Hobo Radio 529 – A Joker deep dive

Subscribe:

Todd Phillips’ Joker film (and the bizarre press tour leading up to the premiere) has been a frequent topic of discussion on Hobo Radio. Now that the movie is finally out in the world, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle share their thoughts on Joker in what will (hopefully) be the last time they discuss it on the show.

Did they enjoy the film? How did it rank among other DC Comic films? Is there any way it might tie into a larger cinematic universe? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Never Really Change” by Derek Clegg

Hobo Radio 528 – Todd Phillips is here for the gangbang

Subscribe:

Todd Phillips was sitting on top of the world. His new film, Joker, was getting critical acclaim on the film festival circuit and was already being considered an Oscar contender. Then, for some reason, he decided to go on the attack; destroying all goodwill by attacking “PC culture” for pushing him out of comedy and into comic book homages to Martin Scorsese films.

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle try to make sense of Todd Phillips disastrous press tour and take a close look at the clip he leaked to Jimmy Kimmel of Joker star Joaquin Phoenix yelling at the film’s cinematographer.

Why so serious, Todd Phillips? What major film franchises could have their rights revert back to the writers? Is Todd Phillips here for the gangbang? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Say Goodnight” by Mild Wild

Hobo Radio 524 – By the end of this episode, I will have said something worse to you

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle look at Bret Stephens’ overreaction to being called a bed bug by Professor David Karpf, which leads to a discussion about the media in general and its ability to drum up controversy by amplifying the voices of an obnoxious minority.

They also discuss the trailer for the new Joker film, Rey’s new lightsaber in the Rise of Skywalker trailer and Joel shares his pitch for the third Deadpool film.

How does Rey’s lightsaber function? Have we seen Martha Wayne’s pearls hit the alley more times than we’ve seen Peter Parker get bit by a spider? Why is Lars so horny? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.
