Hindsight is Horrifying is the podcast where two allegedly grown-up (and certainly somewhat cynical) hosts mine the TV shows and movies of our youth for the "grown-up" humor we just didn't get as kids.
At least that's the idea. We also do a lot of talking about movies and TV shows in general, and sometimes we even make sense!

    A secret Johnny Depp and Christopher Walken movie? We talk "Nick of Time" on HiH

    A secret Johnny Depp and Christopher Walken movie? We talk "Nick of Time" on HiH

    Darth was today years old when she discovered that Johnny Depp and Christopher Walken star in more than one movie together. In one of those movies, Nick of Time, Mr. Smith (Walken) threatens to murder Gene Watson’s (Johnny Depp) little girl unless Watson pulls the trigger on Governor Eleanor Grant during a public speech in a downtown L.A. hotel.
    And we have a movie!
    This film has everything going for it on paper. You have a handsome leading man racing against the clock. You have Christopher Walken literally stalking that leading man every step of the way on his mission to kill a governor so liberal that everyone and their mom (including her own husband and the guys at the hotel bar) want her dead. Johnny’s only allies are the veteran shoeshine and every single other hotel employee. In Nick of Time, there are countless build-ups with zero follow-through, and despite the stakes and talent that fill this movie to busting, it presents like a TV movie that could have used a few extra commercial breaks.
    Darth and Jason enjoyed it nonetheless. But did 2-D Adam Brown have an opinion? More importantly, did Johnny off the governor?? Tune in to find out!

    Kelsey Grammer vs the United States Navy! It's "Down Periscope" on HiH!

    Kelsey Grammer vs the United States Navy! It's "Down Periscope" on HiH!

    In this schlocky 90s comedy, Lt. Cmdr. Tom Dodge and his tattooed dick are facing a stacked deck.
    Due to his decorative penis and quirky methods of command, Dodge has been passed over for promotion by the Navy Selection Committee year after year. But when Rip Torn decides to pull rank out of pure nepotism for his own errant son (which no one seems to notice or care about), Dodge finally gets a shot at captaining his very own recommissioned, yet utterly decrepit, submarine.
    It’s up to Dodge and his colorful crew of misfit seamen, including a shockingly female Diving Officer, to navigate the USS Stingray through a War Games exercise that will determine his fate in the U.S. Navy. Does Dodge win the war games and Jim Carrey’s woman amidst self-inflicted chaos and loony piracy on the high seas? We’re not sure we even care, but in this episode of HIH, we discuss Down Periscope.

    The 80s were great! Except for this movie. It's Jumpin' Jack Flash on HiH!

    The 80s were great! Except for this movie. It's Jumpin' Jack Flash on HiH!

    When you’re an under cover operative in a tough spot, who do you reach out to for help? James Bond? Ethan Hunt? Elon Musk? NOPE. In Penny Marshall’s directorial debut, it’s Whoopi Goldberg to the rescue for a British spy who just wants to get home.
    Meet Terry Doolittle (Goldberg), professional smartass and computer genius, also known as a bank chat specialist. Terry stumbles into the world of espionage when English spy, code name Jumpin’ Jack Flash, reaches out to her with cryptic communications over her faulty bank computer. Jack puts Terry’s feeble feminine brain to the test with coded messages alluding to the Rolling Stones; Terry does some dancing, cracks the code, acquires a frying pan, and illicit undercover activities commence.
    Jumpin’ Jack Flash is a Whoopi Goldberg vehicle that goes off road with ridiculous disguises, villainous treachery, & plenty of wise cracks. The British are coming, and Jim Belushi is armed with a tow truck and truth serum. But will Whoopi win the day and the middle-aged man? Smack your malfunctioning monitor and find out in this slapstick 80s romp.

    Leo DiCaprio and the Quasi-Commie Hellhole! It's "The Beach" (2000)!

    Leo DiCaprio and the Quasi-Commie Hellhole! It's "The Beach" (2000)!

    What would you do for a Klondike bar? Would you bark like a dog?
    What would you do to maintain the secret of Nirvana? Would you murder a shark-bitten Swede? Leo DiCaprio sure would!
    In Danny Boyle’s 2000 film The Beach, some intrepid travelers seek a hidden island paradise for non-parasites in Thailand, a country where marijuana was recently legalized! After their deeply disturbed fellow traveler, Daffy, commits suicide on the Khao San Road, Richard discovers a map bequeathed to him by Daffy that leads to a forbidden beach so perfect, it was formerly thought of as nothing more than an urban myth.
    Richard’s bizarre journey includes a French couple, Etienne and Francoise, who like to have loud sex. The threesome’s difficult travels pay off when they finally arrive at The Beach, but this fairy tale land-turned coveted reality conceals a dark truth. 
    The Beach is occupied by a group of hippie psychos who viciously guard their seaside commune, which also happens to be equipped with a manipulative ice queen and dangerous drug farmers who favor a Thai variation of Russian Roulette.
    There is almost too much to unpack when it comes to The Beach. Suffice it to say that, in this movie adapted from Alex Garland’s far superior debut novel, we discover that when paradise comes at too steep a price, it’s not the journey or the destination so much as the escape.
    Join Darth, Jason, and Adam for a dive into The Beach.

    Burt Reynolds is the Sexiest Cop in Atlanta! In 1981. Sharky's Machine!

    Burt Reynolds is the Sexiest Cop in Atlanta! In 1981. Sharky's Machine!

    There’s this call girl. She’s got a bad rap, see? She’s stuck with a murderous john who owns all the hookers in Atlanta; he puts her up in a nice penthouse with fabulous clothes and all the dance classes she could ask for. It’s up to a ruggedly handsome vice cop to rescue her and give her the run-down home of her dreams in a ghetto part of the city so they can live happily ever after next to a playground of noisy ass kids. This dream house may not have a bed with a frame, but it has a lovely window seat with a rose carving, perfect for peeping on the local children at play.
    Now that we think about it, Sharky’s Machine may be the literal opposite story of Pretty Woman. This rendition of Dirty Harry Goes to Atlanta is a drama-packed, vice-ridden tale of Burt Reynolds (quasi-legally) stalking and sometimes slapping a hooker with whom he falls in love from afar. Don’t worry, he’s still focused on cleaning up the city streets. He might lose a few fingers in the process, but good ol’ Sharky will see to it that we ATLiens can enjoy our city without the worry of those awful out-of-staters.
    Join Darth, Adam, and Jason for the mustache ride that is Sharky’s Machine.

    Bill Murray is in the Army now! It's "Stripes" (1981)!

    Bill Murray is in the Army now! It's "Stripes" (1981)!

    Oh, my GOD, Mr. Cotter, I want YOU!
    What if Cheech and Chong joined the army? We’ll never know for sure, but Stripes gives us a close enough idea when Bill Murray talks Harold Ramis into becoming a grunt in this 80s comedy. John and Russell join the army, mud-wrestling shenanigans ensue, and our would-be heroes get the girls, but can they protect America’s newest super-weapon/shaggin’ wagon? Probably not, but it hardly matters when your main goal in life is to be the sharpest loofah in your platoon ever to graduate basic training. 
    Sound off for Stripes!

An Amusing Romp

An amusing romp through Millennials' childhood classic films, with plenty of snark along the way. If you're up for a laugh, this is always good for one.

I wanna go back...

And do it all over, but I can’t go back, I know...

If you love to reminisce about classic movies, then your Hindsight May Be Horrifying too…. From Shakespeare to Shivers…Darth Jader and Jason know how to pick em’. No topic is off limits as they dissect your favorite oldie but goody. Before you listen and glimpse the twisted minds of these two (and their guests) be sure to alert your therapist…

Young Adam loves this show!

I have loved being a guest on this show! Nothing beats drinking a cold one and talking about a movie I love. It’s perfect for a movie nerd like me! You never know where the conversation is going to go with the goofy tangents but the film is also discussed from beginning to end since it is played in the studio. I love trying to impersonate a character from the movie whether it’s Pennywise the clown or Arnold Schwarzenegger. My favorite one was the Jingle All the Way episode for Christmas because my girlfriend joined as a guest and all 4 of us had so much to say about it. I look forward to the upcoming all Adam episode and doing some more crazy movies in the future. I also look forward to choosing some messed up horror flicks to get under Darth Jader’s skin.
