It’s a Giant-Sized Episode #100 featuring Kaitlyn Booth from Bleeding Cool and a full hour of spoiler-free discussion of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Family. Character moments. Character pairings. Platonic relationships. Music breakdown.
FIVE movies this week. You’d think there was some sort of holiday weekend or something. Assassin’s Creed continues the streak of bad video game adaptations. Sing is bright, colorful, predictable and little else. Why Him? is side-stitchingly hilarious. Passengers has some problems but more good than bad. Fences will win so many Oscars.
Soundtrack for this episode provided by George Michael.
Adam has a sad because he hasn’t seen The Magnificent Seven or Storks. Andy has a sad because he has. Nah, not really. Storks is mediocre and boring. Why would you see anything but Kubo? And Magnificent Seven seems to have nothing to say except “pew pew!”
Jurassic World – It has its flaws, but we both loved it. Buy the premise, but the bit. Lots of easter eggs and nods to the first film. Maybe too many nods– and outright aping shots and score from the first one. Christ Pratt is awesome. Least annoying kids. Wasted D’Onofrio. Adam gives it 7/10, Andy gives it 7.5/10. For more and to read us arguing with Bryan Young, read the roundtable review over at Big Shiny Robot.
In Memoriam: Christopher Lee – Yes Saruman and Dooku, but so much more. Andy talks The Man with the Golden Gun. Lee’s Nazi-hunting days. Tolkien expert and stabbing expert. Adam talks heavy metal and Christmas albums.
Music in this week’s episode taken from the Jurassic Park score by John Williams, the Fellowship of the Ring score by Howard Shore, and “The Bloody Verdict of Verden” from Christopher Lee’s metal rock opera about Charlemagne.
