The third installment in Marvel’s Captain America franchise, Civil War, pits our superheroes against each other. Will our host be on different teams when reviewing this movie?
We keep it spoiler free until our spoiler warning towards the end of the show. We also talk about the new Dr. Strange trailer and make some comparisions with Batman V Superman Dawn Of Justice which seems to have dealt with some similar topics.
Captain America: Civil War hits UK theaters tomorrow, Friday April 29!
Step right this way ladies and gentlemen, for the show of a lifetime. We’re not necessarily saying this is the BEST Upod to date (it is damned good of course), but more like there’s a lifetime’s stuff in this one! This weeks special guest is Adam Lowes from HeyUGuys, one of the most awesome FilmBlog on the net. What didn’t we talk about in Episode 33 I wonder?
In the words of Janice from Friends(a very popular series in the 90’s-Ed)…”oh, My, GAWD!”, do we have a show and a half for you this week. The Upod tri…erm…pod, was hyperactive like never before; it’s almost easier to tell you about what we didn’t talk about than what we did!
We kick-off with the great and not so good of current TV and movies. Has Ahmed been transformed by the final installment of Michael Bay‘s robotganza, or just bored without la Fox? Green Lantern gets the treatment next and is swiftly followed by Bridesmaids and by Bad Teacher. Cameron (Diaz NOT James) is free to spank me anytime – I’m the naughty pupil that needs teaching. (easy tiger! Ed)
Next up, two of our favourites. Newly Emmy nominated Louis CK and his “let me take you to a dark place and leave you there” humour and comedy GOAT Larry David‘s Curb Your Enthusiasm, season 8 curtain raiser. After 7 seasons, we surely know where the jokes are going to go, but we are still powerless to stop the inevitable hilarious and of course slightly uncomfortable outcome.
We somehow take a pause for breath whilst we look forward to December and review the trailer for MI:4 Ghost Protocol. And that’s not something we thought was possible from a Tom Cruise action film featuring an Eminem theme song.
Finally, we get in the mood for the next big summer blockbuster – and possible saviour of comic book films this year – Captain America. Much as we’d like to have had a world exclusive secret screening, we haven’t and had to content ourselves with Albert Pyun‘s 1990 marvel instead. It’s got Ned Beatty and Ronny Cox in support roles so it has all the potential for an underrated classic. We let you know where to start with the Captain America franchise!
Martin explains the difference in Extended takes and tracking shots and confuses the hell out out of Asim.
Asim talks about potential casting choices for the upcoming Captain America movie and why this movie will be a tough task to accomplish.
This weeks Genre is the 80’s classics: The secret of my success. Directed by Herbert Ross mostly know from Footloose. We all loved this movie and were dying to revisit it. Let us know what you thought of the show in the comments section
