EP32: Wonder Woman!

Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman. Now the world is ready for you, and the wonders you can do. Make a hawk a dove, Stop a war with love, Make a liar tell the truth. Wonder Woman!

It's a sensational episode of Super Cinema as Nikki and Ben talk about the latest blockbuster to grace the big screens. She's beauty, she's grace, she'll punch you square in the face: It's Wonder Woman. We talk about the mixed metaphors of Diana's journey, her character and the way Wonder Woman establishes a bigger, brighter universe for the DC movies. With bonus content on modern musical scores and plenty of comics talk about SURPRISE Spider-Man, you know you're in for a Super Cinema treat!

EP31: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!

It's a very merry Marvel episode of Super Cinema. Nikki Boylan and Ben Hamlin tackle the latest Marvel blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. We talk about its blatant racism, it's negative character development and how it still managed to awe us with its visuals and make us cry over a raccoon. All of this after a lengthy discussion about too many Spider-Man trailers. In our comics section, we talk about Deadpool and the Tom King Vision run, which Ben finished - FINALLY.

EP30: Guardians of the Galaxy!

Guardians of the Galaxy

Zot || Cloak and Dagger || Wonder Woman

Just how well done can a movie about a talking tree, a raccoon and alien death gods be? Well, it turns out that we're "Hooked on a Feeling" about Guardians of the Galaxy. Groaaan, I know. Nikki and Ben talk cosmic world building, male immaturity in comedy, and the smashing soundtrack that drew fans to a movie filled with absurd galactic concepts. We follow this up with the Cloak and Dagger's new trailer and the latest Wonder Woman spot. Plus Ben starts re-reading a childhood classic: Scott McCloud's Zot.

EP29: Fantastic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer

It's a very apocalyptic episode of Super Cinema as our movie vigilantes tackle both Fantastic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer and the new Thor trailer. Between Ragnarok and the Coming of Galactus, we're a little scared of what's to come, but we can tell you for a fact that Silver Surfer is actually an alright movie. But does it stand up to Nikki's bold statement that it's better than the first Fantastic Four movie? That and so much more in this action packed end of the world Super Cinema Special.

EP28: Fantastic Four (2005)!

This week on Super Cinema, co-hosts Nikki and Ben cover the 2005 Fantastic Four movie. Here's the thing, while Ben absolutely adores Marvel's first family, this film is not.. very.. good. So we spend most of our time talking Mr. Fantastic, the Thing and trailers for other, better movies. We talk Justice League, Spider-Man Homecoming, and all about the comics we've read this week while avoiding conversations about how boring this version's Doctor Doom is.

Bonus conversations about Suicide Squad and superhero costumes will be posted on our Patreon later this week! 

Nikki's new show, Reading Into It, has launched on our YouTube channel.
