    "Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?"  

    This week on 80's Adventure the boys visit Gotham City in 1989 to seek out the legend that is known as... Batman.  One of the first "dark" takes on a superhero film and arguably a blueprint for how the Dark Knight is portrayed even today.

    "Jesus! It looks like a frozen sausage!" 

    This week the boys take a visit to Yorkshire as they have a look at their first British film since the Podcast started!  Neither of them have seen the film in a long time, so how does this film look now with 2021 eyes? 

    Have you seen this British film from arguably the best decade of all time?  Also if you want to be the question setter one week then email podcast@80sadventure.com. 

    Cheersy!

    "Listen, and understand! That Terminator is out there! It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop... ever, until you are dead!"  

    This week the boys continue their 80's Adventure with 1984's The Terminator.  This episode is as relentless as the Terminator in question as the boys indulge in celebratory drinks for episode 50. 

    Join them as they delve deeper into this classic from esteemed director James Cameron and without a doubt.... They'll be back!

    "Gary?... By the way, why are we wearing bras on our heads?"  

    This week on 80's Adventure the boys revisit a film they both liked growing up but they are in for a rude awakening upon revisiting this John Hughes film.  What didn't age well and could it be fixed?

Pure brilliance

This is by an absolute country mile THE best podcast right now.
If you don’t like fun, if you don’t like movies and if you don’t like taking a trip down memory lane to the 80’s then your probably flatlining.
Cheersee

A real nostalgia trip

I LOVE this podcast. As a child of the eighties, this is a real trip down memory lane, revisiting some of my favourite films I grew up with. The two presenters are knowledgeable and funny. They’re obviously two mates on their own nostalgia trip, inviting you along with them. Can we have a Robocop episode please?!

A tonic for the podcast soul

This is not just any old podcast where two millennials get drunk and talk junk. Oh no, this is pure entertainment. Darn hilarious in a non-offensive way, whilst delivering well-thought out film facts, trivia and opinions through the “2020 eyes” of two people who lived it originally. I especially like the bit where Darren gets considerably more slury as the episodes progress (Is Matt immune to alcohol?), the synopsis challenge and the quiz at the end. I love this podcast so much I considered buying men’s pants just to support them (every cis woman needs men’s pants right?). Thank goodness for Patreon. CHEERSY!!
