Episode 64 – Mystery Men vs. Kick-Ass

We'll Forkgive you, if you forkgot about these cult comic book movies. Mystery Men was released before the Marvel juggernaut took hold, and Kick-Ass has been eclipsed by some even more ultra violent Mark Millar adaptations. Carmelita joins us to compare and contrast these dilettante defenders of justice. You can…
