We’re not shy about our love of Terry Gilliam around here. So join the Traumatic Cinematic crew as we journey into a desert so damn real one must soak oneself in dangerous drugs just to get a handle on it. From the mind of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson and the dark heart of the early-70s comes a saga of desperation, death and debauchery, filmed as only a former Python could. As your attorney I advise you to listen to this show with a friend and partially intoxicated. Turn it into a drinking game and every time Mr. DeMoss makes an obscure reference take a drink (please don’t do this, you will die! – M) This is the first show recorded fully with the new recording equipment so if it sounds terrible (or maybe amazingly good) blame it on the hardware, not the operator. Unlike the first 67 shows this one has 2 count them TWO intermissions which means double the audio fun!Subscribe to us on iTunes- https://itunes.apple.com/us/
Immediately, you should ask yourself, What the fuck is up with that title? Are we going after that Quentin Tarantino demographic, Warner Brothers? Because if we are, you missed your chance when you fucked up Superman: Doomsday, back in 2007.
So you look this up on IMDB, because you’re a lazy hack who made the mistake of getting a “real” job back in 2008 instead of reading comic books, which would’ve been more fulfilling, spiritually and financially. That’s when you find this is based on an Action Comics arc by now-designated wunderkind Geoff Johns. And your heart sinks at the sight of his name. Or it should. Mine certainly does, because Johns is a mixed bag of a comic book writer if ever there was one.
My more conservative colleagues (the ones who still recoil in horror whenever Precious Bodily Fluids appear in comic books – after all, The Children might be watching, and these people can’t go a day without patronizing The Children – all of them, everywhere, including you; yes, you, because you are A Child if you don’t immediately agree with them and submit to their preferred proto-fascist Strong Father archetype) like to criticize his lack of restraint and habit of killing or sidelining characters he doesn’t like. Every writer does this to some degree, but Johns captured himself a fan base by deliberately doing it in the name of “fixing” certain excesses of the 1990s. Especially when it came to Green Lantern.

The trio have been re-united and the formula has been locked in! Things at the Traumatic Cinematic studios are really picking up with the sudden way of listeners from the multiple new venues where our show is available. Welcome one and all and please come back! There is lots here and we really want to interact with your brain!
It has been a fast 7 days yet that is plenty enough to fill this show seem to seem with amazing relevent pop culture information. We lost one half of the 80′s one-hit-wonder band Kriss Kross, watched some awesome TV (like Doctor Who and Game of Thrones), discuss how The Great Gatsby needs more modern tones along with cell phones, and if aliens are the new zombies! Mike shared some awesome new trailers with the crew which are all listed in Mike’s Notes and find out what the guys think about Netflix’s new series Hemlock Grove. There is so many reasons to check this show out so find one and DO IT YOU CHEEKY MONKEY!
Keep your Percy Jacksons, your Eragons, and your Wardrobes. The Traumatic Cinematic Podcast is going over the Wall and into the head of modern comic book god Neil Gaiman as we discuss the 2007 adaption of his graphic novel Stardust. How did we (good comic book and fantasy nerds all) miss a film that looks this good, never mind this weird? How and features such a heavy-hitting cast (Michelle Pfeiffer, Claire Danes, Mark Strong, Ricky Gervais, Peter O’Toole, Robert! Fucking! De Niro!) not make boats of cash? Why was this not an instant fantasy classic in its own time, or ours? And should it be? Come with us as we explore the directorial debut of Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class helmer Matthew Vaughn and find out of this film bewitched us or turned us all into frogs.Subscribe to us on iTunes- https://itunes.apple.com/us/

Full disclosure: I, and by extension And You Thought It Was Safe, received what I believe you English call a “right proper” in the midst of the following discussion. If I’ve done nothing but connect intelligent, articulate, and downright hilarious people, despite the literal oceans between them, then these mad piles of swearing, invective and spelling errors have not all been in vain. And if the Iad Uroboros broke through tomorrow, I’d great them a happy man with both middle fingers in the air.
In a blink of an eye the last 7 days are gone and here we are bringing the world another addition of our Events cast. Mike and MuGumBo bring you the highlights in pop culture while Mr. DeMoss slipped away for the evening to attend Iron Man 3‘s opening night. Hear Mike’s C2E2 recap from last weekend, some exciting Gen Con 2013 news, listen while MuGumBo opens Magic the Gathering booster packs, and hear the two’s opinions on our favorite TV’s shows that aired this week. Don’t be surprised to hear some solid David DeMoss impersonations while listening.
Mike’s Show Notes-
Free Comic Book Day!! http://www.freecomicbookday.
Being three proud citizens of the U.S. of A., Our Heroes had to wait a week before Iron Man 3 debuted in their local theaters. To distract ourselves from the injustices of international Big Studio release schedules we traveled back to Tokyo and that magical time in the late 80s when technology and the occult were conspiring to kill everyone and their sociopathic girlfriend. Join us as we plumb the depths of cyberpunk cult auteur Shinya Tsukamoto and his 16mm feature Tetsuo: The Iron Man. It has nothing to do with “your” Iron Man, and not too terribly much to do with Akira, either…apart from a coincidence of one character’s name and a few key themes. Which ones? Well, you’ll have to listen in and see, won’t you? But beware the Vengeful Dead. They’re just waiting to kick your ass and replace your dick with a bloodthirsty power drill.
