'80s All Over
About This Show
Scott Weinberg and Drew McWeeny have set out to review every major film of the '80s, month by month, on a new bi-weekly podcast that aims to erase the nostalgia that so often clouds any real conversation about the decade's movies.
Most Recent Episode
Not one but two comedies about the homeless or the mentally ill this week, because in Reagan's America, who didn't find an unbalanced street person delightful?
Scott and Drew try to figure out how films like CHU CHU AND THE PHILLY FLASH and HONKY TONK FREEWAY got made, they talk about the lack of charisma that is Chuck Norris, they discuss the weird and often upsetting sexual mores of early '80s comedies, and they debate the relative merits of STUDENT BODIES. We've got early films from Australian icons John Duigan and Peter Weir, we've got Kathleen Turner's movie debut, we've got conservatives and liberals debating on the Supreme Court, and we've got one of the biggest animation experiments of the decade.
Stick to the roads and stay off the moors, lads... it's August of 1981.
