You Ain't Heard Nothing Yet: Episode 6

Today's episode: "With a Great Podcast Comes Great Responsibility"



For this episode of YAHNY, we are joined by Vincent from The Robots Pajamas - nerd blogger extraordinaire. Check him out for a variety of nerdy things, including the latest toy news, "nerd rage," and a number of cosplay pics (which may or may not be healthy). But more pointedly, he's a fellow film enthusiast AND he's a got a killer podcast - The Robots Pajama Party.

To take advantage of Vincent's specialized skill set of movie knowledge, our topic du jour is SUPERHERO MOVIES. As a genre (or maybe even sub-genre), superhero movies seem to be very nearly everywhere these days. From remakes of Superman and Spiderman, to the conclusion of The Nolan's Batman series and whatever you'd like to call the collective of Avengers' movies - the people are in love with these (often mutated or alien) do-gooders. And Hollywood loves the amount of money these movies make.

 Just an approximation

We are going to try to take a step back and discuss this genre which cannot really be ignored. What makes for a good/ bad superhero movie? Can superhero movies be considered "art" (for better or worse)? Why do superhero movies mainly come out of America? All these topics and more! Plus, Agust is up to his old tricks again. Hope you enjoy! And one more thing:

Haven't any of you read the Kick-a$$ graphic novel? The movie completely diverges at the end, where the graphic novel has a crappy ending, and retains the same feeling throughout the book. The movie sucked! Horrible translation.

And by "crappy" I mean it was a very unhappy ending, not bad. The graphic novel was very well done.

Sorry, I don't read picture books.

I've completely forgotten almost everything we talked about. Perhaps I should listen to my annoying droning voice to jog my memory.

Vincent said...

Oh and I highly recommend putting a direct download link in your posts of the podcast as well as a link to the RSS feed. People demand that for my show.

Vincent said...

Crap! I was wrong. Frank Miller wrote the scripts for Robocop 2 and 3, not robocop 1. Where's Herman when I need him?!

Reido Bandito said...

Yikes. Well it's not like we knew the difference.
