We need heroes again, now more than ever. With Craig, and hopefully special guests, we want to explore what it means to be a hero. We want to watch, examine, and love these great pieces of hero cinema – STAR WARS, RAIDERS, comic book movies, and these great matinee films of the past, present, and future – and take from them the lessons that we can use to navigate this world. We love our heroes not just for their strength and courage, but for their foibles and mistakes, because that’s when we truly understand that these heroes are just like us. These movies aren’t just casual escapism; they are important. We carry them with us everywhere we go. To that end, Matinee Heroes will explore hero cinema and use these movies to make a better world.
– Alan & Craig
