Rewinding back to our favourite movies of the 1980s

    Back To The Future

    Back To The Future

    "I guess you guys aren't ready for that yet... But your kids are going to love it"
    One of the all-time greats finally arrives on Betamax - and we go all the way back to 1985 to revisit a lot of people's favourite movie. Due to poor planning it's not episode 88, but better early than late. Joining me in the podcasting Delorean is Beano cartoonist Andy Fanton.

    The Goonies

    The Goonies

    "HEY YOU GUYS!!!!!"
    Welcome to the biggest adventure on Betamax so far as I'm joined by two guests for the first time, Doug and Elly from the newish podcast Doug and Elly Watch Telly. They were surprisingly gentle with a movie that a lot of people will count as their favourite.
    Thank you for the ongoing support - don't forget to share, rate and review the podcast. Plus, if you do enjoy it, then let me know - makes a huge difference.

    "You dirt-eating piece of slime! You scum-sucking pig! You son of a motherless goat!"

    Pretty In Pink

    Pretty In Pink

    "His name is Blane? Oh! That's a major appliance, that's not a name!"
    We remain in the classics section this time with one of the defining movies of the era, featuring the first lady of 80s cinema Molly Ringwald.
    Joining me at the prom is The Telegraph's arts and entertainment editor Anita Singh - she even has a copy of the novelisation with the original ending so clearly an authority on the topic. She also suggests a very interesting companion film at the end...
    Thanks again for the ongoing support

    Top Gun

    Top Gun

    "The defense department regrets to inform you that your sons are dead because they were stupid."
    One of the great 80s movies gets the Betamax treatment as I'm joined in the cockpit by broadcaster Simon London - we play a little volleyball, lose that lovin' feeling and enjoy some sweet Kenny Loggins.
