The new TMNT: Mutant Mayhem film just hit streaming so we decided to honor that by going back to the OG film.

It's crazy that this film has 18% on RT. Like seriously? This movie is not only funny, it's heartbreaking, sad, whimsical, well acted. Especially by Curly Sue herself portrayed by Alisan Porter.

Scarface is fuckin S-tier shit main. What can be said about this true masterpiece of cinema that hasn't already been said. Al Pacino's performance as Scarface is the kinda shit you study in school.

It's the early 90's and the success of Tim Burton's Batman begun a spree of comic book films. Film studio's were getting their mitts on any and all comic book IP rights to adapt to the big screen.

We love Kevin Smith films. We already did Clerks, which is arguably Kevin's Smith's best film but we have such a soft spot for Mallrats. We watched this movie together for the first time huddled around my 15in monitor in high school in 2001. This movie really gave breaks to some big time names. Ben Affleck was a relative unknown. Jason Lee was doin…

This is movie is stupid underrated. Johnny Depp plays Cry-Baby, a teen heartthrob on the wrong side of the tracks who falls for a Square named Allison.

We are on Episode 69 and if you've listened to the show before, you know where our minds go.

Listen to us as we vibe with some of her hits as we give our…

Talk about an all time classic. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John (RIP) really steal the show in this film adaptation of the popular musical. We love musicals, and this one ranks high on our all time list. The music with the story really set the tone (heh). Most musicals suffer from using the songs as a crutch for poor writing. Grease does not s…
