Guardians of the Galaxy walkman poster

Unlike the previous one-off review of Devil’s Knot, there’s been almost no hype or promotion of the small movie based on the blockbuster, well known comic book Guardians of the Galaxy. So, in an effort to shed a spotlight on the little known films that don’t get much oxygen of publicity, Niall ‘Before Zod’ Heseltine, the currently mute Jon Seymour, and myself have sought out this little flick and offer our opinions on it.

The start of this podcast sounds amazing because it was recorded on a brand new very expensive mic. I neglected, however, to check how full the memory card was, so the latter half sounds dreadful due to it being the backup recorded on Niall’s phone. But hey, a backup is better than nothing, right?
Stick with us though as we get into some pretty meaty philosophical and moral questions that the film poses and we’re both pretty damn pleased with the quality of discourse in this one, if not the sound. Enjoy.

Broadcaster and film critic RJ Bayley and writer Niall ‘before Zod’ Heseltine return to tell you all about how Man of Steel doesn’t deserve the bad rep it’s been blasted with. Is a film that’s all flashy violence such a bad thing when the flashy violence is so good? Do they put Superman in such a position where the controversial final act is the only reasonable course of action? Find out in this podcast, which does not contain a ten minute kazoo intro.

We’re back! Sorry for the increasing delay between episodes. I’ve been asked to do 3 hours instead of 2 for the RJ Bayley Rock Show on 98.8 Castle FM in Edinburgh (7 – 10PM, listen online here) as well as preparing to do a live music night. That’ll be Monthly Metal, every month some live metal, broadcast on 98.8 Castle FM, at the Banshee Labyrinth in Edinburgh, or, if you’re American, Edinborrow. Next one is 29th of Feb folks, come along, say hello, don’t bellow obscenities down the microphone every two minutes making the audio unusable for broadcast.

On the note of music, (“note“!) there’s 10 minutes of our kazoo version of the Iron Man song by Black Sabbath at the start of this podcast. I said I’d loop it for 10 minutes at the start, so I did. Don’t skip it. That’s art.

Thanks for sticking with us.

Assemble round your speakers friends, we’ve reached the end of phase one of the Marvel Screen Universe, and the end of an era, really. Film writer Niall ‘before Zod’ Heseltine, and myself, film critic and radio host, RJ Bayley have arrived at the film our childhood selves never thought we’d live to see: Avengers Assemble: Not to be Confused with The Avengers Starring Patrick Macnee.

We discuss the spoilerific menu screen of the Blu-ray, how many times we saw it, why the characters keep taking their hats off and the stunning visuals of the movie, among other things!

RJ Bayley and Niall ‘before Zod’ Heseltine are joined once more by their regular-but-not-regular-enough-to-be-in-the-intro cohort Jon Seymour to discuss Iron Man 2.

Is Stark’s second outing unfairly maligned as an inferior superhero flick. What do people in the know call the Marvel Cinematic Universe these day? What is RJB willing to do to show his admiration for RDJ? Where do the real roots of Whiplash lie?

Find out all this and more in the latest Marvel Vs. DC Movie Mash-Up.

Iron Man 1-3 Complete Collection [Blu-ray]

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.

Niall “before Zod” Heseltine and RJ Bayley take an unsteady step into the second Marvel Screen Universe outing, The Incredible Hulk. We discuss Marvel’s early unease at distancing themselves from the Ang Lee film Hulk, who is the most handsome of men, and I drink so many fizzy drinks I set a podcast record for belching and feel very sick by the end. So if you’re playing the now omnipresent Goats In The Machine Gaseous Expulsion Drinking Game then boy are you going to be wasted by the end of this show!

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.
