After the dire circumstances of Infinity War, Marvel lightens the mood a bit.
It’s hard enough to capture lightening in a bottle once…
I love going to the movies but life keeps me so busy that the vast majority of movies I see are with my kids, leaving me with the difficult task of carving out late nights or some other time to watch more grown-up titles and Red Sparrow. Still, thanks to streaming services, long plane rides, and AMC A-List, I managed to see a whopping 51 movies in 2018! It’s nothing compared to Watson, but at nearly one a week, I’m happy about that.
Set before the events of Avengers: Infinity War, Scott Lang returns as the lovable crook, turned hero known as Ant-Man. The original film was charming enough, but it ranked in … Read More
Solo is out but only 2/3 of the Geeks have seen it–find out why Ryan had to leave the movie just a few minutes in and hear Jenny and Watson’s spoiler-free take on the film. Then the geeks talk about the future of a few of our most beloved franchises: Star Wars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the DC Expanded Universe, Harry Potter, and Game of Thrones. What lies in store for these properties?
The Geeks have made it through the Infinity War! What did they think of the epic adventure? Where is the Marvel Cinematic Universe heading? Who will survive Watson’s latest trivia game? And what did our crew think of Deadpool 2? So much to gab about!

True, the gems are fragments of infinite power and the man in question wants to use the glove to kill half the universe, but those are just details. Obtaining the gems for his glove presents some problems. One is being guarded by an entire planet of police, another is wedged into the forehead of a superhero, several are in undisclosed locations. But one of those gems, the Soul Stone, is not only hidden but has decided to impose a quite dick-ish test for any who may want to wield its power. So it’s time for us to talk about why the Soul Stone is such a dick.
I have to admit, I wasn’t chomping at the bit or looking at my watch waiting for this one. On Thursday, my son Clayton asked me to rate my excitement … Read More
The Geeks love Death Drafts. Having done one for last season’s Game of Thrones (and a Dream Team edition too!) the three podcasters and Jonathan (Jenny’s husband, but you knew that) decided to weigh in on who we thought would die in the latest Avengers movie. Here’s how it went down as we drafted even while Watson was flying to Asia. Let us know who you think will win!
We are about to witness a historic moment in superhero adaptations. Sure we’ve had an Avengers movie or three. Sure that airport scene in Civil War felt like something out … Read More
