    385. Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)

    385. Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)

    We don’t need to wait for the translation to talk about this movie! Jay and Nate review Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991).

    Aiming to send the original crew out with a high note, Paramount turned to people who had delivered some of the biggest and best so far. With a dense plot, a limited budget, and a focused crew, the final adventure of the Enterprise heroes had a lot riding on the premise. How well does it deliver? Find out in our latest review!

    We still care about movies! Jay and Anthony from ’Tis the Podcast review Scream VI (2023).

    After the smash requel reset the franchise with new characters, directors Radio Silence moved this entry to the Big Apple for a change of scenery while still incorporating some standard Ghostface tropes mixed with modern sensibilities and issues. Despite of knowing this is the end of the line for these characters, does Scream VI still deliver the chills and thrills or is it a pale imitation of a once-great franchise. Listen as Jay and Anthony discuss!

    383. Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989)

    383. Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989)

    Row, row, row your starship. Jay and Nate review Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. 

    Inspired by a late-night viewing of televangelists and wanting to boldly go in a different direction, William Shatner’s concept for the fifth Star Trek movie was ambitious - too ambitious for the studio and faced budget cuts, outsourced effects, and a general sense of apathy from those involved. However, the cast all talk about what a good time they had making this entry. So is it worthy of re-evaluation after missing audiences in release? Or is this a frontier best left unexplored. Find out in our latest episode of the Star Trek Retrospective Series.

    382. Blue Thunder (1983)

    Catch us now and later! Jay and Lindsey review Blue Thunder (1983). 

    1980s cinema became a fertile ground for the Cold War techno-thilller and Director John Badham had two in 1983 with WarGames and Blue Thunder. Star Roy Scheider and Badham both felt strongly that the dangers of the constant surveillance state as well as military-grade armament of the police were not to be taken lightly. Does this movie make it’s point or flutter into the dust? Find out as Jay and Lindsey review Blue Thunder (1983).

    381. Rambo (2008)

    381. Rambo (2008)

    The legacy sequel we didn't know we needed. Jay and guests Matt from Film Feast, Andy from Imperial Scum, and Carmelita Valdez McCoy track through the jungles of Rambo (2008).

    It was 20 years since Rambo had any presence on the big screen. Stallone had a career resurgence with Rocky Balboa. He returned to his other franchise in attempt to Mary the psychological aspects of First Blood with the fun action tropes of parts 2 and 3. How well did it work? Listen as Jay welcome guests Matt Bledsoe, Andy Gorham, and Carmelita Valdez-McKoy for this review.

    380. Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986)

    We will try to make the best guess we can. Jay and Nate review Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986). Part of the ongoing Star Trek Retrospective Series. 



    After the successes of parts 2 and 3, another entry was inevitable. But the creators - and many of the cast members - felt like they needed to lean more into comedy after the stark action and drama of the series so far. Did the gamble to combine chuckles with a time-travel, fish-out-of-water story work? Find out on the latest installment in our Star Trek retrospective series.

Excellent

Stumbled upon this podcast series during lockdown and have been captivated ever since. Really enjoyable, informative and I’m always interested to hear different points of view. Particularly liked The Shining episode...could you talk about Doctor Sleep at some point please? I’d be fascinated to know your thoughts.

Hey guys,
Love your show. Been listening for a year now. Keep it up, really appreciate your style. How about a Big Lebowski, Eyes Wide Shut or Hateful Eight episode?
Thanks - Steve
