We rewatch partially forgotten movies from our youth that, for better or worse, made us who we are. Most of the movies will be from the 80's and early-mid 90's, but some other decades will end up in there as well.
095 - Carnosaur (1993)
Only one dinosaur movie from 1993 had the audacity to tell truths that the big Hollywood studios were afraid to tackle. Sure, Jurassic Park hints at man’s folly, but only this Roger Cormon produced classic dares to float the hypothesis that maybe people are so terrible that all women should be killed by a virus that forces them to birth dinosaurs, dooming humans to extinction. Fans of nihilistic dinosaur puppets are in for the ride of their lives...probably in some sort of tractor trailer truck hauling live chickens.
094 - Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992)
Bridget’s original pick for episode 69 has everything you’d expect from a sexy romance film: pickup artist Dracula, terrible accents, trains, Beastman getting it on, and of course, discussions about real estate deals. You haven’t lived until you’ve seen a woman excitedly share her bed with Bat Boy’s hot older brother!
093 - Lady in White (1988)
They don’t make ‘em like they used to! I mean, how many murders do kids in movies witness these days? One? Maybe two? But do they witness upwards of 3 murders, relive several of them over and over, almost get murdered himself, and by a close family friend? So this week, Matt wants to bring us back to those simpler times, and to one of the movies that inspired the creation of this podcast!
092 - Flight of the Navigator (1986)
It’s a kids movie that teaches important lessons like dealing with grief, the passage of time, not trusting the government, and the theory of general relativity! If you don’t remember this one, don’t worry. Neither does Sarah Jessica Parker, apparently! This podcast also contains multiple minutes about how we all just thought this movie starred Henry Thomas.
091 - My Girl (1991)
This week, Bridget brings one of the most infamously traumatizing films from older millennials’ youths. The film that made us all distrust bees, learned to leave our lost mood rings in the woods, and assume we could die at ANY time. Returning to it 30 years later, there’s plenty of other trauma to pull from this movie! Vada Sultenfuss is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
090 - The Legend of Billie Jean (1985)
CW: Sexual assault and child abuse.
This week, Fair is Fair! What does that mean? It means a couple of kids from Corpus Christi, Texas are going to get the 600 some-odd dollars they’re owed from a sketchy businessman and his degenerate son before shipping out for Vermont, land of maple syrup and seasonal outdoor sports. A movie so famous it got its own Pat Benetar theme and at least two Blu Ray releases. Really? You’ve never heard of it? But Billie Jean was so famous! They even made frisbees with her face on them!
One of my new favorite podcasts. I look forward to the new episode every Monday, gets me through the work day!
The last unicorn
Movie trivia, movie reviews, movie dissections....I’m about it. So I’m definitely into what this podcast is serving. Excited for the other episodes and what’s to come.
