Myopia: Defending Your Childhood We watch the movies you grew up with, you know the ones. The ones that you were so close to, that you no longer even see the problems with them when you look closely. Do they hold up? Can you defend your childhood? Every week on Myopia: Defend Your Childhood, we put another little piece of your past on trial. Did you binge on pizza watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Cowabunga!)? Watch animated classics like The Land Before Time in your pajamas, or sing along to A Goofy Movie? Was Space Jam your jam? Were you hooked on the brothers (Super Mario Brothers, that is)? We’ll watch it and give you the verdict.

Myopia: Defend Your Childhood - A Nostalgic Movies Podcast We watch the movies you grew up with. Do they hold up? How will you stand when we put your past on trial?

  • Wild Wild West
    by Dudeletter on August 29, 2019 at 2:10 pm

    Welcome to our 200th movie! Along the way there have been repeats and side quests, but 200 different films have graced our screens and we have settled on the oft requested and much maligned Wild Wild West! One would think the star and director of Men In Black would put together a better movie, but they would be much mistaken. Does it have a mechanical spider that is the subject of Kevin Smith's best story? Sure does! Do you see Will Smith's nakedness (yep, from behind after having sex in the town's water supply). Is it stunningly racist? Hoooooo-boy is it ever! Fun? Nope, not a bit! Here's to 200 more! The poll for our next month is closed! We are hunting humans for sport in September! Stay tuned for more polls in the future! In October we are doing a heavy hitters month of slasher films. We have chosen Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees, but you will chose the third, watch for the poll! A quick thanks also for those of you who came to see me perform Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus with Cineprov. Next month on September 5th, we are riffing Robot Holocaust!

  • The Dark Crystal
    by Dudeletter on August 15, 2019 at 8:05 pm

    We have returned in triumph to talk about the cripplingly boring film, The Dark Crystal! We love Jim Henson, but wow. Anyway, welcome to Season 6! This season we are changing a few things. First, as mentioned at the end of last season, we will be going down to every other week. While this means less episode, it should mean more quality and an opportunity to do more fun episodes and random bonuses. Next, we are still doing theme months, but we are going to let you pick most of the themes! Check Twitter and Facebook for the categories and vote! Finally, thanks for listening in for five seasons, here is to many more! A quick thanks also for those of you who came to see me perform Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus with Cineprov.
