Talk Without Rhythm Podcast

Join El Goro, part-time luchador and full-time cinephile, as he delves into the broad grassy spaces and massed granite tarns of cinema. Each episode, El Goro discusses two movies tied together by some kind of theme. Action, sci-fi, horror, high-brow, low-brow: it's all fair game.

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast, I'm celebrating 700 episodes of TWoRP by returning to start. The Cancer Man returns, and together we're going back to 2010 - the year we began the show. We take a look at the film that won the Academy Award for Best Picture - The King's Speech - and pair it up with the highest-grossing film of the year - Toy Story 3.

Art vs Commerce. Prestige vs Populism. Children's Entertainment vs Colin Firth awkwardly saying "Fuck."
