In 1987, European director Paul Verhooven was tasked to direct a unique action film set in a not-so-distant future involving a cyborg police officer that tackled the excesses of that decade. The film, RoboCop, would turn into a franchise in of itself and become a nostagic element of the decade. But does this film truly deserve such adoration or is it really worth just a dollar? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris suit up to find out.

In 2016, a small indie film quickly and quietly became one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year, storming into the awards season and finally landing the Best Picture Academy Award. Moonlight tells the story of a young black boy as he becomes a man through a tumultuous childhood along with an array of colorful characters that influence him along the way. But does this critical darling deserve the glory it recieved or should it have gone to that other Best Picture "winner"? MovieDude Eric, Kent and special guests Jonolobster and Cesar find out.

In 1946, just one year after World War II had ended, director William Wyler pursued a passion project of his about the lives of three war vets whose return home came with turmoil and challenges. The film was highly celebrated at the time and yet has fallen off the radar over the years, but did the film deserve this or does it shine as one of the best depictions of veterans ever filmed? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris investigate.
