For over fifty years filmmakers have been mining the rich history of DC Comics for inspiration, ideas, and adaptations. From Batman to John Constantine, many of DC’s best-known characters have appeared in one – or many – forms on the Silver Screen.

Opinions range far and wide on the quality of these live action portrayals, but there’s no denying their success and cultural impact over the years.

Live from the Cabana of Unrelenting Despair – Dave, Arian, and Mike Gordon discuss the current American pro wrestling scene!

AEW vs ROH vs NWA vs NXT vs WWE isn’t really a realistic competitive scenario, but in the hearts and minds of wrestling fans those are the terms of fandom. We can enjoy some or all of their products, but there must be favorites! Each organization is offering very different products. This means that we’re living in one of the very best eras to be a wrestling fan because there’s something for everyone.

Needless Things Podcast 301 – Red Dawn Needless Commentary

NT_301_pic.jpg

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

It’s January, which means it’s time for a fresh new year and a look at another Patrick Swayze film!

The looming threat of Communism was ever-present in 1984. Back then Americans didn’t go a day without thinking about the menace of the Soviet Union and the possibility of World War III breaking out literally at any minute. It was a time of great paranoia and greater patriotism. “America the Free” seemed like a powerful yet fragile concept that could be tested to the breaking point by our enemies across the ocean without warning.

Master filmmaker John Milius zeroed in on this national temperament with the classic action/drama Red Dawn. The Movie stars Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Lea Thompson, Jennifer Grey, Powers Boothe, Harry Dean Stanton, and Charlie Sheen in his first role.

Listen in as Dave, Arian, a returning Rad Ranger, and special guest Mike Gordon cheer on the Wolverines on the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!
