by Kevin on June 12, 2017

The biggest movie in the world right now is WONDER WOMAN, breathing new life into the dying corpse of the DC Extended Universe!

by Kevin on May 29, 2017

This week, in anticipation of the next DCEU film WONDER WOMAN, we’re taking a look at the very first attempt at a WONDER WOMAN TV/movie from 1974, starring Cathy Lee Crosby as a blond super spy who may or may not have any tangential relation to the character of Wonder Woman. International intrigue! Pantsuits! Donkeys! […] Read More >>

It’s time to get R-Rated with our SPOILER-HEAVY review of the 2017 film LOGAN, the film which dares to ask the question “What if your favorite comic book characters got really old, sick, and died?” The blood, drama, and naughty words are front in center in the latest and possibly final outing for Hugh Jackman […] Read More >>

Darkness… No parents… Super rich… Must be another Batman movie! But this is no ordinary Batman movie: it’s THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE, the highly anticipated sequel/spin-off to the 2014 runaway hit THE LEGO MOVIE. But is everything awesome this time around, or should Lego Batman stick to the supporting roles? And how does this film […] Read More >>

CBL #46: Batman Forever (1995)

by Kevin on February 6, 2017

The time has come to talk about BATMAN FOREVER, the first of the Schumacher Batman films and the beginning of the end of the comic book movie false start of the 90s. Campy, kid-friendly villains, a big pop soundtrack, and a new actor playing the caped crusader… But is it as bad as we remember, […] Read More >>

The holidays may have come and gone, but Joe and Kevin are still putting the final bow on 2016 with a chat about the classic A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS.

by Kevin on December 18, 2016

Buckle your boots and grab your magic candles, CBL listeners, because this week we’re jumping into the 2007 adventure-fantasy STARDUST, novelist and comic book hero Neil Gaiman’s tale of one man’s quest to kidnap a celestial body and marry Sienna Miller. With a solid cast and impressive visual effects, does the film live up to […] Read More >>

CBL #42: Barbarella (1968)

by Kevin on November 28, 2016

It’s time to go camping on CBL — wait, no, not camping, CAMPY! Jane Fonda takes us back to the retro-futuristic 1960s with the sexy classic BARBARELLA!

by Kevin on November 14, 2016

This week, CBL is getting strange… DOCTOR STRANGE, that is! It’s a spoiler-filled discussion of the latest MCU offering, starring beloved internet mascot Benedict Cumberbatch as the wizard-doctor himself — or is that doctor wizard? Does the MCU have another hit on its hands, or should we all wave our hands and grab our sling […] Read More >>

by Kevin on October 30, 2016

Sweet Christmas! CBL has moved to the small screen to talk about Season 1 of the new Netflix Marvel series LUKE CAGE. Luke may be bulletproof, but is the series so lucky?

by Kevin on October 3, 2016

This week, CBL returns to the leather-and-sunglasses-clad streets of Manhattan for BLADE II!

CBL #38: Batman: The Movie (1966)

by Kevin on September 17, 2016

Holy podcasts! This week CBL travels way back for the camp-tastic 1966 film BATMAN: THE MOVIE! It’s an amazing technicolor dream-bat experience as Batman and Robin take on a quartet of classic villains, each more absurd than the last! Will Joe and Kevin successfully discuss the movie and escape unscathed? Will they have any overlap […] Read More >>

Comic Book Logic returns this week with our take on the beloved 2010 comic book/video game movie mashup SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD.

CBL #36: Suicide Squad (2016)

by Kevin on August 8, 2016

It’s a spoiler-iffic episode of CBL as we take on the brand new entry in the DC Cinematic Universe, SUICIDE SQUAD. Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, and a whole bunch of other weirdos you’ve never heard of are on a mission to save the world… or maybe just rescue their boss… or maybe both? Who […] Read More >>

It’s a CBL bonus episode! We had a chance to check out the new animated feature BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE and sat down to discuss it. Mark Hamill’s reprisal of his classic Joker notwithstanding, how does the film — and by extension, the classic 1988 graphic novel — hold up to scrutiny? What are they […] Read More >>

CBL #35: Spider-Man 3 (2007)

by Kevin on July 24, 2016

The Summer of Spidey comes to a close with the often maligned 2007 film SPIDER-MAN 3! Sam Raimi may have disowned it, but are emo Peter Parker’s finger-guns and hair flips really so bad? Has this movie maybe aged a bit better than we expected, or are we right to leave it on the trash […] Read More >>

The Summer of Spidey continues this week with the 2004 sequel SPIDER-MAN 2! Sam Raimi and the whole gang is back and they look as tired as ever. This time Spider-Man faces off against the villainous Doctor Octopus, whose complete lack of foresight and attention to safety protocols causes CGI mayhem all over Chica — […] Read More >>

It’s the Summer of Spidey on Comic Book Logic! This week we kick things off with Sam Raimi’s 2002 blockbuster SPIDER-MAN, the film that spawned 2 sequels and who knows how many future reboots. It was a web slinging good time 14 years ago, but how does it hold up in a post-MCU landscape? And […] Read More >>

This week, We didn’t feel like giving Michael Bay anymore money so we decided to review another cinema garbage fire, 2005’s FANTASTIC FOUR. Featuring that girl who was really popular in the 2000’s, Captain America, and the Commish! This is where we once again ponder why FOX tries to desperately hold onto this license. We […] Read More >>

This week, the contractually obligated X-Men alternate timeline movies continues with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, featuring GAME OF THRONES alum Sophie Turner as Jean Grey and STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS hero Oscar Isaac as McDonald’s Grimace! Does this new world-ending installment live up to its surprisingly enjoyable predecessors, or has Sony dropped the ball again? And […] Read More >>

The next installment of the MCU is upon us with CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR! Which side will your hosts take: Team Cap? Team Iron Man? Team William Hurt? Be warned that this episode, as always, is chock-full of SPOILERS so if you are one of the two or three people who haven’t seen this movie […] Read More >>

Sit back, relax, and slip on your most comfortable Italian leather shoes, because this week we’re dissecting the 1990 direct-to-video CAPTAIN AMERICA! There are no winter soldiers or civil wars here, but there are plenty of absurd Italian accents, dirt bikes, and beautiful assassins out to kidnap the president. Is this Roman holiday schlocky, B-movie […] Read More >>

Comic Book Logic: 300 (2007)

by Kevin on April 15, 2016

This week the Zack Snyder-athon continues with the 2007 historical mini-epic 300! Joe and Kevin discuss the film’s gratuitous use of CGI, ample shirtless beefcakes, and some of the beardiest beards they’ve ever seen. Does the meme-worthy movie hold up, or should it have been chucked off a cliff at birth? Plus we return to […] Read More >>

This week, Joe and Kevin debate the latest divisive entry in the DC cinematic universe, BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, and just like director Zack Snyder they go BIG! With so much to unpack, the episode goes long, so they can do justice to Batfleck, mopey Supes, Wonder Woman, and all your favorites, with […] Read More >>

This week, Joe and Kevin suffer through the 2013 disaster MAN OF STEEL, in which a British Superman mopes and grimaces his way to murdering an alien in order to get a job at a newspaper. Does this spell bad news for DC’s probably-too-late-to-matter attempt at building a cinematic universe to rival Marvel? More importantly, […] Read More >>

This week Joe & Kevin gear up and take revenge on the 2004 action flick THE PUNISHER, starring a too-serious Thomas Jane and a consistently bewildered John Travolta. Does this tale of a family reunion gone awry satisfy, or are your hosts the only ones being punished? We also talk our fantasy casting, and share […] Read More >>

Comic Book Logic- Deadpool (2016)

by Joe on February 21, 2016

The Internet has been exploding with R-rated glee over the new movie DEADPOOL, but is this not-quite-a-superhero adventure all it’s cracked up to be? Joe and Kevin have a SPOILER-IFFIC discussion about the film’s ups and downs, and whether the meta movie is meta enough to truly stand out.   Seriously, there are lots and […] Read More >>

Comic Book Logic: Watchmen (2009)

by Joe on January 24, 2016

Who watches The Watchmen? Joe and Kevin, that’s who! We sit down to discuss Zack Snyder’s WATCHMEN, the 2009 adaptation of the epic graphic novel that couldn’t be filmed, but then was filmed anyway, with predictably mixed results. Does this grim commentary on the fall of the American dream satisfy, or does it splatter to […] Read More >>

This week, Joe & Kevin are joined by special guest Pat B from the PLAY ON PODCAST to look into the future! We preview each of the big comic book movies coming in 2016 and discuss which have the potential to be worth your time, and which you ought to just wait and catch one […] Read More >>

The Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy comes to a dramatic, goofy, befuddling conclusion with the cinematic boondoggle THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Three years later, does the final film hold up, or should Nolan be thrown into a mysterious pit in the middle of nowhere? And at the end of the day, which is better: Batman voice, […] Read More >>

This week on Comic Book Logic we discuss the 4th greatest film of all time (according to weirdoes on IMDb who haven’t seen a movie made  before they were born), THE DARK KNIGHT.
