After the hugely successful Spider-Man 2, everyone had high expectations for part 3. Unfortunately, those expectations were not met. Instead we got a movie over-stuffed with villains, cheesy dialogue and Peter Parker dancing in the street. Spider-Man 3 should have been great but instead it was a sad ending to Sam Raimi’s trilogy. Listen to what the guys have to say about it below!

Or something like that.

The film stars Michael Jai White as Simmons/Spawn, John Leguizamo as The Violator (Clown) and Martin Sheen as Jason Wynn.

Is Spawn good? Take a listen and let the guys tell you what they think.

After the hugely successful films of Phase One, Marvel decided to take a chance on a group of intergalactic heroes known as the Guardians of the Galaxy. Had you ever heard of the Guardians, because John and Justin sure hadn’t. It was a bit of a gamble on Marvel’s part. This movie could have been a big flop but went on to be a huge success. Check out what the guys have to say about it below!

Back in the 80’s when the Nintendo Entertainment System came out, the world changed for millions of kids. The world was introduced to Mario and the game was a mega-hit. Sequels to the game soon followed and before long Hollywood came knocking. Skip ahead to 1993 and the world is now introduced to the live-action Mario and Luigi. Brought to life by Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo with Dennis Hopper playing the evil King Koopa. The film was a big flop at the box office, which isn’t a huge surprise. This film is weird. But how do you adapt a video game about a plumber in Mushroom Kingdom? These filmmakers sure gave it a try, and failed pretty badly. Check out what the guys have to say about it below!
