***We wanted you to check out our new podcast, Unkind Rewind, so we've dropped the newest pair of episodes into the feed. They are a real blast. We have another couple cycles of movies that we've done which are just as awesome--Labyrinth with Kay from F**k My Work Life and Night of the Creeps with one of Josh's industry buddies from L.A., Leon Henderson Jr.--so there's more Unkind Rewind out there to take in immediately if you're digging what you hear. We won't be dropping new eps in the Munch My Benson public feed often, so if you like what you hear, please subscribe to the podcast on its own page in your podcatcher or you can watch on our YouTube Channel! Firstborn is conveniently streaming on Netflix in the U.S.***

We sat down with LA Weekly/Village Voice film reviewer Chad Byrnes and dove into the borderline traumatic childhood viewing experience that was seeing Firstborn--a cautionary tale about letting pinball, cocaine, Coleman grills (and Big Charcoal, by proxy), and Peter Weller into your single-parent home--in the movie theater with his divorcée mother. We also celebrate the creative forces that were Peter Weller, Michael Apted, Teri Garr, and Corey Haim, while wondering what happened to Christopher Collet, all of whom were great in this 1984 heightened family trauma drama. Come for the discussion of seeing a movie with your mom that traumatized you both, stay for tons of talk praising Corey Haim, speculation that RoboCop derailed Peter Weller's acting career, and the offer of unequivocal proof that Sam was lying about his baseball-playing past.
