Robot Jox (1990)
"Robot Jox" In the distant future, mankind has forsaken global wars for battles of single combat. The world has been divided into two opposing super powers, with each side represented by trained champions. Their weapons are huge robotic machines, capable of battle on land, sea and in the air.
If Looks Could Kill (1991)
"If Looks Could Kill" Before he can graduate, cocky high school student Michael Corben (Richard Grieco) travels to France on a school trip to earn a missing French credit. But when a British intelligence agent mistakes Michael for a spy of the same name, they assign him to capture the evil Augustus Steranko (Roger Rees), using a plethora of espionage gadgetry. Michael has the time of his life -- until he crosses paths with two assassins (Tom Rack, Carole Davis) who want him dead.
The Seventh Sign (1988)
"The Seventh Sign" Prior to his death on the crucifix, Jesus Christ (Jürgen Prochnow) was offered a drink of water, a kind act turned away by a Roman soldier. These events play a profound role in occurrences during modern times, which some construe as signs of Christ's return and the apocalypse. While Abby Quinn (Demi Moore) believes the end is coming and that her unborn child may be in danger as a result, Father Lucci (Peter Friedman), a Vatican agent, is doubtful no matter what evidence she presents.
"Platoon" Based on Oliver Stone's experience from the war, "Platoon" follows a U.S. Army volunteer (Charlie Sheen) serving in Vietnam while his Platoon Sergeant and his Squad Leader (Tom Berenger and Willem Dafoe) argue over the morality in the platoon and the conduct of the war.
The Great Outdoors (1988)
"The Great Outdoors" It's vacation time for outdoorsy Chicago man Chet Ripley (John Candy), along with his wife, Connie (Stephanie Faracy), and their two kids, Buck (Chris Young) and Ben (Ian Giatti). But a serene weekend of fishing at a Wisconsin lakeside cabin gets crashed by Connie's obnoxious brother-in-law, Roman Craig (Dan Aykroyd), his wife, Kate (Annette Bening), and the couple's two daughters. As the excursion wears on, the Ripleys find themselves at odds with the stuffy Craig family.
Back to the Future Part III (1990)
"Back to the Future Part III" Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) obtains a 70-year-old message from the time-traveling Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd), in which he informs Marty that he has retired to a small town in the Old West. Marty then finds out that the Doc was murdered shortly after sending the letter. In order to save his friend, Marty will have to travel back in time, disentangle a lovestruck Doc from a local schoolmarm, and repair the DeLorean -- all while avoiding a posse of gunslingers.
A great discover during lockdown!!
I happened across this podcast while I was looking for new horror podcasts to listen to as I “completed” all my favourites during lockdown. I love it!! It’s such an interesting retrospective on the old classics I know and has also introduced me to some gems. I was so happy to see Grease 2 covered as it’s a favourite of mine, my sister and niece. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys movies from the 80s and 90s.
Incredible! Can’t stop listening
Never been able to get into podcasts, last ditch attempts I thought I’d try this one and I was absolutely hooked! Been listening for a while and love it with my whole heart-the hosts are hilarious and never fail to make me laugh, they always do some incredible research on the movie they are reviewing and I’ve learnt something new about each movie. Please keep up the good work!! :)))
Absolutely love this podcast really great information and stories behind the films. Always makes me laugh. Keep up the great work
