So, What's the Problem? Bugsy Malone (1976)

 It's Jimmy's birthday and to celebrate, he gets to pick a move from the year of his birth that he watched as a kid. So, Bugsy Malone it is. It's a gangster movie where all the characters are played by kids and instead of guns with bullets, cream is a deadly weapon. And they have pedal cars! But does having kids play parts that are usually portrayed by adults, problematic? Listen to find out! Contains mild language. 

This kid grew up to direct the Elton John biopic, Rocketman...

Drop the Pilot- Back to Norm (2005)

 

Drop the whaaaaat? Yeah, that's right, we are back. Tysto and Jimmy pay tribute Norm MacDonald and what better way to do that than to crap on a failed pilot of his? They discuss each sketch as well as humour which leads to talk of British panel shows and both hosts seem to have a different definition of what makes someone "camp". Contains strong language and talk of suicide, as that is in the show in question.

So, What's the Problem? She's All That (1999)

 We're back and so are romantic comedies and the pinnacle of the genre from the 90s... Oh, wait, this isn't 10 Things I Hate About You, that movie's so good. Anyway, there's this, instead. We talk about the cast and its weak link, unnecessary scenes and just how good 10 Things I Hate About You is. It's so good, you guys.  Contains strong language and stay tuned at the end for what we're doing next week. 


Matthew, love you dude but...no...

So, What's the Problem? Starchaser: The Legend of Orin (1985)

Ooh, boy, it's one of those "how is this for kids?" movies and despite there being a lot we could talk about, this is a short episode. It's an odd one. As this is late, we shall no longer be having theme months but will have seasons instead. We explain more on the episode. Contains strong language. 

You know... for kids!

So, What's the Problem? The Care Bears Movie (1985)

Oh, dear. Jen and the podcast's very own Grumpy Bear, Jimmy, discuss this favourite from the former's childhood. And the latter just isn't having any of it. They talk about the cast, fawn over one in particular, Jen talks about the artist behind some of the bears and disbelieves Jimmy about the existence of a show from his past. Oh and Jimmy accuses the Care Bears of being stalkers, enjoy! Contains strong language. 


This movie could have been written today...and then just ended here...

So, What's the Problem? The Adventures of Mark Twain (1985)

 Episode two of Animated Month sees the very first (and probably only) Claymation movie to be covered on the show. It's a short one this week because... well, you'll see. Contains one use of strong language as Jimmy could just about restrain himself. For info on what is next in Animation month, listen to the end. 

This is nightmare fuel but so damn good...

Jimmy and Martin Talk Doctor Who

 

As a special bonus episode born out of busyness, Jimmy and Martin have an off-the-cuff, unedited chat about the future of Doctor Who given the news of the upcoming departure of Jodie Whittaker and showrunner Chris Chibnall. This came out of a recording of Fringe Division and Jimmy is going to be out of town, so couldn't edit an episode on time, so we're releasing this. Contains strong language and strong opinions.

So, What's the Problem? Delirious (1991)


It's Jimmy's pick and it's one he used to watch on VHS a lot. Is it any good? Did Jen watch it for the first time or had she seen it and forgot? Like she had forgotten a certain movie we have covered on the podcast already? Tangents include spoiler-free talk about the movie Freaky.  In two weeks, it's the start of Animated Movie Month on So, What's the Problem? Find out what is first at the end of this episode. Exciting! Contains strong language. 

Bad taste, sure, but that reaction is fucking great...

So, What's the Problem? Return to Oz (1985)

 An 80s movie not picked by Jimmy? I mean... what???? This curio from Disney often gets misidentified as a sequel to The Wizard of Oz (1939) but it's actually an adaptation of a couple of the books that were sequels to the novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900). Got that? Good. This week, Jimmy struggles with his feelings about the movie and Jen faces a childhood trauma. Contains strong language. 

Holy shit, Disney!
