Movies Chat is our new work-in-progress chat show hosted by Movies.com Managing Editor Erik Davis. Each week we'll release multiple episodes that feature 15-20 minute conversations with some of the web's most notable movie experts.
This Friday the good folks at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas officially launch their "Summer of 1982" program, featuring screenings (many of which will be co-hosted by various movie sites, like ours) of a whole ton of awesome films that came out during the summer of 1982. We're talking Rocky III, E.T., Poltergeist, Tron, Conan the Barbarian, The Road Warrior, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and The Thing (Movies.com will be co-hosting this screening on June 22). It was a dope summer, no doubt, but is it the greatest summer of movies ever, as the Alamo Drafthouse claims?
On this episode of Movies Chat, I'm joined by Scott Weinberg (@scotteweinberg), of Movies.com, FearNet and Twitch, to discuss the summer of 1982, as well as our personal favorite summer of movies. You can listen to our chat in the player below, and feel free to email us any questions, comments and concerns to movieschat AT gmail DOT com. Thanks for listening!
