Porky's (1981)

10/19/2017
More
Surprise: We kinda liked Porky's. Also surprise: It's wasn't because of boobs (hardly any, actually) or jokes (so many bad ones). The 1981 Canadian-American teen sex comedy actually had some depth to it, dealing with child abuse, misogyny, racism, and possibly the fallout of war. Seriously!

The Matrix (1999)

10/12/2017
More
The Matrix changed the world: new camera styles, new visions of violence, new perceptions of reality, and new uses of vinyl clothing. Laurence Fishburne was unforgettable as the enigmatic Morpheus. Carrie-Anne Moss was sizzling as the sleek and deadly Trinity. And Keanu Reeves was the astoundingly empty vessel we needed Neo to be. But the real star, 18 years after The Matrix debuted, is Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith. Let's review what audiences loved, what still holds up, and what ultimately...

Ghostbusters (1984)

10/6/2017
More
If someone told you "Ghostbusters" was every bit as bad as "Rambo: First Blood Part II," you'd tell him he was crazy. Consider us criminally insane. This iconic '80s classic starring Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver sparked our imaginations and made proton packs a household name, but the years have not been kind.

Back to The Future (1985)

More
In this 1980s sci-fi classic, small-town California teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is thrown back into the '50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) goes awry. Traveling through time in a modified DeLorean car, Marty encounters young versions of his parents (Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson), and must make sure that they fall in love or he'll cease to exist. Even more dauntingly, Marty has to return to his own time and save the life of Doc...

In case you were wondering: No, "Rambo: First Blood Part II" does not hold up. Unless you served in the U.S. Army or really hate computers. From unimaginable POW rescues to an impossibly glistening Sylvester Stallone, this 1985 action drama is the Father of All Action Movie Tropes. Find out what song makes Big D cry, what scenes make King Bee cringe, and what Gene Lyons actually liked about this utter betrayal of its "Rambo" predecessor. . Leave a Review -...

The Blues Brothers (1980)

9/18/2017
More
Was 1980's "Blue Brothers" a perfect movie? Special guest and soul music expert King Bee says yes! Blue Brothers transcended the labels of "comedy," "musical," and '80s movie with incredible awareness of city life and urban joy. It also wrecked over 100 cars and had a massive budget for free cocaine.

Top Gun (1986)

9/5/2017
More
"Top Gun" is the perfect time capsule for 1986, the only year where you could make a successful "American romantic military action drama." We remember amazing performances by Tom Cruise, Tom Skerritt, Tim Robbins, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, Kelly McGillis, and Michael Ironside. We remember Kenny Loggins and Berlin propelling the soundtrack to 9 million copies sold. But many people forget this movie had flaws the size of a Tomcat. Find out if it stands the test of time, and learn way too...

Caddyshack (1980)

We asked your favorite Chevy Chase movie. And you answered "Caddyshack." We groaned. But then, something incredible happened: We kinda liked it. Allow us to wipe the fog of age from your memory and revisit all the moments that made Caddyshack Hollywood's worst great comedy.

10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

7/14/2017
More
"10 Things I Hate About You" introduced us to Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and the unsettling reality that '90s Shakespeare adaptations were a really bad idea. If you remember this movie fondly, you're not alone. If you still think it's good after hearing the podcast, you're a fool.

Independence Day (1996)

7/5/2017
More
This "Independence Day," let's celebrate the 1996 cinematic dumpster fire that made Will Smith a blockbuster action hero and taught us Jeff Goldblum wasn't acting in "Jurassic Park." That's really him. He can actually hack alien computers. Join us as we fly our mother ship of skepticism through plot holes, wildly offensive performances and Randy Quaid's most annoying character ever.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)

6/28/2017
More
If you've seen "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," you remember every scene. If you've never seen it, you probably still know the quotes, the sets, the characters. This movie distilled everything '80s into a tight, fun, stylish package with a little bit of heart, to boot. But Ferris might not be the clever charmer you thought he was. Memories are funny like that. Leave a Review - http://shatthemovies.com/review Vote for Movies - http://shatthemovies.com/vote/ Subscribe & Social Media -...

The Thing (1982)

Do you like totally gross monsters, psychological thrillers, cute dogs and sexy Kurt Russells? If so, you'll love "The Thing." This John Carpenter classic stands the test of time, despite some glaring plot holes. Never before have Americans so smart done so many stupid things in so little time.

Starship Troopers (1997)

6/19/2017
More
Paul Verhoeven's "Starship Troopers" mixes fun, smarts, action, sex and satire into a star-studded sci-fi package. But a lot of people mistook it for cheeseball macho fluff. Let's relive the terrifying Arachnids, quotable one-liners, Nazi-influenced propaganda pieces and -- of course -- the infamous co-ed shower scene. All hands on deck for Starship Troopers.

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

Our mission is to answer "Were the movies we loved when growing up really that good?" Indiana Jones and The Raiders of The Lost Ark isn't as good as we remembered: It's better. If you're sick of hearing us complain how other '80s movies fell short of the mark, this is the episode for you. We'll discuss how Harrison Ford was perfect for the Indiana Jones role, Karen Allen stole our hearts as Marion, the action scenes thrilled us, and Steven Spielberg's direction tickled our brains.

Batman (1989)

Sometimes, a podcast episode comes along and ruins your entire childhood. This recap of Tim Burton's 1989 "Batman" is that episode. Give us an hour, and we'll convince you Michael Keaton was a ridiculous Dark Knight, Jack Nicholson was an unoriginal Joker, and journalists really aren't bad. On the bright side, Prince did put together a stellar soundtrack, and Kim Basinger is undeniably at the top of her game.

This week's theme was 1990's movies with a twist, and listeners overwhelming selected David Fincher's masterpiece, Fight Club (1999). While Brad Pitt & Edward Norton may have acted in the film, the real star was the story. Join Roger & Big D as they explore what it really meant to be a man growing up in pre-9/11 America as they dive into their own masculine failures and shortcomings in a throwback episode of Shat the Movies!

Aliens (1986)

"Aliens" How did James Cameron make a move this good in 1986? Like, seriously, it's impossibly good. Sigourney Weaver is the perfect warrior woman when such a thing didn't exist in film. The story makes sense. The space Marines are badass. Even Bill Paxton's overacting is endearing. On the eve of "Alien: Covenant," let's bow at the altar of the greatest Installment of the Alien franchise. Leave a Review - http://shatthemovies.com/review Subscribe & Social Media -...

GoldenEye (1995)

5/10/2017
More
"Goldeneye" gave us a new James Bond in Pierce Brosnan and type of villain with Alan Cumming's Boris The Hacker. But the 1995 blockbuster missed a Golden opportunity to reinvent a franchise that was long overdue for some growing up. Sure, there were highlights: a sadistically sexy Famke Janssen as Xenia Onatopp, another Sean Bean death and a cameo by Minnie Driver. However, the improbable stunts, goofy gadgets, sexism, misogyny were too much for this movie to overcome. At least there was...

Willow (1988)

5/1/2017

"Willow" might be the saddest movie of all time, because what's sadder than wasted potential? How do you combine George Lucas, Ron Howard, Val Kilmer, a fantasy universe and a massive budget to create absolute crap? Start with casting actors strictly based on their height. Next, add recycled plot lines from "Star Wars." And finally, sprinkle the top with talking animals, absurd accents, nonsensical action scenes and the cheesiest villains in movie history. This is all Gene's fault. The...

Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)

4/27/2017
More
"Who Framed Roger Rabbit" sets the bar for 80s movie effects. It boasts inventive techniques, tons of heart and neurotic attention to detail. Shocked? So we're we. But Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd and the Disney-Warner Brothers crossover made believers of three grown men. Also, Rog did way too much research for this one.
