197 episodes

Tripp and Andrew Laino have been watching movies together since 1992, and making fun of them together since 1999, when a rainy afternoon of babysitting turned into 8 straight hours of cheesy science fiction, popcorn and jokes. Raised on a strict diet of 80s adventure, action, comedy and drama, the pair have an undying love for the 1980s and all of the weird, wonderful cinema therein. Since 2014, they've hosted this podcast - every other week they dissect a movie (or sometimes a TV show), finding plot holes, bad lighting and acting choices and the bizarre cinema quirks of 30-odd years ago (Smoking in hospitals! Rubber suits without neck hinges! Corey Feldman!).

     Merry Christmas, gang!
    We're tackling a truly odd duck of a movie: Santa Claus: The Movie!
    Why is John Lithgow wearing these enormous teeth? Why does this movie spend 50 minutes doing Santa's life story with absolutely, positively no conflict whatsoever? What's going on with the workshop? Why are all these children flying!?
