Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man enters the world of cinematic animation in Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman’s reality hopping Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Audiences have seen a number of versions of Spider-Man since the 2002 Sam Raimi film set the world on fire and elevated interest in the character to a whole new level. We’re on our…

Kneel Before Pod – Wonder Woman

Craig, Angus and Natalie got together to discuss the latest instalment in the DC Expanded Universe; Wonder Woman. There was a massive variation in opinions but the conversation covered the film in detail as well as gender politics in Hollywood and the importance of representation in media.

Wonder Woman

DC’s Extended Universe continues on with Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman; the origin story of the character that was introduced in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. There was a lot riding on this film. Other entries in the DC Extended Universe have had a mixed reception and there’s the extra baggage of female led superhero…

Hell or High Water

In truth, I went in to see Hell or High Water with a sense of some trepidation. This movie comes from the pen of Taylor Sheridan, who brought us Sicario last year, a film that promised much, and delivered not much more than sweeping vistas punctuated by not very much else. The question here is…

Natalie, Angus, Sandy and myself (Craig) got back together to discuss the divisive sequel and come to some form of consensus on what works and doesn’t work about it. This is the second podcast so all feedback…

Kneel Before Pod – Star Trek (2009)

Kneel Before Blog is branching out into the Podcast world and what better way to begin than talking about the J.J. Abrams Star Trek movies. On the panel for this particular discussion were me (Craig), Angus, Natalie and Sandy who all had differing opinions on this entry into the Star Trek franchise. The discussion went…

The Finest Hours

Craig Gillespie’s The Finest Hours is the fictionalised account of a true life tale involving the Coast Guard’s daring rescue of the crew of a doomed oil tanker in 1952. I’m not overly familiar with this story but that doesn’t really matter for the purposes of this film as it should hold together in how…
