Great content, enjoyed listening to the very first Movie Madness, which will no doubt go down in history. Just goes a long way to showing exactly what talent lies in the North East of England. I love the 1990s Night of the Living Dead I’d no idea it was only paid for copyright reasons. I felt the 90s version was always superior because the heroine was stronger. To it’s credit, the novel of Ready Player One was much much better than the film adaptation, the novel is much darker and I’d have preferred to seen THAT story – maybe we will one day, as I’ve heard a sequel is being planned, perhaps as a Netflix Mini series in the future.
Hulk Hogan was in the theatrical release of Gremlins 2, however, John Wayne was reserved for the VHS release….it was actually his son who recorded that audio in tribute to his late father. The creator of Gremlins wanted to include a bonus in the film for people who’d chosen to buy the film on VHS and also paid to see it in the cinema. But on the standard Blu Ray of the film today you just get the Hulk Hogan version. Little tidbit, there’s a kid in the corner of the foyer in that cinema scene (as the usher approaches the manager) and he’s playing an original Centipede’s Arcade Cabinet.
The ending of the Notebook was too real for me. Couldn’t handle it. Did you hear about when Netflix altered the ending of that movie? Henry you have no soul.
And yes, I saw Ready Player One eight times in the cinema.
I am well aware I have no soul – and interesting tidbits about Gremlins! Thanks for listening and looking forward to you being a guest!
That’s strange Wayne as it was John Wayne in my theatre and I saw Hulk Hogan (which then surprised me) on VHS!!
That’s interesting. It was changed around though a little bit so that’s cool.
Not as cool as ‘Clue’ though, depending on where in the US you saw the film it got a different ending! They did the same thing when I watched ‘1408’ at the cinema, the version I saw had what I later heard referred too as the ‘unreleased ending’ but I was there in Cineworld with everyone else when they screened it – so not sure if that was an accident or not…
Just listened to 003, very good discussion on comic book / superhero films. I am amazed that Hank did not mention the Phantom at all!!!
For me Blank Panther – meh a 3 at a push, Captain Marvel a good 4 and Wonder Women (facepalm) 1 maybe 2 at a push.
Gotta save some stuff in the tank for future episodes, Glenn 😉
I’ve enjoyed the podcasts so far guys, I listen while working from home, keeps me entertained! I take notes for films to look out for, especially your horror recommendations (Can’t wait to see Killer Klowns from Outer Space hahaha). There’s a horror video game that was set to be made into a movie years ago which I’ve been looking forward to but it’s never happened yet – Clock Tower. Can’t help but predict that it would turn out to be awful if it did happen though! Here’s a question for you, coming from a gaming nerd – What are your thoughts on video games that are essentially playable movies with choice-based storyline consequences? More recent horror examples that come to mind are ‘Until Dawn’ and ‘Man of Medan’. I personally love the idea of an interactive movie with multiple endings, giving each player quite a unique experience, and a lot of replay value. And also following that, do you think we will ever get an interactive experience in cinemas? Excusing that it may be technically difficult to achieve, it could be a fun idea for say, the audience to vote at key moments for how a character acts which would change the rest of the story based on the majority vote? I think it’s an interesting concept, but I understand that the idea could sort of shit all over the whole point of a what a movie is.
Keep up the great work!
Thanks so much Adam, glad you are enjoying the show and hope you dig this weeks episode!
That’s a really good question about the interactivity. Speaking for just myself I think some games have done a fairly good job of being interactive movies – but to varying degrees of padding. Until Dawn was great fun – but I got everyone killed haha. Detroit: become Human was very good at creating that interactive movie feeling and especially with great performances by some good actors in it.
I personally feel – very sadly, and especially after the pandemic – that it is only a matter of time before the Cinema is gone completely. Even if you were to go to the effort to make multiple branching scenes and so on – like Netflix has been experimenting with – by having a “vote” system you’re invariably creating dissatisfaction with some of the audience whose votes didn’t win so I don’t think that will ever come.
Great to hear from you dude!
Hey Adam, good to see that you listen to our show and enjoy. Keep spreading the word. Like the way you think. Did you ever get the chance to watch Final Destination 3 on DVD. Reason I say this due to it’s attempt at interaction. You could actually make decisions that could actually save the characters or get them killed still which is kind of like what your saying if I am right. Only other thing that comes close to interaction is the 4dx at cinemas. Though you can’t make decisions you can certainly feel like your in the movie – chair moves along with vehicles including helicopters etc and in fight sequences you will get the odd thud to the back etc. Yes you can get wet also. It’s good fun actually.
Can’t believe you never mentioned Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells from The Exorcist, a song that’s impossible to hear without thinking of the movie when you asked about songs from horror and totally went to Beetlejuice and Us instead 😂 Great podcast but I’m literally screaming (internally I’m not a weirdo) at some of the omissions such as Apocalypse Now and Wagner’s ‘Ride of the Valkyries’, Blue Velvet and Roy Orbison’s ‘In Dreams’ or American Psycho’s use of Huey Lewis and the News. You do however redeem yourselves with the love if Hudson Hawk 👌
Hahaha. You know we’re trying to keep the episodes under 2 hours long right? Haha. And yes, those are some great mentions – and you’re totally right – if you can hear Tubular Bells and not think of Exorcist, then you ain’t seen the Exorcist! I’ve heard similar things about omissions from the Comics episode. I’m glad we got you enjoying the show and inspiring you to run through your own thoughts and see how wrong we are for missing bits 😉
Just listened to my own beautiful speaking voice on 007. How telling we didn’t even realise (or maybe some of us did) that this was Episode 007 and we would speak about James Bond. This is a reason why I love collaborating on this show, why this show is so needed and so relevant in these times. It’s full of passion and true enthusiasm. As Bobby Brown once said, if you want something done, you got to do it yourself! Everyone can have a say because it’s something ingrained in your soul, something you’re passionate about. In the meantime I’ve been listening to a lot more music from films since this episode was recorded, including a lot of the aforementioned tracks in this show, compiling them into a playlist on Spotify (since they’re largely unavailable on cassette). Some of my personal favourites for you to sample after you’ve listened to this incredible – soon to be award winning – episode.
‘The Hero’ by Queen (from Flash Gordon)
‘Nobody Does It Better’ by Carly Simon (from The Spy Who Loved Me)
‘Hooked on a Feeling’ by Blue Swede (from Reservoir Dogs and much, much later, Guardians of the Galaxy)
‘Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me’ by U2 (from Batman Forever)
‘I’ll Make A Man Out of You’ by Donny Osmond (from Mulan)
‘Life is a Highway’ by Rascal Flatts (from Cars)
This could go on forever. Listen to the show…
As Johnny Sample pointed out – there is so many songs – we could have been on this episode all day my friend!
Just been listening to the Batman episode. Love the theme music. Probably the most enjoyable episode of Movie Madness I’ve recorded, so far. Very well recommended to anyone to listen in. Probably because I didn’t shut up and was a fountain of knowledge.
Are you ever not a fountain of knowledge?
Listening to the great Wrestling episode No 23; great to get the chance to talk about wrestlers and film combined – love some of these films, guilty pleasures for sure 🙂
[…] WAIT, that’s not all! Because we’re still pushing out MOVIE MADNESS podcast (nearly at our 30th episode!) we did a special episode discussing how we made this short […]

2 years later, keen anticipation of the next season of episodes, and currently half-way through my second listen through of all you have to offer on Spotify. This time, taking more notes and recording my personal highlights! (The funny moments, like Lee’s Pizza and Hank’s many Geordie impressions). Is there a place where I can watch all of your work over the years, or is some of it stored in a vault in Wayne’s room of terror? (Right beside his third testicle perhaps). Hoping you guys haven’t burned out with the podcasts, I have an itch to scratch and more Movie Madness is the creamy relief I need in my life. Here’s an idea, host movie screenings at NE Studios for fans and to attend with the Movie Madness hosts featuring podcast favourite movies, or unheard of delights (That only Hank and Wayne have seen or even heard of) with humorous commentary or a live review and discussion afterwards, sounds like much fun!
Keep the passion burning guys
P.s. I still haven’t been able to watch Killer Klowns from Outer Space
