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!

Darkness… No parents… Super rich… Must be another Batman movie! But this is no ordinary Batman movie: it’s THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE, the highly anticipated sequel/spin-off to the 2014 runaway hit THE LEGO MOVIE. But is everything awesome this time around, or should Lego Batman stick to the supporting roles? And how does this film fit into the canon of Batman movies alongside esteemed entries from Nolan and Burton? We attempt to answer these very questions and also give some predictions for next week’s Oscars ceremony!

Campy, kid-friendly villains, a big pop soundtrack, and a new actor playing the caped crusader… But is it as bad as we remember, or is this an underrated gem?
