In our latest mini-sode, the Jerks tackle the Debate To End All Debates (For Now): What is the greatest superhero movie of all time? Which movies belong on the Mount Rushmore of superhero films? Their opinions may or may not surprise you, but they’ll definitely enrage you!
The Jerks break down the flurry of moves the Cavs made at the NBA trade deadline, Josh McDaniels leaving the Colts at the altar and the lack of Olympic excitement. Plus, was the DC-Black Panther smear campaign a frame job? We’re also talking about a bunch of other DC movie and TV news and discussing the latest trailers for Deadpool and Venom! Download, listen, buy the t-shirt!
The matchup is set for Super Bowl LII, and the Jerks are not happy about it. Plus, Paul Pierce’s pettiness, and did the NFL get revenge on Bob Costas? The Jerks also discuss the (needless) return of Superman’s red trunks (underwear on the outside … yay.), the new Flashpoint directing team and gloat about yet another correct prediction by Nostra-Dumb-Ass. T2J: We don’t like to be right all the time, yet here we are!
2017 is over, and what a year it was! The Jerks look back on the biggest stories of the year in sports and geek culture, from the Mayweather-McGregor fight, to the NFL anthem protests, Wonder Woman making history and Disney buying up everything. Plus, what we learned this year (and what pissed us off), and bold predictions for 2018! T2J: The bad habit you should never resolve to quit!
We’re getting near the end of the college football season, and there’s a whole lot of griping and breaking down the corrupt-as-hell College Football Playoff system. Plus, Nostra-Dumb-Ass may have been right about Derrick Rose, a discussion of where Warner Brothers goes now after Justice League‘s box office failure and a whole lot more! T2J – undefeated and still unranked!
It’s here! The Jerks have been following every aspect of the production of Justice League, and we finally saw it! We’ll cover the whole thing: the good, the bad and everything in between!
I, Ric Susman, am channeling my inner “Parker Lewis” right now. Because when it comes to the Justice League movie, I, like Parker, can’t lose.
When the movie was announced I was instantly concerned. Man of Steel wasn’t great, BvS: DoJ was terrible (It was Green Lantern bad.), so I was pretty sure JL would also be, as the French say, “Le Butt Trash.”
Since we are just 3 weeks (Really!) away from the biggest movie for the entire DCEU and what could be the most important movie in DC Comics history period, I have come to a conclusion. No matter what happens, I am going to come out smelling like a rose.
This is the very simple math that will confirm the impossibility of my “losing.” Either (a) this movie is terrible and I was right to call it such from jump, or (b) this movie is great and I have to eat crow for a wonderful reason. I would be over the moon with (b). It means that my favorite characters and my favorite universe are finally moving in the right direction on the big screen. So, if I have to admit I was wrong, I am TOTALLY DOWN with that.
However, if it’s (a) and this movie is the most dumpstery fire in the history of dumpsters being on fire, then I was right all along. If you listen to our show, you know that I value being right a hell of a lot more than being happy. So I would be very proud to have predicted this outcome, while also being devastated that the film I’ve been waiting my whole life for sucked all the ass.
So, there you have it. I either win, or a take an L but still win because Justice League wasn’t terrible. No matter how you slice it, I can’t really lose. Parker Lewis may be gone but his spirit lives on in my general disdain and modicum of hope.
