12 Strong – S03E02

Howdy, all! We’re back again, this time with the latest Chris Hemsworth vehicle,

12 Strong

Based on the the exploits of the first special ops group to enter Afghanistan barely a month after the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11, 12 Strong details the military and political considerations of the world’s most advanced fighting force going into a country which has been under almost continual attack from without or within for centuries.

But is the movie any good?

Let’s see.


*Forgive my scratchy voice in this episode. We recorded this about an hour before I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with Bronchitis. Needless to say, it’s been hard to talk without coughing like a 2 pack a day smoker, lol. I edited quite a few hacks from this episode for your enjoyment.*

Darkest Hour – S03E01

Welcome back, everyone, to the Visually Stunning Movie Podcast.

I am excited to announce this is the first episode of our THIRD SEASON! It’s been a great time, and I hope you all continue to enjoy.

With that, let’s talk about this episodes film,

Darkest Hour

Starring Gary Oldman, Darkest Hour tells the story of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, from his election to the almost immediate crisis of Dunkirk.

Much has been made of Oldman’s performance, which has already earned him a Golden Globe win for Best Actor.

Let’s get started!
