Ep. #22 – The Sequel Was Better, Part 1

We are back! From the bottom of our geeky hearts, we apologize for our prolonged absence, but we are now back in action!

For the latest episode of the podcast, we sit down with Jared Rigsby for part 1 of “The Sequel Was Better”. We talk about certain instances in cinematic history where, you guessed it, the sequel was better than the original. Of course, much to do with movies is subjective, so we do the best we can to discuss films where the overwhelming majority of movie-goers think the sophomore attempt showed an increase in quality.

Ep. #21 – Thanos Demands You Listen To This Podcast

We’re back! In today’s episode, my good friends Mark Conwell and Jared Rigsby join me to discuss the much anticipated Avengers: Inifnity War. I’ll go ahead and throw this out there: **SPOILER ALERT AHEAD!**

During segment one, we each talk about our overall thoughts and feelings on the film, what we did/didn’t like about it, and give a letter grade for the movie.

During segment two, we had more of a free-wheeling discussion about Inifinity War. We touched on a few things such as what we thought about Thanos as a villian, how well the Russo brothers balanced out the huge ensemble cast, and our favorite fight scenes.

And for segment three, we threw out some of our predictions on where we think the MCU will go from here, how they’ll wrap up Phase 3, and what we might expect after that.

Ep. #01 – Originals In Cinema

Hello everyone! Our main topic today is about original films. I thought it would an appropriate topic since this is our first episode, and originals and beginnings kind of go hand in hand. We’re living in a world where original screenplays are few and far between. Most of what we see in theaters nowadays are movies based on books/comic books, reboots, or sequels. Don’t get me wrong, we all love these movies, and there’s very little that will keep us from continuing to see these films. However, it is a sad fact that original films could be considered a dying breed. Today, we’re going to dedicate our very first episode to originals in cinema.
