Guesting at the Matineecast, aka “The Circle is Complete”
While I do get the occasional chance to make a guest appearance on other people’s podcasts, I don’t always feel the need to share them here on this site, especially when I get the rare chance to talk about movies that aren’t superhero movies. But this past weekend I got the chance to make an appearance on the podcast that really inspired my Filmwhys podcast, especially as far as his format goes where he has a single guest, opens up with some movie-related questions before digging into some no-nonsense talk about a new release and two other movies that connect to the new release in some way, one chosen by himself and the other chosen by his guest. If you have listened to Filmwhys, I’m sure you can tell which parts I cribbed off of his notes and where I spun it in my own direction. Anyway, since I did make it out to the theater opening weekend for Guardians of the Galaxy, I was happy to come onto his show to discuss the new release. And for my Other Side, I chose a James Gunn written superhero movie that’s even more lesser known than Super, which is the Specials. So make sure you go and visit theMatinee.ca for Matineecast episode 118 and hear our thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy, the Specials, and some other movie from another director known for superhero movies about a group of misfits banding together. You’ve probably never heard of it.
