Point Break

We're getting a shot of 100% pure adrenaline as we experience Kathryn Bigelow's epic of surfboards and shotguns, Point Break. Listen as we come to a fundamental difference of philosophies regarding this beloved action flick, debate whether Patrick Swayze's zen surf dude is a cult leader or just a scumbag, and bemoan one of cinema's most ridiculous character names. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and a commitment to watch Prayer of the Rollerboys.

Our theme song is "Nostalgia TV" by Edward Jonathan Blakeley through Lynne Publishing.

Ever tried skydiving with firearms but no parachutes? Can you take down two meatball subs? Are you a blue flame special? Leave a comment and keep the conversation going.


  1. Beautiful work, folks. Would have enjoyed some comment on "War Child" and the crazy raid on the trap house, as well as the zany quotes ("Young, dumb and full of ...") but you can't cover everything in a movie like this in a single podcast.

    1. Thank you! After the fact there are always things we forgot to bring up during the recording and I wish we had discussed the raid scene because it is an excellent action scene.

      Ironically we just watched Cyborg not long ago so seeing Vincent Klyn's intimidating performance as Warchild was a fun surprise. And we've definitely been throwing some of the movie's wackier quotes at each other this week. "Blue flame special" has definitely entered our lexicon.

      Thanks for listening!!
