Episode 107: The Story of Batman

The Story of Batman

Liam Neeson is back, and he’s got a gun. And he’s taking ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’. Apparently some filmmakers feel like that’s enough for a good film. Joe tends to agree but TJ feels a little differently. Together, they explore why. Also in discussion, Marvel has released plot details for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’, CGI animated footage of Popeye, a ‘Supergirl’ TV series coming soon, and the latest upcoming films and trailers.

    Disney has released a new official plot synopsis for Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

  • CGI Animated ‘Popeye’ Test Footage

    Popeye was one of my mainstay cartoons growing up. It was funny and unique and I enjoyed it immensely. Looking back on it, it’s pretty cheesy and probably not really worth watching. But it still holds a special place in my heart.

    In addition to fighting evil, Superman has a burning romance with Lois Lane in both his identities.

  • A Few Upcoming Films

    I enjoy trailers before films. It’s one of my favorite parts of the experience. Sometimes that experience lets me down, sometimes not. I would call my trailer experience tonight a little better than I was expecting.

  • A Walk Among the Tombstones — Rotten Tomatoes

    A Walk Among the Tombstones doesn't entirely transcend its genre clichés, but it does offer Liam Neeson one of his more compelling roles in recent memory, and that's often enough.
