    Episode #321: "Call the mud guy" | Mr. Destiny (1990)

    Larry feels like there could have been more to his life than just building model cars in an unfinished house in the suburbs. His job is fine, but not great. The boss's wife seems more appealing than his own. Then one night, after getting fired from his job and having his car break down, he meets Michael and is given the chance to see what life would have been like if he had just hit that final pitch in the high school baseball championship game 20 years ago...
    Jim Belushi, Linda Hamilton, and Jon Lovitz star in Mr. Destiny.
    Thanks to Pádraig Donnchú (Patreon co-executive producer) for selecting Mr. Destiny as our first-ever Listener's Choice movie!

    Episode #319: "Cruelty to Children" | The Witches (1990)

    Episode #319: "Cruelty to Children" | The Witches (1990)

    When Luke's parents die in an accident, he travels with an elderly mentor and is pursued by an evil black-clad villain with a penchant for cutting off appendages. I just realized this movie is a copy of Star Wars! Not really... but it is the film adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic The Witches.

    Anjelica Huston, Mai Zetterling, Jasen Fisher, and Rowan Atkinson star in The Witches.

After over 300 shows, these guys are serious professionals. A great concept to look back at movies turning 30. It’s fun to remember back and to see how they hold up after three decades. Not just for serious movie buffs. Subscribed
