PART ONE: Cross-posted with Voices & Visions as well. You can follow the list from 1989 that we cover linked above. Ladies and gentlemen, let's go back thirty years to when three film critics were first falling in love with movies. The mid-80s informed a lot of our taste, and much like previous years' retrospectives, it's always a blast to go back and see what holds up and what we each consider to be favorites and least favorites from a particular year. Joined once again by Erik Childress and Collin Souter we return for what is officially a yearly tradition that started thanks to original podcast creator Jim Laczkowski. We started with 1985 and plan to do this yearly tradition all the way up until 1999 as a bonus excursion for reflection, nostalgia, and to celebrate those 80s and 90s kids that adored film as much as we did.
We go through the entire year chronologically covering titles that range from FIELD OF DREAMS to DO THE RIGHT THING and everything in between (HEATHERS, BATMAN, THE BURBS, ALWAYS, GLORY, etc). Yes, some big titles come up, but have no fear, we talk LISTEN TO ME and DREAM A LITTLE DREAM too. A show so big, six hours had to split into two parts. At the end of Part Two which is coming soon, we list our favorite films of 1989. Thank you so much for supporting the show and listening to Part One!
Listen To Part Two!
