Superhero Fatigue. Real or not?
Lee, Matt, and Tristan are together again. This week they are discussing superhero fatigue if it is fact or fiction. DC, Marvel, Fox, all of them, keep churning out movie after movie that is usually the same plot that ends with a giant blue beam in the sky. Sometimes we see genuine innovation and other times we see companies just trying to keep the rights. Is it too much too fast? Are we all getting bored with all this action? Or are we all just getting bored with internet hype? All this and more are talked about in this episode.

Franchise films vs. Original movies: Is Hollywood running out of ideas?
This has been an ongoing argument for decades but it seems to be heating up. Tent pole films have become the norm and some would argue that original pictures are suffering. If that hypothesis is true, who is to blame? Is it the studio for putting out vapid franchises that make money or is it the consumer who keeps going to the theater to see it?
