Latest Episodes

College Angst (BREAKING AWAY & FANDANGO)

Join us as we talk about that difficult transition from youth to adulthood… How are we broaching this sensitive topic? Through the prism of movies, of course! This is a movie podcast, after all. We are actually talking about two comedies that are all about transitioning from one stage of life to another. They are 1979’s BREAKING AWAY and 1985’s FANDANGO! So hop on your bike, grab a cold beer, and let’s avoid responsibility for just one more day!

College Angst (BREAKING AWAY & FANDANGO)

Ben Stiller vs Everyone (HEAVYWEIGHTS & DODGE BALL: A TRUE UNDERDOG STORY)

We love Ben Stiller here at the show and we think nobody plays a pompous jerk quite like he does. So, in this episode, we are talking all about Stiller as the bad guy squaring off against scrappy underdogs. We are doing a double feature of HEAVYWEIGHTS & DODGE BALL. If you can dodge a ball then you can listen to our podcast. That’s how that line goes, right?

Blood & Greed in the 1980s (WALL STREET & AMERICAN PSYCHO)

We are heading back to the 80s in this episode as we talk about two scathing takes on the superficial greed culture of that time period with Oliver Stone’s classic WALL STREET and the grimly funny AMERICAN PSYCHO. So, put on your best suit, slick back your hair, and uhh… wait for us because we’ve got to return some videotapes.

Fake Heroes, Real Danger (THREE AMIGOS & GALAXY QUEST)

We are in over our heads on this episode of Video CULTure as we talk about two movies with the very similar concept of “What happens when an actor is forced to be the hero for real?”. Yep, we are talking about THREE AMIGOS and GALAXY QUEST! Both these films are comedy classics that tell very similar stories in very different settings. Listen in as Ryan and Matt break it all down.

Films Based On Novels About Gangs (THE OUTSIDERS & THE WARRIORS)

Video CULTure podcast, come out to plaAAAaay! That’s right. In this episode, we are talking about the 1979 cult classic THE WARRIORS! Since that one is an adaptation of a novel about street gangs, we thought we’d pair it with another one: 1983’s THE OUTSIDERS. So listen in as we discuss these two beloved, strangely similar, movies… and stay gold with us!

WTF 1980s Adventure Films (THE GOLDEN CHILD & THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE 8th DIMENSION)

Both these films have big cult followings and share some surprising connections. Listen in as Ryan and Matt discuss it all! Why should you listen in, you ask? Because you’re perfect that’s why.

Our first-ever ‘Watch Along’! (featuring HIGHLANDER)

In this episode, Ryan and Matt… for the first time ever actually watch a film together! They chose the 1986 fantasy film HIGHLANDER for this momentous occasion. Ryan has never seen it and it’s one of Matt’s childhood favorites. What will Ryan think of this weird genre mashup? Will Matt start rambling about how under-appreciated Christopher Lambert is? Will they both end up just talking about how great the soundtrack from Queen is? Grab your sword, listen in, and find out!
