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.

 Friday the 13th (Sean S. Cunningham, 1980) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:19:49

140 - So... usually every 10th episode is a JCVD joint, but it's spooky season so we've had to pivot. JCVD will be back soon! Instead, this week it's a slasher with a massive legacy - Friday the 13th - but is it any goooooood? We dive deep on this one. Tristan watched almost every movie in the franchise, so we end up talking about the series as a whole, it's legacy, and the inevitable comparison to John Carpenter's Halloween.

 The Addams Family (Barry Sonnenfeld, 1991) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:17:05

139 - Welcome to week TWO of our Spooky-Time Spectacular miniseries, with the iconic Addams Family. This thing has been in a constantly evolving in pop culture since it first appeared in The New Yorker back in 1938 - and this iteration is no different! Join us as we poke around and break this thing down. So much to talk about. Too much to list here. So just trust us and listen!

 Devil's Advocate (Taylor Hackford, 1997) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:12:00

138 - Welcome to the very first episode of our Spooky-Time Spectacular halloween mini-series. We start things off with a different kind of spooky with this one. Keanu tries an accent, Pacino plays the devil. Charlize Theron steals the god damn show. What else do you need? So join us as we unpack one of the more bizarre pop-cultural artefacts of 1997

 Howard the Duck with Dan Jones (aka @movieverse) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:24:49

137 - Ok first things first, Greg had mic issues for the first 10 mins of this episode - so hang in there, there audio quality gets much better 10 mins in! Second, we have a VERY special guest this week - nostalgic film instagram lord, and Howard the Duck mega-fan, Dan Jones, who you likely know as the man behind @movieverse on instagram. Howard the Duck is the kind of movie you either love or hate. Or is it? Join us as we descend into a philosophical chat around finding value, and perhaps even greatness, in what are objectively not 'great' films.

 The Birdcage (Mike Nichols, 1996) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:23:06

136 - It's the final episode of our "Popping Tristan's Cherry" miniseries, and what better way to cap it off than a trip down old South Beach way, to check out the Birdcage? This movie was wasted on our foolish adolescent minds when it came out in the 90s, but has become a favourite in Greg's household since. Tristan on the other hand... Well he hasn't seen it obviously. Hey this thing was also based on a French play! More juicy origin story nuggets and a mixed bag of film criticism inside this weeks bloody terrific episode.

 Trainspotting (Danny Boyle, 1996) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:22:02

135 - Big movie week, guys. Danny Boyle, Ewan McGregor, Scotland, EMOTIONAL TRAUMA - it's Trainspotting! This is a pretty big one for a lot of us who reach teens by the mid-90s. Not Tristan though, he had never seen it before. Shame on Tristan. As you'd expect we go deeeeeep, and when it's a movie like this, it can get a little dark - so don't worry, we even it out with talk of Crochet and Steve Irwin. Stay safe team!

 Gladiator (Rowdy Herrington, 1992) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:22:35

134 - Ok, this is 1992's Gladiator. With Cuba Gooding Jr, not Russell Crowe. Now that that's out the way - This is the first episode in the 'Popping Tristan's Cherry' miniseries where we are diving into movies Tristan had never seen before this week. If you are one of the many, many, many people that never saw this film, it's currently streaming on Netflix. If you are one of the existing fans of this movie, you have come to the right place!

 The Blues Brothers with Dan Ilic | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:14:06

133 - We are on a mission from God - and we have iconic Aussie comedian Dan Ilic with us! Dan joins us to help break down this much-requested movie featuring the musical magic of a Memphis rhythm section with New York horns section, The Blues Brothers.

 Kindergarten Cop with Adam Wylie | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:28:28

132 - This. Movie. Is. Iconic. But we hadn't watched it in about 20 years, so the pressure was on! To add even more pressure, we've also got one of the stars from this very movie to help us break it all down - actor, magician, and TikTok extraordinaire, Adam Wylie. Adam of course gives us allllll the inside knowledge and behind the scenes scoops which make this episode, one that simply cannot be missed!

 Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (Kevin Reynolds, 1991) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:20:17

131 - Mullets. Various American accents. The invention of gunpowder. Solving racism. Ah yes, Robin Hood.

 The Quest (Jean-Claude Van Damme, 1996) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:15:24

130 - We are back for the next chapter in the JCVD dynasty, The Quest. Not just another fight tournament film, but a fight tournament film DIRECTED by Jean-Claude Van Damme - HISTORIC! But is it any good? Tune in and find out. PS. The real Frank Dux also makes an appearance on this ep PPS. We try to pronounce 'oeuvre' several times

 License to Drive with Jerah Milligan | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:20:48

129 - We are back in peak 80s teen aesthetic this week with 1988's License to Drive. But even more importantly, we have Jerah Milligan with us on the pod to help us break down this bad boy. From the Coreys, to... many things... truth is, we go off on a few tangents on this one, so buckle up and enjoy the ride. You can find more Jerah on his podcast Black Men Can't Jump [In Hollywood]

 Uncle Buck (John Hughes, 1989) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:10:54

128 - Yes, we may have under-indexed on John Candy films to-date. But we are rectifying this as of now with 1989's Uncle Buck. For most people, it was either this or Home Alone that introduced them to Macauley Culkin, and according to his family, this Candy performance is the closest to the real life huggable human - so does this already make this 80s icon immortal? Tune in and find out

 Cliffhanger (Renny Harlin, 1993) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:23:43

127 - Just in time (read: 2 weeks late) for Stallone's 75th birthday, we are hitting Cliffhanger. This is an oft-requested lat pack classic that has been on the list for a while - so here it is! It's another lockdown pod. We might be getting a little loopy. Anyway, hope you enjoy.

 Airplane (a.k.a Flying High, 1980) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:13:03

126 - from another week in lockdown, we bring you another lock down pod. We hope all our friends of the show impacted by the Delta strain are hanging in there! What better way to brighten your day than discussing the delightful Leslie Nielsen? There is no better way, so thats what we're doing guys. It's Airplane baby!!!
