August is over but it contained a wealth of trailers and news. The conversation covers fan entitlement/gatekeeping, unnecessary revivals and Snyder cuts, yes plural.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse provided a seemingly endless list of topics to discuss and we attempted to discuss some of them. The conversation covers breathtaking animation, parental relationships and the canon!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 closes out James Gunn’s trilogy and Kneel Before Pod is here to discuss it. The conversation covers exposition, subjective comedy and characters changing between films.
After months of adventuring, a brave party returns from seeing Honor Among Thieves to discuss the film – but with a twist, as their own dungeon adventure is captured here: classes show off their skills, D20s are rolled and one party member reveals his willingness to sell his soul for early access and swag, all on the way to defeating the most-heinous of all villains in the realms of storytelling (in the Dungeon Master’s opinion at least).
On their way to victory, they also discuss story that has heart, a potentially-successful application of current gender politics and their collective delight at finding a good fantasy film among the wilderness of today’s offerings – oh, and a film adaptation of a game that actually works…? Madness!
July is behind us and so are all the trailers and announcements that came with it but we are here to round them up as always. The conversation covers the future of comic book movies, the next Barbenheimer and indie darlings selling out.
June is over and now as always, it contained many trailers and news items for us to discuss. The conversation covers poorly executed action movies, corporate stories and the lack of originality.
Secret Invasion is underway on Disney+ so why not listen to us talk about the last time it was adapted in the animated Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. The conversation covers the rules of shapeshifting, detecting imposters and the mechanics of Super-Skrulls.
The Flash completed its nine-season run and Kneel Before Pod had to get the show out of its system by discussing it. The conversation covers meandering plotting, using guest stars and Cecile’s commuting troubles.
The Flash is finally out in cinemas but it isn’t the first time the comic book “Flashpoint” story has been adapted. The first was a 2013 animated movie called Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox and the second was an episode of The Flash TV show titled “Flashpoint”. We look back on these two previous attempts to adapt this story and speculate about the film. Did we get it right? Listen and find out.
Another month has gone by containing a lot of news and trailers for us to discuss. The conversation covers petty tough guys, pointless legacy sequels and the return of the high-profile erotic thriller.
