79. Tokyo Godfathers (2003)
Show Notes

As we are still digesting the wildly successful Flogoween season, we thought it best that the team (Ben) put their (his) feet up and take the rest of the year off.

This would allow us (Ben) to immerse ourselves (himself) in the festive season fully, spend more time listening to the many other great indie podcasts (FilmFloggers) and bask in the glory of releasing 31 Horror films during the 31 days of October.

And, to be perfectly honest, let some of the other indie podcasts do some work for once.

Great work, I might add. 

So there's only one thing left to say, Happy...12 days of Flogmas.

And my mum always said she spoiled me at Christmas. (Still does, apparently)

Happy Flogmas one & all!

Who's excited for the 14 days of Floggingtine?

Witty Easter name pending.

Festive topics discussed during the episode include:

More coughing to open up the episode.

What do you want from me, Rode? More money spent on your products? No problem.

Pet Hates, Pet Peeves, don't you hate wafflers? Get to the film!

Ben doesn't have time to wash anymore.

We are severely lacking experience with Satoshi Kon's work.

Listening to Fiona struggle her way through name pronunciations makes Ben feel guilty. Can you repeat that, Fiona?

I interrupt Fiona once, and all hell breaks loose. What did I do?

Is Ben funny? All he was trying to do was save Fiona from herself.

Is Tokyo a hustling and bustling city? We were due to find out in April 2020...I didn't fancy it in the end.

I am reluctant to 'go off' on another major city. Jingle Bells, London smells, LA laid a rotten egg.

Ben can't put sentences together anymore. Haters would say he never could.

Fiona didn't see the religious 'undertones' in this. Christ.

Fiona threatens to walk off. I implore her to think about the fans...'Fan'.

Is attending Sunday Mass the critical ingredient missing from Bens's life?

Ben appreciates getting a word in.

Is Dan Machholz the ghost of Christmas yet to come? 

When have I ever belittled my co-host? Unbelievable slander.

Is the last 15 minutes wholly unrealistic compared to the rest of the film?

Future Ben, past Ben, present Ben is on the verge of disaster.

That tickle in Fiona's throat continues.

Can you differentiate the difference between Animated and Anime? We certainly can.

Fiona gushes about her love for Studio Ghibli.

When are we doing that Chinese-made film, Parasite?
