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, 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?
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
Thank You For Your Service
You don’t see the connection, you say?
I’d tell you to sit back and enjoy this episode, but these aren’t necessarily the movies to say that about.
Hey, everyone. This is another non-standard episode, one which touches directly on what we do here at the Visually Stunning Movie Podcast; how we view what we do as critics compared to what you all think about what we do here.
There’s a lot of talk about the role of critics and reviews, and review aggregation sites like Rotten Tomatoes, and some of that discussion got me thinking… well, it got me angry really, and I decided that we needed to hash out what our job here really is.
Have a listen, and please, let us know what you think. Are we right? Wrong? Is one or both of us full of crap?
In the end, we do this for you all, hopefully to give you some good information about your movie dollars. If we’re not providing that to you, then I, for one, would very much like to know about it.
And so, without any further ado–
Up this time is
Only the Brave
Starring Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, and Taylor Kitsch, Only the Brave is based on the real-life story of the Granite Mountain Hot Shots, a wildfire fighting team from Prescott, Arizona.
Can the quasi-rookie director, Joseph Kosinski, who directed the science fiction films Tron: Legacy and Oblivion bring home the story of twenty brave men, destined for greatness and tragedy?
Gear up and let’s find out.
