Shat the Movies ask, what are the best 80s & 90s movies? Do you find yourself asking if the movies we loved while growing up were really that good? Have you caught yourself thinking, “why don’t make movies like they use to?” Can you still remember spending your Friday Nights searching for the perfect movie rental at Blockbuster Video? Do you know what Blockbuster Video is? If you answered yes, then this is the podcast for you!
Your hosts, Roger Roeper, Dick Ebert & Gene Lyons will take a look back in time & decide if our favorite films still hold up. Each week, the audience selects from four (4) movie choices that “The Rog” Gene & “Big D” will break out their race-car VHS tape re-winder and watch the movie that tallied the highest number of votes. Occasionally, a special guest will join to help break down the craziness that was film-making in the 80’s & 90’s.
At the end of each podcast, The Rog & Big D provide the audience with the number of wipes each movie would take to get off your respective bums. Find a comfortable spot on the sofa, and accompany us for a journey through our vast VHS movie collections.
Shat the Movies Hosts
The Rog / @Twitter – The details of his life are quite inconsequential… very well, where do I begin? His father was a notorious lot-lizard hunter from Weston with a mild case of halitosis and a fondness for speaking out of turn. As a boy, Roger would make outrageous claims that he invented Pop Rocks, or that he possessed the ability to read lips. Often Roger would accuse his sneakers of being lazy, and steal sips from his father’s bottle of Miller High Life. Otherwise his childhood was typical, summers in O-Town, luge lessons, and time sketching penises into his Mad Magazines. In the spring he would make meat helmets and worship his false gods.
Big “D” / @Twitter – Dick Ebert is a second-rate American film critic born in the early 1970’s, on the outskirts of New York City. His career began in 1989, as a Customer Service Representative for prestigious Blockbuster Video LLC. In 2004, he became one of the early trailblazers of ripping and copying DVDs. That same year Ebert met a promising young Planet Hollywood Bartender/DJ and fellow movie critic Roger Roeper. After years apart the two critics reunited to found “Shat the Movies”, an internet podcast where they debated the quality of the 1980’s & 1990’s most revered films. The podcast proved a surprising hit, yet Roeper and Ebert still failed to became household names.
Gene Lyons / @Twitter– Gene is a regionally know podcast host and television critic from parts unknown, who covers pop culture and craft beers like nobody else. Based in Phoenix Arizona, Gene is also a special correspondent for Moped & Scooter Weekly Magazine!
