    Reservoir Dogs (1992)

    Reservoir Dogs (1992)

    “Reservoir Dogs” isn’t the kind of movie a rookie podcaster should touch. It’s an icon of the ‘90s, the debut of a game-changing director, perhaps even the birth of a new genre. So we waited, and we learned, and we put nearly 300 movies in the toilet before accepting the challenge laid out by listener Jody G: Question whether the 1992 heist flick holds up after 30 years.
    Anyone who’s seen “Reservoir Dogs” remembers the nonlinear storytelling, the violence, the snappy dialogue, and the shots that would end up as T-shirts, coffee mugs, car decals. But you almost never hear movie fans talking about Tim Roth’s horrible accent, the long run time or the logical flaws.
    In this episode, the Shat Crew discusses how Mr. Blonde inspires Gene to be better in the office, why Big D loves the “Reservoir Dogs” soundtrack, and how Quentin Tarantino saved money while blowing Ash’s mind.

    Defending Your Life (1991)

    Defending Your Life (1991)

    When a listener dedicates a podcast commission to his late wife, you treat it with respect. When the movie is about death and the afterlife, you add a degree of reverence. When one of your podcast hosts is dealing with a recent loss, you take the whole thing personally. And when Albert Brooks is the romantic lead, you have to throw all of that out the window.
    "Defending You Life" is a 1991 romantic comedy destined for a good shatting, and it treated the Shat Crew to some lively discussion of past lives, simpler times, biggest fears, and crimes against Meryl Streep. The podcast also took us to places we never imagined we'd go: highlighting the difference between Albert Brooks and Larry David, worshipping Rip Torn and earnestly drawing parallels between purgatory's legal proceedings and Franz Kafka.

    Smokey and The Bandit (1977)

    Smokey and The Bandit (1977)

    Shat The Movies has brought us so many dynamic pairings: Riggs and Murtaugh, Goose and Maverick, Dick Ebert and Gene Lyons. It's only fair that we reach back to 1977 for the quickest duo to deliver Coors beer from Texarkana to Atlanta: Snowman and The Bandit.
    "Smokey and The Bandit" triggered an explosion in trucker romanticism, CB radio fetishism and Pontiac Firebird Trans Am sales. Stuntman Hal Needham's directorial debut also gave audiences a fresh look at Jackie Gleason and convinced America (but not Gene) that Sally Field could be hot. 
    It had everything you could ask for in a bootlegger movie: Jerry Reed songs that literally tell you what's happening on screen, '70s style, sexy cars, Burt Reynolds and inexplicable pit stops. But does "Smokey and The Bandit" hold up as a comedy with a pinch of romance? You might be surprised.

    The Devil's Advocate (1997)

    The Devil's Advocate (1997)

    Each Shat The Movies host brought unique insights to shed light on 1997's "The Devil's Advocate." Dick gifted us with his knowledge of Gainesville, Fla. Gene examined the justice system. And Ash explained scripture and social pressure. 
    And then the conversation quickly devolved into rants about Keanu Reeves' excessive kissing, body hair, Al Pacino's sex appeal, how the Antichrist works, incest, weird boobs, Southern accents and parental controls.
    Big thanks to Andy in Norway for commissioning this supernatural horror that proves sometimes a quiet ending is the best ending.

    Christine (1983)

    Christine (1983)

    We've seen what happens when Stephen King's novels are turned into TV miniseries. We've seen what happens when they're directed by nobodies. Now "Christine" is gonna show the Shat Crew how John Carpenter gets down.
    Listener Matt the Shat (UK) commissioned this 1983 horror adaptation that had Big D and Gene drooling over car porn and Ash confessing she drives Honda Pilot.
    The hosts were split on whether Arnie was cool or cringe, and Gene was confused about some of the schemes and injuries. Meanwhile, the movie's chief bully, Buddy Repperton, had us debating who would win Buddy Bowl. Ash just wanted to know why Christine was alive in the first place.

    The Truman Show (1998)

    The Truman Show (1998)

    All-star commissioner Bralen D. adds to Shat The Movies' Jim Carrey catalog with the 1998 film that spanned a half dozen genres and lent its name to a psychiatric disease: "The Truman Show."
    Reality TV expert Dick Ebert leads the Shat Crew through a tangle of topics, including: Jedi healing abilities, being watched 24/7, James and the Giant Cock, Night Owl security systems, M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village," springtime anal and HBO's "Westworld."
    To wrap things up, Jim Carrey fans call in about "Liar Liar," and Ash receives a dick vid from a listener.

ButtPeaner ,

This show needs more love

A great show that looks back on films from the 80's and 90's and whether or not they hold up for modern viewers. Shame that a lot of the other reviews are from trolls that can't stand the fact that some of the stuff they grew up on would be considered offensive or inappropriate today. Hopefully this podcast gets more fans than it currently has.

Can be good

It’s enjoyable to hear the hosts opinions on the films reviewed in the podcast. However, it is kinda gross hearing 2 men constantly comment on and criticize womens looks (I mean if you’re gonna add your 3 cents at least be funny). Ashley is a breath of fresh air and very much needed to balance the sexism.

Rrrrwoof woof ,

Great podcast

Always worth the listen. Their episode on Caddyshack was fantastic and what got me into the show!
