    I'm don't really shoot expired film but my thinking is that you should pull the development or overexpose the film. Pulling I believe reduces contrast and color saturation and I would expect that to happen with expired film.

    But more importantly, what effect are you after? You can control the grain and contrast with pushing and pulling and if you want weird colors then cross-process.

    But he did say it is Kodak Gold.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    You're also assuming we don't just want to see flames in a microwave and the aging of the film is of secondary concern...

    You don't want it so hot that it'll melt though. So oven is out.
    Plenty of organic chemicals absorb microwaves and thus heat up.

    Kodak GOLD (which OP has said) is a 35mm film. I *think* it was available in something else long time ago but those has aged all on its own. So I think I assumed right....
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    It's also true, OP didn't exactly say how he wanted the film to "expire...".... Flame will certainly *expire* it!

    YES! Metal in certain length will also resonate with the microwave energy and dissipate as heat. But will film do THAT? I've "cooked" photographic paper once in microwave. It did absolutely nothing. I guess this calls for an experiment! Muahahaha.... (mad scientist cap on) I've exploded fish once in a microwave. Boy that was messy.... but I guess that's not related to this topic.

    Maybe to avoid the high price of buying expired film on ebay? Or did you mean why explode fish in microwave ovens?

    Put it in your car's glove box, a greenhouse, on a hot windowsill or a heater/radiator/your central heating boiler for a few months.
    testing...
