To help give the new Star Wars movie a Totes Recall bump, we recall The Empire Strikes Back (1980). We discuss space workplace dynamics, snakes, and Molly learns that Star Wars takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.Read More
We recall Die Hard (1988) for the holidays! There's explosives, machine guns, and German accents! All the ingredients necessary for a Christmas classic. Plus, we talk about Winston the police officer and if there is a teddy bear in the movie.Read More
We recall 9 to 5 (1980), a workplace comedy about women sticking it to the/a man. Molly remembers finding three role models, Beth has a hard time using words, and Jaquette bets there's a man in the movie. Plus, we are thrown off our game by our new microphones. (Thank you, Patrons!)Read More
We recalled Psycho (1960) as a film about a man who dresses as his dead mother to commit murder. It turns out it's really about an adult who drinks milk. Like, a good portion of this episode is about milk. #milkRead More
We recall Blade Runner (1982), a movie so slowly paced, it took 35 years to release its sequel. We mostly remember that it's dark and Harrison Ford is in it. #naileditRead More
We recall Disney's The Parent Trap (1998), which is NOT the same movie as Freaky Friday, but does also star Lindsay Lohan. We discuss hats, Butler-Nanny love, and how Sammy the dog is the only sane character in this movie.Read More
Hellllooooooo! We recalled Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), a movie about a father pretending to be an older British woman in order to trick his wife and the law into letting him see his kids (more than once a week). We discuss how allergies work, why "drive by fruiting" is funny, and, to Molly's delight, divorce.Read More
In celebration of our three-year anniversary, we recall the film that is in the center of our anni-venndiagram, Batman & Robin (1997). We remember enough to know that it is A) a Batman movie and B) stars Arnold Schwarzenegger. Plus, we discover our new favorite person, Joe Prado, captain of transportation.Read More
What's happening. Yeah...we recalled Office Space (1999). We got the memo about the TPS reports, Jennifer Aniston being cool, and the stapler. But, uh, we're gonna need a little reminder about some other things.
Oh, and we almost forgot, Gertie (the dog) is very vocal in the first half of this episode. So...uh...yeah...we're sorry about that. Thanks.Read More
It's Respect Listener Opinions Month, which means we watched a movie selected by our awesome listeners. We recalled The Rock (1996) starring the Scottish actor and our fave, Nic Cage. There's plenty of green, not enough Cage Rage, and so much patriotism (USA #1 ).Read More
It's hard to forget that Bruce Lee is cool AF in Enter the Dragon (1973). Other details, we're not so clear on.Read More
Our memories of this movie don't amount to a hill of beans or something like that. We recalled Casablanca (1942), a film rife with famous quotes, intense emotion, and cigarettes. So. Many. Cigarettes.Read More
Can you feel the love tonight? We celebrate the month of love and romance with Disney's family film The Lion King (1994). There's stampede talk, butt jokes, and those two lions totally bang, right?Read More
Get ready for a lot of sighing. We recalled Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999), where the title is just as exhausting as the movie. There is hope it's not as bad as we remember, and there is disappointment for so many reasons.Read More
To celebrate this holiday season we recall Gremlins (1984), the movie where adorable kitten-toddlers turn into horrifying murder-monsters. Molly remembers being scarred watching the movie as a child, Joe Dante is born, and we find out why George Washington's birthday can be so depressing.Read More
Like awesome! Oh, wow! Like totally check it out! We recalled Bring It On (2000). Molly remembers having cheer fever, Beth attempts to recite a cheer, and the Dans reminisce about being forced into watching this movie.Read More
Subtitle: Molly's Redemption.
For the spooky month of October, we recalled the classic love story of a girl and her dead boyfriend, Ghost (1990). Molly gets a second chance to review the movie, we decide if it really does "have it all," and we get into the intricacies of ghost physics.Read More
Game over, man! We recall Aliens (1986), a sequel to a movie we remember being pretty good. There is a girl with the name of a small animal, Billy Pax, and a cat that is definitely dead (or definitely alive).Read More
"Better late than never," is what we always say at Totes Recall. So what if it is August? We recall Independence Day (1996). It's been 20 years, which means we've had 20 years to forget about which monuments are blown up by aliens and who plays Jeffy G's dad.Read More
Totes Recall just entered its terrible twos by recalling this terrible 2012 remake of Total Recall. Typically we try to watch a movie we've all seen, but this time we (p)recall the movie based on the original. We look forward to some crazy Arnie-style acting, Mars, and tummy muppets. Spoiler alert: we are sorely disappointed.
On our two-year anniversary, we would like to take this moment to thank all of our listeners for your continued support. Y'all are the best.Read More
