Reel Comic Heroes 021 - Superman: The Movie - Part 1

Part 1

Greetings, Citizens. This week Patrick and Travis return to the first hero on our list, Superman. This one is wildly different than the previous look at Clark Kent in his adventure with some curious mole people.

In 1978 the world witnessed, what some would say, the birth of the comic book movie with Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie

This episode features our review of Acts I & II of the film. Next episode will feature Act III and our wrap up. In the meantime, feel free to send us your thoughts and we'll include them in our next episode.

Reel Comic Heroes 020 - The Spy Who Loved Me

Greetings, Citizens and Bond fans. We're back with our review of Roger Moore in 1977s The Spy Who Loved Me. We went into this one a little skeptical, as some of the recent Bond films have been so-so. We came out of it thoroughly entertained and hopeful of Bond's future. With TSWLM, it feels as if Roger Moore has become comfortable in the role and has made it his own. 

We'll be back next week with a look at the first trailer for Ghostbusters

Spoiler Warning: At the end of the episode we talk a little about recent events of CW's The Flash

Reel Comic Heroes 017 - Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope - Part 1 with Rory Spence

On May 25th, 1977 Star Wars made its debut and blew the world away with its incredible set pieces, effects and dramatic adventure. Twenty years later, the creator of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, George Lucas returned Luke, Leia and Han to the big screen with new special effects in order to get the movie closer to his original vision. 

Join us as we take our first step into a larger world along with our first guest, Rory Spence from Hangover Reviews. We had a great time talking about this movie with Rory and actually decided to split it into two parts. 

We'd love to know your thoughts on the show, and about Star Wars. Email us and we'll share them on an upcoming episode.

Reel Comic Heroes 016 - The Man With the Golden Gun

James Bond has returned! The Man With the Golden Gun felt like an old familiar suit. It felt like Roger Moore has managed to incorporate elements of Connery's performance while making the character his own. This movie, while having a lot of light-hearted moments, still found the brutality of the Bond character.

Christopher Lee as the villain Scaramanga, along with his sidekick, Nick Nack, are a welcome duo against 007. We look forward to seeing more from Roger Moore as James Bond.

Next time on Reel Comic Heroes: Star Wars. Let us know your favorite Star Wars moment. We'd love to share them on the show.

Reel Comic Heroes 015 - Live and Let Die

This one surprised us, citizens. We went into this movie with high hopes. After all, it was the start of a new Bond - Roger Moore. Live and Let Die seems to have been a product of a much different time.

Live and Let Die brings James Bond back to the states, and eventually to an island in the Caribbean in his mission to investigate the deaths of three fellow agents. While investigating he crosses paths with Dr. Kananga who is more than he seems, and is aided by a beautiful fortune teller.

Download or listen to the episode on iTunes or Stitcher.

If you had a different reaction to Live and Let Die than we did (or, even if you agree with us), please email us and let us know your thoughts. We would love to know what people think of this movie. Send any reviews, ratings, comments or questions to the show at reelcomicheroes@gmail.com

Reel Comic Heroes 014 - Battle for the Planet of the Apes

We've reached the end of the original Apes series. The franchise has gone crazy places since Taylor (Charlton Heston) first set foot on the shores of the Forbidden Zone. We've seen Cornelius and Zira (McDowell and Hunter) start as intellectuals and then become fugitives. We finally met Caesar - the ape who defied his masters and led a revolution.

Now, in Battle for the Planet of the Apes, we see Caesar balance two societies; his Ape brethren, and the humans who serve them.

Reel Comic Heroes 013 - Conquest of the Planet of the Apes

Welcome back, Citizens. We took an extended break over the holidays, but we're back and ready to talk about one of our two loves on this show; Apes and James Bond. This week it's Apes. 

Conquest of the Planet of the Apes is a straight-forward, dark tale of Caesar rising up from obedient servitude to revolutionary hero.

Reel Comic Heroes 012 - Diamonds Are Forever

Just like Sean Connery returning to the role of 007, Patrick and Travis have also returned to the world of James Bond. This episode is all about keeping track of where the diamonds have gotten to in 1971s Diamonds Are Forever

This movie was rather bittersweet for us. On one hand we're looking forward to seeing where Roger Moore will go with Bond, and on the other hand, we wish Connery would have gone out with a little more impact.

Let us know what you think of Diamonds Are Forever, as well as some of your favorite Sean Connery as Bond moments. Email us at reelComicHeroes@gmail.com and we'll share them on an upcoming episode.

Reel Comic Heroes 011 - Escape From the Planet of the Apes

This week we had a lot of fun talking about (and not talking about) Escape From the Planet of the Apes. We may have gotten off on a few tangents here or there, but hopefully you can keep up with us. 

'Escape From' is quite a departure from what we've been used to in the previous two Apes movies. Instead of humans fleeing for their lives on a future world ruled by apes, we get to see Zira and Cornelius experience modern day (1973) America.

Reel Comic Heroes 010 - Beneath the Planet of the Apes

Why hide it? We did not enjoy Beneath the Planet of the Apes. But we did have fun talking about it. Check out our review of the movie and find out what we did like about the movie, as well as what we could have done without. 

Beneath the Planet of the Apes follows the journey of another astronaut, Brent, on a rescue mission to find Taylor. While Brent searches for Taylor, with help from Nova, Cornelius and Zira, the Ape army marches to take back the Forbidden Zone from a threat which lives in the underground ruins of old New York City.

Planet of the Apes

This week there was no talk of bat-men or secret agents. This week's podcast has been taken over by Apes. We've made it to 1968 in our list, which means it's time to talk about Planet of the Apes. 

Join us as we follow Bright Eyes (Charlton Heston) through his insane journey from ship wreck to captivity, and ultimately to the truth behind a world where Ape is the dominant species on the planet.

Reel Comic Heroes 007 - You Only Live Twice

You Only Live Twice

James Bond comes back from the dead to once again stop a deadly plot by SPECTRE. You Only Live Twice takes Sean Connery as Agent 007 to Japan where he meets Akiko Wakabayashi, Tiger Tanaka, Kissy Suzuki, and eventually comes face to face with SPECTRE's number one - Blofeld.
