Good evening Batfans… Batman returns in…. well… Batman Returns. Starring a very pouty Micheal Keaton, an erratic Michelle Pfeiffer, a pervy Danny De Vito and Christopher Walken as Jack Skellington Scissorhands set in a Tim Burton snowglobe with a story makes less sense the more you look at it.
Join Becca, Chris and Dave as we discuss Chris breaking the law, Superman apologising for stuff, is this a Batman movie or a Tim Burton movie, what Penguins motives are, the best tag line ever and how easy Batman finds everything.
Well hello bat fans, Do You Expect Us To Talk returns with the biggest film of 1989. Batman. Directed by Tim Burton, Batman see’s the origin of the Joker and his reign of terror on Gotham city. After he releases poisonous toxins into cleaning and beauty products, Batman must put a stop to him while coming to grips with his own demons.
Join Becca, Chris and Dave as we look back at the bat-mania that hit the end of the 80’s and we discuss the importance of Billy Dee Williams’s role, the madness of Sean Young, not Steve Guttenberg, Becca’s level of enjoyment saying “Top Men”, one arm push ups and of course.. that Prince soundtrack.
Holy shark attack Batfans.. Do You Expect Us To Talk has returned with another series. Not long coming off the Superman film, It’s time the team take on his fellow DC counterpart, Batman. We start off with the dark and gritty spin-off from the 1960’s tv show starring Adam West and Burt Ward. Gotham City (Not at all California) has been hit with the villainous group of Penguin, Joker, Catwoman and Riddler as they plan to kidnap not the united nations. Can the caped crusader and the boy wonder save the day?
Join Becca, Chris and Dave as we sit through the film and chat about things such as other brands of shark repellant, how Batman is government funded, slow-moving torpedoes, the Bat Computer doing all the detective work, how little plot there really is, how the villains plan to take over the world really won’t work and what is the correct way to get rid of a bomb.
Ding Ding… The final round has begun as we reach Creed. Adonis “Johnson” Creed, Apolo’s son from an extramarital lover, tries to follow in his dad’s footsteps to become a professional boxer. Leaving his comfortable desk job behind he travels to Philadelphia to meet Apolo’s old friend and rival Rocky to persuade him to train. Adonis finds himself in a match with the Light Heavyweight Champion but must also fight his inner demons and conflict of who he is can he live up to his father’s legacy.
Join Becca, Chris and Dave as we talk about how great Stallone is, could this be the best in the series, what parts of the movie made us cry, Chris’s scouse accent, Lisa Bonet and how Stallone doesn’t get modern technology.
Ding Ding.. Do You Expect Us To Talk reaches the penultimate round in the Rocky series. Thought of as the final film for some time, Rocky Balboa sees Rocky enjoying the quiet life away from the boxing world. Now with his wife Adrien passed away, the former champion is now running a restaurant in his hometown of Philadelphia named after his wife. In a time of uninspiring fighters, the current heavyweight champion, Mason ‘The Line’ Dixon is blasted for only being a champion after not fighting any real competitors. After a computer simulation of the two fighters gets broadcast on TV predicts a win for Rocky, the public and promoters get curious about a real match.
Join Becca, Chris and Dave as we discuss was Stallone really too old for this shit, whatever happened to Marie, 1960s computer technology, who gives a shit about Steps, which one of us cried at this film and why Ceaser is an arsehole in this and Paulie isn’t?
Ding Ding.. Round 5… This time Do You Expect Us To Talk “Go For It” with the fifth film that was to be the final instalment of the franchise until another two films were made to apologise for it existing. Coming straight off the plane after fighting Drago and a decline in health, Rocky announces his retirement despite the efforts of Not Don King. Faced with the risk to his health, Paulie fucks everything up and loses all their money bringing everyone back to where they started in the streets of Phillidelia. Rocky takes over Mick’s Gym and starts to train a new boxer, Tommy Gunn, while neglecting his son and the issues he’s going through and also neglecting Not Don King objectives.
Join Becca, Chris and Dave as we realise what a dick Rocky is, if the mullet was ever a good look, the way time works in this franchise, hip rap music, is this film really all that bad and of course that fucking earring.
P.S we also forget to mention the god awful Elton John song over the end credits.
Ding Ding… round 4… This time Do You Expect Us to Talk reaches montage heaven as Rocky fights a big Russian. Rocky travels to Russia to train in snow and climb a mountain to fight Ivan Drago after a tragedy falls upon his friend. Join us as we figure out what percentage of the film is montages.
Listen and enjoy to Becca, Chris and Dave as we talk about robot sex slaves, how the press are douchebags, the surprising depth of Adrian’s part in the movie, Dolph Lundgren’s acting talents, James Brown, being moody driving reflecting on life while listening to soft rock and Chris’s claim that this is the essential film to watch in the series.
Ding Ding… Round three…. This time Do You Expect Us To Talk gets The Eye of the Tiger as we go toe to toe with Mr T. Rocky is now champ and successful but there’s a new threat in the form of Clubber Lang who wants his shot. When Rocky’s new lifestyle leaves him soft, Rocky tragically looses his traimer Micky and now must look to his old rival to regain the fire he once had in what is the greatest love story of a generation.
Join Becca, Chris and Dave we discuss homoeroticism, was Mr T acting or not, what little Adrian has to do, where’s that kid of theirs and the good old days where two grown men in tank tops frolicking around in the sea without speculation.
Ding Ding. Round two… It’s the rematch we’ve all been waiting ever since last week. Yes the champion Apollo Creed goes one on one again with the Italian Stallion to prove to the world that last time was a fluke. Meanwhile, Rocky gets married and tries to adapt to fame and life outside of boxing as Adrian is pregnant with a baby chimp.
Join Becca, Chris and Dave as we discuss Stallone’s bouffant hair and tasteful fashion sense, hairy children, movie comas and what really happened at Rocky’s and Creeds third match.
