Matinee Heroes is a podcast dedicated to exploring hero cinema – from adventurers, heroes, and superheroes; from Jedi to buddy cops; from the Wild West, to the distant past, to futures both hopeful and dystopian, from ancient lands to the deepest reaches of outer space. In a time when we need heroes more than ever, Alan and Craig will try to understand just what makes our cinematic heroes tick, and how we can use that heroism in our everyday life.
Alan Cerny has written for such movie websites as Ain’t It Cool News, CHUD, Birth Movies Death, and is currently reviewing films at ComingSoon.Net. He’s been movie crazy since he was 5 years old and a family outing to see JAWS changed his life. Married, with a daughter, and a very finicky cat.
