Release Date Rewind : Sixteen Candles (40th) & Election (25th)


It's an angsty teen double feature about girls on a mission to get what they want! Mark welcomes Valerie Cherish expert Devin Lotfi from the I Don't Want to Hear That! podcast on a journey back to high school in the '80s and '90s to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Sixteen Candles and the 25th anniversary of Election. And what a perfect combo since both feature strong women who scare men, plus this is an election year, and Mark and Devin are both only 16 years old (ha!). From the movie debuts of studs Michael Schoeffling and Chris Klein, to the problematic John Hughes dialogue that hasn't aged well, to that bee sting on Matthew Broderick's eyelid, you need to Pick Flick and press play. Plus, Drop Dead Gorgeous gets a shout-out!
Release Date Rewind
Movie nerd, filmmaker, and anniversary celebrator Mark J. Parker brings a friend on each episode to discuss movies (and sometimes TV shows and music) that are hitting milestone anniversaries of release that month. Think 20th anniversary, 25th, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th, 75th, you get it! They'll dive in together, discussing fun facts, memorable moments, and what makes these movies worth a rewind all these years later. Let's get nostalgic! The podcast logo is created by Greg Clements. The theme song is the instrumental version of "Dance This Out" by singer/songwriter Kyle Motsinger and producer Smoke and Mirrors.
