Episode 63: We Watched Stuff

After a three week hiatus in which co-host Josh was on vacation, we ended up watching way too much stuff!

First off, Josh tells us all about the cool and bizarre things he saw on his two week jaunt to Japan and then we get down to the business at hand: talking about movies! We get a best picture Oscar winner, an 80’s slasher Chris actually hasn’t seen, Chris is told to GET OUT, Josh goes on a lengthy rant about the new Kong movie, and so much more!

Episode 42: Missing in Action

Hey, kids! Do you like explosions? Our hero having his name yelled repeatedly by upset bad guys? Top rippings? Jet powered boats? Bad covers of Rod Stewart songs? You’ll get all this and more as we tackle the Missing in Action series for episode 42 of GBW!

However, first we take a long time to catch you up on what we’ve been watching (it’s been a month, after all) as we talk the holy grail of 80’s slashers, a daredevil documentary, the newly released Hush, a whole lot of Reb Brown and much, much more!

If you’re a fan of Chuck Norris – or 80’s Cannon action flicks where stuff blows up real good – then tune in as we get lost in the jungles of Vietnam.

Episode 40: The Outsiders Legacy

We read S.E. Hinton’s novel in school. We got caught up in the tale of the greasers vs. the socs. Francis Ford Coppola brought it to the big screen and brought one of the biggest young ensemble casts of the 80’s.

Names like Howell, Swayze, Lowe, and Cruise co-starred and all of them went on to lengthy careers of various quality. We take a look at them all and talk about our favourite moments in their resumes.

But first, we first catch you up with what we’ve been watching as Chris has a hard time being positive about his latest viewings including getting really mad about Kevin Smith. Meantime, Josh talks about Zack Snyder’s takes on Superman and gets all “women in chains” with Pam Grier and Margaret Markov. Plus much more!

Episode 39: Top Ten Vampire Movies

Of all the horror sub-genres, it’s pretty safe to say that vampires have been given the most attention. There’s just so many out there, how could you possibly choose?

That’s where we come in! We’ve both chosen our top ten favourite vampire movies of all-time varying from the arthouse, to the grindhouse, to the “this is so 80’s” cannon – with some surprises in-between. So tune in and hear us talk all about the ‘children of the night’.

As always, we first catch you up with what we’ve been watching as Chris revisits a superhero flick of his youth, the guys continue their recent love affair with everything Burt Reynolds, and Josh half-heartedly chants Beetlejuice three times. Plus much more!

Episode 38: Drive-In Double Features

Despite having its peak in the 50’s and 60’s, the drive-in movie theatre will be forever ingrained into history. Where else can you spend a summer night watching two movies, stuffing your face full of popcorn and hot dogs, hanging out with buddies, and (hopefully) making out in the backseat of your car?

In the spirit of this bygone cinema-going experience we’ve come up with lists of movies we’d love to see paired up and on a giant outdoor screen while the speaker hooked up to our car window gives off the crackly sounds of tinny gunfire and explosions.

First off we catch you up with what we’ve been watching as Chris takes a big journey back to the 80’s with the likes of the javelin killing slasher flick Fatal Games and hyperactive dancing of Flashdance while Josh continues his path towards depravity with I Spit on Your Grave 2 as well as discovering one of his favourite vampire movies of all-time. Plus much more!
