Movie Meltdown - Episode 360
This week the dynamic duo returns
to their long-running series on superhero movies with an EPIC
discussion of the new release Suicide
Squad. As well as the recent trailers for upcoming
superhero films and how all of this works (or doesn't) into the
bigger universe being built by these movies.
And while we come to terms with the fact that Gotham just sucks as a city, we also mention... Dr. Strange, Wonder Woman, Justice League, Batman: Assault on Arkham, Geoff Johns, Hannibal, clemency?, an origins movie, Léon: The Professional, Captain America, David Ayer, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, James Gunn, one big orgy of geekiness, the reasons for the soundtrack, to make magic not look stupid, don't rhyme... stop rhyming, everybody's parents die, Inglourious Basterds, how to cut a trailer, Captain Kirk, time gem, Kingdom Come, Zack Snyder, The Fifth Element, periodic highs, Disney villains, Michael Bay, getting the band back together, a trailer in the movie... for the next movie, DC philosophy, it's all in the script, Luc Besson, artillery hitting her shield, aimed at millennials, you got like a dozen batpeople running around, Guardians of the Galaxy and my run-in with Jared Leto.
Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for Suicide Squad - so go watch the movie before listening. You have been warned!
"It seems like every movie, they just do what works - in that movie. And no one is considering the bigger picture."
