This week Justin and Stew (whose audio WILL get better in a few episodes, I promise) discuss the penultimate (for now) Jurassic Park movie! Jurassic World: Fallen Kingom was released in 2018 and made enough money for a final installment to be released a few years later, but… should it have?
What do you think of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom? Let us know!!
After Thanos snapped half of the universe out of existence, Ant-Man and the Wasp was released! Taking place roughly at the same time as Avengers: Infinity War, this film follows Scott Lang as he’s under house arrest for helping Captain America in Germany during the events of Captain America: Civil War. Meanwhile Hope and Hank Pym set out to rescue Janet Pym from the Quantum Realm and, much to their chagrin, need Scott’s help!
What do you think of the second Ant-Man movie? Love it? Hate it? Let us know!
Time for another DC animated movie! This time it’s the superb All-Star Superman based on the graphic novel by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely. Adapted by the late-great Dwayne McDuffie, All-Star Superman has an amazing cast who all knock it out of the park, including Anthony LaPaglia as Lex Luthor. Justin and Stew were excited to re-watch and discuss this movie and we hope you enjoy it! Check it out and let us know what you think of All-Star Superman!
The movie that introduced us to Captain Jack Sparrow, the role that Johnny Depp is most known for (and got him an Oscar nomination) was released twenty years ago and spawned four sequels. It also made Keira Knightly a star and a household name and proved to everyone that you could, in fact, make a good movie based on a silly Disney ride. So how does the movie hold up after twenty years? Check out what the guys think and let us know what you think of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl!!
I suppose it’s a bit of a stretch to say Chronicle is a “superhero movie” but it’s definitely inspired by comic books and superheroes. Josh Trank’s film focuses on three teenagers who are given superpowers and how they each respond to their “great power.” It’s a found footage movie, which works for the most part, but can be distracting at times (as far as found footage movies go, this one is near the top of the list though). It’s a short, tight film that asks some big questions. What do you think of Chronicle?
Based on the iconic graphic novel by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli, Bryan Cranston plays Commissioner Gordon and Ben McKenzie is The Dark Knight in his first year of crime fighting as the Caped Crusader. Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer took a lot of inspiration from the graphic novel for Batman Begins and you can definitely see it when watching this movie. A great adaptation and a really well-done animated film. What do you think about Batman: Year One?
In 2007, Michael Bay delivered the long awaited live-action Transformers movie. Differing from the TV show and animated movie, this film is centered around a human teenager buying his first car and trying to hit on the hot, popular girl in school. He just also happens to be the descendant of an explorer who stumbled upon the frozen remains of Megatron. The map to the All-Spark (the cube that gives Autobots and Decepticons life) was imprinted on the explorer’s glasses, which the teenage boy now possesses. So the Decepticons are after him and the Autobots must protect him (and the All-Spark). Do fans of Transformers like this movie? What about just regular movie fans? Check out what Justin and Stew think and let us know what you think of Transformers!
Probably most famous for being the last film of Brandon Lee, son of Bruce Lee, The Crow is a dark tale of vengeance directed by Alex Proyas. Despite Lee’s on-set death, the film was finished and released and is considered by some to be a brilliant comic adaptation. It was received well by critics and audiences alike with most reviews praising Lee’s performance. So how does the film hold up nearly 30 years later? Check out what the guys think and be sure to let us know what you think of The Crow!
In the 80’s, Transformers were huge. The toys were amazing and the TV show was a hit. So the next logical step: give them their own movie! Released in 1986, Transformers ended up being a box office disappointment and sparked some controversy over one character’s death. The movie has a bit of a cult following now and is considered a classic. Have you seen it? What do you think? Let us know!
Universal Studios decided it wasn’t done with Isla Nublar or Jurassic Park and hired director Colin Trevorrow to helm the franchise’s fourth film. Although this sequel ignores parts 2 and 3 and is considered a soft reboot, whatever that means. This time around we’ve got a whole new cast of characters. In fact, we’ve got whole new dinosaurs, including one that was genetically engineered: The Indominus Rex. Was this sequel necessary? Is it any good? Check out what the guys think of it and let us know what you think of Jurassic World!
