Superman, Making Your Own Short Film and Comparing Movies That Are Linked Thematically or by Release Date.
This week, Da7e, David, Patches and Katey are back with the first FITWR of 2014. Da7e and Patches both read Glen Weldon’s Superman: The Unauthorized Biography and learned a ton of facts about The Man of Steel (though not the movie, Man of Steel). But what’s the book’s greater purpose and would you enjoy it? Our FAVORITE listener voicemail EVER finds us giving advice on making a short film, then spend a justifiably long (and spoiler light, if not spoiler free) time discussing the validity of comparing American Hustle and Wolf of Wall Street so closely.
Take a listen, embed and/or download below; for more from all of us on Twitter: the show (@FITWR) Da7e (@da7e), David (@davidehrlich or @CriterionCorner), Patches (@misterpatches) and Katey (@kateyrich).
