Death of a Cheerleader 1994

Tori Spelling stars as the headlining cheerleader in the second in our Lifetime True Crime double feature, Death of a Cheerleader, directed by William A Graham. Based on the sad 1984 murder of Kirsten Costas, this Lifetime movie showcases all of Tori Spelling’s raw acting talent, which can only be compared to that of a comatose ferret. Oh, and she’s friends with Wendy Peffercorn. So buckle up, it’s gonna be a rough ride as we attempt to make sense of Tori Spelling’s acting career!

A Killer Among Friends 1992

This week we kick off our Lifetime True Crime double feature with Charles Robert Carner’s A Killer Among Friends. How closely does this dramatization staring Tiffani Amber Thiessen and Patty Duke hew to the true events of the tragic murder of Michele “Missy” Avila, and how effectively do those early 90’s fashions help convey the sense of impending horror? Listen to our movie review today to find out!

Predator 1987

The second in our alien double feature, it’s our review of John McTiernan’s Predator! Why are we reviewing this cult classic? Because some damn fool said this testosterone-fueled d**k-measuring contest was the best. Are they right? Listen to find out!

The Fifth Element 1997

And you thought those Star Wars prequels were bad. It’s time for the second in our Space Jam double feature having nothing to do with either Michael Jordan or Looney Tunes although there is plenty of slapstick comedy in this “sci-fi” adventure from director Luc Besson, The Fifth Element. Join us as we untangle all of the unfunny elements (way more than five) in this misadventure that, while it’s visually alluring, has very little in the way of a satisfying experience. Spoiler alert: The Fifth Element is love, although two of us have very little of it for this film.

Showgirls 1995

It’s time for the second in our stripper double feature, Paul Verhoeven’s Showgirls! And don’t you dare call Nomi a stripper—she’s a dancer goddamnit. One of us is convinced that this movie is better than its reputation as one of the worst films ever made, and one of us thinks its reputation suits it just fine. Is this movie a clever critique of the American dream, or is it just a stupid film starring that woman from Saved By the Bell? I think you know the answer.

Cocktail 1988

Many have heard of it, few have seen it, and fewer still have anything good to say about it. Today we kick off our barroom double feature with Roger Donaldson’s 1988 film Cocktail. How bad is it? Well, if you thought you hated Tom Cruise after that whole couch-jumping thing, wait until you see him reciting poetry while standing on a bar in New York. Yep, it’s that kind of a movie.

Sleepaway Camp 1983

Today we discuss Robert Hiltzik’s 1983 cult classic Sleepaway Camp, the second in our sleepaway camp slasher double feature. 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 twist ending?
