Today, Matt Wilson and I are launching our newest project, Movie Fighters! If you read the movie reviews that we used to do at ComicsAlliance, then you’re already familiar with the format: We pick a (usually terrible) movie and go in-depth with it so you don’t have to. Movie Fighters is the same style, but instead of breaking it up into a two-part review, we’re doing it as an all-new audio experience. It’s like it’s being broadcast directly to your iPod or other MP3 playing device! We call it… a podcast.
The first episode is up now, where we go head-to-head with 1994’s genuinely terrible Double Dragon, and you can get the whole thing for just one dollar. And if you’ve already donated to the War Rocket Ajax fundraiser, then there’s a download code for the first episode waiting for you in your inbox. We’ll be doing the show biweekly, starting with finishing our promised round-up of fighting movie games, going through Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, Tekken, King of Fighters, and then on to our next listener-voted series. Will we finally be forced to sit through all five (six? seven?) Resident Evil movies? Who knows?
If you still have doubts, you can listen to the first track (our introduction, where we talk about skating rinks and beat-em-ups) for free, so please give it a shot and let us know what you think!
