NOW STREAMING EP. 68 – ‘ANTBOY’ IS DENMARK’S MARVEL MISTAKE

This week on the Now Streaming podcast, I’m joined by three returning guests. I brought on filmmaker Ben Rock, Star of Killing Time, Graham Denman, and Fangoria’s Camilla Jackson! We all had the pleasure(?) of watching the foreign super hero kid classic Antboy: Revenge of the Red Fury… the reason we were told to watch this sequel instead of the original was an origin story. It was our job to see if we could find enjoyment in a film not knowing how a hero got their powers, spoiler alert, it wasn’t very good. But I will say this, I was glad that we were all able to keep up and didn’t need an origin to enjoy… using the word enjoy lightly.

Little did I know, Graham had a surprise for Ben that he shared on the podcast that was 5 years in the making. We had a lot of fun and I’m excited to watch the show for next week, mainly because it’s a critically acclaimed movie.. not a god damn piece of shit.
