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!).

    #145 Tuff Turf

    We're kicking off 2020 with a weird little movie turning 35: Tuff Turf!
    Baby James Spader is doing a not-so-great James Dean to woo future Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards away from her EXTREMELY abusive boyfriend with the help of a baby Robert Downey, Jr.! Andrew reveals WAY too much knowledge about the Real Housewives canon, we don't know enough about California, a very strange reality, paintball guns and Errol Flynn $hit.

    #142 Christmas Vacation

    You serious, Dissecting the 80s?
    We are! And we're taking on Christmas Vacation for our annual holiday episode. Where does this rank amongst the Vacation films? Are there too many animal sequences in this movie? Juliette Lewis is fantastic, Randy Quaid is a gem, and this movie is awesome!

    #141 Tango & Cash

    #141 Tango & Cash

    We're kicking off December with a super fun buddy cop movie turning 30 this year: Tango & Cash!
    Did Tripp finally learn an impression? (Yes) Does he do it too much? (Also, yes). Andrew confuses Kurt Russell and Patrick Swayze for an entire movie, so Tripp is concerned for his health. Stallone continues to mumble his way through everything, but in nicer clothes! So many explosions. So many character actors.
