Birthed out of the brutal chrysalis of the Internet, the totally hip and cool Major Grunge decided he would create a podcast so people could allow their ears the pleasure of his rants and raves even when he isn't live. The show explores Major's curiosities, especially in the domain of the Humanities, with occasional guests and discussions on their interests and passions. A refreshing dash of self-improvement is sprinkled in like a dash of Queso fresco on a warm Summer night in the Mediterran ...

Wow. What a film. There really must have been something going on in 1999, because so many great films were released that year. Me and Jai touched on so many aspects that we loved including the cinematography, directing, and every stitch of the fashion. And we talked about that neon swimsuit. Off-topic rants include: Val Kilmer, the casting process,…

What a wild ride this movie was! I love the music/record industry storylines of 90s movies. This one was sooo ridiculous and hilarious and made me love Brendan Fraser even more than I already do. Me and Jules went a bit off the rails with our music biz talk and basically pointing out how everything isn't as easy as getting your single on the radio …
 
Yes, we're finally chatting the sequel to Trainspotting (1996) for our 'Forward Flash' episode! We had such a blast talking this film, it's probably one of the only sequels that actually holds up to the original and is an utter delight. Me and Jai point out how the characters changed in 20 years and the many nods to the original. The soundtrack, un…
 
Another disturbing film that we both went into not knowing anything about. And we sorta wish it stayed that way. It was through this dark journey we learned all about the underground world of sn*ff films. I basically decided to watch this because of Nicolas Cage and Joaquin Phoenix. Me and Mikey talk about the darkness of 90s film themes, the fact …
 
For some reason about a month ago I decided to watch Twilight and inadvertently watched the whole saga. Now I knew I was definitely late to the game and I wanted to gab about it with my two friends Jules and Charles. This quickly devolved into a pretty unhinged long convo all about our problems with Bella's character, the endless problematic things…
 
No, not that kind of dick. We're talking the Watergate centered comedy from the glorious film year of 1999. This is my first time watching and I'm so glad Charles recommended it for the episode. We didn't know much of the real story but would like to believe that two teenage girls really did break open the case. Me and Charles got into the MANY fas…
 
Another underrated 90s gem! I remember seeing this film ages ago and watching it again now was even better. Talk about a hilarious story with a great theme and an incredible cast! Me and Mikey talked about our love of Clea Duvall and Natasha Lyonne and how they are responsible for some of the most groundbreaking films of the era. We get into the st…
 
I've got my friend Suzy back along with her husband Ben to talk the 1997 David Fincher film, The Game. We've been talking about doing this episode for a while so I was extra curious to see this film for the first time being a Fincher fan. This film really offers up more questions than answers. During our discussion we came up with ideas for a serie…
 
I flew into a late 90s flurry when I saw that episodes of Popular were on Youtube. From the mind of Ryan Murphy in 1999 this is not your typical show about high school. Both me and Mikey are day 1 fans and we talk our history with the show, the evolution of Ryan Murphy, and why Mary Cherry is one of the best tv characters ever. I hope more people d…
 
This was an interesting one to review. It's been on my list for a while and I think I literally changed my views on it halfway through. For both me and Jai hadn't seen it in a while so there we more things we didn't notice before. We get into the 'fiction' but not really of the story, the weirdness of the whole house, and question what scenes truly…
 
I'm an oldie at heart. It seems like I always want to have been born in an earlier decade. There just had to be a series created for films before 1990. For the first 'Back Track' episode we're talking Rebel Without a Cause from 1955. Starring James Dean, Natalie Wood, and Sal Mineo this is one of my favorites from the classic Hollywood era. Me and …
 
We waded through the murky waters of the straight to DVD rack to bring you two sequels you maybe never knew about or just plain avoided. Me and Mikey decided that we would look at these films from a different perspective and ask ourselves, Did these need to be made, and were they really all that bad? Spoiler alert: they sorta were but we had fun! -…
 
Growing up one of my all time favorite shows was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. We called it "appointment television". I was spending time queuing up my VCR so I could record each episode. I'm joined by my childhood friends Mikey and Charles who are also super fans. We decided to space out our chats about the seasons since we wanted to give it a proper …
 
Watching this movie was like cuddling up with a warm blanket. It's one of me and Jules' childhood faves and it was like going back in time seeing this again. There were so many adult takes we had like how this could never work as a storyline now, the pipeline from summer camp to cults, how this 90s kids fashion is literally on point, and how Christ…
 
It's hard to even put into words the range of emotions that came over me watching this story and delving into this incredible true story. While based on a true story of the Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 about a soccer team that crashed in the Andes mountains in 1972, the film was equally as compelling. I couldn't even slightly imagine what this mu…
 
We're going full on virus infection mode for the Forward Flash episode this month. It was revealed in a previous episode that I have never seen the 2002 film 28 Days Later and Charles and Jai were horrified. So, I finally saw it and I loved it. Danny Boyle is just amazing and we found out so much behind the scenes and technical aspects to shooting …
 
Join us as we celebrate the 2 year anniversary of the podcast! I somehow managed to get both Jai and Jules to indulge me and watch HOURS of coverage of the 96 VMAs for this episode. We basically scream about the amount of cool things happening in music at the time, hilarious interviews, fashion moments, and how the Smashing Pumpkins literally owned…
 
We are finally talking one of my favorite films of the 90s, The Basketball Diaries. Based on the novel by Jim Carroll (which is amazing btw) and starring Leonardo DiCaprio in one of his best early performances. There are so many aspects that I love: the location, cinematography, and the voice overs blended into the story. (Movie discussion starts a…
 
Well, we're here finally reviewing Showgirls. Some would say it's one of the worst films of the 90s. Up until now I had only seen bits and pieces. I'm here to report that almost 30 years later I can say that I've seen Showgirls. Here we go... Me and Mikey break down the many reasons why this swept the Razzies that year and ponder what this film cou…
 
Groovy! For our Forward Flash we're going back yet again to the NY art world of the 60s. Enter in Edie Sedgwick and Andy Warhol's 'The Factory'. This is one of my favorite episodes yet because there is so much mystery and intrigue surrounding the life of Edie Sedgwick. Her influence, style, and just overall vibe is something truly to behold. Sienna…
 
This film is one of my favorite Indies of the 90s. I'm honestly shocked when anyone has even heard of it. I probably showed this to all my friends when I rented it back in '98. Starring Robin Tunney (Sarah from The Craft, Deb from Empire Records, duh!) Me and Charles talk the amazing soundtrack, the story logistics, and the actresses who turned dow…
 
Yes, I've got another new co-host for this episode! Join me and my friend Suzy as we talk the romantic comedy and all around sweet film, Benny & Joon (1993). There are so many aspects of this film that we both hold dear to our childhood hearts. Again, I'm swooning over Johnny Depp being Buster Keaton, the incredible amounts of food talk, how I want…
 
All three of us were so excited to do this episode. Mainly it's me realizing that the Jagged Little Pill album changed my life is so many ways. Throughout our chat we found more reasons to love Alanis. We cover the nostalgia of it all talking radio rock, the seedy things going on behind the scenes, and why Alanis herself didn't love this portrayal.…
 
Surprise! It's a New Years movie episode. I had never seen Mermaids but heard about the performances by Winona Ryder and the debut of Christina Ricci. Charles suggested it and here we are. This is a delight of a film and I can't believe more people don't talk about it. Charles talks his deep connection with the film, we get into how the fashion thr…
 
Money. Success. Fame. Glamour. We're back in the NY club scene about a decade later with the Party Monster story. While we mostly stay on the film track we get detailed about the many documentaries about the true story that more than inspired this tale. There are so many fashion standouts that could be it's own episode. The portrayal of Michael Ali…
 
Welcome to the world of disco, drugs, and glamour! We're talking the apparent box office bomb, 54 which has become one of my comfort films. Me and Mikey couldn't wait to talk about the vibe of this production and finally we have the Director's Cut that left out so many plot points from the 1998 version. Our main talking points are the MUSIC, of cou…
 
I've always been curious about the life of Brittany Murphy. It just so happens that this is one of the first documentaries I've seen that tries to answer the questions we all have. What Happened, Brittany Murphy? All three of us talk what we know about her films, discuss her extensive filmography and the subsequent decline when she met her future h…
 
It's another wild ride with a dark comedy about dysfunctional families. This one happens to be a sleeper with an incredible cast that delivers throughout. I'm in love with Viv who is the living the embodiment of Daria Morgendorffer. Me and Mikey talk our favorite scenes, fashion moments, and why we never wanted this film to end. Off topic rants inc…
 
Surprise! Since it's a holiday weekend Charles suggested we review a fucked up family on screen. Well, I definitely never expected we would reach quote possibly the most screwed up Thanksgiving film that can ever exist. Starring indie Queen Parker Posey, Tori Spelling, and Freddie Prinze, Jr?! Say no more. Directed by Mark Waters who later went on …
 
Witness! God, I love this movie so much. Monster trucks, Tom Hardy, that is all. Why this film didn't win all the awards is beyond me and we talk all about it. Me and Charles go ALL in about how the behind the scenes deserves its own film, the minimal script but impactful story, and why George Miller is living on another planet and we want in. Off …
 
I love a good sci-fi dystopian film. It's always spooky season when we're talking about genetic manipulation. Both me and Mikey have never seen this and WOW what a striking film. Visually it's just out of this world and we get into a lot of behind the scenes, architecture, minimalist fashion, and intricate story. Off but also On topic rants include…
 
A preview of what we're doing now over on Patreon! We're finally HERE! It's time to talk 'My So Called Life' one of my personal favorite TV shows of all time. There is so much to get into and just starting with Pilot we learn so much and try to dissect it all. In the series premiere we meet Angela Chase, an extremely introspective 15 year old who i…
 
What a film to talk about when I've got a new guest host for the pod! Join me and my buddy Pete as we talk the totally weird but awesome, Cool World (1992) directed by Ralph Bakshi. As you could probably tell, this was originally slated for a 'rated R' release and the script went through multiple rewrites to garner that PG-13 rating. We get into al…
 
It's an unwritten law that you have to talk about Tim Burton during October. Just as I planned it on this Halloween we simply HAD to talk about Sleepy Hollow. Even more surprising Charles had never seen it so his first time viewer perspective was welcome. I on the other had took this as yet another opportunity to talk about Johnny Depp. We get into…
 
Again, another film I had no idea existed until literally WEEKS ago. Both me and Charles give our first time fresh high level thoughts about Cherry Falls that literally gets better with each watch. Of course who doesn't want to see a slasher film in the mountains of Virginia where virgins are the target. I mean... In this episode we talk the SUPER …
 
What a new and inventive film concept in a contemporary world that seems riddled with remakes. This one for me was cinematography heavy since I was being such a nerd about it. There were so many different layers to this film and it was the direction, music, and the story that brought it together. Me, Jules, and Jai talk our fav creepiest "It" encou…
 
October is here and we're ready for the erotic tales of vampires: Winona Ryder, Keanu Reeves, and the diva of all, Dracula! We talk the Coppola epic tale based on the Bram Stoker novel. Most of our talk revolves around the costuming (which is out of this WORLD), the many versions of Dracula and vampires in film and tv that we love, and so much behi…
 
It's October baby and it's time for the scaries! For the first selection this month we're talking Ginger Snaps! I had to get Mikey on the pod since he's my resident 'scary movie' icon. Starting with this film which at first glance may be considered a werewolf story, but it's SO much more. This Canadian cult film is centered around becoming a woman …
 
There are so many twists and turns that it will give you whiplash in the best way. While most wrote off Wild Things in the 90s as 'that movie with the threesome", it's so much more. Me and Charles get into the Florida of it all, this neo-noir structure, and try to break down the mystery and allure of Denise Richards. Off topics rants include: chipm…
