Transcript
intro:

You're listening to a mid life less ordinary, the weekly podcast giving you the lowdown on becoming a cool older dude. The good times are not afraid of memory. It's time to start loving them again. And here are your hosts Wayne and tribe.

Wayne:

Yeah, Hello again everyone and welcome to a midlife less ordinary. And today's episode is entitled Wayne and Trev'sExcellent Adventure excellent.

Trev:

Trev's here as always our from the hip vocally.

Wayne:

Now while you're firing from the hip Trev Could you maybe explain why we called it that and maybe about the films that we represent him with the title?

Trev:

Well, to be honest, again, gain on this on nostalgia trip of movies this time. I was really looking forward to the third bit intead coming out. Yeah. Because I really like the first one is GIS real good fun. Goodness now. Oh, yeah. When even when you watch it, I bought it on 4k and watched it again. And it stands up now. For like, just a really good fun movie. I felt like I was one of them back in the day, because I was a bit of that kind of airhead, dude. Yeah, you can't help yourself Kenya, it just and they had their own way of speaking which I think when you are a young man, you and your mates and I mean you have always had and some of the other guys, I'm not too bad boys have your own kind of language. Yeah. You feel like you're sort of that really, really summed it up for me. It was just, I think there's Well, I think you'll you you'll agree as well as we were quite obsessed with American culture worldwide. Yes. In your skull. Yeah, it seems like a lot. The whole kind of like the sort of body warmers or is utilized. I didn't call to visualize that says he's just a body warm, or I say Baxter future life preserver. They were great. And I think we were quite obsessed with Nike, then. Yes, I don't think I was really overly aware of Nike as a mic until I saw the white and red ones in Back to the Future.

Wayne:

Yes.

Trev:

I'm sure. Because, yeah, because we came from obviously, more of a football background as kids. Yeah. So it was it was sort of Patrick's not what block Butch Butch Wilkins, new balance, wasn't it? Yeah, Bryan Robson wasn't Yes, yes, that Yeah. But that was the whole thing it was. And then all of a sudden, like, like, in these American films, you were seeing Nike trainers. I think that introduced us. I remember one of the guys we both know very well from school. Had a pair of those

Wayne:

mics. Yeah, I'm not jealous at all.

Trev:

No, not so but now going back to bill and Ted did quite a lot. The second one I must admit, the second one's pretty good. some really cool bands in it. Primus was I was really excited to privacy the movie and not to mine five, nine Moore's in it, which was really good. But and the introduction of death in it was great, wasn't it? Yes. It's one of the best lines in it like the man with no tan. Excellent. But the third one, I don't know how many of our listeners have seen the third one. I'd like to have their thoughts on it. Have you seen the third one? No, I

Wayne:

haven't actually, I'm not as big a fan as you are.

Trev:

Probably the middle music. Yes. It doesn't it with my you know, any any reference to Iron Maiden? I'll put them in the Iron Maiden for the first one. Loved it.

Wayne:

So even from a nostalgia perspective, the third one didn't didn't didn't stimulate?

Trev:

Not at all. No, I don't think so. I think he's had a bit of an easy cop out with movies. Because the main characters are older. They they bring their siblings into it a bit like a sort of creed. Yes. Rocky and stuff. I think it's a bit of a cop out. Really. It's like even with creed. No creed was good. Yeah, I enjoyed the first crude movie. And it was obvious to go that way, wasn't it? Yes. Yeah, I read the whole drug. I was sad. And now and I must have been what I've read. What was happening with it? I was like, This is gonna be great. And it's not great, but it's good. Yeah. But yeah, I think that's a bit of a cop out with the CDs, passing of the torch, isn't it? Yes. You know, you

Wayne:

just don't think they're gonna do a full novel way to get six movies out of it.

Trev:

So it's all franchise, isn't it? Yeah, that's the problem that that's that. I think people that aren't really particularly into movies. don't really understand that. That it's about getting three or four films. Yeah. As as a as a banker, money wise. That's what they do. If you know they they think about sequels before they've even finished a script of some of them. Exactly. But yeah, you don't want to think They're gonna bring their siblings into a TV show or something, you know that that's that's what and then again that was down the legacy of the original. Yeah, if you were to nine three films, nostalgic way from sort of the 80s and 90s What would they be your free films with Chevy they say if you say dirty dance

Wayne:

I think if you're speaking to any young lady you know of a certain vintage that that probably would be in their top three I'm pretty woman and ghosts maybe but you know from 1990 But no, I there are my four five and six lists about

Trev:

once a month and you put those on

Wayne:

we're not definitely that's another big controversial draft controversial and so yeah, for top three I mean, if we're not talking about the movies that are there to evoke nostalgia feeling like such as ready play a go and then kind of films we're actually talking 80s and what sums it up for me

Trev:

not the new ones that are trying are trying to evoke those

Wayne:

feelings. I would say for me if we're going to take out obviously away all the Star Wars stuff.

Trev:

Yeah, we're just

Wayne:

gonna go that exists pure nostalgia. I've got to say probably ET I didn't I didn't actually think of that one. But that is a good call. It just evokes that 80s feeling because the book bx is in a such a big movie at the time. I would also say Back to the Future, funnily enough

Trev:

because I that was the first one I thought of Yeah, that one that's Yeah, that that we can't beat it.

Wayne:

You can watch it over and over again. Great fine. Yeah, still enjoy it as much.

Trev:

The funny thing is I've watched all three of those again recently. Again, I think I was mentioned in the last episode about the kind of watching feel good movies and that was one of my sort of Coronavirus, depression things and I always thought the third one was the weakest out of all of them watch it again

Wayne:

I've Yeah, it's not as bad it's a good it was done back to back with the second was

Trev:

yes and you can see it which is good. Yeah, the continuity but to be honest, he is a delight. Obviously I really would like him Walker's easy topper in it yeah love that track though back Oh, he's a really good song song. But he's not that bad. Anybody clever? Yeah, well,

Wayne:

it's it's I enjoyed it it's funny I watch that Christmas day and I exactly what you're just saying I enjoyed it more I used to avoid watching that one but actually I really enjoyed it.

Trev:

Yes, it's a really enjoyable I don't know. I think that's one of the things that really is good for the battery banks of the future is how clever they are. The writing is brilliant. Yes Really is it just it's the how and and what I like about it as well is we've a lot of time traveling films is they try to get so clever and so deep that you actually lose track of what's going on yes timeline Back to the Future doesn't do that in my opinion. it you know exactly where you are. You know exactly yeah, I think for a time travel film is Purves top is definitely there is others that are really good. Don't get me wrong, but yeah, anyway you tell us Back to the Future I'd got that

Wayne:

I thought that one so I'm glad we can agree on something. So we know what we do when we can actually all catch up we watching if we if we've gone off the old into the dragon and picking apartment in favor of ours. Team America. Yeah, that would that was funny because it reminds me of the first time I watched it when because obviously we were talking about this in the previous episode about your love of puppets and you know, yeah, TV and there was a masterstroke is a is brilliant. I love I'm not as big a fan as you. And I remember coming out and you said, I've got this team and Moravec and it'll be good. And you put it on. Oh my god. I've never laughed so much in my life.

Trev:

Yeah, it was stunning. What they just did. But what an ingenious idea.

Wayne:

Yeah, exactly.

Trev:

I think he I think he's because it's stone and Parker. I can't think of their names now. Yeah. Trey Parker. That's it. Yeah, but I think because they're Canadian. Yes. works more than anything. Yeah. Because they're able to kind of stand back from the American Exactly. Are our flag waving and but I think this world a bit like Mike Myers was with Austin Powers. I think they're so into British culture. That they probably did watch Thunderbirds Yeah. And I know Mike Myers did watch like carry on films and stuff like that. Yeah. So that that that's where it is. I think they got that really they got it bang on me and he roar did we were watching that. Oh, this time unbelievable. Watch it again for a while I

Wayne:

should watch that. This is actually it was on day one of the channels I was flicking through and I was sitting there with the nine year old Mystery confront it is on and then a part come up that I can't really describe because even though we class This podcast is explicit, we try and avoid it if we can. Yeah, the bits come up. And it was something to do with Gary. And I, and I was wanting to watch it, but obviously I couldn't watch it with a nine year old sitting there. So

Trev:

I think as well, it makes Team America makes no apologies to being so in your face with the sort of sexism police doesn't care. Sometimes it's refreshing. Yeah, baby. He's done very well. It's not just because it's

Wayne:

puppets as well. You don't take it as a joke straightaway, isn't it? Exactly.

Trev:

Spot on. But yeah, so

Wayne:

you said, I'm sorry. So we got back to the future. And if we're gonna pick another one, and this one might be a slightly curveball, but Top Gun takes me right.

Trev:

Yeah. Yeah, again, I watched that the other day in 4k cuz I'm on the 4k trip. And yeah, he's, he's, he's really good. You can't help but really like it. But that's more of a kind of young adults film is yes. Yeah. Yeah. No, it's like,

Wayne:

cuz we're 14 when that come out when we so

Trev:

yeah, so we will probably I think we probably would enjoy it more now.

Wayne:

That's why I'm saying. Yeah, to evoke memories of being that age.

Trev:

These are the movies I watch. What do you think the new one would be like?

Wayne:

I think it'll be probably pants and we'll probably cane it. But I'll still watch. Can't wait to watch it. Yeah,

Trev:

Samia, y'all really want to say God bless Tony Scott, by the way. Yeah, yeah. Well, so filmmaker true I made a lot of movie. Yeah, yeah. Gary Oldman are in there. He's just strikes or just

Wayne:

really brilliant film. Yeah, True Romance. Is it? I mean, that's early 90s, isn't it?

Trev:

Yeah, it's that's great. I think that's probably the lie. I've Tarantino wrote it, didn't he? Yeah, he took it. He took his name off it, didn't he? That's right. Yeah, duh. Why? Why there's one line in there that just I think my love affair with Gary Oldman was it's that and Leon But anyway, again, get back onto the subject that we were supposed to be.

Wayne:

So what do you worry about your free obviously trip for the for people to the future?

Trev:

Yeah, yeah, definitely. I don't think about people watching them. I would have thought most people 99% people have although we have a message you say and some people haven't seen Star Wars but it's still fine. That'd be like a sort of listening to a like a podcast in Peru language. Well, I haven't done actually speak Peruvian, but I did enjoy. Ghostbusters. Yes. Well, yeah. Bill Murray. I'm strange enough of Groundhog Day on on the moment with the sound down. Which is good. But yeah, but Ghostbusters show? Yeah, what a different movie Ghostbusters could have been. Yes. If anybody's seen that documentary that's rockin about Ghostbusters. It's great.

Wayne:

I thought another one as well as a new one coming out of that trip. Are you looking forward to Yeah,

Trev:

I am. Because Paul runs it. It will all fall man crush on Paul. I just love the guy. I don't know why. Just because you can see it. Yeah. Yeah, he's just a guy. You'd never let you down. And you know, he's a massive rush fan, which is great. But yeah, I'm looking for that because of that. But the Ghostbusters movie who hasn't seen that documentary could have been so different because they actually it wasn't gonna be Bill Murray. In that movie. It was actually going to the three there's only gonna be three of them. And it was gonna be Dan Aykroyd, john Belushi and Eddie Murphy. JOHN Belushi. Yes. Imagine what a movie that would have been. too big. My pants are filling up just thinking now. Massive job I love john Belushi and I love Eddie Murphy. So what a film that would have been but then Bill Murray is great, isn't he?

Wayne:

Yes. No. You can't imagine anyone else's venkman No,

Trev:

no you can't the walk by the found in. Yeah, good dry sense of humor. Yeah, yeah, exactly. And I think that made me really like Bill marks of a Big Bill Murray fan as well.

Wayne:

You what you like stripes before that.

Trev:

Stripes. Stripes is great. Apart from the end, isn't it? Yeah. The stripes. He's really good. I thought what about Bob? But she Caddyshack Mary. Mary runs show. Yeah, everything. I just like a lot of the all of your stuff. And the other film I think was Gremlins. Yes. This was huge. Just algae wise.

Wayne:

It created a lot of controversy didn't it at the time because they said it was scary like a horrific

Trev:

war. Which, which I think is good. It was like a kind of a genre crossing film because yeah, as you say, it was quite scary and quite violent in place. Yeah. But it just seemed to work so well. And it's a shame that God only has a major recapture that I watch Small Soldiers again. That's okay. That's right. Yeah. But I'll tell you what he if anybody can take out the the original Twilight Zone movie, and there's some great stuff really brilliant. That knows. And the funny the weird thing about the Twilight Zone movie is the weakest story out of the four is Steven Spielberg's one gets that. And talking to Spielberg, that's another one. jaws. jaws. Yeah. Close Encounters.

Wayne:

Close Encounters. Yeah.

Trev:

Those two. Yeah, jaws again jaws?

Wayne:

Because we probably shouldn't have seen it. No. And it was scary when I first watched it. Yeah. Huh. The hell out of the boat. Yeah, the camerawork of that that was fantastic was on the beach. And you don't see this as a great lesson. Yeah. In how to make a movie where you don't see the monster for for ages and be able to suspense the music, john Williams. Fantastic all come together just

Trev:

the I can name a few sort of other movies that I really hold fondly from that. That era of some reason. You remember when we were talking about TV shows loss on Jimmy Kimmel or blue Thunder? That's all Yeah, bit like that was good.

Wayne:

Roy Snyder again. Yeah, for sure. I'd

Trev:

have yet French Connection. Or for some reason as well, it probably wasn't aimed at me, but I don't know why I like this movie of Firefox. I really like that. Oh, Clint Eastwood. Yeah, I

Wayne:

don't know why he's not a kid is a spy thriller in it. Yeah.

Trev:

Yeah. But this idea of someone nicking a jet and him being stuffy. Just kind of.

Wayne:

He's always been activities. We know he's still making movies.

Trev:

Yeah, still playing golf. Strangely enough, which is like, the last Starfire as a kid film.

Unknown:

Yes.

Trev:

I think one of the reasons I think that's so good. Is who didn't want to be abducted by aliens? Because you are good at video games. Exactly. Yeah. All talking of which you haven't mentioned when I'm surprised with Jeff Bridges. You haven't mentioned Tron? No Tron? Yes. I love it. Either bedspread and everything. I tried to rebel against my star wars and as when I was because everybody loved it. And I was like, No, I can't have this. I've got to find something else. And I just went mad for Tron. And the black hole. I know you love the black hole. Yeah. Yeah, it was a strange film, wasn't it? Because it was Disney film. Yeah. Leave a kid's film. But he's quite serious. Like Star Trek filter it hasn't it? Yes. Yeah. And Andy Perkins is in it.

Wayne:

Yes. Sorry.

Trev:

Yes, bald nine. Another one. Yeah. But it's a little bit like a bee got these cutesy little robots? Babatunde I can't think of the other ones called Old Bob. trends of instant instant. Yes. And that's it. Everybody went down was a voice. Yes. Right there. That really bizarre, but it was quite serious as well. If you're trying to get on the Star Wars thing, Disney. They missed it completely. But

Wayne:

they may or they may take equally Yeah. Not equally as good. But I mean, it has its own field. But for Disney. I wouldn't believe it.

Trev:

No, because I actually had a few of the figures from the black toys. Yeah, we still got them. No, no, that'd be worth it. I've got one of the Tron ones. One of the real problems in a packet. But a blister pack. Should I say for collectors with who would want as a kid collect light figures from the black hole because they were just like, some welders. Yeah, but what was the ship called?

Wayne:

Are the new I'm thinking of alien and everything else. Yeah, extend. Palomino, Palomino. Yes,

Trev:

yes, well, just a hoax, wasn't it? Yes,

Wayne:

it's a white horse, isn't it? Is it right in and tell us if we're wrong? It's not important to the plot here. You

Trev:

know, the one that everybody really holds close to their heart as I understand you feel but I'm not the biggest fan I like it. But I'm not mad on it. Namely, man. Oh,

Wayne:

we talked about it but I suppose occasion.

Trev:

Yeah, I think so. Go No, it's

Wayne:

not. It's not gonna be rocky like Rocky.

Trev:

No, no, no. Yeah, but it's, it's it is a kid's film with kids in it. They have given it away there. Oh, Goonies? Yeah, The Goonies always good, but people just love it and like, Yeah, really do. What do you want?

Wayne:

I like I like it. Yeah, but it's not a more of a Raiders of Lost Ark adventure. Maybe.

Trev:

See what it was with us as kids. We wanted to grow up and be matched. Oh, yes. That's the one that's why I don't really get the whole Harry Potter thing. Yeah. When I was a kid, I was The Indiana Jones or wanting to be the dude out Clash of the Titans or like Tron? I wouldn't want to be a speculative wizard when I'm

Wayne:

sorry any specie little wizards out there.

Trev:

Yeah, we lightning that was the thing I think it was more match I wasn't it then it was Yes. Black Boys Boys were the match to be a man. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Now it's like they want to but I don't know but yeah, that that was you don't go there No.

Wayne:

But you're right i think sorry to

Trev:

the other films that would really even flow into me as a teenager. Rambo would have been one of them as well guess what? I sold in sorcery style was Conan and Highlander. Highlander. Yeah,

Wayne:

we watched that school. I don't know. Yeah, we watch that school. I was watching a lot of assembly room in the second years senior. Or we'd gone now. No, it was great. But I just don't know why we was watching it.

Trev:

We're talking of sword and sorcery for films and stuff, because it was low.

Wayne:

Here. One we found Arnie in it and roadside officer. Yeah, and we use it. Yeah, that's right. That's what's the name Brigitte Nielsen.

Trev:

What's the one with the rocker hair in it?

Unknown:

crow? Oh, no. You said crow. Oh, something the juggler isn't

Wayne:

a comment. But yeah,

Trev:

I can't remember that one is?

Unknown:

Yeah. Blade Runner. We haven't.

Trev:

We haven't mentioned light runner. Yeah, obviously some of these films. We shouldn't have been old enough to watch. No, but because of the nostalgic pirate videos

Wayne:

Remember that? You had a video recorded before me you your middle seriously middle class for a socialist trip.

Trev:

I don't know how good I've got it. I didn't try to pretend to heaven.

Wayne:

But I suppose another one from next. I don't know if you I don't want to go into tonight what we've been up to at school we at that time, but it is in a second third year seniors school. We just got youth club. And they showed American Werewolf in London. Now that is a that felt like it was mine was too scary to be showing the 12 years.

Trev:

It's too good to be honest. American Wharf in London still scares me now.

Wayne:

Yeah,

Trev:

there's two there's two films that I've mentioned this before. In any of our episodes, there's two films that my brother might be watch when I was really young. And they still freaked me out. Now. One of them is American Wharf in London. About Love It features Britain amazing. One of the first kind of horror Sonic comedies just brilliant. And the other one is a shining, which just Yeah, I love it. Brilliant. Robbie. Going back to the sword and sorcery thing. Why do you think most of the universe didn't work?

Wayne:

Oh, I don't think it was the right time for it. But then that was when it was popular. So you wouldn't better leave it until computer graphics go up. It was a bit camp. I don't Yeah, I

Trev:

just didn't work. It wasn't big enough. For one. I don't know. I've got a really funny story about it. Because I saw that the cinema and I must have been 16 and I took a girl from college there. And we went and took her nephew. Yeah. And this was in the days as well that you were you could buy some toys in the toy. And they had a lot of plastic swords. He made them I don't like trying to be the good boyfriend and trying to you know get in the right side of her. I bought her her Nestle one of these plastic so you bought her a sword. I was gonna I was thinking about your romantic so yes. I tell you what, what, it was the worst mistake ever. Because he just wasn't interested in the universe. And all he wanted to do was bash me with this with the whole film. Honestly, and and you know, remember, do you remember when you your old lightsaber Jimmy was having a toy lightsaber and they were brilliant one night? Yeah. Still got rid of you. Really? The handle was red, wasn't it? Yes. Some of them my mom. Yes. But do you remember if you hit sank too hard. It would just bend the plastic. Yes. or hit me so much with this sword. That kind of well, just about me and bashed me but I can't put my finger on it. I don't know. I saw I watched a documentary about that. I watch loads of documentaries about movies. And those really looked back on it really fondly. Yeah. And and Franklin jela took the part really seriously for skeletal and he can't and he they seem to think the only reason it wasn't a success was because they pulled the bug on it. Yes. Yeah. Looks like budget. Yeah. Yeah. It was a cannon was it feel my role? Yes, I budget. And they couldn't make it the epic that he wanted to be, but go back and revisit it. Cuz a lot of fun really is honestly man,

Wayne:

I'll put I'll give that another chance by talking about you being here. I'm going to hit you with test drive now. Oh yeah, so I've got four questions for your trip and this week's test drive. They're not, they're not going to teach you too much. And hopefully you'll get them play along at home because I'm sure most of you will have seen these movies. Hopefully it will just use

Trev:

well to maybe write bring. send us questions in to do this. Yeah, that'd be good. I know some of you guys will probably be so overly geeky and just like put me aside. But you're welcome to it if anybody really wants to. Yeah, you

Wayne:

have you can test trip yourself.

Trev:

Yeah, yeah. Bang, bang, I'm on the site. Whatever. easiest ones.

Wayne:

So number one trip? Yep. Which 80s movie was the highest grossing film of the decade?

Trev:

80s.

Wayne:

So I'll give you a Not a clue as such but just a little hint. It's it's a past Star Wars so it's not Star Wars.

Trev:

Now genocide. You know.

Wayne:

We've been mentioned it was in no one said that. But it has been mentioned already.

Trev:

I'm good. It's all Back to the Future.

Wayne:

Before that, really? Before earlier in the 80s 80 Yes. And it's a past Star Wars to be the highest grossing film of all time and it held that record until Jurassic Park.

Trev:

video game didn't know did it the Atari

Wayne:

they buried it or did you see that? Oh, you showed it? Yeah, that was brilliant. Yeah, they landfilled it. Oh actually completed it. So I don't know what I said I had

Unknown:

no relevance

Wayne:

until now. It didn't it had the music digitized version.

Trev:

The other film we haven't we get your questions. Flash Gordon. Yes. Question number two.

Wayne:

See if you can guess this 99 you'll definitely get this this 1980s movie with the following quote. I am serious. And don't call me Shirley.

Trev:

What a movie that is. Yeah, that's great. airplane. Yes.

Wayne:

It's Dr. Leslie Nielsen.

Trev:

One of the best lines in airplane. I think, is what he says too. We've got a first one guy we've got to get him to a hospital or get her to a hospital. And the guy goes to what what is he goes to it's a big build we have people that kind of Zucker brothers are brilliant for

Wayne:

a movie you're not special effects and things like that grossed $83 million and was nominated for a Golden Globe

Trev:

it's so risky and it was yeah

Wayne:

it's still funny today again revisit if you haven't seen it, very funny. So

Trev:

funny man question free.

Wayne:

Which 1980s you know, which 1980s theme song was entirely instrumental and reached number one in multiple countries due to the due to a remix tutor remix although it seems obvious but to be and I'm gonna start I'm gonna give you a clue because actually been a it's a very broad question actually. Eddie Murphy theme song two entirely instrumental Eddie Murphy number one oh excuse my singing number free on the good news he were very funny movie as he made his prime proper prime Yeah. It was also went to number one in multiple countries. When Crazy Frog done a version of his

Trev:

I actually had actual held fault Am I wasn't it? Yeah, I had a 12 inch single. And the cover looks so 80s because they just put Eddie Murphy's picture of him seated on his car, the front you know, yes, I

Wayne:

know that when you may

Trev:

remember the 80s kind of wallpaper splatter paint. Yes. Look, it had that in a neon blue.

Wayne:

What have I remember that was that right there? Question for Trevon foot. Last but not least, which 80s movie I'd be very surprised if we don't do this. Which 80s movie was Alan Rickman first filter feature film roll.

Unknown:

I heard

Wayne:

Hans Gruber Yeah, that was until then he was a Shakespearean actor and TV. That's right. Yeah. He did not get paid anything for doing it to be nice.

Trev:

You can't imagine he made the film to me.

Unknown:

I really liked

Trev:

Yeah, top man.

Wayne:

I watched funny enough I watched on the strength of him because I liked revisiting this man was Truly Madly Deeply which is one of these is a very good film very of its time. But if you like Alan Rickman, and you liked him in the Harry Potter movies even you know it's worth watching great actor, Mr.

Unknown:

Documentaries is that

Wayne:

all our questions? That is you've done I'm gonna give you the four out of four for that trip. Yeah, I

Trev:

think so. You

Wayne:

think you've done well? Well done yeah,

Trev:

I think I did think favorite Elvis talking of documentaries. Have you seen the same Jones documentary? The Flash one? No. Great. Brilliant. Watch it man. The guy is so into it still when everything some guy actually actually got you know, the Peter Duncan. Yes, me for this. Yes. You know it, that he's actually got the mechanism that stings him. Yeah. How cool is that? It just it's just all photos. This takes it's a new documentary. It's all it's actually on the the new release of flash golden. They did. Okay. Did you know I'm gonna be really controversial here. I've already been controversial about Goonies, but they're talking about putting a warning on my on flash golden. Before.

Unknown:

Did you know this forgotten? Oh, yes. Because it says racial stereotype

Trev:

stereotyping. Yeah, and really I know obviously, but his babies mean so there is. But I've never even so about him being oriental. No. until I've heard this and I have stupid Am I so they're gonna pull Ghandi on a

Wayne:

thing, Kingsley's not oriental as far as I know.

Trev:

No, you're right. I never did was talk. And one of the reasons as well is because he weighs red and yellow in it a lot. And that symbolizes the Chinese flag Odia clutching at straws, yeah, lads, I think, do get a little bit of it. But really, it's mean it's a kid's face of ours. Yeah, yeah. Here. So I tried to develop a really funny picture post on my Instagram about that about Megan voles.

Wayne:

ref, check him out. Check it out if you have Instagram.

Trev:

That's a really good film as well, isn't it? Yes. The thing with Highlander and flash was the music as well. I

Wayne:

think we've recreated soundtrack Yeah,

Trev:

yeah, again, that that really would pull you in. But the thing is, we have a lot of these films like with the success of Star Wars, they all there are so many other movies that tried to be talked about in a black hole. But there was like Battlestar Galactica wasn't there? Yes. They tried to jump on it. That was a good TV show, wasn't it? Yeah. The funniest one out of them. And you wouldn't think it would be would work at all, but I think it does. And it's quite a funny movie. Was battle beyond the stars. Yes. Yeah. Which was like The Magnificent Seven done in space. It was Yes, Jules pap parties like driving like an actual kind of camper van spaceship. It's actually looks like a camper van. And like, yeah, there's a really bizarre film that they've got the kid at the woodlands was in it. JOHN boy, if anybody's seen it, john boy. Yeah, if anybody's seen it, again, leave a message and say what they thought of it. But when I was a kid watching that, there's a Valkyrie character in it a like a female warrior. And she lays down to fly a ship, which is like a really bizarre position. Not since Boba Fett stood up and flew slave one. I looked like he was flying slave one standing up, but, and she just got a lot of press hanging out in it.

Wayne:

That's definitely of his time.

Unknown:

Yes, exactly. She's just got her breasts hanging out just to sell a few more tickets.

Wayne:

Yeah.

Trev:

Unbelievable. Can you imagine if you were like a dead taking your kid to say that? Anyone are bloody or can't stand Soho? I have. Oh my god. All of a sudden, it's

Wayne:

my favorite genre. Yes.

Trev:

Yes, definitely. Okay, Sammy, you're really getting that bit back on again. It was just really I remember sitting there when you're like 11 and you're you're growing he's grown into

Unknown:

Wayne:

Trev:

Yeah, cocoon was one of those movies that look the two of them and then yeah Spielberg in directing did he

Wayne:

did he was involved in in production was amazing, because

Trev:

he's one of those films that looks like the most Spielberg film ever, but wasn't directed by him.

Wayne:

Yes, it does. Yeah. He's fingerprints on it somewhere. He's

Trev:

got that light glow of Close Encounters on it and everything you should keep moving is he's gonna check that he's

Wayne:

Trev:

think we've covered a lot of 80s nostalgia there from revisit some of them films if you've not seen some of the if we've forgotten any, any of them that really should have stood out and we forget to mention them messages and tell us because everyone's got their favorites from these eras.

Trev:

if Kenny Loggins come out every time and did one last tune? Yeah. For Top Gun to that would be great. Yeah, I still don't care. I love Danger Zone. Danger Zone is great. Yes.
