Silver Linings Playback 10 – Batman & Robin

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 start the month with Batman & Robin, which is generally regarded as the low point in Batman movies. (It ended the franchise launched by Tim Burton and Michael Keaton and convinced Warner Bros. to reboot everything, which lead to Batman Begins.) Joel and Andy pay tribute to its beloved director – the late, great Joel Schumacher – and find the film’s silver lining.

Theme Song: “Bankin’” by Bronson Scott

Hobo Radio Interview – Remembering Dennis O’Neil

Subscribe:

Comic book legend Dennis O’Neil passed away at the age of 81. O’Neil was a writer for both Marvel and DC Comics from the 1960s through the 1990s. He created Ra’s and Talia al Ghul and, as DC’s Batman editor, oversaw the Knightfall storyline that introduced the world to Bane.

In 2012, Joel Murphy interviewed O’Neil for an article about Bane to introduce causal fans to the character before the release of Christopher Nolan’s film The Dark Knight Rises. Most of the interview, unfortunately, ended up on the cutting room floor and has never been heard before. But today, to honor the man and his amazing legacy, Murphy is releasing the full, unedited 40-minute interview for the first time.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • Interstitial – “Glass Android” by Lee Rosevere
