Episode 101: Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

Introduced by Matt Discounting Piranha II: The Spawning—from which James Cameron claims to have been sacked, in a shrewd attempt to distance himself from, and disown it—and his underwater documentary work, he's only actually directed eight films, and for me, only three are worth your precious time: The Terminator, Aliens, and Terminator 2: Judgment Day....

Episode 100: Home Alone (1990)

Introduced by Matt Home Alone is not for everyone. As much as my dad laughs at Gerald G. Bamman's indelible portrayal of the miserly Uncle Frank, I’m certain it's not entirely his cup of tea—though I do cherish the memory of him taking me to see Home Alone 2: Lost in New York at the old...

Episode 92: The Bodyguard (1992)

Film chosen and introduced by Matt I’ve watched The Bodyguard perhaps as many times as Frank Farmer’s watched Yojimbo. Alright, maybe not that much. But I've seen it a lot... I've seen it a lot. Due to that, this was an effortless first encounter to trace, as I have pristine memories of the summer surrounding... Continue Reading →
