Media Montage Podcast 68: Noah Film and Comic (2014)

You got your Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi in my Biblical Epic! 
No, you got your Biblical Epic in my Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi!
 
This week Bruce and Larry visit Noah, the 2014 film by Darren Aronofsky, starring Russell Crowe, Anthony Perkins, Jennifer Connelly and Ray Winstone. We also look at the graphic novel that was concurrently created from the original screenplay. The wickedness of man, miracles and fallen angels inhabit the strange antediluvian earth of the story. We explore the sci-fi nature of the story, the bits and pieces added for dramatic effect, and the symbolism present throughout the tale.

Media Montage Podcast 67: Nexus - God Con

 
Nexus is an independent comic book from the minds of Mike Baron and Steve ‘The Dude’ Rude. It stars Horatio Hellpop as the great and powerful Nexus, a man tasked by the alien Merk with hunting down and executing the galaxy’s worst mass murderers from his base on the planet Ylum. 
 
In Nexus: God Con, Horatio and his lovely partner Sundra Peale deal with the arrival of all the One True Gods in the Universe to their cozy little world. 
 
Bruce and Larry take a look at this Nexus miniseries, its approach to controversial religious topics including Horatio’s crisis of faith, and confrontations with his (and the reader’s) conceptions of God. Religious stories can be a touchy subject, especially when some of your main characters are Jesus, Mohammed, the Buddha, Yahweh, and the embodiment of Evil. 
 
Are our hosts blasphemers, infidels, or true believers? …And does Bruce really know anything about Buddhism? Find out in Episode 67 of the Media Montage Podcast!
