On December 15, 1978, Superman was released in theaters, paving the way for a new film genre and legitimizing superheroes in general. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this classic, Shawn shows it to self-professed Superman agnostic T.C. Padgett. The pair discusses T.C.'s reaction to his first viewing, whether or not it changed his opinions on Superman and why the Man of Steel seems to be such a tough character to adapt in this day and age.
For the historic 50th episode of Missing Frames, Shawn is joined once more by Brad Gullickson of ITMODcast and Rest.In.Pictures Podcast to watch one of Brad's favorite movies: Big Trouble in Little China. Will Shawn embrace this film the same way Brad has, or will its zany blend of martial arts, action and humor be too much for him? Tune in to find out.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick's science-fiction masterpiece, Shawn sits down with his wife Sarah for her first ever viewing of 2001: A Space Odyssey. They discuss the film's legacy, what it all means (and whether it really matters if you know what it all means) and the difference between 'boring' and 'slow.'
Even though it's officially November, Missing Frames managed to fit in one final Halloween movie. This time around Sarah Eastridge and Alexis Bethea show Shawn one of their favorite cinematic staples of the season: Hocus Pocus. Will Shawn enjoy Hocus Pocus, or is this one strictly drive by nostalgia? Tune in to find out.
