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 170: First Blood (1982)

    On our latest episode, Jamie blows Doug's mind by mentioning that she knows what Mortal Kombat is, and more surprisingly, that she's played it. Also, Doug knows exactly where Rambo fans hide their weed, and we try (and fail) not to get political when we talk about the cops in this movie.

    On our latest episode, Jamie hints that Doug's grandmother may have been a fan of Marijuana, Doug knows nothing about LOTR but tries talking about it, and while Jamie has not idea how to pronounce Mariska Hargitay's name, Doug wish hard times upon her for a ver specific (and odd reason).

    Episode 167: Fright Night (1985)

    Episode 167: Fright Night (1985)

    On our latest episode, Doug mimics the movie with some super goofy kissy noises and contemplates Gary Busey living next door (or possibly his attic), Jamie accidentally condones the killing on high class prostitutes, and we both agree that without Evil Ed, this film would never have been labeled a comedy.

    Episode 166: Poltergeist (1982)

    It's time again for the spookiest month of the year and Doug's happy as anything. On this episode, Jamie doesn't want to hear a damn thing about Caroline in the City, Doug tries so hard to get that Zelda Rubenstein voice but it just comes out sounding like Dolly Parton, and we both kinda want to live in this Spielbergian/Hooper mashup suburbia. Take your kid's bike out to get some beer, stack your kitchen chairs on the table, and join us as we discuss a film that we can only imagine had parents at the time wondering just exactly what a movie needed to do to earn an 'R' rating, Poltergeist!We begin the episode with an introduction from Felissa Rose and end with a Sleepaway Camp tune from Poltergeist OD!

    Episode 165: The Black Cauldron (1985)

    We cover our first Disney animated film and it sure is something. On this episode, Jamie wonders just how much cleavage a witch has to show to get your animated movie an 'R' rating, Doug doesn't understand why the elderly don't just line up to commit suicide, and we both marvel at how a 75 minute animated film with a very simple story can be so wildly confusing. Join us as we discuss a film that represents a real low point in the Disney corporation juggernaut, The Black Cauldron!Consider supporting the show on Patreon Full episodes are available on: Blame it on Rio The House on Sorority Row A He-Man and She-Ra Christmas The Hollywood Knights The Great Outdoors Silver Bullet One Magic Christmas The Cabbage Patch Kids First Christmas Under the Cherry Moon Haunted Honeymoon CommandoBeverly Hills Madam Happy Birthday to Me A Christmas Dream A Garfield Christmas SupergirlGarlic is as Good as Ten Mothers Who's Harry Crumb Missing in Action 2: The Beginning Revenge of the Stepford Wives Evil Dead II DuneA Claymation Christmas CelebrationHoward the DuckHow to Beat the High Cost of LivingThey LiveThis House PossessedMonkey Shines& more.. Including our 80's Handshake 5, 90's Handshake 5, Questions and Answers, Interviews & covering/ranking all movies in the Friday the 13th Franchise! Merch on TeePublic Visit our WebsiteVisit our YouTube ChannelFollow us on TwitterAnd on InstagramFind us on Facebook

80s Movie goodness!!!

Best part of this podcast is how it makes me feel like I’m hanging with a couple friend talking movies. Sometimes we are gushing over our favorites or other times we are poking funny at the bad ones. Either way, it’s a fun time!
