Blade (1998)
Heroes Through the Decades ass kicks into the '90s, with Wesley Snipes' cool, charismatic badass vampire hunter - Blade! In 1971 the Comics Code Authority updated its code criteria, which had been in place since 1954, relaxing the rules on the depiction of horror in comics. For the first time, vampires were allowed in comic books. Marvel's first pseudo-vampire character, Morbius the Living Vampire sowed the seeds for the second; Blade the Vampire Hunter. Wesley Snipes was originally interested in making an adaptation of Black Panther before his attention was piqued with a movie adaptation of Blade. In many ways, it feels like the character of Blade was made for Wesley Snipes, and he not only decided to star in Blade, but also produce it through his production company Amen Ra Films. Snipes was literally and figuratively invested in this production. Snipes, along with writer David S. Goyer (who fought against studios trying to whitewash the character) and director Stephen Norrington, formed a trifecta of creative passion for Blade; for his story, the homage paid to Hong Kong action films and to make this story as bloody, gory and fun as it could be. Insert very '90s techno rave music here. IT'S BLOOD RAVE TIME! I would love to hear your thoughts on Blade (1998) ! GET IN TOUCH....

Batman (1989)
Heroes Through the Decades kapows into the 1980s, and is there any superhero as ubiquitous as Batman? Found in comics, in movies and TV, on lunchboxes, as toys and as one of the best-known silhouettes in the world, Batman's omnipresence in pop culture might be commonplace today, but while Batman was a hugely popular comic book series (and '60s TV show!), the Caped Crusader as we know him shifted into popular culture in 1989, not only with the release of this movie, but with BATMANIA! Batman was a movie built from the ground up for merchandising potential, and that famous black and yellow Batman logo adorned everything in the run-up to the release of this movie, including clothing, trading cards and bags. Teaser posters were stolen from bus stops and subway stations. Pre-production of Batman was long and arduous, with fan expectations at fever pitch, and when Michael Keaton's name was announced, 50,000 letters of complaint were sent to the production. This episode also pays its respect to the late Bill Finger, a man who was never originally credited for co-creating Batman, and it took a novelist and documentary filmmaker's persistence to get Finger the posthumous credit he deserved.

Superman (1978)
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Verbal Diorama's Heroes Through the Decades miniseries, continuing into the 1970s! Whether you know him as Clark Kent, Kal-El, the Man of Steel, the Man of Tomorrow, or just as Superman, that famous tights-and-cape combo emblazoned with the S on his chest is a symbol of a lot of things: Hope, courage, freedom, love... truth, justice and the American way, and a movie with a rich history in comic books, that was made in part because of Zorro, and in another due to 1966's Batman. The late Christopher Reeve is perfectly cast as both Clark Kent and Superman, in a landmark superhero film by the late Richard Donner. Donner's personality clashes with father-and-son producers Alexander and Ilya Salkind led to him being fired from Superman II, despite him completing reportedly 75% of the sequel....

Jason and the Argonauts (1963)
In the first episode of my Heroes Through the Decades miniseries, I'm starting in the sixties, and the crowing jewel of Ray Harryhausen's stellar career, with his trademark glorious stop-motion creature set pieces, in a movie I grew up watching - Jason and the Argonauts. Jason may be the hero on-screen, but Harryhausen is the hero behind it. From its basis in the Greek myth of Jason and the Golden Fleece, to Ray Harryhausen's early career and the influence he had seeing King Kong (1933) to becoming the protégé of Willis H. O'Brien (the animator of King Kong), Harryhausen would end up surpassing his mentor in every way and became a one-man behemoth of Hollywood visual effects, influencing Peter Jackson, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, amongst others. This episode was so much fun to put together and will definitely not be my last foray into the work of Harryhausen, a man who irrevocably changed Hollywood and defined the modern blockbuster in more ways than one.

A Scanner Darkly
What does a scanner see? Into the head? Down into the heart? Does it see into me? Into us? Clearly or darkly? I hope it sees clearly because I can't any longer see into myself. I see only murk. I hope for everyone's sake the scanners do better, because if the scanner sees only darkly the way I do, then I'm cursed and cursed again. Welcome to the 150th episode of Verbal Diorama, and an episode on two things this podcast is renowned for: animation and Keanu Reeves! Richard Linklater's 2006 movie A Scanner Darkly is based on the semi-autobiographical novel by Philip K. Dick, in turn based on his amphetamine addiction in the early '70s, and the resulting psychosis he experienced. Making A Scanner Darkly using interpolated rotoscoped animation was the ideal choice for a dystopian, drug-fuelled movie that's so disassociated with reality. The live-action portion of the movie was filmed without incident, but when it came to the animation, time and budgetary concerns would cause the original senior animation team to walk out six months into production. They wanted more time and more money to finish the project. Rather than grant them their wish, the producers would fire and replace them... I would love to hear your thoughts on A Scanner Darkly !

DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story
Warning. This episode contains jokes about balls. Lots of balls. Sports movies are ten-a-penny in Hollywood, sports comedies even more so. There's nothing funnier than a ball being flung in the vicinity of a person's face or private parts, let's be honest. But DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story is more influential than you might think. Not only is it a sharp satire of the fitness and health industry, but it also unofficially marked the creation of a real American professional dodgeball league, as well as reintroducing a sport seen as vicious and cruel to the general population, by some deft physical comedy showing the sport as indeed vicious and cruel, but also hilariously funny. Rawson Marshall Thurber's directorial debut is self-assured, witty and fun, and has the benefit of the association of Ben Stiller's production company. Despite his busy 2004 schedule, Stiller was very hands on, and White Goodman remains one of his funniest, and most quotable, characters. DodgeBall goes balls deep into an obscure, relatively unknown sport, so I do the same with this movie. Grab life by the balls and enjoy!

The Crow
The Crow is so bittersweet to talk about. It’s a dark, but stunning visual movie that looks unlike anything else. It’s hard to avoid the idea that perhaps Brandon Lee’s untimely death contributed to the popularity of the movie, and who knows if the movie would have been as big without the shadow of his death looming over it, but it’s hard to deny the screen presence of Brandon Lee, and that this could have easily been his breakthrough to mainstream Hollywood. As a tribute to Brandon Lee, it stands unparalleled. He’ll always been remembered for this one great movie, and it was incredibly brave of his family to allow this to be completed and released, let alone the technical marvel it was to complete and release in his memory.  Brandon Lee literally gave his life for this movie, and I’d be perfectly happy for it to never be remade or rebooted. Undoubtedly it will be one day, but even without the controversy behind the scenes, it would be very hard to match the tone and feel of The Crow. The Crow remains compelling, foreboding and eerie, exactly as it's intended to. As far as legacies go, Brandon Lee may have one of the shortest, but he also has one of the greatest. I would love to hear your thoughts on The Crow ! GET IN TOUCH....

Starship Troopers

We must meet this threat with our courage, our valour, indeed with our very lives to ensure that human civilization, not insect, dominates this galaxy now and always! All right, let's sum up. This year we explored the failure of democracy. How our social scientists brought our world to the brink of chaos. We talked about the veterans, how they took control and established the stability that has lasted for generations since. You know these facts, but have I taught you anything of value this year? The only good bug is a dead bug. Every day, Federal scientists are looking for new ways to kill bugs. Shoot a nuke down a bug hole, you got a lot of dead bugs. This is for all you new people. I have only one rule. Everybody fights, no one quits. If you don't do your job, I'll kill you myself. Welcome to the Roughnecks! I expect the best and I give the best. Here's the beer. Here's the entertainment. Now have fun. That's an order. They're doing their part. Are you? Join the Mobile Infantry and save the world. Service guarantees citizenship.

Deep Blue Sea
For 145 episodes, Jess was an almost constant feature on Verbal Diorama, whether that was by making noises in the background, featuring on episodes as herself, or just by being in the next room during recording. Jess passed away after a brief period of illness on 15th March 2022, aged almost 18. She was a guiding light, my constant companion, and brought joy to literally everyone who knew her. She was my best friend. So in tribute to, and in celebration of, her long and extremely loving life and her supersized brain (not achieved by any gene therapies), an episode featuring some really big fish, and a movie that borrows liberally from Jaws, Jurassic Park and Alien, mixing high-end production values with R-rated pulpy, lowbrow thrills, and very little actual science. Interestingly, https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/759701/Alzheimers-Parkinsons-disease-shark-lundbeck (scientists in real life have been using shark antibodies to help find treatments for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s), so maybe Deep Blue Sea is actually slightly prophetic?

My Best Friend's Wedding
My Best Friend's Wedding - a romcom without the rom - was remarkably different in its original script. There were only two lines of dialogue for George (then named Digger), Kimmy just magically forgave all of Julianne's transgressions and not only that, but Julianne would be rewarded at the end of the movie by, not getting her man, but getting a man - a handsome stranger at the wedding played by John Corbett. It's not often that a test audience screening will save a movie, but it's safe to say a test screening saved My Best Friend's Wedding, by taking away Julianne's "happily ever after" without the movie ending on a downer, and giving Kimmy some real fight and agency. These changes would turn My Best Friend's Wedding into a sleeper hit of a movie that charmed audiences and critics in 1997, and still does to this day. Is Verbal Diorama crème brûlée or jell-o, though? I would love to hear your thoughts on My Best Friend's Wedding ! GET IN TOUCH....

Toy Story 4
The official line from Disney and Pixar post the release of Toy Story 3 in 2010 was "we're not planning Toy Story 4" The honest truth was, they were, and they had been for several months too. Originally not planned as a continuation of the story, Toy Story 4 was intended to be a romantic comedy focused on Woody and Bo Peep, but all that soon changed..... Can I finish Animation Season with a bang? YES I CAN-ADA! Animation Season 2022 is now over, but it will be back next year! I would love to hear your thoughts on Toy Story 4 ! GET IN TOUCH....

Toy Story 3
Animation Season 2022 finally reaches Pixar! After the huge success of Toy Story in 1995 and Toy Story 2 in 1999, a sequel seemed inevitable, but it'd take eleven years and a lot of behind the scenes issues. With the relationship between Disney and Pixar soured, Disney exercised its right to make sequels without Pixar's involvement. Disney decided to forge ahead with Toy Story 3 through their own newly-created CG animation studio - Circle Seven Animation. What happened next is hardly child's play, but in 2006 a deal was made for Disney to buy Pixar, ensuring the Toy Story threequel was in good hands once more. This was always going to be the end.... until it wasn't. The stop-motion remake of Toy Story 3 is available at https://youtu.be/YfduDq5gLnE (https://youtu.be/YfduDq5gLnE) I would love to hear your thoughts on Toy Story 3 ! GET IN TOUCH....

The Lion King (1994)Beauty and the Beast (1991)The Little Mermaid (1989)Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is such an underrated gem. I know I say that a lot, but it is. Adults fall into the trap of seeing a bright, colourful, funny animated movie, and assuming it's "just for children" (as we know from the Verbal Diorama mantra, animation is not just for children!), but also because it is a bright, colourful, funny animated movie that just happens to masquerade as something way more deep and meaningful than its looks or title might suggest. There's a serious undercurrent of childhood bullying and the insecurities that stem from that, workplace sexism, waste culture, greed and excess, the fast food epidemic and obesity as well as the environmental crisis we all find ourselves in. Plus, we can all relate to wanting to make that one person proud, who doesn't seem to truly understand us. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, in their writing & directorial debut, gave us something really special to chew on here. It's yummy, and would foreshadow their greatness to come...

Anastasia
Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov, the fourth child and fourth consecutive daughter for Russian Tsar Nicholas II and his wife Tsarina Alexandra, was a disappointment at the time of her birth. She wasn't the long-awaited son and heir for the couple. He would come along three years later. And, well, the rest of the tragic story of the Russian imperial family is fairly well-known. But Anastasia has led a remarkable life post her premature assassination by the Bolsheviks in 1918. Rumours of her survival and escape to Europe swirled in the post-war years, culminating in a multitude of imposters claiming to be her. The true story of Anastasia and the Romanov family is so tragic, it's hard to believe anyone would want to make a movie out of it, let alone an animated movie, and a musical at that. Don Bluth and Gary Goldman's 1997 animation can hardly be accused of historical accuracy, but as the rival for Disney's princess-based movies of their Renaissance, Anastasia more than holds her own, with beautiful animation, an all-star voice cast, and a wonderful score and songs. Ironically, despite the rivalry between Fox and Disney at the time, Disney now own Fox, and they also now own Anastasia. That doesn't make her a Disney Princess, but it makes her close to being one. I would love to hear your thoughts on Anastasia! GET IN TOUCH....

Grave of the Fireflies (Hotaru no Haka)The Prince of Egypt
Meant to be the first animated DreamWorks movie (it wasn't, thanks to DreamWorks bringing the release date of Antz forward to annoy Disney), The Prince of Egypt takes a well-known Biblical tale (the basis of three of the biggest religions in the world; Christianity, Islam and Judaism) and grounds it in humanity and empathy, by making it a simple tale of two brothers; one who's destined to be Pharaoh, and the other a former Hebrew slave. A sprinkling of artistic licence gives the story of Exodus way more depth and meaning, to a story that already has plenty. This is a movie that deals with slavery, infanticide, plagues and the wrath of God, and yet it's still suitable for the whole family. The Prince of Egypt never sugar coats its serious undertones, either. What it does do, is tell a story that is the cornerstone of faith for millions of people worldwide, in a 2D hand drawn animated format that is accessible, beautiful and complemented by CG. That's the power of animation, right there. https://dailyhistory.org/Is_the_Film_the_Prince_of_Egypt_Historically_Accurate (The Historical Accuracy of The Prince of Egypt - dailyhistory.org) I would love to hear your thoughts on The Prince of Egypt!

Corpse Bride
Corpse Bride, a co-production between Tim Burton Productions and Laika, is a genuinely heart-warming, beautifully made gothic fairy tale based on Jewish-Russian folk tales. It has a great cast and stunning visuals, but honestly despite seeing it several years ago, I could not remember a thing about it. Watching it again for this podcast was like watching it for the very first time. And therein lies the problem with Corpse Bride; it's overshadowing by the other Tim Burton heart-warming , beautifully made gothic fairy tale: The Nightmare Before Christmas. They even share a Danny Elfman soundtrack! But, Corpse Bride deserves recognition. It's revolutionary puppet work and digital filming techniques make it stand out. It's a classic love triangle where true love never dies, and ultimately if you love someone you should set them free. While The Nightmare Before Christmas will come to this podcast eventually, Corpse Bride comes first because it deserves more love than it gets. I would love to hear your thoughts on Corpse Bride!
