It's one of the best Marvel experiences we've ever had.
It's amazing. There, we said it. They learned from past mistakes, righted wrongs, and gave us all the well-executed fan service we so desperately deserved. Truly, Marvel did right by us this time, and now we (im)patiently wait for whatever the future may hold in the MCU.
I mean, maybe do more than Year 1? Maybe? Just a thought.
Did you even know this was released? We're gonna guess that's a no, since we barely found it out about it. Is it better than the game? Not really. Is it a bad flick? Not entirely. But we'll cover all of that, so maybe you don't have to go hunt this down in the local Redbox.
Is it perfect? No. Is it as bad as people said? Definitely not.
Marvel finally dove head first into the weird IPs of Jack Kirby with Eternals! This movie has a lot going for it, from beautiful visuals to excellent acting, but stumbles over it's third act and suffers from tonal confusion. We get into the thick of it in this week's REEL EXTRA.
He definitely looked the part, that's for sure.
A new Sony/Marvel movie collab, we finally get to see Carnage on the big screen! Even with all the excitement surrounding the film (including the biggest US opening of the pandemic), the movie is... fine? We have some qualms and some praise, but as Linkin Park so eloquently states, "in the end, nothing really matters..." (Spoiler Alert!)
You haven't seen this movie yet? Quit listening to us and go!
Marvel is not messing around with Phase 4! We hit our local theater to see the new box office smash, Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and it did NOT disappoint! The fight choreography is incredible, the storytelling is excellent, the acting is exceptional, and the magic is, well, magical. Let's get into it (and be advised, we do give a spoiler warning)!
They explode limbs... and our hearts.
We're back, baby! Welcome to season two of your favorite (we assume) comic and entertainment podcast! This week we took our keisters to the theater for the release of The Suicide Squad, and hot damn, was it worth it. A great mix of gruesome violence and heart-warming character development, suddenly you're grossed out and aww-ing at the cuteness all at the same time. It's a lot, but we cover it all!
Natasha goes out with a bang, not a whimper.
It's the movie we were promised a decade ago, and hot damn it actually lives up to our expectations! Not necessarily a revelation in cinema, but a hellova fun ride and certainly the film Natasha deserves after a long-served tenure in the MCU. And can we just TALK about how fantastic Yelena is? Anyway, let's get into all deets!
If we get to season 2, we might actually see something happen...
The beginning of the Millar-verse on Netflix, we got through all eight episodes of the brand new Jupiter's Legacy adaptation and we were... well, kind of underwhelmed. But I guess that'll happen when you spend 8 hours on 2 comic issues. Come hear what worked, what didn't, and what we hope to get from a (maybe?) season 2.
Big Liz vs King Monk - who wins?
It's a battle for the ages - the giant ape who just wants to be left alone, versus man's protector, the ever alpha mega-lizard. Who wins, who loses - is it the best movie ever?
It's Godzilla vs. Kong! And it's... fine? Look, we're not breaking any barriers with this flick, but come find out if our predictions were right anyway!
And now we get to be depressed about no sequels...
After years of talking smack as non-believers, we sat down and committed the time to watch the newly released Zack Snyder cut of Justice League. And honestly guys... we were wrong. This movie is awesome!
A relatively non-spoilery episode, we break down WHY it's better, and why having a 4 hour runtime is actually it's biggest strength.
