Today's episode sets the tone with a classic Star Wars spot promoting collector's cups. From those archives, we turn our attention to classic comics. Specifically, we take a look at the 1992 graphic novel about the death of Superman and discuss whether or not it should be turned into a movie. Would it be better than Batman vs. Superman? Would it be the big box office splash that DC and Warner Brothers would like to see? We attempt to answer those questions.
Some of the most anticipated movies of 2014 are finally hitting theaters and more will be here soon. So, we stop to gauge the level of enthusiasm on some of the geek films that are up next.
