Man of Steel (2013) starts to look a lot better with age, particularly for those who didn't love Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). The Filmlosophers review high points and low from the initial installment of the DC cinematic/expanded universe and ask "Would You Rather?" about two controversial story elements.
Add in news about Alice Through the Looking Glass, the just-announced "Alien Day" 2016 and The Lego Batman Movie, and you've got a full show. Class is in session!
Justice is dawning. The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva and Chad Riley, welcome Videogame BANG! host Cory Vincent and YouTube's Sean Long for a detailed analysis of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This episode includes both non-spoiler and spoiler reviews, so listen carefully if you don't want to know too much too soon. The crew also discusses the possibility of Daisy Ridley as Lara Croft in a new Tomb Raider franchise, Zootopia's race to $600 million at the global box office, and Harrison Ford's advice to actors hoping to become the next Han Solo.
The Filmlosophers wax nostalgic about a beloved multimedia franchise that's been going strong for nearly 70 years with an in-depth review of The Peanuts Movie (2015). Stick around near the end of the review for a "Conspiracy Theory" installment that seeks to answer the question: Who is the little red-haired girl?
Eddie and Chad also discuss their initial reactions to the final Captain America: Civil War trailer (featuring Spiderman), changes to the Star Trek: Beyond cast in post-production and Paramount backing out of U.S. distribution for The Little Prince.
The Filmlosophers share feedback on the first trailer for the new, all-female Ghostbusters film, provide opinions about the casting of J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon in the Justice League film and give a gut reaction to the newly unveiled Captain America: Civil War character posters before diving deep into a review of Terminator: Salvation. They wrap the episode with an "Altered Reality" segment that wrestles with the implications of changing the end of Salvation so that John Connor dies instead of Marcus Wright.
