If you know Arune, you know he loves Superman, but he doesn’t love Man of Steel. Why is that? It probably comes down to the fundamental flaw that continues to plague the DCEU, as we go through the movie and break down what we do and don’t like.

Iron Man 2 & 3

12/4/2017
More
After a several month delay due to the birth of my son combined with taking on extra writing work this year, the podcast is finally back as Arune Singh joins me to finish off the Iron Man franchise in a double episode. Originally we had planned on doing individual episodes for each Iron Man film, but when we recorded Iron Man 2 and the audio got wrecked the first time, we figured it might be easier to combine them. These are two of the weakest movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but...

9/7/2017
More
Today on the podcast Arune Singh joins me again to begin our trek through the Iron Man franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. How well does a superhero movie from 2008 hold up in 2017? Where did they go right and wrong? How did Marvel turn a B-level hero into the launchpad of the biggest film franchise in history not named Star Wars? The themes of the movie also led us into a talk about race and how representation in comics is a constant struggle, and why it's important.

5/9/2017
More
On the podcast this week Arune Singh is back on with me to talk about the first two movies in the Fast and Furious franchise, but before we got into that we needed to talk about P.K. Subban, his personal success, and the perception of him around the NHL. With the hockey stuff out of the way, we got into two movies from the early 2000's that frankly, aren't very good, but spawned a powerhouse franchise. What about them was so special that people were compelled to keep coming back?

Garret Hohl and Analytics

5/3/2017
More
This week on the podcast I'm joined by the managing editor of Hockey-Graphs.com and the CTO of Hockey Data Inc.; Garret Hohl. Garret is a big proponent of hockey analytics, as am I, although he works more with public data whereas I work with Sportlogiq, a private company that uses proprietary data. We tackle the public understanding of statistics, how great Patrick Laine can be, the pros and cons of binning, and the need for some to throw out analytics whenever they don't perfectly mesh...

After establishing our perspectives, we go into detail on why we're so critical of the original X-Men trilogy, despite it being a trailblazer for the medium, and our problems with the newer trilogy and how it failed...

Trade Deadline, P.K. Subban, and John Wick 2

3/6/2017
More
Arune Singh joins me once again, and originally we were going to talk about Fox's X-Men movies this week, but since Logan came out and I haven't seen it yet, we felt it wouldn't be right to do it without being completist. I did however, see John Wick 2, so that's the topic for this week's podcast. Before we got int that though, we had to touch on the firing of Michel Therrien and hiring of Claude Julien, the trade deadline, and the return of P.K. Subban to the Bell Centre. After a few...
