 Episode 53: A Nightmare On Elm Street 1984 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 6404

This week Sylvia picked Wes Craven's classic horror game changer A Nightmare On Elm Street. This film undoubtedly changed the way we looked at horror as a genre. Robert Englunds Freddy Kreuger has become synonomus  with nightmare and terror. This movie started out as another Halloween clone and quickly became it's own universe cut away from the slasher genre. While the acting is mid range to low there were some  standouts including Englunds performance, John Saxxons down to earth and real work as Nancy's father. This is also Johnny Depp's first movie role.  We give this film a 9 out of 10 for it's ability to stand out against time as one of the greatest horror films of all time. reach out to us here:moviesagainsttime@gmail.comInsta: moviesagainstTwitter: @moviesagainst

 Episode 51: Popeye 1980 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3873

Bob's pick this week is Robin Williams bizare musical depicting the iconic sailor man himself. This movie hows a lot going wrong for it but inexplicably turns out to be a whole lot of fun. Editors note: If your new to our show then don't listen to this one first. We had a ton of recording issues, we didn't even get to start recording until midnight. Dustin is fighting a cold and everyone is generally exhausted. Still turned out pretty good for what it was.

 Episode 50: Rocky II 1979 (Rocky 2) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 6812

For our 50th episode we broke our self imposed ban on sequels. Rocky 2 Is the obvious choice for us as it retains most of the heart of the first film but with a bigger budget and directed by Sly himself. From a 1 million dollar budget to a 7 million dollar budget is a big jump but in hollyweird it's still not a lot for a blockbuster. Sylvester Stallone, Carl Weathers, Talia Shire, Burgess Meredith, and burt young all return to reprise their oscar winning roles in this amazing story of what happens after the biggest moment of Rocky's life.Subscribe / Listen Here - moviesagainsttime@gmail.comRSS Feed: moviesagainstTwitter: @moviesagainst

This week Sylvia picked The 1994 anti hero film The Shadow, starring Alec Baldwin supported by John Lone, Penelope Ann Miller, Sir Ian McKellen, Johnathon Winters, Peter Boyle, and Tim Curry. While Sylvia may have been watching through the veil of nostalgia, Dustin and Bob had other ideas on how well this movie worked. We discuss the missed opportunity of a Bruce Wayne / Batman film starring Alec Baldwin. How well Alec Baldwin could adapt to a live action Dark Knight Returns film, some Desperado talk. and much more including the in depth retrospective on the film itself.  Please follow us on SPotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher or anywhere you get your podcasts, if you have time, we would love it if you could leave us a review to help us grow.Email: moviesagainsttime@gmail.comInsta: @moviesagainstTwitter: @moviesagainst

 Episode 48: The Frighteners 1996 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 6077

Peter Jackson's 1996 horror comedy may have been saddled with terrible marketing and incorrect release time along with early CGI being what it was but all that being said Michael J Fox pulls a great movie out of this one that many might have missed over the years.

This week was Dustin's pick, Jim Carrey's ADHD superhero The Mask had first class special effects and a young half proven and hungry lead alongside the 20 year old Cameron Diaz on her first film. The fun and cartoony adaption of the gritty Dark Horse comic by the same name was all it took for the great Siskel and Ebert to do an about face and fall in love with Jim Carrey after there double thumbs down for his performance in Ace Ventura Pet detective and cement Carrey as a legitimate actor.
