MattyLovesPodcast EPISODE ELEVEN: “The First Batman Episode”

09/18/2015

This week Matt and “Dr.” Tom have their first recorded discussion on BATMAN.

They both were first introduced to Bats through the now-dubbed “BATMAN ’66.”

Matt digs FRANK GORSHIN a lot.

Tom had the Batman MEEGO play-set as a kid.

Batman was EVERYWHERE in 1989.

They both agree how much influence THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS has on the modern day Batman mythos.

Of course Matt and “Dr.” Tom weigh in on the long-running SUPERMAN VS. BATMAN debate. (No mention of the new film.)

Tom breaks down the basic BATMAN PLOT STRUCTURE, and nails it.

All of this and many more things Batman-related.

MattyLovesPodcast EPISODE TEN: “At The Midnite Movies”

09/12/2015

Matt and “Dr.” Tom are back once again!

Tom’s read “MARVEL KNIGHTS: THE SENTRY.”

Matt’s reading JEFF LEMIRE’S “PLUTONA” from IMAGE COMICS.

Name five INHUMANS.

Matt and “Dr.” Tom discuss “MIDNITE MOVIES.” What are the genres and subgenres? What does it take to be deemed a “Midnite Movie?” (If anything sounds unfamiliar, just watch the films (all of them).

CULT FILMS are a gas. Tom misses THOMAS VIDEO in Detroit. It was “Mondo Bizzaro.”

MATT SINGER’S article on the TEN TYPES OF MIDNITE MOVIES: http://blogs.indiewire.com/criticwire/the-ten-types-of-midnight-movies

ERASERHEAD really messed/messes with Tom.

How does 2001 SPACE ODYSSEY make you want to do the drugs?

Matt needs to watch THE ROOM.

We all need to watch MEL BROOKS’ films more often.

ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is the be-all, end-all Midnite Movie. (SUSAN SARANDON–me-ow.)

Enjoy!

MattyLovesPodcast EPISODE NINE: “Force Friday”

09/04/2015

Matt went to Target early Friday morning in celebration of STAR WARS #FORCEFRIDAY and dropped some coin on a few of the new toys.

Matt is already speculating the unfortunate/bittersweet journey of POE DAMERON.

Star Wars definitely had a presence at SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2015 (Matt misunderstood Tom’s query).

Does the original trilogy play back solid in monochrome? Matt thinks so.

Tom thinks Matt does a “serviceable” BILLY DEE WILLIAMS.

Star Wars has the best ships in the history of anything. Tom digs the SLAVE I; Matt, DASH RENDAR’S OUTRIDER.

Tom once played bass in a band called Chewbacca. We go ‘behind the music.’

Enjoy! And May The Force Be With You!

MattyLovesPodcast EPISODE SIX: “The History of Comics According to Matt and ‘Dr.’ Tom, Part 2”

08/07/2015

In the mid-90s, did anything substantial happen in comics story-wise?

Matt still digs the original AGE OF APOCALYPSE.

Check out the SUPERMAN run by JEPH LOEB and ED McGUINNESS.

KINGDOM COME still plays.

Tom has bad luck with comic book collections.

Matt and Tom wish to be friends with KEVIN SMITH on a first name basis. Read: DAREDEVIL: GUARDIAN DEVIL.

Would you listeners consider 2003-10 (or maybe even now) to be the “event era” of comic book history?

Matt and Tom run through their most recent years of reading and collecting comics.

ENJOY!
