Sometimes it’s just being a big sell-out. Sometimes it’s being an artistic chameleon. This week the MagHuge crew discusses musicians who straight up switched genres and changed their sound completely, or simply jumped on a trend to grab some filthy lucre…for better or worse. | 0:00 - Intros & Frozen Texas Blackout | 9:00 - The Thin Red Line (Jones, 1962) | 10:00 - The Little Things (2021) | 12:50 - Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel (Netflix, 2021) | 18:30 - MacGruber (2010) | 20:30 - Fantastic Planet (1973) | 28:00 - I Care A Lot (2021) | 31:55 - Music About Face | 33:45 - Ministry | 41:00 - Punk rock | 43:00 - Blondie | 45:00 - David Bowie | 46:00 - The Beatles | 46:35 - The Who | 47:30 - Todd Rundgren | 50:40 - Van Halen | 54:10 - Jewel | 55:25 - Shania Twain | 57:00 - Country Music Itself | 59:05 - Gwen Stefani | 1:00:10 - Miles Davis | 1:03:30 - Pink Floyd | 1:08:05 - Garth Brooks / Chris Gaines | 1:09:10 - Snoop Dog / Lion | 1:10:05 - The Damned | 1:12:20 - Taylor Swift | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Poppy - Concrete | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Thomas Newman - Little Things - the little things (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) | Wendy Blackstone - Theme to Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel | Katreese Barnes / Will Forte / John Solomon / Jorma Taccone - MacGruber's Theme | Alain Goraguer - Generique - Fantastic Planet | Marc Canham - Get Some Air - I Care A Lot | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Staind - It’s Been A While | Ministry - I Wanted to Tell Her | Ministry - Every Day Is Halloween | Ministry - Just Like You | Ministry - Stigmata | Ministry - So What | Ministry - Hero | Blondie - Heart of Glass | Blondie - The Tide Is High | David Bowie - Changes | David Bowie - Let’s Dance | David Bowie - Glass Spider | The Beatles - All My Loving | The Beatles - I Am The Walrus | The Who - The Kids Are Alright | The Who - The Real Me | Todd Rundgren - Bang the Drum All Day | The New Cars - Bye Bye Love | TR-i - Fascist Christ 1.0 | Van Halen - Runnin’ with the Devil | Van Halen - Jump | Van Halen - When It’s Love | Van Halen - Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love | Jewel - Who Will Save Your Soul | Jewel - Intuition | Shania Twain - Any Man of Mine | Shania Twain - Man!

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.

Predator is a bona fide classic sci-fi actioner starring Arnold Schwarzenegger that rocks. Sadly, all of its sequels suck. Like, a LOT. They are all terrible for different reasons, of course, but terrible nonetheless. Which is weird, because other notable series have managed at least one or two good sequels (even some not involving James Cameron). But not the Predator franchise, which should have just stopped at the first one. Is this even worth exploring with a superficial analysis only Magnificently Huge can provide? Obviously. So get to da chopper and let us dazzle you with our savage takedown of a stinky film franchise that has zero reason to exist - (The) Predator(s)(vs. Aliens: Requiem)(2), or whatever. | 0:00 - Intros | 4:55 - WandaVision (2021) | 14:10 - Harley Quinn (2020) | 16:40 - Superman: Red Son (2020) | 18:30 - Bob’s Burgers | 20:10 - Tenet (2020) | 28:15 - Predator, Predator 2 (1987, 1990) | 38:20 - AVP: Alien vs Predator (2004) | 43:50 - Aliens vs Predator: Requiem (2007) | 48:20 - Predators (2010) | 56:20 - The Predator (2018) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Predator: The Musical (Arnold Schwarzenegger) - legolambs (youtube): https://youtu.be/qlicWUDf5MM | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Clips from WandaVision | Jefferson Friedman - Harley Quinn TV Show Main Theme | Frederik Wiedmann - Superman: Red Son Theme | Loren Bouchard - Bob’s Burgers Theme | Ludwig Göransson - RAINY NIGHT IN TALLINN | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Alan Silvestri - Predator 2 | Harald Kloser - Alien vs. Predator Main Theme | Brian Tyler & Hollywood Studio Symphony - Aliens Vs.

This week we take a look at Ben Stiller’s other classic movie, the one that isn’t “Zoolander.” This film-within-a-war-film is a hilariously scathing look at vapid Hollywood culture and it remains one of the last completely politically incorrect films of its kind. So check your virtue signals at the door and have a great time with our talk about a comedy juggernaut - Tropic Thunder! | 0:00 - Intros | 5:00 - Geostorm (2017) | 9:15 - Doom Patrol (HBO Max) | 12:45 - The King of Staten Island (2020) | 17:30 - Antarctica: A Year on Ice (2013, Curiosity Stream) | 20:10 - City Slickers (1991) | 23:00 - My Blue Heaven (1990) | 25:15 - Immortals Fenyx Rising (2020) | 25:50 - Demon’s Souls / Dark Souls III | 28:45 - Stardust (2007) | 31:30 - Tropic Thunder (2008) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | The Crystal Method - Name Of The Game | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Lorne Balfe - Nature Warning - Geostorm | Clint Mansell, Kevin Kiner & Sean Kiner - Main Titles (Doom Patrol) | Michael Andrews & Emile Haynie - Wake Up Staten Island - The King of Staten Island | Trailer for Antarctica: A Year on Ice | Marc Shaiman - Main Title - City Slickers | Ira Newborn - My Blue Heaven Merengue | Gareth Coker - Heart of the Hero - Immortals Fenyx Rising | Shunsuke Kida - Demon’s Souls | Ilan Eshkeri - Cap’n’s At The Helm - Stardust | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Clips from Tropic Thunder (2008) | Ludacris - Get Back
Happy New Year 2021 and welcome to the 3rd Annual MagHuge Freshitravaganza Show! It’s our usual “we took the last 2 weeks of the year off and don’t have a real topic so let’s just talk about all the movies & TV we gorged over the holiday break” episode. Because let’s be real, 2020 sucked hard. And like you, we only did the bare minimum to entertain ourselves while stress-eating junk food from the couch LIKE A BOSS. Cineplexes may be closed (thanks, COVID!) but we still had a ton of streaming services slapping our eyeballs with content old and new! Join us for our salute to slothiness, plus a giant middle finger to the stupid pandemic year we’d rather forget.

Get ready for the lumpiest lump of coal in our collective 2020 stocking as the MagHuge team dives into classic Christmas horror movies! It’s been a pretty horrible year, what with the pandemic and all, so we are dumping our usual Holiday Cheer for some Krampus Fear! We even throw in a couple of Psycho Santas and a ghost of Christmas Future in our picks and nix for solid alternatives to the regularly scheduled treacly family fare that bombards us every season. So whether you’ve been naughty or nice, enjoy this very special episode with a respectable body count.

Episode 164 - The Boys

Episode 164 - The Boys

2020-12-1401:15:14

If you are as tired of superheroes as we are right now then you are gonna love this hot take on The Boys, a dark satire that eviscerates the recent Disney/MCU commodification of the comic book movie genre with a steel-toed kick right to the codpiece. Loosely based on the ultra-violent cult comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys explores the basic idea of “What if superheroes were real? And what if they were all a**holes?” Throw in a rag-tag team of vigilantes intent on taking them all down and you get a bonkers, profanity-laden, ultraviolent funhouse ride. But underneath the veneer hides some very pointed critiques of our modern world that resonate beyond simply a bunch of weirdos in spandex blowing stuff up real good. It’s sharp, it’s funny, and we really dig it. So we thought we’d spoil it all for you! | 0:00 - Intros | 3:30 - The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) | 10:45 - Freaky (2020) | 15:30 - The Prom (2020) | 23:45 - Escape From L.A.

Some movies think you’re dumb. They create situations that are so unbelievable, you can’t side with them any longer. Breaks in logic so severe, only a fan of the “Fast and Furious" movies could possibly stick with it. Like when James Bond falls into a 200 foot gorge, but of course he survives because… reasons. This week’s episode is a discussion of the movies that stretched the reality possible in film - until it broke. | 0:00 - Intros | 5:30 - Jiu Jitsu (2020) | 10:00 - Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X impressions | 11:30 - Immortals Fenyx Rising (Xbox Series X) | 14:00 - Demon’s Souls (PS5) | 20:30 - 808 (2015) | 28:30 - Glass (2019) | 29:40 - Flight That Disappeared (1961) | 30:53 - Nuking The Fridge / Killing Suspension of Disbelief / That’s Stupid | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Negativland - Theme from “A Big 10-9 Place” | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Trailer to Jiu Jitsu (2020) | Trailer to Crazy World (2019) | Gareth Coker - Heart of the Hero - Immortals Fenyx Rising | Shunsuke Kida - Demon’s Souls | 808 Drum Pattern - Beastie Boys - TR-808 https://youtu.be/N5zOj3Cdej4 | West Dylan Thordson - Physicks - Glass Original Motion Picture Soundtrack | Richard LaSalle - Flight That Disappeared Theme | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Clip from Steel Magnolias (1989)
As we lick our wounds from the beating that is 2020, enjoy this re-run from the first year of MagHuge! This week, the movies and music with hidden meanings, agendas, or that were just poorly thought out. (Like rooting for rapists - even if they are nerds.) But first, as ever, Brian, Chris, and Eric dish the Fresh S**t. It’s all the movies, TV shows, music and games of the week that were discussed but that I cannot remember because it was recorded days ago and I’m getting so, so sleepy now.

Episode 162 - Turkey Shoot

Episode 162 - Turkey Shoot

2020-11-2301:06:55

In lieu of our annual Thanksgiving extravaganza podcast, this year we instead watched the 1982 Ozsploitation cult classic, Turkey Shoot. Because it has the word ‘turkey’ in the title. None of the MagHuge crew had ever seen it before, so this was a true adventure into the unknown for us. How bad could a grindhouse movie set in a dystopian future where rich 1%-ers hunt political prisoners for sport be? It’s stuffed to the rafters with gratuitous nudity and over-the-top violence, which always equals production value in our book. It also has some of the nuttiest Running Man-meets-Braddock vibes this side of that time we saw Chuck Norris dance the Running Man at a wedding we once crashed in Orlando. Or perhaps that was only a fever dream… Regardless, Turkey Shoot is just the ticket to help us forget that we now live in a dystopian future where rich 1%-ers hunt us for sport. And boy howdy, it is a hoot! Happy Turkey Shoot Day 2020, errbody! | 0:00 - Intros | 7:15 - Doolittle (2020) | 13:40 - Save Yourselves!

YouTube is the ultimate expression of Gen-X laziness. If you were a pre-internet kid, and you had to go to the library to look up stuff, you probably had the thought, “Why can’t all this junk just be movies I can watch? Why do I need to sift through a whole book to find the part about sightings of the chupacabra? Why can’t I find the real dirt on mini submarines that were part of the attack on Pearl Harbor? WHAT’S ALL THIS READIN’ FER;!?!” YouTube is a great place to get chunklets of information on weird subjects any time you want it. Without librarians. Because those old ladies were horrible. But that’s a topic for another time. | 0:00 - Intros | 4:23 - Killing Eve (Season 3) | 10:30 - Xbox Series X v.

Episode 160 - It Got Weird

Episode 160 - It Got Weird

2020-11-0901:07:25

Ever watch a movie and think, “This is just plain weird”? Like us, you can probably come up with dozens of examples of films that were intentionally strange. The challenge this round was to come up with examples of movies that, instead of being deliberately odd, appeared to be made in earnest but turned out INCREDIBLY WEIRD. LIke, WTF-level weirdness. Like, why would they make this? That’s it, that’s the whole show. An arbitrary mess of personal opinions about films that left a dark mark on our fragile psyches because we expected a regular good time and got something wholly different instead. From dramas to sci-fi to big-budget studio musicals, this one has a little something for everyone.

Hey, the 2020 election is upon us here in the United States (or was upon us, depending on when you catch this)! We as citizens get to vote and make an effort to engage in our democracy! But like most of you we are a tad anxious about, well ...EVERYTHING. So we thought we’d go back and watch a few old movies about how politics makes for strange bedfellows to see if we can learn anything new. Hint: We don’t. We’re still pretty effed, as far as we can tell - unless that’s just the booze talking. From Elia Kazan’s 1957 classic “A Face in the Crowd” to a slew of 90’s political comedies like “Bob Roberts” and “Bulworth” and into the more recent past with satires like “In the Loop” - we realized that the more things change, the more they kinda stay the same. But we f*#$ing voted anyway. Give us a call if you need a ride to the polls before they close. | 0:00 - Intros | 6:50 - Hazel (TV Series, 1961) | 17:45 - The Exorcist III (1990) | 23:35 - It (2017), It Chapter 2 (2019) | 26:35 - Perry Mason (HBO, 2020) | 31:30 - The Dollop (podcast) | 32:55 - Love and Monsters (2020) | 35:35 - Roald Dahl’s The Witches (2020) | 42:14 - Bulworth (1998) | 48:20 - Wag The Dog (1997) | 50:40 - A Face In The Crowd (1957) | 55:40 - Bob Roberts (1992) | 59:00 - Feed (1992) | 1:01:50 - In The Loop (2009) | 1:06:45 - Election (1999 ) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Arcadia - Election Day | Trailer for Zardoz | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | The Modernaires - Hazel Theme Song | Barry De Vorzon - The Exorcist III Main Title | Clip from The Exorcist III | Benjamin Wallfisch - Every 27 Years (Reprise) - It (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) | Clip from It Chapter 2 | Terence Blanchard - Perry Mason Theme | Marco Beltrami and Marcus Trumpp - End Credits - Love and Monsters | Alan Silvestri - Enter the Witches | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Clip from Bulworth (1998) | Tom Glazer - Main Title (A Face in the Crowd) | Clips from Bob Roberts (1992) | Clips from In The Loop (2009) | Rolfe Kent - Anyone - Election | The Dead Milkmen - Life Is Shit
Rob Zombie movies are a lot like Rob Zombie songs - except it’s easier to understand the words. Maybe that’s an oversimplification. But that’s okay, because if there’s one virtue to a Rob Zombie film, it’s that they’re overly simple. This week we talk about the wacky, dark, violent oeuvre of Rob Zombie as filmmaker, dishing on what we thought of the movies of his we were able to find for free. There’s a lot of good stuff in there. Maybe that should have been the title of this podcast. If you’ve wanted to dip your toes into the Zombiewaters before, this is a great place to start. And if you’re an old hand at his work, the comments section is right down there.

When you sit down to a movie called Killer Klowns From Outer Space, you pretty much know what to expect. This cult B-movie from 1988 is both a glorious tribute and giant middle finger to the classic alien invader movies from the 50’s we all loved as kids. Only this time, it’s murderous Klowns™ who have landed on Earth to harvest humanity for food! Played with tongue firmly in cheek, this film by special effects wizards The Chiodo Brothers is not scary or tense at all (and barely even funny most of the time, if we’re truly honest). But it IS way more inventive than any movie titled Killer Klowns From Outer Space has any right to be. And for that alone we salute it. Plus, it has what we consider to be one of the greatest theme songs of all time by fave L.A. punk icons, The Dickies! So sit back and get a pie in the face with our big, stupid podcast celebration about yet another crap movie we may actually kinda like. | 0:00 - Intros | 4:33 - Judy (2019) | 8:55 - Innerspace (1987) | 13:25 - Song Exploder (Netflix, 2020) | 16:30 - Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001) | 19:50 - Staged (2020) | 23:50 - Phantasm (1979) | 28:30 - Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | The Dickies - Killer Klowns | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Renee Zellweger & Sam Smith - Get Happy | Jerry Goldsmith - Gut Reaction - Innerspace soundtrack | Leslie Odom Jr., Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton - Wait for It | Hedwig and the Angry Inch - Angry Inch | Hedwig and the Angry Inch - Wig In a Box | Lambeth Wind Orchestra - Alex Baranowski - Music from Staged | Horror Movie Theme Orchestra - Phantasm | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Clips from Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988) | John Massari - Killer Klown March

Remember...The Nuge’ll taint ya! A long time ago, music was performed by people with instruments. That led to people who were really good at playing them. And that led to Supergroups: Collections of the best performers who are the finest in their own bands, teaming up to make what was hoped would be an even bigger musical success. Think Avengers with Les Pauls. This week, we go over some of the biggest names in the genre. | 0:00 - Intros | 6:00 - South Park Pandemic Special (2020) | 8:30 - National Treasure (2004) | 14:15 - Watchmen (2009) | 18:25 - Colin Quinn: Unconstitutional (2015) | 20:22 - The Good Place | 23:00 - Grand Theft Auto V (2013) | 26:30 - Smartless (podcast) | 28:35 - Archer | 30:45 - Risky Business | 35:00 - Supergroups | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | The Traveling Wilburys - Handle With Care | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Primus - South Park Theme | Trevor Rabin - National Treasure Suite | Tyler Bates - Rescue Mission - Watchmen | Clip from Colin Quinn Unconstitutional | David Schwartz - The Good Place Opening Music | Grand Theft Auto V Theme | Scott Sims Mel Young JG Thirlwell - Archer Theme Song | Tangerine Dream - Love On A Real Train | Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band - Old TIme Rock & Roll | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song | Emerson Lake & Palmer - Eruption | Electronic - Idiot Country | Electronic - Disappointed | Electronic - Getting Away With It | Staind - It’s Been A While | Damn Yankees - Coming of Age | Velvet Revolver - Sucker Train Blues | Velvet Revolver - Slither | Audioslave - Show Me How to Live | Prophets of Rage - Prophets of Rage | Temple of the Dog - Hunger Strike | Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Helpless | The Traveling Wilburys - End of the Line | Highwaymen - The Last Cowboy Song | The Lords Of The New Church - Open Your Eyes | The Lords Of The New Church - Dance With Me | Lard - The Power of Lard | Pigface - Bitch | Pigface - F**k it up (Did You Ever Get the Feeling?) | Pigface - Suck | This Mortal Coil - Kangaroo | FFS - Collaborations Don’t Work | The Brides of Funkenstein - Disco To Go

You don’t get to hire a guy for his artistic vision, subvert his work, and then blame him for the result. That’s what happened with 2015’s “Fantastic Four,” or as it was stylized on so many Denny’s menus at the time, “Fant4stic.” What was originally conceived as a gross, body horror drama got reverse-engineered into a bad Avengers clone - because nobody wants action figures of The Thing who is constantly in pain. (Except us!) We’ll be talking about the continuing failures of all the Fantastic Four films this week - but we come to bury Caesar, not to praise him. Fant4stic is not good. It is, however, worth looking further into why its audacious concept didn’t (or wasn’t allowed to?) work. Here is the Bob Chipman pitch for how to bring the Fantastic Four into the MCU: https://youtu.be/VehLxh5wCU8 | 0:00 - Intros | 3:05 - An American Pickle (2020) | 7:05 - Staged (2020) | 9:20 - Enola Holmes (2020) | 16:54 - Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (2004) | 19:45 - Ratched (2020) | 25:24 - Fantastic Four | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Fantastic Four The Animated Series Theme | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Michael Giacaccio and Nami Melumad - The Pickle Empire Strikes Back - An American Pickle | Lambeth Wind Orchestra - Alex Baranowski - Music from Staged | Daniel Pemberton - Enola Holmes (Wild Child) | Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas theme | Leonard Bernstein - Danse Macabre, Op 40 | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Marco Beltrami and Philip Glass - Fantastic Four Main Theme | Shaggy - Boombastic | Fantastic Four Theme Song (1967)
