Silver Linings Playback 13 – Hellboy (2019)

Subscribe:

Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre are continuing their quest to watch maligned movies in hopes of finding a silver lining.

For the month of July, they are watching maligned superhero movies.

They end the month with the 2019 Hellboy reboot starring David Harbour. The film hoped to launch a new franchise that distinguished itself from the beloved Guillermo del Toro films, but is bogged down by a muddled script and poor CGI and make up effects. However, together Joel and Andy find its silver lining.

Theme Song: “Bankin’” by Bronson Scott

Silver Linings Playback 12 – Steel

Subscribe:

Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre are continuing their quest to watch maligned movies in hopes of finding a silver lining.

For the month of July, they are watching superhero movies.

1997 was an odd year for comic book movies. In addition to Batman & Robin (which we revisited to start the month), ’97 gave us Steel, a film starring Shaquille O’Neal as John Henry Irons, a man who builds himself a metal suit to fight crime with the help of his disabled partner Sparks.

Joel and Andy revisit the film to find its silver lining.
