Double Impact

Summary: Tristan + Greg are a couple of 90s kids, on a mission to re-watch every movie that meant something from their childhood. Each episode they review a 'classic' film from the 80s or 90s, and determine how it stacks up in the modern era. We use the term classic very loosely.

 Forrest Gump (1994) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:10:01

015 - Do you know what album sold over 12 million copies in 1994? That's right, the Forrest Gump soundtrack. This thing was ridiculously huge, swept the oscars and remains endlessly quotable today - but is it actually any good? Or is it just an empty vessel for 'member berry delivery?

 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:00:50

014 - From one organised crime film to another. From the Mob, to the Foot. Yes, it's 1990's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Turtlemania was massive in our youth, but how did it all start? Where the hell did these turtles come from and why did we love them so much? We look at the gritty origins of these gritty turtles in their first and grittiest film. Gritty.

 Goodfellas (1990) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:20:23

013 - Let's. Get. Serious. We look at our first Scorsese film, Goodfellas. We put on our film student hats (we are not film students, but we do have hats), and feast on this delicious audio visual dish from all kinds of angles. From Scorsese's use of music in film, to Joe Pesci's use of music in life that no one has ever heard. Also Tristan's mic wigs out about 52 mins in and no one knows why. Oops.

 A League of Their Own (1992) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:06:42

012 - How many female legends can you fit into one motion picture? This is the question 'A League of Their Own' attempts to answer. This was a family favourite in both of our households growing up, and is a fascinating watch in 2019 for all the reasons you might expect. We go deep on its origins and its maestro, Penny Marshall, and uncover that the story of this film getting made ain't all that different than the story it's trying to tell. All this plus bad John Lovitz impressions!

 Pet Sematary (BONUS MINISODE) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:27:56

011 - Given the release of the Pet Sematary reboot, we decided to take things back to 1989 and take another look at the original. In our first ever BONUS MINISODE, we take a whistle stop tour through the Stephen King-obsessed late 80s, and meet a family that really should have just built a damn fence, Honestly, a fence would have fixed all their problems. Anyway, they didn't, and evil ensued.

 Bloodsport (1988) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:19:12

010 - For our 10th episode we finally cover our first JCVD picture - THE first JCVD picture - Bloodsport! While we're at it, we should mention that every 10th episode of 'Double Impact' will look at a Jean-Claude Van Dam movie in chronological order. This being the first, we explore some big questions like, where did Jean-Claude Camille Fran├žois Van Varenberg came from? How did he get this movie? What's the deal with the real Frank Dux? Why is Steven Seagal such a d*ck? We even breaking out our patented 'how Van Dam is this movie?' evaluation test. #science

 Beverly Hills Cop (1984) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:57:36

009 - Today we're talking about the great Eddie Murphy as Ahkwel Foley in Beverly Hills Cop. The film is the OG action comedy. This thing is loaded with killer performances, from Murphy, Reinhold and Pinchot and more, but we also dive into the bizarre road this film took in being made. We mean it. It is truly bizarre.

 Labyrinth (1986) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:02:48

008 - Join us on a journey through time and space as we go back to '86 and dive into the wonderful world of Jim Henson's Labyrinth. We go deep on the muppet-man's most twisted of tales leaving no stone unturned - We talk puppetry, we talk muppetry, and we of course talk Davis Bowie's crotch-etry.

 Goldeneye (1995) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:03:06

007 - What better movie for our 007th episode than the 90s classic, Goldeneye? It's the film that reinvigorated a franchise, and the game that triggered the 'Nintendo thumb' epidemic of '97 - but how does the Brosnan era stack up against the Craig era?

 Wayne's World (1992) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:52:48

006 - We get so excited over Wayne's World it makes us want to hurl. in this episode we dive deep into the film's humble origins, its impact on pop culture and the rebirth of both Rob Lowe's career, and a little song called 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

 Road House (1989) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:57:17

005 - in our 5th episode we look back at fashion icon, John Dalton (brought to life with brutality and grace by Patrick Swayze) in the 1989 classic, Road House. Hot off the heels of Dirty Dancing, Swayze looks to clean up a 'small town' with a suspiciously high volume of bar goers and undesireables, the majority of which appear to carry large knives.

 Honey I Shrunk the Kids (1989) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:59:51

004 - We go back the furthest we have gone so far in the series - 1989. What happens when three horror writers decide to write a kids movie? What heights would Rick Moranis-Mania hit? Why did that cookie look so damn delicious?

 Showdown in Little Tokyo (1991) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:51:55

003 - In today's episode, we go all the way back to 1991 where a god-like creature named Dolph, and his trusty sidekick, Brandon Lee, unconsciously explore the problematic themes of the early 90's. Is it sexist? Maybe. Is it racist? Probably. Did we drink too many beers before we recorded? Definitely.

 Billy Madison (1995) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:56:29

002 - We look back at the film that launched the 'Happy Madison' empire, asking the big questions like: "why does he talk like that?", "who keeps a port-a-loo inside a tent?" and of course "is this movie actually any good?"

 Batman Forever (1995) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:52:08

001 - For our first episode, we look back at the forgotten Batman, the in-between Batman, the middle-child Batman - Batman Forever. Does the first non-Burton hold up today? Or is it simply a Bat-nipple prequel?
