For this year’s October Donor Pick, we gave the Patrons a list of vampire movies to choose from. The winner takes us back to the 80’s for a teen horror comedy spin on blood suckers that helped to shape what the sub-genre would look like in the future.
This week we continue our Batman v Superman celebration by covering the first of three films centering on the blue boy scout himself, beginning with Richard Donner’s 1978 entry that set the tone for what an entire genre of film looks like today. We challenge ourselves to consider both this film’s value as a trend-setter and whether it holds up today.
Hey, you guys! This week’s film was determined via listener vote, and you chose a beloved 80’s adventure movie with plenty to talk about. For one of us it’s full of nostalgia and for the other it’s a totally new experience. But ultimately we both land on common ground in thinking that this is one of the most fun and well done adventure films we’ve seen. It’s a great conversation about how when we view a movie affects our experience, and we hope you enjoy.
