49:2330 years on I revisit this personal favourite. It bombed so hard at the time but honestly it made me laugh so hard when I was 11 years old, it introduced me to Chris Farley and made me an even bigger fan of Dan Aykroyd. Would I still be amused all these years later? Ipswich based comic, songwriter and author Robin Dicker watched it for the first time, here are our thoughts.

Addicted to Love (1997) Edgy rom-com ahead of it's time or a misjudged attempt thats best forgotten?
48:09This 1997 Rom-com had the stars and a big cinema release but did not preform at the Box Office and is now forgotten. Had the cinema going public gotten it wrong and this darker movie for Meg Ryan and Matthew Broderick was ahead of it's time and deserves another look, or was it simply a misjudgement that is best left in the bargain bin of a now abandoned blockbuster video? I'm a fan of the movie but not seen it in years, I showed it to James Rowe from King Street Cinema, this is what we had to say about it... What are your thoughts and memories of this movie? Do let us know
Mini Episode - Thelma & Louise, new season preview.
10:40I was at my local multiplex on an evening off, I'd seen pretty much everything apart from Fast X, I was about to buy a ticket when I noticed there was a screening of Thelma and Louise, a 30 plus year old movie I had never seen. I figured I'd give it a go. Although not really the kind of film we cover on the show I thought I would talk about my thoughts briefly and tell you about some future episodes and guest we have coing up on the podcast.
Explorers (1985) - Did Dante peak with Gremlins? A fresh look at this mid-80s family sci -fi adventure.
54:09In our first episode of 2023 we focus on 1985 flop Explorers, a movie I had never seen but certainly been aware of for quite some time. Ipswich based artist/illustrator Ian Pointer grew up with the movie, he rewatched it, I watched it for the first time and we had a chat about our thoughts. Is it an underrated should be classic or one that should remain in at the bottom of a blockbuster bargain bin?
Ernest Saves Christmas (1988)
56:01A Christmas treat that I watched over and over on video as a kid. It was shown on a regular basis on T.V for years but now seems forgotten. Owen from The Pookajee Players joins me for a chat about this should be classic. He's new to this film..... will he enjoy it as much as me or has nostalgia clouded my views? Our final podcast of 2022. We'll be back with more very soon.
BMX Bandits (1983)
53:29A movie that seemed to be on TV every week in the UK in the early 90s, everybody I knew as a kid seemed to love it but one I never got around to watching. Remembered now for being an early starring role for Nicole Kidman, this movie didn't take world by storm but those who did see it seemed to enjoy it. A childhood favourite of King Street Cinema's James Rowe, we watched it and recorded this podcast of our thoughts, me as a newcomer and James as a long time fan.
Ernest Scared Stupid - Halloween Special
1:03:49Ernest is a popular character is America and although not a hit at the box office this has become a Halloween favourite over there. One I enjoyed very much as a kid and still like to this day but I'm in the minority? In the UK, most haven't even heard of the lovable character. I showed it to podcast regular James Rowe (King Cinema Ipswich) Would he enjoy it also or have my views been clouded with nostalgia?
The Hidden - Is This......The Hidden Gem of 80's Movies??
57:31A movie that had certainly passed me by over the 35 years since it's release. Buddy cop movie, sci-fi, horor,action, comedy... it has it all. Recommended by James from King Street Cinema Ipswich, We sat down watched it and had a chat. ....I'm glad we did, a real treat.
NICOLAS CAGE SPECIAL - The Elvis years Wild at Heart & Hooneymoon in Vegas
1:03:58A Massive talent??? well I think so. I chat with fellow Cage fan Dave Kennington about two 90's Cage based movies that can be loosely linked through Elvis. These are two I loved growing up but what will a newcomer think and do I think they hold up?
