This week, Christopher Nolan demonstrates that you can take a comic book character seriously: with some big Hollywood names, a big budget, and an emphasis on visual effects (as opposed to Computer Generated Imagery). Join us as we watch 2005’s Batman Begins: the movie that arguably paved the way for modern super hero movies.
Bonus Episode Time! To welcome the film onto Netflix (starting June 26th) and to attempt to give it all the praise it deserves, we watch Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse. This movie blows away all recent animated and superhero films alike. It drips originality and brims with jokes, action, and lovable characters. The creators and animators swing for the fences and succeed throughout. Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman.
This week, we watch the film that popularized the Guy Fawkes mask and gave birth to the symbol of the hacking organization, Anonymous. This film melds noir, science-fiction, fantasy, post-apocalyptic, and super-hero genres together in a bloody tale of power and fear. V for Vendetta (2005), directed by James McTeigue.
This week, we give you a bonus episode! Deadpool is #210 on the IMDB list of the best films of all time, so we took a trip to the theaters to see how they handled the followup. Ryan Reynolds returns as the merc with a mouth, as this sequel gives us more violence, more CG battles, more pop culture references, more catch phrases, more tiny limbs...if the original Deadpool film was an appropriately sized bag of your favorite candies, Deadpool 2 is a five gallon bucket filled with all the halloween leftovers. And who's inner child is going to say no to that? Deadpool 2, directed by David Leitch.
This week, we give you a bonus episode! Since Captain America: Civil War episode lined up so perfectly to the same week as the opening of the new Avengers movie, we decided we'd all go to the theater and see what all the fuss is about. VERY SPOILER FILLED EPISODE. See this awesome movie and listen to our take on it. Avengers: Infinity War (2018), directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo.
This week, we watch the comic book movie that blew up the box office. The Hard-R, ultra-violent comedy was a passion project that almost didn't get made, which not only restarted Ryan Reynolds career, but also is bound to start an R-rated comic book movie surge. Deadpool (2016), directed by Tim Miller.
This Week, we watch the ground breaking, fully green-screened, ultra-violent comic book adaptation that boasts one of the most stacked casts of all time - Sin City (2005). Directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez.
