THE PHANTOM - Pure 90's Nostalgia
Are you ready to slam evil!
Jake + Mitch dip into the well of sweet 90’s nostalgia in re-visiting Billy Zane and his purple jumpsuit. THE PHANTOM was not quite a phenomenon, but in the brief trend of resurrecting art-deco comic strips of yesteryear, it was definitely a contributor. Of course, with a hamburgler mask and a mystical ring there’s only so much substance one can hope for.
Nevertheless, the guys ask the tough questions:
Treat Williams: Best comic book movie mustache ever?
Better airplane stunts: Billy Zane or Tom Cruise?
Which is better: Judge Dredd or The Phantom?
They also go down a rabbit hole of discussing the merits of Superman and Lex Luthor’s arch-rival status. It makes sense…mostly.
If you find yourself feeling adventurous, dive back into the South African jungle and relish in the awesomely campiness that is THE PHANTOM.
Be sure to rate, review, and give a listen!
