  • Flame On :: Episode 254 :: Wonder Woman 1984 Review

    Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.

    If you had the chance to make a wish and have your deepest desire come true, would you do it? What if the cost was too high? Could you live with the regret of having the thing you wanted most at your fingertips at the expense of others? These questions and more are examined in Wonder Woman 1984 and in this episode of Flame ON!

    It’s a new year, but it’s the same lovable cast of Flame ON! ready to tackle the Christmas miracle that Warner Bros. and DC Films gave us all in the simultaneous in (select) theater and in home release of the hotly anticipated Wonder Woman 1984! Wonder Woman 1984 sees director Patty Jenkins reunite with star Gal Gadot for a second go around as the demigod Diana Prince AKA Wonder Woman. We are taken to the bright and colorful 1980’s for a film full of promise and amazement, but does the film live up to the hype of its predecessor as one of the best modern comic book films or does it suffer from Sequel Syndrome and studio interference? Find out what the boys think, and more, in this episode!

    Sit back and get ready to FLAME ON! (more…)

    It’s November, everyone and while it may have felt like 14 years have passed since March 2020, we’re here to let you know that it has in fact been 84 years since March! OK, well maybe it hasn’t been that long, but there has been so much going on and we’re ready to share some pop culture with you. Before we dive into their favorites for this month, we discuss the election and congratulate President-Elect Biden and chat about the closure of the iconic Parliament House (along with Hamburger Mary’s Chicago and the Atlanta Eagle). From there, we discuss The Queen’s Gambit from Netflix (while making some really bad Gambit/Rogue/X-Men jokes), Owl House on Disney+, and the second season of The Mandalorian. We also dive into how the internet has seemingly turned on Baby Yoda in the wake of Egg-Gate!
