Broken Projector: Kids Who Kick Ass

Standing Up

Awkward as a nerdy kid at summer camp, we’ve built an episode focused on young people who are much, much stronger than they appear (and only some of them wear spandex). First up, an Interrogation Reviewification treatment of Kick-Ass 2 with Neil Miller. He’s seen it and lived to the wipe bodily fluids off his shirt in the theater parking lot.

Then we’ve got a candid interview with D.J. Caruso, whose family-friendly film Standing Up sees two young kids finding friendship in the midst of intensely cruel, mosquito-covered bullying.

From Hit-Girl crushing skulls to coming-of-age on the lam, it’s bound to be an adolescent-minded show.

You should follow Neil (@rejects), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more fun stuff on a daily basis.

And, as always, please send us your feedback.
