MMM Commentary: MMM Vanity Project 3 – The Hunt for Red October
MMM takes you under the thermocline for Hunt For Red October – Geoff’s project de jour.
By 1990 Tom Clancy novels were selling by the truckload and millions of fans awaited each one.
Geoff was not one of those people…but he became one after this film. Since MMM began the card playing one has pestered us to tackle this primal entry in the techno-thriller subgenre ( also called the Sean Connery submarine one) Join us as Geoff finally gets his wish.
We reveal who was meant to play Ramius , why the cast kept getting seasick on dry land and David and Geoff get into it over the best way to knock on a submarine. If you like your films full of translation conventions, multicoloured subs, future Presidents and lots of beets, this is the commentary for you. MMM presents Hunt For Red October – join us someplace deep!
Someplace deep! (P.S. Contains gratuitous Nanny, Next Gen and Moriarty cameos)
And be back next time for the next (and last!) Vanity Project… what will it be?
