    Episode 133.5 - Minisode 133.5

    I'd never seen those covers, as I found them when I was looking for something else. There was an issue of "Secret Origins" that had "The Origin of the Jimmy Olsen-Robin team!" on the cover, just for the first page to show their tombstones, with Batman and Superman being like "Well, I guess we shouldn't have let them go out on their own like that...". Of course, they weren't dead because it was the Silver Age, but implied sidekick murder is ALWAYS hilarious.

    I think that the DC movie universe so far and what Zack Snyder THINKS he knows about the characters can be traced back to this... Holy shit, did Supes and Bats ever have it out for those two. Jimmy and Robin ending up in an early grave was apparently something that got revisited quite often...

    Best I've done so far is 58 clicks. I can beat this. Just one more time. Yes, just one more time...

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

    While most of your points are right on, the reaction to Deadpool was EXACTLY what you thought it wasn't, which was people seeing the trailer and thinking "It's a Marvel movie, so I can totally take my kids". At my theater, there were very few problems with it, which is shocking, and this was even after telling a lot of people that came in with small kids that seemingly didn't know better "Hey, this totally isn't for kids". Some were like "Yeah, I know", while others had NO clue what it was, just that their four-year-old thought it was Spider-Man, so they figured "What the hell?". It's kind of ironic though that this adult character seems to be playing better across the board with a lighter tone than these all-ages icons that are playing it super dark, but that's what happens when you get the CHARACTERS right. Also, there's Deadpool merch allllllllllll over the place. Up until a couple months ago, he was certainly the most heavily-branded character that had never had a movie.

    Episode 132.5 - Minisode 132.5

    I have a job that has me working a lot of late Sunday nights. I pretty much have to go into social media blackout and then determine in what order I must watch the various things when I get home, which is often also affected by my MONDAY schedule. I work until 11 this Sunday, so I have both WrestleMania 32 and the Walking Dead season finale to worry about. Fortunately, I don't work Monday, so I'll probably be done with those by about 6 am...

    I have an issue with this list, as I've used Max Keeble as a punchline for years, and I know that it's a DISNEY film, not Nickelodeon!

    Bad Movies That Have Aged Well Over Time

    That's kind of what I was getting at, as I couldn't be bothered to give a shit about this thing when I was supposed to be the target demo, but I knew some people that loved it for all the reasons I didn't. It's great to watch ironically, to look at all the stuff they got so, so wrong, and to see actors that had no understanding of the material fumble their way through it, but it's not something I'd show to anyone that wasn't in the same mindset.

    Bad Movies That Have Aged Well Over Time

    I think "Hackers" is maybe the inverse of this, as it seemed mayyyyyyybe less ridiculous to begin with, but retroactively misses the mark that much more with almost every day that goes by. I think it's more enjoyable now than it was when I was a teenager.

    Episode 132 - Bloodsport: LIVE!

    I think that before the lighter Waid stuff happens, Matt needs to get "Born Again". Jeez, I haven't been here all week. Stupid work...

    I can't think of a more appropriate time to bring a certain question out of retirement. Drumroll, please...

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

    That reminds me, I saw an article a couple weeks back that was called "Henry Cavill has seen the Justice League script". Well, it starts filming in about two weeks, so I certainly HOPE he would have seen it by now. Does anyone else wonder where the IHOPs went?

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

    I remember thinking that "Man of Steel" was a bigger international hit, but that really wasn't the case. It did around 300 million here and a little over that in the rest of the world, so it'll be interesting to see how much Batman helps the numbers of the new one. This reminds me, in addition to "Civil War" hype taking some wind out of BvS's sails, how crazy nutso is it that this movie has to follow the success of "Deadpool", which cost relatively little, was marketed extremely well, and has now out-grossed Superman's last movie? It's seen as a phenomenon, and it is, while MoS could make the same money and be considered a disappointment. Bonkers.

    I don't think Routh was bad, but he was literally given nothing to do in that movie. He's fun as The Atom on TV, and I've liked him in quite a few other things too.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

    Having also seen the second season "Daredevil" this week (I may have mentioned it...), I'd argue that a certain supporting character with three failed feature films to his credit did more to increase the worth of his brand than either of the guys in this movie.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

    Oh, and the movie could have been 5-10 minutes shorter if they skipped the Batman origin stuff. "Oh? What? It's the same as it's been every other time? Thanks for letting me know, movie!"

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

    Just saw it and went in review-free. Here's what I posted on Facebook: "Superman V Batman" felt like two and a half hours of "Who gives a shit?". It felt completely hollow and unearned, which may be the fault of DC and Warner Brothers themselves putting the cart so ridiculously far before the horse on this one, letting us know what they'd LIKE to do over the next ten movies or so. Every big reveal, every dropped line that was supposed to mean something, and every hint of what's to come just falls really, really flat and empty. Affleck was really good, the Batman stuff was the best, and Luthor was fun, but it felt like every problem that they tried to address from "Man of Steel" was a gross over-correction and that it came off as really heavy-handed. I'll be happy to go into detail if anyone wants to discuss it here.

    The Lost Boys (1987)

    Speaking of the grandpa, was the Rob Lowe poster on the wall HIS, or did Corey put it up when he got there? That was a little odd. Anyway, Lowe had appeared in an earlier Joel Schumacher film, "St. Elmo's Fire", so that was a shoutout to him...I think?

    Elektra (2005)

    Oh jeez, the only thing more boring than watching "Elektra" is watching it while someone is talking about the making of "Elektra".

    Episode 131.5 - Minisode 131.5

    I think that with some tweaks, they could still adapt the Fraction run and have it fit within the Marvel movie universe. I mean, the guy needs somewhere to live while he's in New York on Avengers business, and maybe he just wants to get the hell out of the office once in a while, so why not have him be the everyman living in an apartment in a shitty building with wacky neighbors and low-level hoods running around? Maybe he takes on an apprentice in Kate Bishop and keeps having run-ins with people from his past, thus making it IMPOSSIBLE for him to just get a day off. Oh, and since I love the Dolph Punisher, here's a pretty fair article from last year that explains how that movie wasn't as bad as people think... http://www.denofgeek.us/movies/the-punisher/246961/the-punisher-the-bloody-legacy-of-marvels-first-superhero-movie

    Van Damme Character Names

    Aside from the second one, which you can totally skip, he talks less and less as the series goes on, so it isn't as ridiculous.

    Episode 131.5 - Minisode 131.5

    I'm pretty sure that it was my first introduction to the character, and it hits all the bullet points (heh...) of the 80s Punisher comics. Still don't know why they couldn't at least do a skull t-shirt, but I think the more recent "Realistic" stories in the movies and TV shows have retroactively made that more forgivable, as it doesn't really matter anyway what they're wearing or if it doesn't look straight out of the comics if the characterization isn't right. The Dolph Punisher movie is also a good representation of the product of its time, a fine late-80s B-movie shoot-'em-up, and I'd put it right up there with stuff that got a better release.

    Episode 131.5 - Minisode 131.5

    I didn't care for the 2004 movie really, but Thomas Jane's performance wasn't bad, and I think Bernthal's take on it is most comparable to that version, as far as previous Punishers go, but still quite a bit better. He has no trouble fucking up your day, but isn't a hulking beast like Dolph or Stevenson, which makes him more sympathetic or relatable. I'll be damned if the Dolph Lundgren version isn't my all-around favorite Punisher movie though. War Zone plays better as an action comedy almost, while the 2004 one is a tone deaf mishmash of elements that don't all seem like they belong in the same movie.
