  • Marvels Jessica Jones: Season 2 Review

    Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 2 Review

    13/03/2018 Duração: 01h08s

    Marvel's Netflix series Jessica Jones has returned for it's second season and we are giving our full breakdown and review.    This season focuses on the internal turmoil that can arise when revisiting past trauma in search of closure. Where many Marvel series focus strongly on establishing the contrast between heroes and villains, Jessica Jones Season 2 challenges those ideas and puts forward a more personal story. This serves the series will in that it differentiates itself from the other shows in the Marvel/Netflix universe.   Season 2 has more than it's fair share of subplots as well. The secondary characters all have their own stories that branch off of the main narrative. Some of those subplots are more successful than others, but the core of the story remains that arc of Jessica Jones herself.    Let us know your thoughts on Facebook and Twitter Subscribe on iTunes or listen on Stitcher

  • Annihilation - Review

    Annihilation - Review

    02/03/2018 Duração: 52min

    Annihilation is the latest film from Alex Garland, whose debut film Ex Machina, was a critically acclaimed work of sci-fi filmmaking. Garland sticks with that genre with his adaptation of the Jeff VanderMeer's book Annihilation. The adaptation is loose as Garland, after reading the book, wrote the screenplay based on his memory of the book, never referring back to it so that he could retain the "dream-like" quality of the story. Annihilation follows the story of a biologist who enters into a natural phenomena called "The Shimmer," that seems to be having an impact on the environment around it. Within the deeper story we find evident themes of self-destruction, refraction, creation and metastasization. These themes are well explored as a work of science-fiction, but a film in this genre would not be complete without stunning visuals and world-building which this film does so well. It also includes a creature so unsettling that the mere realization that it exists on film will make you recoil while also grinning

  • Black Panther - Review

    Black Panther - Review

    21/02/2018 Duração: 55min

    Black Panther has finally hit theaters and we are here to give our review. Ryan Coogler is directing the latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but this time things are different. Black Panther is not just a comic book film, it is a transcendent cultural experience. Marvel has been wildly successful with the MCU but their films are not without criticism. The studio has struggled particularly with introductory films for its heroes while also providing a Rogues Gallery of villains that range from tepid to forgettable. But this is where Black Panther breaks the mold and sets itself apart.  This film explores issues of power, privilege and responsibility. It does not shy away from discussions of race. It has a villain whose motivations are not only understandable but difficult to reason against. It’s perhaps Marvel’s most well told story. It’s a comic book film that is making a statement. In this podcast we give our full review and breakdown of Ryan Coogler’s awesome, Black Panther. Let us know your

    Solo: A Star Wars Story - First Impressions

    08/02/2018 Duração: 53min

    This week we finally got our first look at Solo: A Star Wars Story. This film has been the subject of a great deal of rumor and conjecture ever since Ron Howard was brought in to replace the original directors, Lord and Miller. There have been some who have said this film is dead on arrival, and that the lack of a trailer had shown that Lucasfilm has given up on Solo. But, what a difference a few days makes. The Solo trailer is very well put together and the film looks like a lot of fun. In this podcast we discuss our first impressions from the trailer as well as what real challenges the movie will have to overcome in order for it to be successful. Additionally, we talk about some of our own speculation as to what the plot of the film may involve. Let us know your thoughts on Facebook and Twitter Subscribe on iTunes or listen on Stitcher

  • Get Out - A Terrific Thriller and Biting Satire

    Get Out - A Terrific Thriller and Biting Satire

    18/01/2018 Duração: 40min

    It took us long enough, but we finally got around to seeing Get Out and we really want to talk about it. Jordan Peele makes a big splash in his directorial debut. Horror films are usually generic, low on thrills but high on jump scares. It is rare that we get a smart, suspenseful horror film, but that is what Get Out is. However, it is also much more. It is a satire of white guilt and a parable for institutional racism. He plays with and subverts audience expectations when it comes to the racial dynamics of the film. Get Out is a lot of fun to watch. It is brilliantly crafted and shows such polish that it is shocking to think of it as a first film. There are also a lot of fun winks and nods along the way. In this podcast, we do a full breakdown of Get Out. Let us know your thoughts on Facebook and Twitter Subscribe on iTunes or listen on Stitcher

  • Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi - 3rd Review

    Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi - 3rd Review

    04/01/2018 Duração: 01h09min

    The Last Jedi is a film that continues to spark conversation among it's fans as well as it's detractors. But amidst the back and forth shouting, we believe that are some really interesting discussions to be had around this film. From it's meta-commentary to it's applicability to real-life scenarios, The Last Jedi just has so much to unpack. This is our 3rd podcast dedicated to the film.    In this show we dive even deeper into the film. We discuss the odd mystery of Luke's ceremonial Jedi robes and the potentially dark implications of his wardrobe change. We also dig deeper into Kylo Ren's attempt to manipulate Rey to join the dark side, and how that manipulation is reflective of a cultural moment we are currently living in.   Please enjoy are continuing discussion of Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.

    Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi - 2nd Review (Themes)

    20/12/2017 Duração: 01h45min

    We have now each had a chance to see The Last Jedi twice and we are continuing our discussion of the film. This time we are digging deeper into the themes of the film which include: ascension and facing the future, coming to terms with failure and finding your place in the world. This film has been a hot subject of debate in the fan community and even on our podcast we find ourselves having differing opinions on The Last Jedi. One thing we both agree on is that this is one of the most thematically dense Star Wars films with dialogue that reveals so much about the characters that it takes multiple viewings to unpack it all. Even as we post this episode we are planning another discussion of the film.

    Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is just a few days away and we are ready for it. After 2 years of anticipation, all of our favorites are back(minus Han). We wanted to do a podcast that will serve as a preview episode, almost a pre-game show for The Last Jedi.   We wanted to use this podcast to talk about our expectations of the film, which are unusually higher than normal, and why they are so.

  • Pixars Coco - Review

    Pixar's Coco - Review

    28/11/2017 Duração: 54min

    Pixar's latest film, Coco has arrived in theaters and it is time for our podcast review of the film. There was a time when it seems as though every Pixar film was a monster hit, and a treasure of modern storytelling. The studio was unstoppable. Recently however, they have been in a bit of a slump. Inside out earned rave reviews and was an outstanding film, but The Good Dinosaur and Cars 3 fell well short of expectations both critically and financially.   But now Coco is here...and it is fantastic. It's dazzling visuals, enchanting music and heartfelt story make it one of Pixar's finest films. It is a love letter to Mexican culture, showing respect and reverence while still having some fun with tradition without mocking it.   This film is everything we love about going to the movies. A rich environment with character we connect with and a story that with great aspiration.   Please enjoy our podcast review of Coco.   Let us know your thoughts on Facebook and Twitter Subscribe on iTunes or listen on Stitcher  

  • Justice League - Review

    Justice League - Review

    22/11/2017 Duração: 55min

    It's time for our review of Justice League. It's been a rocky road for the DC Comics Cinematic Universe. After fairly decent start with Man of Steel, they stumbled badly with Batman v Superman and things got even worse with Suicide Squad. Wonder Woman however, turned out to be a great success and rekindled some hope that these amazing characters could be brought together for an awesome film. Unfortunately, many of the problems that existed in Batman v Superman still exist in Justice League. The story is choppy, the script is below average, the villain is underdeveloped and the moments that should feel epic and awesome just simply fall flat. There are some positives in the film. Wonder Woman is a joy to watch and The Flash essentially steals the movie. There is an excellent scene at the Superman statue and the soundtrack also has some fun throwbacks to previous DC films. But in the end, its just a big CGI laden mess. Perhaps most frustrating is that this is a film that had a decent outline. The elements of a p
