CBL #57: X-Men (2000)

March 12, 2018

Spring is in the air over at Planet Arbitrary Studios, a time for new beginnings, rebirth, and matching black leather uniforms. Join your hosts for a rambling trip back to the turn of the century as they revisit the start of the modern comic book movie epidemic, X-MEN! See your favorite heroes and villains come to life on the big screen — classic characters like Toad and Iceman! Is this nearly two decades-old franchise worth revisiting, or were we better off sticking with our McAvoys and our Fassbenderses?

CBL #56: Black Panther (2018) / Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

February 26, 2018

The first big comic book movie of the year is here, and now that BLACK PANTHER has broken records and is on track to make all the billions of dollars, it’s high time for your hosts to weigh in and give the definitive take. Is the latest offering from the MCU (the 18th!) as groundbreaking as they say, or is it just another conventional superhero movie? Joe and Kevin break down the plot with a spoiler-heavy review, plus they finally get around to sharing a few thoughts on SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING!

CBL #55: 2018 CBL Movie Preview

January 29, 2018

It’s a new year, and so your hosts are taking some time out from their winter hibernation to talk about the year ahead in comic book movies! There’s a bunch of them, but sometimes the schedule doesn’t work out the way they think so who knows how many of these movies we’re actually going to get? But so far we have big movies from Marvel, Fox, Sony, and yes, even DC on the horizon, so we dig in to what is tentatively coming to a multiplex near you during 2018. Plus some Oscar talk and some ideas of where we might go in 2019 and beyond!

CBL #54: Justice League (2017)

November 20, 2017

The long wait is over and JUSTICE LEAGUE is finally upon us. Joe & Kevin are fresh from opening weekend and ready to dissect everything from Batman’s collection of menswear to Superman’s digitally altered upper lip. Was it worth the wait to see the team assemble to save the world, or is this one more DC failure for the trash heap? So join your hosts on a Magic Carpet Ride for a SPOILER-HEAVY review of the movie, plus some thoughts on the new PUNISHER series from Netflix.

CBL #53: Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

November 8, 2017

CBL makes its triumphant return to the internet-waves to talk about the latest Marvel joint, THOR: RAGNAROK! Long-time listeners will know our hosts’ thoughts on the Thor movies so far, but will the deadpan humor of director Taika Waititi turn this franchise around? Were all the jokes in the trailer and the rest of the movie a bunch of CGI punching, as usual? We give a SPOILER-HEAVY review, plus catch up on all the comic book movie news we missed since our last episode!

CBL #52: Judge Dredd (1995)

June 26, 2017

This week, Joe and Kevin take The Long Walk to a post-apocalyptic police state with the 1995 career killer JUDGE DREDD! Although this isn’t a movie with a great reputation, we thought a revisit might yield some interesting ideas and maybe some silly, mindless 90s action-comedy. But do Sylvester Stallone and his wacky sidekick Rob Schneider deliver the action and/or comedy, or was this all a terrible mistake?

CBL #51: Wonder Woman (2017)

June 12, 2017

The biggest movie in the world right now is WONDER WOMAN, breathing new life into the dying corpse of the DC Extended Universe! It’s the film everyone is talking about, so naturally we give our long-winded opinions on Diana Prince’s journey from her idyllic island home to the front lines of World War I! Is WONDER WOMAN worth the hype, or is this another miss from DC? We dig into the movie, plus comic book news and a few words on the passing of the great Adam West.

CBL #50: Wonder Woman (1974)

May 29, 2017

This week, in anticipation of the next DCEU film WONDER WOMAN, we’re taking a look at the very first attempt at a WONDER WOMAN TV/movie from 1974, starring Cathy Lee Crosby as a blond super spy who may or may not have any tangential relation to the character of Wonder Woman. International intrigue! Pantsuits! Donkeys! And special guest star, Ricardo Montalban! Does this weird genre mashup have any entertainment value today, or did we just waste 75 minutes and $3 to rent it on Amazon? Hey, wait a minute... Wonder Woman? Amazon? What a twist!

CBL #48: Logan (2017) / John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)

March 6, 2017

It’s time to get R-Rated with our SPOILER-HEAVY review of the 2017 film LOGAN, the film which dares to ask the question “What if your favorite comic book characters got really old, sick, and died?” The blood, drama, and naughty words are front in center in the latest and possibly final outing for Hugh Jackman as (The) Wolverine, but is this gritty, dusty movie a fitting send-off for our adamantium hero, or is it just depressing? We’ll get into the weeds, and also share our thoughts on JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2!
