conclude the first season on a high, Matt and Dave explore a box office flop! Why? The film didn’t fail – we, the audience, failed the film. Thusly, it is time to join Prince Colwyn and his disparate companions as they journey through all manner of terrors in this visually stunning film to save Princess Lyssa and their planet from the Beast. Fantasy rises from the foundations of sci-fi as we encounter myth with Joseph Campbell and ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces’.

> Dave keeps saying grave instead of glaith. Hmmmmm.
> Dave (again) gets the decade right for The Passion of Joan of Arc / La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc (1928) by Carl Theodor Dreyer, then corrects himself and gets it wrong, twice… yikeees.
