BONUS EPISODE- The Dark Knight Rises

We Batarang a dead horse with yet another analysis of the most talked about movie of the summer. We watched 12 hours of vintage Batman gearing up for it, so how did The Dark Knight Rises strike us? Better or worse than Ghost Dad? You’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out. Download the link below to find out, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes! And be sure to follow us on Twitter! And if you haven’t seen TDKR yet, skip this episode as it is full of SPOILERS.

Check back tomorrow, we’ll have our regularly scheduled episode available, our 50th episode will be about the summer movie classic Ernest Goes to Camp!

Episode 48- Batman in Film part 2

With The Dark Knight Rises opening tomorrow, we’re back to talk more about Batman’s cinematic career, starting with Batman: The Mask of the Phantasm, the 1993 adaptation of the animated series. From there we let Joel Schumacher be our guide through the (now suddenly) brightly neon-infused streets of Gotham City in Batman Forever and Batman & Robin. Yes, we actually re-watched Batman & Robin. You owe us audience!!! I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to yell… it’s just, I just never thought I’d watch that movie again… We also briefly chat about our expectations for TDKR, and our impressions of the two previous Nolan films.

No Spoilers for TDKR, none of us have seen it or read any reviews, though we do discuss some vague rumours about cameos that surfaced about a year ago. We do spoil the ending for Mask of the Phantasm, but to be fair, so did this toy.

Episode 47- Batman in Film part 1

In anticipation of The Dark Knight Rises, we ventured to watch Batman’s entire filmography between the years of 1943 and 1997, and then record our thoughts in podcast form, you know, for future generations. In part 1 of a 2-part podcast we discuss Batman’s inauspicious 1943 cinematic debut, Adam West and Burt Ward’s campy/homoerotic/campy/very homoerotic take in 1966’s adaptation of the Batman TV show, then we talk Burton. Tim Burton. Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) were epic in our youth, but how do they hold up now?

This week’s special guest villain is the delightful Johnnie Walker!

Episode 47- Batman in Film part 1

Apologies for the audio clipping in the episode. It does get a bit better about halfway through. I’m going to blame… The Joker! Or  maybe I made a mistake… Or maybe Thurston Moore produced this week’s episode… we’ll never know.

Next week we’ll be back with more Bat-goodness, tackling Batman: Mask of the PhantasmBatman Forever, and (gasp) Batman & Robin.
