We’re still working on getting the audio better, but a ragged labor of love is just right for talking about Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man and where the MCU stands at the official end of Phase Two. STEPHANIE BROWN* ALERT:We remain fanboys of Feige’s Moviehouse of Ideas. We also start griping about DC Comics since the New 52 relaunch. As you do.
*She still remains Spoiler in our hearts.

Join us won’t you?

In this episode, I am joined by returning guest Steve Bruns to discuss the 2014 film, Nightcrawler!

It’s a fun discussion and along with this film we discuss some of the other top films of 2014 including Bridman and The Imitation Game. Check it out!

On the newest episode of GeekFlashback Hector and Cameron return to the year 2003 to discuss Mark Steven Johnson’s Daredevil. Hector watched the Director’s Cut, Cameron the theatrical cut. How does it hold up? Is it as bad as everyone says or is this a misunderstood masterpiece?
From there the discussion moves to the new Netflix series. A whole lot of Matt Murdock here.
