Episode 42: The Pirate Movie (1982) [Featuring Realweegiemidget Reviews]


Welcome to the first podcast episode of the year! This is also our first collaboration with Gill from Realweegiemidget Reviews. We will podcast and she will post a blog article as a companion piece. You can go ahead and check out her post before listening to the show.

Later on in the year, Gill will appear on the podcast. In the meantime, Gill will be writing a monthly trailer review to complement some of this podcast’s new content for 2022 about 1980s films, TV and books. We then promote each other’s content online and add our links to each other’s work.

Now on to this treasure of a movie!

Normally, I would play a trailer of the movie here. Instead, THE ENTIRE MOVIE is free and available on YouTube. So feel free to check it out first. Or you can listen to the podcast first and see if I convinced you to watch it.

On with the show! And please leave comments below to let us know what you think of this movie. You can click on the picture below to get the podcast episode, or you can download and subscribe through one of the services listed at the bottom of this article.
