    The Pope of Greenwich Village

    19 JUN 2024 · This week on the Exciting & New podcast, Jason, Andy and Dana are joined for the first time, but hopefully not the last time, by Andy's oldest, Daniel.  He felt it was about time he got off the couch and got into the hot seat as we discuss the 1984 crime, mob-adjacent drama, The Pope of Greenwich Village.  Mickey Rourke, still young and in all his hottness, is led astray by his dim-witted cousin Eric Roberts as they rip off a local mob boss and have to pay the price.  The price?   THEY TOOK MY THUMB, CHARLIE!!   Eric Robert's acting is over the top in the movie.  Almost to the point that this movie becomes a comedy.  Is it supposed to be funny?  We all laughed.  Anyway, this was an interesting movie to initiate Daniel on and we hope we didnt frighten him off.  Enjoy the pod.

    Beverly Hills Cop

    12 JUN 2024 · This week on the Exciting & New podcast, Jason, Andy and Dana welcome Connor back on to the show as we discuss the 1984 Eddie Murphy-starring vehicle, Beverly Hills Cop.  With a new Netflix movie dropping soon we felt it was time to jump on the bandwagon and grab some clicks by people who mistook this for the new movie.  I feel like this is happening a lot these days (see our Dune and Ghostbusters podcasts).  Anyway, Detroit cop Axel Foley comes to Beverly Hills to investigate his friend's murder and there are tons of laughs along the way (as there would be after your friend is shot in front of you).  This is Eddie’s first solo starring movie, and he is at his peak.  There are a couple brief glimpses of some other up and coming comedians as well.   Plus, a Close Talker and a 80's Villian mainstay.  Oh, and a woman gets a few speaking lines in this one as well.  How progressive?  Enjoy the movie and enjoy the podcast.

    The Terminator

    5 JUN 2024 · This week on the Exciting & New podcast, Jason, Andy and Dana welcome Bryan back on the show, and he brought his spawn Riley along, as we enjoy a double Mac attack and dive headfirst into the 1984 AH-NOLD sci-fi horror extravaganza, The Terminator.   This is the movie that turned Arnold into a star and brought us the line we still quote to this day, “Fuck you, asshole”.  Or was it “I’ll be back”?  Well, it was one of those quotes.  We were all super excited to discuss this movie and it was great to hear from the younger generation as Riley gives us his 2 cents regarding this classic.  Except for a few wonky special effects shots, this movie holds up like a champ.  You know Arnold and Linda will be back for the amazing sequel.  And then will keep coming back for crappier sequels (woof).    We suggest you watch this movie and Part 2 (Judgement Day) and then listen to the podcast.  And never watch another Terminator movie.  Enjoy the pod!

    Revenge of the Nerds

    29 MAY 2024 · This week on the Exciting & New podcast, Jason, Andy and Dana welcome Dan back on the show as we discuss the 1984 comedy Revenge of the Nerds.  A bunch of misfits come to college, where apparently, the local high school football team is masquerading as college students.  Honestly, have you ever met an adult who acts like this?   Setting their house on fire?  Sure.  Destroying property that doesn’t belong to them?  Of course.  Carelessly spilling and spitting out beer?   Unforgiveable.  This movie lost me at this point.  But don't you worry.  Our Nerds are going to use Brains over Brawn and give these jocks their comeup'ens.  There are some future stars hiding among the cast, as we finally get the answer to the age-old question, “What the fuck are robster craws?”  This is an all-time classic movie, and we had a great time discussing it.  Enjoy the podcast.

    Repo Man

    22 MAY 2024 · This week on the Exciting & New podcast, Jason, Andy and Dana welcome Mike back on the podcast as we discuss the 1984 punk-infused sci-fi, dark comedy Repo Man.   Emilio Estevez stars in his first lead movie as a street punk who is recruited by Harry Dean Stanton into the glamourous world of repossessing cars.  This movie is all over the map.  Aliens are involved.  Street gangs are involved.  People-melting car trucks are involved.  The Circle Jerks are involved.  In the end, when it came time to give the scores, there might never have been a wider range of scores given on this podcast.  Some of us would say watch the movie before listening to the podcast.  Some would say skip the movie but listen to the podcast.  What we can all agree on is that you should listen to the podcast.  Enjoy.

Jason, Andy and Dana will discuss a 1984 movie weekly, breaking down all the nonsense there within. The 3 hosts all work together and everyone else around them was getting really annoyed at all the movie talk, so they decided to annoy the world in podcast form.

Check out previous seasons to hear them discuss 1982 and 1983 movies as well as a full season of Love Boat episodes (if that is your thing). Plus one-off specials and a weekly mini "what are we watching" podcast.
