This is the big one. It’s been a while coming but here we are. The Marvel Vs. DC Movie Mash-Up arrives at arguably the most iconic Batman movie of them all, Chris Nolan’s epic The Dark Knight. Batfan Jon Seymour once again joins ever present hosts Niall ‘before Zod’ Heseltine and myself, RJ Bayley, for a very long, very nerdy, very passionate chat about the second installment of the Dark Knight Trilogy. We cover the what was, what is, what may be and what might have been of this truly seminal superhero saga. This is fully indulgent Bat fandom, so tuck in.

You know the drill ladies and gentleman, you wait impossibly long for another Master Bates Motel podcast and eventually one turns up where we talk a load of nonsense around the subject. We’ll try to be quicker with the next we promise. We’ve just had an awful lot on. SOZZA.

A mere 10 films in and we finally made it. We’ve finally arrived at the first film in what known back then as a Marvel Cinematic Universe (now better described as the Marvel Screen Universe). In this episode we remind ourselves of just how good the original really was, and I come up with a super-theory of just why Tony Stark is so bleeding intelligent.

As you may or may not know the humble multiplex is on a crash course with terminal amount of cinematic franchises, sequels, reboots and so on, and it’s due to hit in 2015. Only 2 men can prepare you for the fall out of such a catastrophic event. The preparation needs to start now, and those 2 men are the FILM CORPS.

We’re back for episode 2 of our Bates Motel podcast. Louise treats us to her new segment World of the Weird, and we discuss parents being naked – what is there more to say really? Give it a download!

What on earth lead to Batman striking this pose exactly?

The world’s greatest prank.

This is Niall ‘before Zod’ Heseltine’s and my podcast on the 1997 disaster that we all were sadly affected by. A lot of good brain cells died watching the film that brought you this podcast.

If you support the men giving their time to secure you this podcast please consider giving them a 5 star review on iTunes or buying something through their Amazon links. If not, how about a good review on Stitcher?

In this episode we look at which elements of theses neon hell don’t follow logic, and which just defy comprehension. We look at Poison Ivy’s plant-hybrid life and compare it to our theories on Superman in a previous podcast, the baffling lack of sense when it comes to ‘ice’ puns, Alfred’s complete dismissal of  Batman’s life, the fact that mirrors now apparently reflect all temperatures,  the idea that George Clooney plays Batman as a kind simpleton, Robin’s petulance and the massive issue of Batgirl’s weight.

It’s something amusing itself, that the biggest comedy festival in the world began on the fringe of the world’s biggest arts festival.

But it’s a long time since those unwelcomed but enterprising performers set up their own festival at the edges of the still simultaneously running Edinburgh International Festival. Since then it’s ballooned into a citywide month of fun and chaos run by many different companies, small and massive (a fact which Stewart Lee decries, despite still finding it in himself to play the Assembly Rooms, one of the biggest venues there is) vying for your attention.

After virtually unstoppable growth however, the recession’s finally hit over half a decade late. As Richard Herring himself put it “everyone is having a hard time”.

Generally, I am going to bang on and on about Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but there is reason and warrant for this. It is the character and story, here’s why.

The character one plays, Nathan Drake, has just had a hairy (a pun!) encounter with a set of yetis that are not actually yetis and escaped from a Himalayan snow temple. Upon his return to the village he set off from, he finds it not the safe, peaceful sanctuary of before, but a war zone that has been overrun by the villain Zoran Lazarevic. (more…)

Do you remember that time when Superman was an old man for 30 seconds? How about the time when Jim Broadbent stood in the background of a Lex Luthor scene for a moment? Or perhaps the time Mark Pillow grew his nails and scratched Superman? Surely you must remember the time when the United Nations was on an industrial estate in Milton Keynes? (more…)

Eleven down, one to go. Twelve Months of Terror is nearly at an end and I take absolutely no pleasure in saying that. But then if you’re leaving wanting more, that’s only a good sign, isn’t it?

As a little filling between your Thanksgiving ThanksKilling Turkie and Christmas Silent Night, Deadly Night turkey, here’s some high-res art you can print off and slap on your wall as a part of, and then soon after, memento of the shock-til-you-drop post-apocalyptic podcasting project that is Goats In The Machine’s Twelve Months of Terror.
