Matinee Heroes

Craig offers up episode 33 of Matinee Heroes (@matineeheroes on twitter) featuring the movie Jaws!

Matinee Heroes is a podcast where Craig Price and Alan Cerny take a movie that spotlights heroic cinema, take lessons from said hero and apply them to their own lives. They’ve already done a live episode at Comicpalooza in June,  partnered with Alamo Drafthouse to host movie parties and special screenings and have even created merch! Yes actual merchandise with t-shirts that have their mascot Manny T. Hero the manatee in various movies like a manatee Indiana Jones and manatee Ripley from Aliens as well as their latest which is the Jaws poster in Manatee form.  Joel Micah Harris designs these exclusively for the podcast and they’re awesome.

Episode 222 – Maximiliano Hernandez and Christina Wren / audio

Superhero movies

Maximiliano Hernandez (@maxitois4real on twitter) and Christina Wren (@ChristinaSWren on twitter) join host Craig Price to discuss their roles in superhero movies.

It’s a crossover episode! Craig’s latest podcast project Matinee Heroes spotlighted the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier and included half of the interview from Marvelous Nerd Year’s Eve with Max (they’re close enough pals to use shorter names) but Christina also was dishing out wisdom too. So why waste such good stuff? Craig wouldn’t, of course. So here is their interview in its entirety.  The three have a great discussion on how Marvel’s (Max appeared in Thor, Avengers and other Marvel projects) process compares to DC’s (Christina appeared in Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman), how they found out they were going to be in these huge blockbuster movies and what it’s like meeting Robert Redford.  They also take questions from the audience as well.

Be sure to check out Matinee Heroes each week! What is Matinee Heroes? It is a podcast dedicated to exploring hero cinema – from adventurers, heroes, to superheroes; from Jedi to buddy cops; from the Wild West, to the distant past, to futures both hopeful and dystopian, from ancient lands to the deepest reaches of outer space. In a time when we need heroes more than ever, Alan and Craig will try to understand just what makes our cinematic heroes tick, and how we can use that heroism in our everyday life.

Episode 221 – Alan Cerny – 2017 Oscar Predictions / audio

2017 Oscar Predictions

Alan Cerny (@NordlingCS on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss their 2017 Oscar Predictions.  It’s Season 7! It wouldn’t be Reality Check if the season didn’t start with the Oscars.  Craig and Alan predict their choices for the 2017 Academy Awards, why the Oscars seemed to come down to about 7 movies, why someone should have or shouldn’t have been nominated as well as who they think WILL win and who they think SHOULD win. Craig rails against La-La-Land, especially Ryan Gosling, Alan talk about the importance of a movie like Moonlight, they argue if Elle was a mansplaining movie and they both plug their new spin-off podcast, Matinee Heroes.

Each February, past guest and friend of the show, Thom Singer has his annual fundraiser for the Kate Singer Endowment for Cranio-Facial Research. It’s a good cause and the money goes to the Dell Children’s Medical Center out of Austin and Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. Please consider donating by clicking here to donate.
