Gobbledygeek episode 257, “Five Bucks to See the Dancing Freak,” is available for listening or download right here, and on iTunes here.

Why talk about a mega-blockbuster sure to be seen by every casual movie fan on the planet when you can talk about a Sam Raimi deep cut from a quarter-century ago? In belated celebration of the 25th anniversary of Raimi’s first superhero movie, 1990’s Liam Neeson-starring Darkman, Paul and AJ take the fucking elephant, getting down and dirty with the film’s idiosyncrasies. Including the question: what draws AJ to those idiosyncrasies, and what keeps Paul at arm’s length? The boys discuss auteurism, artifice, a superhero’s moral code, and much more.

Next: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, Kenn Edwards and Andrew Allen join us to discuss the Star Wars saga.
