Every so often we watch a film that hits all the right notes and we can’t fully articulate why. This is one of those films. Kickstarted into production and streaming on Netflix, Kung Fury is only thirty minutes long and somehow that leads to an hour+ episode where we discuss everything from why the eighties really were the best decade in recorded history to why Hitler should be the end-game antagonist in every film ever. Enjoy.
The gang is all back together to talk about something in their usual wheelhouse; gender politics and Marvel adaptations. Using Netflix’s Jessica Jones as a focal point Jake, Alva, and Meredith discuss how the Marvel brand has cultivated itself into a unified juggernaut that seemingly understands the power they wield and how they might use that power in the future.
Marvel must have some raging Catholic guilt over the cinematic sin that was 2003’s Daredevil so they’ve made their penance with a new Netflix series featuring the “Man without Fear.” How did it turn out? Annie Bulloch of 8th Dimension Comics and Isaiah Broussard of Transyltown join Jake, Alva, and Meredith to talk about the show at length! As always, spoilers abound.
