This week, it’s a wild ride as we look at the compelling biopic “Wildcat” and the insane Bruceploitation oddity, “Bruce Lee vs. Superman”.

This week, in our new movie spotlight, we look at one author’s struggle to complete her novel.

Flannery O’Connor wrote several stories that used elements of her upbringing. Starring Maya Hawke and directed and written by Ethan Hawke (co-written by Shelby Gaines), Wildcat examines how her life and works were connected.

Maya’s performance as the real-life author is fantastic and includes some real standout moments. That being said, there were some surprising missteps.

Wildcat is in theaters now and not yet streaming.

Watch the trailer.

Then, Bruceploitation Month on the show continues with one of the wilder entries. 

Since the birth of the internet, people have asked serious questions. Who would win in a fight between Goku and the Hulk? Could Lancelot best Luke Skywalker in a duel? A/S/L? One of the things young internet denizens argued about was who would win in a one-on-one battle between Bruce Lee and Superman.

As it turns out, a 1975 movie dared to give this match to audiences. It is certainly a risk. Both are incredibly popular, meaning it would be impossible not to anger some viewers. Plus, how could any film possibly live up to what would certainly be sky-high expectations? Worse yet, what if it is a bait and switch?

Bruce Lee vs. Superman (or Bruce Lee Against Superman or Superdragon vs. Superman) is far from a perfect movie — or even a good one — but it presents the fight it advertises.

However, there is more than just the slugfest between the two iconic heroes. Green Hornet, Kato, and possibly the wildest rickshaw scene in cinema history all get involved. It may not be the best Bruceploitation movie, but it is hard to believe there is anything zanier

You can watch Bruce Lee vs Superman (under the title Bruce Lee Against Superman) on Tubi.
