Episode 23: Superhero Movies Are Not Grounded

Well this is the biggest plot twist of our lifetime.

Last time we got stuck in a cave we were forced to start a podcast, and that’s how we got Zenith. Frankly we all know how that turned out. Pretty well actually. All the best things are made in caves at gunpoint. It’s Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Iron Man 3. Unlike two months ago these movies are actually connected in a trilogy.


Show-notes:


4:53 Our Spider Man episode. I thought this was more recent.
6:00 Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot.
12:26 This Daredevil movie that came out in 2003. I thought this was more recent too.
13:12 Happy Hogan is played by Jon Favreau in a lot of these Marvel movies.
18:38 Quantum of Solace: 2008. Skyfall: 2012. Spectre: 2015.
30:46 Matthew Libatique is the director of photography for Iron Man 2.
38:08 Iron Man is by Black Sabbath.
51:20 Genndy Tartakovsky is a Russian-American animator who storyboarded Iron Man 2 and created Sym-bionic Titan, which was cancelled for merchandising reasons.
56:56 We also did an episode on The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly (and the other Dollars movies) a few years ago.

Episode 20.5: The Predator Killer

By which I mean, the Predator franchise killer is this movie.

I think it’s about time to give up on the Predator franchise. If The Predator shows the direction of the franchise, then we should really just. Pack it in. I’m not really exaggerating here. Go and watch it if you don’t believe me. No really. Go. Then come back and listen to us talk about The Predator, directed by Shane Black and released on September 14, 2018.


Show-notes:


2:24 The Nice Guys was the last movie that Shane Black directed and is probably at least five times better than The Predator.
3:13 Fred Decker’s filmography includes some “cult hit” horror movies from the 80s, like The Monster Squad.
5:33 I’ve seen stranger things than Stranger Things.
6:37 I’ve seen things more expansive than The Expanse.
6:42 Our other podcasts, Trust Your Doctor and Zenith, have been recognized for being the two greatest podcasts of all time.
7:26 I’ve seen things chuckier than Chuck.
7:46 And The Book of Henry wasn’t book-y or henry-y enough. Come on, Colin.
10:48 Here are trailers for Aquaman, Shazam (starring Zachary Levi), Venom, Serenity (not Plymouth, dunno why I thought it was called that), Overlord, and Alita.
15:13 Props to Henry Jackman for making a good soundtrack for this shitty movie.
20:31 I’ve been meaning to watch Arrival for 2 years.
