UHF - Weird Al’s “Masterpiece”

9/30/2021
Weird Al is the unparalleled paragon on parody. With a musical career spanning five decades, no one can write and perform music send ups as successfully as he can. So surely his one and only movie is great, right?! It has Conan the Librarian, Spatula City, and Wheel of Fish after all. Well, at least it gave us a great performance by Michael Richards. < ’00 | an Art House Empire Production | a proud member of the Greenlit podcast Network | #LessThan2000 Support the show...

Below the Rim – Blue Chips (1994)

9/23/2021
Everyone knows by now the boys love 90’s basketball. What about a movie about corruption in college basketball featuring Shaq and Nick Nolte directed by the guy who did The Exorcist?? This is the movie that made Chad almost get in a bar fight, so you have to listen even if you’ve never seen it! < ’00 | an Art House Empire Production | a proud member of the Greenlit podcast Network | #LessThan2000 Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/lessthan2000)

**SUMMER SPECIAL** True Romance (1993) *An Uncensored Episode*

7/16/2021
Chad is busy being a film director so the summer hiatus is a little longer than originally planned. But the boys got together for a bonus episode to keep you entertained and off the streets. For some reason, True Romance was a movie the guys never really got into back in the day. After watching it for the first time in almost three decades, Chad has some s*** to say! Written by Quentin Tarantino and directed by Tony Scott, starring Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette, and an insanely...

Bustin’ Makes Me Feel Good - Ghostbusters

5/13/2021
This is one of the episodes you’ve been waiting for... Adam and Chad cover their favorite movie from their childhood, 1984’s Ghostbusters. Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ivan Reitman created a brilliant cinematic universe, and Bill Murray was in his absolute comedic prime. Is it still a good movie after you separate it from your childhood memories, or was it all just nostalgia? You already know the answer. The guys get into exactly why it works so well, and destroy the popular arguments...

90’s Grunge & Pearl Jam w/ Joel Egger

5/6/2021
Nirvana. Sound Garden. Pearl Jam. Alice in Chains. These were the thrashing and mopey bands that spoke directly to the disenchanted youth of the early 90’s. (Almost as much as the flannel and combat boots! ) Actor, podcaster, and college professor Joel Egger drops some knowledge about the origins and evolution of the distinctive Seattle sound, and then takes such a deep dive into Pearl Jam that you’ll want to bring your scuba gear. < ’00 | an Art House Empire Production | a proud member of...

Eddie Murphy gets Deliriously Raw

4/29/2021
There can be no disputing that Eddie Murphy is insanely talented. From his characters and impressions to his beautiful singing voice and filthy vocabulary, Eddie Murphy was THE man in the 1980’s. But how does his standup comedy play in 2021? Is it more offensive than it is funny when viewed through the modern lens? Does it deserve a pass, or does he owe a mea culpa to certain groups? Most importantly, is it still as funny now as we thought it was in the ‘80s?! < ’00 | an Art House Empire...

Intentionally Cruel: Cruel Intentions (1999)

4/22/2021
With teen mega stars like Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon, Cruel Intentions was a massive hit in 1999. In fact, it was one of the best films of the 90’s! (Or was it one of the worst movies of all time?) Guess what Adam and Chad think, then hit play to find out! < ’00 | an Art House Empire Production | a proud member of the Greenlit podcast Network | #LessThan2000 Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/lessthan2000)

A Portrait of Pictionary w/ Creator Rob Angel

4/15/2021
The boys class things up by having the inventor of Pictionary on the show to discuss the legendary game released in 1985. Rob Angel gives a “sketch” of his new book, Game Changer, about how a simple idea loaded with tons of dedication, hard work and integrity produced the world’s best-selling board game… and gives Adam some well-deserved crap! < ’00 | an Art House Empire Production | a proud member of the Greenlit podcast Network | #LessThan2000 Support the show...

Nike Jordans vs. Reebok Pumps

4/1/2021
Back in the 80s you couldn’t just have plain old basketball shoes… your shoes had to have an air bubble or pump action! Oh, to be one of the lucky kids whose parent bought them Air Jordans or Pumps. The boys reminisce about the shoes that allowed an entire generation to dunk… or at least think they could! < ’00 | an Art House Empire Production | a proud member of the Greenlit podcast Network | #LessThan2000 Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/lessthan2000)

Sweet Dream Team

If Michael Jordan is the G.O.A.T., what would a team with MJ, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, and countless other Hall of Famers be? Olympic gold medalists and the greatest sports team ever assembled, that’s what! Why was Isaiah Thomas left off the team? (Spoiler: #23) Did Barkley behave like a “rude American” in Barcelona? (Spoiler: He did). Does any other Olympic basketball team come close to the ’92 squad? (Spoiler: not even close). < ’00 | an Art...

Everclear… the Band, not the Booze

3/4/2021
Everclear is just one of those bands that screams mid to late 90s. All the bleached blond hair and quirky ironic lyrics! Were songs like “Father of Mine,” “Everything to Everyone,” and “I Will Buy You a New Life” good, bad, or just kind of average? Chad talks about listening to “Santa Monica” while getting ready for parties that his parents had to drive him to, and Adam starts out by hating on the band but finds a certain amount of respect for front man Art Alexakis by the end. < ’00 | an...

Spaceballs The Movie

2/25/2021
I see your Schwartz is as big as mine! Mel Brooks created one of the greatest comedy/parodies of all time with this classic movie from 1987. Bill Pullman, John Candy and Rick Moranis display their finest comedy chops and lampoon Star Wars and several other timeless sci-fi flicks. The boys have nothing to argue about on this episode… until Adam somehow manages to get under Chad’s skin at the end! < ’00 | an Art House Empire Production | a proud member of the Greenlit podcast Network |...
