We watched the Oscar-Nominated film Babe in honor of the Year of the Pig. What a surprise this was! For a film that has fallen into almost complete obscurity, this definitely makes it onto our “revisit” list.
Andrew is finally back to watch the next installment of the Harry Potter series. This week, what is widely regarded as one of the best book/movie combos: The Half-Blood Prince. What will Andrew think of this riveting tale with no other background to the series but one viewing of each film? Renee joins us as well.
As if Life Size was not enough Lohan… we watched Lindsay’s debut in 1998’s The Parent Trap. Check out our memories of this show, as well as our review after we rewatch it.
This episode marks the official beginning of our second year of The VCR Kids! We are so glad for everyone that joined us in year one, and can’t wait to rock year two with you!

Thank you to all our Twitter followers who voted for us to watch Richie Rich this week. We revisit Macaulay Culkin in one of his later, pre-pubescent roles as the richest kid in the world. But what money can’t buy? FRIENDSHIP! Or trustworthy employees, or parents who are in touch with reality… Listen to our latest episode and tell your friends about The VCR Kids Podcast!
Of all the kids' movies we’ve done so far, this is probably the cutest. We watched The Little Rascals from 1994 and cracked up along with the gang’s hijinx. If you remember this movie, check out our episode to hear our memories and then our review after rewatching it.
Our first delve into the world of 90’s Jim Carrey does not disappoint! Check out our latest episode on The Cable Guy to hear us talk about this Ben Stiller-directed film that also stars the immortal Matthew Broderick and an amazing cast of supporting characters! We had a lot of fun watching this one. If you like the episode, please tell a friend!
We visit the Stone Age to check in with the Rubbles and the Flintstones this week in the 1994 Historical Fiction. Erin talks about her distrust of feet, Jay laughs at all the rock puns, and Richard's breath is taken away by Halle Barry. Listen, tell your friends, and find us on twitter!
Erin finally convinced us to watch Life-Size starring Tyra Banks and Lindsay Lohan. It was quite an adventure even FINDING this movie, but in the end, we think it was worth it. Never heard of this? Haven't watched it since childhood? Maybe you should check it out. Then again, maybe not.

Time to revisit 90’s Tim Allen: America’s favorite Coke-dealing, Drunk-Driving, Child-Cursing dad! In this Christmas classic, Tim murders good St. Nick and then has to take up his mantle of giving.

Back to the sports movies. Ed O'Neil and Rick Moranis square off in a tale of sibling rivalry. We watched 1994's Little Giants and share our thoughts on the movie both before and after rewatching it as adults. Subscribe for new episodes of The VCR Kids every week, and please rate us five stars and review us if you like the show!
This week we watched the 80’s Classic, The Goonies. Full disclosure, this movie did come out before any of us were born, but it did hold a special place in our formative years. We rewatched it for the first time in a long time and try and decide whether or not it holds up today. Should a Goonies remake be in the works? We’ll let you know on this week’s episode of The VCR Kids!

This one should be called, "Harry Potter and the Normal Haircuts." We show Andrew the 5th installment in the Harry Potter film series and get the reactions of a pair of fresh eyes! If you have ever wanted to force your non-HP-loving friends to sit through hours and hours of Harry Potter, this is the podcast for you!
We watched 1977's The Rescuers. No, not the Australia one, the creepy kidnapping one. It was definitely an adventure... Take a listen!

Holy Voodoo, Batman! We break tradition to bring you fine folks the FIRST R Rated movie we’ve ever done! It’s Halloween time, so let’s talk about watching scary movies at WAY TOO YOUNG an age! Maybe watching Child’s Play so young made a permanent impact on Richard’s life, but I’ll let you decide. Happy Halloweeeeeeeeen!
It’s the 25th anniversary of Hocus Pocus. Well, it was this summer… but enjoy ANOTHER halloween where someone pressures you into watching this movie! And you’ll just smile and nod and pretend you are enjoying it. Meanwhile, in your heart of hearts, you wonder, is this real life?
Anyway… enjoy our Halloween Special where we watched Hocus Pocus!
Listen to this episode, or you're going in the grinder! That's right, we're all dudes over here. We watched the 1990's classic Nickelodeon Film, Good Burger with comedian Evan Pittfield and had a great time. Make sure you stick around to hear the story of Dennis, our pizza delivery guy!
