Well, now we've at least SEEN the toys in the box, I guess...
It's got a really long name, but between some excellent acting, tasty horror vibes, and pure Sam Raimi goodness, there's a lot to enjoy about this movie. Do we have our qualms?... yeah, we do. What, did you think this was a Spider-Man movie or something?
Maybe someday we'll get a movie from this universe that's worth seeing...
So, it's not the worst movie we've ever seen. In fact, it might even be better than Venom: Let There Be Carnage... but that doesn't mean it's good. Or even, really, okay. It's just sort of... well, it's kind of bad. Sony, why do you keep doing this to us?
Finally putting the "detective" back in Detective Comics...
There have been many movies about the Bat, but the new 3-hour spectacle from Matt Reeves is unafraid to take risks and do things the previous films haven't done, while staying very true to the comic source material. To say we were impressed is an understatement! However, when we say don't buy the big drink from concessions, we mean it...
I'm really excited we get to review a movie THIS CUTE.
It's not every day that we get to talk about a romantic comedy on the podcast, but heck, it doesn't get more appropriate than on Valentine's Day! And this one IS a comic book movie, just with a lot less punching (but still a fair amount of spandex...).
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!
