ballerinas are slim, Johansen's curvy. I loved Speed Racer. Oh and the world will always need Superman!

nice, 2nd ep

I really enjoyed most of the feed. However, be aware that your length is a bit long. I think you guys pose great discussions, but holding people's interest that long is something you need to consider. The target audience you are more then likely trying to reach has the attention span of a puppy on heroine. Take this from someone who has done the research based on 2 years of doing an online radio station as well as YouTube videos. I really hope the best success for you all. That being said, you all sound like you truely give a fair and balanced discussion and you don't get caught up in sounding like "fans" but more like critics. Great work there. It's important to be subjective and pinpoint arguements that you know people listening will be able to relate to, but to still be able to keep your own voice. I'll continue to listen. πŸ™‚ P.S. A Superman reboot, fan or not, is sorely needed. Remember, Superman Returns was NOT a reboot. It was a sequel to Superman II. A return to origins would be great. It needs to feel different then the original, and it needs to feel like it's fresh, exciting, and current to today. I think touching on Superman's compassionate nature and love for humanity is key. Why does he feel that way? What caused him to feel that? What seperates Lois from others? So on, and so on, and so on...

Hey guys, liked this episode much better than the last one. However, I find the trailer audio quite annoying.

Very nice!

I love this. Why isn't it under the podcast section? Is this not official? I might get crucified for this but i like this more than /film cast. I think /film is getting longwinded and the quality of their podcasts are deteriorating. These guys have a spark and a fresh look that i have missed for a while not! Keep this up. Deserving of more hype.

I love you guys. Seriously. Your personal sections are fantastic and I dig the trailer audio as well. This episode is 1,000 times better than last week's, and I can't wait to see how it goes from here! And I agree with gustav about the /film podcast. (Is it wrong that theirs kind of bores me to tears?) Keep up the great work! I can't wait for next Tuesday! And I'm sure your Watchmen coverage will be awesome as well.

Oh goodness...Thanks for the compliment bltzie. I've really been a big fan of Superman as far back as I can remember. I think Richard Donner did a fantastic job with the original, and I feel that the Richard Donner cut of the sequel would have been far more interesting in the theater then what Richard Lester and his attempt at being humorous with Superman did. But...what Donner never truly touched on in a profound and meaningful way was Superman's deep love for humanity. It's really at the heart of the story. He loves humanity so dearly. His compassion runs longer then the Amazon during flood season. Why? It's an important question that needs to be answered in the films. Then, you have Lois. I can tell you, if the next Lois ends up being like Margot Kidder I think I'm going to be horribly disappointed. Whoever ends up helming the next Superman reboot has a real opportunity to have everyone watching this new installment fall as madly in love with Lois as Superman did. I don't think we'll understand what seperates her from the rest of humanity (the same humanity that Superman loves so much it nearly equals in power the rays of the yellow sun that makes him who he is) unless the writer, director, and actress playing Lois dig deep and find something in her that is unique, elegant, adhorable, compassionate, mysterious, thoughtful, etc. Well, as you can read. I have a passion for this character. I wish I could write the screenplay. πŸ˜‰ But, staying on topic, I appreciate these boys and the fact that even though they aren't huge fans they remain willing and hopeful for what may come out of the Superman reboot.

Quanah has a hard on for Superman. It's freakin me out. I could give a shit about Superman, but it'd be cool if Wachowski 1 and 2 did it. I'm game
