THE IRON GIANT: Brad Bird, The Cold War, and FEELINGS – That Thing You Like #97


SUPERMAN. Thanks to Netflix, Brian and Chris have finally seen THE IRON GIANT, Brad Bird’s 1999, cult-favourite animated movie! It’s great. There may still be tears in our eyes.

We talk about animation nostalgia, classic films of our youth, Don Bluth, The Iron Giant vs Pixar movies, and more! Also, we spend a long time discussing the state of animation, and wonder why a full-length version of something as beautiful as PAPERMAN doesn’t exist. Maybe it’s coming? We hope it’s coming.

Plus, our critical north star FILM CRIT HULK has an idea about character and emotional arcs, and we think it might apply here. So we talk about that too.

Hope you enjoyed the show, and please, let us know what you think! And tell a friend about the pod! These things make us feel all kinds of loved. Plus, maybe throw us a review on iTunes or Stitcher or wherever? If you want to? But only if you want to. Thanks friends!
