Justice League

Welcome back, everyone, to the Visually Stunning Movie Podcast. This time out, we’re on to the second potential Fall/Winter season blockbuster:

Justice League

DC and Warner Brothers are trying to build on the phenomenal success of the stand-alone Wonder Woman.

Can Batman/Bruce Wayne successfully unite this disparate group of heroes to battle the evil Steppenwolf? Can Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg save Superman and save the planet from obliteration?

(By the way: isn’t the planet in imminent danger of obliteration in all these superhero movies?)

I get the feeling we’re not all going to agree on this one, if history is any indication….

Murder on the Orient Express

Welcome back, everyone! We’re still recovering from the blockbuster weekend that was Thor: Ragnarok (listen to our review of that HERE), and it’s time to move on to this weekend’s cinematic heavyweight,

Murder on the Orient Express

With a star-studded cast including Kenneth Branagh, Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Judi Dench, Willem Dafoe, Michelle Pfieffer, Josh Gad, Leslie Odom, Jr., and Penelope Cruz, Hollywood has bet big on this adaptation of one of Agatha Christie’s most popular works.

Can also-director Branagh keep such a wide-ranging cast contained, much like their cinematic counterparts are contained on the titular train? Or will the vastness of the cast escape his control?

All aboard!

Be warned: we take a tangent into some dark places in Hollywood as we talk about the upcoming awards season.

Thor: Ragnarok

Well, we’ve entered the Fall season, everyone, and the first of the trinity of true blockbuster-potential movies is upon us.

This time up, we’re (finally) talking about Marvel’s latest entry into their Cinematic Universe,

Thor: Ragnarok

Thor, Loki, Heimdall, Valkyrie–and let’s not forget The Hulk–band together to escape the clutches of Grandmaster and defeat Hela, Goddess of Death.

Can they do it?

A Two-fer! “Goodbye Christopher Robin” and “Thank You For Your Service”

Greetings, one and all. We’ve got kind of a different episode for you this time. We’re going to be talking about the TWO films we saw this week because they share some of the same themes, and so it makes sense.

We give you the stories of A.A. Milne, creator of Winnie the Pooh, and a tale of soldiers dealing with the aftermath of the War on Terror in the Middle-East:

Goodbye Christopher Robin

and

Thank You For Your Service

You don’t see the connection, you say?

You will.

I’d tell you to sit back and enjoy this episode, but these aren’t necessarily the movies to say that about.
