Sorry to say, but this week Doctor Torg is out of comission, too much tainted molerat meat, we've all been there. Elsa is very dissapointed, and can you blame her? That means it is up to Matt and Crankshaft to welcome their guest this week, Dronnie! Dronnie recently left the train that circumnavigates the globe to stretch his legs after a 32 year long trip, and he showed up just in time to watch a Disney movie that is positively a diamond in the rough. That's right, the Disney classic So Dear To My Heart. The classic tale of a boy and his sheep. Trust me, if you haven't already watched it, it is definitely worth a watch, especially because it make the commentary at the end even better.
This week the vault dwellers are visited by the self appointed Elsa, a student at the university, and Doctor Torg's biggest fan. Who knew? They watch the two part movie Fun and Fancy Free. The first half of the film is about Bongo the Bear, who grew up in the circus, but now must try to survive in the wild and use the skills he has aquired performing to make his mark, all the while being literally hit on by a girl bear. We've all been there right? The second story is that of Jack and Beanstalk, but with the classic trio of Donald, Goofy, and Mickey. They learn a little more about package films and try not to explore what may or may not have been some tension.
This week the Vault Dwellers tackle a pretty divisive film; Song of the South. They handle this movie with all of the poise and professionalism that you have come to expect from them. This week they are joined by somebody who can help them empathize with other people Cordon Blue, a fan of the Raiders of Oakland. They share their thoughts on the movie and learn about the raider nation from somebody on the inside.
This week the vault dwellers meet one of largest and friendliest of the wastelanders, Delilah the enormous bear! She is a ravenous hunter, and her prey is... an education. Well, she is in luck, because the movie this week is Make Mine Music, which is like 4 movies in one. Together they talk about hat based stockholm syndromes and whether or not Heaven is closed for good. Trust me, most of it will make sense.
This week the vault welcomes royalty... kind of. In the aftermath of X-Mas The king of New New Zealand joins the vault crew to watch The Three Caballeros, which turns out to be a really strange movie. They learn about what is going on with New New Zealand, and find out just how heavy is the head that wears the crown. Or, there might have been a gas leak. Hard to say.
This week Matt learns about the wasteland Decemember holiday of choice X-MAS! (Insert sweet metal guitar riff here) It's a no holds barred bloodsport that draws crowds from all over the wastes. Needless to say Crankshaft is getting into the holiday spirit. They watch the little known but historically interesting interesting movie Victory Through Air Power, a Disney feature about both the history of manpowered flight and the need for more air power in World War Two, there are mixed reviews. Also, no guest this week, just the regular vault boys. Also if you want to shoot us an email the email addess is VaultA113@gmail.com.
This week the vault is visited by Maggie, a wasteland aristocrat who loves shiny things, and hates to be alone. Crankshaft got a new arm and Dr. Torg tries deperately to impress their guest. Matt... probably did stuff too. The movie this week is Saludos Amigos, a semi animated look at life in South America. It raised some interesting points, but it also exposes Dr. Torg's deep disdain for ducks. Will the airplane make it over the mountain? Does Donald survive falling off of a broken suspension bridge? Does Goofy do something, well, goofy? You'll have to tune in and find out on Vault A113!
It's the year 2512 and Matt, a recently thawed P.A. is coming to terms with his new living arrangement by watching his way through the entire Disney filmography. This week we are joined by Gafunkle, a sentient and adorable plush hedgehog, and boy does this toy have a story to tell... I think I'm getting ahead of myself. He joins the Vault Crew as they watch the classic tale of Bambi. I think more things happen on this episode of the podcast than in the actual film, but that's just me.
