"They're hereeeeee." Pop Kannon is back for another fan's choice episode from the Collective, and we decided to get a little spooky with this one! "Poltergeist" was released in 1982 and has since become one of the most beloved horror films of all time. Join Jordan, Robert, Sarah and Joe as we reflect on their childhood memories of the film and how we feel about it now. We discuss the influence Steven Spielberg had on the filmmaking, we analyze the anti-materialistic subtext, the dynamic family unit led by Craig T. Nelson and JoBeth Williams, the effects and whether or not they hold up by today's standards, the legacy the film has left behind, and MORE. We are also available via VIDEO on YouTube!

"So what? No fuckin' ziti now?" With the release of the prequel film "The Many Saints of Newark: A Sopranos Story" upon us, we decided now would be the best time to go all the way back to the year 1999 and continue our S1E1 series with THE SOPRANOS.  Join us as Robert, Jordan and Sarah discuss the massively successful HBO original series written and directed by creator David Chase. Jordan and Sarah give their first impressions of seeing the show, while Robert reflects on his first exposure to it and how his opinion has evolved after seeing the show through twice.  We break down the character of Tony Soprano and talk about the way the show treats anxiety and depression. We discuss the decision to try to ground the show in reality by highlighting the relationships between Tony and his immediate family, praise some of the filmmaking techniques used, and if the pilot episode was enough to sell us on the series!  All this AND MORE in another special S1E1 episode of Pop Kannon!

"I know you don't like to talk about your life, but a guy with a freaking MACHETE FOR AN ARM just chopped our bus in half!" The Summer of Marvel continues!

We also try to answer whether or not this film is "Top 10" material in the MCU, how the film's genre and style is more than a "comic book movie", the connection to Iron Fist and the problematic history of the character within Marvel Comics.
