BITD 160 Point 5 Photo

Tom and Derrick’s look at Edgar Wright’s departure from Ant-Man becomes a freewheeling discussion of what Marvel is doing right, what DC is doing wrong, and whatever the hell Fox and Sony think they’re doing. Along the way, The Boys Outta Brooklyn review Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, curse Frank Miller, bless Mark Waid, and struggle to fill the plot holes in The Nolanverse!

BITD 157 Photo Final

Better In The Dark – Episode #152.5: BITD’s on the Box Office Grosses of Destruction

BITD 152 Point 5 Photo
In this messy show, Tom and Derrick looks at the rather epic levels of carnage in this year’s summer blockbusters, and wonder if it’s too much. Are we being desensitized to all this damage? Is it fair for Hollywood to call back to 9/11 for lazy affirmation of their plot developments? And why is Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim a more responsible film than Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel? All this, plus the Superman sequel Tom really wants to see! You now you don’t want to wander Tokyo carrying a red shoe, so get to clicking (and don’t forget to Twitter us at @BITDShow)!
