So over the last year or so I’ve been making the rounds of other faith-and-film podcasts, from Screenfish to Reel World Theology and Popcorn Theology. Sometimes it’s just easier and more fun to talk film – and faith – with friends! Sometimes you find a unique synchronicity, other times friendly arguments ensue, but it’s always fun. I figured it’d be good to link to them here…
From Reel World Theology…
It seems audiences and critics are as divided as our heroes are on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We bring in two huge comic and superhero fans in James Harleman and JR Forasteros to talk about what they liked and didn’t like about Warner Bros. latest DC comic adaptation. The conversation does not disappoint because we try to decipher what makes a movie truly bad from what makes it enjoyable, why we need to get used to Batman killing, how awesome we all think Wonder Woman is, films that wear their theology on their sleeve, and we also release some of our pent-up Man of Steel angst that is STILL brewing from three years ago!
And From Popcorn Theology
We also revisited Man of Steel in this podcast before the BvS release
David and Richard are joined by James Harleman of Cinemagogue to talk about Man of Steel. Of course we looked at the obvious parallels between Clark Kent and our actual Savior, but we also talk about fatherhood, submission, the ethics of terminating life for the greater good, and more!
