Trash & Treasures: Toys/Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys


Prepared to be terrified, and not by the ostensible horror movie.

Happy Holidays, listeners! 2018 has been a real butt of a year, but we’re still alive and glad to have you with us. This year’s double feature includes a charming Christmas movie that’s mostly for kids with one or two exceptions, and one starring Robin Williams.
Seriously, though, Toys might be the most thematically mismatched film we’ve seen in a while: war is bad, y’all. Except apparently when it makes you a Manlier Adult.
As a heads up, we had a mic die part way through recording and some other shenanigans, so sorry about any audio issues. Stay safe, and let’s get through the next year together.
