The Cold War came to an end in 1989. A year later, Hollywood gave it a grand send-off with an adaptation of Tom Clancy’s breakout techno-thriller, The Hunt for Red October. Set in 1984 at the height of US-Soviet tensions, the movie slaps a fresh coat of paint on the classic Cold War tropes to do for submarines what Top Gun did for jets. The chase is on to find a rogue USSR nuclear sub trying to defect to the USA before the Motherland can blow it out of the water. Director John McTiernan was fresh off his insane run of stone cold 80’s classics Predator and Die Hard, and here turns in his third consecutive winner. Starring Sean Connery, Sam Neill, Tim Curry, James Earl Jones, and Scott Glenn - plus Alec Baldwin in his breakout role as the first (and best) Jack Ryan - The Hunt for Red October is a taut, fun ride from start to finish and the perfect coda for an era. So let’s take a deep dive on it, shall we? | 0:00 - Intros | 4:35 - Gerry Anderson’s Stingray (1964) | 12:10 - 7500 (2019) | 17:45 - Videogame announcement substitutes for E3 (Guerrilla Collective, PC Gaming Show, Future Games Show) | 24:27 - Crazy World (2014) | 30:20 - The Hunt for Red October (1990) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Basil Poledouris - Nuclear Scam - The Hunt for Red October | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Gerry Anderson’s Stingray - Opening Titles | Gerry Anderson’s Stingray - Aqua Marina | Trailer for Crazy World | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Basil Poledouris - Kaboom!!! - The Hunt for Red October | Basil Poledouris - Hymn to Red October (Main Title) - The Hunt for Red October
Question: Between the original 1987 version of Robocop and the 2014 reboot of Robocop, which is better? And why is it the original 1987 version? We’re diving into the universe of OCP’s most controversial crime fighting machine. We look at how such a goofy concept of a half-robot, half-human, all-crime fighter could have so much wit and black comedy in the middle of the Reagan era. We’ll also tear into it’s reboot, which had significantly better effects, higher budget, a cast of brilliant actors, and became a neutered, bland, tiresome cash grab. Because that’s what we do. | 0:00 - Intros | 4:32 - Get Shorty (Series, Epix 2017) | 8:50 - Terminal (2018) | 12:00 - Team America: World Police (2004) | 18:33 - Ninja III: The Domination | 21:55 - Homecoming (Amazon) | 25:00 - Robocop | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Sleaze Boys - Robocop | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Antonio Sanchez - Breezy - Get Shorty (Original Television Soundtrack) | Alexina - Silent Killer - Theme from the motion picture Terminal | America Fuck Yeah - Team America World Police | The End of an Act - Team America World Police | Freedom Isn’t Free - Team America World Police | Derka Derk (Terrorist Theme) - Team America World Police | Sally Zapulla - Love Bites - Ninja III: The Domination | Janelle Monáe - Goldfinger | Janelle Monáe - Tightrope | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Basil Poledouris - Drive Montage - RoboCop | Basil Poledouris - Anvil of Crom - Conan the Barbarian | Basil Poledouris - End Credits - RoboCop
1999 was arguably the last big watershed movie year, one brimming with a crazy number of now-recognized classics that helped push cinema into the next millennium. That’s it, that’s our thesis. 1999 was crazy full of unique studio movies that would likely never see a green light in today’s franchise-driven climate: The Matrix; Office Space; Fight Club; Sixth Sense; American Pie; Being John Malkovich; Three Kings; Magnolia; Eyes Wide Shut; and more. The films are weird, personal, periodically profane, and often darkly funny. And their legacy remains. | 0:00 - Intros | 7:12 - Homecoming (Amazon) | 10:50 - The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Gibbons) | 13:45 - Sports in the age of COVID-19 | 19:30 - Dave Made A Maze (2017) | 23:10 - Fast Five (2011) | 28:30 - Thank God It’s Friday (1978) | 35:46 - 1999: the year in movies | 52:11 - The Mummy (1999) | 58:25 - Fight Club (1999) SPOILERS | 1:09:10 - Office Space (1999) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Prince and the Revolution - 1999 | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Clip from Homecoming s1e1: Mandatory | Battlebots Reboot Theme | Clip from Battlebots s3e1: It’s Robot Fighting Time! | Tandemoro - Pinball (from Dave Made A Maze) | Brain Tyler - Fast Five | Love & Kisses - Thank God It’s Friday | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Spybreak! - Propellerheads | Jerry Goldsmith & Orchestra - The Mummy | The Dust Brothers - Homework | Lunachicks - Spoilt / Joss Stone - Spoiled / Monty Python - Spam | Perez Prado and His Orchestra - Mambo No. 8 | Trey Parker and Matt Stone - Uncle Fucker | Ricky Martin - Livin’ la Vida Loca
We go off on the weirdest film franchise in Disney history with our hot take on Herbie the Love Bug! Spanning 5 movies over the course of almost 40 years, this oddball series stars a sentient VW Beetle with a giant heart who gets into scrapes, adventures and misunderstandings around the world! We originally had this discussion within a previous show (Episode 124, Bands Named After Places) but feel like now is the perfect time to revisit one of the biggest bags of crazy ever perpetrated on childhoods everywhere. Featuring Dean Jones, Ken Berry, Buddy Hackett, Don Knotts, Cloris Leachman, Harvey Korman, Michele Jones, Stefanie Powers, Keenan Wynn, Michael Keaton and Lindsey Lohan, we don’t really know what to say… but we say it anyway.

As the historic Dr. Demento radio show proved, pretty much anyone can make a novelty song. But it takes a true talent to make an entire album of funny songs that stands out, much less build a whole career on it. Join us for a Laugh & Listen Jamboree of some all time favorites in the funny music biz - from Weird Al all the way back to Spike Jones, and everything in between! It’s all the hits and plenty that you may have missed from hilarious musical acts that have given us a ton of side-splitting tunage to stick in our ear holes and amuse ourselves to death! | 0:00 - Intros | 3:38 - Rick and Morty (season 4) | 9:10 - Penny Dreadful (season 2) | 12:17 - Homeland (series finale SPOILERS) | 15:41 - Solar Opposites (Hulu, 2020) | 18:41 - Party Down | 20:41 - Mr. Plinkett’s Star Trek Picard Review (Red Letter Media) | 24:15 - Zack Snyder’s Justice League (HBO Max) | 26:40 - American Ultra (2015) | 29:12 - Shaun of the Dead (2004) | 32:34 - Isle of Dogs (2018) | 34:40 - Assassins Creed Odyssey (2018) | 37:45 - Musical Comedy Records | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Napoleon XIV - They’re Coming To Take Me Away | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Ryan Elder - Theme to Rick and Morty | Abel Korzeniowski - Penny Dreadful Theme | Sean Callery - Homeland Main Title Theme | Lunachicks - Spoilt / Joss Stone - Spoiled / Monty Python - Spam | Clip from Solar Opposites | Clip from Party Down | Clip from Mr. Plinkett’s Star Trek Picard Review | Paul Hartnoll - Apollo Ape - American Ultra Original Motion Picture Soundtrack | Monster - The Blue Wrath | Alexandre Desplat - The Hero Pack - Isle of Dogs | The Flight - Legend of the Eagle Bearer | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Allan Sherman - Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah (A Letter from Camp) | Allan Sherman - Hail to Thee, Fat Person | The Treniers - RaggMopp | Allan Sherman - RattFink | Spike Jones & His City Slickers - Cocktails for Two | Spike Jones & His City Slickers - You Always Hurt the One You Love | Tom Lehrer - Wernher Von Braun | Tom Lehrer - Who’s Next? | Tom Lehrer - We Will All Go Together When We Go | Stan Freberg - St. George & the Dragonet | Stan Freberg - Banana Boat (Day-O) | Smothers Brothers - Soap | Spinal Tap - Gimme Some Money | Spinal Tap - Bitch School | Spinal Tap - Break Like the Wind | Tim Cavanagh - I Wanna Kiss Her | Tim Cavanagh - The ABC’s of Dead Russian Leaders | Tom ‘T-Bone’ Stankus - Existential Blues | The Lonely Island - We’ll Kill U | The Lonely Island - Lazy Sunday | The Lonely Island - Diaper Money | The Lonely Island - Santana DVX (feat.

Before you could call up any comedy special on streaming, before cable TV was bloating with stand-up comics.... There was the “party album.” Comedy sketches and audio laughs on a circular slab of vinyl. This week we dive headlong into the lost art of comedy albums. We also saved a bunch of these albums that are all available on YouTube.

Harley Davidson & the Marlboro Man is a movie that probably shouldn’t exist, yet thankfully does. The 1991 actioner was supposed to be a big hit for stars Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson, the titular heroes with names that wander dangerously close to copyright infringement. The story is simple: It’s a modern western set in the near future of 1996 wherein two drifters literally rob a stagecoach to save their local saloon. There are gunfights and explosions galore, sure, but also a lot of goofy charm thanks to the strong onscreen chemistry of the two leads. And it still failed to find an audience. Both actors admit they were only in it for the money, with Johnson even saying, “If you're a fan of mindless action. If you don’t have a single brain cell in your head, this is the film for you.” Which is one of the biggest undersells in movie history, because this one is pure gold, kids. A bona fide cult classic, and another Lost VHS Classic review from the crack MagHuge team.

The Kids in the Hall is not only one of the funniest things to come out of Canada, it is also one of the funniest things we have ever watched on television. Five guys from the Great White North formed a sketch comedy troupe in the mid-80s that begat a hugely influential TV show that aired from 1988-1994 on HBO and helped kickstart the 90’s sketch show renaissance. With oddball characters placed in mundane situations, the show’s humor was always dark, strange and hilarious. But when they inserted mundane characters into the strange and absurd, that’s when they gave us some classic bits. It’s a show that definitely influenced us, and one we quote often, so we figured it was about time to give it a proper salute. Here’s to The Kids in the Hall! We’re crushing your heads…!

Welcome to the Magnificently Huge Podcast 3rd Anniversary Show! Which also happens to coincide with Star Wars Day, May 4. So, May the Something Something… We celebrate our 3 years in existence with our annual gabfest about all things Star Wars. Because why not? This time we look to the sins of the recent past and air our grievances about the final Skywalker Trilogy. What did they manage to get right? How very much did they get completely wrong? And are we the only podcast that dares to say out loud how much we actually like The Last Jedi? Questionable hot takes abound in this very special episode about Star Wars, Episode 7, 8 & 9. Buckle up for lightspeed, you porg eaters, because no force ghost can save you now. A sentence that admittedly makes no sense...but then, neither does this new trilogy. | 0:00 - Intros | 5:10 - Watchmen (HBO) | 9:20 - Transcendence (2014) | 15:18 - Quigley Down Under (1990) | 18:48 - Barry (HBO) | 23:50 - The Twilight Zone (CBS, 2019) | 27:00 - Future Man (Hulu) | 29:20 - Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Giorgio Moroder is the most influential musician you have probably never heard of. He was an early techno musician and producer before there was anything even called, “techno.” (In other words, without Giorgio Moroder, no Daft Punk.) He has written songs for David Bowie, Blondie, Janet Jackson, and a bunch more than I can put down here. He produced all of the best singles Donna Summer ever recorded, before becoming the most sought after soundtrack composer in the 70s and 80s.If you’re a fan of the films Scarface, or Top Gun, or American Gigolo, or The Neverending Story, you know what he adds to a movie is outer-worldly. So this week, we are celebrating the unmitigated genius of one of our favorite musicians, Giorgio Moroder.

Before he was Forrest Gump...Before he became America’s Dad...Tom Hanks almost killed his career in the 1980’s with a string of mediocre, low-box-office comedies where he basically played the same role repeatedly - the charming, lovable, unthreatening, wisecracking everyman. Apart from making a big splash with enormous hits like Big and Splash, there is little to distinguish most of his movies made in the Me Decade. Which got us to thinking: How did the 80’s not manage to sink Tom Hanks entirely? Because about 93% of his filmography from this era is pretty awful, if we’re being honest. Don’t get us wrong, there are a few underappreciated gems in the lot, to be sure, and we’ll mostly be touching on those. Join us for a look back at a time before he was a superstar and T. Hanks for the memories! | 0:00 - Intros | 4:45 - Watchmen (HBO, 2019) | 9:15 - Burr (Vidal, Gore) | 12:30 - Half in the Bag reviews Jack and Jill (2011) | 16:00 - Lucy (2014) | 21:35 - Star Trek Picard (2020) | 26:50 - Hunters (Amazon, 2020) | 29:50 - Absolutely Fabulous | 32:00 - Community | 36:25 - Tom Hanks | 47:15 - Bachelor Party (1984) | 53:00 - The Money Pit (1986) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Gary Bennett - My Life | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross - A Stronger, Loving World - Watchmen Vol. 03 | Clip from Jack & Jill (2011) - Al Pacino Dunkin Donuts | Eric Serra - Pleasant Drive In Paris | Jeff Russo - Star Trek Picard Main Title | Trevor Gureckis - Hunters - Main Title | Julie Driscoll and Adrian Edmondson - This Wheel’s on Fire | The 88 - At Least It Was Here | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Oingo Boingo - Bachelor Party | Stephen Bishop - The Heart is so Willing | Clip from The Money Pit (1986) | Tom Hanks and Dan Ackroyd - City of Crime | The Art of Noise - Dragnet | Clips from Dragnet (1987) | Clip from Dragnet (1967) | Clip from Punchline (1988) | BUCKWHEAT GROATS - Tom Hanks
Heading into Week 5 of Pandemic Self-Isolation and we’re all a bit stir crazy. So we decided to test a new Chrome extension called Netflix Party, which makes it possible to watch something on the streaming service simultaneously from different places. For this grand experiment, we picked a low budget 2014 Indian sci-fi kids show called Maharakshak Aryan - because reasons. Long-story-short, we heckle the hell out of this bonkers Last Airbender-meets-Power Rangers-meets-Sid & Marty Kroft romp - that you can’t see because this is an audio podcast. We’re dumb like that. But hey, nobody said socially distancing was pretty, and everything is horrible right now anyway.

If you were stuck at home sick in the dark days before cable t.v., before VCR’s, and well before the internet, you had limited options to fill the day. Sure, you could’ve read Judy Blume or Encyclopedia Brown books, but that was just like being at school. Instead, you plopped yourself down in front of your best friend, the television, and watched whatever crap happened to be on. Like, all day. This involved a few cartoons, The Price Is Right, and endless re-runs of old shows so lackluster that you won’t even see them on TV Land because nobody misses it. Yup, Gen-X is uniquely prepared to ride out a pandemic while stuck at home, enduring what most people call “boredom” - because we’ve been doing this our whole lives.

What do you get when you take an 80s Cruise the week the world falls apart during a pandemic? We’re glad you asked! Because Eric & Brian happened to enjoy an 80s Cruise vacation when the whole world got cancelled and all the toilet paper disappeared. But Chris has some burning questions about their ill-fated adventure: Which musical acts cancelled? What was the Best Show/Worst Show? How many shrimp CAN one person shovel into their own mouth while the 80s hits rain down? And is there ever enough hand sanitizer? Tune in for answers to these questions and more on this episode of The Magnificently Huge Podcast!

Let’s get this out of the way up front: The audio quality on this week’s episode sucks. Also, we didn’t get to half the things that are worth discussing on The 80’s Cruise! That said… Eric and Brian left Chris behind to go on vacation for a week. On a boat. On a bitchin 80’s-themed cruise around the Caribbean that promised a slew of popular musical acts plucked from the Me Decade for their middle-aged entertainment… most of which cancelled at the last minute because this was also the week that the coronavirus finally hit the States hard. Chris stayed home and did some panic-buying, but Eric and Brian valiantly chat at sea about the absurdity of taking an 80’s cruise while the world burns. Well, okay, really they just snark on the ups and downs of watching nostalgia acts perform on a boat. | 0:00 - Intros | 8:33 - Once On This Island (touring) | 10:54 - Doctor Sleep (2019) | 13:15 - Star Trek: Picard (2020) | 19:25 - The 80’s Cruise (part 1) - The Motels / Patty Smyth / Kool & the Gang / Berlin | Clips | CBS Special Presentation Intro | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | The Lonely Island - I’m on a Boat (feat.

Is seeing your first R-rated movie even considered a right of passage any more? Used to be you had to sneak into a theater to get nudity, profanity and some good old-fashioned ultra-violence. And then came PG-13, giving teenagers a watered-down version of what once passed for Rated R fun. But kids these days have the internet and can pretty much watch whatever they want, whenever they want. The poor bastards will never know the empty joy of circumventing an arbitrary MPAA ratings system in the pursuit of a cheap thrill. And don’t even get us started on NC-17. In short, ratings are for suckers and any system that lets Poltergeist be PG is broken beyond repair. | 0:00 - Intros | 7:26 - The End of the F**cking World (Netflix) | 9:05 - Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019) | 14:54 - New Order - Music Complete (2015) | 18:21 - Apple Earpods Pro | 21:26 - Down The Hill: The Delphi Murders (podcast) | 24:25 - Newcomers (podcast) | 26:23 - Greener Grass (2019) | 30:27 - Witch Mountain movies (Disney) | 38:20 - R rated movies | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Dr. John - Right Place Wrong Time | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Nancy Wilson - (You Don’t Know) How Glad I Am | Arthur Simonini - La Jeune Fille en Feu (Bande originale du film) | New Order - Academic | New Order - Stray Dog | Hallway Swimmers - Nightswag (featured in Greener Grass) | Johnny Mandel - Escape to Witch Mountain | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Electronic - Getting Away With It
Little Shop of Horrors! First it was a cult B-Movie! Then it was a hit off-Broadway musical! Which then became the highest-grossing cult movie musical of 1986 based on a stage show adapted from an old Roger Corman film! You don’t want to miss how we break it all down to explore why Little Shop of Horrors is so damn fun, considering it is about how everything sucks, people are inherently horrible, and we are all doomed.

Child actors - one of the cruelest ways we tortured children until we started forcing them to sew Nike shoes. These people start out cute and precocious, but get thrown to the wolves with no job skills, unrealistic expectations of the world, and weird faces that kind of look like that kid from that show. In other words, hilarious. Schadenfreude for ugly people. And a cautionary tale for parents looking to Lohan their daughters: Hollywood eats the young. | 0:00 - Intros | 4:00 - Cruel World Festival | 8:20 - Locke And Key (Netflix, 2020) | 14:35 - Freaky Friday (1976) | 21:30 - A Very Stable Genius (Rucker, Leoning - 2020) | 29:30 - Upgrading a PC | 30:40 - Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (2020) | 40:11 - The Fault in our Child Stars | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Stingray Karaoke - Oops!...

How many bands are named after places? A freakin’ crapload, that’s how many! Join the MagHuge crew as we explore the strange phenomenon of musical acts who can’t think of anything interesting to call themselves so they just pick a random place and run with it - like Chicago, Kansas, Asia, or Berlin. Think globally, name locally, that’s our motto for today. From streets and cities, to states and nations, all the way to continents, planets, galaxies and beyond, no place is safe! Plus, a bonus minisode is included wherein we try to dissect the weirdest film series ever made - Disney’s Herbie the Love Bug.

Brazil, the 1985 movie by Terry Gilliam, is a dark-comedy masterpiece that is both a spoof of Orwell’s 1984, but also a brilliant satire of mindless bureaucracy run amok. And it is one of our all-time favorite films. In the world of Brazil, if you are not part of the system, then you are part of the problem. One lonely cog in the machine, a mid-level paper pusher and daydreamer named Sam Lowry, just wants to remain anonymous - until a benign computer mix-up embroils him in a Kafka-esque nightmare to keep his free will and escape with the literal girl of his dreams. The movie’s downer ending was so misunderstood by its corporate-owned studio, Universal, that it kicked off a David and Goliath battle between Gilliam and the studio for the final cut that wound up mirroring many of the themes in the movie itself. To this day there are two versions - the original Gilliam cut and the shorter, neutered “Love Conquers All” studio cut - that present a fascinating case-study in art versus commerce. Full of astounding visuals, a great cast, and a title song you will never forget, Brazil is a groundbreaking film that has only grown in stature and influence over the decades. So watch the thing, already. | 0:00 - Intros | 6:00 - Succession (HBO) | 8:25 - They Shall Not Grow Old (2018) | 11:36 - Apple Music | 13:00 - The Gentlemen (2020) | 19:35 - Unidentified Flying Oddball (1979) | 25:15 - Sex Education (Netflix) | 28:00 - The Good Place (NBC) | 29:12 - VHYes (2019) | 32:!5 - Dark Ages: A Miracle Workers Anthology (TBS) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Geoff & Maria Muldaur - Brazil | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Nicholas Britell - Succession (Main Title Theme) | Harry Carlton & J.A.
