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 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…

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 105: The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years (1988)

Grab a giant can of Aqua Net, slather some cheap eyeliner on your face, squeeze into your assless chaps and join Doug and Jamie as they venture deep into the Southern California hair metal scene of the late 1980s. It’s the first documentary covered on the show and a fitting way to close out the fourth year! Thanks to all the listeners through the first four years of the show and here’s to another 4+!!!

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!
