Every other Friday, Doug McCambridge and Jamie Lorello discuss a film from the 1980s. Some are films we haven't seen since we were kids and offer a fresh perspective. Others are films we've never seen before but probably should have. Do they hold up? Are they classics? Or would these films just be better off having been lost to time?

    Episode 136: Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981)

    Episode 136: Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981)

    The X-Games are super dumb but we have an idea to make them at least a bit better. We appreciate the progressive sexuality of this Mad Max film and how much it leans into the S&M scene. We discuss futuristic dog fashion, are confused by basic engineering of how you extract oil from the ground and spot an Amish Road Warrior. Also, Jamie looked in vain for Tina Turner for an hour and a half. We somehow talk more about Mel Gibson's questionable movie roles of the late 90's - early 2000's than the fact that he is just a trash pile of a human being. Join us as we continue through the Summer of Sequels with Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior!

    Episode 135: Short Circuit 2 (1988)

    Episode 135: Short Circuit 2 (1988)

    A sequel that removes Guttenberg and Ally Sheedy (basically all the charm) so Doug and Jamie are stuck with Fischer Stevens and a robot devoid of humor and personality. Cynthia Gibb is given nothing to do but Doug and Jamie would watch a different film starring she and the cab driver, with whom she has the most chemistry. Fisher Stevens in brown face may strangely be one of the least offensive things about this movie. Just kidding, that's terrible even by 1988 standards. Join us as we continue through the Summer of Sequels with Short Circuit 2!

    Episode 134: Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers (1988)

    Episode 134: Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers (1988)

    Doug is mad! He's so mad at this movie that he even recommends a movie he doesn't like at the end of the episode. Jamie absolutely loves the Shit Sisters and tries clinging to that to help her get through this film. A confusing mix of gross and bland deaths, terrible acting, writing, directing and editing come together to create a shameful sequel to one of the best films we've covered on the podcast. If this entry into the Summer of Sequels didn't break us, nothing will. Join us for quite the ride as we break down Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers. We miss you so much Felissa Rose!

    Episode 133: The Karate Kid Part II (1986)

    On this episode, Doug is obsessed with the character of 'mailman', Jamie wants to start a movement #bringbackthenosehonk and adds a bit of penis to the tea ritual, and we both wonder what exactly has been happening to all of Chozen's shirts. Join us as we cover The Karate Kid Part II, the story of a Japanese girl and her messy bun.

    Episode 132: Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment (1985)

    On this episode, Jamie reveals that she has a garbage man who may not actually be a garbage man, Doug hates The Departed slightly less than he hates Mark Wahlberg, and they realize that Patrick Swayze's character in Ghost must have been a huge fan of the second Police Academy film. Join us as we cover Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment! Please provide a rating and review wherever you get the episode. Thank you!

Good Times Great Movie Pod

DP and Jamie have become my favorite movie pod duo. Their long friendship and chemistry is fabulous and their energy level and passion for movies is fantastic! I especially love the old school movie selection. I keep changing favorites, Jamie is hilarious and witty, but DP’s voice is so familiar, yet unique. Sometimes he reminds me Albert Brooks, lol. This is a must subscribe and so much fun!
