For our last superhero film of Marathon May, we take things in a whole different direction and watch Sky High, a teen film that feels like a Disney Channel Original Movie but was actually released in theaters with moderate success. Katie and Wesleigh describe their dream super powers and then discuss pressures put on high schoolers, how much this parallels Harry Potter, orphanages for baby villains, and why Katie still thinks Kurt Russell is in Dirty Dancing.
