Forgotten Cinema: The Phantom

The Mike's are going to "Slam Evil" in this one, bro!

...Seriously, that's this film's tagline.

It's the 1996 film, The Phantom on this episode of Forgotten Cinema Season 5: Audience Choice! Brought to us by John Amenta, one of our good friends over at the Pint O' Comics podcast.

Mike Butler and Mike Field take a look at this adventure film starring Billy Zane, Treat Williams, and Catherine Zeta Jones in one of her first big roles. Our hosts will discuss the character of the Phantom himself, the use of overacting in the film to set a tone, the sets, and of course, Billy Zane's skin tight purple crime fighting getup!

Thanks again to John Amenta and click to find out more about Pint O' Comics, to listen to their podcast as well. Perhaps seek out those episodes about Midnight Madness and Episode I. We happen to know the guys who guest starred on those episodes. (We're going to be straight with you, it was us. But definitely check out their podcast.)

So grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits at the front and rear of the auditorium, and settle down for Forgotten Cinema.
