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 353 – Fast food mascot slash fiction

This week, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle wonder aloud if The Hamburglar and The Noid were actually heroes, trying to save us all from subpar fast food. They also wonder if the two ever found love … perhaps even in one another.

Murphy and Periwinkle also share their thoughts on Jurassic World, Game of Thrones and the never-produced third Joel Schumacher Batman film that would have starred Courtney Love as Harley Quinn.

What horrible traits has Big Vinegar picked up this week? Who would have played the Scarecrow in Schumacher’s film? Can Game of Thrones keep a certain character’s resurrection a secret if it comes to pass? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
