The Crow, Flatliners, Jurassic Park, Diggstown, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Fisher King, Nightbreed, Hal Hartley's Trust, The Usual Suspects, The Prophecy... What do all these movies possibly have to do with each other? They were made in the nineties, my friends. The age of the overcoat and the flannel shirt.

Were there ever any good movies made from video games? Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Mario Brothers, Doom, Dungeon Siege, Double Dragon, Alone in the Dark, Bloodrayne, Silent Hill, Resident Evil... hmm, guess not. Do Tron and the Last Starfighter count?

What are the great cartoons of your childhood? Did you watch Dungeons & Dragons or Super Friends (or the Super Powers show)? Remember Hanna Barbera classics like Thundarr the Barbarian and the Herculoids before Adult Swim caught hold of them? Of were you a robot man? Did you follow Voltron and the Mighty Orbots? Were you a Transformers man or did you favor the Gobots instead? Remember the Batman Animated Series and the awesomeness of the Tick? Everyone watched He-Man and GI Joe, but do you remember Plastic Man and the original Space Ghost? Remember the Real Ghostbusters and the original Ghostbusters (with the gorilla in it)? How about Galaxy High, Teen Wolf and Turbo Teen? The boys talk about these and all the toys that went with them (whatever happened to the Shogun Warriors anyway?), and somewhere in this still have time to discuss cinematic gems like Star Crash and Space Mutiny (the one that used the special FX from the original Battlestar Galactica TV show); we even talk about the Captain America TV movies a little. This show's got it all, folks...
