Tripp and Andrew Laino have been watching movies together since 1992, and making fun of them together since 1999, when a rainy afternoon of babysitting turned into 8 straight hours of cheesy science fiction, popcorn and jokes. Raised on a strict diet of 80s adventure, action, comedy and drama, the pair have an undying love for the 1980s and all of the weird, wonderful cinema therein. Since 2014, they've hosted this podcast - every other week they dissect a movie (or sometimes a TV show), finding plot holes, bad lighting and acting choices and the bizarre cinema quirks of 30-odd years ago (Smoking in hospitals! Rubber suits without neck hinges! Corey Feldman!).

    #274 Drop Dead Fred

    #274 Drop Dead Fred

    It's the conclusion of I-May-Ginary Friends Month, easily the worst theme month in the history of this podcast!
    We're visiting with Drop Dead Fred and asking a lot of questions, like: WHO IS THIS MOVIE FOR?! WHY ARE IMAGINARY FRIENDS SUCH ASSHOLES? Why is Carrie Fisher so chill about this enormous tragedy that happens!? What's Phoebe Cates arc supposed to be?!
    All this and more!

    #273 Little Monsters (1989)

    #273 Little Monsters (1989)

    Boy oh boy, how on earth did I watch this SO much as a kid?
    It's a truly wretched Howie Mandel feature, Little Monsters! Why are the monsters so scary? Why is the underworld lit through 3D glasses? How bad are the Savage bros?
    All this and more!

    The conclusion of the not-sweaty-at-all Andrew Programs the Show in the Month of April: APTSITMOA!

    #271Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead

    It’s the not-sweaty-at-all Andrew Programs the Show in the Month of April: APTSITMOA!
    We're watching a '90s movie about to be remade: Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead! No, not Tyra Banks and Nicole Ritchie, it's Christina Applegate and scream queen Danielle Harris!
    What are the rules of this movie? How is she not getting caught? What's up with her brother's flip flopping? Is this the best gravestone gag of all time?
    All this and more!

    #270 Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker

    It's the not-sweaty-at-all Andrew Programs the Show in the Month of April: APTSITMOA!
    We're starting with an underseen slasher in Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker.
    Is hiring Jan De Bont for one scene the greatest idea for production value ever conceived? How buckwild is this performance from Susan Tyrell?! All this and more!

    #269 Captain Ron

    #269 Captain Ron

    Russel-Mania 2: Oops no Carpenters ends with Captain Ron, a weird boating movie new to both of us!
     
    Would this be better with Kurt as the Family Man role? Why isn't this just Summer Rental? Did Kurt forget he wasn't playing Snake Plissken? (Does Plissken have two consecutive Ss because his first name is snake?) All this and more!
