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?

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!!
