Traumatic Cinematic, Ep. 59This is our 2nd installment in our March-ial Arts month spectacular and we bring you Jet Li’s “last martial arts movie” Fearless. We invited a special guest on the show from the Movies, Cigars, and Beer podcast Keith Hughes and we give him the Traumatic Cinematic royal treatment. Tune in to find out if Mike drinks himself into a Sassafras blackout, find out if Keith gives up podcasting forever after being soiled by the trio, and if DeMoss hogs all the airtime.

An Announcement: Crash Re-course
March 6, 2013, 10:33 am
Filed under: Reviews

First, the sad news: no new video this week. But in much happier news, there’s no new video (a) because Emerald City Comic Con was last weekend and (b) – we got ourselves a whole stack of new A/V equipment Monday morning – not in time for Emerald City, but in plenty of time for my return. Because of this, we’re in the middle of learning all our new equipment’s ends and outs and changing our entire lighting scheme to combat our presenter’s hideousness. New stuff is in the works, including the requested Upcoming Review Schedule and various ideas kicking around the old brain pan. Again, thank you for your patience in advance: it’s very much appreciated. If all goes well, we’ll be back in a flash.

If the gorillas don't carve out our brains first.

Assuming the gorillas don’t carve out our brain.

Find out if DeMoss can find a handful of things to hate about this title, see if Wickliff roots for the one handed bad guy, and if MuGumBo uploaded the correct show this week.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 (2013)

Part 4: More Comic Book History You Don’t Care About But Need to Know in Order to Understand What the Hell’s Going On in This Review:

"We now return you to our regularly scheduled film, already in progress."

“We now return you to our regularly scheduled film, already in progress.”

Since Warner Brothers insisted on adapting this story into two, one hour and twelve minute movies I made a point of not revisiting Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 in preparation for this review of Part Deux. If it’d been up to me, I would’ve adapting Frank Miller’s four-issue story arc into one movie. Even with everything here it’d still be at least an hour shorter than the last two live action Bat-films. And make no mistake – the WB’s straight-to-video animation department threw in a lot.

They had no choice.  These are adaptions of one of the best-loved Batman stories in history. Find me a Bat-writer and, with a little help from my friend Google, I’ll probably be able to find you a choice quote about how 1986’s Dark Knight Returns either got them into Batman in the first place, or brought them back after a period of apostasy. Current Batman/Superman writer Greg Pak just provided me a perfect example in this interview, dated February 27th, 2013:

I dropped out for a little bit, and I was still picking up indie comics like Cerebus and Usagi Yojimbo, but it was Batman that got me back into superhero comics when I was in college. Specifically it was Dark Knight Returns and Batman: Year One, which then led me to other stuff. It was basically Frank Miller who dragged me back in, and I was hooked. I was obsessed with Batman.

The Traumatic Cinematic Show: Ep. 57: Foxy Brown
February 25, 2013, 10:02 am
Filed under: Podcasts | Tags: ,

Foxy BrownTo close out Black History month we at the TCPodcast studio decided since we’ve already tasted the modern throwback Blaxploitation film Black Dynamite we needed to also view one of the greatest and most copied films from the genre. Pam Grier plays the ever so sexy badass in this 1974 cult classic Foxy Brown and we get elbow deep in it. The trio invited 3 Black Geeks to join in and Chris Powell represents them and the East Coast verses MuGumBo’s Midwest style and DeMoss’s West Coast jingle. Tune in to find out where Wickliff was, see if DeMoss and Chris Powell start a coast to coast podcast war, and if Antonio Fargas is the Steve Buscemi of Blaxploitation films (spoiler alert: he totally is).

Please check out Chris Powell (3 Black Geeks) and all the links to their site and podcast.
