    The Prestige

    The Prestige

    Are you listening closely? We're discussing the underrated Christopher Nolan masterpiece, The Prestige, starring Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale. This movie slots into Johnny's Top 10 favorite films, and for good reason. A great movie with excellent twists and turns, that remains very rewatchable even after knowing how it all ends.

    Manhunter

    Manhunter

    Before Anthony Hopkins became Hannibal Lecter, Brian Cox brought the cannibalistic doctor to life in the 1986 adaptation of Red Dragon, Manhunter. Eventually it would be remade with Hopkins in 2002's Red Dragon, but we are here to talk about Michael Mann's first crack at it, years before Silence of the Lambs took movie audiences, critics, and award shows by storm.

    HALLOWEEN (1978)

    HALLOWEEN (1978)

    John Carpenter's 1978 classic slasher film, HALLOWEEN. The most successful independent movie of its time was made with a rebellious and ragtag spirit, and cemented itself as one of the most influential scary movies of all time. And yes, Mike and Johnny spend a few minutes roasting Rob Zombie's terrible remakes.

    Boogie Nights

    Boogie Nights

    A movie about porn with Burt Reynolds and Heather Graham having sex in roller skates, what else do you need? We're talking all about the 1997 Academy Award nominated Paul Thomas Anderson movie, which launched Mark Wahlberg's career to mainstream status. Somehow we did this entire episode without using the term "soapy", we must be maturing...

    Commando

    Commando

    An episode all about the 1985 Arnold Schwarzenegger classic 80s action bonanza. We go way off the rails on this one and come to the unfounded conclusion that this movie required everyone involved with making it to be on a lot of cocaine. From absurd villains and cheesy one-liners, to random explosions and superhero-level shows of strength, this is a perfect 80s Schwarzenegger movie. Come hang as we revisit COMMANDO!
