EPISODE 17 – IS STAR WARS THE MOST INFLUENTIAL MOVIE?

vaderThis week in the Smith Tower the Smith men discuss what movies have led us to this golden age of superhero cinema.

Every summer brings rich pickings, so much so that it seems Blockbuster season is now stretching out across the year, but would any of this have happened without Batman Begins? Or did X-Men need to come first to open the door?

And would we have had X-Men without The Matrix first lighting a fire under heroic cinema? And let’s not forget how big a negative impact Batman & Robin had, a film actually bad enough to kill the Bat franchise for a while.

And would any of this have happened without Star Wars?

Confused? We certainly are.

Plus, we catch up on the latest Bromley Batman and Spiderman news!
