Every third Sunday of June, we dedicate one day to the men in our lives who picked us up when we fell, taught us to throw a baseball, worked the grill in rain, sleet, and snow, and took us to see every Van Damme, Seagal, and Police Academy movie ever made. Father's Day is our chance to thank the dads, grandpas, and double grandpas that have watched, and continued to watch over us. So today we'll dust off our extensive VHS collection of the 80s greatest films and hand select some 80s movies that strike the exact right cord as we build the perfect Father's Day 80s Watch List. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the adult son who won't move out of my basement, Max Sanders. And with that, let's celebrate Father's Day!
80s Dream Date

80s Dream Date

2022-06-1401:02:22

After three weeks of nothing but Top Gun, we felt it was time to explore our more sensitive side. The ladies of the eighties truly captured our hearts. With hundreds of love stories that include first dates, first kisses, and special moments, it's not easy to pick a favorite. So instead of picking one, we'll smash them all together and see what we get. Today on Buzzn The Tower we'll hand pick our favorite crushes, first dates, moments, and kisses and create our 80s Dream Date. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Farmer Ted to my Sam, Max Sanders. And with that, let's make a date!
Top Gun: Maverick (2022)

Top Gun: Maverick (2022)

2022-06-0701:15:32

The belated movie sequel is a terrifying proposition. It starts with a movie you love and ends decades later with broken promises and a disgusting taste in your mouth. Don't believe me? Go watch Caddyshack 2, Dumb and Dumberer, Saturday Night Fever, Return To The Blue Lagoon, Son Of The Mask, Basic Instinct 2, Blues Brothers 2000, Return To Oz, or The Godfather Part III. But none of those movies had the potential to break our hearts more than Top Gun: Maverick. So after years of rumors, development, and delays, the day of judgement has arrived. In a rare departure from our usual programming, Buzzn The Tower will dedicate an entire episode to a movie not made in the 1980s, and no I'm not talking about Point Break. Today on Buzzn The Tower we'll give you our live reaction to Top Gun: Maverick. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always, the disappointing sequel to my blockbuster original, Max Sanders. And with that, talk to me Max!
Todays episode, Rewatching & Recasting Top Gun Part 2 Last week on part one, we engaged below the hard deck. This week we pick up were we left off, in a dog fight! Slowly but surely we'll continue to discuss Top Gun, and also provide our thoughts on recasting the characters with other actors from the 1980s! Today on Buzzn The Tower, we finish what we started as we rewatch and recast one of our favorite movies ever. Top Gun. I'm Mo Shapiro, and joining me as always, the Maverick to my Viper, Max Sanders. And with that...
On May 16, 1986 the a movie was released that forever changed the Navy, fighter pilots, and volleyball. Names like Don Simpson, Jerry Bruckheimer, Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, and Kenny Loggins, were forever cemented into the foundation of 80s film. The purpose of this movie was to teach the lost art of awesomeness and insure that a handful movie watchers who saw the film had the the best experience possible. They succeeded. Today, people call it a classic. But the fans call it: TOP GUN Today on Buzzn The Tower, which in no way is legally affiliated with Top Gun and whose name and likeness is in no way a copyright violation as it is a parody of the original, we will be rewatching & recasting Top Gun. Scene by scene we'll make our case for the TOP GUN plaque, occasionally stopping to recast the main roles with other actors and actresses from the 1980s I'm Mo Shapiro, and joining me as always Slider to my Maverick, Max Sanders and with that…
80s Movie Dogs

80s Movie Dogs

2022-05-1701:07:36

Before Marley & Me, Homeward Bound, Beethoven, and Air Bud, there was an explosion of films starring man's best friend. And even when our favorite ruffers weren't headlining the kiosk, they often stole the show. Let us not forget if not for the brave sacrifice of a sheepdog mutt named Einstein, Marty would have never time traveled. And Jaws may have scared us from swimming, but a St. Bernard named Cujo made dry land just as scary. The 80s gave us memorable puppy performances. Today on Buzzn The tower, we'll talk about our favorite 80s movie dogs, because if there's one things we love more than the 80s, it's fluffy puppers! I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Fox to my Hound, Max Sanders and with that...
Whether your prime directives are to serve the public trust or protect the innocent...dead or alive you're coming with me! Police not only play a pivotal role in keeping the peace and protecting the innocent, they also are the backbone of a whole lotta 80s movies. So with that in mind, what if we took the best cops from the best 80s movies and made the best police force around? Today on Buzzn The Tower we'll do exactly that. Piece by piece we'll construct a police force that Commandant Lassard would be proud to see. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always, the Nordberg to my Frank Drebin, Max Sanders. And with that...
What do Carol Brady and Cersei Lannister have in common? A thirst for blood? No. They would do anything for their children. A mother's love is as strong as the Force, as dangerous as crossing the streams, and as mystical as Gwildor's Cosmic Key. All generations have paid homage to the matriarch in film and television. But the 80s, well they did it with style! Today on Buzzn The Tower we will build the perfect 80s movie mom, borrowing from our favorite big screen mothers. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the man who will keep me from crying for the next sixty minutes, Max Sanders. And with that, Happy Mother's Day!
80s Movie Fantasy Draft

80s Movie Fantasy Draft

2022-04-2601:12:00

As a lifelong Detroit Lions fan I can tell you two things are absolutely true. One, this is our year. Two, next year is our year. But regardless of the historic success your franchise has (or lack thereof) there is always one time a year where a Super Bowl feels within reach and that my friends is the NFL draft! So with that in mind, Buzzn The Tower has decided to honor the occasion by holding an 80s Movie Fantasy Draft. The as always is to win. There will be rules, strategy, questionable decisions, and in the end two lineups going head to head as the best collection of 80s movies ever drafted. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Mel Kiper to my Todd McShay, Max Sanders. And with that, you're on the clock.
Labyrinth

Labyrinth

2022-04-1901:10:27

Directed by Jim Henson, executive produced by George Lucas, starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly. Yet despite that lineup, a total commercial flop that broke the heart of it's creator. Labyrinth is the dictionary definition of a cult classic and luckily Jim Henson lived long enough to see how much people truly loved his dark fairytale. Today on Buzzn The Tower, we'll make our way through the Labyrinth to the castle beyond the Goblin City. It doesn't look that far.. It's further than you think...time is short I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Hoggle to my Sarah, Max Sanders. And with that, set the clock to thirteen hours and let's get after it!
On episode 28 of Buzzn The Tower, we pulled a Freak Friday with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. We asked and answered a seemingly simple question; which movie, if any, could we switch these action hero Gods and still make it work? Today we're back at it, but instead of talking muscles, we're talking bones...funny bones that its, wocka wocka wocka! On today's episode we'll look at 80s catalogs of two comedy giants, John Candy and Tom Hanks, and see if we can pull a Parent Trap with their most beloved characters. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Josh Baskin to my Chet Ripley, Max Sanders. And with that, let's get swapping!
80s Movie Fan Theories

80s Movie Fan Theories

2022-04-0501:01:41

The briefcase in Pulp Fiction contains Marsellus Wallace's soul. Also, Jules in Pulp Fiction is in fact Nick Fury. Elsa and Anna's parents washed up on an island and before they passed away gave birth to a little boy, named Tarzan. Jack from Titanic is a time traveler. Jar Jar Binks was in fact a Sith Lord. The internet is littered with fan theories about our favorite movies. But when you start digging in to the flicks from 80-89, you really find some tin foil hat gems! Today on Buzzn The Tower Max and I explore the far reaches of the interweb (mostly Reddit), and unearth our favorite 80s fan theories. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the nonsensical explanation to my wild theory, Max Sanders. And with that, let's dive in!
Recasting Young Guns

Recasting Young Guns

2022-03-2901:04:52

Every single piece of historical knowledge I have about the Wild West is from two movies; Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Young Guns. And while watching Billy The Kid wreak havoc on the San Dimas Mall was fun, Young Guns probably did a better job of retelling the adventure of William H. Bonney and the Lincoln County War. Following the blueprint of The Outsiders, The Breakfast Club, and Stand By Me, Young Guns was more than a history lesson, it was another radical 80s ensemble cast. It is that very cast that we will be experimenting with. On today's episode we will recast Young Guns using actors and actresses from the 1980s. I'm Mo Shapiro, and joining me in the spirit world today is Max Sanders, and with that...
Kiss, marry, kill? What would you take to a deserted island? Which of the five senses would you give up? What super power would you have if you could only have one? What would your three wishes be if you found the lamp? What moment would you go back to, in time, if you had a time machine? And of course, would you rather? All of these binary decision games are responsible for laughs, tears, and occasionally dry heaving from disgust. Today on Buzzn The Tower we take everything we know about 80s movies and everything we know about each other, and create our own version of Would You Rather, 80s Edition! I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always, the kill on my kiss, marry, kill list, Max Sanders. And with that, would you rather?
Last week we cranked up the action dial to eleven and set the world on fire with thirteen of our favorite one-liners from 80s action films. This week we pick up where we left off and pin down twelve more. So strap in, because your diplomatic immunity, dead or alive, is all out of bubble gum. Today on Buzzn The Tower, we somehow come up with twelve more of our favorite 80s action movie one-liners. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always, the cure to my disease Max Sanders. And with that, let's get into some action!
The one-liner is the pièce de résistance of any worthy action flick. Need some evidence? Try imagining Air Force One, 300, or Avengers: Endgame without the lines "get off my plane", "this is Sparta", "I am Ironman". As is always the case, the movies of the 1980s set the bar for the intense action Hiku. Today on Buzzn The Tower, we explore our twenty five favorite 80s action movie one-liners. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the S.O.B. who is dug in like an Alabama tick, Max Sanders. And with that, you got time to duck?
Batman

Batman

2022-03-0101:17:56

With the theatrical premier of The Batman hitting theatres this week, what better time to hop into our hot tub time machine and visit the summer of 1989. And while I'm sure Robert Pattinson will make Ben Affleck proud, who made Will Arnett proud, who made Christian Bale proud, who made George Clooney proud, who made Val Kilmer proud, who made Adam West proud, today the only Batman we'll be talking about is Michael Keaton. On today's episode we'll dive into the movie that changed all the rules and set a new bar comic book adaptations...the one, the only, Batman. I'm Mo Shapiro, and joining me as always the Jack Napier to my Carl Grissom, Max Sanders. And with that...Max you are my number one guy!
Favorite 80s Movie Tropes

Favorite 80s Movie Tropes

2022-02-2201:09:05

Damsel in distress, journey of the reluctant hero, one last job, vengeance, coming of age, saving the planet from destruction. There are no shortage of film tropes throughout all decades, but the 80s had something special. A cliché, a story, a trope that just felt like the manifestation of acid washed jeans, Hi-C Ecto Cooler, and Ronal Reagan. Today on Buzzn The Tower we list our favorite 80s movie tropes. Clichés that appeared in abundance and worked each and every time. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Daniel LaRusso, Luke Skywalker, Frank Dux to my Mr. Myagi, Yoda, Tanaka, Max Sanders. And with that, let's talk about 80s movie tropes!
Recasting Road House

Recasting Road House

2022-02-1501:26:43

In 1989, Director Rowdy Herrington...no really his first name was Rowdy, put together a little flick by the name of Road House. The story was simple enough. A quaint watering hole called the Double Deuce needed a cooler, a local doctor needed a lover, and a small town needed a hero. Road House won eighteen Oscars and a copy of it is preserved both in the Library Of Congress and The Smithsonian Institution. But even if that weren't true, which it certainly is, Road House exists as a reminder of what the eighties were all about! Today on Buzzn The Tower we temp fait once again by having the audacity to recast Road House, only using actors and actresses from the 1980s. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Mijo to my Wade Garrett, Max Sanders. And with that...
Favorite 80s Movie Couples

Favorite 80s Movie Couples

2022-02-0801:18:20

With Valentine's Day approaching at Ludicrous Speed, we have been forced to tap into our rarely used sensitive side and talk about love. But don't worry because just like the grandpa in The Princess Bride said, they'll be fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, commercial breaks, fan spotlights, Max getting under my skin, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles. Today on Buzzn The Tower in honor of the mushiest time of year, we're gonna chat about our favorite 80s movie couples. The kind of happily ever after that makes you smile and warms the coldest of cold hearts. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Officer to my Gentlemen, Max Sanders. And with that...
