    Swimfan

    Swimfan

    This week, the Old Millennials are discussing the stalker thriller "Swimfan." We wonder why this movie didn't have more AIM in it, try to figure out why nobody was creeped out by this high school student dressing like a 50-year old woman, debate whether you can ever make a swimming scene look cool, and try to come up with better twist endings than this movie delivered.

    Time Warp! Porky's

    Time Warp! Porky's

    This week, we're digging into one of the most iconic teen sex romps of all time, "Porky's." We debate whether this movie was a big bait-and-switch, work out the logistics of driving 70 miles through the Florida Everglades at night in the 50s, reveal why this movie is super problematic for unexpected reasons, and remember a time when George Mikan was one of the NBA's most dominant players.

    Not Another Teen Movie

    Not Another Teen Movie

    This week, we're talking about a movie that took dead aim at basically every other movie we've ever covered on this podcast, 2001's Not Another Teen Movie. We discuss the distinction between satire and parody, get really pissed about the Bring It On storyline, talk about how gross the Cruel Intentions kiss was, and reveal which cast member was high on cocaine for the entirety of the filming of this movie.

    13 Going On 30

    13 Going On 30

    This week, we dig into Jennifer Garner's star turn, the time travel rom-com "13 Going on 30." Is it a teen movie? No, no it is not. It's also not good, romantic, or funny. We get really upset about the "Thriller" dance number, wish we spent more time in the 80s, try to understand why we were supposed to want these two to wind up together, and discuss all the badly missed opportunities for actual comedy.

    Scream 2

    Scream 2

    This week, we're wrapping up our Halloween Spooktacular with the sequel to the quintessential teen slasher movie of our generation, "Scream 2." We do a deep dive on the opening scene, break down all of the kills, celebrate the death of Jamie Kennedy, and get really, really irritated by the absurd twist ending.

    The Faculty

    The Faculty

    The 2021 Spooktacular continues with the sci-fi teen horror suspense movie, "The Faculty." We debate the wisdom of taking a drug some guy made up in his garage without asking any questions first, discuss the top-notch late 90s CGI, heap praise on Coach T-1000, and remember that time Crooks and Dave's high school physics teacher got derailed and spent an entire period working out the logic behind making a working lightsaber.

Interesting

Would love to have any Weinstein produced film that has been reviewed revisited in this post #metoo era to see how his production have had an impact on the way his films were produced- like several male gaze moments in “She’s All That”. Interesting to hear people talk about films- takes me back to college when we did the same, and for credit 😀

Yes

A good mix of laughs, nostalgia, film critique, social commentary. Looking forward to season 2!

Great Show

I love the nostalgia of rehashing these movies from my teens and early 20s mixed with the viewpoint from the lense of reality in my 30s. Keep up the awesome work! Love you guys!
