56: Suicide Squad is painless (when you don’t see it)

Yes, welcome to an episode we could have called ‘How to talk about a movie you haven’t seen’. Because we didn’t. See it, that is. SPOILERS, yo. Yes, neither Justin or I (that is, Stephen) could really bring ourselves to see Suicide Squad AND YET we have opinions which is nothing new. What did we see? […]

55: DC vs Marvel at Comic-Con 2016 – Justice League, Wonder Woman and more!

Forget Batman v Superman, DC vs Marvel is the big showdown we want to see! Comic-Con is the battlefield and we are the field reporters! DC brought their big guns to San Diego and Marvel responded with their own salvoes. But who emerged victorious? Who came away licking their wounds? Who bothered to release their […]

54: Of women, and the busting of ghosts

Perhaps that helped? We both had a good time, and talking about the past, present and future of the X-Men on screen takes up an hour. An hour! […]

51: We are mostly civil about Civil War

The war is over! And we all won. What a result, eh? Yes, once again Marvel has raised the bar for superhero movies, and the question is, how bloody high can this bar go people? Listen as Stephen confuses pole vaulting and high jump in a ‘bar related’ metaphor that goes too far… and then […]

50: Rogue One! Dr Strange! Civil War! We’re 50!

Can you believe it? They found a Star Wars movie we’ve never seen! We know! It was behind the back of the sofa! Apparently they made it in about 1985 and never told anyone! It’s like a prequel before a prequel! Can you tell we were knocked out by the Rogue One trailer??! Yes, we’re […]
