The Best 80s & 90s Movies

What are the 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 the duo 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.

  2. Near Dark, License To Drive, Young Guns, St Elmo’s Fire, The Outsiders, Heathers, The Wraith, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Point Break and Can’t Buy Me Love!!

  3. Would love to see Top Gun, Ferris Bueller, Breakfast Club, Valley Girl, Can’t Buy Me Love, Just One of the Guys, License to Drive, Private School, River’s Edge. Some of them are probably on your list already….

  4. Being a slightly older vintage than you fine gentlemen, I would love to hear your take on a comedy classic from my uni days – ‘Airplane’ (1980) – or as we knew it here in Oz, ‘Flying High’.

    “Best comedy of 1980?” – ‘Shirley you can’t be serious!”

    ps – After enjoying you’re epic WestWorld casting, I’m loving reliving my youth by listening to your retakes of 1980 film classics – great work

  5. Freaking loved Less Than Zero… can’t wait to hear your take on it. Please add Doc Hollywood and The Hard Way to the list of future movies to review as well. As a Blockbuster veteran (12 years, MOD) I will say you guys do a great job…. keep up the good work!!!

    1. Thanks so much, Tom. I’m sure Dick will be glad to hear he’s not alone among the ranks of ex-Blockbuster men. “Less Than Zero” is right up my alley. Love the recommendation.

  6. I’m watching Lethal Weapon right now, I feel your list is incomplete without it! I mean, what does Murtaugh think the kill radius of a pineapple grenade is? Also, Riggs’ with the ‘sniper’ rifle? He hits each one center mass with the shortest barrelled rifle I’ve ever seen at a range of, what, a half mile? Ugh! Ridiculous. I can’t even begin with Gary fucking Busey.

  7. Please add “My Cousin Vinny.” I am a current law student and I watch this movie to get ready for Mock Trial. This movie is the reason I am in law school now.

    1. Tiffany, We have gladly added My Cousin Vinny to this weeks listener poll. Make sure to have your friends vote and keep listening.
