CBL #42: Barbarella (1968)

November 28, 2016

It’s time to go camping on CBL — wait, no, not camping, CAMPY! Jane Fonda takes us back to the retro-futuristic 1960s with the sexy classic BARBARELLA! Will Joe’s notorious hatred of Belgian comics keep him from appreciating this peace-love-and-understanding tale of sexual liberation, or will Babs win the day with some good old-fashioned physical play? We also talk new comic book movie news and recast the movie in the modern day.

CBL #41: Doctor Strange (2016)

November 14, 2016

This week, CBL is getting strange… DOCTOR STRANGE, that is! It’s a spoiler-filled discussion of the latest MCU offering, starring beloved internet mascot Benedict Cumberbatch as the wizard-doctor himself — or is that doctor wizard? Does the MCU have another hit on its hands, or should we all wave our hands and grab our sling rings and make this movie disappear? We talk the movie, some comic book movie news, and share our top 3 movie magicians!

As always, here be spoilers!

CBL #39: Blade II (2002)

October 3, 2016
This week, CBL returns to the leather-and-sunglasses-clad streets of Manhattan for BLADE II! This time HELLBOY director Guillermo Del Toro shows us what happens when a genetic mutation creates a race of super vampires and you don’t take a second pass at the script the studio handed you. Country legend Kris Kristofferson and tax evader Wesley Snipes are back in action, but is any of this post-MATRIX techno-babble worth your time? We talk vampires, some upcoming comic book movie news, and name our top 3 movie badasses!

CBL #37: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) / The Tick (2016)

September 5, 2016
Comic Book Logic returns this week with our take on the beloved 2010 comic book/video game movie mashup SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD. Does Scott’s quest to win the heart of literal dream girl Ramona Flowers by defeating her “evil exes” win our hearts as well, or are we, as the saying goes, getting too old for this stuff? Plus, we take a look at the Amazon pilot for the newest live action incarnation of THE TICK, and share our top 3 visually inventive movies.

CBL #36: Suicide Squad (2016)

August 9, 2016
It’s a spoiler-iffic episode of CBL as we take on the brand new entry in the DC Cinematic Universe, SUICIDE SQUAD. Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, and a whole bunch of other weirdos you’ve never heard of are on a mission to save the world… or maybe just rescue their boss… or maybe both? Who knows! How do the so-called “worst heroes ever” fare? Does SUICIDE SQUAD save a lackluster summer and point the DC films in the right direction? Can Jared Leto expect any Oscar buzz for his turn as the Joker? Find out, plus some classic recasting and catch-up from Comic-Con!

CBL Bonus #1: Batman: The Killing Joke (2016)

August 1, 2016
It’s a CBL Bonus Episode! We had a chance to check out the new animated feature BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE and sat down to discuss it. Mark Hamill’s reprisal of his classic Joker notwithstanding, how does the film — and by extension, the classic 1988 graphic novel — hold up to scrutiny? What are they planning to do at the playing card factory, anyway?

CBL #35: Spider-Man 3 (2007)

July 24, 2016
The Summer of Spidey comes to a close with the often maligned 2007 film SPIDER-MAN 3! Sam Raimi may have disowned it, but are emo Peter Parker’s finger-guns and hair flips really so bad? Has this movie maybe aged a bit better than we expected, or are we right to leave it on the trash heap to be forgotten and rebooted a hundred times?

We also share our Top 3 Chicago Movies, and roundup some of the news out of San Diego Comic Con!

Spider-Man 2 (2004)

July 9, 2016
The Summer of Spidey continues this week with the 2004 sequel SPIDER-MAN 2! Sam Raimi and the whole gang is back and they look as tired as ever. This time Spider-Man faces off against the villainous Doctor Octopus, whose complete lack of foresight and attention to safety protocols causes CGI mayhem all over Chica — I mean, New York City. Is SPIDER-MAN 2’s reputation as one of the all-time great comic book movies deserved, or is this a case of nostalgia run amok? We discuss the film and recast it with all the grit and cocaine of old New York, plus a comic book movie news roundup!
