    Dark City (1998)

    Dark City (1998)

    Big D returns from a booze cruise just in time to tackle a 1998 sci-fi sleeper that explores the nature of individuality, the impact of memories and the allure of Jennifer Connelly's mustache. Pack your bags for "Dark City!"
    In this episode, Gene laments the movie's opening spoiler, and Ash ties together the look and feel of pretty much every '90s goth-industrial-hacker-vampire film while drooling over Rufus Sewell. Meanwhile, Big D takes a shot at Kiefer Sutherland, and everyone agrees "Dark City" has some badass set design.
    Is there a difference between time travel and the mastery of telekinesis? Are Riff Raff and Mr. Hand the same person? Why wasn't this movie 10 minutes long? We raise these questions and more on behalf of longtime listener and author Ryan C.

    Reservoir Dogs (1992)

    Reservoir Dogs (1992)

    “Reservoir Dogs” isn’t the kind of movie a rookie podcaster should touch. It’s an icon of the ‘90s, the debut of a game-changing director, perhaps even the birth of a new genre. So we waited, and we learned, and we put nearly 300 movies in the toilet before accepting the challenge laid out by listener Jody G: Question whether the 1992 heist flick holds up after 30 years.
    Anyone who’s seen “Reservoir Dogs” remembers the nonlinear storytelling, the violence, the snappy dialogue, and the shots that would end up as T-shirts, coffee mugs, car decals. But you almost never hear movie fans talking about Tim Roth’s horrible accent, the long run time or the logical flaws.
    In this episode, the Shat Crew discusses how Mr. Blonde inspires Gene to be better in the office, why Big D loves the “Reservoir Dogs” soundtrack, and how Quentin Tarantino saved money while blowing Ash’s mind.

    Defending Your Life (1991)

    Defending Your Life (1991)

    When a listener dedicates a podcast commission to his late wife, you treat it with respect. When the movie is about death and the afterlife, you add a degree of reverence. When one of your podcast hosts is dealing with a recent loss, you take the whole thing personally. And when Albert Brooks is the romantic lead, you have to throw all of that out the window.
    "Defending You Life" is a 1991 romantic comedy destined for a good shatting, and it treated the Shat Crew to some lively discussion of past lives, simpler times, biggest fears, and crimes against Meryl Streep. The podcast also took us to places we never imagined we'd go: highlighting the difference between Albert Brooks and Larry David, worshipping Rip Torn and earnestly drawing parallels between purgatory's legal proceedings and Franz Kafka.

    Smokey and The Bandit (1977)

    Smokey and The Bandit (1977)

    Shat The Movies has brought us so many dynamic pairings: Riggs and Murtaugh, Goose and Maverick, Dick Ebert and Gene Lyons. It's only fair that we reach back to 1977 for the quickest duo to deliver Coors beer from Texarkana to Atlanta: Snowman and The Bandit.
    "Smokey and The Bandit" triggered an explosion in trucker romanticism, CB radio fetishism and Pontiac Firebird Trans Am sales. Stuntman Hal Needham's directorial debut also gave audiences a fresh look at Jackie Gleason and convinced America (but not Gene) that Sally Field could be hot. 
    It had everything you could ask for in a bootlegger movie: Jerry Reed songs that literally tell you what's happening on screen, '70s style, sexy cars, Burt Reynolds and inexplicable pit stops. But does "Smokey and The Bandit" hold up as a comedy with a pinch of romance? You might be surprised.

    The Devil's Advocate (1997)

    The Devil's Advocate (1997)

    Each Shat The Movies host brought unique insights to shed light on 1997's "The Devil's Advocate." Dick gifted us with his knowledge of Gainesville, Fla. Gene examined the justice system. And Ash explained scripture and social pressure. 
    And then the conversation quickly devolved into rants about Keanu Reeves' excessive kissing, body hair, Al Pacino's sex appeal, how the Antichrist works, incest, weird boobs, Southern accents and parental controls.
    Big thanks to Andy in Norway for commissioning this supernatural horror that proves sometimes a quiet ending is the best ending.

    Christine (1983)

    Christine (1983)

    We've seen what happens when Stephen King's novels are turned into TV miniseries. We've seen what happens when they're directed by nobodies. Now "Christine" is gonna show the Shat Crew how John Carpenter gets down.
    Listener Matt the Shat (UK) commissioned this 1983 horror adaptation that had Big D and Gene drooling over car porn and Ash confessing she drives Honda Pilot.
    The hosts were split on whether Arnie was cool or cringe, and Gene was confused about some of the schemes and injuries. Meanwhile, the movie's chief bully, Buddy Repperton, had us debating who would win Buddy Bowl. Ash just wanted to know why Christine was alive in the first place.

Enjoying this trip down memory lane

Discovered this podcast several months ago and have really been enjoying this trip down memory lane. Working my way through all the episodes and only have 30 left. Can’t describe how much this podcast has meant to me. Bringing back a lot of great memories. Keep up the good work.

Used to be my favorite

I loved it for a long time.... and then Rog left and Ashley became a regular. She doesn’t have the fun Rog had, and it’s become too politically correct. I get it, a lot of these movies have issues that couldn’t be made today, but there’s little mention of the time when the movies were made. Plus, Ashley seems to only notice “strong female characters” and picks movies she likes based on personal experiences instead of anything objective (case in point: Grease 2) EDIT: it just keeps getting worse.... the show is a shell of what it once was. Try listening to “Hey Do You Remember...” instead. Same general concept, but better chemistry with the hosts (been the same three people for seven years, so less drama). Plus they can laugh about the movie plots and jokes instead of trying to become socially conscious and woke; in fact, they make a point not to be that way. We get it: these movies were made in a different time, they certainly couldn’t get away with some of the humor today, but so what? Acknowledge that and laugh about it and move on. Plus, I’m starting to think Gene and Ashley hate anyone who falls on a different side politically from them. The podcast never used to be about that, but it’s just got that vibe now. Big D is the only one trying to keep it fun
