March 4, 2017 2:04 pm Also, I forget if you talked about this in the podcast but is Dr. Horizon hippie scientist Marc Maron or is that just me?
March 4, 2017 1:05 pm Great interview. Hilo is my new favorite thing. It's outstanding!
January 17, 2017 9:42 am I hope to see many more Electro-based ratings in the future. I missed the boat on Green Valley originally but just caught up with comixology's holiday Image sale and Ive really enjoyed it. I think that's going to be a great hardcover when it comes out.
March 27, 2016 8:50 am @connor are you talking about Apple's iPhone/iPad basic podcast app or another platform? I primarily listen on my iPad and it has had the old old iFanboy description on all the shows. It's could be worse but I listen to a number of podcasts and this is the only one that has the show notes issue. Either way, I have enjoyed listening to the show for years and continue to look forward to the discussion each week. Thanks for keeping it gong!
March 26, 2016 5:34 pm Now that is a hot pile of garbage!!
March 26, 2016 5:32 pm Semi-related: Any way you guys could copy the show notes in the iTunes feed? It's more of a bummer on the potw podcasts but it would be great to have the notes for the individual shows when you get them on the podcast app. I have only seen it once yet (full disclosure: I fell asleep for a bit) but I think the best description I have is an (over) ambitious disappointment. The studios want to rush it so it's getting rushed whether it's good or not. The writers and actors were up against a wall and they swung for the fences. I'm majorly with you guys on the tragedy of wasting Henry Cavill on this. It took me a while to accept Man of Steel as his modern origin but I do and am mostly okay with it (biggest and probably eternal gripe is Jonathan Kent). This however pretty much makes certain that we will never get the movie I hoped for after the MoS ending at the Planet. Lois romance, first Lex face off, first Batman interaction, actual reporting and trying to help humanity...pretty much never gonna happen. I also really liked DKR Affleck Batman. Old, bitter, brooding Batman was awesome, plus I loved the suit. Wonder Woman/Dianna was also great. With great versions of Batman and Wonder Woman and a perfectly casted Superman this should have been 100x better than what it was. Save the wontons!!
April 29, 2014 11:49 am I'd also second Daytripper. I also love the Long, Cold, Dark arc from Garth Ennis' Punisher MAX run.
December 27, 2013 11:57 am Also, I LOVED Frozen. It well deserves its superlative praise!
December 27, 2013 11:54 am Hey guys, finally got around to listening good stuff! I skipped The Wolverine due to my dislike of X3 and Origins but I shall be redboxing it when it comes out. Looking forward to catching The Lone Ranger too! It looked like lots of fun but I couldn't convince anyone to go with me and that looked like a fun one to share with others. The big one that I loved this year was Derek Cianfrance's The Place Beyond The Pines. I really enjoyed Blue Valentine but this one was even better for me. I've seen it 3 or 4 time and cried each time. Best father/son/legacy movie I've seen in a long time. For me the big tv surprise this year was Arrow. I skipped the first season cause the promos looked like they were targeting high school females but after a few episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (which I did not like) I went back and gave Arrow a try...absolutely blown away! The other sleeper show I found really interesting was Rectify, really good stuff. Book-wise I haven't finished it but I picked up S. (http://www.amazon.com/S-J-Abrams/dp/0316201642/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1388162907&sr=1-1&keywords=s+jj+abrams) on a whim at Barnes and Noble and it is really interesting. I actually thought of Paul when I picked it up. I think you guys would at least get a kick out of the way the story unfolds. And that Difficult Men book sounds excellent, added on Amazon!
November 16, 2013 10:14 pm Del Toro's speech actually reminded me of The Usual Suspects. He spoke much clearer obviously, but the meter and character that he spoke with made me go back to that.
