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?
227: Tarzan the Ape Man (1980)
On our latest episode, Jamie's unsure if Bo Derek debases herself in this movie more or less than in Ghost's Can't Do It, Doug's pretty sure it was illegal (even in 1910) to kill a man and hang his decapitated head on your wall, and we both would have preferred to have watched a movie about Tarzan and Jane just hangin' with monkeys. Paint your entire body white, seductively eat a banana, and join us as we kick off Bo Derek-cember talking about Tarzan the Ape Man!Visit our YouTube ChannelMerch on TeePublic Follow us on TwitterFollow on InstagramFind us on FacebookVisit our Website
226: He-Man & She-Ra: A Christmas Special (1985)
Hello listeners! I know you're all excited about Bo Derek-cember but we figured we'd start releasing some of our Patreon content to the masses and what better way to start than with this gem of a Holiday Special we recorded back in 2017. You will get a new Animated Holiday Special at the end of the month but why not enjoy this delight before the difficult times (we're assuming) with the Bo Derek movies we've got coming up this month.Visit our YouTube ChannelMerch on TeePublic Follow us on TwitterFollow on InstagramFind us on FacebookVisit our Website
225: Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985)
On our latest episode, Doug tells a tale of his first time watching this film and may stumble upon some childhood trauma, Jamie finds that her Vietnamese accent is just as good (or bad) as the actress in this film, and we both have to deal with unpleasant reminders of Chuck Norris. Grab an ice cold Coca-Cola, stir in a massive amount of HGH, and join us as celebrate Slysgiving once again with our good buddy John and talk about Rambo: First Blood Part II!Visit our YouTube ChannelMerch on TeePublic Follow us on TwitterFollow on InstagramFind us on FacebookVisit our Website
224: WarGames (1983)
On our latest episode, Jamie realizes that she and Ally Sheedy might not have quite the same taste in men, Doug wants movie simply about changing grades in high school and maybe touches a bit on the dad's obsession with butter, and we both aren't smart enough to unravel the plot of this movie made for children. Put on your white gloves and beret, chew your boss's gum, and join us as discuss a film that is somehow nearly two hours long, WarGames!Visit our YouTube ChannelMerch on TeePublic Follow us on TwitterFollow on InstagramFind us on FacebookVisit our Website

222: Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker (1981)
On our latest episode, Doug pleads with listeners not to simply walk into people's homes, Jamie attempts an Irish accent, and we both can't quite underwent how the environment outside the house changes so dramatically in the third act. Pickle all the vegetables, take a meat tenderizer and large rock to the dome, and join us as we cover a film with not just one, but two terrible titles with Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker aka Night Warning!Visit our YouTube ChannelMerch on TeePublic Follow us on TwitterFollow on InstagramFind us on FacebookVisit our Website
So much fun!
I started listening to this podcast a few weeks ago and can’t stop! I love the banter between Jamie and Doug - they make me laugh every time! Plus, it’s a blast to go back to some of these movies that I have not seen in a very long time. There are a lot of horror movies reviewed, which are not my thing, but plenty of other movies to keep me engaged! If you are a product of the 80s like I am - you definitely need to listen!!
Entertaining and informative!
These two have fun riffing on films and also bring on wonderful guests. Highly recommended!
Love the 80s
These two are a fan duo. Highly recommend
