Madhouse, indeed. The boys go back to the future this week to review the glorious original Planet of the Apes. Fresh after a recent viewing of the latest Apes movie (in an actual theater) our hosts were inspired to go back to the Forbidden Zone to re-watch this iconic sci-fi classic and, more importantly, take a few more shots at the Tim Burton abo…

Angie's eyebrow is the real star here. A mish-mosh video game movie set to Matrix music and a lot of titillation. (Pun definitely intended). Tomb Raider is a neat example of how Hollywood came kicking and screaming into the female action lead era. Is it good? No. Has it redeemed itself over time? Also no. To conclude the "Trail of Tears" mini-serie…

Who knew the bass player from Dogstar was also an actor? This time the boys go back to the Y2K era to relook at this innovative sci-fi epic. Bullets are flying and the techno is thumping, but that's not enough for one of our grumpy hosts, who seems to have some legitimate, yet petty issues with this one. What a jerk! Stick around for the conclusion…

Return to sender. Think of a movie you dont really like, add 38 minutes, and you have the Postman. The boys start their "The Trail of Tears" mini-series this week with a look back at yet another post-apocolyptic world saved by baby Jesus Kevin Costner. He writes, directs, stars, and even sings the ending credits song! Way to hog the movie, K! Stick…

One episode couldn't do this one justice, so the boys present a special two-parter in order to squeeze in all the pew pew pews, the red sateen, the tiny tiny Hawk Men shorts, and more cheese than we deserve. Plus, we share our takes on some famous ambiguous endings in film.Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia

He'll save every one of us!! The boys finally cover our favorite 80s HBO mainstay, Flash Gordon. Flash and the gang face off against the glorious villain Ming the Merciless (who could easily take Thanos's lunch money). There's ridiculous special effects, very short Hawk-Men shorts, and a Queen soundtrack that will crush your face. We promise this w…

We're throwing in an extra "episode" this week to fill the hole created by our new release schedule. Shiny new episodes start in a few days, but in the meantime, we humbly ask all y'all to revisit this very special episode in the show's history. A personal favorite of both your hosts, this review of the glorious Superman 2 really represented a turn…

Arnold takes out the intergalactic trash in this jungle epic. Half action movie, half monster movie, Predator laid the groundwork for the modern summer blockbuster (remember them?) There's biceps at every turn and kickass performances from Jesse the Body, Carl Weathers, and just about everyone else. To make things even more fun, super-cool @mollsmu…

Pain don't hurt, but this movie does (in all the best ways). Patrick Swayze's hair stars as the shirtless, chain-smoking philosophy major who beats up a lot of rowdy beer drinkers. And if that wasn't enough, there's Sam Eliot's moustache, Kelly Lynch, Ben Gazarra, and wrestler Terry Funk all in a plot that would make Shakespeare jealous. Plus this …

We're back in the theater this week to take another look at Tron, the much maligned but visionary tale from 1982 Disney. The first film to employ computer generated graphics, this innovative movie paved the way for Jar Jar, Green Lantern, and the Scorpion King. Wait, what? The boys also talk about their other favorite horrible CGI moments and 80s w…

In this week's grumpy nugget episode, the boys present the first in a series of episodes dedicated to the phenomenon of nostalgia and it's impact on modern pop culture. But don't let that pretentious concept fool you, what they're really doing is goofing on all the recent trends ripping off stuff done years ago and claiming it for themselves. And w…

In ancient times, Hollywood made grown up crime thrillers and released them in theaters. I know, right? This week the boys go back revisit an already old Harrison Ford in one of his best, yet least talked about performances as the wrongly accused doctor being pursued by Tommy Lee Jones. An action blockbuster that never needed its plot summarized on…

The boys get soft this week and review a romantic comedy for Valentines and the awkwardness in palpable. Turns out this genre is not as cringe as they were lead to believe. It helps that Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan knock this amazing screenplay out of the park. Fall in love all over again as the boys talk about romance, loss, and Big League Chew for…

Good? No. Bad? Sure, but who cares? The boys open season 4 with one of their most-feared attempts, the fourth installment of Batman. Clooney, Uma, and Arnold serve more cheese than any movie goer should ever have to endure. Most critics think they're super clever ragging on this one. Congratulations you're a genius. We choose to embrace and behold.…

The boys squeeze into their high school prom tuxedos to hand out awards for the most notorious achievements from last season 's movie picks. There's pomp, circumstance, and more wigs than anyone should ever ask for. Do not dismiss this as a pretentious, self-serving clip show. We implore you. This season 3 retrospective honors all our new friends t…

This time were going back 40 years to look at income inequality, racial prejudice, and corporate greed. Thankfully none of these things exist anymore. Aykrord and Murphy rise above a script that shows its age a bit. Plus there's men in gorilla suits and Jamie Lee Curtis! So put your Kool's out on the rug immediately and check this one out.…

Ring in the New Year with joy, whimsy, and diabetes. Gene Wilder's legendary performance almost makes you forget most of the deeply disturbing content. Let's put 5 kids in a chocolate factory and make sure they all come out traumatized. Great kid movie! Plus, we also talk about the most unnecessary movie remakes and sequels. No Golden Ticket requir…

How do you get more nerdy than two podcasters talking about Hobbits for an hour? Easy. You get three. @mollsmusings joins us this time as we gush about this phenomenal, game-changing fantasy epic. Listen to our feeble attempts to find any criticisms and we also cover our other favorite rewatchable movies. Fly, you fools!…

For this year's holiday episode, your boys do their best to provide a snark-free review of this modern classic. So grab the Worlds Best Cup of Coffee and snuggle with us. Plus we talk about our favorite retro presents and candy! Turns out nothing from the 70s was good for you. Link in the bio. #elfmovie #willferrell #zooeydeschanel #jamescaan #jonf…

Come to the coast, have a few laughs. This week the boys go back to Nakatomi plaza to revisit this classic 80s action original that has somehow morphed into a Christmas movie(?) We don't know about that, but what we do know we like seeing vaguely European terrorists get what's coming to them by big bad Bruce. Plus we talk about our other favorite n…

Our Thanksgiving turkey for you. The boys go into the wayback to review this 70s cerebral scifi response to Star Wars. You've got Shatner's girdle, the follically-challenged Persis Khambatta (yeah, baby!), and the rest of the original cast for this slow burn but weirdly complete movie. Can a Star Wars fan and a Star Trek fan survive the same podcas…

We take a new, soggy look at this maligned, yet recently redeemed 90s blockbuster. Is it a great movie? No. Is it better than we remember? Also no. Well, maybe. Yes. We cant really decide but we enjoyed revisiting this anyway just to see Costner's earrings and his iconic opening scene.Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia

We wrap up our Halloween series with this extra dreamy special horror film. The crispy Freddy Krueger breaks out the cutlery and makes short work of a bunch of 80s kids, among them cute little Johnny Depp. The nostalgia hits hard as discuss this quintessential 80 horror classic as well as our favorite Halloween candy. Things get extra spooky as we …

As the title suggests, this is a heartfelt family film is a really inspirational tale. A triumph of the human chainsaw. Surprisingly less gory than you would think, this extremely well made horror film has set the standard for nearly 50 years. We're not entirely sure that's a good thing, but luckily, @aron_gagliardo is along to help us sort it out.…

Our special Halloween series continues with this mega campy 90's adaptation of Dracula. Gary Oldman suffers though his inadequate castmates in the visually heavy tale. The accents are wonderfully awful and Keanu's mystery hair makes this one a real joy for the gang. It's extra spooky fun because our Alaskan homesteading warrior queen @mollsmusings …

We kick off our seasonal Halloween series with the ultimate midnight movie. Bruce Campbell's subtle, nuanced performance is only matched by gallons of blood and entrails for all. Fiercely original and creative, this groundbreaking movie has been a horror benchmark for generations. Demons, flying eyeballs, and Member's Only jackets should be enough …

Justin & Mike dust off their lab coats this week to look back at this iconic Mel Brooks comedy from 1974. Non-stop jokes and sight gags aplenty. Plus the boys share the movies they saw back in the70s they had no business seeing that young. It's embarrassing, painful, and hilarious. Just like this podcast.…

Bruce Willis & Ben Affleck are tasked to save the world and it only gets more plausible from there. The boys have a laugh riot riffing thru this quintessential 90s movie. We promise you'll never eat animal crackers again. Did we mention there's an Evel Kneivel canyon jump in space?Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia

Imagine not wanting every part of your life available to the public. Stupid, right? Luckily, we're way more civilized today. Jim Carrey delivers an amazing performance without even once talking with his butt. The gang is so inspired, they talk about their own favorite reality shows and embarrass themselves accordingly. Our favorite Alaskan warrior …

We celebrate our 50th episode by looking back at this iconic 80s classic that started an entire nerd subculture that still thrives to this day. Things get a little spooky, but luckily our friend @aron_gagliardo joins us for the bustin'. The gang also talks about some of their other favorite ghost movies and are judged and ridiculed appropriately.…

This is that one where Rocky beats the odds. Also, Mr.T and Hulk Hogan take a break from their London stage careers to lend a hand. So you get all of that plus Frank Stallone's disco soundtrack? Not sure why you would ask for anything else. Plus the boys are so inspired, they discuss their favorite sports comeback movies.…

Bruce and Brad Pitt's middle finger chew some major scenery in this amazing time travel fever dream of a movie. There's plenty to admire in this mid-90s cautionary tale plus Justin and Mike use their own time machines to discuss the movies they'd go back to rescue.Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia

This time we're taking a fresh look at this much maligned sci-fi epic. Could it possibly be as bad as we remember? Probably. Is it as bad as today's bad movies? Better question. We're already overthinking it. Just listen and laugh, rat brain!Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia

This week we're looking at the sweetest thing to come out of the 80s since Skittles. Both charming and quotable, this simple fairy tale is a fan favorite. Are we too grumpy and cynical to still enjoy it? Fortunately we're joined by special guest Dr. K, @pinotjones to help sort it all out. #theprincessbride #robinwright #caryelwes #inconceivable #an…

Hang on to your dingos. This post-apocalyptic action classic set a standard for high speed chases, amazing stunt work, and ass-less leather chaps. Mel talks 16 times and there's a lord Humungus among us. And to make it even better, America's sweetheart @mollsmusings is in the studio this week!Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia

It's Stallone vs Snipes in this 90's sci-fi/action flaming bag of dog doo. The total disregard of human life and public property is proudly on display for all to see. Plus all restaurants in the future are Taco Bell. The horror. Have a listen only to see how much Justin and Mike can take.Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia
  continue reading
 
Arnold does his best to keep this one watchable, but even he cant compete with the dinosaurs playing in the theater next-door. There's a super annoying kid, a lot of explosions, and MC Hammer though. So there's that. Come listen and Mike and Justin continue their Season 3 Self Punishment Roadshow.Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia
  continue reading
 
The guys celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the last real Star Wars movie with @aron_gagliardo this week. There's metal bikinis, hookah-smoking gangsters, build-a-bears, & TRAPS everywhere. Luckily we've got Luke cosplaying as Johnny Cash to save us all.Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia
  continue reading
 
We start Season 3 with a bang. Nic Cage's mullet has never been sweeter in this 90's AF tale about a simple Alabama man making his way home. It's an explosion filled fever dream that really cant be bothered to make sense at any point whatsoever. Good enough for us.Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia
  continue reading
 
Were heading into the bush this week as Anthony Hopkins fights off two bears in the form of a Kodiak and Alec Baldwin. Winner gets Elle McPherson! This one was a little under the radar , but still really fun. The best part is we have @mollsmusings joining us this time to sort it all out!Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia

The boys are tradin' paint with Tom and Nicole this week in this early 90's gas-fueled action epic. There's excitement around every turn not to mention Nicole Kidman's glorious perm. Join Justin & Mike as sort their way through all the traffic.Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia
  continue reading
 
Stallone forgets that Die Hard was already a movie, but we don't care. We got plenty of blammos and smashy smashies this week as we revisit this amazing 90s action movie. Lithgow's scary accent and even more scary hair will keep you hanging on for dear life.Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia
  continue reading
 
The monkeys are sent to do a man's job this week as the boys review this Tim Burton crap-flinging remake. Enjoy a swimsuit model beating up a gorilla, Chuck Heston's gun-heavy cameo, and a cringeworthy interspecies love triangle. Just try not to wake up Mark Wahlberg.Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia
  continue reading
 
The boys are breaking the first two rules this week by actually talking about Fight Club. Brad Pitt and Ed Norton smash their super sexy faces in while Meatloaf struggles to find support for his double D's. If that's not enough to make you listen, we give up.Από τον Grumpy Nostalgia
