This week Join Roger, Dick and their new friend Gene for a stroll down the Santa Carla beach boardwalk; as they review and rewind the 1987 classic The Lost Boys.

Much like Tim Cappella playing his saxophone interpretation of “I Still Believe” they are each shirtless, muscular, oiled up, and ready to grind their hips for you the listeners.

So let’s all slide on our skin- tight purple pants, leather jackets, while we go find the nearest bridge to hang from… Because it’s time to feed.

This week Dick & Roger turn Investigative journalists to blow the lid off the lies behind Paramount Pictures decade’s long cover-up of the Zamundian royal family and their atrocities. The films plot revolves around the discontented Prince Akeem, who is tired of his pampered life and concocts a plan to travel to America with his servant Semmi to find a bide of his choosing. While purporting to focus on the courtship the Prince to the American commoner Lisa McDowell, the film actually turned out to be nothing but pure propaganda.

For over 28 years we have been methodically deceived into believing that King Jaffe Joffer was a benevolent ruler and loving father, but was he? How could a ruler whom accessorize his wardrobe with the carcasses of exotic animals and proudly proclaims to have tied his own shoes once, called it “an overrated experience” be anything but ruthless. The King in fact rules the throne with unquestioned power, and expects complete obedience even when choosing a bride for his son, whom has been trained to mindlessly obey the princes every command.

Whether his vast fortune was built from conflict diamonds, worker exploitation, or environmental degradation it’s obvious the people of Zamunda are subject to unspeakable human suffering. So please join us on the sofa while we fire up the old VCS for a reveling expose on the corruption of wealth and power in Coming to America.

Marty McFly, a typical American teenager of the Eighties, is accidentally sent back to his hometown of Hill Valley in 1955… Wait same town, wrong movie.

A horde of miniature green monsters tear through the small town of Kingston Falls after a mild-mannered bank teller Billy unwittingly unleashes the destructive powers of his new exotic pet. His failure to follow his pet’s three simple rules: No water (but beer is ok), no food after midnight, and no bright light lead to countless deaths and undoubtedly years of legal battles for the Peltzer family.

So, when your washing machine blows up or your TV goes on the fritz, before you call the repair man, turn on all the lights and look under all the beds. ‘Cause you never can tell, there just might be a gremlin in your house, or it just might be Billy Peltzer sabotaging your entire life.

When it comes to 1990’s chick flicks, Julia Roberts is practically the living embodiment of the rom-com genre. From Steel Magnolias and Nottinghill to Runaway Bride, her body of work is almost universally loved by women, and tolerated by the men in their lives. Yet there is one film in the pantheon of Roberts’ repertoire which all men do secretly love: Pretty Woman. So this week we dive into the 4$ bin and pullout the supposedly modern day version of Cinderella. The story of a woman, Vivian (Julia Roberts) forced into the underground world of prostitution as a way to survive in Los Angeles. She becomes a week long “companion” for an extremely wealthy business man, Edward (Richard Gere). Sadly after spending a week in Beverly Hills luxury and living the life she’d always dreamed of…. she’s forced to return to her sad existence and again sell her body for money. Ok.. that’s not how the movie ends, but we all know it should have.

We fired up the old VCR again this week for the classic Weird Science: The tale of two horny friends Gary and Wyatt who are tired of being social outcasts and not getting any action. With Wyatt’s parents gone for the weekend, the two perverts try to create the world’s first real doll. Using only Wyatt’s computer, random photos from their wish boards and a Barbie doll the duo give birth to their “perfect woman” with the limitless powers of a genie. Hilarity ensures including group showers, new interracial friendships, random bikers, dated sport cars and a magical sucking chimney. So let’s all kick back with a glass of scotch and remember the time when it was ok to use magic to get laid.
