I dunno if it’s just us or the entire movie-watching public, but is there a case of the blahs going around? Martin Scorsese says comic-book movies are Ruining Cinema — and what if he’s right? Join us for a thoughtful (but funny!) conversation that digs into the history of Hollywood boom-and-bust cycles, the nature of art within commerce, and why there’s still hope for the future of comic-book movies along with cinema as a whole. Don’t worry, Marty, we fixed it!
But that’s not all! We’ve also got a whole bunch of comic-book psychopaths and serial killers to discuss! The Joker, Beast, Victor Zsasz, the cast of Friends!? That’s right, it’s a seasonally-appropriate, horrifyingly comical warm-up segment that will make you believe in LeatherPhoebe. [insert four claps]
