About

My real name is Nathan Withrow, but ever since my parents got AOL 3.1 and I decided that I wanted to choose a screen name/e-mail address that didn’t have a number in it I’ve gone by Bubbawheat online. It’s been almost 20 years now and it’s still as original as it was back then and I’m loathe to give it up. I’ve been a big fan of comic and superhero movies all my life pretty much. I’ve enjoyed comic books, but I always preferred seeing the superhero genre on the big or small screen. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that Batman: The Animated Series has been one of my all time favorites, and that’s the era when I grew up, watching that and all the superhero cartoons that came shortly before and shortly after that series, and I enjoyed them all. I also watched and enjoyed all the live action TV shows at the time, even the bad ones like The Flash and M.A.N.T.I.S. as well as the good ones like Lois and Clark. I’m not always as critical as some people might be, I know crap when I see it, but I generally back it up with specifics rather than just calling it crap, and when I see something I like in what many people consider a bad movie I’ll be sure to point that out too.

For as many age-appropriate movies that her interest will allow, I will be watching the movie with my 10 year old daughter Jena and posting her thoughts about the movie and the superheroes.

There’s several ways you can get a hold of me to ask me a question or if you want to just keep posted on what movies I’m watching that aren’t superhero related. Of course my favorite way to be contacted is just by leaving a comment on any page. I read them all and reply to most of them.

Anyway, the next best way to contact me is via Twitter where I’m @Bubbawheat, or you can click the little twitter icon right at the top of the page.

If you’d prefer to E-mail me directly, it’s easy enough to send it to my online name @msn.com

Categories of Posts

Movie reviews are generally categorized by decade, they are also listed in the Marvel or DC category when appropriate. I’m currently attempting to find and review every superhero and comic book related movie ever made and the more I watch, the more I realize are out there.

Filmwhys: The bi-weekly podcast that I started to help me branch out and share my thoughts on non-superhero movies. There’s a ton of classic and popular movies I’ve never seen before, and there are plenty of people out there that haven’t seen a lot of superhero movies. So every other week my guest chooses a movie I’ve never seen before, and I choose a superhero movie that they’ve never seen before and we talk about what we thought of them.

TV Nights: These are the posts dealing with superheroes and comic book adaptations in TV series form, either episode-by-episode as they happen, or full season recaps for older shows, though all future TV posts will be on my sister site Channel: Superhero.

Superhero Shorts: I feature a short film featuring superheroes and also interview the creator about the film. They are generally fan films but range from parody, to serious, to music videos. Anything goes as long as it features a superhero and isn’t just a re-edit of an existing work.

Almost Super: These are movies that I can’t really call a “Superhero” movie, though there’s still some connection to the rest of the movies that I review on this site, whether it’s a heroic action movie, or looks visually like it was taken off the pages of a comic book.

Graphic Horror:Β This is the category that I use for any and all horror movies. Some of them would also qualify under the similar “Almost Super” tag, but I also use this tag for horror movies adapted from horror comic books.

Follow Friday: I spotlight someone else’s blog, let you know why they are a blog worth following, and get the writer to answer a few questions about movies, blogging, and whatever else. Unfortunately, this has dropped off a few years ago and many of the sites featured are now inactive, but they are still available to read in the archives.

Blog: And finally, I will once in a while do something more random like a top 10 list, a review of a superhero novel, my thoughts on superhero movies in general, or a more personal update. Pretty much anything that doesn’t fit into one of the above categories goes here.
