Arthouse Legends Podcast

Welcome to Arthouse Legends Podcast - Where High Art and Geek Culture Collide! The goal of this podcast is to take a look at critically acclaimed and well-received films and consider if these films truly deserve their revered status in the cultural zeitguest. Using our combined film knowledge, geeky obsessions and general fart jokes, we take a bite out of much-beloved films, sometimes in love, other times in scorn, but never out-of-bounds.

As two comic book titans are about the square off against one another in theaters, Arthouse Legends has decided to weigh in on the fight over fifty years in the making. On one corner, we look at Superman from his 1978 film directed by Richard Donner. On the other, we look at Batman as directed by Tim Burton from 1989. Both were widely recieved with acclaim that has survived recastings, remakes and Bat-nipples. But which one is better superhero? And more importantly, which is the better film? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster measure the tale of the tape to find out.
