What constitutes a classic? How do you view things through the perspective of shifts in time? Do people give passes on a film unjustifiably because of its legacy? That's what's at stake here in this title match of an episode, as its Crazy Chris vs. Donovan Grant in the case for Superman: The Movie! Is the film a truly great movie that survives the test of time, or does it fail badly? Are the gender politics and racial representations forgivable for its time? Does the wonky science actually make sense? And what of the lauded portrayals of Superman, Lois Lane and Lex Luthor? All this and more in a NO-HOLDS-BARRED comic book movie debate that can destroy all of fandom as we know it! Find a phone booth and take to the skies, and get to downloading!

That's one of the queries that challenges the gang as Stella leads the charge into discussing the final appearance of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in Logan. Is this the best X-film/Wolverine film? Does its bleak tone work against it? How does the timeline match up with the other movies? Stay until the end for a special announcement, and write in feedback at comicbookfilmrevue@yahoo.com!

Episode 23: Suicide Squad Review

Returning after a busy month's absence, Stella brings the show back with a bang in heading up the discussion on "Suicide Squad"! The second of the DCEU 2016 films to be received poorly by the masses, how did the Revue gang take to a film lead entirely by bad guys? Did Stella's coverage of the original comic series written by John Ostrander and Kim Yale excite her for the film going in? Did Don fully understand the plot? Who were Chris' favorite characters, and which ones failed to leave an impression? All this plus deadly Comic-Con adventures and a sneak peek into Don's upcoming new podcast! *NOTE* Apologies for the audio issues in the beginning

Episode 22: The Mask Review

S-s-s-s-SMOKIN'! It's another blast from the past as the Revue crew return to the 90s and talk about the 1994 Jim Carrey hit based on the Dark Horse Comic series. Which of the panel still likes the film and which one don't? The answer won't surprise, but what might are the list of random actors seen in other things, which Doctor Who most resembles Jim Carrey in features and performance, and the darker, more gruesome nature of the original comic! Toss your cheesy pajamas in the closet, pop on your bright yellow fedora, and get to downloading!
