Just click the slider below and you’ll be transported back in time, a time when Madonna ruled the airwaves, Stephen King ruled the bookshelves and Axel Foley ruled the box office. We’re taking you back to the decade of big hair, big shoulders and big, memorable movies (and you don’t even need a DeLorean!). So sit back, grab a snack and prepare to have your minds blown as
With your hosts Scott Davis, Austin Kennedy and Jesse Hoheisel
On this week’s show:
WITNESS — New York Detective John Book (Harrison Ford) travels to Pennsylvania Dutch country to protect a young Amish boy (Lukas Haas) from the crooked police officers who want the boy dead after he witnesses a murder. Kelly McGillis co-stars as the boy’s mother.
Director: Peter Weir. Starring: Harrison Ford, Kelly McGillis.
Rated R. 112 minutes. Watch trailer.
MISCHIEF — A shy, small-town teenager (Doug McKeon) enlists the assistance of the new guy in town to help improve his social status and get the girl of his dreams (and since she is played by Kelly Preston, many of us can relate). Although the film is set in the same decade as “Porky’s,” this is a much milder, sweeter take on teen shenanigans.
Director: Mel Damski. Starring: Doug McKeon, Chris Nash.
Rated R. 93 minutes. Watch trailer.
HEAVEN HELP US — Set in a brutal all-boys prep school in 1965 Brooklyn, the film follows the exploits of a new recruit (Andrew McCarthy) as he struggles to fit in, falls in love with Mary Stuart Masterson and plans his future with the help of an elder played by John Heard.
Director: Michael Dinner. Starring: Andrew McCarthy, John Heard.
Rated R. 104 minutes. Watch trailer.
