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....

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 "Cri...

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...

  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 i...

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 on...

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...

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...

"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 ...

"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...

"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...

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 C...

"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 late...

"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 mo...

"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...

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 ...

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 ...

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...

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...
