S01E03 – Memento (2000)

Leaving the genre of comic book movies, we turn to a director most famous for his comic book movies and discuss Christopher Nolan’s Memento. We also remember a bunch of dead people you’ve never heard of and recommend a film you’ve never heard of by a director you’ve never heard of. In between desperately trying to stay on topic, we exchange theories on what happened in the story, before laughing about a story about laughing.

S01E02 – Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (Ultimate Edition) (2016)

In this episode we continue to insult America, get sidetracked by politics, discuss different waves of feminism, I get confused while spelling words, and we talk with a lisp for a while. Also, in less conversational and more long winded fashion I walk my mom through Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (Ultimate Edition) to fill in the gaps she either slept through or simply won’t get as a non-fan. Spoilers: she still isn’t a fan and I have to improvise a speech explaining why I am in fact a fan of intertextuality and challenging, ambitious movies. My mom also promised a prize on my behalf to anyone who got a relatively obscure reference without specifying what that would be, so if you want to win literally anything within reason…

S01E01 – Man of Steel (2013)

Hi and welcome! This is the first episode of Stealing the Remote, a podcast where I make my mom watch whatever I want to! Please enjoy as I assess her complete lack of comics knowledge and introduce her to the world of DC Films through Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. She in turn teaches me things I never knew about pop culture during the decades I didn’t live through, as well as kitchen appliances I hadn’t heard of. Together we struggle to find the word “spandex.”
I hope you’ll like this fresh perspective of a first-timer entering the world of comic book movies, albeit at gunpoint.
