Easy Riders Raging Podcast

From Star Wars to Saturday Night Fever, to The Godfather and Grease, Annie Hall and Alien, the 1970s was THE decade for great movies. Here at Easy Riders Raging Podcast we're looking back at all the classics of the decade, discussing the films of Scorsese, Friedkin, Coppola, Altman, De Palma and many many more. Aside from our discussions, each episode includes some of our trademark features such as Recastarama (where we recast the film using current actors) and Who Am I (where we work out who we would be in the film). Lots of fun to be had. [Our 1960s series is also available]

In this brief episode I look at three Woody Allen films - Bananas, Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex and Play It Again Sam- in terms of how much they held up on a 2019 rewatch. So in what ways are they dated, are they still funny and how do the allegations made against Allen affect a viewing of these films.
