SmashCut Podcast - Episode 13

52:41 minutes (36.18 MB)

This week, we celebrate some cinematic bad-asses, from the tommy gun maniacs in Michael Mann's Public Enemies to the quintessential Man With No Name (or Three Men With Three Different Names.)

*NOTE*: This episode contains music from merge recording artist She and Him. Our only intent is to promote this artist in the context that it is movie related (one of the members is a movie starlet.) To discourage piracy we have kept the file at a measly 96kbps (and in mono I might add) which would hardly be worth your while to keep as an original. We do not own any of the rights to this song. If you enjoyed the song, please run to your local independent record shop and buy this album immediately. It will be worth your while.

Comic Movies

What's your take on all the comic book movies? Dawn of a new, glorious day - or - go read the friggen books you illiterate bastard?

Erik Ellickson

Who needs a screenwriter or a script when a producer can easily browse through the comic book rack at Circle K?

Andrew Kemp

It's a blip, just like westerns, pirate movies, space operas, and a bunch of other genres that have peaked and dwindled over the years. And just like those genres, the superhero movie is pushing through its natural cycle. They had some awkward first tries, were perfected as a formula, had at least one genuine classic come through ("The Dark Knight"), and are now being deconstructed, parodied, and otherwise torn apart for new material. Eventually we'll all move on to the next big genre, and superhero movies will become box office poison once more, and some filmmaker will produce a documentary about the history of comic book cinema that will play on IFC forever, but our kids' kids will look at superhero flicks with the same yawn with which we looked at "boring" black and white mysteries when we were young and dumb. And then we'll sit wheezing in our easy chairs, complaining to anyone who will listen that they'll never make a movie half as good as "Spider-Man 2" again and that "starlets" today don't have the class and charm Jennifer Garner had in Elektra's left pinkie, and our families will placate and patronize us until we die, fondly remembering when good guys could be good and the bad guys blew up banks and kids still looked for entertainment in 32 four color pages of joy and a subsequent two-hour adaptation.

...... Too dark? Comix are kool.

Jason Norred

Andy.. even as an old man I will never look back fondly on Jennifer Garner as Electra. She's not even Greek. (That was a Geekin' joke for those of you who have not bought the DVD - oh and maybe you should do that.. slacker)

I've No Need For A Metal RoboCop Poster, Eh?

Why was I not informed of this? This is an example of something you'd call me immediately upon discovery, like in that "house is on fire" frantic tone or some such.

And the winner of the MondoTees/AICN Metal Tyler Stout RoboCop poster is...

I don't know what I would have designed but I would have won.
