    Blue Thunder (1983)

    Blue Thunder (1983)

    Before there was "Airwolf," before there was "Fire Birds," one movie stood alone as the epitome of helicopter action: "Blue Thunder." It's the movie that inspired Big D to be a pilot, showed us how to "dust" a perp, and made JAFO a household name.
    It also taught a 10-year-old in the UK how to cuss. And that 10-year-old grew up to be Shat The Movies commissioner Omar, who somehow understood "Blue Thunder" was about the surveillance state and police militarization. We just thought it was about naked high-rise yoga.
    Starring three legitimate badasses—Roy Scheider, Warren Oates and Malcolm McDowell—"Blue Thunder" illustrated what happens when combat veterans and single moms don't reach out for help, why it's weird to sexualize machines, how to dodge a missile in a crowded urban area and why looping a helicopter isn't all that useful.
    Warning: Do not watch this movie while sitting between co-workers on a Southwest Airlines flight. Or, if you do, make sure your tray table is covering your lap.

    Natural Born Killers (1994)

    Natural Born Killers (1994)

    Can a movie that scandalized America in 1994 continue to shock us today? Not really, but Oliver Stone's "Natural Born Killers" still has a lot going for it: a perfectly composed cast, a kickass soundtrack and incredible chemistry between Juliette Lewis and Woody Harrelson. 
    With Quentin Tarantino's fingerprints all over it, "Natural Born Killers" spans everything from sensationalized murders to sweat lodges and somehow manages to effortlessly serve up a love story in the mix. 
    In this episode, the Shat Crew explores the movie's haphazard use of black-and-white shots that look like they came from a rowboat, why Blockbuster Video employees hated Oliver Stone, Dick Ebert's rules for mushrooms, how artists change when they're clean and why all bald men should shave their heads.

    Romper Stomper (1992)

    Romper Stomper (1992)

    Gene's comment that he didn't "enjoy Australian cinema" triggered quite a few rebuttals in the form of Shat The Movies commissions. And neo-Nazi drama "Romper Stomper" just might be the one that changed his mind. 
    Before there was 2000's "Gladiator" or 2012's "Les Miserables," a young Russell Crowe was looking mighty fine while sporting tighty whities, engaging in some ultraviolence, and throwing in a little surprise doggystyle. But make no mistake, "Romper Stomper" was a serious film that straddled the line between zombie movie and "American History X." And it made some points that are incredibly relevant today.
    In this episode, the Shat Crew discusses odd editing choices, racist stereotypes, the history of Footscray and the tragic tale of Crowe's co-star Daniel Pollock.

    Arthur (1981)

    Arthur (1981)

    Shat on TV listeners begging us to cover "House of The Dragon" finally get their wish in this week's Shat The Movies feature: "Arthur." This episode commissioned by David K. also explores what to wear shoplifting and features tons of listener mail.
    Dudley Moore and John Gielgud aren't household names in America, but the two English legends created an 1981 comedy alongside the goddess Liza Minnelli that distilled the essence of New York.
    "Arthur" led the Shat Crew to conversations about Christopher Cross' theme song for the movie, being stage drunk, surprise tears, unnecessary cruelty, Russell Brand, the pressure of growing up wealthy and how Scotch led to the prevalence of roosters in '90s New Orleans kitchens.

    Blue Velvet (1986)

    Blue Velvet (1986)

    Few directors have polarized the Shat Crew's wipe scores the way David Lynch has, and few David Lynch movies are as polarizing as "Blue Velvet." With odd peccadillos, unsettling violence, over-the-top symbolism and entrancing dreamlike sequences, this 1986 had Ash gushing and the boys cringing. 
    But talk about a career-builder! "Blue Velvet" changed the way moviegoers saw Isabella Rossellini, Dennis Hopper, Laura Dern and Kyle MacLachlan. It gave us a more straightforward Lynch tale, and it recalibrated the Shat The Movies definition of surprise boobs.
    Whether you view it as a masterful depiction of primal human behavior hidden behind a suburban veneer or just a really weird movie with some of the worst dirty talk ever filmed, "Blue Velvet" is definitely one to watch ... but maybe not rewatch.

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

    "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" is, without a doubt, a Halloween movie. It's got blood, gore, murders, a creepy castle — what more do you want? And the best way to see it is in a crowd, so Big D flew 5,000 miles to experience his first viewing in a theater with props, a shadow cast and Gene Lyons.
    In this Shat The Movies Halloween Spooktacular commissioned by listener Jeremy, Ash joins Dick and Gene to discuss whether the "Time Warp" deserves to be the film's most famous song, whether Dr. Frank N. Furter is hot or dangerous and whether film reviewers should consider audience participation when rating a movie.
    The Shat crew also drools over young Susan Sarandon, discovers changes in Big D and retells the story of how this cult classic nearly was a flop.

Danny Deck ,

Excellent podcast except…..

“I wrote my master’s thesis, not my doctoral dissertation, but my master’s thesis…” I never miss an episode but Ashley…get the f over yourself. Incredibly condescending . Insufferable
Like Gene and Love Big D. Smart insightful criticism. No room for Ashley to let us all know what we couldn’t possibly understand

katie9131 ,

Need a new third

Do you ever find yourself asking “ why don’t they make pod casts like they used to?”

Once was my favorite now I don’t finish most episodes. Please bring back one of the other hosts. Preferably Rog.

boobie smith ,

Not as good

Overall not as fun with Ash. I literally roll my eyes every time she speaks. You can tell Gene and Big D do too. The show went from a zero wipe to a three wipe since Rodger left. This is a pretty universal opinion… we know you read the reviews! Can we replace ash with king bee or Keri? Or just bring back Rog!
