The Weekly Stuff Podcast #374 – Batman on Film Part 6: BATMAN & ROBIN (1997) with George Clooney
After a bit of a delay due to Sean and Jonathan being extremely reluctant to watch the actual movie, our ongoing Batman on Film series is back with the last Batman film of the 90s, and one of the worst movies ever made: Joel Schumacher’s Batman & Robin, a flop that’s just as terrible if not worse than Batman Forever in a whole host of ways, while offering a few improvements thanks to Arnold Schwarzenegger and especially Uma Thurman that can’t counteract the awfulness of the main Batman story. It’s an extremely bad movie and a painful, joyless watch, but makes for an entertaining conversation – and the Batman series is definitely looking up from here. We also cover a few pieces of stuff, like Jonathan playing Resident Evil 7 and Sean getting further in Yakuza: Like a Dragon, before paying tribute to the great Shunsuke Kikuchi, composer for Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, who passed away this week at the ripe old age of 89, and leaves behind a timeless legacy of incredible, series-defining music.
