Episode #27, "The Goonies"

 

Hey you guys! Just in time for the 30th anniversary of The Goonies, writer Drew Pisarra (Sundance TV) is on the podcast to watch this '80s classic for the first time.

What's it like to watch Goonies for the first time as an adult? Does it hold up to 30 years of hype? Drew and I discuss the film's legacy, its many Rube Goldberg-ian traps (and logic problems) and whether or not the famous "This is our time!" speech is responsible for a generation of entitled millennials. 

Be sure to check out Drew's Korean movie blog and follow him on Twitter

Music: "The Goonies R Good Enough," Cyndi Lauper's ode to all things goonie. 

Note: The Korean gangster film that Drew discusses is in fact Rough Cut and not Eye for an Eye.

This week we're ducking Charlie fire with Noah Tarnow of The Big Quiz Thing, who is on the podcast to watch Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam classic Apocalypse Now for the first time.

We explore why Noah has avoided the film over the years and attempt to get to the bottom of why they just don't make war movies like they used to. Plus, Noah has some potentially controversial opinions about The Godfather and I babble a lot about the amazing book Easy Riders, Raging Bulls

Folks in NYC, San Fran, and Boston should check out a live Big Quiz Thing event. Also be sure to follow them on Twitter and hire Noah for all your trivia needs.
