It's time to let off some steam, and enjoy some 'macho bullshit', as we tackle 1985's action romp, Commando!

It's one of Morgan's favourite films, and Tom's only seen it once (years ago, because Morgan made him). But how does it hold up nearly 40 years later?

We discuss the making of the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic, as well as its impressive cast, bonkers plot and talks of a sequel.

We also drunkenly chat about:

  • The one-off villain that was Bennett and all his fabulous-ness
  • Why it's the perfect pre-wedding film
  • How it stole a line from James Bond
  • Did Bill Duke call Arnie 'pig ass' or 'big ass'?
  • Tina Turner's excellent 'Thunderdome' anthem

Clips used:

  • Commando
  • Thunderball
  • Mad Max 2
  • The Warriors
  • Power Rangers Time Force
  • The Making of Commando

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
