Did you know 1990's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was the highest grossing independent film of all time? It was. Did you know creature master Jim Henson lent his magic to the film? He did? Did you know this is one of the most clever films ever written, inspiring countless other comic book movies? That one's debatable.

Scrooged (1988)

12/29/2017
More
Caught in the doldrums between Christmas and New Year's Eve? We've got one more present for you! "Scrooged" might be the sleeper holiday comedy you need this winter. It certainly surprised us. Bill Murray is at his best, and a power-packed cast delivers laughs from start to finish. The visuals are sublime; the jokes are clever, and the humor is fresh -- all without sacrificing some serious heart. It even made Gene Lyons raise a hearty glass of nog and cheer.

“The Last Jedi” is here and dividing fans like no Star Wars movie before. Gain some perspective by looking back on the high point of the franchise: “The Empire Strikes Back.” We bow down to its brilliance and magnify some of the rusty parts that didn’t hold up over time.

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)

12/15/2017
More
Judging Kevin Costner's "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" requires one simple question: Not "is it a good movie?" but "Is it worse than 'Willow?" And, thank Alan Rickman, Robin hood is just a bit better. Still, horrible scripting, schizophrenic moods, hammy stunts, bad accents, and a mind-boggling 155 minute run time make "Prince of Thieves" the king of wasted potential.

Seven (1995)

12/1/2017
More
Anybody can make a slasher flick. And talented directors can pull off thrillers. But "Seven" is a masterpiece only David Fincher could pull off. Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Spacey and Gwyneth Paltrow round out a powerhouse cast that elevates the grotesque to art. This movie is dark, edgy, poetic, symbolic, and twisted. How the hell was Gene disappointed? Leave a Review - http://shatthemovies.com/review Vote for Movies - http://shatthemovies.com/vote/ Subscribe & Social Media -...

Planes Trains & Automobiles (1987)

11/25/2017
More
Easily excitable Neal Page (Steve Martin) is somewhat of a control freak. Trying to get home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his wife (Laila Robins) and kids, his flight is rerouted to a distant city in Kansas because of a freak snowstorm, and his sanity begins to fray. Worse yet, he is forced to bunk up with talkative Del Griffith (John Candy), whom he finds extremely annoying. Together they must overcome the insanity of holiday travel to reach their intended destination. Leave a...

Point Break (1991)

11/17/2017
More
Sometimes, a laughable idea makes for a fascinating film. Surf gangs that double as bank robbers? Keanu Reeves as a tough-talking undercover FBI agent who also happened to be a football star name Johnny Utah? Gary Busey swimming? But then something magical happens. And it's called Patrick Swazey.

Predator 2 (1990)

11/10/2017
More
Predator rocked the barrier between action and sci-fi when Arnold Schwarzenegger battled a new kind of enemy in 1987. This isn't that movie. On its face, taking the thrilling Predator formula and applying it to an urban setting makes for a good movie. Throw in big names like Danny Glover, Bill Paxton, and Gary Busey, and you should have a blockbuster. So how did 1990's Predator 2 fail? We'll tell you how!

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

10/31/2017
More
"A Nightmare on Elm Street" introduced us to a new slasher villain, a new horror universe, Johnny Depp and blood-fountain waterbeds. But 2/3 of our panel was not impressed with how it holds up in 2017. Wild imagination clashed with goofy execution. Classic lines were fumbled by idiot actors. What we're saying is: Nightmare isn't bad, but don't waste Halloween watching it. Leave a Review - http://shatthemovies.com/review Vote for Movies - http://shatthemovies.com/vote/ Subscribe &...

Poltergeist (1982)

10/26/2017
More
Steven Spielberg made it, and it's widely considered a horror classic. So why is "Poltergeist" just ho-hum? Is it the bi-polar mood of the film? The shoddy acting? The complete misunderstanding of how actual people react to horrifying events? Or are we just haunted by the memories of days when something this hokey seemed scary?

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)

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.

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.

Allow us to wipe the fog of age from your memory and revisit all the moments that made Caddyshack Hollywood's worst great comedy.
