#216 Pump Up The Volume

posted in: Episodes, Season 8 | 0

Part 2 of Listener Request Month takes us to 1990 for Christian Slater’s fantastic performance in Pump Up The Volume!

Shouldn’t he just see a therapist? Does this movie need a suicide to make its point? Why does he hate his parents so much? What’s up with the way-too-late corrupt school subplot?

All this and more!

Looking for episode #212? It’s E.T. The Extraterrestrial, and it’s at Patreon.com/DissectingThe80s, along with nearly 20 hours of bonus content at the $5 tier!
