Wooden stakes, holy water, and garlic. These three weapons, two Coreys, and one old fart of a grandfather go head to head against the vampires of Santa Carla in 1987’s The Lost Boys.
 
In this episode, we debate which is cooler, zombies or vampires. We learn about the former child actor who is a proud fast food franchisee. And we ponder what the hell was the deal with that heavy metal sax player. Alison Brie, mullets, and Super Soakers also factor into the conversation as we find out if The Lost Boys stands the Test of Time.

A disgruntled cabbie, a zany radio host, and the perfect woman team up to stop the ultimate evil in 1997's The Fifth Element.
 
In a wide-ranging conversation, we touch on the movie's connections to Minority Report, Attack of the Clones, and 2001: A Space Odyssey. Plus we talk about Master of None, the African country Mauritania, and we reveal everything we know about fashion (it doesn't take long). Only then do we determine if The Fifth Element stands the Test of Time.

Part man. Part machine. All cop. Those six words give you a pretty good idea of what to expect from 1987's futuristic action flick, RoboCop.

Push play to hear what RoboCop has in common with Jesus, R2-D2, and Batman. Plus we share our thoughts on Wonder Woman and Cars 3, and explain how Rotten Tomatoes works before deciding if RoboCop stands the Test of Time.

Tobey Maguire stars as your friendly neighborhood web-slinger in Sam Raimi’s 2002 blockbuster, Spider-Man.

Fifteen years after the movie's release, we discuss the physics of kissing upside-down, what Green Goblin has in common with Wile E. Coyote, and how Peter Parker gets in one little fight and his uncle gives him the whole "great power/great responsibility" speech. When all is said and done, we ask if 2002's Spider-Man stands the Test of Time.
