22. Morons From Outer Space
It's another returning guest, as Looks Unfamiliar host Tim Worthington is back, and he's brought some Morons From Outer Space with him. Directed by Mike Hodges, who also brought us Get Carter, a very different movie.
Starring Mel Smith and Griff Rhys-Jones, there are lots of comparisons with other British TV comedians and the numerous sci-fi films that this film rips off and perhaps inspired.
During the pod, I reference a BFI piece about the movie, including a video interview with the director. Here's the link: http://www.bfi.org.uk/news-opinion/news-bfi/features/why-i-love-morons-outer-space
Hopefully Tim will return to discuss some more movies - in the meantime, his podcast is essential listening and is one of a number of nostalgia goldmines on his website https://timworthington.org/looksunfamiliar/
