In the summer of 1962, a group of friends play baseball, learn how to steal a kiss from a lifeguard, and do battle with a dog that is definitely not neutered.

Join us as we talk about Martin Scorsese's move to Netflix, the definitive version of America the Beautiful, and the missed opportunity with James Earl Jones' second-most famous character in a baseball movie. In the end, we ask if The Sandlot stands the Test of Time.

Steven Spielberg takes on a classic children's tale, with Robin Williams as an adult Peter Pan returning to Neverland in 1991's Hook.

This week, we discuss how we did predicting the changes in the Beauty and the Beast live-action remake, who collects royalties off of Peter Pan stories, and what the trailer for Hook 2 might have looked like.

Plus we interview one of Hook's Lost Boys, actor and director Thomas Tulak, who tells us about working with Robin Williams, filming the infamous food fight scene, and his potential role in the upcoming Hook prequel, Bangarang.

The Lost Boys themselves never age, but does Hook stand the Test of Time?

It’s a tale as old as time… a prince is transformed into a hideous beast, and the only thing that can break the curse is true love.

This week, we're asking—and answering—the big questions:
  • What are the best Disney songs ever?
  • Why is a young prince cursed for refusing to allow a witch into his home?
  • Are the dishes and candlesticks in the castle having sex?
  • Is every last inch of Gaston actually covered with hair?
  • Why didn't Belle ever bother to find out the Beast's real name?
Be our guest as we see if Beauty and the Beast stands the Test of Time.

A lounge singer witnesses a murder, joins witness protection, and breathes new life into a church choir in the 1992 comedy, Sister Act.
 
This week, we're talking about EGOTs, how you pronounce "reprise," and the young actress with the unfortunate name who was typecast playing a young Whoopi Goldberg. Plus James makes some shocking personal revelations about his favorite animated show, his dreams of being an expert at jump rope, and his history with Playboy magazine (or lack thereof). All that, plus we find out if Sister Act stands the Test of Time.

Put on your Power Glove and find that warp whistle: we're talking about 1989's love letter to Nintendo, The Wizard.

This flick features Fred Savage putting the moves on a pre-Rilo Kiley Jenny Lewis, the meanest video game villain this side of The King of Kong's Billy Mitchell, and the debut of the greatest video game ever, Super Mario Bros. 3. (Sorry, Ocarina of Time!) This movie may be the gold standard of product placement, but does it stand the Test of Time?
