The guys don their capes and masks once again and head to the cinema for Zack Snyder's behemoth superhero flick Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. It's been a polarizing film since its inception, and that certainly didn't change when the film was finally released. They discuss just what the DC Cinematic Universe has in store with this "dawn," what exactly these super hero films must do to be successful, the nature of subjectivity in art and whether this could even be classified as art. Just kidding! They talk about flying and explosions.

Episode 12: The Matrix (1999)

In the Bit Players’ second group pick episode, the guys take on the Wachowskis’ sci-fi classic The Matrix, discussing not only the impact the film had upon release, but its continued legacy in the film canon. They break down philosophical import in the science fiction genre and the way that the Wachowskis were able to perfectly blend heady questions with flat-out classic action sequences. In addition to the film discussion, the guys play a game of Who Said It with Morpheus and history’s greatest philosophers, plan their own sequel that should have been, and give Anders his time to shine praising the newest installment in the Arkham video game franchise.
