Dalton is Bond, but no longer 007 when his License to Kill is revoked! When a drug lord goes after Bond's friend, the spy will stop at nothing for revenge. It's a Bond for the 80's, but does it hold up in the 21st century? Listen to Brock, Arnie, and Stuart's review to find out!

With Roger Moore retiring as James Bond the mantle was passed to British actor Timothy Dalton. Portraying a more modern version of 007, Dalton's Bond had a harder edge and a more action movie feel. Is The Living Daylights the living end for Arnie, Stuart, and Brock? Listen to their review to find out!

Anthology and horror have a long history together in comics, television, and film, with a heyday in the 80s with such films as The Twilight Zone, Nightmares, Cat's Eye, and the Creepshow films. But in 2007, Michael Dougherty made the most high profile horror anthology in over a decade with Trick 'R' Treat. Starring Sam, a character from Dougherty's animated short, as the sprit of Halloween, this film has plenty of recognizable stars and a high profile producer, but was unable to secure a wide theatrical release and ended up becoming a cult hit on home video. Now, due to listener demand, Arnie, Stuart, and Brock give their review of this underground favorite. Did they find it a treat? Listen to find out!

In 1985 Roger Moore set two records--at 57 years old he was the oldest actor to portray James Bond, and with A View to a Kill his seventh Bond film he played Bond in the official films more times than any other actor to date. A View to a Kill would be his last film as James Bond, but with Christopher Walken as villian Max Zorin, Grace Jones as Zorin's goon May Day, and a rocking theme by 80's rockers Duran Duran, is Moore's last Bond film worth a view, or a kill? Listen to find out!

You Only Live Twice declared "Sean Connery IS James Bond"...and then Connery quit and Roger Moore was James Bond. But due to legal wrangling a competing James Bond film was released in 1983 and once more Sean Connery WAS James Bond. Is this the long awaited return of the true James Bond, or a desperate cash grab? Listen to find out!

Joss Whedon may have directed the biggest movie of 2012, but it wasn't the only film he released this year. Before Avengers, another Whedon co-written and produced film, Cabin in the Woods, was released and polarized both Whedonites and horror fans. This genre-bending tale of five friends who try to go off the grid but find themselves terrorized by inbred hillbilly zombies seems rote, but who are the puppet masters pulling the strings and for what purpose? Well Now Playing puppet masters overwhelmingly voted for a review of Cabin in the Woods in our one-off horror review poll, so listen to find out why!

After For Your Eyes Only many people thought Roger Moore's Bond was at an All Time High, and with the impending revival of Sean Connery as a competing James Bond Eon was sure to bring back Moore as their golden gun for another adventure. This time Bond must team up with a group of smugglers to stop a crazed Russian general from taking over the world. Does Bond's clowning around work for Arnie, Stuart, and Brock? Listen to find out!
