Centuries-old immortals battle and behead each other to win the ultimate prize in 1986's Highlander.
 
Join us as we discuss the MacLeod clan's poor military strategy, the women who would have made kickass immortals (#feminism), and the worst Queen karaoke song ever. And, of course, we wonder why the Scottish actor with a Scottish accent in a movie set in Scotland plays a character who's... Spanish/Egyptian?
 
There can be only one, but does Highlander stand the Test of Time?

A young woman dreams of escaping her wicked stepmother and finding her prince in the animated Disney classic, Cinderella.
 
Listen to find out what the movie's singing mice have in common with Ozzy Osbourne, what glass slippers have in common with a dress made of asbestos, and what James has in common with Prince Charming. We also talk about Star Wars Episode IX's director drama before finding out if 1950's Cinderella stands the Test of Time.

Three friends travel for two weeks to find the one thing that life is all about in 1991's City Slickers.  
 
This week, we talk about the midlife crisis movie genre (its a thing!), Bruno Kirby's awesome/awful mustache, and what you should never do when delivering a calf by hand. Plus hear how Alan factors into the best *and* worst days of James' life as we find out if City Slickers stands the Test of Time.

They're the galaxy defenders who won't let you remember. They are... the Men in Black.

As we chat about the 1997 blockbuster, we question how an organization whose agents are named with a single letter can have more than 26 members. We wonder about the poor woman who Agent K left behind. And we question the logic of a bug-loving alien who wants to destroy a planet filled with bugs. By the end of this episode, you will know if Men in Black stands the Test of Time (though we can't promise no one will come along and erase your memories.)
