Just say no to Allegiant as we instead review In a Valley of Violence, Slash (both premiered at SXSW) and You’re Killing Me. And we discuss the highs and lows of the Batman and Superman movie franchises.
Bored as Hell Podcast - This week's episode
In a Valley of Violence – a great, classic Western with modern sensibilities and a really cute dog. Ethan Hawke, John Travolta, Karen Gillan are all at the top of their game. Great fun. Andy gives it 8.5/10.
Slash – a movies set against the backdrop of teenage relationships, sexual awakening, and slash/fic– the genre of fan fiction that takes often antagonist characters and puts them in homosexual erotic scenes. While the language and content gets naughty and saucy, it rarely crosses the line and is mostly played for laughs. Also a 8.5/10
You’re Killing Me – vapid YouTube wannabe George has a new boyfriend, who it turns out is killing their friends. He’s too dense to figure it out. The script thinks it’s catty and clever, but it’s dumb. Adam gives it 2/10.
Our favorite Batman/Superman movies:
Adam is #TeamBatman and his fav is Mask of the Phantasm. Kevin Conroy is our Batman. Mark Hamill as the Joker.
Andy is #TeamSuperman and recommends The Donner Cut of Superman II. How Richard Donner was fired from the movie. Why Richard Lester camped it up. How this makes more sense.
