Welcome to Multiplex Time Machine.

This weekly limited-run series is based on the idea that 2007 was a surprisingly great year in modern movie history. It saw bad movies, good movies, and GREAT movies, but more than anything, it saw NOTABLE movies. Every episode of this show will look at a release from that same week 15 years ago, in 2007.

We're halfway through 2007, and we're celebrating with a look at Pixar's Ratatouille, originally released on June 29, 2007! Joining us for this episode is Afton Cyrus, a dear friend and more importantly, a test cook at America's Test Kitchen! She had so much great food talk to bring to the conversation that this also ended up being a double-length episode. Bon appétit!

Ratatouille was written and directed by Brad Bird from a story by Jan Pinkava, Bird, and Jim Capobianco, and starred Patton Oswalt, Lou Romano, Ian Holm, Janeane Garofalo, Brad Garrett, and Peter O'Toole.

You can find Afton on Instagram and see her work with America's Test Kitchen Kids!

Multiplex Time Machine is hosted by Jeremy Latour and Ian Averill.
