Whatever Will Happen to the Tape Crusaders?

It’s almost time for the main event, folks. Yes, The Reel World Podcast’s coverage of Batman: The Animated Series is fast approaching! Those of you who do get in touch with us (which you should absolutely feel free to do by commenting here or heading over to The Facebook or The Twitter) have been clamouring (suck it, America) for us to do BTAS since we announced we were moving on to Batman in the first place, and for good reason.

But there’s a LOT of episodes and we don’t have the time to hit them all, so instead we’re taking 15 of the very best episodes and using them to inform our discussion. So if you want to play along at home and get yourselves ready too, here’s our list! Continue reading Whatever Will Happen to the Tape Crusaders?

The Tape Crusaders: Episode #13 – Justice League: The New Frontier

Mike & Matt’s loooooooong journey through the pantheon of Batman on-screen is finally drawing to a close, but before we reach our final destination it’s time for a quick stop in a corner of the Batverse that we haven’t really covered so far: The Justice League. Rather than squeeze another 8 episodes out of Tape Crusaders, Mike let Matt pick his favourite of the bunch and that was The New Frontier.

The Tape Crusaders: Episode #12 – Mask of the PhantasmSubZero

Batman: The Animated Series was one of the most beloved Batman stories ever. It only led to two films though. Matt and Mike took a look at both of them for this episode (yes, we’ll watch the actual show soon; we promise).

2017 Re-Watch: Batman: Under the Red Hood

redhood

2017 will see me revisiting some films that I think need or deserve a fresh take. It will be a series of columns cleverly called, “2017 Re-Watch.”

Without question, Under the Red Hood is one of the most creatively successful Batman films ever. It tops the majority of the live-action Batman films and is head-and-shoulders above the rest of the animated entries.

While there are a number of aspects of the film to like, you really just need to look at the final sequence to understand how this film reached such great heights.

The Tape Crusaders: Episode #11 – Under the Red Hood & Return of Joker

Deadpool Under the Red Hood and Return of Joker are two of the Batman animated films that truly focus on the Batman and Robin relationship. They’re both very interesting for very different reasons and well worth your time. Listen to Mike and Matt explain why!

The Trump Era Films: Trackdown – “The End of the World”

trump1

With four years of Donald Trump the President of the United States on the horizon, we are all going to have to find some ways to cope. My way is certainly just about the least productive possible. I will be searching for movies that provide some sort of catharsis for myself. It’s self-indulgent to the last degree, but we all need a little something.

What in the ever-loving fuck? Continue reading The Trump Era Films: Trackdown – “The End of the World”
