Before we move on to the next film series, we take another look at the music behind comic book superhero movies. Taking us on this journey, Charlie Brigden takes us back to the early days of classic cinema. Looking back at the foundations that lead up to the famous John Williams Superman theme all the way to Man of Steel.
Just to note, we touch on Marvel in this episode but it will feature in a future podcast.
Charlie has his own website and podcast called Moviedrone, please check it out and subscribe.
So as we are stalling waiting for Charlie to come back from holiday to do the comic book movie score episode, we decided to come back to Gotham’s finest. Naturally, we went to the crown jewel of the Batman franchise to sit down and watch together……. (deep sigh)… Batman and Robin.
Listen to Becca, Chris and Dave as we talk Josh Trank and Cronical, films that happened in 1997, Star Wars, how many times Becca says “Ice to see you”, offering our bodies to fans of the show and pretty much any thing that doesn’t involve watching this god damn movie again.
Do you expect us to talk returns to Bond in a commentary of You Only Live Twice. Before we move on to another series we’ll make a quick pit stop with Batman as well before moving onto superhero soundtracks.
This commentary features more talk on bourbons, should 007 be hairy, what a pointless character Kissy is, should The Rock be in a Bond film and Dave’s crushes over Miss Moneypenny.
Good evening bat fans. We reach the end of the Nolan films and the end of the Batman franchise. The Dark Knight Rises sees Bruce 8 years on, a recluse in Wayne manner resting Batman as the Dent Act has cleaned up the streets of Gotham. However, unbeknownst to Commissioner Gordan and Bruce Wayne, a threat is rising underneath the streets. The dark shadow of Bruce’s past from the Leauge of Shadows in the form of Bane. Bruce must confront his fear again and find his true self to save Gotham from being doomed.
Join Becca, Chris and Dave as we dig our way through the plot holes while doing Bane and Micheal Cain impressions, when did Gotham become New York, Bane’s training and belief, performing acrobatics in high heels, the mystery of the shaven cops and who’s going to train John Blake?
