    White Men Can't Jump

    White Men Can't Jump

    Ball in! We head back to 1992 and discuss the basketball comedy White Men Can't Jump. The movie that really launched Woody Harrelson's movie career, and teaches an important lesson on how to trash talk, but also feels like you're watching a very slow train wreck as Woody's character keeps finding ways to screw up his life chasing the high of glory.

    The Fugitive

    The Fugitive

    This episode is all about the 1993 Harrison Ford classic cat and mouse thriller The Fugitive. Yes, we finally got to an H. Ford movie. For a crime drama/thriller, we get a bit off the rails and comical on this one, but we hope you enjoy your take on the last Best Picture nominee of Harrison Ford's career. We delve into why this movie stands the test of time and stands above others of its genre, with our typical brand of humor and analysis throughout.

    JAWS

    JAWS

    JAWS was the first blockbuster that changed the movie industry forever, and we talk all about the 1975 career-making Steven Spielberg film. From the troubled production to its immense industry-changing success, we dive into all of it, and Johnny even cracks open and tries a Narragansett lager for the first time, which might or might not be followed by a can crush.

    American Psycho

    American Psycho

    Before he was Batman, Christian Bale played a role more like the Joker, as psychotic serial killer Patrick Bateman in 2000's American Psycho. We dive into this commentary on high-finance decadence and vapidness of the late 1980s, and discuss whether or not it matters whether we know if he killed those people, or if it was in his head, or a mix of both. We laced up our running sneakers and dropped the chainsaw down the stairwell, did we hit our target? We'll let you decide.

    TOP GUN

    TOP GUN

    TOP GUN was the biggest blockbuster of 1986, a movie that charmed both men and women alike, supersonically vaulting it into an instant classic that carried a legacy to this day, which eventually led to a sequel in Top Gun: Maverick. But we are here to talk about the original, from its high-octane action, stellar soundtrack, on and off-set relationships, to ghost Goose, and more. Great balls of fire! Join us as we talk about the best of the best, TOP GUN!

    Unforgiven (1992)

    Unforgiven (1992)

    Clint Eastwood returned to Westerns in a big way with the critically acclaimed, financially successful, award winning, and fan beloved Unforgiven in 1992. Along with Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman, this more realistic take on Western life in late 1800s America sets itself apart, and we had a blast revisiting it for its 30th anniversary. They don't make em like Eastwood and Hackman anymore, and the same goes for Unforgiven, arguably one of the overall greatest Western movies of all time.
