And in return, I ask her why she hadn’t seen Josie and the Pussycats, a 00’s revamp of the Archie comics characters turned into a meta narrative about pop culture at the time.

Filmwhys Extra #28 What is a Comic Book Movie?

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Filmwhys Extra episode, the episode between the episodes before I started my Filmwhys Spotlight project. But this idea came to mind a few weeks back and I just had to make it happen. So without further ado, The Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast crossover episode with two other comic book movie podcasts 24 Panels Per Second and Meanwhile… and their respective hosts Dru Jeffries, David Babbitt, and James Thompson where we ask a seemingly simple question: What is a Comic Book Movie

Filmwhys Spotlight: Supergirl

The third entry in my series shining a light on underappreciated superhero movies through the eyes of the fans that love them. This time around I’m shining the spotlight onto 1984’s Supergirl with the help of guests Jermaine Dickerson from Jermaine Design, Todd Liebenow from Forgotten Films, and Andrew Wickliffe from The Stop Button. I hope you’ll join us in taking a look at some of the brighter points of this movie that for many hasn’t stood the test of time, not that it even was ever successful in the first place.

Filmwhys #74 Face/Off and Bounty Killer

The Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast where my guest is Honor Knight from The Soiled Restroom Cinema podcast who asks me why I hadn’t seen Face/Off, one of director John Woo’s best American movies with amazing performances from Nicolas Cage and John Travolta acting like each other as much as possible. And in return, I ask him why he hadn’t seen Bounty Killer, a comic book movie from just a couple years ago that’s a low budget, high gore, action flick that’s a mix of Mad Max and Kill Bill with a lot more comedy and not nearly as much style.

Filmwhys #72 The Elephant Man and Avengers Confidential: Black Widow and Punisher

Welcome back to another episode of The Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast where my guest is Tony Cogan from Coogs Reviews who asks me why I hadn’t seen the Elephant Man, quite possibly David Lynch’s most accessible film to date about the life of Joseph Merrick from the point of view of doctor Frederick Treves. And in return, I ask him why he hadn’t seen Avengers Confidential: Black Widow and Punisher, the most recent and possibly last anime collaboration between Madhouse and Marvel after a handful of TV seasons centered around different characters and one of the very few Marvel movies to date including their animated offerings to have one of their female heroes in the title, even though she shares the spotlight with the Punisher.

The Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast where my guest is Stefan Gagne webnovelist whose work can be found at StefanGagne.com who asks me why I hadn’t seen Pink Floyd’s The Wall, a trippy and experimental musical with non-linear storytelling, amazing music, and mind-blowing visuals.
