    # 76 - Maximum Overdrive

    Stephen King's books have become MANY classic motion pictures. But Maximum Overdrive is the only one he wrote AND directed. How good of a director is he? The answer is: how much cocaine do you have??  Apparently he had all of it. Its an 80's action/horror/slasher/sci film made by a guy who was so coked up, he literally doesn't remember making the movie. Its got Emilio Estevez, Southern Lisa Simpson, Commissioner Gordon, and a whole bunch of sentient, killer semi trucks. What else do you want?? Toll loved it as a kid, and this is Alex's first time ever seeing it. Is there childhood ruined?? Listen now!

    #75 - Air Force One

    It's Die Hard on an airplane staring Harrison Ford as the president! IT was a monster hit in 1997, but does it hold up?? Gary Oldman chews up the scenery, and Harrison Ford FORD PUNCHES lots of bad guys. Toll and Alex loved it growing up, but does it still make sense? Explosions! Murders! BAD CGI! GET OFF MY PLANE AND ON THIS PODCAST!

    #74 - Innerspace

    A sci-fi classic from 1987 from JOE DANTE (not Joe Johnston) with Martin Short and Dennis Quaid! It was a fun special effects movie that Toll and Alex loved, but it bombed at the box office. Is it any good? Does it hold up? Dennis Quaid gets naked, Martin Short spazzes out, and Meg Ryan has her original face! Also, our main man Vernon Wells is back. This is a deep cut, so listen now!

    #73 - Con Air

    Con Air! A classic action hero movie from the 90's! Its got Cage, Malkovich, Cusak, Buscemi, Chappelle, and Meaney, but does it hold up? Nicholas Cage is completely out of control, Ving Rhames has the MEATS, and Bubba is hurtin' for a squirtin'.   Its a big ol' Bruckheimer movie, but is it good? Is it bad? Is it just one long GIF?  Maybe!  Listen now!!

    Die Hard is over 30 years old! It's a beloved movie, but does it hold up AND is it a Christmas movie?? It's also Alan Rickman's first movie and Bruce Willis' first box office mega hit.

This episode has it all, including Bruce Willis face, Andy Griffith, Nestle's Crunch, John McCain, and Toll the Crossing Guard. Enjoy, yippie ki yay, and Merry Christmas *makes Bruce Willis face*.

Oh boy

Alex and Toll are a hilarious duo who make you feel like you’re sitting with them and watching the movies and drinking whatever they’re drinking. I can smell the living room they record this in. They have amazing chemistry and compliment each other perfectly. It’s the only podcast I don’t fast forward and I love their nostalgia!
