This week’s prestige film is Pump Up the Volume. Christian Slater plays a mild mannered highschooler by day who transforms into pirate radio station DJ Happy Harry Hard-on by night, to scandalize his conservative town with profanity laced tirades about sex, drugs, and the utter meaningless of life. Is this movie just teen-agey angsty bullshit, or does it have something relevant to say in 2021 where everyone has a microphone and a public platform? Join us for the podcast to find out.
It’s the 30th Anniversary of the gangster classic, Goodfellas. Martin Scorsese has a long history making gangster movies. We covered his latest one, The Irishman, already but now we’re going back to cover his most famous one. It’s a wild ride, beginning with the Marty insight into the allure of the criminal underworld that you’ve come to expect and culminating in one of the all-time great scenes of chaos and paranoia. Check out the podcast to hear what we thought about it thirty years later.
The Hunt for Red October is a classic naval thriller starring Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin in the lead roles. As a big Tom Clancy fan, it’s also one of A.Ron’s favorite films. Does it hold up 30 years later? Join us on the podcast to find out.

Today we’re livewatching the 1990 Kevin Bacon classic, Tremors!
Merry Culkin Keatmas! This is of course our follow up podcast to the LiveWatch of Home Alone, in which we take issue with our old pal Roger Ebert’s dour review of the film, trade trivia about the film, and in general talk about why it’s one of our very favorite Christmas films. We’re not done! Not by a long shot. Come back next week as we put the Keaton back in Keatmas with Batman Returns!
Merry Culkin Keatmas! Our second movie is the 1990 holiday classic / child torture porn flick Home Alone. We think it’s awesome and holds up like a champ, others who are wrong disagree. Use our LiveWatch to sync up our commentary with your copy of Home Alone and laugh and groan along with us!
This community commissioned podcast is for the 1990 television series, Twin Peaks. Created Mark Frost and David Lynch, we can only imagine the impact this had on audiences 30 years ago as 30 million Americans obsessively tuned in every week to answer the question, “who killed Laura Palmer?” Jim ultimately doesn’t like it, but I see it’s potential and got a lot of enjoyment from the crazy tonal swings and quirky, off beat nature. Also, lots of beautiful and interesting people on screen constantly, which always helps.
Merry Christmas everyone! Jim and I decided to give ourselves and you all a little gift. We’re massive Godfather fans, BUT! In spite of, or maybe because of, this fact, we’ve never, ever seen The Godfather Part III. On one cold and blustery Ohio day last week, we remedied this situation, and recorded our reactions immediately following our first viewing. The result may be a surprise!
