#42 - It's A Wonderful Life / Our Top 5 Films About Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone!
We're in the festive mood today as we breakdown the 1946 Christmas Classic 'It's A Wonderful Life'. Listen on as Daniel makes up a new word, Dean can't pronounce 'apothecary', and we both wonder what it would've been like to live in the year '40'.
As well as the breakdown, we give our 'Top 5 films about Christmas' and find out the results of Pod v Pod XI in our 'Non Disney Animated Films' draft. We also look at the match up for the Grand Final of our best 1940's film tournament, and find out what movie we'll be watching next!
So come on in and join our journey!
