Nerds Assemble episode 53: Bullies, giant robots and growing-up

This week: Blake’s 7Call of Duty: Ghosts, Mark Wahlberg, kids films and more!

Join Emily, Paul and Paul (sorry, no Retroid this week) as they discuss:

The final part of this episode is spent looking back at films from our childhood and contemporary kids’ films (from those targeted at under 10s to ones more suitable for 11+). Disney comes under close scrutiny (Emily didn’t like The Little Mermaid), and we acknowledge that kid’s films as a whole have got some worrying tropes.

(Our favourite films when we were kids: Cookie – Transformers: The Movie and Labyrinth, Paul – Ghostbusters II, Emily – Flight of the Navigator.)
