A discussion of cult films by two guys located in a basement somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Matt holds a B.S. and M.S. in physics, and works as an aerospace engineer. Mark holds a B.S. in biochemistry and works as a research technician... both are graduates of Snohomish High School Class of 91/92 respectiviely, none of which qualifies them to discuss film in any meaningful way... so... "caveat emptor" and all that.

026 Risky Business by Paul Brickman
WTF! This week we review the 1983 classic Risky Business by Paul Brickman, starring pre-Scientology Tom Cruise and the stunning beauty Rebecca De Mornay. With recent news of TomKat's newly announced divorce, we couldn't help but get sidetracked into the Tom Cruise enigma (always entertainment blog-fodder). But despite his couch-jumping strangeness, Cruise is a most excellent actor and delivers up a nuanced and efficient performance as the Princeton-bound Joel Goodson. With near perfect dialogue, Risky Business is an 80's teen movie that sets the bar incredibly high, casting shadows over all future films in the genre. Enjoy!
