Destinies Reviews Madame Web


From Howard Margolin: 

Last week, Madame Web opened in theaters, taking us once more into the Sony Spider-verse.

This week, the Destinies Film Review Team crawls in for a live discussion of Madame Web, beginning at 11:15 PM.

Does the film accurately reflect even an approximation of the numerous Spider-Man-adjacent characters and situations?

Is Dakota Johnson's Cassie Webb likeable, and will anyone care about her character's arc?

Who are the three teenage girls destined to become Spider-Women in their own right, and how do they fit into the story?

Is Tahir Rahim's Ezekial Sims a compelling villain, or another one-dimensional whiner?

And, what is this movie worth on the newly-expanded Destinies zero to $9.50 rating scale?

Find out on Friday, February 23rd, at 11:15 PM, when hosts Howard Margolin, Audrey Dettmering, Dave Campfield, Timothy Gillespie, and Natalie Voltz review Madame Web on

Destinies-The Voice of Science Fiction.

Ménage à Trois avec Sweep the Leg Johnny

Ménage à Trois sits down for a discussion with Chicago hardcore legends Sweep the Leg Johnny, their first since disbanding in 2002, all about drunk Italian men, film references, and the greatest case of plagiarism in music history. We will also incidentally touch on the depths of their career, from their humble start to their triumphant end.

Catch the interview live at midnight on January 27th, and on Spotify or our site the coming week.
