Popcorn Culture - Throwback Tuesday: The Iron Giant

It's strange to call a 22-year-old film a "classic", but that's exactly what The Iron Giant is. Directed by Brad Bird, the film tells the story of a kid named Hogarth (Eli Marienthal) who befriends a giant alien robot (Vin Diesel), only to realize the government isn't too happy about the intergalactic visitor. In this Throwback episode, we celebrate the many themes within The Iron Giant and discuss the film's unique position as one of the last few big-budget 2D animations of our time.
