#90: The Iron Giant

This Warner Bros. animation wasn’t a massive hit when it was released in 1999, but since then its reputation has grown immensely, and now it has a devoted following. And its excellent reputation is well-deserved, too, leaving us both wondering why we’ve left it so long to watch it.

If you have any films to recommend, drop us a line on Twitter or Facebook, and if you have more cash than you know what to do with, you can say thanks by buying us a Ko-Fi.

The first game that Lewis ever played was "Horace Goes Skiing" on the ZX Spectrum. Yes, he's that old.

    1. Yes, good point! Although perhaps that’s rather the exception that proves the rule, considering the swathes of 1950s red-scare movies with aliens standing in for Communists…

      1. Were there really “swathes” of them? The one that occurs to me is Invasion of the Body Snatchers, where there have been arguments about it being both pro and anti McCarthyism. Jack Finney, who wrote the book, said he just intended it to be entertaining and not have any political valence.
