The Superhero Pantheon: Morbius

So it’s come to this. Morbius finally came out. Sony threatened this film on su for three years, and here it is, all one hour and 45 minutes of CGI sludge with minimal plot but a fun Matt Smith performance.

The Superhero Pantheon: The Batman (Theatrical Review)

Jerome and Brian examine a new release this week. Did the world really need a three hour noir Batman story? Maybe not but what a tremendous effort from Matt Reeves. After reinventing the ‘Apes’ franchise for the 21st century, Reeves does something similar for Batman.

We get a lot of Batman in the suit but very little Andy Serkis. We also get a number of people from the rogue’s gallery, including an unwelcome tease. Enjoy our nearly hour long discussion on one of the best modern superhero movies of these first couple years of the decade.
