Batman - Supplement

While we try to cover as much as we can in our episodes, there's always more to see, hear, and read about a movie that can enhance your viewing experience. If you enjoyed our episode on Batman, here's a few extra bits you might find interesting...


Episode 33: Batman


Bob, Corinne, and Tim prowl the dark alleys of Gotham to take on the cultural phenomenon that was Tim Burton's Batman from 1989. We discuss the controversial casting of Michael Keaton as the Caped Crusader, compare the movie's depiction of the Dark Knight to his other TV and film appearances, and ponder the Batmobile-sized plot holes in its screenplay. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and speculation on the potential crime-fighting career of the Mooseman!

Episode 32 Outtake: Melting Down the Man of Steel

While recording out last episode on Superman: The Movie, Ellie and I commented on the various sequels and spin-offs, eventually getting into a little debate about the merits of Zack Snyder's Man of Steel.


I wrote about the movie a while back, but here we get Ellie's perspective. While brief, the discussion ran a bit too long for the episode and had to be trimmed down but we thought it would be interesting to present it uncut here as everyone gears up for the sequel, Batman v. Superman. Be advised if you haven't seen Man of Steel yet, we do get into some spoilers. Enjoy.
