This week on The Collider Podcast, we're joined by Haleigh Foutch to talk about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. During our spoiler-filled discussion, we talk about the film's strengths and weaknesses, the plotlines that don't make sense, how it relates to other films in the DC Extended Universe, how it relates to director Zack Snyder's other films, Snyder's seeming disdain for Superman, why we're still looking forward to future DCEU movies, and much more.
This week on The Collider Podcast, we talk about the films of Zack Snyder--Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, Sucker Punch, and Man of Steel (our conversation on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be next week). Look at his strengths and weaknesses as a director, break down each movie, talk more about Owls of Ga'Hoole than any person other than the ones who actually made it, and more.
This week on The Collider Podcast, we talk about 10 Cloverfield Lane and yesterday's news that Disney is moving ahead with Indiana Jones 5 with Steven Spielberg directing and Harrison Ford starring. With Cloverfield Lane, we talk about the project's development, the plot's twists and turns, when it means to be a "Cloverfield" movie, the work of producer J.J. Abrams and more. When it comes to Indy 5, we discuss whether a new movie is a good idea, if it could redeem the franchise, Spielberg's blockbuster streak, and more. And as usual, we finish up with our recommendations.
This week on The Collider Podcast, we talk about the winners of the 88th Academy Awards. We speculate about why voters voted the way they did, what kind of awards season it was, the level of uncertainty in the Best Picture race, and much more. We also get to our first mailbag and answer questions like "What makes a picture 'thin?'" and "What makes a movie great?" Finally, we finish up with our recommendations.
