This past weekend, I joined the gang from UnderGopher so that we might talk–at length–about a subject that is near and dear to my heart: 80s action movies!
As someone who “came of age” in the 80s, I have a soft spot for many things to spring from that decade: video game arcades, some of the music, very little of the fashion, a decent selection of television shows, and a whole bunch of the movies. In particular, I am a huge geek of the “action movie genre,” and there was a metric assload of these films released during the 1980s.
Sitting down with Brady, Kevin, and Dustin, we spent the better part of two hours going through the decade, year by year, and hitting most of the great flicks to come out during this period. We also hit more than a few of the “less than stellar” additions to the list. There’s no way we could get to them all, and several we either bypassed completely or gave passing mention because they’re deserving of their own discussion (we’d already done the Bond movies in separate podcasts, here and here, for example). It was a total blast hanging out with the guys, and as it happens I’ll be doing it again before you know it. Next month, for a different topic.
In the meantime, stick this in your ears:
Thanks again to Brady, Dustin, and Kevin for inviting me to the UnderGopher lair for yet another spirited discussion!
