Episode 187 - 30 Rocketeer

2021-06-2101:09:21

Strap in for some pure escapist fun, because we’re celebrating the 30th Anniversary of The Rocketeer! Based on a popular indie comic, The Rocketeer is basically Indiana Jones Meets Iron Man done as an earnest, cynicism-free homage to the 1930’s movie adventure serials of yesteryear. Put out by Disney, this was supposed to be the start of a a big franchise. Sadly, it landed with a mild thud amid some very stiff competition in the summer of 1991. Which is too bad, really, because The Rocketeer is flippin’ awesome fun, kids. A zippy-fast joyride that doesn’t wear out its welcome, this near-perfect summer popcorn flick is best known now as the audition reel that landed director Joe Johnston the gig for Captain America: The First Avenger. And it is one of our favorite movies from any era. So say all of us! | 0:00 - Intros | 7:30 - Luca (Pixar, 2021) | 16:25 - Startup (Crackle, 2016) | 18:20 - Wallander | 22:40 - Black Summer (Netflix, 2019) | 26:20 - 1917 (2020) | 33:23 - The Rocketeer (1991) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Devo - Human Rocket | A Tribe Called Quest - Can I Kick It? | Beastie Boys - Intergalactic | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Dan Romer - Portorosso - Luca Original Motion Picture Soundtrack | Tristan Clopet - Lightbulb - Startup Soundtrack | Emily Barker - Nostalgia (Wallander version) | Black Summer Theme Music | Thomas Newman - Up the Down Trench - 1917 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Melora Hardin - Begin The Beguine - The Rocketeer | James Horner - Main Title - The Rocketeer | James Horner - End Titles - The Rocketeer
For years, we’ve all found something in a movie that was incorrect - something with it’s own canon, wrong historical references, or just stuff so weird you wonder how it wound up in there in the first place. But what if these things were intentional, put there to hint at a larger universe just out of view? Fan theories work to cover mistakes by creating more interesting possibilities. Today, we share some of our favorites. | 0:00 - Intros | 5:05 - Loki (Disney+, 2021) | 12:30 - Joe Walsh | 16:50 - Habitat For Humanity | 18:00 - Hacks (HBO, 2021) | 22:00 - Bo Burnham Inside (Netflix, 2021) | 26:20 - Street Gang: How We Got To Sesame Street | 28:40 - The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard (2021) | 31:30 - Goofy Fan Film Theories | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | The Presidents of the United States of America - Peaches | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Natalie Holt - Loki Theme | Joe Walsh - A Life Of Illusion | Joe Walsh - Desperado (Live) | Joe Walsh - Life’s Been Good | Etta James - Fire | Bo Burnham - Shit | Bo Burnham - Welcome To The Internet | Alti Orvarsson - The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | “Weird Al” Yankovic - Everything You Know Is Wrong
We’ve had enough. Enough of the grim. Enough of the dark. Enough of the grimdark! There’s only so many movies about depression, stress, and violence we can tolerate. Reality is depressing enough. So this week we’re looking for some pick-me-ups. We’re talking about movies that lift the spirits. Fun, dammit! FUN! Also Cruella I guess. | 0:00 - Intros | 4:30 - Alexander (2004) | 9:00 - Cruella (2021) | 20:45 - The A Team | 29:30 - Upload (2020) | 33:30 - Happy and Fun movies! | 35:00 - Singin’ in the Rain (1952) | 44:30 - 50 First Dates (2004) | 50:30 - The Muppet Movie (1979) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Bon Jovi - Bad Medicine | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Vangelis - Across the Mountains - Alexander Original Motion Picture Soundtrack | Florence + the Machine - Call me Cruella | Deep Purple - Hush | Lunachicks - Spoilt / Joss Stone - Spoiled / Monty Python - Spam | John Swihart - The A Team Title Theme | Joseph Stephens - Upload Main Title Theme | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Clip from Singin’ in the Rain | Jason Mraz - I Melt With You | Kermit & Fozzie - Movin’ Right Along - The Muppet Movie | Gonzo - I’m Going To Go Back There Someday - The Muppet Movie | Kermit - Rainbow Connection - The Muppet Movie | Kermit & Rowlf - I Hope That Somethin Better Comes Along | Samantha Fox - I Wanna Have Some Fun
Zack Snyder, you got your zombie movie on my heist flick! Or did you get your heist flick on this crazy new film mashup, Army of the Dead? We’re putting a team together for a smash-and-grab spoilerific review of the 2.5-hour long zombie-heist-action-comedy romp no one asked for, from a director who is notorious for being all style, little substance. So strap in for some Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Magnificently Huge style! Because what becomes undead in Vegas apparently borrows heavily from literally dozens of other, better movies for the breakout popcorn hit of early 2021! | 0:00 - Intros | 5:00 - Highlander reboot rumors | 7:30 - The Shadow (1994) | 12:15 - Wrath of Man (2021) | 18:45 - Startup (Netflix) | 22:50 - The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Disney+, 2021) | 28:20 - Army of the Dead (2021) [SPOILERS] | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | The Cranberries - Zombie | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Jerry Goldsmith - The Shadow | Chris Benstead, Chamber Orchestra of London & Tom Kilworth - Wrath of Man | Clip from Startup S1E1: Seed Money | Henry Jackson - The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Theme | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Lunachicks - Spoilt / Joss Stone - Spoiled / Monty Python - Spam | Elvis Presley - A Little Less Conversation (JXL Radio Edit Remix)
If you had a time machine, and someone else already went back in time to kill Hitler, when would you go? That’s the tortured premise we’re going with this week, as each of the boys reveals their own choice destination - based on that year’s music, movies, TV shows, video games and noteworthy disasters.

Episode 182 - Retcons

2021-05-1353:35

Sometimes they’re just hoping you weren’t paying attention. Sometimes creative control changes hands and people want to take a new direction. Sometimes it’s just a craven cash grab. Every time, they’re counting on us to be stupid. To not care. To...not have the internet yet. Once upon a time they could get away with it, but IT WAS ALL A DREAM! This week the MagHuge crew talks retcons. | 0:00 - Intros | 3:30 - ios14, Facebook, and privacy | 8:30 - The Stand (Paramount Plus, 2021) | 10:30 - Jupiter’s Legacy (Netflix, 2021) | 11:45 - Lady Snowblood (1973) | 14:15 - Eating Raoul (1982) | 16:30 - In The Heights (2021) | 24:00 - Retcons | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Tears for Fears - Change | The Dead Milkmen - Life Is Shit | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Clip from The Stand | Stephanie Economou - Jupiter’s Legacy Theme | Meiko Kaji - Flower of Carnage (Shura no Hana) - Lady Snowblood | Jon Beres - Exactly Like You - Eating Raoul | Anthony Ramos, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and the cast of In The Heights - In The Heights | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Joystick! - Retcon
Episode 181 - Fourth Films in a Franchise Hey, The Magnificently Huge Podcast officially turns four years old with this one! Since the fourth time's the charm (or however the saying goes), we’ll be yukking it up about the fourth entries in some of the most (in)famous movie franchises of all time. Fourth films are seldom needed, often pointless, usually lazy, and rare is the entry that transcends the IP. It’s the good, the bad and the downright ugly for series chapters that either either helped extend the life of a franchise, or killed the brand irrevocably with terminal sequelitis. As always, there are a few hidden gems amid the pile of shameless money grabs, so buckle up! And may the Fourths be with you! | 0:00 - Intros | 5:10 - Paramount Plus is overrun with Alex Kurtzman | 13:30 - The Darjeeling Limited (2007) | 17:00 - Monster Hunter (2021) | 21:30 - Returnal (PS5, 2021) | 24:15 - Mack Bolan books | 29:00 - The Girl With All The Gifts (2016) | 30:15 - Fourth Films in a Franchise | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Altered Images - Happy Birthday | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Morton Stevens - Hawaii Five 0 Theme | Satyajit Ray - Teen Kanya | Paul Haslinger - Monster Hunter Main Theme | The Haxan Cloak - The Forest - Returnal | Cristobal Tapia de Veer - Gifted - The Girl with All the Gifts | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | John Williams - Prelude Main Title March - Superman The Movie | Clip from Superman IV: The Quest For Peace | Michael Kamen & Eric Clapton & David Sanborn - Don’t Turn - Lethal Weapon 4 | John Cafferty - Heart’s On Fire - Rocky IV | Tuesday Knight - Running From This Nightmare - Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master | Edge of Ettiquete - I Hate You - Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home | Michael Giacchino - Light The Fuse - Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol | Junkie XL - Chapter Doof - Mad Max Fury Road | Smashing Pumpkins - The End Is The Beginning Is The End
Movies in this genre are about kids having their last moments of childhood. They are typically comedies but have some element of bittersweet, usually because the middle aged white man writing it misses his youth. The result is something that makes young people terrified of age, and old people sad to be old. Kind of like this podcast! | 0:00 - Intros | 3:55 - Mr. Mercedes (Peacock, 2021) | 7:10 - The Stand (Paramount Plus, 2021) | 13:35 - Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002) | 17:20 - The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (s1e5 2021) | 23:00 - Mortal Kombat (1995) vs Mortal Kombat (2021) | 33:00 - Films about The Last Hurrah Of Youth | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Bowling For Soup - High School Never Ends | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | T Bone Burnett - It's Not Too Late | Clip from The Stand | Alex Wurman - Cautionary Tale - Confessions of a Dangerous Mind | Henry Jackson - The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Theme | Lunachicks - Spoilt / Joss Stone - Spoiled / Monty Python - Spam | The Immortals - Techno Syndrome | Clip from Doctor Who | VWLS - Emergence (Mortal Kombat 2021) | Benjamin Wallfisch - Techno Syndrome 2021 - Mortal Kombat Official Soundtrack | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Clip from Fandango (1985) | Simple Minds - Don’t You (Forget About Me)
Hey, look! It's another music nostalgia show about death and the 90's… only fun! We revisit the soundtrack to a decade full of great songs and the artists who eventually left this earth way too soon, thereby ruining any chance of a reunion tour. Thanks, heroin! Cheers, depression! Kudos, irony! SPOILER: There were other bands besides Nirvana back then, kids. So fire up our mixtape salute to surviving the post-grunge world with a giant Gen-X shrug!

The 21st Century has given us plenty of great films so far. Some are inarguable classics, even. But we're here today instead to talk about the more obscure gems that maybe fell through the cracks a little bit over the years.

It’s spring break! That time of year when college students flock to beaches and parties, to get drunk, get wild, and… get tricked into thinking this is normal. In truth, it’s a week of wasted money, alcohol poisoning, assaults, and lost expectations. So that’s this week’s show! Because a lot of people are searching “Spring Break,” and we love it when people actually hear this stuff we do! | 0:00 - Intros | 3:10 - Brockmire (IFC, Hulu) | 10:25 - Ghosts ‘N Goblins Resurrection (Nintendo Switch) | 12:30 - The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Disney+ s1e2) | 17:25 - Best TV Shows that Never Were | 20:24 - Spring Break | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | The Lonely Island - Spring Break Anthem | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Clip from Brockmire - s1e1 | Kento Hasegawa Masato Kouda Ryuta Hida - Graveyard - Ghosts ‘N Goblins Resurrection | Henry Jackson - The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Theme | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | AJ Mitchell - Spring Break (feat.

The fans have spoken and the SnyderCut of DCEU's Justice League has finally been released! Was it worth the wait? Does it correct the terrible sins of Joss Whedon's midwifed 2017 stillbirth? Does it even matter?

Episode 174 - Man Bites Dog Man Bites Dog is, without a doubt, one of the most disturbing movies we have ever seen. This indie-mockumentary about film students following around a serial killer is the darkest of black comedies, and also a work of accidental genius. Best described as This Is Spinal Tap meets A Clockwork Orange, Man Bites Dog won the Critics’ Prize at the 1992 Cannes Film Festival and cemented its controversial standing in film history. Not bad for a cult movie made by amateurs for zero money. Definitely not for the squeamish, this film is a prescient look at our current reality-based entertainment landscape. But watch it at your own risk, laugh at your own peril, then feel a bit disgusted with yourself after it is all over.

Even some of the best movies have… well, issues. We want to talk about some of our favorite movies that have some glaring problems. From a war movie that secretly thinks war is cool, to a teen comedy about a sociopath, to a comedy classic whose cast includes the world’s most famous murderer running back. | 0:00 - Intros | 2:20 - On NOT watching Tom & Jerry (2021) | 4:00 - Get Shorty (1995) | 8:50 - Paramount+ | 12:20 - I’m Alan Partridge (1997) | 17:50 - This Is Spinal Tap (1984) | 19:30 - Doomsday: 10 Ways the World Will End (History Channel, 2020) | 24:30 - Our Favorite Problematic Movies | 25:45 - Saving Private Ryan (1998) | 38:15 - Honorable Mention: Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) | 39:41 - The Naked Gun (1988) | 47:40 - Animal House (1978) | 48:45 - Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Ice-T - 99 Problems | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Christopher Lennertz - Tom & Jerry | Marcelito - Chilli Hot | Clip from I’m Alan Partridge | Spinal Tap - (Listen To The) Flower People | Spinal Tap - Hell Hole | Clip from Doomsday: 10 Ways the World Will End | Trailer for Doomsday (2008) | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | John Williams - Hymn to the Fallen - Saving Private Ryan | John Williams & London Symphony Orchestra - Han Solo and the Princess - Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) | Ira Newborn - The Naked Gun Theme | The English Beat - March of the Swivel Heads | Yello - Oh Yeah
Sometimes it’s just being a big sell-out. Sometimes it’s being an artistic chameleon.

Every sitcom since the dawn of TV has a staple character known as The Wacky Neighbor. That annoying, nosy, or smart-alecky weirdo who bursts through the always-unlocked door with manic energy to deliver some quick exposition or a snarky one-liner before they make a hasty, pratfall-laced exit to uproarious canned laughter. Every. Single. Time. Which begs the question: Is a sitcom without a wacky neighbor even really a sitcom? Join us as we name as many of these classic characters as memory allows in a vain effort to get to the bottom of things. From Kramer to Urkel to Mrs. Kravitz and beyond, you won’t want to miss this deeply shallow dive into TV history made possible by a lifetime sitting blankly in front of the boob tube. | 0:00 - Intros | 6:40 - Artemis Fowl (2020) | 12:00 - Barb & Star go to Vista Del Mar (2021) | 15:10 - Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury (Nintendo, 2021) | 20:15 - Veep (HBO) | 24:00 - Ken Burns Jazz The Story Of America’s Music | 32:00 - How To with John Wilson (HBO) | 33:20 - Them Wacky TV Neighbors | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Patsy Cline - Come On In | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Patrick Doyle - To the Surface - Artemis Fowl | Jamie Dornan - Edgar’s Prayer (Barb & Star Soundtrack) | Richard Cheese - I Love Boobies (Barb & Star Soundtrack) | Koji Kondo - Fort Flaptrap / Trickirty Tower - Bowser’s Fury | David Schwartz - Veep Opening Theme | Miles Davis - So What | Mike Epps pitches “That’s Racist” / Skankin’ Pickle - Racist World / “That’s Racist” kid | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Casio MT-240 Demo Song - Night Birds
Think tabloids are garbage? If we didn’t all love watching music and movie stars implode in real time, no one would be buying them. But we do love to leer at the terrible stuff they do - wife beatings, drug addictions, casting couches, rubbing one out in front of people… If we didn’t have all of these rich and famous people flaming out, what would we do with ourselves? This week, the gang takes a look at stars whose careers imploded - because sometimes they are forgiven, sometimes they can’t come back, and sometimes… we just forget about them altogether. | 0:00 - Intros | 7:00 - Salt (2010) | 15:24 - Pushing Daisies (2007) | 19:15 - God Of War (2018) | 22:45 - That Thing You Do!

Johnny Mnemonic is pretty dumb, but also pretty amazing. Made in 1995, this cyberpunk action romp imagines the future world of 2021 (ie, NOW) in which the internet requires an excessive amount of VR hardware and physical exertion to actually use. And that 180GB of memory is pushing the limits of file sizes. And that dolphins weaponized by the military are the ultimate hackers. And fax machines and VHS tapes are still somehow a thing. In short, it got just about everything wrong about right now - apart from a deadly global virus, corporate oppression and riots in the streets. Did we also mention it stars Keanu Reeves as the titular hero acting at his wooden best? All from a script by cyberpunk godfather William Gibson, cobbled together from his own groundbreaking novels, plus the tropes of literally every other sci-fi movie made before 1995. Ultimately, Johnny Mnemonic comes across as a low-budget dress-rehearsal for the much better 1999 cyberpunk classic with Reeves called The Matrix. Which still gives this ridiculous movie way too much credit. | 0:00 - Intros (in COVID time) | 4:15 - Disney World (in COVID time) | 20:15 - NHL Hockey (in COVID time) | 22:20 - Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) (in...COVID time?) | 27:00 - PG: Psycho Goreman (2021) (sure, why not? ...in COVID time!) | 31:55 - Listener Email!

As we take a break this week, enjoy a rerun of one of our earliest episodes. This was also one of those screwups where we totally lost one of the recordings and ended up doing some creative editing to give life to the “Chris Bot!” A discussion of the music we love - but don't brag about. Never going to give you up. Never going to let you down.
