TVAMD4:  Heroes & Villains Sean and Johnny talk about the state of heroes and villains in movies today, weighing the positive message of Avatar against the disturbing trends in modern thinking that are embracing remakes of Last House on the Left and I Spit on Your Grave. Indiana Jones and John McClane are helping regular guys discover their inner Batman while bad guys like Freddy and Jason give us a taste of pure evil. So what happens when the line gets blurred? Have we lost our knack for myth building? Will the characters of Avatar endure as long as Sherlock Holmes? Or have we lost the ability to create something new that will stand the test of time? This blurb makes us sound a lot more profound than we really. We're pretty much just talking about movies.
