Episode #59 of the Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind podcast sees Tee-J, Imran and Dan settle down to classic movies that we've never actually seen.
For the fourth in our 'catching up with the classics' series, we each pitch three movies we haven't seen to the group with them voting on which movie each person should watch. This go-round sees the team explore the glorious genre of 80s action movies as we seek to fill the gaps within our own catalogues. There's lots of preamble about the genre itself as we look at some of the icons of the time with a small dalliance into horror territory as well.
Plus we ask the all important questions, "What does the 'Tee' in 'Tee-J' stand for anyway?"
Tune into our next episode - Monday 4th July - to hear the full reviews for each of our picks.
Episode #58 of the Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind podcast sees the team ponder the increasingly darker portrayals of our big screen super heroes.
From the recent depiction of Matt Reeves' grittier and violent representation of 'The Batman' to Sam Raimi's heavily horror-inspired extension of the MCU's Dr Strange narrative, the team looks back at a simpler time when comic book movies where such themes weren't so prevalent within superhero movies. We seem to have moved on from an era of comic book adaptations treated as exclusive content for child- and family-friendly audiences but is the increased level of violence and adult content symptoms of these movies now being geared towards broader audiences or are today's children exposed to so much more now that the boundaries of what constitutes youth content have just evolved?
C.E.N.K. is represented on this episode by Tee-J Sutherland, Dan Collacott, Imran Mirza and long-time friend and broadcasting companion, Denis-Jose Francois.
