Episode 11: The Great Batsby & The Spectacular Spider-Bartlet

Episode 11: The Great Batsby & The Spectacular Spider-Bartlet

It’s a comic booky-y kind of summer, and our excited little butts go into excited little seats for two movies that leave us feeling not quite as excited as we started. It’s Jet Wolf & Ultrace versus The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises, with some bonus swearing at NBC!

  • We first tackle The Amazing Spider-Man, wrestling it to the ground and beating it with rocks. Mike is a professional adult and was nearly brought to tears, this movie upset him so. He works through some issues (by which I mean he doesn’t really work through anything at all) and is only too happy to tell you exactly why he hates everything about this movie. Except for Gwen Stacy. And Uncle Ben. And Aunt May. Okay, so it’s sort of only Spider-Man we hate, but you have to admit that’s a bit of a problem for a film called Spider-Man. [Beware Spoilers]

  • The Dark Knight Rises is also put against the post and offered a final cigarette. Two hours and forty minutes? Really, Christopher Nolan? Really? [Beware Spoilers]
    [00:33:22 – 00:57:55]
  • It’s Olympic time, and Nikki could not possibly be more excited. Unless, of course, the property went into the hands of absolutely anybody not NBC. We talk about the ridiculous idea that in 2012 we still can’t see things live, and old wounds are poked with dirty sticks. Seriously, just fuck everything about Jerry Seinfeld.
    [00:58:02 – 01:09:57]
  • The Final Round, where we manage to have the most difficult question ever alongside the easiest.

Episode 6b: Avengers Special, #1 Collector’s Edition!

Episode 6b: Avengers Special, #1 Collector's Edition!

When you’re comic book enthusiasts who’ve been up all day and go to the midnight release of a movie as lusted after as The Avengers, what else can you do but go home right after and podcast about it at 4 in the morning? I mean, that’s the natural human reaction. It’s in our DNA. You can’t change DNA.

  • This is Avengers, the whole Avengers, and nothing but Avengers. Ultrace thought it could’ve been Avengerier and Jet Wolf basically complains for half an hour then changes her mind about everything but maybe not. It was a confusing time. Sprinkled liberally with enthusiasm for awesome things.

Perhaps needless to say, this podcast is spoiler-heavy. Don’t listen unless you’ve seen the movie already as we are going to ruin the hell out of it for you.
