Dominic and Keith look at movies that feel different watching post-pandemic — namely, The Dark Knight Rises and Watchmen.
First, they Disney’s reshuffled movie schedule and whether people will still even want to see Black Widow in November, either because of the virus or because of the election. Then, they note how Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises feels both prescient and outdated in 2020, plus how Watchmen presaged an obsession with masks and how they’re perceived among the general population. Later, they mourn the loss of the movie theater experience after a thread of Avengers: Endgame from opening night went viral and share what’s #NerdPoppin this week: for Dom, it’s eating jajangmyeon and watching Parasite for Black Day. For Keith, it’s the new YA graphic novel Gotham High and its Asian American Batman.
