    025. Unconquered + Nat Turner

    025. Unconquered + Nat Turner

    This episode we look at two starkly different takes on historical fiction. Unconquered is a Technicolor epic from 1947 directed by Cecil B. DeMille and starring Gary Cooper and Paulette Goddard. This film represents an extremely Anglo-centric history of the United States, ostensibly telling the story of Pontiac's War from the perspective of a frontiersman and an indentured servant. Nat Turner is a four issue mini series written and drawn by Professor Kyle Baker about a violent slave uprising led by the titular enslaved man turned violent revolutionary and messiah. Nat Turner is both historically accurate and emotionally searing on a technical and thematic level.

    024. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    024. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    The Star Wars saga began over 40 years ago with the release of Star Wars (later re-titled A New Hope) in 1977. Now, decades later, Star Wars has spanned nine films in the main storyline, multiple spin offs and countless TV shows, video games, books, and comics. Rise of Skywalker certainly represents a technical and cultural achievement, but is it any good? Join us as we try to parse out the end of the Skywalker saga and decipher what exactly has made Star Wars such an unstoppable juggernaut of pop culture.

    022. Unsane + Dr. Doom and Dr. Strange

    022. Unsane + Dr. Doom and Dr. Strange

    Hell is other people. Hell is also ourselves. It is also, I suppose, a magical realm where evil creatures and the like live. This episode we examine the Steven Soderbergh joint Unsane, which is possibly about an insane person, corrupt institutions, and how awful people can be for twisted reasons. Then, we take a journey through the Roger Stern written and Mike Mignola drawn Marvel story Dr. Strange and Doctor Doom, which involves a titanic team up of gnarly neophyte necromancers into a mystic maelstrom against Mephisto.
