Red Dawn (1984)

Red Dawn (1984)

2021-07-2801:09:55

No '80s movie library would be complete without "Red Dawn," the surprisingly violent movie that pitted American high school kids against a communist invasion, debuted the PG-13 rating, and turned Shat The Movies into a warzone.  While Ash and Gene blast the laughably serious performances and meandering plot, Big D valiantly mounts a counterassault based mostly on Cold War hysteria and a cast that includes Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Jennifer Grey, Lea Thompson, Harry Dean Stanton, Powers Boothe (minus the mustache), C. Thomas Howell, and Ron O'Neal. Along the way, the Shat Crew battles over child abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and audience abuse. They also discuss re-education camp security, a deleted "love scene," mystery supplies, and whether "Red Dawn" was a call to arms or an anti-war movie disguised so well as a pro-war movie that it just made American kids want to go to war. Stay tuned for the wipe scores at the end. Things get bloody.

Robot Jox (1990)

Robot Jox (1990)

2021-07-2001:09:52

Few sci-fi movies are so shat-tacular that people accuse them of sinking the studios that made them, but "Robot Jox" isn't your average movie. Described by it's co-writer as, "a child who started out well and then sustained brain damage," this 1990 cult classic nevertheless won the hearts of a few rabid fans, including Shat The Movies mega-donor Jon M. If you like towering mechs doing battle, "Robot Jox" got it. If you like post-apocalyptic worlds, this is the movie for you. Odd wardrobe choices? You bet. Faithful adaptations of Greek epics? Might wanna check with Ash on that one. From chauvinism to chainsaw wieners to referees who make FIFA look fair, "Robot Jox" really has something for everyone. Plus you get to see the worst use of a stunt double in any major motion picture. Crash and burn!

If Looks Could Kill (1991)

If Looks Could Kill (1991)

2021-07-1701:00:53

I've you've ever wondered why Richard Grieco never made it on the big screen, this 1991 box office flop might be to blame. But was "If Looks Could Kill" really all that bad? The supporting cast is fantastic, the parody of James Bond films is a lot of fun, the sex appeal is there, and the memorable one-liners keep you smiling.  But this movie is far from perfect. Grieco's face looks rubbery, he's in his mid-20s, and the plot really doesn't make sense. Who sends their kid to France for failing French?  Hear why Ash thinks Tom Cruise is the last true action star, why Gene shaved his arms, and why Big D made a trip to the public library in this edition of "Shat The Movies."

The Seventh Sign (1988)

The Seventh Sign (1988)

2021-07-1401:02:18

Shat The Movies super-supporter Emmett is back with a rare genre of film: apocalyptic religious horror pregnancy porn. "The Seventh Sign" features a young Demi Moore playing the most active mom-to-be in cinematic history, Jurgen Prochnow from "Das Boot" playing (spoiler alert) Jesus, and Michael Biehn from "The Terminator,"  "Aliens," and "Tombstone" once again refused the hero's role. Big D takes a crash course in Biblical interpretation. Gene begs for a remake. And Ash cringes at the Hall of Souls. Along the way, we also discuss hot fish, why movie doctors don't try very hard, how easy it is to infiltrate an execution, renting rooms to strangers, and how tough the Seven Seals of God should be.

Platoon (1986)

Platoon (1986)

2021-07-0701:08:05

Oliver Stone gave the '80s and '90s some of their greatest films, so it's about time Shat The Movie dove into his catalog. And what better introductory film than "Platoon," a movie that combined Stone's artistry and military experience in a brilliant reflection on the Vietnam War. In this episode, Big D and Ash review the movie and the war through personal tales and family history. Gene digs into the social and racial aspects of the conflict, and the Shat Crew celebrates a knockout cast at its best. Other topics include the definition of masculinity, how to tell combat veterans from glory thieves, and why "Forrest Gump" is overrated.

The Great Outdoors (1988)

The Great Outdoors (1988)

2021-06-2901:01:14

Summer vacations, cabin trips, lakeside living, nature walks, and spending time with family are enough to make the most cynical Shat The Movies listener nostalgic. On this Fathers Day recording, we visit John Candy's "The Great Outdoors," a classic '80s comedy that holds a dear place in many a heart. Brothers Adam, Josh, and John R. commissioned "The Great Outdoors" in honor of their late father and the childhood memories they built with him. Big D related to being a dad. Ash contrasted the idyllic mood of the movie with her own childhood vacations. And Gene was taken back to his summer fantasies of meeting a mean girl in a denim jacket. Of course, the Shat Crew also covers The 96er, the endless animal gags, Dan Aykroyd's oddly enjoyable performance, and bear dumps. But the real meat of this movie is laughing at jokes and situations that work BECAUSE we've seen them—and lived them— so many times.  SUBSCRIBE & FOLLOW Android: http://shatthemovies.com/android Apple/iTunes: http://shatthemovies.com/itunes Social Media: Twitch, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat Website: http://shatthemovies.com/ HELP SUPPORT THE PODCAST Donate with Paypal: http://shatthemovies.com/paypal Donate With Venmo: https://venmo.com/shatpodcasts Get Podcast Merchandise: http://shatthemovies.com/shop Shop Amazon With Our Affiliate Link: https://www.amazon.com/?tag=shatmovies-20 Sponsor's Listener Survey: http://shatthemovies.com/survey Leave an iTunes Review: http://shatthemovies.com/review Vote for our Next Movies: http://shatthemovies.com/vote Feeds & Social Media: http://shatthemovies.com/subscribe-and-follow Leave a Voicemail: (914) 719-SHAT - (914) 719-7428 Email: hosts@shatthemovies.com Listen to our TV Podcasts: https://shatontv.com/shat-on-podcasts Theme Song - Die Hard by Guyz Nite: https://www.facebook.com/guyznite
"Back to the Future Part III" is a master class in how to make a time-travel comedy. It's a love letter to Old Hollywood Westerns. And it's the final note in a legendary trilogy. Guest host Kevin Brackett (Reel Spoilers podcast) joins Ash and Gene this week to discuss the countless callbacks, outstanding action, and brilliant performances that elevated what some consider the weakest of the Back to the Future series. We get into Christopher Lloyd's puppy-dog brown eyes, the Back to the Future theme park ride, elaborate dioramas, the movie's "Gilligan's Island" tendencies, Gene's Two-DeLorean Conundrum, and a hotly debated ending that involves a small child pointing at his genitals.

Before Tom Sizemore and Mickey Rourke made flops of their careers, they starred in one of the most epic box office failures of the '90s: "Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man." Was the world just not ready for an action comedy that played out like a comic book, or is this movie truly rushed and sloppy?  The Shat Crew was fully divided on this forgotten film, but not in the ways you might expect. A few things we did agree on: Don Johnson is a charming S.O.B., Harley-Davidsons are garbage motorcycles, Daniel Baldwin was cheated by the gene pool, and sometimes you need to just let a movie end. Listener Lachlan H. commissioned this cinematic collection of life advice from all the way down in Australia, reminding us "it's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool."

Student Bodies (1981)

Student Bodies (1981)

2021-06-0254:55

Before there was "Scream" or "Scary Movie, a little movie called "Student Bodies" pioneered the slasher-film spoof. But was it too far ahead of its time, with too few movies to parody? In Dick Ebert's estimation, "two out of eight jokes" are funny in this 1981 trailblazer that made him laugh as a boy. Gene and Ash think that's generous as the Shat Crew discusses The Breather, jokes about the differently abled, and the magic of Malvert. Film commissioner Dan in Park Ridge, IL, makes Shat history with this episode, and we discover the racially charged background of the eggplant.

Internal Affairs (1990)

Internal Affairs (1990)

2021-05-2501:10:41

Most '80s and '90s cop movies are cheesy, unfunny, offensive, unintelligent, or a combination of the four. But 1990's "Internal Affairs" joins "L.A. Confidential" as a rare police drama that delivers on quality and thrills. Sporting the worst haircuts of their careers, Andy Garcia and Richard Gere spent two hours trading lethal glares, filthy innuendo, mind games, and silky fabrics. Of course, "Internal Affairs" had the typical '90s slow-mo shots and hideous sets, but all that was balanced by a buffet of beautiful butts and some forward-thinking filmmaking.  Care to guess the wipe score before listening? We think you'll be surprised.

Johnny Dangerously (1984)

Johnny Dangerously (1984)

2021-05-1801:05:13

An '80s movie doesn't have to be the funniest, the most dramatic, or the most action-packed film we've ever seen to be important. It doesn't even need to be popular.  Sometimes, a movie just needs to bring families together, give us a few chuckles, and bridge the gap between the young mind of a child and the memories of a parent. "Johnny Dangerously" isn't Michael Keaton's best-known film. And it isn't the pinnacle of Amy Heckerling's skills as a director. But it's definitely worth watching.  In the edition, the Shat Crew discusses premarital sex, running gags, eyeliner, John Stamos versus Christian Slater, "Gung Ho" versus "Mr. Mom," and whether crime actually pays.

Some say Paul Newman is the greatest actor of all time. Some say Martin Scorsese is the greatest director of all time. And some say "The Color of Money" is his greatest film.  We are not those people. But the Shat Crew is mature enough to appreciate a film with sets you can smell, jaw-dropping performances, and the magic of a young Tom Cruise.  In this edition, we discuss how "The Color of Money" influenced other gambling movies ("Rounders," anyone?) and brought out Dick Ebert's inner detective. Ash explores the art of the hustle, and Gene defines the line between games and sports. Throw in one of the '80s weirdest montages, an unexpected ending, and the ultimate question of money versus pride, and you'll see why this Academy Award-winning film can be both outstanding and outdated.  SUBSCRIBE & FOLLOW Android: http://shatthemovies.com/android Apple/iTunes: http://shatthemovies.com/itunes Social Media: Twitch, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat Website: http://shatthemovies.com/ HELP SUPPORT THE PODCAST Donate with Paypal: http://shatthemovies.com/paypal Donate With Venmo: https://venmo.com/shatpodcasts Get Podcast Merchandise: http://shatthemovies.com/shop Shop Amazon With Our Affiliate Link: https://www.amazon.com/?tag=shatmovies-20 Sponsor's Listener Survey: http://shatthemovies.com/survey Leave an iTunes Review: http://shatthemovies.com/review Vote for our Next Movies: http://shatthemovies.com/vote Feeds & Social Media: http://shatthemovies.com/subscribe-and-follow Leave a Voicemail: (914) 719-SHAT - (914) 719-7428 Email: hosts@shatthemovies.com Listen to our TV Podcasts: https://shatontv.com/shat-on-podcasts Theme Song - Die Hard by Guyz Nite: https://www.facebook.com/guyznite

Bust out your surfboards and Stunned Mullets, we're going "Back to The Beach" with Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello! This 1987 parody of '60s movies packed in appearances from OJ Simpson, PeeWee Herman, the casts of "Leave It to Beaver" and "Gilligan's Island," Dick Dale, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and the "two dollars" kid from "Better Off Dead."  This edition of Shat The Movies explores the importance of following through on threats, deal breakers in dating, Big D's mall walking, and East Coast vs West Coast beaches. Ash and Big D crush Gene's ideas on parenthood while revealing a fear of losing their identities as they age. Dick body-shames beachgoers and Gene explains why you should seek a partner you fear. Note: Gene survived a car accident 30 minutes before recording this podcast, then proceeded to down a double whiskey.

Happy Gilmore (1996)

Happy Gilmore (1996)

2021-05-0557:17

We owe you an apology. In more than 200 movies, Shat The Movies somehow neglected to select a film starring Adam Sandler. Listener Steve W. decided to make things right by commissioning the 1996 golf comedy classic "Happy Gilmore." Hot on the heels of "Billy Madison," this cameo-filled gut-buster hit the ground running without wasting a minute, made us question what it means to be a winner, championed the everyman, and was endlessly quotable.  Who doesn't love to hate Shooter McGavin? Who doesn't love to love Chubbs? And who ever expected to see Bob Barker kick the crap out of the hero?  "Happy Gilmore" was full of surprises in an era when we thought we'd seen it all. It took a boring game and made it exciting. And it taught each of us to find our happy place.  SUBSCRIBE & FOLLOW Android: http://shatthemovies.com/android Apple/iTunes: http://shatthemovies.com/itunes Social Media: Twitch, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat Website: http://shatthemovies.com/ HELP SUPPORT THE PODCAST Donate with Paypal: http://shatthemovies.com/paypal Donate With Venmo: https://venmo.com/shatpodcasts Get Podcast Merchandise: http://shatthemovies.com/shop Shop Amazon With Our Affiliate Link: https://www.amazon.com/?tag=shatmovies-20 Sponsor's Listener Survey: http://shatthemovies.com/survey Leave an iTunes Review: http://shatthemovies.com/review Vote for our Next Movies: http://shatthemovies.com/vote Feeds & Social Media: http://shatthemovies.com/subscribe-and-follow Leave a Voicemail: (914) 719-SHAT - (914) 719-7428 Email: hosts@shatthemovies.com Listen to our TV Podcasts: https://shatontv.com/shat-on-podcasts Theme Song - Die Hard by Guyz Nite: https://www.facebook.com/guyznite
Innerspace (1987)

Innerspace (1987)

2021-04-2652:06

The '80s gave us two major movies about shrinkage: "Honey, I Shrunk The Kids" and "Innerspace." The former was a wholesome, heartwarming, at times tragic tale of a family sticking together to survive. The latter—a sci-fi jumble of sexy Dennis Quaid, overly complicated tech, annoying Martin Short, and for some reason, a rabbit— is what we're reviewing today. "Innerspace" mixed impressive visual effects that gave us all warm fuzzies as we recalled our days at the science museum. And the chemistry between Short and Quaid led to some feel-good moments. But when Quaid was in Meg Ryan's body after being in her body, then saw his own overly developed child in her womb ... man, what the fuck? You probably haven't seen this movie. You probably won't see this movie. But we did. And we're here to tell you all about it.

We dedicate this episode to The Purple One on the fifth anniversary of his death. And we celebrate “Purple Rain,” a film he made early in his career that encapsulated his essence like a sexy horcrux. This podcast has it all: snakes with hands, David Lee Roth, Morris Day, on-screen fingering, and a very confused Dick Ebert.

Long ago, Roger and Gene begged Shat Nation to commission one of their all-time favorite '90s comedies: "Dirty Work." Heeding the call, listener Jack stepped up and demanded Norm Macdonald have his day in the sun. Today is that day.   But things have turned dark for ol' Norm since his one big shot back in 1998. The world has changed. Humor has changed. Artie Lange's nose has changed. Can a movie filled with gay jokes, hooker jokes, jail rape jokes, and hidden-fish jokes still make us laugh? Surprisingly, yes—but with some caveats.    In this Dirty edition of Shat The Movies, Big D revisits the time he spliced porn into "Speed," Ash longs for Adam Sandler, and the crew discover the real reason Gene rescues animals.   Plus, Gene's hit job on frats and sororities backfires, and Big D's everyman roots ruin the Wipe Score.

Dazed and Confused  (1993)

Dazed and Confused (1993)

2021-04-0601:08:53

Alright, alright, alright — it's time for the movie that put Matthew McConaughey on the map, turned Ben Affleck into a bully, and taught us all to sizzle like bacon. "Dazed and Confused" gave us a '90s indie movie look at 1976 with a drop-dead-gorgeous cast, hot muscle cars, and one-liners that made their way into all of our lives.   This episode taught the Shat Crew a lot about ass-paddlings, high school sororities, and Texas sports culture. And it reminded us of magical keggers, the older kids who helped us fit in, and what it was like to stay up all night with what felt like an eternity of life ahead of you.   Was Wooderson an ephebophile or a righteous dude? Was life in the '70s better than life today? What did Ash do with boys in the Louisiana swamps? Find out in this edition of Shat The Movies.

Mortal Kombat (1995)

2021-04-0201:00:35

Before you watch the 2021 remake of "Mortal Kombat," test your might (and intestinal fortitude) with the 1995 original. The Shat Crew settles all the big Mortal Kombat questions: Is Scorpion better than Sub Zero? What exactly are the tournament rules? Where did they find these costumes? And is there tea bagging in Outworld? While Ash praises the thumping soundtrack, Gene gripes about the laughable martial arts, and Big D searches in vain for justice. We also talk trust falls, Christopher Lambert, and cartwheels. Discover how Cameron Diaz dodged a bullet, why nobody should be afraid of Goro, and who the hell Art is in this special edition commissioned by our Shappy Hour viewers.

I'm not too sure that Francis Ford Coppolla would be delighted to discover that he did not, in fact, direct Godfather 2. From a film podcast? Really?

Ashley has one good quality, she is a Ken Follet fan. Other than that, we appreciate the effort. Ashley needs to go. She is probably nice, but I just don't need her oversexualization of my favorite movies.

Fun fact..when Camron was trying to think of ways to make The Terminator looks more robotic and menacing, he drove around LA to find locations which had a certain type of street light. That street light gave off a blue hue on film which gave Arnold more a “glowing effect” in some shots. Looks for it sometime, it looks great, but also shows the lengths that Camron would go to to figure out certain shots with no budget.

Technically they don’t play Van Halen “Humans Being” not “Shine On” when they ride into town. It gets played when they’re chasing a tornado through a corn field. No music is playing when they drive into the small town when they go recover Aunt Meg.

The song is called “Lethal Weapon” by Honeymoon Suite. It was a hit song, and a friend of mine actually plays the keyboards on that song. It was the 80’s ballad type song. The sax is played by David Sanborn and yes, Eric Clapton wrote the soundtrack along with Sting on vocals

I do like you guys but have to sometimes question your credentials. Big D referring to 'Paul Newman' jumping over a fence in another escape film. Just makes me question the credibility sometimes. Keep up the good work though!

The only reason I ever watch this movie is for Clancy Brown and the Queen soundtrack.

Glad to know I'm not the only one whose first memory of this movie and the last memory I have of watching it are polar opposites.

Great episode as usual. And what a great coincidence that the Shat Crew and Dana Buckler both released an episode on Over the Top in the same week.
