Being asked to guest host on another podcast is always a privilege, and that’s just what happened when Axel Foley of the Daily DVR Podcast asked Julian to drop in and discuss the latest season of Stranger Things. Axel and Julian are joined by Youtuber Fandom D. Saint to break down what has become Netflix’s biggest hit show. They were kind enough to share the full episode with us for your enjoyment, but make sure to head over to dvrpodcast.com to help support our podcasting friends.Read More
The guys sit down to discuss the latest in DC’s Animated Movie Universe; Batman:Hush. Another in a long list of adaptations Batman:Hush is based on the iconic 2003 run of the same name, written by Jeph Loeb with art by Jim Lee. Batman has, arguably, the greatest rogues gallery in comic books, and it can be nearly impossible to introduce interesting villains to the pantheon, yet this story succeeds in creating one of the more memorable contemporary Batman villains (while still including many of the classics). This is a pure detective story and, while the art cannot possibly be fully translated from the page, the mystery components are in full effect; so the guys were only able to spend a brief period avoiding the story elements. Strongly recommend reading the comics, watching the movie, or, ideally, both before listening.Read More
It’s Christmas in July! Nerd Christmas that is. San Diego Comic-Con is upon us once again and Julian, Dan, and Jeremy are here to unpack all the major news from this year’s con. Including, but not limited to: Star Trek: Picard, new Superman DC animated movies, Top Gun: Maverick, and The Witcher! Then the guys dive deep into the what became THE story from this year’s show; Marvel Studios’ Phase Four slate. From Doctor Strange to Black Widow, and The Mighty Thor to an Oscar winning Blade announcement, Marvel held little back as it revealed it’s plans for the next 2 years. All this and so much more (including a heated Funko Pop debate) on this week’s Tower of Babble Podcast!Read More
With another Disney remake dropping this week the guys sit down to reminisce and talk Lion King, Mulan teaser, and Little Mermaid casting news. After Disney the show naturally segues into an R-rated Mortal Kombat adaptation (with an emphasis on Fatalities), Joker movie news, and a rumoured villain for the third Spider-Man movie rounding out the movies segment.
Plus Mandalorian Season 2 information, Zack Snyder and Jay Oliva teaming up for an anime Norse mythology series, and brief impression of Stranger Things Season 3.Read More
I can’t imagine it being easy having to follow in the footsteps of Avengers: Endgame. It made more money than any Marvel film (more than basically every movie ever), and left a cultural footprint that will be felt for decades. All that being said, something had to come after Endgame, and that was the task asked of Spider-Man: Far From Home. Labelled as the final film of the MCU’s “phase three”, the story picks up not long after the events of Endgame, and throws Spidey into a whole new adventure that takes him out of his element (again). With a lot of emotional heavy lifting to do, Far From Home manages to nail the humour and action elements that are now staples of the Marvel formula perfectly, while at the same time leaving room for a lot of fun new surprises. Julian, Dan, and Jeremy break it all down and give their take on what looks to be another massive hit for Marvel.Read More
