The Williams Sisters: Two Middle Fingers to Men’s Tennis

How can I begin to describe for you my love for all things Venus and Serena Williams? It’s not a creepy thing … Okay, it’s slightly creepy, but I cannot help that I’m attracted to beautiful, athletic women. And so when I hear others insulting the Williams sisters or denigrating their talent by claiming that they do not deserve as much prize money as men for their tournament wins, I get a little upset.

Thrashin’ 1986

Thrashin’ is a skateboard movie from 1986 starring Josh Brolin as an unlikeable kid from the San Fernando valley who spends his summer in LA facing off against Tommy Hook and his “gang” the Daggers. Directed by David Winters, this movie also features pre-Twin Peaks Sherilyn Fenn as well as one other pre-Twin Peaks character! There’s also a live performance by a young Red Hot Chili Peppers, skateboard stunts by the likes of Tony Alva and Tony Hawk, and one great chase scene set to the music of the Circle Jerks. Unofortunately, all of these cool elements are offset by that painfully stupid skateboard jousting fight. Whatever, it’s free to watch on YouTube.

Sleepaway Camp 1983

Today we discuss Robert Hiltzik’s 1983 cult classic Sleepaway Camp. Why is everyone willing to pretend like that cook isn’t a pedeophile? What is up with Meg and Mel’s relationship? What is the familial relationship between Angela and Peter’s dad and Aunt Martha? Is that a fake moustache, and how great is that ending?

North Shore 1987

Today we review 1987’s North Shore, including Rick Kane’s wave pool trophy, Laird Hamilton’s dancing, and Turtle’s pidgin English. We also discuss Nia Peeples, probably referring to her more than once as ‘Mia,’ and debate why she would let Rick ride on the front of her horse.

North Shore Trailer

Today we discuss the trailer to William Phelps’s 1987 North Shore, a movie about a competitive surfer from Arizona who heads to the north shore of Oahu to surf. Trouble no doubt ensues, not least because this movie stars no one you’ve probably heard of, except Laird Hamilton, who isn’t really an actor but a big wave surfer. Nia Peeples is cool, though, even if she isn’t related to Mario Van Peebles, who spells his last name differently, which may account for the lack of relation on their part. Anyway, today we discuss the trailer, and next week we review the full movie!

Listen now to hear the trailer and our thoughts, and of course, you can check out North Shore on Amazon and YouTube!
