Seemingly every generation has their lineup of cheesy, schlock-y action movies. The hosts of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, are children and teens of the 1980s and 1990s. Action movies were never better, and it was a hell of a time to be alive. The best part is legitimate filmmakers like Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, and more brought true craftsmanship and scope to what used to be belittled B-movies. While he’s not on the Spielbergian level of greatness, there was a time Roland Emmerich was one of those kings.

For their 105th episode, two buzz cut film critics, two non-scientific dads, and two hieroglyphic-loving teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan welcome back guest Mark Krawczyk for a second episode. This time, the founder and content creator of Special Mark Productions brings a science fiction cult classic to the argument table. The three gentlemen share though well-spread thoughts on 1994’s Stargate. Shake the sand out of your boots and give it a listen. Come for the shared challenge and tirade and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Enjoy our podcast!
