Do you ever look back on the movies you watched as a kid and think, "How was THAT appropriate for my childhood?" Maybe these disturbing children's shows and movies have contributed to our childhood trauma. Or maybe we are more disturbed by them as adults than we ever noticed as kids because we were so into the action.
FTN contributors Jeff McGee, Darth Taxus, and Regina Davis join Scott to discuss these movies and shows. The group examines some scary, dark, and disturbing themes and how they might not have truly been appropriate for children.
The discussion includes Cloak & Dagger, The Goonies, The Wizard of Oz, The NeverEnding Story, the Muppet movies and more.
Jeff and Regina are co-hosts on a podcast called The Pilot Episode where they watch and review the first episode of different TV shows.
Jeff also co-hosts Star Wars Splash Page where he and Matt Moore discuss that week’s Star Wars Comics. Both podcasts can be found on Marvin Dog Media.
Regina also co-hosts Comic Book Noob with Scott Murray and Matt Moore.
Darth Taxus is currently playing country and western music with Gene Tobin around Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.
FTN contributor and 80s author/speaker Chris Clews takes over the show to challenge Scott, Darth Taxus and Matt More with some 80s-themed questions, including:
Thanos snaps his fingers and takes out all but one of Corey Feldman's movies. Which one do you save?
What recent movie would fit perfectly into the 80s movie library?
If you could go back in infuse modern CGI/effects into an 80s movie, which would it be?
Find out how Beastmaster, ZZ Top, Weird Al, Thanos, Colonel Sanders, Robocop, Atari, Mission Impossible, leg warmers and vampires made it into the answers.
