195 episodes

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!).

    Cannon-uary continues with the "good" Cannon movie: Runaway Train!
    What's Eric Roberts whole deal in this? Does Tripp make more than one Soul Asylum reference? What's up with Jon Voight's character? Why is the warden SO ANGRY? Plus, we do all our Jon Voight impressions as him from Anaconda!

    #176 Cobra

    It's the triumphant return of Cannon-uary, with Sylvester Stallone's bizarro-world version of Beverly Hills Cop: Cobra!
    What's with Chekov's matchstick? Why is there almost no plot whatsoever? Who cut this down to 80-some minutes? Plus, gratuitous violence, dummy deaths, and all sorts of nonsense.

    #174 Santa Claus: The Movie

     Merry Christmas, gang!
    We're tackling a truly odd duck of a movie: Santa Claus: The Movie!
    Why is John Lithgow wearing these enormous teeth? Why does this movie spend 50 minutes doing Santa's life story with absolutely, positively no conflict whatsoever? What's going on with the workshop? Why are all these children flying!?

    #173 Clue

    #173 Clue

    It's the best board game adaptation ever: Clue!
    It's a miracle this movie is fun, Tim Curry is a treasure, Andrew loves Madeline Kahn, so much twisting and turning, Tripp talks too much about Knives Out and Battleship and many fun weapons abound!

Gone woke.

Used to enjoy this podcast until they started talking woke rubbish. I’m not interested in far left politics or marxism. Stick to movie reviews.
