    Rewatching & Recasting Top Gun Part 1

    Rewatching & Recasting Top Gun Part 1

    On May 16, 1986 the a movie was released that forever changed the Navy, fighter pilots, and volleyball. Names like Don Simpson, Jerry Bruckheimer, Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, and Kenny Loggins, were forever cemented into the foundation of 80s film. The purpose of this movie was to teach the lost art of awesomeness and insure that a handful movie watchers who saw the film had the the best experience possible.
    They succeeded.
    Today, people call it a classic. But the fans call it:
    TOP GUN
    Today on Buzzn The Tower, which in no way is legally affiliated with Top Gun and whose name and likeness is in no way a copyright violation as it is a parody of the original, we will be rewatching and recasting Top Gun. Scene by scene we'll make our case for the TOP GUN plaque, occasionally stopping to recast the main roles with other actors and actresses from the 1980s
    I'm Mo Shapiro, and joining me as always Slider to my Maverick, Max Sanders and with that…

    80s Movie Dogs

    80s Movie Dogs

    Before Marley and Me, Homeward Bound, Beethoven, and Air Bud, there was an explosion of films starring man's best friend. And even when our favorite ruffers weren't headlining the kiosk, they often stole the show. Let us not forget if not for the brave sacrifice of a sheepdog mutt named Einstein, Marty would have never time traveled. And Jaws may have scared us from swimming, but a St. Bernard named Cujo made dry land just as scary. The 80s gave us memorable puppy performances. Today on Buzzn The tower, we'll talk about our favorite 80s movie dogs, because if there's one things we love more than the 80s, it's fluffy puppers! I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Fox to my Hound, Max Sanders and with that...

    Building The Perfect 80s Police Force

    Building The Perfect 80s Police Force

    Whether your prime directives are to serve the public trust or protect the innocent...dead or alive you're coming with me! Police not only play a pivotal role in keeping the peace and protecting the innocent, they also are the backbone of a whole lotta 80s movies. So with that in mind, what if we took the best cops from the best 80s movies and made the best police force around? Today on Buzzn The Tower we'll do exactly that. Piece by piece we'll construct a police force that Commandant Lassard would be proud to see. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always, the Nordberg to my Frank Drebin, Max Sanders. And with that...

    Building The Perfect 80s Movie Mom

    Building The Perfect 80s Movie Mom

    What do Carol Brady and Cersei Lannister have in common? A thirst for blood? No. They would do anything for their children. A mother's love is as strong as the Force, as dangerous as crossing the streams, and as mystical as Gwildor's Cosmic Key. All generations have paid homage to the matriarch in film and television. But the 80s, well they did it with style! Today on Buzzn The Tower we will build the perfect 80s movie mom, borrowing from our favorite big screen mothers. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the man who will keep me from crying for the next sixty minutes, Max Sanders. And with that, Happy Mother's Day!

    80s Movie Fantasy Draft

    80s Movie Fantasy Draft

    As a lifelong Detroit Lions fan I can tell you two things are absolutely true. One, this is our year. Two, next year is our year. But regardless of the historic success your franchise has (or lack thereof) there is always one time a year where a Super Bowl feels within reach and that my friends is the NFL draft! So with that in mind, Buzzn The Tower has decided to honor the occasion by holding an 80s Movie Fantasy Draft. The as always is to win. There will be rules, strategy, questionable decisions, and in the end two lineups going head to head as the best collection of 80s movies ever drafted. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Mel Kiper to my Todd McShay, Max Sanders. And with that, you're on the clock.

    Labyrinth

    Labyrinth

    Directed by Jim Henson, executive produced by George Lucas, starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly. Yet despite that lineup, a total commercial flop that broke the heart of it's creator. Labyrinth is the dictionary definition of a cult classic and luckily Jim Henson lived long enough to see how much people truly loved his dark fairytale. Today on Buzzn The Tower, we'll make our way through the Labyrinth to the castle beyond the Goblin City.
    It doesn't look that far..
    It's further than you think...time is short
    I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Hoggle to my Sarah, Max Sanders. And with that, set the clock to thirteen hours and let's get after it!
