This week, we take on the movie everyone seems to be talking about: ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, the four-hour behemoth currently streaming on HBO Max. Yes, we are aware this isn’t a summer film, but we covered the 2017 original, plus we are gluttons for punishment. So what did two guys who are the furthest thing from comic book fans think of Snyder’s ultimate version? Is this the one that finally won us over? Is Snyder a misunderstood genius? Does this film have a Nick Cave needle-drop? You may be surprised by a few of the answers. Co-host Luke sure does love a big epic soap opera, even when it is masquerading as a superhero flick.
On this week’s episode, we open up the time capsule that is 1994’s THE CROW, directed by Alex Proyas. The late Brandon Lee stars as a deceased rocker who has risen from the dead to take revenge on the men responsible for the murder of he and his fiancee. With an aesthetic best described as Hot Topic meets Marilyn Manson, with an extra layer of grime and sludge, a Goth-riffic time will certainly be had by all. And yes, this was one of the biggest hits of 1994. It was a complex time, we swear.
