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!

Episode #21: Captain America: Civil War Review

CHOOSE A SIDE! The gang joins in talking about the hottest comic book movie of the month based on the Marvel Comics miniseries of which they all have good/bad memories! Civil War sees the introduction of the Black Panther, the introduction of Spider-Man into the MCU, the return of the Winter Soldier plot from the previous Cap film, all while juggling the discussion of super hero accountability in a rift between Avengers Captain America and Iron Man! Which sides do the CBFR gang fall on? How does this compare to the source material? What did die-hard Spidey fans think of Tom Holland? Does this contrast with Dawn of Justice, or should it? All this plus Marvel Comics history via audio files from yesteryear!

Episode 20 - Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Review

The World's Finest grudge match has hit theaters and the Comic Book Film Revue has more than a few things to say about this much talked about movie! Don's not happy in the least, but what does Stella think? Chris doesn't think much of superhero films catering to kid audiences, but Josh has a different opinion due to his day job. Is the gang united with the rest of the 70% of film goers in saying this movie is a mess, or will Josh's analysis bring them to differing conclusions? And what of Ian Wilson, the Comic Reel-lief host who offers up specific talking points that ponder over the wider nature of comic book movies in general? Will his audio feedback (the show's first!) position the film in a more understandable light? Feel free to send the show any feedback via the new email address at comicbookfilmrevue@yahoo.com, and check out Don's initial thoughts when first seeing the film with friends at Michael Bailey's Views From the Longbox Podcast episode 228!

Episode 19: Ghost World Review

Ghost World, the 2001 film adaptation of the 1990s comic series by writer/artist Daniel Clowes, gives the CBFR gang their biggest challenge yet in that it's unlike anything they've come up against before! The four dive into a world of existential crisis, 50s diners, art classes and Adult shops and come out with varying opinions of the movie centering around two highly cynical teenagers. Which of the hosts are positive and which are negative? Which do they prefer, the comic or the film? How do they take to the first comic book movie in the podcast's history that stars Steve Buscemi? The only possible way to find out is to download!

Episode 18: Deadpool Review

The Merc with the Mouth gets his due in this month's episode headed up by Stella! She leads the gang in a discussion of expectations for the film during it's lead-up, background familiarity with the source material, thoughts on the film's love story and villains, and hopes for the hopeful sequel! Was everyone amused by Deadpool charms, or did some appreciate the movie more than others? Which actor keeps finding themselves in comic book genre media? How does the movie work as an X-Men film? These and more scintillating questions are answered, or questioned! So suit up, wolf down a chimichanga and get to downloading! (NOTE: Plz excuse some of the audio inconsistencies)

Episode 17: Iron Man 3 Review

The CBFR gang is back, and for the first review of 2016 Chris leads the team in discussing the debatable 2013 Marvel Phase Two opener Iron Man 3! Lots of meaty talk is had going from topics including Stark's characterization throughout the film, characters new and old, the film's tone and most expectantly the Mandarin! Does this movie finish off Tony Stark's character arc successfully? Is the mental challenge a suitable enough demon for RDJ to contend against? Can the gang manage a complete discussion on the film without having read the source material? Suit up and get to downloading!

Episode 16: The Peanuts Movie Review

Throwing a curve-ball at the Revue panelists for the Winter of 2015, Josh leads up talk on the latest entry in a long running and classic franchise: The Peanuts Movie! How will the gang tackle a film that doesn't involve gaudy costumes, violence or general inhumanity? What's the background in getting this film made and was it against the late Charles Shultz's wishes? Does the tone jive with the memories of the cartoons from yesteryear? All this plus mile-a-minute edutainment from the worlds of copyright law, etymology, modern children sensibilities and more!

Fantastic Four (2015) Review

After a critical mauling and utter failure to perform at the Box Office, Josh Trank's Fantastic Four has one more gauntlet to endure before it is quietly lost in the annals of history...being discussed on the Comic Book Film Revue! The Fantabulous Foursome of Josh, Stella, Chris and Donovan have much to say to both the film and the online community who was so eager to condemn the movie before its release. But as for the movie itself, is it worthy of the hate it's gotten? Was the cast good or bad? Why can't any of the film adaptations get Dr. Doom right?  All this plus more comic book history and theater experiences! Light the "4" Signal and get to downloading!
