It took Marvel 21 films but they finally have a female-led superhero flick. We are joined by Patrick Willems to discuss the origin story of Captain Marvel and how it fits within the MCU franchise, as well as whether the film’s high expectations were met and how its cultural significance is woven into the narrative.

Episode 150: Alita: Battle Angel

This week we discuss the live-action/CGI film adaptation of a classic cyberpunk manga. The film, written and produced by James Cameron and directed by Robert Rodriguez, carries a giant budget of $170 million and is another hugely ambitious visual blockbuster from Cameron. We’re on record as generally being very big fans of his work thus far, and like every episode in our James Cameron Director Month of January 2019, we love digging into the themes he writes.

Episode 149: The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

Who would have thought that an animated movie based on Lego minifigs would ever become must-see cinema? But here we are. THE LEGO MOVIE 2 goes bigger than ever before and we’re a bit split on just how well that worked. We talk through the pop culture reference-heavy thematically rich sequel with so much going on that it couldn’t help but give us plenty to discuss. Our hope is that this podcast is gonna stuck inside your heeeeeeaaaad.

Episode 147: Starship Troopers

This week we have a conversation about our January Donor Pick episode, the 1997 Paul Verhoeven adaptation of the classic Robert Heinlein science fiction novel. This movie, shall we say, takes a few liberties, but does touch on many of the same interesting themes as its source material. This is the third time STARSHIP TROOPERS was up for a donor pick episode and we’re excited to finally be discussing it.

Episode 146: Avatar

We close out our James Cameron Director Month series with a conversation about a film that comes in just under 3 hours. It had a $250 million dollar budget and is still the current world box office record holder. This film has definitely made its mark on the cinematic world, enough to spawn eventual sequels, and its own bit of social controversy. We discuss!

Episode 143: The Abyss

For the second week in a row we go underwater, this time to kick-off our Director Month series on the films of James Cameron. Much has been said about the production problems this film faced and we get into those, but also have a deep discussion about the incredible character development that drives this sci-fi thriller along. Don’t worry, we also have thoughts on the film’s controversial ending, too.
