In 1978, the major studios were left in the wake of Star Wars trying to get science fiction films in theaters. Paramount Pictures, holders of the rights of a long-cancelled yet beloved television series called Star Trek, pulled it's creator and nearly the entire original cast back to active duty with famed director Robert Wise to create what would be one of the most divisive starts to a film franchise of all time. But does the film deserve the ire of critics and fans alike or is there more deep inside the nebula cloud that is the script? MovieDude Eric and Kent journey where quite a few podcasters have gone before to discover the truth.

In 1999 at the height of the teen comedy craze came a film set in 1978 about four boys' journey to see the legendary rock group KISS in Detroit and the only thing standing in their way is overjealous parents, the clergy, girls and their own ineptitude. While this film was panned by critics, MovieDude Eric, Kent & special guest Willie D. Nelson of All Things Good and Nerdy take the trip to Iron City to see if the critics were wrong.

January is once again on us and that only means one thing: Arthouse Legends looks at films panned by film critics and determine if they weren't given a fair chance. Special Guest Anthony from All Things Good and Nerdy joins us as we look at the 1980 surprise hit that would launch one of the largest horror franchises yet was so hated by critics that it caused several of them to literally dox the filmmakers and one of it's lead actors. But does Friday the 13th deserve such ridicule or has time vindicated this staple of horror (not taking into account the numerous sequels in its wake)? Join the MovieDude Eric, Kent and Anthony as they stretch out by the lake, take in some archery and possibly some Strip Monopoly (you might not want to be around for that).

It is a time of transition for Arthouse Legends as the show retools with new content and co-hosts. But before that happens, MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster say farewell to 2016 by looking back at the films discussed, give out some obligatory awards and enjoy one last ride together.
