Come listen to the podcast, we’ll get together, have a few laughs… It’s time for our final 1988 movie and that perennial Christmas favorite (or is it?)… DIE HARD.
Have you ever had one of those days where all you want to do is knock off some old lady who witnessed a crime that you helped commit and you keep accidentally killing her prized pet dogs instead? No? Oh… um… okay then. I’m just going to step out for a moment and you can listen to us talk about A Fish Called Wanda.
It’s the same old story. Boy starts podcast, boy watches movies with friends, friends cohost with boy, podcast gets to 1988, 1988 sees the release of The Naked Gun, boy and friends podcast about The Naked Gun without dying in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Year’s Day. I’d say that’s a good year.
Well… listen to this podcast gently with a chainsaw. It’s Heathers, the dark comedy that probably couldn’t get made today. In fact, they tried and it failed. Does this movie stand the test of time and live on, or does its teen angst have too high of a body count?
