Lots and lots of movies have soundtracks. Some are classics. Some are bad. But the majority fall somewhere in between. This podcast is going to take a look at all of them (or, as many as I can). Every week I'll be covering a different movie that had an original motion picture soundtrack, and then digging into the album. One part film discussion, one part music discussion, the Soundtracker podcast is here to help you navigate the wide world of movies and music. In each episode, myself and a guest discuss the movie and its soundtrack, rate each one, give you our picks for the best songs on the soundtrack, and suggest additional recommendations for what to watch or listen to in relation to whatever we're covering. So join me, as I look back at an era that's largely a thing of the past, and maybe you'll find a new favorite film or song along the way. New episodes every Friday.

This week, I'm joined by Julian Titus (@julian_titus) of the Nerds Without Pants podcast (@NWPcast) to talk about THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE. I managed to crank out this episode with very obvious allergies, so please excuse how I sound in this one. In this episode, we discuss the way the movie came to be as dark as it ended up being, the trauma of seeing Optimus Prime die at age 6, Stan Bush and more. You've got the touch, and you can use that touch to press play on the episode.

Episode 44: Cool as Ice (with Stuart Wellington)
Today I'm joined by bar owner, comedian and podcaster Stuart Wellington (@flophousecat on Twitter and IG) of The Flop House podcast, and we're talking about Vanilla Ice's attempt at movie stardom, COOL AS ICE. In this episode we talk about how this movie deserves a cult following, what an incredible creep Johnny is, the extremely 1991 styles and fashions present in the movie, death metal, and the shockingly not-as-bad-as-we'd-feared soundtrack. So drop that zero and get with the hero. And then listen to this episode with the hero. Or something. Look, just check it out ok?

Episode 42: Hackers (with Morgan Kleinschmidt)
Today I'm joined by Morgan Kleinschmidt (@ComradeLuanne) to talk about the very fun, very 90s cyber-thriller HACKERS, which features a soundtrack with a great mix of 90s electronica. In this episode we talk about how everyone looks too old to be the characters they play, how Fisher Stevens absolutely understood the assignment, our admittedly small knowledge of hacker culture, and the soundtrack. So, "hack the planet!"*

Episode 41: Godzilla '98 (with Jeff May)
Today I'm joined by comedian, podcaster, and #1 Joey Deluxe Fan Jeff May (@heytherejeffro on Twitter and IG) to talk about GODZILLA '98. In this episode we talk about what went wrong with the movie, the few things it did right, Matthew Broderick's hat, the extremely 1998 soundtrack and how much it whips ass, how unironically good the Puff Daddy song still is, and how the Godzilla Remix of Brain Stew is the only version that matters. So "come with us" (eh, eh?) and reminiscence on one of the best soundtracks of the 90s.
