Three years after the release of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford return for Indiana Jones’s next adventure (Although, technically this takes place before Raiders)! A darker film than Raiders, Indy is tasked with finding a magical stone that has been stolen from a small village (along with all the children of the village). Accompanying him this time are Short Round, played by Ke Huy Quan, and Willie, played by Kate Capshaw. There’s bugs (and snakes, of course), chilled monkey brains, brain washing and human sacrifices! What’s not to love?

Superheroes, Movies & Superhero Movies – Episode 097 – Batman Begins 
After a seven year wait, we finally got another, serious Batman movie. Gone were the campy, toy-sales driven, bat-nipple filled Batman movies. The fans wanted Batman taken seriously and director Christopher Nolan delivered the goods. Set in a much more realistic universe, Nolan gave us a Batman origin story, which was something we’d yet to see. It was a fantastic direction for not just Batman but comic book movies in general. As Bruce Wayne discovers how to be Batman, the movie sets up Scarecrow and Ra’s al Ghul as his first adversaries. How does it hold up and what do the guys think of it? What do YOU think of Batman Begins? Let us know!

Superheroes, Movies & Superhero Movies – Episode 095 – The Lost World: Jurassic Park 
Jurassic Park was a huge deal. Especially to people like me who were kids when it was released. So the sequel to Jurassic Park was also a huge deal. I remember my excitement level was through the roof. Seeing the trailers and knowing there were two T-Rexes and more dinosaurs was almost too much to handle. Did it meet expectations? This one was a fun episode and we hope you enjoy it. Let us know what you think of The Lost World: Jurassic Park!
Unfortunately, our video recording didn’t work out this week so while I did upload this episode to YouTube, it’s audio only but feel free to check it out here.
