This is Jay, Erin, and Richard, and we're The VCR Kids! We watch movies from our childhood and see if they still hold up. Every week we take a movie we loved (or maybe just watched) as a child and submit it for review to our adult brains. We also have special episodes on Pretentious Picks, and our Harry Potter Virgin series where we force our friend Andrew to watch all the movies. Subscribe to the show and tell your friends! Shoot us a line on social media @TheVCRKids, we'd love to hear from you!

    Mulan 1998 v 2020: Is It Worth It?

    Should you pay $30 to watch the new Mulan? Does it hold up to the original? Or is it just another Disney Cash Grab? We’ve got all the answers. We watched the original Mulan from 1998 and the remake to let you know whether you should shell out that sweet sweet cash.

    Black Beauty

    Black Beauty

    One of the best selling books of all time got turned into a movie starring Ned Stark, Professor Lupin, and Nightcrawler. Missed it? That’s probably because it was about horses. We watched Black Beauty from 1994 to see if it still holds up!

    Kazaam

    Kazaam

    Has anyone ever told you you’re the gold of their soul? Probably not, because it’s not a thing. Erin sure thinks it is, though! Kazaam is… a movie. That we watched. And you can watch it too, if you want, I guess. But I would recommend listening to this episode first!

Ruining my childhood one episode at a time!

Love the concept of the show! Nostalgia is a funny thing and I have been afraid to go back and watch some of my old staples of my childhood, for fear I would be disappointed, well now I don’t have to! These three do a great job breaking down the movies all while having fun! Great job! You got a new subscriber in me!
