Hopefully by now you will have caught up with DCEU’s latest attempt at salvaging a flailing franchise with Justice League. Hosts Steve Norman and Owen Hughes run their beady eye over Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon’s ensemble superhero flick, as well as chatting about some post-apocalyptic fiction and reviewing their favourite cough sweets. Yum.
In an ugly, grey and corrupted world, Wonder Woman impresses Owen Hughes to be one of the best comic book movies we’re likely to get this year. Read his full review below.
This week we welcome Gerry and his shitty microphone back to the Failed Critics Review – and thank God he’s back, as when the discussion turned to the latest Justice League movie rumours and Aquaman’s name was mentioned, James was hopelessly out of his depth.
When we finally got around to reviewing films we discussed our differing reactions to The Bourne Legacy, Gerry’s Failed Listener assignment Withnail & I, and impending nuclear apocalypse.
We seem to have got the hang of keeping the podcast under an hour now. Anyone unhinged listeners who need more can download our Triple Bill on Friday (Favourite Fight Scenes), or if you ask nicely we’ll give you Steve’s phone number so you can discuss Mighty Ducks whenever you want.
