Sound on Sight Radio #198: Hot Tub Time Machine

It’s not really a question of why anyone would choose to remember the 1980s. It’s how, since there was so much cocaine and neon the whole decade was like a Wham! album dying of a brain-damaging drug overdose. Nevertheless, as everyone who liked the 70s has started dying of liver failure, it’s apparently time for Hollywood to revisit the Greed Decade. Case in point: Hot Tub Time Machine, a film about a group of middle-aged friends who travel back in time to a hedonistic weekend in 1986. Tonight on Sound on Sight, we’ll take a trip to 1986 as well, reviewing Hot Tub Time Machine, as well as 1986’s top grossing film Top Gun, and ’86 cult classic Big Trouble in Little China.
