Tristan + Greg are a couple of 90s kids, on a mission to re-watch every movie that meant something from their childhood. Each episode they review a 'classic' film from the 80s or 90s, and determine how it stacks up in the modern era.

We use the term classic very loosely.

    Police Academy (Hugh Wilson, 1984)

    Police Academy (Hugh Wilson, 1984)

    088 - This one has been a long time coming. It holds a special place in all of our hearts. It's that movie we might have been slightly too young to see. Maybe our dad let us watch it with him, just a couple of years too early. Maybe it was a viewing at a mates house. Either way it was a special watch in our younger days. This is very much the Leisure Suit Larry of movies - but is that a good thing? Join us for a potentially controversial episode as we play hardball with a movie that really made us struggle. This episode was hard. Legit. But also, there is Michael Winslow. How bloody great is he? This and more, in this week's episode of Double Impact.

    Predator (John McTiernan, 1987), w/ Michael Schiavello

    Predator (John McTiernan, 1987), w/ Michael Schiavello

    087 - We. Are. Finally. Doing. PREDATOR. And just to make this even more of an epic episode, we have very special guest, Michael Schiavello, AKA The Voice, AKA the most-watched-sports broadcaster in the world. We talk all of our usual segments, but we can't have Michael on the show without asking all of our burning questions about JCVD, Steven Seagal and Frank Dux - and holy moly does he deliver. So join us for 70% predator, 20% amazing behind the scenes stories of our aforementioned martial arts heroes, and 10% motivational speech.

    Memento (Christopher Nolan, 2000)

    Memento (Christopher Nolan, 2000)

    086 - We've done it! Given it's now 20 years ago, we have opened up the year 2000, and what better way to ring in the year than a Nolan film, our first Nolan film - Memento. If you're already a friend of the show, you know Nolan can be a controversial topic for us (or at least one of us), so strap yourselves in because we are going to unpack that whole thing. If you're new to the show - don't worry about it, just join us like a fresh-faced, wide-eyed Guy Pearce and enjoy. Memento is the focus here, but we of course discuss the broader Nolan-verse, as well the Nolan brother (Jonathan), and indeed the Nolan tropes (so many dead wives). But where does this low-budget indie sit relative to the modern Nolan juggernauts? And how does it hold up today? These answers an more, ready for your ear holes now.

    Crocodile Dundee (Peter Fairman, 1986)

    Crocodile Dundee (Peter Fairman, 1986)

    085 - We are back with our first Aussie film in far too long - 1986’s Crocodile Dundee. This movie is a cultural icon, there's no denying it, but how does it hold up today? A pop cultural torpedo that put Australia on the map? Or just a stereotypical relic of the past? Maybe both? Too many questions? We dive deeeeeep into this thing to find the these answers and more - and along the way, break down the pretty bloody mind blowing path Paul Hogan took in getting this thing made in the first place.

    Lethal Weapon (Richard Donner, 1987)

    Lethal Weapon (Richard Donner, 1987)

    084 - Another buddy cop blockbuster this week. In fact, it's probably the one that has come to define the genre - 1987's Lethal Weapon. Join us as we break this thing down into digestible chunks of analysis, historical context, and a healthy fear of Mel Gibson. We deep dive into Shane Black's ongoing use of Xmas as an action movie backdrop, the films origin story, dissect the plot and capture its legacy - all in an effort to decide how it holds up in 2020.

I love you guys!!!

I have only one complaint- I binged this podcast so fast, now I have to wait a full week to hear new episodes.

Keep Going...

I enjoy listening to these guys reminisce about the films of our childhoods. I’m oft reminded of films I had forgotten about and always enjoy listening to these friends discuss them. They don’t take themselves to seriously and follow and rough schematic for each episode. If you’re looking for a new movie podcast, be like Chance Boudreaux’s mama and take a chance on this one.
