Lastertime's Behind The Scenes Viewing Listby jrralls | created - 25 May 2017 | updated - 29 Jul 2018 | Public
THIRTY TWENTY TEN is a Lasertime podcast that covers the pop culture landscape of thirty years ago, twenty years ago, and ten years ago and it is my favorite podcast. The hosts are skilled, they know their subject matter, they cover a wide range of pop culture topics and are always interesting, especially the behind the scenes info they give on the movies, games, and music of the time. To make a list of all the movies and media they recommend would be superfluous but if you want to go in more depth to some of their topics here are some great Making-Of-Doc some that they have recommended:

R | 106 min | Documentary, Biography, History
The history of the independent film company, The Cannon Film Group, Inc..
This is the big one. If you listen to Thirty Twenty Ten for any amount of time this film WILL come up and there is a very good reason: it’s amazing! It may be my favorite film about making movies of all time. Covering the Rise and Fall of Cannon films from makers of schlocky cheap movies to makers of schlocky EXPENSIVE movies (they did Superman IV: The Quest For Peace) this film shows you a side of movie-making that isn’t often covered and does so in a really entertaining way. HIGHLY recommended.

Jedi may have came out in 1983, but Kerner pumped out toys for a long a time after that. I have a lot of fun memories of playing with these and so do a lot of people who were kids in the 1980’s.
Not Rated | 97 min | Documentary, Adventure
A behind the scenes chronicle of how clash of vision, bad creative decisions, lack of interest and really bad weather plagued the disastrous production of the infamous The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996).
There are some movies about the making of a film that are better than the film itself. This is one of them. The story told here of the making of the infamous 1996 version of The Island of Dr. Moreau is way better than that film itself.
30 for 30 (2009– )
Documentary, Biography, History
Explores the years that Evander Holyfield spent trying to arrange his first fight with Mike Tyson.
The hosts of Thirty Twenty Ten will not hesitate to tell you, repeatedly, that they do not like to watch sports. They will also not hesitate to recommend many episodes of ESPN’s Thirty For Thirty series because they are fantastic stories in and of themselves. The story of Evander Holyfield, a tremendously talented boxer, being completely overshadowed by the utterly dominating media presence of Mike Tyson is fun to watch even if, like me, you’ve never seen a real boxing match in your life.
