The heat is on, as Glenn Frey would say -- fitting that it's from Miami Vice, a TV show right in the era that Dave, Mikey, & Dr Earl take on tonight! The summer films from 1985 thru 1989, any movie that came out from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend in those respective years.
And the lists of "could be in my Top Five" are growing every block of movie years, and so it was important we bring on someone who was in their movie prime as the guys are -- Nick, host of Podcast of The Whills (and the new MOM CU), joins the show for the first time to break it all down and list them all out.
First up, a little chat on what exactly Podcast of the Whills actually is (hint: its from a Star War), then a little Brat Pack guess 'em game -- think you know the 80s movies of Andrew McCarthy, Judd Nelson, Rob Lowe, and Emilio Estevez? Think you know who woo'd Molly Ringwald in "Fresh Horses" or who was the plucky lawyer in "From the Hip"? Play along, see if you can be the one in the group who dominated.
Then the Top Five Summer Films of 1985 thru 1989 -- some pretention of course... He-Man... Mel Brooks... Elisabeth Shue love... Dottie from Pee Wee love... Joey Pants mourns Ritchie... hot Cyrano de Bergerac talk... "I'll Buy THAT For a Dollar!"... d$'s pick for the best Vietnam movie ever made... and much more in a great discussion about the late 80s classics.
Movies discussed and where they are streaming at the time of episode's recording:
