With "The Last Jedi" just hours away and only a few short months until "Black Panther" arrives, Patrick and Allan decided to do a deep dive in both trailers and layout what they hope for...and what they expect.
If you're not a fanboy...this popcorn action flick is great. If you love DC comics and wanted this film to salvage the DCEU...we're sorry. Maybe the next one. From Affleck's and Cavil's lackluster performances to the lack of backstory for Cyborg and Flash, the movie didn't offer much other than a way of showing how Wonder Woman is the best DC property to date. The DCEU is playing catch-up with the MCU... but probably won't catch them. Marvel had more time to develop the individual backstories before the Avengers was released, where DC had to rush to get the Justice League out.
Unless you've been living under a (ragna)rok you know that the latest Thor installment has taken the MCU by storm. And people actually like it. Patrick and Allan (friends from work) set out to explore what makes this Marvel stand above the rest and discuss where it ranks in the overall MCU.
Sometimes it's hard to replicate the past. At least that's the case with "Blade Runner 2049". The movie, which had a critic score of 89 and an audience score of 81 on Rotton Tomatoes, doesn't hold up to the original. The sequel is boring, has a bad color palette, terrible sound design and takes away what made the original so great, mystery. 2049 ends with a finite ending, leaving no room for interpretation. The movie was so boring that Patrick got up and walked around the theatre to get his steps in and Allan was checking his watch at an hour in.
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.
