Road House (1989)

8/16/2018
More
“Road House” invented the good bad movie. But was it actually any good? Patrick Swayze was charming but grossly undersized. The script was quotable but largely nonsense. And did you know Road House is two words? Whether you relished Sam Elliot’s smooth bass and glorious mane or cringed at the ridiculousness of tearing out throats, one thing is for sure: the boobs, butts, and bar fights were pure ‘80s.

In The Mouth of Madness (1994)

8/9/2018
More
"In The Mouth of Madness" is a cult film that pioneered themes that pushed the boundaries of cinema from 1994 to present day: self-referential film making, Lovecraftian horror, and the general questioning of reality. But does it deserve to be labeled a horror classic? Every spooky twist on insanity is hamstrung by an awkward acting performance. Every slimy John Carpenter monster is countered by a bizarre herpes kid. This is a movie of high aspirations and stumbling execution. How does it...

The Goonies (1985)

7/19/2018
More
Was Chunk fat-shamed or fat-famed? Does foreclosure really need to be explained? What's the proper etiquette for wishing well coin collection? And does One-Eyed Willy's hoard count as buried treasure or a fortune lost at sea? Gene and Big D fight for the honor of "The Goonies" as Roger argues it's childish nonsense. In "The Gooonies," a band of kids who live in the "Goon Docks" neighborhood of Astoria, Ore., attempt to save their homes from demolition, and, in doing so, discover an old...

Showgirls (1995)

5/17/2018
More
Like Cristal Connors (Gina Gershon) and Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley) bonding over their shared joy of eating the same brand of dog food, Roger, Dick and Kerri sit down to discuss the 1995 Paul Verhoeven "Classic" Showgirls. Showgirls promised to expose the inside workings of Las Vegas, stripping, and hooking... but instead all we learn about was the hazards of monkey-poo on stage, unexpected uses for ice cubes and how to get beaten into a coma by a superstar musician.

The Big Lebowski (1998)

5/2/2018

Jeff Bridges plays Jeff Lebowski who insists on being called "the Dude," a laid-back, easygoing burnout who happens to have the same name as a millionaire whose wife owes a lot of dangerous people a whole bunch of money -- resulting in the Dude having his rug soiled, sending him spiraling into the Los Angeles underworld.

Speed 2: Cruise Control (1997)

4/8/2018
More
Can you really call it a movie "Speed" when it only goes 17 knots? Can you call a movie "Speed" when it doesn't have Keanu Reaves? Can you even call this thing a movie? Impossible physics, premarital bickering, misplaced comedy, pedophilia, and a fundamental misunderstanding of copper poisoning make this one of the worst films Shat The Movies has reviewed. But is it THE WORST? Listen and find out. Shop Amazon With Our Free Affiliate...

Rounders (1998)

4/8/2018
More
Poker talk, smart voiceovers, Matt Damon in gigantic clothes, Ed Norton as Tyler Durden, John Malkovich butchering an accent, and John Turturro showing his deeper side. "Rounders" is the gold standard for poker movies, and listener Greg R. loves it so much he sponsored this review. In this episode, Roger reveals his gambling addiction. Gene reveals his heartbreaking struggles with friendship, and Big D gets turned on by jargon. Plus, explore the theory that "Rounders" is just "Fight Club"...

Spaceballs (1987)

3/31/2018
More
Spaceballs wins our Best of John Candy category, bringing Roger and Gene together against Big D for the first time ever. Hop aboard the Spaceball One as we blast through the fourth wall, celebrate Rick Moranis, learn about George Lucas' involvement, and debate whether this movie is funny at all. Roger quotes basically the entire movie. Gene gives in to a rare laughing fit. And Big D assumes he's being punked by their enthusiasm. Shop Amazon With Our Free Affiliate...

Backdraft (1991)

3/20/2018
More
Backdraft taught us to yell at fires, run into burning buildings, cool off our sexy bods by firehose, and never, ever let our estranged sons help us make breakfast. And who knew you could make millions converting firehouses into community centers? There's a lot of wisdom in this 1991 Ron Howard cheesefest, but very little of it has to do with fire. Big D examines when it's OK to bang your ex-wife. Gene cautions against lit cigarettes at arson investigations, and Roger gives a lesson on...

Real Genius (1985)

3/13/2018
More
A deliciously young Val Kilmer, an even more delicious young Sarah Jessica Parker (played by Gabriel Jarret), a billion lasers, boring montages, horny cosmetologists, unreal liquid nitrogen, unbelievable penis hammering, Jesus in the teeth, Tear for Fears, and the most famous popcorn scene since Troll 2. "Real Genius" (1985) took the '80s nerd genre to new lows but still managed to exude some genuine charm. Kerri Gross gets hella scientific. Roger does the math of statutory rape. And Gene...

Jurassic Park (1993)

3/4/2018
More
The most iconic scenes in movie history, sexy Jeff Goldblum, goosebumps aplenty, a triceratops turd too high, hyperconfident scientists, unnecessary fence climbs and adorable velociraptors made 1993's "Jurassic Park" a movie unlike any other. Roger defends the strength of fiberglass. Gene actually has fun for once, and Kerri downs an entire bottle of wine before slurring through the entire Visitor Center action sequence. It's a Shat The Movies 65 million years in the making! Shop...

Braveheart (1995)

2/23/2018
More
Premature kilts, revised history, foppish Brits, Crossfit Scots, a 40-year-old Mel Gibson, a hot 9-year-old princess, undying love, and a romance nobody wanted to see. "Braveheart" brought a new degree of violence and complexity to the historical action genre and made 3 hours fly by. Don't miss Roger Roeper's triumphant and sexually-charged return to Shat The Movies, Big D's baffling discussion of black eyes, and Gene's uncomfortably intimate recollections of his high school science...

Timecop (1994)

2/13/2018
More
Laughable wardrobes, finding excuses for Jean Claude Van Damme to kick things, gratuitous Belgian sex, gratuitous Belgian sax, an avalanche of one-liners, massive plot holes and The Splits Over Troubled Waters ... it's Timecop! Gene gets deep into physics and time travel theory. Kerri eviscerates the previously unknown "Timecop is like Blade Runner" crowd, and Big D perfect YET ANOTHER action star accent.

Conan the Barbarian (1982)

2/6/2018
More
Soundtrack of the gods, camel-punching, surprise romance, imperfect allies, meaty snakes, cannibalistic orgies, and a unanimous Shat Score. Conan The Barbarian often is lumped in the same shitpile as other fantasy movies, including its sequel, but this abused gem gets nearly everything right. Hear all the reasons to love this not-quite-blockbuster underdog, including its strange literary origins and historical references, and learn just how dangerous this movie was to make. Big D...

Casino (1995)

1/31/2018
More
A sparkling Sharon Stone, labyrinth storylines, crappy explosions, loud suits, popping eyeballs, James Woods pimpin', and a Joe Pesci blowjob? When you want it all, "Casino" delivers. And it takes 3 tectonic hours to do it. Guest host Kerri Gross lends a female touch (sorta), encourages domestic violence (sorta), and tells us about the one time she put a glass pipe where glass pipes shouldn't go. Gene counters with a tale of his "gooch" and laments the loss of a Robert DeNiro in his...

Flatliners (1990)

1/23/2018
More
"Med students explore to see what might lie beyond death" might be the advertisement, but what we got was the old bait-and-switch. Instead of that exploration, Flatliners gives us pseudo-Freudian analysis delivered by 1990's Brat Pack 2.0... all of which we found surprisingly enjoyable.
