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.

EP27: Spider-Man 3! (w/ Nikki Boylan)

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, nobody can dance like Spider-Man! Nikki Boylan returns to finish up the Super Cinema Spider-Man trilogy. Host Ben Hamlin and his guest debate the intricacies of Sandman, Venom and Green Goblin, the illusion of character growth, and why the movie doesn't quite match up with its prequels. We also announce a brand new show: Reading Into It with Nikki Boylan. Our resident webhead is going to be on the Infinity Break channels a lot more often now. Stay tuned for more information.

EP26: Spider-Man 2, Again! (w/Nikki Boylan)

It's a rare episode for Super Cinema. We go back to the first movie we ever did for this show and revisit Spider-Man 2. This time host Ben Hamlin is joined by Spider-Man fanatic Nikki Boylan for a deeper look at the film that was so formative to them both. They talk Wonder Woman, Fables, Dragon Ball Z and so much more in this spectacular spider themed episode.
