Bubbawheat guesting

As I haven’t been as active as I should be here lately, I wanted to make a quick post before I finish writing up my long-past-due review of Avengers: Infinity War which I did watch on opening weekend, to share a couple podcasts that I guested on in the past couple weeks. First up is a frequent haunt of mine where I discussed the previously mentioned movie over at the Lambcast, though sadly (not too sadly considering my expectations for the movie) I never did get around to watching Bad Kids of Crestview Academy before having to return it to the library, and a week late at that. But besides that, I also made a guest appearance on a fairly new podcast out there called Men N Tights where we discussed the recent superhero movie news like the Ant Man and the Wasp trailer, Deadpool 2, before getting around to the main discussion where we speculate where the future of the MCU in general is going. Be sure to check it out and subscribe. Meanwhile, I’ll hopefully be back quite soon with my full, written review of Avengers: Infinity War and more movies soon after. Until next time, this has been Bubbawheat for Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights.

Tank Girl Comet TV Giveaway

It’s been a little while since I’ve been active here, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to host a giveaway with a prize pack including some Tank Girl goodies. Tank Girl is one of those cult comic book movies that isn’t exactly the best movie, but can be a ton of fun to watch, especially with Lori Petty’s performance in the lead role. Thanks to Comet TV for providing the opportunity to host this giveaway.

My Life in Film pt 2

I’m back with the rest of my life in film, starting off with my first year of college on through this very year that we’ve just started. If you missed my last post, I’m going through every year that I’ve been alive and sharing with you my favorite film from that year as well as my favorite superhero or comic book film at least when they’re not one and the same. And these are all based on what I’ve logged in at Letterboxd and what they have listed as the movie’s release date, so if a year is wrong, blame them and not me. Anyways on to the list!

My Life in Film pt 1

Recently a movie meme was hitting the rounds on Facebook and Twitter, I’ve seen it as both My Life in Film or #ThisIsMyFilm. The basics is that you choose your favorite movie from each year starting with the year you were born. Some years are harder than others, and doing the list myself it made me realize how few movies I had seen that were released in certain years in the early 80’s. And since I haven’t been posting much here recently, I thought I would expand my list and also include my favorite superhero or comic book movie from each year, aside from those few years where my favorite was a superhero movie. And FYI, the release dates are according to Letterboxd as that’s what I’m using to browse what films I’ve listed as having seen in each year. Thanks to Le0pard13 for the inspiration to turn this into a blog post. And despite not being as old as him, I’ve still decided to split this up into two blog posts. This one starts off with the year I was born and goes through the year I graduated high school.

FTMN Book Club – March

FTMN Book Club – 30 Days of Night

Typically, I’ve tried to make March into a Graphic Horror month where I take a look at horror movies based on comics. But except for one last one that I had missed, possibly more, I’ve covered them all already. So instead, I thought it would be a good idea to make the book of the month be a horror comic. 30 Days of Night was suggested and I thought that would be a perfect way to start things off after February’s odd novel/comic hybrid. And as a bonus, if you are signed up for Hoopla Digital, the comics are free to lend.

FTMN Book Club – Diary of a Teenage Girl

For the first edition of this book club, I’m taking a look at a book that I had already started reading before deciding to start this series. And even then, I only barely finished the book before the end of the month. The Diary of a Teenage Girl is a little of what you might expect and a lot of what you wouldn’t. It’s formatted to resemble a teenager’s diary and in fact it actually does contain excerpts of the author’s actual teenage diary combined with additional entries to fill out the entire story, though there is no distinction on which ones are real and which ones are new. It also combines those diary entries with pictures and comics that enhance and in several cases further the story. But what makes this book unique is the frank descriptions of teenage sex and drugs from a very teenage point of view.

FTMN Book Club – February

I’m going to start off by saying that I’m not entirely sure how this is going to work, but since I’ve decided to start taking a look at some actual graphic novels in addition to just the movies that are based on them, I thought I would try and make this more of a communal thing. Since this is the inaugural edition, I am admittedly being lazy by choosing the book that I’m already in the process of reading. The Diary of a Teenage Girl, an Account in Words and Pictures by Phoebe Gloeckner.

Superhero Podcast Review: Super Movie Studies

It’s time yet again for another round of my superhero podcast reviews. This time around I’ve chosen another podcast at random, this time it was via a search on Stitcher for “Superhero”. I specifically chose this podcast out of the list of shows that came up because it most looked like the type of show that I’m really looking for with these reviews. A podcast that looks at a different superhero movie each episode and analyzes it in detail. If you’re unfamiliar with this segment, I will break down the podcast through a set of stats, evaluate it on my superhero criteria, and ultimately judge it with a verdict of: Subscribe, Unsubscribe, or Selected Episodes. And if you run or listen to a superhero podcast that you think I would enjoy and would like to see it on a future installment of my Superhero Podcast Review, please drop me a line and let me know about it.

Superhero Podcast Review: Jake and Tom Conquer the World

While I haven’t been watching as many movies lately, I’m still listening to just as many podcasts and finding new ones all the time. This is another case where I did a #PodernFamily search to see what came up, though I’ve interacted quite a few times with these guys on twitter before giving them a listen. It’s another instance where it’s a bit of a stretch to call them a “superhero podcast” but comics and superheroes appeared to be a significant part of at least half of their episodes so I went with it. And again, if you run or listen to a superhero podcast that I haven’t reviewed here yet, I’d love it if you shared it with me to review in a future installment with my grading of: Subscribe, Unsubscribe, or Selected Episodes. On to the review!

Superhero Podcast Review: Chimpions

Welcome back to another requested edition of my Superhero Podcast review where I take a listen to a superhero-centric podcast and let you know what I think about it. This edition’s podcast is a very fresh one so if you’re interested it won’t take too long to catch up, but there’s always a learning curve going into podcasting so keep that in mind as well. Also, this one will be breaking my format even more than the last time where this podcast doesn’t discuss superhero movies at all, but I’ll get into that more in the main review. As usual, if you run or listen to a superhero-themed podcast that you think I might enjoy taking a look at, be sure to leave a comment, write me an e-mail at Bubbawheat@msn.com or hit me up on Twitter @Bubbawheat.
