Another bonus episode, this time covering 1983's superlative Superman III! Joined by 2 superb guests, Jack Graham and Daniel Harper, we talk about this sublime early 80's summer blockbuster superhero movie. Among cackling glee and unrestrained joy, listen out for:

  • My fawning adulation for Christopher Reeve
  • The nightmares! The nightmares!
  • Helpless laughter
  • The 4th Doctor connection (Daniel's excellent theory)
  • How this movie fits with the Zack Snyder Superman films
  • The brilliance of Richard Pryor
  • Why Superman is such an appealing power fantasy
  • The obsession of 80's cinema with the 50's

 

And much, much more.  

Jack and Daniel's separate and collaborative writing and podcasting can both be found here:

For this episode of Watching Robocop with Kit Power, I’m delighted to be joined by Kayleigh Edwards, blogger, author, and playwright. Kayleigh is a brilliant writer of fiction and nonfiction, and an epic cultural critic. Enjoy a free flowing conversation that takes in:

 

 

  • Blatant Lost Boys baiting
  • Being from the valleys
  • “If in doubt, look for a feminist angle”
  • Star Wars prequel digression and bad CGI
  • The unfairness of King’s talent even off his tits
  • Kay giving me nightmares about my fave film
  • Moshpits and safety
  • Walking Dead S2 and why people who hated it are wrong
  • ME saying ‘Walking Dead fans are THE WORST’
  • Reviews and spoilers
  • King’s endings and movie adaptations
  • No such thing as reading too many feminist blogs
  • My supreme confidence that Trump is going to lose and how
  • Why and how Brexit happened
  • Is Robocop body horror?
  • Maximum bad guy face

 

And SO much more. :)

Welcome to episode 2 of Watching Robocop with Kit Power! This time out, I am overjoyed to welcome Daniel Harper (Of Oi! Spaceman, They Must Be Destroyed On Sight! Podcasts AND Eruditorum Press fame) to the show. Enjoy us riffing on movie cops Vs. real cops, me on the myth of prevention, and Daniel on Black Lives Matters and what Robocop doesn’t have to say about real life police brutality. Oh, and two white male progressives talking about race, which, you know, doesn't get awkward at all. Enjoy!!!

 

Oi! Spaceman (a Doctor Who love story) podcast is here. They Must Be Destroyed on site movie podcast is here. My guest appearances on both shows can be found here and here.  And Daniel and Shana’s blog work (along with a bunch of other great writing) can be found on the Eruditorum Press website here.

 

My monthly Ginger Nuts Of Horror blog ‘My Life In Horror’, which kicked off this whole thing, can be found here.
