The most expensive film of its day, "Total Recall" took Arnold Schwarzenegger's career to new heights by adding star power like Sharon Stone, technological wonders like full body scanners, and philosophical questions about the nature of reality. This 1990 sci-fi rollercoaster didn't sacrifice any of the Schwarzenegger charm. We still get the pu ...…
 
"Toy Story" won the Best of Disney category, and it's easy to see why this Pixar powerhouse spawned an entire franchise. The characters are unforgettable, the attention to detail is unrivaled, and the voice talent is unbeatable. This episode is all about Dick Ebert. One second he's perving out over The Little Mermaid, the next he's impersonatin ...…
 
No ‘80s movie podcast featuring Kerri Gross would be complete without covering David Lynch’s sci-fi epic “Dune.” But after more than 100 episodes, Shat The Movies couldn’t seem to make it happen. In walked listener Greg R. Last year, he wowed us all by commissioning “Rounders” for a Shat review. This time, Greg thought it would be hilarious to ...…
 
When an Army veteran and a nurse who knows nothing about the military review a '90s submarine movie, you know it's going to be crazy. Throw in Roger Roeper's tales of babysitting in an alligator costume, and it's full-on insane. Listener Rod Phillips paid Shat The Movies good money to cover "Crimson Tide" as a birthday gift to himself. And his ...…
 
Most sequels give us more of the same. "Back to The Future Part II" changed the game by giving us a world we'd never seen: hoverboards, Pac-Fax, VistaGlide, and filming two sequels back-to-back with cross-promotion embedded in the movie. But bigger isn't always better. Losing "Back to the Future" stars Crispin Glover and Claudia Wells made some ...…
 
How much Corey is too much Corey? Between Corey Haim's mouth breathing and Corey Feldman's avalanche of bombing jokes, we'd say "License to Drive" answers that question emphatically. The Shat Crew expected corny '80s jokes, cheese car stunts, and loads of questionable fashion. But we had no idea "License to Drive" would lead us to tales of seve ...…
 
When "Shat The Movies" listener Lucas discovered we wouldn't be doing a Best of Jewish Mob Movies category, he took matters into his own hands. Equipped with $300 and a brilliantly composed email, Lucas convinced Big D we needed to cover the 1998 sleeper "Safe Men." We were amazed to discover one of the strangest films we've witnessed. The cast ...…
 
It's our 100th movie review! And we've been saving one very special movie for this massive milestone. Tear off your shirt, flex your freedom, and GET TO THE CHOPPAH! It's "Predator" time. Let's go back to 1987, when Schwarzenegger was Apex Arnold, military tactics meant nothing in movies, on-set cocaine binges were an daily occurrence, and Jess ...…
 
Listener Christian commissioned this '80s classic as a tribute to Shat The Movies host Roger Roeper, and Rog defends it against criticism from Big D and Kerri Gross. Find out what a 2003 Pizza Hut promotion had to do with this 1989 comedy and how much mustaches confuse Kerri. We also cover Big D's Caribbean party life, how hot New York actually ...…
 
Big D thought we should do a Best of Rick Ducommun, and you're probably wondering who that is. You're not alone. Ducommun was in "Spaceballs," "The Last Boy Scout," "Die Hard," "Groundhog Day," and dozens of other '80s and '90s classics. You might say he's Mr. Shat The Movies, and Big D is a big fan. So it's only fitting that Dick Ebert pop his ...…
 
"The Crow" isn't the greatest movie of the '90s. It's not even the best movie of 1994. But for a lot of thirty-somethings, this movie was a huge part of adolescence. But Shat The Movies has passed it over again and again. Well, listener Joshua decided that's some bullshit and decided to FIRE IT UP. Shat The Movies resident goths Gene Lyons and ...…
 
"WarGames" changed the way '80s kids looked at video games, computers, and the threat of nuclear annihilation. But in the age of smartphones and wireless Internet, does this 1983 geek-gasm still hold up? The original Shat The Movies threesome teams up on this episode to discuss Matthew Broderick's charm, a hotter Ally Sheedy, the difference bet ...…
 
"Jingle All The Way" marked the end of two distinct cinematic eras: Arnold Schwarzenegger's string of comedies and Sinbad's film career. But was it really hot garbage, or does this quirky Christmas satire have some lasting laughs to offer? Big D needed two viewings to decide. This movie led to a lot of surprisingly spirited Shat The Movies deba ...…
 
Many people forget "Edward Scissorhands" is a Christmas movie. Well, at least it's a movie with Christmas in it. Or is it simply snow? Actually, it's just shave ice. But whatever, it's Christmastime in Shatland, and we're doing the damn thing. Tim Burton's career has been long and flirted with Christmas several times, but few of his movies came ...…
 
"Good Will Hunting" won the Best of Matt Damon category among Shat The Movies, and we can see why. Damon didn't just star in the movie, he co-wrote it with Ben Affleck when the two were just a couple of fresh-faced actors. This ode to Boston showed us Robin Williams' dramatic side, which we later realized was tragic foreshadowing, and it introd ...…
 
"Groundhog Day" is the rare movie that became more important than the holiday that inspired it. Many believe it's Bill Murray's greatest work, and Shat The Movies listener Greg has watched it again, and again, and again, and again. There's always something new to discover in this '90s classic movie, even if you've seen it hundreds of times -- l ...…
 
"The Last Boy Scout" is a movie by dirt bags for dirt bags. Producer Joel Silver is a dirt bag who cast his girlfriend as a topless chick in "Die Hard" and never gave her film credits. Bruce Willis plays a disgraced Secret Service agent who appear to be a dirt bag private investigator. And Big D is a dirt bag who loves this movie and cheated on ...…
 
Thanksgiving is a holiday like no other: We don't buy presents. We don't wear costumes. We don't party all night. We just bring our family and friends together to share a meal and reflect on our blessings. "Planes Trains & Automobiles" is a rare movie in many ways: It's a comedy that makes you cry. It's a John Hughes movie without teen stars. A ...…
 
Disney's "Tron" digitally dazzled the world as revolutionary work of art: the identity discs, the concept of a computerized world, and visuals that to this day haven't been replicated in their inventiveness and effort. But one thing sets movies apart from other optical art forms: The Story. And when you read Tron's narrative files, some border ...…
 
Everyone has that phase they'd rather not talk about. For some, it's when they wore JNCO jeans. For others, it's when they thought that two-tone ska tattoo was a good idea; or when dating skaters seemed cool. If the 1990s were a woman, Steven Seagal would be the phase she wishes she could forget. But we're braver than that, so we're diving into ...…
 
There isn't a soul in this world or the next who doesn't love "Beetlejuice." It's Michael Keaton at his best. It's Tim Burton at his best. It's Geena Davis at her best. It's Alec Baldwin at his handsomest. And it's the role that made Winona Ryder's career (sorry, Stranger Things). Beetlejuice is everywhere each Halloween season, which makes it ...…
 
"Pet Sematary" might be Stephen King's biggest '80s movie hit, but is it any good after 30 years? That depends on whether you value good moviemaking over good writing. Find out what The Ramones had to do with getting this movie made, why you shouldn't let your cat outside, when it's safe to picnic in Maine, why Fred Gwynne sounds like a '40s de ...…
 
"Friday the 13th" changed the world of horror movies when in debuted in 1980, picking up the slasher flick genre where "Halloween" left off. The cast's biggest star was an unknown Kevin Bacon, and the budget was a measly $550,000. With that, "Friday The 13th" made Camp Crystal Lake, Jason Voorhees, and "Ki ki ki, ma ma ma" household names. King ...…
 
Halloween is in the air, and the Shat crew is ready to get spoopy! Forty years after "Halloween" introduced America to Michael Myers and one week before Jamie Lee Curtis returns in the 11th installment of the series, we examine the original to see if it holds up. Big D explains the "Star Trek" origins of the Michael Myers mask and questions the ...…
 
"Gleaming The Cube" brought skateboard culture to the big screen with one of the weirdest plots we've seen to date: A skater Christian Slater investigates the accidental murder of his adopted Vietnamese brother while Tony Hawk delivers pizza. The villains are stereotypical. The action scenes defy the laws of physics. The blood looks more like K ...…
 
If you've never fallen in love with a friend, consider yourself lucky. If you've ever fallen in love with a friend, consider this romcom a treasure. "When Harry Met Sally" used to just be "That Meg Ryan orgasm scene movie" when we were kids. But like the title characters, we've grown up and better understand the intricacies of romance. The ques ...…
 
When you think "My Cousin Vinny," you might think "Joe Pesci comedy classic," but there's a lot more to this 1992 North-meets-South courtroom farce. For Gene, there's Marisa Tomei at her finest: A charming Mona Lisa Vito with a heart of gold and a wardrobe to match. She's the ultimate '90s Italian heartthrob who delivers the best lines of the m ...…
 
Arnold Schwarzenegger considered "Last Action Hero" the beginning of the end of his film career. After a string of blockbusters, Arnold had a flop on his hands. "Last Action Hero" — a self-referential parody of every action movie that made Arnold's career — didn't sit well with fans who didn't know what to make of it. Oh, and it was competing w ...…
 
When "Arachnophobia" was released in in 1990, advertisers were uncertain as to whether they should market the film as a thriller or a comedy. Therefore, television spots promoting the film billed it as a "thrill-omedy". Apparently, nobody saw Ghostbusters or Ghostbusters II. With Gene out traveling, Big D & Roger welcome back Kerri Gross to the ...…
 
"Armageddon" showed us exactly what happens when mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer teams up with ultra-director Michael Bay: Everything's big, loud, and explodey. The 1998 summer blockbuster mixed an all-star cast with top-notch special effects and all the flag-waving that could be crammed into 160 minutes. Big D, Roger, and Gene blast off for di ...…
 
“Road House” invented the good bad movie. But was it actually any good? Patrick Swayze was charming but grossly undersized. The script was quotable but largely nonsense. And did you know Road House is two words? Whether you relished Sam Elliot’s smooth bass and glorious mane or cringed at the ridiculousness of tearing out throats, one thing is ...…
 
"In The Mouth of Madness" is a cult film that pioneered themes that pushed the boundaries of cinema from 1994 to present day: self-referential film making, Lovecraftian horror, and the general questioning of reality. But does it deserve to be labeled a horror classic? Every spooky twist on insanity is hamstrung by an awkward acting performance. ...…
 
Was "Heat" a star-studded, heart-racing heist movie or a bloated collection of subplots better suited to a mini-series? Michael Mann's masterpiece put Al Pacino and Robert De Niro on the screen together for the first time, and its star-studded cast included Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore, Jon Voight, Bud Cort, Hank Azaria, Dennis Haysbert, and a youn ...…
 
A 40-year-old, hypersexualized rock star in a codpiece who calls himself a Goblin King steals a baby and tries to seduce the child's 15-year-old sister among dismembered Muppets, roofies, and suggestive lyrics. Yeah, we're gonna keep this one real professional. You get ALL FOUR SHAT THE MOVIES HOSTS IN ONE! Roger sees masterful symbolism. Gene ...…
 
Was Chunk fat-shamed or fat-famed? Does foreclosure really need to be explained? What's the proper etiquette for wishing well coin collection? And does One-Eyed Willy's hoard count as buried treasure or a fortune lost at sea? Gene and Big D fight for the honor of "The Goonies" as Roger argues it's childish nonsense. In "The Gooonies," a band of ...…
 
Arnold Schwarzenegger plays the Terminator, a cyborg assassin sent back in time from 2029 to 1984 to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), whose son will one day become a savior against machines in a post-apocalyptic future.

Like Cristal Connors (Gina Gershon) and Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley) bonding over their shared joy of eating the same brand of dog food, Roger, Dick and Kerri sit down to discuss the 1995 Paul Verhoeven "Classic" Showgirls.

Jeff Bridges plays Jeff Lebowski who insists on being called "the Dude," a laid-back, easygoing burnout who happens to have the same name as a millionaire whose wife owes a lot of dangerous people a whole bunch of money -- resulting in the Dude having his rug soiled, sending him spiraling into the Los Angeles underworld. Shop Amazon With Our Fr ...…
 
Can you really call it a movie "Speed" when it only goes 17 knots? Can you call a movie "Speed" when it doesn't have Keanu Reaves? Can you even call this thing a movie? Impossible physics, premarital bickering, misplaced comedy, pedophilia, and a fundamental misunderstanding of copper poisoning make this one of the worst films Shat The Movies h ...…
 
Poker talk, smart voiceovers, Matt Damon in gigantic clothes, Ed Norton as Tyler Durden, John Malkovich butchering an accent, and John Turturro showing his deeper side. "Rounders" is the gold standard for poker movies, and listener Greg R. loves it so much he sponsored this review. In this episode, Roger reveals his gambling addiction. Gene rev ...…
 
Spaceballs wins our Best of John Candy category, bringing Roger and Gene together against Big D for the first time ever. Hop aboard the Spaceball One as we blast through the fourth wall, celebrate Rick Moranis, learn about George Lucas' involvement, and debate whether this movie is funny at all. Roger quotes basically the entire movie. Gene giv ...…
 
Backdraft taught us to yell at fires, run into burning buildings, cool off our sexy 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 f ...…
 
A deliciously young Val Kilmer, an even more delicious young Sarah Jessica Parker (played by Gabriel Jarret), a billion lasers, boring montages, horny cosmetologists, unreal liquid nitrogen, unbelievable penis hammering, Jesus in the teeth, Tear for Fears, and the most famous popcorn scene since Troll 2. "Real Genius" (1985) took the '80s nerd ...…
 
The most iconic scenes in movie history, sexy Jeff Goldblum, goosebumps aplenty, a triceratops turd too high, hyperconfident scientists, unnecessary fence climbs and adorable velociraptors made 1993's "Jurassic Park" a movie unlike any other. Roger defends the strength of fiberglass. Gene actually has fun for once, and Kerri downs an entire bot ...…
 
Premature kilts, revised history, foppish Brits, Crossfit Scots, a 40-year-old Mel Gibson, a hot 9-year-old princess, undying love, and a romance nobody wanted to see. "Braveheart" brought a new degree of violence and complexity to the historical action genre and made 3 hours fly by. Don't miss Roger Roeper's triumphant and sexually-charged ret ...…
 
Laughable wardrobes, finding excuses for Jean Claude Van Damme to kick things, gratuitous Belgian sex, gratuitous Belgian sax, an avalanche of one-liners, massive plot holes and The Splits Over Troubled Waters ... it's Timecop! Gene gets deep into physics and time travel theory. Kerri eviscerates the previously unknown "Timecop is like Blade Ru ...…
 
Soundtrack of the gods, camel-punching, surprise romance, imperfect allies, meaty snakes, cannibalistic orgies, and a unanimous Shat Score. Conan The Barbarian often is lumped in the same shitpile as other fantasy movies, including its sequel, but this abused gem gets nearly everything right. Hear all the reasons to love this not-quite-blockbus ...…
 
A sparkling Sharon Stone, labyrinth storylines, crappy explosions, loud suits, popping eyeballs, James Woods pimpin', and a Joe Pesci blowjob? When you want it all, "Casino" delivers. And it takes 3 tectonic hours to do it. Guest host Kerri Gross lends a female touch (sorta), encourages domestic violence (sorta), and tells us about the one time ...…
 
"Med students explore to see what might lie beyond death" might be the advertisement, but what we got was the old bait-and-switch. Instead of that exploration, Flatliners gives us pseudo-Freudian analysis delivered by 1990's Brat Pack 2.0... all of which we found surprisingly enjoyable.
