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
What do Lindon B. Johnson, Camilla Parker Bowles, and George Lazenby have in common? They had the distinct honor of filling John F. Kennedy, Princess Diana, and Sean Connery’s James bond shoes. Greatness is rare. The replacement of greatness being great is even more rare. Scholars agree that the 1987 John McTiernan film Predator, is the greatest film ever made. And while Predator 2 was a valiant effort to recapture lightening in a bottle, for the most part all those who have followed have been a far cry from the original. So it should come as no shock to any of you that the news of a Predator prequal taking place in the 1700s, with a female lead, had a lukewarm reception from Buzzn The Tower. However as 80s film historians we must review this potential dumpster fire and give our two cents. And that’s exactly what we're going to do. Today on Buzzn The Tower we'll take a look at the latest attempt at a Predator movie as we talk all things Prey. I'm Mo Shapiro, and joining me as always the Mac to my Blain, Max Sanders. And with that
Well, long tall Sally, she's built for speed
She got everything that Uncle John needs
Oh, baby, yes, baby
Whoo, baby, havin' me some fun tonight, yeah
Tomatometer Bargain Shopping
Rotten Tomatoes has become the preeminent film reviewer. Algorithmic vegetable mathematics provide the average Joe a look at what the pros think, and a look at what the fans think. And while you may not always agree with the rating you can't argue the gospel that is, RottenTomatoes.com
As luck would have it, Max stumbled into a Tik Tok were participants were challenged to use Tomatometer ratings as point values, and create watch lists not exceeding certain established limits. Sound confusing? Don't worry, we have an entire episode to explain it. Today on Buzzn The Tower, we'll make a list of five movies each that cannot exceed 120 points. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the person whose love for Howard The Duck almost singlehandedly destroyed our podcast, Max Sanders. And with that, let's talk Tomatoes!
Why Max Loves Howard The Duck
According to the internet, here's a list of the worst films made in the 1980s...

Jaws: The Revenge
She's Out Of Control
The Garbage Pail Kids Movie

And last but certainly not least, Howard The Duck!
Yet despite being one of the worst films ever made, one cohost of Buzzn The Tower prays at the webbed foot altar of this film. Today on Buzzn The Tower, I will attempt to understand why Max loves Howard The Duck. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the DARK OVERLORD to my Cajun sushi restaurant, Max Sanders. And with that...
Why Mo Loves The Goonies
I'm Mo Shapiro, you might know me from such podcasts as Buzzn The Tower. I like John Hughes, Predator, and karaoke. I don't like rats, Howard The Duck, or Max...my cohost. More important than any of that, I love The Goonies! Over the last eighteen months and eighty-five episodes I have tried to dedicate an entire episode to the Donner/Spielberg classic a number of times, but my cohost/arch nemesis has prevented me from living out my dream. Through shrewd negotiation I am happy to announce that today on Buzzn The Tower we will talk about all things Goonies as I defend my love for the greatest film ever made. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Troy to my Bran, Max Sanders. And with that...
Acting One-Hit Wonders
The 1980s were packed with musical one-hit wonders, but this podcast is not about music! Today on Buzzn The Tower, we're going to list our favorite Acting One-Hit Wonders from our some radical 80s flicks. I'm Mo Shapiro joining me as always the toora to my loora, Max Sanders. And with that...Come on Eileen!
The 80s Collector Part 4
Over three previous episodes, we have methodically filled our airport hangar museum with 80s memorabilia that would make the most refined collector jealous. Our fictional museum has such treasures as the boombox from Say Anything, Bill and Ted's phone booth from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, Johnny 5 from Short Circuit, Tim Cappello's saxophone from The Lost Boys, and even the Muppet babies from The Muppets Take Manhattan. With tons of imaginary space still unused, we'll continue to select the items we would want to put in our 80s movie museum. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the curator of my imagination, Max Sanders. And with that, let' s play make-believe!
