Sound on Sight Radio #200 Anniversary Show: Kick-Ass

- Advertisement -

For the past few years, Mark Millar has been writing some of the most exciting, mature, and original film storyboards in recent memory. The fact that he has the nerve to call his work ‘comic books’ is only mildly insulting to those of us who don’t want to see the medium transform into log lines written to Michael Bay’s reading level. Tonight, on our 200th show, Sound on Sight takes a look at the latest adaptation of his work, the hard R superhero comedy Kick-Ass, and we’ll also review the Canadian equivalent Defendor, which stars Woody Harrelson as a developmentally challenged crime fighter.

    I think I would have mentioned a few negative points in the review of Kick-Ass but I could sense that my three co hosts were focused heavily on the negatives as appose to the positives so I guess I sort of wanted to balance it out.

  2. Steve says

    Great show again. You should have reviewed other superhero films like Blankman and The Specials. I never heard of Defendor but it sounds interesting so I will look out for it.

  3. Dave Valentine says

    Congratulations on your ‘200th’ show.

    Kick-Ass was released here in the UK a couple of weeks ago and it’s been a real talking point since, recieving mostly positive reviews and high praise (except for the Daily Mail’s one star review, declaring that it promotes child abuse). However, I disagree with Ricky’s enthusiasm for the film, as I didn’t think it was anything particuarly special. Some nice visuals and a couple of good jokes aside, there was nothing that would make me ever wish to re-visit the film.

    Defendor sounds a more satisfying and appealing film to me – I’ll see if I can get the DVD.

    Many thanks for all the shows, and I look forward to the next 200!
