Real talk: adapting an obscure Canadian manga-themed six volume graphic novel series that mined its deeply nostalgic visual aesthetic from 70s-era video games was never going to be a box office hit. But in the hands of Edgar Wright, it makes for one hell of a visual treat! Join Snooty and Goon in the WABAC as they look at this quirky little 2008 film that deserves a lot more attention than it got.
Suit up with Snooty and Goon as they deconstruct WB's attempt to turn a movie about blatant marketing into a full-blown franchise while simultaneously making a Batman film that defies the current DCEU's tone while mercilessly mocking it. There's a lot going on here, and that's all before the movie starts.
