In our second episode, two of our podcasters were missing in action so we sat down to discuss Veronica Mars and the ways in which Veronica Mars reinvented Film Noir. Yes, there are character spoilers but we promise that the mystery Veronica Mars solves is not discussed or given away. In the second half we discussed the new Captain America film and the ways that Captain America has reinvented the the espionage and paranoia films of the 60s and 70s on a grand scale. This is followed by further discussion on The Raid 2 reinventing the fight/action film and a few references to Ozploitation films.
