    National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989)

    National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989)

    Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. A family reunion over the holidays leads to a s*****r being full. 
    Easily the best in the series, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation has heart along with the extreme gags. There are some references to the first film, the kids are different as always, and it has smaller stakes. Aside from driving and sledding, most of this movie takes place at the Griswold home.

    Psycho III (1986)

    Psycho III (1986)

    Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Psycho III. Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) is let out of an insane asylum for good behavior, but can he return to normalcy without wanting to kill Bates Motel tenants again?Although many critics labeled Psycho 3 as too camp, its giallo influenced lighting and more grisly murders make this the most violent film in the series. Anthony Perkins makes his feature directing debut with Psycho III and nails it on the acting and visual levels. Less cluttered with plot twists than Psycho II, Psycho III is a more typical slasher sequel with some nice moments.

    Psycho II (1983)

    Psycho II (1983)

    Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Psycho 2. Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) is let out of an insane asylum for good behavior, but can he return to normalcy without wanting to kill Bates Motel tenants again?An intellectual kind of sequel, Psycho II leans heavily on psychology and character dynamics. By the time we get to the end, there are a few too many plot twists. Perkins is excellent here as is a young Meg Tilly and a middle-aged Dennis Franz.

    The Dark Crystal (1983)

    The Dark Crystal (1983)

    Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Sierra's Hi-Res Adventure #6, The Dark Crystal. 
    Based on the original feature film directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz, game designer Roberta Williams designed a game that sticks closely to the movie. While it's easier to play than earlier Hi-Res Adventures, it's also missing a big scope and, well, a sense of adventure. A recent abridged remake of the game was created to loosely tie in with the The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance prequel Netflix series which only lasted a season. :(

    Rocky V Workprint Cut (GUEST: Mike Kunda Star of The Pretender and Author of Cue The Rocky Music)

    Rocky V Workprint Cut (GUEST: Mike Kunda Star of The Pretender and Author of Cue The Rocky Music)

    Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, Alex Miller and special guest Mike Kunda (star of The Pretender, author of Cue The Rocky Music: A Memoir, and founder and guide for the Yo, Philly! Rocky Film Tour) discuss the rare Rocky V Workprint Cut. They also dive into how his life led him to be a Rocky impersonator so great that a documentary (The Pretender) was made after him! 
    Although the Rocky V Workprint Cut is in rough shape from what is likely a VHS master copy, it tends to have better acting and more character development than the theatrical cut. Rocky's protégé turned rival Tommy "The Machine" Gunn gets a few more moments to shine, and their fight at the end is a bit snappier. We also get more focus on Rocky's trauma from his brain injury. It's worth seeking out!

    National Lampoon's European Vacation (1985)

    National Lampoon's European Vacation (1985)

    Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss National Lampoon's European Vacation. A family goes to Europe and causes mayhem. 
    A bit less dark than the first entry, National Lampoon's European Vacation has a bigger scope but fewer laughs. Despite her comic chops (Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Johnny Dangerously), director Amy Heckerling does a bit of whiff here. Not awful, but not great either.
