April 5, 2014 5:39 pm Loved this movie. Great from beginning to end. I'm a big fan of Brubaker's Cap & Winter Soldier storyline and they did a great job with this film. Liked the after credits shot with Bucky at the Smithsonian. For a moment I thought they were going to have a kid spot him and that he would turn to the camera (and the kid) and go "shhh" like Steve had done earlier in the movie.
December 24, 2013 8:17 am Still listening but through the movie portion and am enjoying the podcast very much. Conor, we are usually on the same page moviewise but mark me down as one of the ones who did not enjoy The Lone Ranger. Saw they were definitely trying for the Pirates vibe and it did not work for me. If you do like the character, I am currently reading The Lone Ranger Chronicles - an anthology of short stories by various authors including Chuck Dixon and Denny O'Neil. It's pretty good. Also, did any of you see a movie this year called The Way Way Back? A really good coming of age movie with a great performance by Sam Rockwell. Always enjoy the podcasts. Have a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.
August 27, 2013 10:19 pm Can't believe Superman Returns out grossed Batman Begins. How did that happen??
August 27, 2013 10:17 pm Dredd was very good. In case anyone has not seen it, you can now catch it on Netflix streaming.
August 24, 2013 8:32 am I agree that we should just wait and see. But I disagree with your assertion that Hollywood is smarter than the rest of us. Hollywood was going to cast Tom Selleck instead of Harrison Ford in Raiders. It was going to cast Dougray Scott instead of Hugh Jackman in X-Men. I think the main point to get across is, to paraphrase William GoldMan, that no one in Hollywood (or anywhere else) knows anything. So, let's just see what happens. We are all going to go see this movie no matter what anyway.
August 22, 2013 10:09 pm Although I can't wait for him to say "You're suspect" to Superman with a Boston accent.
August 22, 2013 10:02 pm I actually would have preferred Ryan Gosling. Don't think this is the right move. Guess we will just wait and see.

July 24, 2013 9:36 pm Liked the first issue and looking forward to issue #2. By the way is the prose novel you are reading, the "Enemies &Allies" book by Kevin Anderson that came out a couple of years ago? Just finished that one myself and thought it was good.
SDCC 2013: Zack Snyder Announces SUPERMAN/BATMAN Followup to MAN OF STEEL, FLASH and JUSTICE LEAGUE Films May Follow
July 21, 2013 8:37 am That is a great quote. But it is too soon for a Batman/Superman battle "based on that quote". That quote came at the end of a battle after 50 or so years of friendship, betrayal, etc. between Batman & Superman. It would not fit in a movie where they first meet anymore the the Kirk/Spock reactor scene fit in ST Into Darkness. It would not be earned. Nevertheles, I like the idea of a World's Finest movie. I'm just wary.
