Second Class Cinema Episode 60: Santa With Muscles (1996)

SantaWithMusclesEpImage4

 It's the most wonderful time of the year! That is to say, Christmas is upon us. That magical time when we gather round the television, and try to view the weirdest and most absurd Christmas b-movies out there. It was Tom's pick this week, and we're sure you will exhibit zero surprise to hear that he picked the 1996 Hulk Hogan flick, Santa with Muscles.

This movie follows an obnoxiously childish millionaire, Blake Thorn (Hogan, obviously), who, after hitting his head and getting amnesia, is convinced that he is the one and only Santa Claus. Luckily, this also makes him forget his stingy, self-interested ways and he offers his help to save the local orphanage from the tyrannical Ebner Frost. Frost has been buying up all the property in town for insidious reasons and the orphanage is the most important of them all. Will Blake be able harness the power of Hulkamania to stop Frost and save Christmas? You better believe it, BROTHER.

Listen up as we discuss the decidedly NON-Christmas nature of this film, confusion between geology and archaeology, and of course- whether or not this film should be remade starring The Rock. Enjoy!

Listen up!

Trainwreck

No contemporary filmmaker has chronicled the messy human experience with the eye and ear of a comedic cultural anthropologist like JUDD APATOW. Hits as varied as those he’s directed, like Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and those he’s produced, like Superbad and Bridesmaids, are all unified by their honest, unflinching, comic look at how complicated it is to grow up in the modern world. Apatow has also built a history of helping break distinctive new comedy voices into the mainstream, from Seth Rogen to Lena Dunham, among many others. Now, in his fifth feature film as a director, Apatow again brings a portrait of an unforgettable character, and a portrayal by a breakout new comedy star, together in a film written by and starring AMY SCHUMER (TV’s Inside Amy Schumer) as a woman who lives her life without apologies, even when maybe she should apologize.
