'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
What?! We finished another year?! That's amazing!
And what a line-up to feature in our final month of 1981. Jane Fonda and Kris Kristofferson flirt and try to keep the entire world economy from going belly-up, Richard Dreyfuss argues for his right to die, and Chevy Chase gets supernatural powers from magic cocaine. Wait, that can't be right, can it?
You want to see why Andy Kaufman didn't have much of a film career? You want to see another Jane Fonda film? Wait, what is it with you and Jane Fonda? Should we be worried? We've got Fred Astaire in his weirdest role ever, and we've got Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon in probably the most depressing duet of their long collaboration.
But, hey, we've also got Warren Beatty's REDS, so it's all good.
Let's do this thing, kids! Bye, 1981! See you soon, 1982!
