After last week’s superhero-free effort, it’s time for the opposite! Nick and Alastair have seen Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and one of them disliked it more than the other! Find out which is which at the 3:03 mark (plus the repeated futility of Doomsday and what Nick has in common with Wonder Woman), then witness our discussion of Daredevil season 2 at 32:10 (plus the weakness of the Kingpin and exactly when it’s time for the plebs).
We finally move away from capes in our climactic recommendation section at 53:05, with Nick watching Ari Folman’s sad animated documentary Waltz With Bashir at Alastair’s behest. But don’t worry, superpeople might make a last-minute comeback.

In yet another cut from our discussion of lost film genres, we wonder at the current small comeback the religious epic is enjoying. Yes, a short chat about Noah, just in time for Easter. (Also Exodus and Gods of Egypt.)

While discussing the failure of the musical genre to keep dominating Hollywood, Nick and Alastair slide into a tangential discussion of Glee, the “jukebox musical” and some other briefly-successful 2000s TV shows. But hey, at least they know they’re off-topic.

A small bit cut from our review of Tom Hiddleston and Ben Wheatley’s High Rise film, in which Nick and Alastair discuss the plot in a shade more detail. Still not extreme spoilers but some mention of specific elements and moments.

In their first Moderate Fantasy Episode, Nick and Alastair discuss the new Deadpool movie at the 1:40 mark (plus the importance of humour in superhero movies and which Deadpool comics are terrible), the #RIPTwitter algorithmic timeline kerfuffle at 19:50 (plus the inevitability of Vine porn and if anything good will ever happen to anyone) and their verdict on Netflix’s Making A Murderer at 35:20 (plus the omnipresent evil of John Luther and whether true crime documentaries are the same as gladiatorial combat).
Our as-yet-unnamed recommendations feature shows up at 47:48 and waves.
