If It Bleeds: Nightcrawler vs Christine

Nightcrawler vs Christine

2 movies about the "If it bleeds, it leads" school of journalism, society's fascination with violence, and the effect that this has on us as individuals — it’s Nightcrawler vs Christine.

Zero to Hero: Into the Spider-Verse vs Sucker Punch

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse vs Sucker Punch

I get animated discussing 2 visually stunning movies that feature disenfranchised heroes discovering various realms and finding their inner strength along the way — it's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse vs Sucker Punch.

Date with Destiny: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind vs TiMER

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind vs TiMER

We're venturing into a more interesting side of relationships with 2 movies where technology becomes intertwined with love and where our protagonists must decide whether to meddle with their romantic fates — it's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind vs TiMER.

Hustlers: American Hustle vs America's Sweethearts

American Hustle vs America's Sweethearts

Two movies about keeping up appearances to get what you want and the very complicated relationships that make it difficult to do so ⁠— it's American Hustle vs America's Sweethearts.

At Last: The Notebook vs Disobedience

The Notebook vs Disobedience

I get romantic this week discussing 2 movies about love & freedom with characters torn between a life of what they've been told they should want and what they actually want — it's The Notebook vs Disobedience.

And instead of the word "characters" I could just say "Rachel McAdams is torn" because she is in both films facing similar dilemmas. Disobedience is the grown-up version of The Notebook, the less idyllic, more realistic depiction of a couple that is meant to be.

Going Viral: 28 Days Later vs Contagion

28 Days Later vs Contagion

I get very passionate this week discussing 2 movies where plagues overtake the earth, revealing the truth of humanity, both the good and the bad — it’s 28 Days Later vs Contagion.

Better Together: Kick-Ass vs Blade: Trinity

Kick-Ass vs Blade Trinity

These movies feature rogue heroes from all walks of life teaming up in pursuit of a common goal, and the supposed side characters become the best part of the film ⁠— it’s Kick-Ass vs Blade: Trinity.

In the wake of all the new Marvel films and series announced at San Diego Comic-Con, and a new iteration of Blade with Mahershala Ali, it seemed like a good time to delve back into the fringes of the super hero genre, the Marvel super heroes who don’t get the due of a Captain America or an Iron Man.
