Episode 29: The Dark Knight
Good evening, listeners (Ledger Joker voice, RIP), and welcome back to another episode of Cinemaversary! This was one of the most anticipated movies that we drafted for this year, and we think the episode lives up to the hype.

Is this the greatest movie ever made?Show Notes:0:00:00 to 0:13:05 - Introductions, history with Batman, memories of the movie, spoiler-free thoughts0:14:37 to 1:10:01 - Act 1 Thoughts and Feelings1:11:20 to 2:01:19 - Act 2 Thoughts and Feelings2:02:36 to 2:42:47 - Act 3 Thoughts and Feelings2:42:47 to END - Final Thoughts and conclusions

Episode 26: Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Hello listeners, and thanks for checking back on Cinemaversary. Hopefully nobody is "forgetting" about us! As we move into summer, we're moving more towards a bi-weekly show just due to time commitments. At any rate, on this episode, Kyle is joined by Matt Malecki from the Real Fans 4 Real Movie Facebook group to discuss the 2008 rom-com Forgetting Sarah Marshall. This was actually the second recording of the episode, the first one was lost (more details on that in the episode), so unfortunately Thomas only makes a brief cameo at the end of the podcast to sum up his thoughts.Notes:0:00 to 9:28 - Introduction; Spoiler-free thoughts11:17 to 31:01 - Act 1 Thoughts32:05 to 58:04 - Act 2 Thoughts1:02:30 to 1:25:39 - Act 3 Thoughts1:25:39 to END - Final Thoughts & Thomas cameo

Episode 25: Man of Steel
What if a podcast dreamed of being something otherthan what society had intended? What if a podcast aspired to something greater? Well, I would say that's pretty darn weird because a podcast is not a sentient being with consciousness! Anyway, this is part 2 of our Superman review series. On last episode, Kyle and Thomas were joined by Rebecca Johnson from Supergril Radio (Show Twitter: @SupergirlRadio & Personal Twitter: @Derbykid) to discuss Superman '78, and for this episode we got the band back together to talk about 2013's Man of Steel. Spoiler alert, we all love the movie so DCEU haters will probably be disappointed with our overwhelming positivity for this film. Thanks for listening, and we hope you enjoy the episode!Show Notes:0:00 to 15:14 - Introductions, tale of the tape, memories of the film, build-up to the movie and initial reactions17:09 to 1:03:33 - Act 1 thoughts and feelings1:04:57 to 1:38:03 - Act 2 thoughts and feelings1:40:12 to 2:15:56 - Act 3 thoughts and feelings2:15:57 to 2:28:44 - Cavill's performance, legacy of the movie 5 years later, concluding thoughts2:28:45 to END - Rate & review Cinemaversary Twitter: @Cinemaversary17

It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's Cinemaversary! This was a very special episode for Kyle and Thomas, since each of them view Superman as one of their favorite fictional characters. In order to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of the movie, Kyle asked one of the biggest Superman fans he knows to guest appear on the show, and that is Rebecca Johnson from Supergirl Radio (Show Twitter: @SupergrilRadio & Personal Twitter: @Derbykid8). Discussions include - characterizations of Lex Luthor, Superman, and Lois Lane, how the movie holds up after 40 years, John Williams music, issues with the humor of the villains, and more!Show Notes:0:00 to 15:13 - Introductions, tale of the tape, memories of the film, history with Superman as a character15:43 to 47:12 - Act 1 thoughts and feelings49:00 to 1:26:57 - Act 2 thoughts and feelings1:28:58 to 1:50:15 - Act 3 thoughts and feelings1:50:16 to END - Concluding thoughts, rate & review Cinemaversary Twitter: @Cinemaversary17
