We are an up and coming bi-weekly podcast that discusses all things movies, superheroes, and all things nerdy. Your hosts John Pelzel and Justin Speck discuss movies they love (and some they don't love) and often get side-tracked doing so. We're also constantly uploading mini-reviews whenever we watch a movie. Artwork by: Melissa Wolfert Music Theme by: Another Day Gone

Eighteen years after the original Jurassic Park, we were blessed (cursed?) with the second sequel, simply titled Jurassic Park III. Spielberg decided he had enough fun directing dinosaurs, so Joe Johnston stepped in to helm the third film and introduced us to a new dinosaur, the Spinosaurus. Returning to the franchise is Sam Neil as Dr. Alan Grant …
 
Marvel has done it again. Back in 2012, they blew our minds by putting Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk in a movie together, something we'd never seen before. And now, they've introduced the multiverse and brought characters from previous Spider-Man movies into this new film. Another cinematic first. In a Superheroes, Movies & Superhero…
 
It's the holidays and if you're like John and Justin, you watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation every year. It has become a holiday classic worthy of annual repeated viewings. The third film in the Vacation franchise is arguably the most beloved. Starring Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Randy Quaid, Juliette Lewis and Johnny Galecki. Grab some…
 
2022 is bringing us a lot of movies, assuming that they all actually come out and don't get pushed back until 2023! There have been quite a few releases lately so I think we'll be OK and actually get to see these movies in the upcoming year. SmoothJStew is back to talk with Justin about the movies they're most excited to see in the new year. What a…
 
We've been waiting for a Ghostbusters 3 for years. Rumors of a third film popped up every so often but after the death of Harold Ramis, and the release of the 2016 reboot, it seemed the hopes of ever seeing a continuation of our favorite supernatural exterminators were all but, well, busted. And, to be fair, Ghostbusters Afterlife is not the sequel…
 
Today's episode is the sequel to John McTiernan's classic Predator. This time around the Predator is in a different kind of jungle: Los Angeles, California! Danny Glover is a hardened cop who doesn't play by the rules and has a fear of heights that plays no part in the story whatsoever, who's trying to take down local gangs but someone (or some THI…
 
Coming off the successful film The Terminator, James Cameron's next film was the sequel to Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi horror masterpiece Alien. Picking up right where Alien ended (kind of), Ripley finds herself having to face not just one alien but a whole nest of aliens including the Queen! With an all-star cast, this film is very different from i…
 
Continuing our animated series, SmoothJStew returns to talk about Batman & Mr. Freeze: Subzero! Released in 1998, this straight-to-video movie feels more like an extended episode of Batman: The Animated Series, and that ain't a bad thing! If only the live action Batman & Robin could have had a Mr. Freeze like the one in this movie! Featuring Robin …
 
Back in 2007, Warner Bros animation decided to start producing animated feature films based on characters from DC Comics starting with Superman: Doomsday, based on the Death of Superman storyline. 14 years and over 50 films later, they're still pumping them out every year and personally, I'm happy they are. So let's revisit the first movie and see …
 
Following the success of the animated TV series, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm was meant to be a direct-to-video movie until Warner Bros. decided to release it theatrically. They believed in the film and thought it could be a big success. It opened on Christmas Day in 1993 at #11 and went on to make over $5.6 million dollars. According to Wikipedia,…
 
If at first you don't succeed, try again with a different writer/director! After the financially succesful but poorly received Suicide Squad in 2016, Warner Bros. decided to try again but this time with James Gunn, who directed the two Guardians of the Galaxy movies for Marvel. Also this time around the film is R rated. With a new cast of character…
 
It's finally here! Episode 100! Thank you to everyone who has listened to us, whether you've listened since the beginning or if you're new to the podcast. We appreciate you and are incredibly thankful that you enjoy listening to us. We couldn't think of a better movie to do for our 100th episode than The Dark Knight, directed by Christopher Nolan a…
 
Three years after the release of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford return for Indiana Jones's next adventure (Although, technically this takes place before Raiders)! A darker film than Raiders, Indy is tasked with finding a magical stone that has been stolen from a small village (along with all the children o…
 
After a seven year wait, we finally got another, serious Batman movie. Gone were the campy, toy-sales driven, bat-nipple filled Batman movies. The fans wanted Batman taken seriously and director Christopher Nolan delivered the goods. Set in a much more realistic universe, Nolan gave us a Batman origin story, which was something we'd yet to see. It …
 
Marvel is finally back at the movies! Black Widow was supposed to be released in the summer of 2020 but thanks to Covid, got delayed. It is finally out so Justin and special guest SmoothJStew discuss the first movie of Marvel's Phase 4. Taking place in between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, Natasha is on the run from the gov…
 
Jurassic Park was a huge deal. Especially to people like me who were kids when it was released. So the sequel to Jurassic Park was also a huge deal. I remember my excitement level was through the roof. Seeing the trailers and knowing there were two T-Rexes and more dinosaurs was almost too much to handle. Did it meet expectations? This one was a fu…
 
They're back! Two Time Galaxy Savers! Director James Gunn brings back his galactic heroes for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2! Released in 2017, it was a pretty big success for Marvel and Gunn. This time around we meet Ego, who claims to be Peter's dad, played by the always cool Kurt Russell. We've also got Mantis and a few other character…
 
It's hard to imagine a time before Predator. Predators (and the xenomorphs from Alien) have been such a big part of pop culture for most of Justin and John's lives that it's hard to think of a world without these crazy creatures. Growing up there were the movies, the video games, the action figures, and eventually, the crossover movies! But this mo…
 
In 2014, we saw the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man, with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone returning and bringing villains Electro and Rhino to the big screen for the first time. Director Marc Webb also returned and the movie was met with a less than stellar reception. In fact, it would be the last Andrew Garfield Spider-Man movie before Tom Holland…
 
In space, no one can hear you scream. 1979 delivered Ridley Scott's Alien and started a franchise that would last for nearly forty years (so far). The first Alien movie is a sci-fi horror film and the guys discuss whether it stands the test of time. Check it out and let us know what you think of Alien! Watch this episode on YouTube! Cinema Heroes F…
 
Following Batman v Superman, we were introduced to the Suicide Squad, a team of bad guys coerced into saving the day! Written and directed by David Ayer, it was met with about the same reception as Batman v Superman, and people have really strong opinions on Jared Leto's portrayal of the Joker. This also marks the first live action portrayal of Har…
 
One year after The Fellowship of the Ring was released, we got The Two Towers. This film gave us a proper introduction to Gollum and introduced us to a few new characters including Treebeard. How does the second film in the fantasy franchise hold up? Check out what the guys think and let us know what YOU think! Watch this episode on YouTube! Cinema…
 
Following the hugely successful X2: X-Men United, director Bryan Singer left the franchise to direct Superman Returns and Brett Ratner stepped in to helm the third X-Men film. Although considered one of the worst films of the franchise, there were still seven X-Men films that followed it. How's it hold up fifteen years later? Check out what the guy…
 
The wait is finally over. The theatrical version of Justice League made its way into theaters in November of 2017, now here we are in March of 2021 finally able to see Zack Snyder's original vision of the film. Some said it would never happen, that a cut didn't exist. Well, here we are. So, was it worth the wait? Was Darkseid as awesome as he looke…
 
The third installment of the Star Trek movie franchise finds the crew disobeying Starfleet orders to try and save their friend Spock! But wait, didn't Spock die? Yes! And maybe not really! Find out what the guys think of Leonard Nimoy's directorial debut and let us know what you think! Watch this episode on YouTube! Cinema Heroes Facebook Twitter…
 
Along with Return of the Jedi, 1983 brought us another part 3 that is... well, not as widely loved. Christopher Reeve returns as the Man of Steel, but gone are Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder (mostly), and really anything that made the first two movies so darn great. But we do get Superman fighting Clark Kent, and maybe the closest thing to a big-scree…
 
Released roughly six months after Part II, Back to the Future Part III finds Marty McFly in the old west trying to save his buddy Doc Brown from 'Mad Dog' Tannen (not Tanner as Justin incorrectly states in this episode). Where does the third film rank among the other two and what do YOU think about Back to the Future Part III? Let us know! Watch th…
 
The first film of Phase II finds Tony Stark with anxiety due to the events of The Avengers. He can't sleep, he just keeps tinkering with his suits and gadgets, and now there's a new threat: The Mandarin. What did the guys think of the third and final Iron Man movie? Let us know what you think! Watch this episode on YouTube! Cinema Heroes Facebook T…
 
The year is 1999. Many excellent movies came out in 1999 but perhaps the greatest (depending on who you ask) was the genre bending sci-fi flick called The Matrix starring Keanu Reeves. It's impact on cinema and pop culture is undeniable and the guys really enjoyed talking about this one. Let us know what you think of episode and The Matrix! Check t…
 
Warner Bros. decided to do something interesting and have a movie that's not in the universe that was set up with 2013's Man of Steel. Doesn't sound too crazy, but in the world of connected films and shared universes, this actually seemed to be thinking out of the box. Todd Phillips directed Joaquin Phoenix in an Oscar winning performance as Gotham…
 
The movie that put James Cameron on the map and made Arnold Schwarzenegger a household name (or maybe he already was? We don't know. We were babies when this movie came out!). The film was a big hit and Arnold would forever be connected to his Terminator character, especially after it's hugely successful follow-up a few years later. How does the fi…
 
At the beginning of the superhero movie boom, Marvel released The Punisher starring Thomas Jane and John Travolta. The last Punisher movie was in 1989 starring Dolph Lundgren. Now we've got the skull shirt! How does this compare and does it hold up? Let us know what you think! Check this episode out on YouTube! Cinema Heroes Facebook Twitter…
 
The final episode of the Skywalker Saga was released in December of 2019 and it is the worst reviewed Star Wars film (according to Rotten Tomatoes). Could the final movie really be that bad? Did the Last Jedi haters like it or did it just create more bad blood between the die hard fans and Disney? Most importantly, what did the guys think? Check it…
 
The first theatrically released animated Spider-Man movie follows the story of high-schooler Miles Morales as he gains superpowers and meets other people with similar abilities from alternate realities! Sounds confusing but it works really well. Check out what the guys thought of it and let us know what YOU think! Cinema Heroes Facebook Twitter…
 
In 2001 the world saw the live action adaptation of the best selling book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. The books had a huge following even before the movies came out, so the cast and crew had enormous pressure to get this right. Did they do it? Check it out and hear what the guy's think of the first Harry Potter installment and be sure to…
 
Justin and John are back with an episode on the Justice League. Brought together for the first (and so far only) time on the big screen in November of 2017 by Zack Snyder (kind of) and Joss Whedon. Whose movie is this, really? Did they do the team justice (pun intended)? Did it work without giving the other heroes their own movies first like their …
 
The highly anticipated sequel to 2015's The Force Awakens arrived in December of 2017 and fans couldn't wait to see the return of Luke Skywalker. Finally! The hero of the story was back and was going to show the First Order who was boss! And this movie was for sure going to tell us who Rey's parents are and who Supreme Leader Snoke is, right? Right…
 
In 2016, Marvel introduced Black Panther to the MCU in Captain America: Civil War. In 2018, we got our first Black Panther solo film. It went on to be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. And in 2020, we sadly lost Chadwick Boseman who brought Black Panther to life. How does the movie hold up as a superhero movie? And what do you think…
 
Thirty-one years after their Excellent Adventure, and twenty-eight years after their Bogus Journey, Bill & Ted are back to Face the Music. They're in their late forties and still trying to write the song that will unite the world. But what if they can't do it? What happens then? Well, according to Rufus' daughter, the world and reality as we know i…
 
Released two years after the original Bill & Ted, this movie finds our heroes being... assassinated! Bill & Ted Go To Hell was supposedly the original title but was (thankfully) changed to Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey. Along for the ride is Death, played by the great William Sadler, who helps them battle evil robot Bill & Ted so they can play at the …
 
After being introduced in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman gets her very first live action motion picture. Directed by Patty Jenkins, Gal Gadot reprises her role as the Amazon princess. How does her standalone movie rank among the other DC films? What did the guys think? Check it out! www.cinemaheroes.com www.facebook.com/sma…
 
History is about to be rewritten by two guys who can't spell. That's the tagline (on the DVD) for 1989's Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. This bumbling duo save the world... eventually. But first they have to pass their history exam! Thanks to a friend from the future and his time-traveling phone booth, Bill and Ted may just have a chance! Did the…
 
The Avengers are back and finally battling Thanos, who has been working in the background ever since 2012's The Avengers. Thanos is attempting to gather the six Infinity Stones for his gauntlet so he can wipe out half of the universe's population. It's up to The Avengers to stop him! Justin and John are also back after about a year and a half. What…
 
Remember Planet Hulk? How about Planet Hulk but instead of Hulk being the main character who gets imprisoned, how about Thor? Then Hulk can be on the planet, too. And they'll fight in the arena! And Cate Blanchett can play the Goddess of Death. Sounds good! This week the guys take on Thor 3 otherwise known as Thor: Ragnarok. At the time of this rec…
 
It's been 27 years since the last live action adaptation of IT. Coincidentally, IT comes back to Derry every 27 years... This week the guys discuss the new horror film based on Stephen King's classic novel. What did they think? How does it compare to the 1990 miniseries? Is Bill Skarsgård's Pennywise as good as Tim Curry's? www.cinemaheroes.com fac…
 
When Marvel announced their decision to make a movie based on Ant-Man, it probably felt like a risk. Not as well known as Iron Man or Captain America, would people go see a movie about a character who can shrink to the size of an insect? It's ranked 14th among the MCU movies, so while not as big of a hit as Guardians of the Galaxy, still not a flop…
 
After The Motion Picture, the folks behind Star Trek decided to go back to the original series to find their villain and what an excellent choice they made. Khan, after being abandoned on Ceti Alpha V, is back to exact his revenge on Kirk and crew. And revenge, as we all know, is a dish best served cold. www.cinemaheroes.com www.facebook.com/smands…
