Movie Meltdown - Episode 260
This episode we continue our discussion of graphic novels turned into movies that we began in episode 259. But this time we branch out with questions like, ‘Do we always NEED an origin story’? And some of us come clean about just when we decided to stop hiding that comic geek inside of us. Which makes us wonder if it’s easier being geeky in school today vs. years ago? So many dorky topics… and yet we address them all!
Plus along the way we also discuss… killing off villains, The Raid: Redemption, Underoos, Zack Snyder, Battle Royale, Sleepy Hollow, Byronic vampires, North Korea, Guardians of the Galaxy, Loki, 30 Days of Night, Nerdcore music, Persepolis, Cat Sh*t One, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Let the Right One In, Oldboy, 300, The Rocketeer, the mutant/human struggle,The Crow, Tokyopop, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Hellboy, Akira, The Craft, horror manga, Grave of the Fireflies, Evangelion, Dredd vs. Judge Dredd, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Vietnam, Gilgamesh... with ninjas, Sylvester Stallone, revisiting origin stories, Pyongyang, From Hell, Y: The Last Man, The Dark Knight, and I feel like… it ruined my childhood - less?
Spoiler Alert: Spoilers for seasons 2 and 4 of “The Walking Dead”. You have been warned!
“So here’s what we do… we start every superhero movie now, with an old cranky man coming out: ‘You damned kids should know this by now!’”
