GTGM Episode 106: Link (1986)

In the latest episode, Doug reveals that while he still doesn’t enjoy apes in film, he feels much more comfortable when they’re wearing clothes, and Jamie becomes frustrated (as all should) with Link’s refusal to respect personal space boundaries. A movie with many questions, relatively no answers and a baffling score. Let’s discuss Link!

GTGM Episode 104: Blue Velvet (1986)

Jamie and Doug dig deep on the latest episode as they try and figure out what exactly is going on in Lumberton, what Frank Booth is sucking down in that gas tank, when this movie takes place, why Laura Dern looks the way she does when she cries, how many mechanical birds actually populate this town, why half the dialogue is beer-centric, and why Frank thinks that disguise would fool anyone. It’s our first David Lynch film folks so strap in for this wild ride that is Blue Velvet!

GTGM Episode 103: Code of Silence (1985)

On this action-packed episode, Jamie’s in a different timezone and comes off as sleepy and Doug is forced to watch a Chuck Norris movie and comes off as aggravated. The two try and get to the bottom of Chuck’s appeal and wade through lazy action sequences and uninspired dialogue to get there. But don’t worry, Dennis Farina shows up occasionally to inject a bit of life into this film and our hosts do enough bad Chicago accents and Mark Ruffalo impressions to get you through this one!

GTGM Episode 102: The Incredible Shrinking Woman (1981)

On this listener recommended episode, Jamie and Doug try and figure out why Lilly Tomlin plays roughly 45 roles in this film, who thought it would be a good idea to include a man in a gorilla suit, and why the movie refuses to send any sort of message. Seriously, give us anything!

GTGM Episode 101: Cat People (1982)

Doug and Jamie work their way through Paul Schrader’s baffling remake of Jacques Tourneur‘s 1942 classic, replacing all of the tension and mystery with T&A! Was it surprisingly great or is it little more than the clumps of cat litter at the bottom of the garbage bag that is bad 80s remakes? Watch the film, take a listen, and then decide for yourself.
