Episode 08. DICK TRACY (1990)

Looks like somebody downloaded 24 Panels Per Second onto their watch!

In honour of this year's retro-styled blockbusters X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, David and Dru go through retro adaptations of years past, starting with Warren Beatty's DICK TRACY [1990].  

Subscribe to the show in iTunes.

Episode breakdown:
0:00 - 2:20: Intro banter
2:21 - 3:16: Dick Tracy trailer
3:17 - 57:08: Main discussion: Dick Tracy
57:09 - 1:00:55: Closing remarks

But wait, there's more!  This week we've recorded a special bonus episode, an occasional segment that we'll call "Between Panels."  In It, David tries to crush Dru's spirit after seeing (and loving) SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK, and then they spitball some ideas about how to get new comics readers on board with DC and Marvel (hint: not by rebooting 52 titles and selling them at $3.99 a pop).  Dru also shares some films of note from Montreal's annual Fantasia International Film Festival.

NOTE: If you haven't listened to the show before, this might not be the place to start.  Try one of the regular episodes, preferably of a film you've seen (i.e. probably not STEEL).

You can get "Between Panels" in the same iTunes feed as the regular episodes!
