Episode 46: Revisiting Tim Burton’s Batman Films + 'The Boys Presents: Diabolical' Review
Manage episode 324823388 series 2947193
After Matt Reeves’s The Batman, the squad just can’t get enough Bats! We go back in time to review Tim Burton’s iconic Batman and Batman Returns, starring Michael Keaton as the titular vigilante. It’s a fond revisit for some of us, but a whole new world of gothic, camp, and wacky villains for others. Tune in for our takes on what was great, what did NOT age well, and a fond reflection on movie tropes from the 80s and 90s.
We also cover season one of Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys Presents: Diabolical, an animated anthology of shorts from different writers and animation studios all set in the world of Vought. If you’re like us and eagerly awaiting season three of The Boys, or you just have a twisted sense of humor, you gotta check it out.

If you stick around after the credits, you might meet a new coterie of villains…
