Following Batman v Superman, we were introduced to the Suicide Squad, a team of bad guys coerced into saving the day! Written and directed by David Ayer, it was met with about the same reception as Batman v Superman, and people have really strong opinions on Jared Leto’s portrayal of the Joker. This also marks the first live action portrayal of Harley Quinn (although Dr. Harleen Quinzel was portrayed on Birds of Prey back in 2002). Along for the ride is Deadshot, played by Will Smith, Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc, Diablo, Katana kand Killer Croc! What do you think of Suicide Squad?
One year after The Fellowship of the Ring was released, we got The Two Towers. This film gave us a proper introduction to Gollum and introduced us to a few new characters including Treebeard. How does the second film in the fantasy franchise hold up? Check out what the guys think and let us know what YOU think!
Following the hugely successful X2: X-Men United, director Bryan Singer left the franchise to direct Superman Returns and Brett Ratner stepped in to helm the third X-Men film. Although considered one of the worst films of the franchise, there were still seven X-Men films that followed it. How’s it hold up fifteen years later? Check out what the guys think about it and let us know what you think in the comments!
The wait is finally over. The theatrical version of Justice League made its way into theaters in November of 2017, now here we are in March of 2021 finally able to see Zack Snyder’s original vision of the film. Some said it would never happen, that a cut didn’t exist. Well, here we are. So, was it worth the wait? Was Darkseid as awesome as he looked in the trailer? Should WB restore the Snyderverse? Or should this version of the movie never have seen the light of day? Check out the episode to hear what the guys think!
The third installment of the Star Trek movie franchise finds the crew disobeying Starfleet orders to try and save their friend Spock! But wait, didn’t Spock die? Yes! And maybe not really! Find out what the guys think of Leonard Nimoy’s directorial debut and let us know what you think!
Along with Return of the Jedi, 1983 brought us another part 3 that is… well, not as widely loved. Christopher Reeve returns as the Man of Steel, but gone are Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder (mostly), and really anything that made the first two movies so darn great. But we do get Superman fighting Clark Kent, and maybe the closest thing to a big-screen Brainiac that we’ve seen so far. What do you think of Superman III?
Released roughly six months after Part II, Back to the Future Part III finds Marty McFly in the old west trying to save his buddy Doc Brown from ‘Mad Dog’ Tannen (not Tanner as Justin incorrectly states in this episode). Where does the third film rank among the other two and what do YOU think about Back to the Future Part III? Let us know!
The first film of Phase II finds Tony Stark with anxiety due to the events of The Avengers. He can’t sleep, he just keeps tinkering with his suits and gadgets, and now there’s a new threat: The Mandarin. What did the guys think of the third and final Iron Man movie? Let us know what you think!
The year is 1999. Many excellent movies came out in 1999 but perhaps the greatest (depending on who you ask) was the genre bending sci-fi flick called The Matrix starring Keanu Reeves. It’s impact on cinema and pop culture is undeniable and the guys really enjoyed talking about this one. Let us know what you think of episode and The Matrix!

Warner Bros. decided to do something interesting and have a movie that’s not in the universe that was set up with 2013’s Man of Steel. Doesn’t sound too crazy, but in the world of connected films and shared universes, this actually seemed to be thinking out of the box. Todd Phillips directed Joaquin Phoenix in an Oscar winning performance as Gotham’s Clown Prince of Crime in a dark and R-rated origin story. What did the guys think? Check it out and let us know what YOU think!
