TRN Podcast 039 – 1988 Movies

Jason and Mickey return to talk movies, specifically the year 1988 as voted on by our listeners. With the coronavirus keeping everyone trapped at home, it’s the perfect time to binge some movies so we’ve got you covered. We’ll also give you some streaming options in our Recurrent Events segment along with:

  • A goodbye to the Gambler, Kenny Rogers
  • Ahsoka Tano cast in The Mandalorian Season 2
  • New Green Hornet comic book series
  • New Star Wars helmet Lego sets
  • Skittles freezer pops

In this week’s TRN Time Machine segment sponsored by the RetroDaze, Jason and Mickey rediscover 1988 in film including top movies at the box office, awards winners (Oscars and Razzies), and our personal Top 5 flicks with a couple honorable mentions. We also will tell you what streaming service currently has each film to save you some time. Plus, several of our listeners chimed in with their favorite ’88 films on Twitter so we’ve got plenty of movies to fill your queues.
