The reviews are in Marvel's "The Inhumans" is horrible. On the other hand, "The Gifted" has promise. This episode Patrick and Allan break down Marvel's latest two television offerings and discuss the good, the bad plot holes, and the ugly effects of both shows.
For this episode, Allan finally sat down and watched the first season of "Game of Thrones". We know...the rest of the pop culture world is anticipating the final season, but it's Allan. The discussion delves into the show's racism, nudity, and somehow Sesame Street.
This week we look at the recent toy hall of fame inductees. We learn that Allan thinks Clue is way too violent...but also thinks sand is a toy. Also, spirograph is something that Patrick, alone, thinks is amazing.
In this episode we wrap-up the summer with a look back on some of the movies we didn't get to discuss before. Spiderman, War for the Planet of the Apes and the beloved Emoji Movie. We also learn that Patrick has a secret love for Jar Jar Binks and Garfield. Allan does not share this love. And finally, we take another look at the "Rotten Tomatoes" effect on the Hollywood box office.
Jessica Jones, Danny Rand, Luke Cage and Matt Murdock, better known as the Defenders! Allan and Patrick break down the latest Marvel superhero ...mash up! A positive is that the show addresses some of the flack Marvel has received about the consequences of superheroes actions and that the chemistry between the team was great. On a negative note, Danny Rand. If you've seen it, you understand.
As the seasons begin to change and summer transforms into fall, we give you our last podcast of the summer! It may seem a little late, but let's be real. It's the Transformers...you know what we're going to say. Actually, we have a pretty good discussion on why we should love Transforms and look forward to the 'splosions of summer cinema!
Bobby Austin, Allan's son, joins us this episode and shares his thoughts on the what makes "Even More Mashed-Up" tick. Where were we wrong? Do Patrick's numbers matter? Why is Rich even here? Has Patrick ever listened to the show? How many Kirk's on motorcycles are too many for Allan? Join us on a meta journey into Mashed-Up Mayhem!
This week we bring you a double feature from depth farther than any cinephile should travel. In our "Ocean Motion" episode Allan and Patrick discuss the deep sea treasures Baywatch and Pirates of the Caribbean. To say that neither of these films has their sea legs is a waste of a good pun. Baywatch is often confused between trying to be a buddy cop film and making fun of itself; while Pirates is the fifth movie made about a Disney ride. Need we say more?
The DCEU may have finally done it. Wonder Woman, while it has some issues here and there, is the awe-inspiring, action filled, superhero film we want all superhero films to be. Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot have made it clear that a female director directing a female-led story can not only work but work big. and maybe even save an entire cinematic universe. Poignant, funny, fierce and action packed, DC finally has a tick in the win column.
