With Panda holding the microphone, J.R. Blackwell and I discuss the finer points of fantasy entertainment as exemplified by three films we watched recently:
Iron Man: ironmanmovie.marvel.com
Speed Racer: speedracerthemovie.warnerbros.com
Also discussed is the level of violence appropriate for children, why life-and-death situations get me upset and the glorification of materialism in modern, over-the-top summer cinema.
And, yes, all three of us were in bed. But Panda’s always there.
The Voice of Free Planet X theme was written and performed by Russell Collins of www.clockworkaudio.net.

I enjoyed all the films you and JR discussed in this episode. On Ironman: The 10% scene was also one of my favourites. On Hogfather: They did another Discworld book this year for Easter - The Colour of Magic. It is actually the First two books done as a two part miniseries like Hogfather was...But if you have read the books you would understand why.
