What I've Learned From Film - Ep. 26 - Skyfall

In a brand new episode of What I've Learned From Film, James Bond's latest foray into the cinematic world, Skyfall is beaten, prodded, and evaluated. But it is deemed fit for 007 status? How does it fit into the rest of the James Bond filmography? Does it live up to the hype? Do James and M finally get married?

What I've Learned From Film - Ep. 25 - Samsara

What I've Learned From Film - Ep. 22 - The Dark Knight Rises

Holy smokes, Bat readers! The third (and final?) Batman movie in Christopher Nolan's trilogy has finally arrived in theaters everywhere and we were obligated to give this film not the podcast it needs, but the one it DESERVES. The Dark Knight Rises (starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman) had a lot to live up to after the gargantuan success of The Dark Knight. So is it the epic climax that everyone wished it to be? Or is it riddled with plot holes that renders it a giant mess?

Joining me in my fight against Bane are special guests Darele Ray and Josh Beekman.
