Superhero Podcast Review: Hero Movie Podcast

This is the first in a series that I’ve been considering doing for a while now. I tend to listen to quite a few podcasts including several movie podcasts that specifically focus on superhero or comic book movies. You know, kind of like this site. I’ll be starting off with podcasts that I have listened to, and as I run out of those, I’ll be expanding to other new podcasts that I discover, or if anyone would like to submit a podcast for me to review – either from a listener or a podcaster, just leave a comment, tag me on Twitter or send me an e-mail at Bubbawheat@msn.com. I will be giving my thoughts based on my personal preference, but will also try to break down the podcast based on several different categories so that you may be able to determine if it is a podcast that you would be interested in as well.

Filmwhys #70 Pink Floyd’s The Wall and The Phantom

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. And in return, I ask him why he hadn’t seen 1996’s The Phantom starring Billy Zane, the campy comic book movie that advertised how he would “Slam Evil!”

Filmwhys Spotlight: Hulk

The first episode of Filmwhys Spotlight where I showcase an underappreciated superhero film and talk to the fans who enjoy it. Kicking off this series is 2003’s Hulk directed by Ang Lee which is generally unloved when compared to the more recent Marvel Cinematic Universe films, but has some redeemable moments in it.

Joining me in this episode are John Turman, one of the screenwriters of the film, Paul Hawkins from the Blokebusters Podcast, Hermano DeSilva from the First Time Watchers Podcast, and Nick Piers author of the Armadillo Mysteries who can be found at NickPiers.com.

Filmwhys #69 The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and Wanted

The Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast where my guest is Kristina Dijan from Speakeasy who asks me why I hadn’t seen the Treasure of the Sierra Madre, a captivating tale of suspense and suspicion from director John Huston and a rare villainous turn for Humphrey Bogart. In return, I ask her why she hadn’t seen Wanted, a visually impressive and violent comic book adaptation where people and cars do impossible things years before the Fast and the Furious franchise made them commonplace.

Filmwhys #68 Grave of the Fireflies and Gotham Knight

Episode 68 of the Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast where my guest is Andrew Robinson from G-Man Reviews who asks me why I hadn’t seen Grave of the Fireflies, one of the greatest war movies of all time and one of the best Studio Ghibli anime not directed by Hayao Miyazaki. And in return, I ask him why he hadn’t seen Gotham Knight, a more experimental anime anthology featuring Batman and stories that took place in between Batman Begins and the Dark Knight.

Filmwhys Casting Call for Fans of Obscure & Unloved Superhero Movies

Hello fellow superhero movie fans! I’m beginning a new series of Filmwhys Extra podcast episodes and I am looking for guests. Each episode of this series will take a look at a single superhero movie through the eyes of the fans that love it. Now, this would be an easy thing to do for films like Iron Man, Spider-Man, or the Dark Knight. No, what I am aiming for are the more obscure and cult films like Griff the Invisible, Tank Girl, or Sky High. That as well as the films that aren’t typically well regarded by movie fans like the Fantastic Four, Ang Lee’s Hulk, Supergirl, or Daredevil. I’m currently building a guest list and hope to record and post the first episode by the end of April. What I’m looking for are people, preferably with some podcasting experience or at least a microphone that’s not embedded into a laptop who want to talk about one of these films. Once I get around to one of those movies, I will start contacting guests to set up recording times, generally no longer than 15-20 minutes. I would especially like to include as many female voices as I can since it often feels like podcasting is dominated by male voices. If you are interested, leave a comment below mentioning what film or films you would be interested in discussing, or you can e-mail me at Bubbawheat@msn.com, and please share this post with anyone you know who might be interested in joining as well.

Filmwhys #67 Notorious and The Shadow

Episode 67 of the Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast where my guest is Kristen Lopez from Journeys in Classic Film among various other sites who asks me why I hadn’t seen Notorious, one of Alfred Hitchcock’s great tales of intrigue and suspense with Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant. In return, I ask her why she hadn’t seen The Shadow, the 90’s revamp of the classic radio drama starring Alec Baldwin set in the 20’s with an oddly classic Hollywood feel to it though it was set in New York.

Filmwhys #66 Cloverfield and Superman and the Mole Men

Episode 66 of the Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast where my guest is James Thompson from the Meanwhile… podcast who asks me why I hadn’t seen Cloverfield, one of the first twists on the found footage style of filmmaking and an attempt to give the US a giant monster worthy of Godzilla from producer JJ Abrams. And in return, I ask him why he hadn’t seen Superman and the Mole Men, the first feature length superhero film ever made and the precursor to the long running Adventures of Superman starring George Reeves.

Filmwhys #65 Black Dynamite and Hancock

The Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast where my guest is Adrian King from Adrian Has Issues who asks me why I hadn’t seen Black Dynamite, the pitch perfect send up of 70’s Blaxploitation films made in 2009 by Michael Jai White. And in return, I ask him why he hadn’t seen Hancock, the film where Will Smith plays Superman if he were a jerk who drank too much and didn’t remember who he was until he randomly found his wife who was also super powered but was hiding it all this time. It’s weird, but the first half works. Also a bonus to bring things back just a little bit to Black History month with a double shot of Black cinema even though Will Smith is the only Black character in Hancock.
