"You remind me of the babe.."

In this special episode, Leasha watches one of Richard's childhood favorites for the first time. We visit the magical and musical world of the 80s cult classic, Labyrinth. That's right - she's never seen it. Can you believe? 

Join us on a harrowing journey through the maze where we discuss all the glitter, the allure of David Bowie's bulge, Jennifer Connelly's enduring cuteness, the stunning creature effects (WE LOVE LUDO), the magnificent soundtrack, and more.

DANCE MAGIC DANCE!

I KNOW YOU ARE, BUT WHAT AM I? In this week's episode, we tried something a little different. Richard has never seen Pee Wee's Big Adventure, one of Leasha's favorite childhood films. Let's just say, he's generally confused. We dive into this cult classic and talk about Pee Wee's fun house and badass bike, the toothbrush and the tape, Francis' bath tub, creepy Mickey, Large Marge, the Alamo, scary clown dreams, and more! So grab your bike and come along on this crazy adventure with us.

Movie lovers - it's morphin' time! In honor of the new Power Rangers movie, we take a look back at the movie that first brought our heroes to the big screen. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie is ridiculous, puntastic, and makes no sense. But Leasha and her sister Tobi still have a great time picking apart this awesomely bad B-movie. We discuss Ivan Ooze's real nefarious plan, extreme sports, bad dubbing, karate action and wire work, and how Mariska Hargitay almost played a role. Join us for a deep dumpster dive into this mildly enjoyable, mostly terrible film.

NOTE: Some older clips were from videos pulled originally from VHS tapes. The quality wasn't great, but we did what we could to clean them up for you.

Hey, movie lovers! Get ready to go to lunch as we take a look at David Mamet's stage-to-screen classic, "Glengarry Glen Ross." This razor-sharp film features remarkable performances, memorable monologues, and tension for days. We'll discuss Alec Baldwin's brief yet iconic appearance, Al Pacino's sales techniques, Shelley's desperation, and of course, THE LEADS! We love this film and hope you do too. And remember...ABC - Always Be Closing.

We assure you - it's awesome!
