Favorites of 2019 – OMRM – ep 67

EEverybody else in the movie world talked about their favorite movies from 2019, so why not the crew from Old Millennials Remember Movies? We’re not just experts in 80s and 90s movies, we’re experts in liking many of the movies other people liked this year! Tyler has been making Top 10 lists for most of his adult life. Angela doesn’t like ranking things, but she’s committed to the cause. She created a whole point system this year! And after Angela Explains It All, even you’ll be convinced of the merits of “Jumanji: The Next Level.” Okay, okay, so “Jumanji” didn’t actually make her list, but there are some surprises… so listen to the podcast! We even say some (somewhat) insightful things about the Capital I Important movies of the year. Tyler and Angela even agree on a few high profile choices. Could it be they even agree on the Best Movie of the Year? Spoiler: Yes. Tyler also shares a few of his super douchey T-Dub Awards, including prizes for Best Music Moment (It’s “Heaven”), Best Scenery Chewing, The “Not as Bad as Advertised” Award, the “So Bad You Have to See It to Believe It” Award, Best Homage to “Back to the Future Part II” and more! Old Millennials Best of 2019 podcast Tyler and Angela each share their Top 10 Films of 2019, as well as some Honorable Mention titles. You can count on some discussion on films like “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” Midsommar," “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” “Parasite,” “Us,” “The Farewell,” “The Irishman,” and Tyler’s beloved “Little Women.” Check out last year's Old Millennials Remember Movies episode on the Best Movies of 2018 HERE!

Little Women 1994 and 2019 – ep 66

EThe 1994 version of “Little Women” is a perfectly competent adaptation of the Louisa May Alcott classic story. Winona Ryder headlines a solid cast as Jo March, and Christian Bale proves he was a solid dreamboat in his formative years. Eric Stoltz a little less so, but hey, he’s trying. Yes, 1994 “Little Women” is just dandy, but then Greta Gerwig decided to make a GD masterpiece with her 2019 version. The writer/director of “Lady Bird” impressively remixes the story and adds modern flare at every turn. Of course ONE Old Millennials Remember Movies host (spoiler: Angela) had to be convinced of the greatness of Gerwig’s “Little Women.” Okay, “convinced” is the wrong word, but Tyler probably loves this new version a little too much. Little Women podcast On this episode, Angela and Tyler discuss their very different histories with the 1994 version, get into some nerdy discussion on narrative structure, ponder the sexual appeal of Timothy Chalamet and try to get to the bottom of why Greta Gerwig decided it was Better to Call Saul. Also, please praise us, because we are 67% sure we pronounced Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh correctly throughout the entire episode. Note: We discuss the 1994 and 2019 “Little Women” throughout, including Gerwig’s bold take on the ending. Save this episode for later if you haven’t seen it yet and don’t want to be spoiled.

Little Women 1994 and 2019 – ep 66

Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi – ep 65 – 1983 plus Rise of Skywalker

EWhat else could possibly be said about "Star Wars" that hasn't been said before? The answer is: Probably nothing! But Tyler and Angela will try in a discussion on "Return of the Jedi" and how it connects to the most recent "Star Wars" installment, "The Rise of Skywalker." Look, "Star Wars" movies have been messy for a long time now, and "Return of the Jedi" proves just how hard it can be to bring a trilogy across the finish line. There's lots of good stuff (lightsaber fights, Ewok traps that would eventually inspire Kevin McCallister, a cool cucumber named Lando Calrissian and the glorious sight of an electrified old man being casually tossed into an endless pit. BUT there are also the seeds of some of George Lucas' worst impulses as a storyteller, probably most apparent in how long "Return of the Jedi" takes to actually get to the point. Go away forever, Jabba the Hutt! And take your weird friends with you! Return of the Jedi podcast In this special episode of the Old Millennials Remember Movies podcast, Tyler and Angela discuss their very different histories with the "Star Wars" franchise. What do we consider to be quintessential "Star Wars" components, and how do the old movies serve as an anchor (and crutch) to J.J. Abrams' latest adventure, "The Rise of Skywalker"? We also talk about the crushing absence of Carrie Fisher in "Episode IX," translating robot blips and beeps and argue about Mark Hamill's series-wide performance as farm boy/Jedi hero/island grump/Force ghost Luke Skywalker. This is a spoiler-filled discussion of the connections between "Return of the Jedi" and "The Rise of Skywalker," so if you haven't seen the new movie, file this away for after you've seen it. Whether you're "Team Last Jedi" or "Team Rise of Skywalker" person, we've got some supportive comments for you. A special shout out to the "Star Wars" maniacs on the Internet. Please don't be too mean to us. Also discussed in this episode: 1917 (2019) The Mandalorian TV series (2019)

While You Were Sleeping – ep 64 – 1995

EJoin us in this "While You Were Sleeping" podcast and have yourself a Sandy New Year! America’s Sweetheart Sandra Bullock stars in “While You Were Sleeping” as a lonely woman who saves a handsome stranger from getting hit by a train, then pretends to be engaged to the guy after he falls into a coma. That’s creepy! But it’s Sandy Bullock, so it’s also charming and adorable. “While You Were Sleeping” takes place in Chicago, and the movie makes sure you know it by showing literally every distinguishable exterior of the city as many times as possible. In fact, “Chicago” is a more prominent character in the opening act than Bill Pullman, who stars as coma guy’s brother/Sandy’s one true love. Once Pullman movie gets in the movie though, prepare to be charmed out of your pants. He’s a freaking dreamboat, folks! While You Were Sleeping Podcast: Is this a holiday movie? Most of the movie takes place the week after Christmas, and a few significant moments happen on New Year’s Eve/Day, including the sudden awakening of coma guy (Peter Gallager, in full goober mode) and the rom-com antics that follow. So why aren’t you watching this movie around the holiday season? Stop watching “Love, Actually,” you monsters! This movie is better! In our Sandy New Year 2020 episode of Old Millennials Remember Movies, Tyler and Angela discuss the white-hot Bullock-Pullman chemistry, the extensive supporting cast of old folks, oversized sweaters and the film’s magic trick of an ending. Seriously, this is a movie about a diabolical liar/stalker, and you want to marry her anyway.

While You Were Sleeping – ep 64 – 1995

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York – Ep 63 – 1992

EMerry Christmas ya filthy animal! Again! Yes, "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York" retreads almost every memorable thing from the original holiday classic, just in a different location. Plus Tim Curry! The McCallister family is back again, including Cheapskate Uncle Frank, future felon Buzz and, of course, Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister. Rather than being left home alone, Kevin follows the wrong dude onto an airplane (still plausible in this day-and-age, by the way, assuming the gate attendants are as incompetent as the fine American Airline employees depicted here). His family heads to Florida, and Kevin goes to New York, and guess what?! You're never going to believe this but, yes, the Wet Bandits Harry and Marv are ALSO in New York (now known as the Sticky Bandits), and, look, this is going to blow your mind... they have multiple run-ins with Kevin! What?! How?! What a small world! If you were a kid when the original "Home Alone" came out, chances are you also loved this sequel. Because it's the SAME MOVIE! Now with more murderous booby traps. Home Alone 2 Lost in New York Podcast In this episode of Old Millennials Remember Movies, Tyler and Angela (okay, mostly Tyler) marvel at all the hoops "Lost in New York" must jump through just to rehash the first movie. How can John Heard and Catherine O'Hara screw up as parents again!? Don't worry, they never lose their luggage. Did you love Joe Pesci in "The Irishman?" Great, because he's also in "Home Alone 2." Couldn't get enough Daniel Stern in "Bushwacked?" He's back too! In the Lost in New York podcast, we discuss how the real Plaza Hotel probably shouldn't have allowed their staff to look so idiotic and creepy in a big Hollywood blockbuster. We also dig deep into Pigeon Lady (homeless or not?), as well as Kevin's not-insulting-at-all advice that equates complicated human relationships with GD roller blades. Also, we can't ignore the presidential cameo. Sorry in advance. How many bricks to the head can a man truly endure before experiencing severe brain damage (it's more than three, apparently)? How often do electrocutions turn people (briefly) into skeletons? How are these robbers not DEAD?! Most importantly, the Old Millennials are here to remind all the kids out there how Kevin's genius little schemes are actually almost always complete failures. Just call the cops, kids. Right away.

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York – Ep 63 – 1992

Reindeer Games – ep 62 – 2000

ESad Affleck. Mad Affleck. Ice cold, chilly Affleck. Affleck in a cowboy hat (again). Affleck Butt. Santa Affleck. In "Reindeer Games," Ben Affleck is many things, and it's all totally baffling. You'd be forgiven for forgetting all about "Reindeer Games," the Christmas-set thriller that released in theaters in February (!) 2000. It's directed by a legendary filmmaker, John Frankenheimer, at the tail-end of his life, written by a guy who would go on to write several "Transformers" movies, and co-starring a guy who replaced Vin Diesel early in the production so Diesel could go make the first "Fast and the Furious." So, you know, "Reindeer Games," didn't exactly work out. But... BUT! "Reindeer Games" is also one of the twistiest and most ridiculous movies of its generation, featuring Gary Sinise as a sleazy, greasy-haired gun runner who refers to Affleck's character solely as "convict." Charlize Theron plays an OG Catfish (sorta) who falls in love with Affleck's prison cell mate. That guy gets shivved, so Affleck takes over his identity because... well, it's Charlize f'in Theron. Yes, Affleck, playing a guy named Rudy impersonating a guy named Nick (get it? GET IT?) is a pretty big sleazeball, but don't worry. Everybody in this movie are bigger sleazeballs, making "Reindeer Games" the feel-good Christmas movie of 2000! Reindeer Games podcast In this Old Millennials Remember (Christmas) Movies podcast episode, Tyler and Angela discuss the baffling title ("Don't play no reindeer games with me, convict!"), try to explain all the ridiculous hoops the bad guys must go through just to execute a poorly-planned casino heist and talk about the emotional resonance of a single Affleck tear rolling down Affleck cheek. Also, Angela defines a "director's cut" in her own words on an impromptu game of America's fastest growing podcast segment, "Angela Explains It All."

The Santa Clause – ep 61 – 1994

EIt's Christmas Time with MORE POWER! Grunt, grunt, grunt! Back in 1994, before he became the voice of Buzz Lightyear, Tim Allen was a comedian and star of one of the most popular sitcoms of all time, "Last Man Stand..." err "Home Improvement." "The Santa Clause" propelled Allen into an even bigger spotlight, becoming one of Disney's go-to personalities. Movies like "Jungle 2 Jungle" and "The Shaggy Dog" remake exist because Tim Allen was just so bankable. At least he capped the decade by starring in a genuine classic, 1999's "Galaxy Quest." "The Santa Clause" was a cultural phenomenon, causing a whole lot of people to constantly misspell both this movie's title and the Big Man himself. It also gifted the world a fashion icon - Judge Reinhold in his festive sweaters. As far as we're concerned, there will be no Mock Trial with J. Reinhold when it comes to deciding the MVP of this movie. Tyler and Angela discuss "The Santa Clause" at length. Well, mostly, Tyler just gushes over his childhood love of the flick. The first 30 minutes play out like the most spectacular episode of "Home Improvement" of all time, with Allen's Scott Calvin forced to deliver presents after he essentially startles the real Santa to death. "My name is Judge." We talk about the curious spotlight of a mediocre Denny's restaurant (which is probably not doing the Denny's brand any favors), the existence of sentient pervert puppets, the terrifying elf infestation that's happening all over Scott Calvin's hometown, and the darker aspects of the Santa contract featured in the movie. Why aren't the elves at the North Pole so indifferent about the death of the previous Santa? Was he a slave driver or something? So listen to this "Santa Clause" podcast and return to the magical Disney world of parent custody battles, minor kidnapping and the dangers of being a firefighter. An actual line in this movie: "Remember kids, there's nothing more painful than third degree burns." Indeed.

Willow – ep 60 – 1988

E"Willow" definitely contributed to Angela's love of magic and the supernatural. She remembers many, many great moments from watching "Willow" as a kid. Meanwhile, Tyler kinda remembers a sledding scene. Maybe? This Willow podcast touches on ALL the memorable things from the somewhat-underappreciated Ron Howard fantasy adventure, including baby vomit, Brownies (not the delicious kind) and dirty Val Kilmer teeth! George Lucas concocted the story of "Willow," and he surely hoped the movie would explode in popularity like his "Star Wars" trilogy. That didn't exactly happen, which isn't really the movie's fault, or even George's fault. Well, except that he included those Jar Jar-esque Brownies. The Willow podcast includes Tyler and Angela discussing the incomparable charisma of Val Kilmer (playing a guy named Madmartigan - awesome name), the steady presence of Warwick Davis, pig transformations, syrup wigs, the possible origins of the xenomorph, and much more. Also, is the baby in "Willo...

Blank Check – ep 59 – 1994

EOld Millennials Remember Movies celebrates the debut of Disney+ by watching the most popular and talked about movie on the entire platform: 1994's "Blank Check." Fun fact: This Blank Check podcast was always intended to be one of our first shows. It's a movie fondly remembered from both Tyler and Angela's childhood, and it's totally insane to watch as an adult. Why did we wait until episode 59? Because the DVD was always too expensive. "Blank Check" is the quintessential $5 Wal-mart bin movie. Never pay a penny more! Blank Check podcast Blank Check follows Preston Waters, a money-obsessed 11-year-old with a cheap jerk for a dad ($7 for an entire day at an amusement park? OK, boomer), and a sweet Macintosh Performa 600 computer. A bad guy (Miguel Ferrer) trusts the absolute worst banker in the world to run a convoluted money laundering scheme, and, long story short, the banker confuses Preston with a criminal named JUICE and the kid ends up with a million dollars in cash money.

EIn thisDark Crystal Podcast, Old Millennials Remember Movies travels to the magical world of Gobblyglee... or Blabbitybloo to watch a story of an elf guy going on an epic adventure to fix a big purple crystal and stop some creepy, reptile ostrich doodads. Okay, so that's not exactly it, but if you didn't watch this movie as a kid, then it all could be a little overwhelming. Regardless, "The Dark Crystal" from 1982 is an incredibly imaginative production from puppeteer/genius Jim Henson. The movie contains ZERO human characters and about a million puppets. It's set on the planet Thra, where those ostrich guys, Skeksis, have sucked the life force of the Dark Crystal and basically ruined the world. It's up to a couple gelfins, Jen and Kira, as well as a Furby/Tribble-looking dog named Fizzgig to save the planet! Or whatever!

The Santa Clause – ep 61 – 1994

EIt's Christmas Time with MORE POWER! Grunt, grunt, grunt! Back in 1994, before he became the voice of Buzz Lightyear, Tim Allen was a comedian and star of one of the most popular sitcoms of all time, "Last Man Stand..." err "Home Improvement." "The Santa Clause" propelled Allen into an even bigger spotlight, becoming one of Disney's go-to personalities. Movies like "Jungle 2 Jungle" and "The Shaggy Dog" remake exist because Tim Allen was just so bankable. At least he capped the decade by starring in a genuine classic, 1999's "Galaxy Quest." "The Santa Clause" was a cultural phenomenon, causing a whole lot of people to constantly misspell both this movie's title and the Big Man himself. It also gifted the world a fashion icon - Judge Reinhold in his festive sweaters. As far as we're concerned, there will be no Mock Trial with J. Reinhold when it comes to deciding the MVP of this movie. Tyler and Angela discuss "The Santa Clause" at length. Well, mostly, Tyler just gushes over his childhood love of the flick. The first 30 minutes play out like the most spectacular episode of "Home Improvement" of all time, with Allen's Scott Calvin forced to deliver presents after he essentially startles the real Santa to death. "My name is Judge." We talk about the curious spotlight of a mediocre Denny's restaurant (which is probably not doing the Denny's brand any favors), the existence of sentient pervert puppets, the terrifying elf infestation that's happening all over Scott Calvin's hometown, and the darker aspects of the Santa contract featured in the movie. Why aren't the elves at the North Pole so indifferent about the death of the previous Santa? Was he a slave driver or something? So listen to this "Santa Clause" podcast and return to the magical Disney world of parent custody battles, minor kidnapping and the dangers of being a firefighter. An actual line in this movie: "Remember kids, there's nothing more painful than third degree burns." Indeed.

Willow – ep 60 – 1988

E"Willow" definitely contributed to Angela's love of magic and the supernatural. She remembers many, many great moments from watching "Willow" as a kid. Meanwhile, Tyler kinda remembers a sledding scene. Maybe? This Willow podcast touches on ALL the memorable things from the somewhat-underappreciated Ron Howard fantasy adventure, including baby vomit, Brownies (not the delicious kind) and dirty Val Kilmer teeth! George Lucas concocted the story of "Willow," and he surely hoped the movie would explode in popularity like his "Star Wars" trilogy. That didn't exactly happen, which isn't really the movie's fault, or even George's fault. Well, except that he included those Jar Jar-esque Brownies. The Willow podcast includes Tyler and Angela discussing the incomparable charisma of Val Kilmer (playing a guy named Madmartigan - awesome name), the steady presence of Warwick Davis, pig transformations, syrup wigs, the possible origins of the xenomorph, and much more. Also, is the baby in "Willo...

Blank Check – ep 59 – 1994

EOld Millennials Remember Movies celebrates the debut of Disney+ by watching the most popular and talked about movie on the entire platform: 1994's "Blank Check." Fun fact: This Blank Check podcast was always intended to be one of our first shows. It's a movie fondly remembered from both Tyler and Angela's childhood, and it's totally insane to watch as an adult. Why did we wait until episode 59? Because the DVD was always too expensive. "Blank Check" is the quintessential $5 Wal-mart bin movie. Never pay a penny more! Blank Check podcast Blank Check follows Preston Waters, a money-obsessed 11-year-old with a cheap jerk for a dad ($7 for an entire day at an amusement park? OK, boomer), and a sweet Macintosh Performa 600 computer. A bad guy (Miguel Ferrer) trusts the absolute worst banker in the world to run a convoluted money laundering scheme, and, long story short, the banker confuses Preston with a criminal named JUICE and the kid ends up with a million dollars in cash money. The r...

The Dark Crystal – ep 58 – 1982

EIn thisDark Crystal Podcast, Old Millennials Remember Movies travels to the magical world of Gobblyglee... or Blabbitybloo to watch a story of an elf guy going on an epic adventure to fix a big purple crystal and stop some creepy, reptile ostrich doodads. Okay, so that's not exactly it, but if you didn't watch this movie as a kid, then it all could be a little overwhelming. Regardless, "The Dark Crystal" from 1982 is an incredibly imaginative production from puppeteer/genius Jim Henson. The movie contains ZERO human characters and about a million puppets. It's set on the planet Thra, where those ostrich guys, Skeksis, have sucked the life force of the Dark Crystal and basically ruined the world. It's up to a couple gelfins, Jen and Kira, as well as a Furby/Tribble-looking dog named Fizzgig to save the planet! Or whatever! The Dark Crystal Podcast In this episode, Angela endures a game of "Angela Explains It All" just so Tyler can keep all the monster names straight. Listen, he prefe...
