Mo and Max are 80s cinema nerds. They are on a quest to rank, debate, and offer fresh takes on the best of the best from the only decade that matters. From Arnold to Zoltar, they cover it all. That answer your question?
Buzzn The Tower
Two worlds collide, rival nations. It's a primitive clash venting years of frustrations. Bravely we hope, against all hope, there's so much at stake, seems our freedom's up against the ropes. Does the crowd understand, it it East vs. West? Or man against man? Can any nation stand alone? In 1985 Rocky Balboa ended the Cold War. Our friends over at The Nostalgia Test Podcast invited Buzzn The Tower to sit down and talk about this pivotal moment in world history. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the SICO Robot to my ungrateful Uncle Paulie, Max Sanders. And with that let's join Dan and Manny from The Nostalgia Test Podcast!
One Crazy Summer
You may have heard, but Buzzn The Tower is more than just a podcast. As 80s film historians we have a moral obligation to educate our friends, our enemies and our communities. Today we evoke our civic duties as we talk about a hidden gem called One Crazy Summer. By the time this episode is over, you’ll understand why this movie is a summer classic. I’m Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Clay Stork to my Egg Stork, Max Sanders. And with that, OH YA THANK YOU I WILL HAVE SOME COOKIES!!!
Remembering Richard Donner
On July 5th, 2021 the world lost an entertainment icon. At the age of 91, Richard Donner left a legacy very few will ever come close to even touching. You cannot talk about the 80s without mentioning his work and his impact on cinema. ClarK Kent, One-Eyed Willy, Murtaugh and Riggs and a hawk that was a lady, all owe a debt of gratitude to one of Hollywood's greatest directors. On today's episode of Buzzn The Tower we'll look back at the films Donner made during the 1980s and talk about a man who's talent was only rivaled by his kindness. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always, the Chunk to my Mikey, Max Sanders. And with that... "Our parents they wanted the bestest stuff for us, but they got to do what's best for them, cuz it's their time, their time up there. Down here it's our time, it's our time down here! That's all over the second we ride up Troy's bucket."
Epic 80s Movie Scores
The very first episode of Buzzn The Tower was called Radical 80s Movie Jams. We covered everything from Kenny Loggins Danger Zone to Ray Parker Jr's Ghostbusters. Today we head back to the realm of music with our eyes and ears on some of the most epic theatrical scores ever composed. These works of art create suspense, evoke emotions and sometimes are as popular as the movies themselves. So sit back, grab a glass of wine and enjoy a MOST… sophisticated journey to the classical music of the 80s. I’m Mo Shapiro and joining me as always, the cello playing Dana Barrett to my Vigo the Carpathian, Max Sanders. And with that, let’s get classy.
Recasting The Karate Kid
Sand the floor. Paint the fence. Get a bodybag and get ready for the All-Valley Karate Tournament, because today we're taking one of the best movies around and replacing the beloved characters with other stars from the 80s. We'll have to make tough decisions and commit to our choices. Win, lose, no matter. You make good fight, earn respect then nobody bother. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always, the Daniel-san to my Mr. Miyagi, Max Sanders. And with that, let's recast The Karate Kid!
The 80s Collector Part 2 With Graham Elliot
In Part 1 Buzzn The Tower started building its fantasy collectors museum. From Lloyd Dobler's boombox to Axel Foley's jacket our collection had a strong start. Today we pick up where we left off, we'll continue to fill our airplane hanger with 80s movie memorabilia that would make Spielberg himself jealous. But this time we have a little help... I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me for the first time, the Swedish Chef to my Hurdy Gurdy Gurdy, Graham Elliot. And with that let's build our collection!
such an amazing podcast. i’ve been binging all the episodes. met max and his wonderful girlfriend on a plane to san diego this week. such a sweet couple loved talking to them. she was so pretty and lovely. max had the coolest adventure time tattoos. also we loved our conversation of ferris bueller, the golden girls, and blues brothers. overall kept my promise to listen to his podcast and it’s fantastic.
I highly recommend making this podcast a part of your routine if you enjoy listening to content about the 80s (one of the best eras of all time)!!
Fun and entertaining. Just what I need in a podcast.
