Scream featured a boat-load of 90’s it-actors and made a mark on Pop Culture. But does the 1996 movie still hold up 23 years later? Listen to the latest episode of The VCR Kids to hear what we think.
The VCR Kids' Spooktober continues with the movie that took the 90's by surprise: The Sixth Sense. What was it like when the country still had faith in M. Night Shyamalan? We try and recapture that feeling.

We had a hard time getting together this week for our episode, so we dug into our archive of unreleased episodes!

We watched Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course. Is it still worth watching in 2019? Let us know your favorite memories of Steve Irwin.
Osmosis Jones stars a LOT of funny people completely phoning it in on a terrible script. Or at least, that’s our general take of a movie that had a lot of hype when we were kids. Let us know your thoughts, and whether or not it’s worth seeing again.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Laura Dern star in October Sky, a period movie about a group of boys who want to follow their dreams and build rockets. Based on a true story, this was what Erin describes as a “Youth Group Movie”. We figured it was time to revisit this coming-of-age film and see if it still holds up!
We watched The Lion King (1994) and The Lion King (2019) to see how the remake holds up to the original. With a stellar voice cast, and a tragic history of previous Disney remakes, The Lion King has a lot of hype to live up to, while still having the opportunity to crush expectations. We watched both, and we’ll let you know which is better, and whether you should watch Disney’s Lion King remake.
In our third installment of "Grown-Up Summer" we watched That Thing You Do! One of Jay's favorite movies growing up. Does this feel-good classic hold up in 2019?

Mel Gibson stars in this 2000 claymation send-up of The Great Escape. Can Ginger and the chickens escape Tweedy’s Farm before they get turned into pies? They don’t even like gravy! We watched Chicken Run 19 years after it came out to see if it stands the test of time. Listen to the latest episode of The VCR Kids now!
This week, The VCR Kids dig into our Nostalgia Briefcase and pull out Stuart Little. Did you know this movie was written by M. Night Shamalyan? And it came out the SAME YEAR as The Sixth Sense? Coincidence? We'll see..
Stuart Little stars Michael J. Fox, Hugh Laurie, Gena Davis, Nathan Lane, and way more people you know! It also got a few Oscar nods. Overall, we were pretty surprised by how little we remembered about this movie. Definitely worth the time to check it out if you saw it as a kid.
Hit us up on Twitter and tell us your thoughts about Stuart Little!
From the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline, we watched 1996’s James and the Giant Peach. To say this is an entomologist’s fever dream is an understatement.
