http://www.spreaker.com/user/o... download (audio/mpeg, 0.00Mb)

Description: Superman returned in 2006's Superman Returns...but he didn't return for long. With the 10th anniversary of this Bryan Singer film Bruce and Larry decided to examine this odd entry in the canon of superhero films. Brandon Routh, Kate Bosworth, James Marsden, and Kevin Spacey star in this not-quite-a-sequel to the Richard Donner Superman films. Superman has been gone for five years, and returns to a surprising new world. Heavily influenced by the earlier Superman films, this movie attempts to look back to the past, while trying to pave the way for a new series of films. This reboot attempt didn't lead to any new films, but instead we got Man of Steel in another reboot in 2013 and Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which comes out today. Why did Superman Returns, fail to return in another sequel? What works with this film? What doesn't? How much nostalgia is too much? Which actor would have been better in a marquis role?

http://www.spreaker.com/user/o... download (audio/mpeg, 0.00Mb)

Description: Synchronicity is defined as a meaningful coincidence. Synchromysticism is the theory that ties synchronicity with mysticism as it relates to art and media. Esoteric symbols and sequences in films often resonate with current events, seemingly predicting those events with foreknowledge. What's going on here?

This week Bruce and Larry explore a couple of specific instances of synchromystic theory. We look at 9-11 sychronicities in the 1985 Robert Zemeckis film Back to the Future, as well as Jack Kirby's Gulf War 1 and 2 Predictions in the pages of OMAC and Kamandi.
