Tango & Cash
“Rambo is a PODCAST.” The gang returns for a surprisingly contentious episode over the 1989 buddy-cop classic, Tango & Cash! The gang is severely and unevenly split over the enjoyment of this movie, we’re bothered by the villain’s obsession with rodents, and we learn the tumultuous and insane story of the film’s unhinged producer, Jon Peters.

The Last Boy Scout
"This is the '90s. You can't just go around PODCASTING people. You have to say something cool first." The gang celebrates the upcoming Super Bowl with Bruce Willis’s football-adjacent 1991 buddy cop action comedy, The Last Boy Scout! We’re surprised that this is kind of a good movie, are baffled by Kent’s ridiculous and inconsistent villain danger rating, and are amused by John’s increasing irritability and aspirations to write a screenplay.

Jingle All The Way
“What do I need the PODCAST for, I’ve got the real Turbo Man at home!” The gang is feeling the Christmas cheer as Arnold Schwarzenegger and 90’s Sinbad scramble to get their children a cherished doll in this festive 1996 classic, Jingle All the Way! We wonder if Arnold actually learned a lesson in this film, if there was a Sinbad genie movie called Kazaam, and the lengths we would go to procure a Turbo Man!

But brick not PODCAST back.” The gang has another Manly Movie “first” with our first flick featuring the Muscles from Brussels himself, Jean-Claude van Damme, in his first starring role: Bloodsport!

"If you come back in, I'll hit you with so many rights you'll be begging for a PODCAST." The gang experiences their first (of hopefully many) Chuck Norris action flick into 1985’s Invasion U.S.A.!

The Running Man
“The year is 2019. The finest men in America don’t run for President. They run for their PODCASTS.” The gang joins the revolution with peak 1980’s Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Stephen King classic — The Running Man.

“Pop quiz, hot PODCAST!” The gang takes an implausibly fast bus ride through a suspiciously traffic-less downtown Los Angeles while reviewing the 1994 action-packed thrill ride: SPEED!
