After a three week gap, your co-hosts Chris and Josh have returned with a plethora of films they’ve watched in the in-between time. In fact, we’ve got 19 movies to talk about to deliver you three hours of chat about action, horror and… syphilis?
In preparation for his upcoming New York trip Josh gives TAXI DRIVER a re-visit, we gave each other “homework” with two films involving bank robbers and prison, Chris gets even closer to his goal of never having to watch a CHILDREN OF THE CORN sequel ever again, JOHN WICK delivers the goods not once but twice, Chris gets all BOOKSMART, we both have our issues with THE RANGER, we form a punk band all because of disease spreading teenagers and so much more!
As two guys who have loved movies for as long as we can remember, we recently decided to try and pinpoint the exact moment that films went from being just something you would watch on television or go see with friends on the weekend to an outright obsession. What year made the biggest impact on us and threw us over the edge and what movies were involved in fueling this lifelong love of all things cinema?
For part two of this short series, your co-host Chris takes a look at the year that defined him: 1986. From viewing way more horror movies than a kid should during free movie channel weekends, to getting his first VCR, to discovering the joy of Melanie Griffith; this was truly a year filled with great films, killer creatures and a really dark basement.
We start off, as always, by talking about what we’ve been watching as we finally finish our Cheech & Chong journey (for now), Josh watches a bigfoot documentary that isn’t, Chris has a “revelation”, our man Cirio H. Santiago makes a triumphant return to the podcast, there’s a kick-ass heist, and much more!
