In this week’s installment, you get two movie reviews for the price of one as Sean “Hollywood” Hunting and I explore both the 2006 Richard Donner Cut of Superman II and the 2013 disaster-comedy, Man of Steel.

Fire up the Batsignal, because Batman (1989) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean ‘Hollywood’ Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: Batman (1989) is an uneven, sometimes idiosyncratic film that in some sense set the pattern for later superhero movies, for good or for ill. Although the Nolan films have eclipsed the work of Tim Burton and his cast and crew in the pop culture consciousness, this version of Batman was instrumental in reintroducing the Dark Knight to an entire generation of movie-goers.

Ruining Katherin’s Childhood (Again)

Hold onto your Omega Hedrons, because Supergirl is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring the return of Katherin “the Great”.

Review in a Nutshell:  A super hero film from a more innocent time, Supergirl seems painfully unsophisticated by modern standards.  Nonetheless it has some interesting imagery and a plot that can best be described as “completely bonkers”.

This movie contains:

Drunken Wizards.

KILLDOZER!

A Black Magic Woman.

This is Not an April Fool’s Joke.

Strap on your cape, because Superman IV: The Quest for Peace is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  Far from being a ‘betrayal’ or ‘the worst Superman movie’, Superman IV: The Quest for Peace is a movie with big ideas and a tiny, tiny budget.  It remains the favorite Superman of both cohosts, whose taste as we all know is impeccable.

This movie contains:

Amazing volcanic special effects!

RAWR!

WTF?

ERRATA:  The Jackie Chan movie we mention in which Jackie Chan dresses up as Chun Li from Streetfighter is actually the live-action Hong Kong version of City Hunter.

W.W.B.D.?

Polish up your grappling hooks, because Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring the official return of Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  Despite a few flaws in the production values, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is one of the most respected and beloved adaptations of the Batman comic books.  Because of the mature themes it explores, it is considered by many to be the apex of the Batman: The Animated Series cartoon series.

“Kneel Before Zod!”

Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, Superman II is The Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the poster above or the movie’s title to download our review of the film, featuring the return of Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

PLEASE NOTE: Sean’s sound is going to be a little off until we can arrange a better recording set-up for him. Please bear with us.

Review in a Nutshell: Cobbled together from elements filmed by two drastically different directors, Superman II is one of those films that we loved as a kid that doesn’t hold up well when viewed with the eyes of an adult. Some of the fight scenes and special effects are still nifty, though.
