It’s our very special Christmas episode! Well, it’s not that special… but it’s about Home Alone, the classic 1990 Chris Colombus film written by John Hughes and starring Macaulay Culkin. In equal parts about Christmas and physical abuse, Home Alone was a big hit when it came out now, but does it hold up now? How is Home Alone like a Cormac McCarthy novel? Is Elvis Presley alive and hanging out with John Candy? To hear us answer these questions and more, download the link below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes! And be sure to follow us on Twitter!

Episode 20- Weird Science

Remember back in the ’80s when computers were magic? You know, scanners had cloning capability, teenagers were able to hack into secret government databases, that kind of thing. Weird Science is John Hughes’ throwback to the EC Comics anthology of the same name from the 1950s, but Weird Science couldn’t be indicative of the 1980s.

Does it stand the test of time? Is Anthony Michael Hall a racist? Why doesn’t Oingo Boingo provide songs for more movies? Could the whole film be viewed as a prequel to Titanic? Why was Robert Downey Jr. such a prick before he… hmm… I guess he’s always been kind of a prick.
