Ghostbusters31/08/2020 Duração: 34min
Just how old is the scary librarian? Which came first, the sticker or the movie? Is it a good idea to a) turn off a nuclear ghost storage unit in downtown New York, or b) cross the beams? And who or what inspired the name of the Sumerian God dressed like Grace Jones/David Bowie? .... All this and more will be revealed in the latest instalment of Children of the 80s..the podcast where we talk about movies, from the 80s.
Teen wolf21/08/2020 Duração: 16min
In this episode, we break down Teen Wolf, the movie so good it went on to inspire a mediocre television series. Spoiler alert: Michael J. Fox is a teenager. Who’s also a wolf. That’s pretty much all you need to know, but there’s kind of a love story, and also an exciting basketball game at the end. Did I mention the wolf already?
Raiders of the Lost Ark19/08/2020 Duração: 26min
Who would win a fight between angels of death and the Nazis (answer: the angels)? How many shots are required to drink a French double-crossing archaeologist under the table? And what does Tom Selleck have to do with this movie?
Karate Kid19/08/2020 Duração: 26min
In this episode, we find out if the original Karate Kid stands up to the test of time. And, oh my gosh, the answer is a resounding YES. Wax on, wax off. Crane kick. Sweep the leg. Strike first, strike hard, no mercy. We could do this all day long. Crane kick again, because that part is awesome.
The Goonies19/08/2020 Duração: 25min
Do you like adventure movies? Do you like big groups of kids who yell a lot? Have you ever wondered if there’s pirate treasure buried in Astoria, Oregon? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then The Goonies might just be the movie for you. Find out more in this exciting episode!
Until the End of the World19/08/2020 Duração: 21min
We spent four years preparing to make our second episode, and it shows! We know literally everything about Until the End of the World, the Wim Wenders classic, except maybe how to pronounce “Wim Wenders.” Also we didn’t realise it actually came out in 1991, which is technically not in the 80s, until after we’d already watched it. But it’s a great movie all the same. Did Wim Wenders predict social media addiction? Sure looks like it...
