Legends Podcast #407; Green Lantern (Canuary)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

We’re back in the bathroom of the cinematic calendar – the month of January – and this year we’re hitting the bargain bins to dig up some turds from the comic book movie genre. Grab some TP and recite the oath – this is Canuary!

 

The DCEU got off to an abortive start when Green Lantern failed to light up the box office in 2011. Starring Ryan Reynolds as a test pilot turned emerald space cop, the movie crashed and burned in theaters and didn’t bring in enough green to fund a sequel, let alone spin off a cinematic universe. However, the movie wasn’t a complete loss: the original screenwriters went on to create their own DC Universe – on TV! Co-stars Angela Bassett and Taika Waititi went on to join the MCU, Temuera Morrison showed up in Aquaman, Mark Strong will get another shot at DC glory in Shazam!, and even CGI costumes are back in fashion. Everyone’s wearing them now! In fact, the only person who hasn’t made a comeback is Ryan Reynolds, right? That guy just isn’t cut out for playing the snarky bad boy lead in a comic movie. History will prove me right!

Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert! These discussions will be spoiler filled and may explicit language, so consider yourself warned.

Legends Podcast #406; Watchmen (Canuary)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

We’re back in the bathroom of the cinematic calendar – the month of January – and this year we’re hitting the bargain bins to dig up some turds from the comic book movie genre. Grab some TP (and some Band Aids) because the streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood – this is Canuary!From “visionary director” Zack Snyder comes the long-awaited adaptation of the greatest graphic novel of all time: Watchmen. Released in 2009 and based on the 1987 work by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, Snyder’s Watchmen instantly divided fans and critics. Was it too long, too dark, and too violent, or was it simply being faithful to the source material? Or did it stick to the letter of the source too slavishly, while failing to capture the spirit of the groundbreaking book, once called unfilmable by Moore, who refused to be named in the credits? Regardless, the end result was a moderate box office success. Now our hosts will seek to answer the age-old question: who watches Watchmen – if they can help it?

We’re back in the bathroom of the cinematic calendar – the month of January – and this year we’re hitting the bargain bins to dig up some turds from the comic book movie genre. Grab some TP and take a seat – this is Canuary!This week, we’re getting in touch with our feline side and watching one of the worst movies ever made, according to Wikipedia. Released in 2004, starring Halle Berry, directed by Pitof, and loosely based on the DC Comics character – meow is time to talk about Catwoman.


Legends Podcast #404 (co-host not found :/ ).. The Shape of Water (del Toro)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

We’re wrapping up 2018 with last year’s Academy Award winning film The Shape of Water. Starring Sally Hawkins, Richard Jenkins, Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer, and Doug Jones, the film earned thirteen Oscar nominations and won four, including Best Picture and Best Director for Guillermo del Toro. The Shape of Water delighted audiences and Academy voters with a modern fairy tale set in 1962 Baltimore. But does this story of interspecies romance hold water with our hosts, or does it stink like the office microwave after Yolanda nukes her three-day-old tuna casserole? Stay tuned to the end as we rank our favorite films of 2018 and discuss what we’re looking forward to in 2019.
