Ep196: Dark Knight of the Soul

Today, Ian and Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie form a dynamic duo to take on The Lego Batman Movie! How can a two-hour toy commercial mine more humor and pathos from the Caped Crusader's mythology than just about any live-action Batman film? And what does the movie's success mean for future live-action incarnations of the Dark Knight? The guys get into all of this and more, and even touch on whether or not Ian's reading of the original Lego Movie is off-base.

Also, Ian shares a reminder about tomorrow's kick-off of the limited engagement of Unbroken Glass at Chicago's Gene Siskel Film Center, featuring post-screening Q&A's with director Dinesh Das Sabu and special guests. And listen up for some info regarding an exclusive IFP Chicago meet-up for the film next Wednesday (2/22).

Lastly, there's a legal battle afoot regarding the public-domain status of Manos: The Hands of Fate. Ian has news of how you can help keep Manos free for the next half-century and beyond!

This is pure speculation, but Sad Affleck might just need a trauma blanket after listening to Episode 196!
