Show Notes

Adam and Blake return with special guest Josh Arnett (the three best Film Friends there ever were) to begin what will undoubtedly be an ongoing discussion of the representation of toys in film. We discuss: Child's Play, Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure, Small Soldiers, Big, and Batman Returns (not a toy movie). We flirt with: The 40-Year-Old Virgin, The Toy, Weird Science, Toy Story, and TOYS (1992). Blake wishes with every part of his soul that full-time toy tester was a real job. Guest star: Jessica (AKA Mister Producer) Theme music by More of That (moreofthat.bandcamp.com) Content note: Danny DeVito's nude body, hairless and writhing in goo, bird-deformed, and otherwise nasty.

27. Shelf Life Holiday Edition: Life-Size 2: A Christmas Eve

It's still Christmas here on Shelf Life! We're only 5 days late! This time we're talking all about a little Christmas toy movie called LIFE-SIZE 2 which may or may not have the subtitle "A Christmas Eve." This movie poses the question, What if a Mattel-type company decided to cancel a Barbie-type doll in favor of something called "video game apps," causing the doll turn human in an attempt to save her own wretched life? Also, a spoiled millenial learns a valuable life lesson or something, and baby boomer writers teach us what they think it means to be woke. Then, we exchange toys in possibly the saddest gift exchange ever captured on microphone. ~Music credits~ -Shelf Life holiday theme song - More of That (moreofthat.bandcamp.com) -Decorated (Yeah It's Christmas Time) - Redwood -Be A Star 2 - Tyra Banks feat. New Fear's Eve ...
