Predator 2 (1990) – Best Movies of the '80s & '90s Review



Predator 2 Quote: “You can’t see the eyes of the demon, until him come callin” – King Willie

Predator rocked the barrier between action and sci-fi when Arnold Schwarzenegger battled a new kind of enemy in 1987. This isn’t that movie. On its face, taking the thrilling Predator formula and applying it to an urban setting makes for a good movie. Throw in big names like Danny Glover, Bill Paxton, and Gary Busey, and you should have a blockbuster. So how did 1990’s Predator 2 fail? We’ll tell you how!

“Predator 2” Los Angeles is enduring a heat wave and a crime wave, so the pressure on police officer Michael Harrigan (Danny Glover) to solve a strange string of murders is mounting. Harrigan thinks the culprit can be found among the warring gangs and drug cartels, but FBI Special Agent Peter Keyes (Gary Busey) knows the horrible truth: Their killer is a fearsome extraterrestrial (Kevin Peter Hall) with keen hunting abilities that include superior night vision and the power to make itself invisible.

Grease 2 (1982) – Best Movies of the '80s & '90s Review



“Grease 2” Stephanie Zinone (Michelle Pfeiffer) is the leader of Rydell High School’s Pink Ladies, a gang of girls who are counterparts of the school’s group of greasers called the T-Birds. Stephanie is tired of her relationship with top T-Bird Johnny Nogerelli (Adrian Zmed), so she breaks up with him and quickly catches the eye of English exchange student Michael Carrington (Maxwell Caulfield). Hoping to win her over, Michael tries to overcome his nerdy ways while holding off the jealous Johnny.

When it comes to cult musicals, we typically think of Rocky Horror Picture Show, Little Shop of Horrors, & This Is Spinal Tap. However, a little film about the T-Birds, Pink Ladies, and overt references to sexual intercourse has quietly become a new generational cult movie. No…not that Grease, we’re talking about Grease 2!

Listener Mike from Norfolk is part of that new Rydell High School crew that stopped hand-jiving and started bowling. He even went so far as to build a replica of the “”Cool Rider’s”” Honda Scrambler. It was fate that he commission Shat The Movies to review his favorite obsession.

Fellow Grease 2 enthusiast, Ashley Schlafly joins Roger & Big D to debate whether the sequel is better than the original. Ash swoons over the empowering female character of Stephanie, while Big D explains the rules of being a Pink Lady. Rog discounts Ash’s favorite song as nothing more than a B-Side recording from Meatloaf. All three hosts cringe during the “”Let’s Do It For Our Country”” performance.

So, put on a leather jacket without a shirt underneath and get ready to jump the luau pool. It’s the latest episode of STM.

Grease 2 Quote: “You know all this deep junk and everything. You must think I am some kinda dummy, right?” – Stephanie Zinone

GoldenEye (1995) – Best Movies of the '80s & '90s Review



Goldeneye Quote: “You know, this sort of behavior could qualify as sexual harassment.” – Miss Moneypenny

“Goldeneye” gave us a new James Bond in Pierce Brosnan and a type of villain with Alan Cumming’s Boris The Hacker. But the 1995 blockbuster missed a Golden opportunity to reinvent a franchise that was long overdue for some growing up.

Sure, there were highlights: a sadistically sexy Famke Janssen as Xenia Onatopp, another Sean Bean death and a cameo by Minnie Driver. However, the improbable stunts, goofy gadgets, sexism, misogyny were too much for this movie to overcome.

At least there was the video game. Man, that was a fun game.

“Goldeneye” When a powerful satellite system falls into the hands of Alec Trevelyan, AKA Agent 006 (Sean Bean), a former ally-turned-enemy, only James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) can save the world from an awesome space weapon that — in one short pulse — could destroy the earth! As Bond squares off against his former compatriot, he also battles Trevelyan’s stunning ally, Xenia Onatopp (Famke Janssen), an assassin who uses pleasure as her ultimate weapon.

Kids (1995) – Best Movies of the '80s & '90s Review



“Kids” Amoral teen Telly (Leo Fitzpatrick) has made it his goal to sleep with as many virgin girls as possible — but he doesn’t tell them that he’s HIV positive. While on the hunt for his latest conquest, Telly and his best friend, Casper (Justin Pierce), smoke pot and steal from shops around New York. Meanwhile, Jenny (Chloë Sevigny), one of Telly’s early victims, makes it her mission to save other girls from him. But before she has a chance to confront him at a party, everything goes horribly wrong.

With her third “Shat The Movies” commission, listener Lisa triggered some really dark memories and icky feelings from Ash, Big D, and Gene. To say reviewing Larry Clark’s “Kids” was difficult would be an understatement. 

But we’re glad we did because watching this landmark independent film reminded us it’s just as disturbing now as it was in 1995.

Chloe Sevigny, Rosario Dawson, and Leo Fitzpatrick turned our guts inside-out in their film debuts. But did Harmony Korine write the story he’d been waiting to tell all his life, or is this just a movie meant to scare suburban moms?

In this episode, we discuss rolling blunts, which drugs can actually ruin your life, the ’90s HIV scare, how kids actually talk, why we were pulling for Casper, and whether teen girls are victims or young adults exercising their agency.

Kids Quote: “Mmmmm. Butterscotch, yo. That’s the best.” – Casper

Three Amigos (1986) – Best Movies of the '80s & '90s Review



“Three Amigos” Three cowboy movie stars from the silent era — Dusty Bottoms (Chevy Chase), Lucky Day (Steve Martin) and Ned Nederlander (Martin Short) — are fired when one of their movies bombs. In what seems to be a career-saving offer, young Mexican woman Carmen (Patrice Martinez) offers them a high-paying gig in her village. The three jump at the opportunity, expecting to do their typical act, but Carmen believes they are really heroes and asks them to rid her village of bad guy El Guapo (Alfonso Arau).

Here at Shat The Movies, we pride ourselves on seeing beyond nostalgia, beyond our personal memories, and really asking ourselves, “Does this ’80s movie actually hold up?”

That solemn task has never been harder than when Big D and Gene were forced to stare their own childhoods in the eye, tip their sombreros, and honestly dig into “Three Amigos.”

With Ash asking, “What is this movie?” and Randy Newman in the writing credits, there were moments Dick and Gene had their doubts: Is Chevy Chase capable of being funny? Was Martin Short the right choice for Ned Nederlander? Is this comedy good or just memorable?

“”No!”” Big D bravely shouted. “This is a classic movie of sight gags, of talented actors, and … rich backstories?”

Listen as the Shat Crew wonders who B.J. Novak is, ponders whether Galaxy Quest was funnier, guesses how Billy The Kid would fare in Santo Poco, and spills a little tea in the mix.”

Three Amigos Quote: “Jefe, would you say I have a plethora of piñatas?” – El Guapo

Halloween 4 (1988) – Best Movies of the '80s & '90s Review



“Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers” The apparently comatose Michael Myers (George P. Wilbur) is being transferred from one hospital to another, but he wakes up when the ambulance crew talk about his surviving niece, Jamie (Danielle Harris). After slaughtering his attendants, Myers sets out to find his one living relative who is, fortunately, being cared for by a kind and resourceful foster sister named Rachel (Ellie Cornell). Meanwhile, the ever-cautious Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) remains on the killer’s path.

The 1978 “Halloween” was a hit with the Shat The Movies crew, so we were overjoyed when loyal listener Tom C. in Texas chose its sequel “”Halloween 4″” as this year’s Spooktacular special.

“The Return of Michael Myers” has everything we loved about the original, minus the spectacular boobs, plus some great ’80s special effects. Michael is deadlier. The town is more violent, and Dr. Loomis is a lot more Dr. Loomisy.

Perhaps the scariest part is a look back at parenting in the ’80s. Why did our parents let us eat what we ate? Why did they leave us alone when we needed them most? Why did they let us wander around town in the dark on Halloween night, visiting strangers’ homes and mingling with adults wearing disguises? Why didn’t they make us wear pants?

Really, it’s a miracle any of us lived to see 2020. So let’s celebrate life by cheering for deaths. That’s the true spirit of the season. ”

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers Quote: “You’re talking about him as if he were a human being. That part of him died years ago.” – Dr. Loomis

The Fugitive (1993) – Best Movies of the '80s & '90s Review



“The Fugitive” Wrongfully accused of murdering his wife, Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford) escapes from the law in an attempt to find her killer and clear his name. Pursuing him is a team of U.S. marshals led by Deputy Samuel Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones), a determined detective who will not rest until Richard is captured. As Richard leads the team through a series of intricate chases, he discovers the secrets behind his wife’s death and struggles to expose the killer before it is too late.

Most Shat The Movies features can be summed up as “great ideas gone wrong,” but what about a terrible idea gone right? On paper, 1993’s “The Fugitive” sounds ridiculous: A vascular surgeon is sentenced to death but escapes to find his wife’s one-armed killer while diving, punching, and spying his way to freedom.

But sometimes charm, practical effects, a clever script, and non-stop thrills come together to make movie magic. This episode, the Shat Crew had to ask itself, “Were Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones really that good? Was the dam scene that exciting? Was Julianne Moore really in this movie?” Or were we all fooled by childhood excitement and nostalgia

Big D explores justice versus vengeance. Ash recalls the psychological scars left by the opening murder. And Gene once again asks why the movie’s smart guy isn’t smarter.”

The Fugitive Quote: “Listen up, ladies and gentlemen! Our fugitive has been on the run for 90 minutes. Average foot speed over uneven ground, barring injury, is 4 miles an hour which gives us a radius of 6 miles! What I want out of each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up at 15 miles! Our fugitive’s name is Dr. Richard Kimble. Go get him.” – Deputy US Marshal Samuel Gerard

Internal Affairs (1990) – Best Movies of the '80s & '90s Review



“Internal Affairs” In the Los Angeles Police Department, Officer Dennis Peck (Richard Gere) is a divisive figure, loved by those who are loyal to him and looked on with suspicion by others. His disreputable behavior and dubious finances arouse the suspicion of Internal Affairs, and Sgt. Raymond Avila (Andy Garcia) and his partner (Laurie Metcalf) are assigned to investigate. When a series of witnesses are murdered, Avila realizes his life is in danger, along with that of his wife’s (Nancy Travis).

Most ’80s and ’90s cop movies are cheesy, unfunny, offensive, unintelligent, or a combination of the four. But 1990’s “Internal Affairs” joins “L.A. Confidential” as a rare police drama that delivers on quality and thrills.

Sporting the worst haircuts of their careers, Andy Garcia and Richard Gere spent two hours trading lethal glares, filthy innuendo, mind games, and silky fabrics. Of course, “Internal Affairs” had the typical ’90s slow-mo shots and hideous sets, but all that was balanced by a buffet of beautiful butts and some forward-thinking filmmaking. 

Care to guess the wipe score before listening? We think you’ll be surprised.

Rudy (1993) – Best Movies of the '80s & '90s Review



“Rudy” Rudy Ruettiger (Sean Astin) wants to play football at the University of Notre Dame but has neither the money for tuition nor the grades to qualify for a scholarship. Rudy redoubles his efforts to get out of the steel mill where his father works when his best friend (Christopher Reed) dies in an accident there. Overcoming his dyslexia thanks to his friend and tutor, D-Bob (Jon Favreau), Rudy gains admission to Notre Dame and begins to fight his way onto the school’s fabled football team.

When people think of inspirational ’90s football movies, one sticks out like a very short thumb. That’s why inaugural Shat on Fantasy Football League winner Stephen “Happy Harry” Jenkins decided to commission the 1993 Sean Astin hit “Rudy.”

Have the years made us too cynical to appreciate the story of an underdog whose greatest achievement was simply getting on the field, or can the Jerry Goldsmith score and a few outstanding performances still tug at our heartstrings? 

Gene questions the casting of a creepy Jon Favreau and the decision to fast forward through Rudy’s Vietnam years. Ash reveals how to decode the movie using hairstyles, and guest host Kevin Brackett points out the parallels with 1994’s “Forrest Gump.”

The Shat Crew also discusses Astin’s Samwise typecast, explosive foreshadowing, the misery of Notre Dame, and how close this sweet drama is to being a terrifying stalker film.

Beverly Hills Cop (1984) – Best Movies of the '80s & '90s Review



“Beverly Hills Cop“ After his childhood buddy is murdered while visiting Detroit, rebellious cop Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) follows the leads to Beverly Hills, Calif., under the auspices of a vacation. He checks in with old friend Jenny Summers (Lisa Eilbacher) and starts to believe her boss, art dealer Victor Maitland (Steven Berkoff), might somehow be involved in the murder. However, Lt. Bogomil (Ronny Cox) of the Beverly Hills Police Department does not trust Foley, and hinders his search for evidence.

“Beverly Hills Cop” launched Eddie Murphy’s international movie career and was the biggest box office hit of 1984, but is it overrated? No, dummy.

This is the police comedy that brought us the banana in the tailpipe, the synth sounds of “Axel F,” the lovable Judge Reinhold at Det. Rosewood and Bronson Pinchot’s bizarre accent.

Does Eddie Murphy’s laugh get annoying? God yes. Do the action sequences make sense? Hell no. But “Beverly Hills Cop” gets our Shat Stamp of Approval. Find out why, and let us know what you think!

Beverly Hills Cop Quote: “I don’t know what you teach these fellows but they’re not just regular cops. They’re super cops. And the only thing missing on these guys are capes.” – Axel Foley

Backdraft (1991) – Best Movies of the '80s & '90s Review



Backdraft taught us to yell at fires, run into burning buildings, cool off our hot bods by firehose, and never, ever let our estranged sons help us make breakfast. And who knew you could make millions converting firehouses into community centers? There’s a lot of wisdom in this 1991 Ron Howard cheesefest, but very little of it has to do with fire.

Big D examines when it’s OK to knock boots with your ex-wife. Gene cautions against lit cigarettes at arson investigations, and Roger gives a lesson on commercial real estate economics. Plus we hear from the surprising number of brave Shat The Movies listeners who fight fires for a living.

“Backdraft” Chicago firefighting brothers Stephen (Kurt Russell) and Brian (William Baldwin) have been rivals since childhood. Brian, struggling to prove himself, transfers to the arson unit. There he aids Don (Robert De Niro) in his investigation into a spate of fires involving oxygen-induced infernos called backdrafts. But when a conspiracy implicating a crooked politician and an arsonist leads Brian back to Stephen, he is forced to overcome his brotherly competitiveness in order to crack the case.
