0096: The Transformers: The Movie

Week 2 of nostalgia season and it’s Sam’s choice, the 1986 animated classic The Transformers: The Movie, a film Sam has been pitching repeatedly since episode 2 of the podcast, and finally we get around to watching it.

Next week Chris’ pick rounds out the nostalgia season, its Short Circuit! Nice! Watch a trailer here!

0095: The Running Man

0095: The Running Man

It’s the start of nostalgia season! This week Alex plucks a film from his childhood to see if it still holds up, and predictably Arnold Schwarzenegger is involved. In 1987’s The Running Man 2019 is a totalitarian hellscape where TV controls the world and the masses are oppressed by a minority, getting their kicks watching innocents throw themselves into a violent nightmare for a chance at redemption. Its only marginally less depressing than the real 2019 etc.

Next week we visit Sam’s childhood by finally getting to watch The Transformers: The Movie. Watch a trailer here!
