Director Wes Craven brought fresh blood to the teen slasher genre in his 1996 movie, Scream.
 
In our annual Halloween episode, we discuss modern meta moments, the old-fashioned name for cell phones, and how this film has twists in the opening *and* closing scenes. (Take that, M. Night Shyamalan!) You may know how to survive a horror movie, but do you know if Scream stands the Test of Time?

Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks play mismatched detectives tracking down a cult/crime syndicate in the 1987 flick, Dragnet.
 
This movie has a nefarious plot that hinges on a personal check, a bad guy with a great name, and a scene of Ramsay Bolton-esque torture that's played for laughs. But does this 1980's movie based on a 1950's TV show stand the Test of Time?

Teens 'n parties. Music 'n dancing. Kid 'n Play. They all come together in the 1990 movie, House Party.
 
We are once again joined by Brat Pack America author Kevin Smokler as we talk about old school Kool Aid, the only man who can crack up Ice Cube, and what House Party has in common with Bridesmaids, Dirty Work, and Frankie and Annette beach movies. Plus we share our thoughts on Ready Player One and the 80's nostalgia craze (something we happen to know a little bit about) before we see if House Party stands the Test of Time.

Thirty five years after Blade Runner first hit theaters, its long-awaited sequel has finally arrived.
 
In our conversation about the original film, we question why robot slaves need fake memories of fake families, how the movie correctly predicted drones but mistakenly thought Pan Am would still be a thing, and why there's no simple way to identify a replicant through, like, a blood test or something. When all is said and done, we find out if 1982's Blade Runner stands the Test of Time.
