A boy dreams of leaving his trailer park, only to end up in outer space defending the galaxy in the 1984 movie The Last Starfighter.
The movie features an alien race with Mr. Burns haircuts, the most reluctant hero ever, and plenty of "homages" to another popular film franchise (hint: it rhymes with Bar Doors.)

Join us for an episode that features tangents about The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, Passenger 57, and the entire theme song from Blossom (it makes sense in context, honest.) When all is said and done, we find out if The Last Starfighter stands the Test of Time.

Rodney Dangerfield is the big (and old) man on campus in the 1986 college comedy, Back to School.

In this episode, we talk about the 2016 Ghostbusters (which is now subtitled "Answer the Call" for some reason), the oeuvre of William Zabka, and how hard academia can be for dead monkeys. Our final grade hinges on one question: does Back to School stand the Test of Time?

The Chicago Cubs may have won the 2016 World Series, but the Cleveland Indians will always have the 1989 flick Major League.

Listen as we touch on the Presidential election, the Nintendo Switch, and the day Alan's social life died. Plus we analyze Cleveland lofts, the movie's most cringe-worthy line, and the character who looks like a grown up Bobby Hill, all as we ask: does Major League stand the Test of Time?

In Flight of the Navigator, a young boy passes out in 1978, wakes up in 1986, then has to travel through space and time to get back home.
 
This week's conversation includes talk about Star Wars Rebels, Twisted Sister, and cursing in Disney movies. Plus, we expose the fact that Christopher Nolan basically just ripped off this flick when he made Interstellar. In the end, we ask if Flight of the Navigator stands the Test of Time.
