Episode 109: TriStar Pictures

Because we like taking chances and have a desire to be more niche than we already are it’s time, just like the last episode about Las Vegas, to try something new by focusing on a specific film company.

TriStar Pictures and their iconic flying pegasus logo has ushered us through many an entertaining movie and usually guaranteed fun genre-like pictures with the slightest of Hollywood sheen on them. Which is why we’re each picking our five favourite films to be released by the company. However, to get even MORE specific, we’re only covering the first fifteen years of their existence from 1984-1999.

But first we’re talking about what we’ve watched including Jordan Peele’s latest US, Ernest Borgnine bringing the late 80’s action, another visit to those murderous kids who love them some corn, Jess Franco tells us NIGHTMARES COME AT NIGHT, a documentary about one of the first kick-ass women in rock, the Crue dishing THE DIRT, and so much more!
