Episode #29: Sidelined Superheroes

August 5th, 2012


Featured Guest Host:  Miss Amy

There has been no better time in movie history to be a comic nerd.  There are however times when a movie flares up, then is neglected or even forgotten.  Batman is a strange place to...  Begin(s); it was starved for credit once the 2nd movie came out.  V for Vendetta was for a limited audience in the know, and some were simply done with the Wachowskis (though they only produced - like Burton with Lincoln, Vampire Hunter) by that point.  The Punisher, well, it's a good base to see where (possibly why) the last generation of superhero movie makers dropped off.

  • no list - see bold selections above :)

These movies are all very close together in time - of course there are examples of this happening before (send us suggestions) but we were too lazy to go further.  These are also really tight movies (2 of them) and should not have already been lost to the public.  If you don't know these, this might inspire; if you do, you'll share our thoughts as we preach to you, choir.  Hey, at least we made an excuse to talk about these awesome movies, right?

& the Punisher.

In honor of those lost in Aurora - hopefully justice will heal where words cannot...
