#10: The Bad Idea Podcast Holiday Special: A Very Belated Renny Harlin Christmas

Download episode here.

Episode Description: This time on Bad Idea Podcast, Simon & Steve tackle Finnish enigma Renny Harlin. The idea: figure out what makes him tick—why some of his films are exemplary, incomparably enjoyable junk while others are just junk. After a smorgasbord of pirates, prisoners, puppeteers and wee-otchs, we’re still not sure of the answer…but dammit, we can fake it like you wouldn’t believe. For the Grab Bag, we tackle Olivier Assayas’s Irma Vep, which will knock your ass on your ass.
