TRN Podcast 011 – Top Ten ’80s Films

Jason and Mickey are back with another week’s worth of retro pop culture on The Retro Network Podcast! In the first segment, Mick professes his love of Mountain Dew as Jason tells a story surrounding his recent “Binder Finder” purchase on eBay. Recurrent Events (@recurrentevents) headlines from the week include:

  • The Movies That Made Us
  • Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi TV Series
  • Crisis on Infinite Earths news and schedule
  • Netflix’s Agent King animated series starring Elvis
  • Replitronics & Coleco Kickstarters
  • Pumpkin Spice Spam
  • Hot Dog Ice Cream Sandwiches
  • Pizza Hut Closings
  • He-Man and the Masters of the Multiverse comic book series

Our main topic discussion this week involves Jason and Mickey revealing their top ten movies of the ’80s as ranked by FlickChart.com as well as their most egregious unseen films. While these ranking are not 100%, the list makes for a fun conversation about some of the greats from the decade. Finally, don’t miss our recap of recent content on TheRetroNetwork.com website.

Keeping with the theme of ’80s movies, listen between segments for a montage of some of the most famous movies lines from the decade. After professing our love of Rocky IV during the podcast, listen for a fun remix made from movie lines and sounds from the movie.
