Its commentary time again in order to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Superman the Movie, Do You Expect Us To Talk? sat down with Charlie Brigden to watch the classic from 1978. You can find our original review here.
Sit back and listen to Becca, Dave, Chris and Charlie as we discuss the lack of sex in brief encounter, our hot take on the Goonies, Superman ignoring crimes while trying to get laid, John Glen directing the double-taking pigeon and just how iconic the music is.
Do you expect us to talk returns with an offer you can’t refuse. This week, we begin to take on The Godfather films. Based on Mario Puzo best-selling novel, The Godfather is a family drama about a crime family, Younger son Micheal returns from WW2 seeking a life free from crime. However, when the family is threatened, Micheal feels a moral oblation to get involved and plunges into the dark world of the crime of the family.
Listen to Becca, Chris and Dave as we attempt to make dick jokes, discuss who may have been cast, the troubled production that turned into a classic and of course Chris’s fruity corner.
This episode of Do You Expect Us to Talk continues with the Superman saga with Superman 2. Arguably the most popular superman film, Christopher Reeve returns with a comedic slapstick director taking over Richard Donner and adding goofy shit. General Zod and his goons break free from the phantom zone and fly to earth to rule. While this happens, Clark contemplates the price of being the saviour of the planet and give it up for love with a high cost.
Join Becca, Chris and Dave as we talk about the differences between the original and the Donner cut, just how fast Lois can fly to France, the problems with honeymoon rackets, made up super powers and of course fruit.
Is it a bird…. is it a plane…. it’s a man wearing bright blue spandex and a red cape? No it’s another episode of Do You Expect Us to Talk as we start another franchise with arguably the biggest superhero of them all…. Superman.
Please note that we’re not covering Man of Steel and Batman Vs Superman… we’ll save that for the current train wreck that is the DC universe films (quality of the future of said films may or may not have changed at time of writing)
Directed By Richard Donner, Superman The Movie tells the full origin of how Superman came to earth to become the saviour of the planet and fall in love with Lois Lane. Join Becca, Dave and Chris as we fly around the world to turn back time to revisit Christoper Reeve still being the best on screen superman, Lois dressed for Hi Di Hi, Clark grabbing muff, Brando playing it like a bagel, a new segment of the show involving fruit and how the ending makes not one like of sense no matter how you look at it.
