Beverly Hills Cop (1984)

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

“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. Continue reading Beverly Hills Cop (1984)

Breakfast Club (1985)

Breakfast Club Quote: “Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place.” – Bender

High School was a very different place for teenagers back in 1985. There were no cell phones, lockers were still in use, and there was this strange building on campus called the “Library” that housed books and delinquents on Saturdays.

In this week’s review, Rog, Big D, & Gene explore the hit film “The Breakfast Club”. We explore whether or not the themes of teenage angst, High School stereotypes, and John Hughes-style diversity still hold up over 30 years later. Continue reading Breakfast Club (1985)

Commando (1985)

Commando Quote: “Let off some steam, Bennett” – Col. John Matrix


Give “Commando” some respect! Seriously! This Arnold Schwarzenegger action extravaganza paved the way for watch-based action shows like “24,” spawned Arnold comedies like “Kindergarten Cop” and proved you can, in fact, have too much calypso music in a movie.

This episode has something for everyone: Big D wows by using his military experience to backseat drive the world’s worst Special Forces operatives. Roger busts out his world-famous Austrian

accent, and Gene tells the tragic tale of Val Verde, a nation forgotten because it never existed.

Relive Schwarzenegger’s tactical mistakes, marvel at Dan Hedaya’s awkward Spanish accent, swoon over the implied homosexuality, and cringe at the veiled pedophilia.

It’s all here on Shat The Movies. Sit back, press play, and LET OFF SOME STEAM. Continue reading Commando (1985)

Tombstone (1993)

Tombstone Quote: “”You skin that smoke wagon and we’ll see what happens! (…) I’m gettin’ tired of all your gas, now jerk that pistol and go to work! (…) I said throw down, boy!”” – Wyatt Earp


“Tombstone” packed in the stars: Kurt Russel, Val Kilmer, Sam Elliot, Bill Paxton, Dana Delaney, Powers Boothe, Charlton Heston, Jason Priestley, Steven Lang, Billy Bob Thornton and more. And it packed in the action with a relentless shoot-em-up pace. But did it pack as big a punch as we remember?
From historical accuracy to production quality, let’s cock the hammer on this 90’s western and explore some hot topics, including: how many shells and double-barreled shotgun holds, when it’s permissible to seek a new wife, how long after an assassination attempt you must wait to play billiards, and the difference between Doc Holliday and Doc Hollywood.
