Wham Bam Pow

This week, we stretch the definitions of action and sci-fi a bit to examine Birdman, the genre-busting film starring Michael Keaton as a washed up superhero actor. Plus, what makes a good Sarah Connor?

Cameron's album is available RIGHT NOW on iTunes -- be sure to pick it up!

Next week, we will be watching The Rocketeer, which is currently available on Netflix Watch Instant.

Follow us on Twitter! Cameron is @cameronesposito, Rhea is @rheabutcher and Ricky is @rickycarmona. Discuss the show using the hashtag #WhamBamPow!

Don't forget about our Facebook and Tumblr pages. You can also email us at whambampow@maximumfun.org
