Good Times Great Movies

GTGM Episode 115: Motel Hell (1980) with Stephanie Crawford

There’s only room for one at the Motel Hello, so they flip a coin and Jamie keeps on driving. Thankfully, Doug runs into Stephanie Crawford in the lobby and she manages to keep him from getting buried up to his neck in the ‘Secret Garden’. Chainsaw fights, tubin’, sexual assault, John Ratzenberger…This movie’s got it all!

GTGM Episode 114: Deadly Blessing (1981)

Grave robbing, terrifying Amish…I mean, um, Hittites, spooky spiders, poisonous snakes, a bit of Sleepaway Camp thrown in for good measure, and backgammon! Wow, this was a thrill ride. Or at least the final ten minutes were. We get our Wes Craven on and talk about one of his lesser-known works.

GTGM Episode 113: No Retreat, No Surrender (1986)

While Jamie fully embraces her love of JCVD as well as this genre of film, Doug can’t wrap his mind around the New York mafia’s plan to buy out the most successful dojos on the west coast. Also, this movie’s amazing! Do yourself a favor and watch it before listening to the episode. We wouldn’t want to ruin any of this for you…

GTGM Episode 112: The Running Man (1987)

All Doug wanted was a futuristic game show where people throw ducks at balloons and nothing is as it seems. Instead, we discuss a film with wall-to-wall accents, and a performance by Arnold that makes his work in Commando appear Oscar-worthy. Jamie’s a bit punchy, sleepy and angry…because she had to watch The Running Man.

GTGM Episode 111: Fame (1980)

On this episode, Jamie and Doug can’t get enough Leroy but have no interest in much else going on at this school. Jamie can’t stop thinking about Freddie Prinze Jr. and Doug takes any chance he can get to bring up Can’t Stop the Music. Oh, and the next episode’s a birthday choice so get ready!

GTGM Episode 110: Cherry 2000 (1987) with Stephanie Crawford

On our latest episode, Doug clumsily refuses to introduce the guest, Jamie can’t tell the difference between sunscreen and calamine lotion, and special guest Stephanie Crawford posits that sex robots might weigh upwards of 5,000 lbs. Oh, and they all hate the lead in this movie!

GTGM: Beverly Hills Madam (Patreon bonus clip)

GTGM Episode 109: Explorers (1985)

In this episode, Jamie and Doug are giddy to see a very young River Phoenix act like a middle aged scientist and follow around an adorable baby Ethan Hawke. Sadly, interesting subplots involving Dick Miller and Meshach Taylor go un’explored’ and the movie devolves into nonsense during the last third. Also, Amanda Peterson’s just hanging around with nothing to do. Most of this is a good film…most of it.

GTGM Episode 108: Party Camp (1987)

We’ve tried really hard to avoid discussing movies that would have been relegated to USA Up All Night’s lineup of sleazy trash, but we’re doing a camp movie every summer so it looks like we couldn’t make it past year five! This is incompetently made garbage by a director with a fascinating career. Find the film on YouTube if you dare but better yet, just listen to the discussion.

GTGM Episode 107: Gung Ho (1986)

Sometimes we review movies that feel progressive for the time period and we get lulled into a sense that the 1980s were a time of acceptance and equality. But there are other times that we come across movies that bring the racist reality of the time flooding back. We’ll give you one guess as to what kind of movie this is…
