Mamo #263: Up, Up and Away

The Dark Knight rises again! Our last show on The Dark Knight Rises dealt necessarily with serious and troubling events offscreen. We return to the topic of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy to uphold and celebrate the vast achievements and influences of this genre-defining enterprise, and to look ahead - to Superman, Man of Steel, Nightwing, and any other thing that might be waiting in the (bat)wings.

Mamo #262: Mamo Rises

It wasn't the show we were expecting to do, but here we are anyway: in the wake of the murders in Colorado, we discuss Christopher Nolan's final Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises.

Mamo #261: Don't Hate

With no big news out of Comic Con yet, we briefly discuss the Hobbit's 48fps woes before diving into an off-the-cuff discussion of suspension of disbelief, haters, and whether we've all just become too cool for movie school, before tying a bow on it with thoughts on Shorts That Are Not Pants, the Shinsedai Film Festival, and all the other soldiers bringing light to the screen out of nothing more than their pursuit of bliss.
