War Machine vs. War Horse: Batman v Superman (Kramer vs. Kramer vs. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World)

On this episode we have a battle with exes. After watching Warner Bros. apology for MAN OF STEEL in the form of BATMAN V SUPERMAN we bring on former host of this podcast, Jared Dotson, to reminisce about the format changes we’ve made to the show without having the character of Batman to fall back on. As a celebration of Jared’s appearance on the show, we discuss one of his favorite films, SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD, and see if the infatuations of a shallow young man still holds weight in our older years. Unfortunately we are much closer in age to the problems seen in KRAMER VS. KRAMER as Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep play a newly divorced couple fighting over custody of their son. A film very much of its time and seemingly a counter response to the women’s lib movement of the 70s, we discuss how the strong performances of Hoffman and Streep make up for the crushing disappointment that Meryl didn’t punch Dustin into a pile of a quarters. For more of that type of quality cinema, we turn to Zack Snyder’s newest meditation on motherhood in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE.
