Batman and Robin and Why George Clooney Hates This Movie

Batman and Robin! And Batgirl too! It never made sense to me that she doesn't get a namecheck in the title. It's a weird movie this one in that even though it is completely terrible; neither of us actually hated it. It's fun. We think? Plus! George Clooney will give you money from his own pocket if you approach him in the street and tell him you saw it and hated it. True story. Also! Mr Freeze went from one of the dumbest villain in Batman's rogue gallery to being arguably one of the...

If you haven't seen Endgame, don't even listen. Save it for the drive home. I can't give you any more warning than that. Plus! A couple bicker over whether this movie is good, enjoyable and if anyone has any right to criticise it if they're not a fan of the series in the first place. Also! The same couple...


Batman Returns and How Ronald McDonald Took Down Tim Burton

Batman returns in 1992's Batman Returns! Listen as we talk plot, characters, costumes and how Bruce Wayne scratches a CD to spread Fake News. Plus! Before your mum started being outraged on Facebook she was writing letters to get stuff banned. Believe it or not, this actually worked! The 90s eh? You could be taken down by a simple letter writing campaign and the bottomless funds of the McDonalds corporation. Also! Who else was in the running to take the whip and be painted into the...


Batman 1989 and The Man Who Stole the Dark Knight

A look back at Tim Burton's Batman from all the way back in 1989! We discuss the plot, the characters and the actors' performances - some are terrible but maybe not the ones you're thinking of. We also question whether this is actually a Batman movie and maybe more of a Joker movie. Plus! The Batman creation story and the tragic tale of Bill Finger and how he was denied credit and money by the man who claimed to have created the Batman character - Bob Kane. Also! How great is the...


Joker Trailer Reaction - Is It A Bonus

All the hot off our brains reaction to the trailer for the Joker movie! We ask all the tough questions like 'Is this stupid?', 'Is it a remake of a better movie?' and 'Is this whole thing being made just to have a dig at Ben Affleck?' Plus! What the hell happened to Jared Leto and his method acting? Also! A couple argue about naming a podcast. This is why we don't have a pet. Thanks for downloading!

Lizard people in human suits. Thanks for downloading! For all enquiries please email...


Captain America The First Avenger and How Marvel Fought the Nazis

We'll be discussing why, how, who and what's the point along with some body shaming and misnaming of characters. Plus! How Marvel in the 40s stood up to the Nazis and won.
