Disney and Streaming Services – WTFWT?

Welcome, everybody! This is the first iteration of a new feature here at the Visually Stunning Movie Podcast. You see, every so often, we kind of get off-topic during our recording sessions, and I have to edit those bits out so the episodes make sense.

But–

But sometimes the stuff we tangent off into is a fun bit of fluff, so I save them. Now I’ve decided to turn them into a separate (but equal) set of mini-episodes that will still show up in the feed for your enjoyment.

I’ll let you listen to the episode to figure out what I’ve decided to call this offshoot of VSMP, but for reference purposes, I’ll call it “WTFWT?”

So here’s the first shot. I’ll be playing catch up with previous bits of audio, and will add them as they arise going forward.

Enjoy!

Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl footage.

Marvel teased some more of the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War during the Super Bowl, and I just have one or two questions:

What is the runtime on this going to be: Three hours? The Russo brothers are going to have their hands full to balance the screen time for all the heroes to prevent complaints that “such-and-so was just a cameo,” and the like. That would be a shame.

Thanos looks better here than he did in the earlier trailer, but someone pointed out that may be a trick of the light, so the jury is still out on that one.

Steve Rogers’/Captain America’s/Nomad’s new Wakandan shield certainly looks cool, but its functionality will be 100% NOT what we—or he, for that matter—is used to. Will it impact his fighting style/effectiveness? We shall see.

A couple of times I thought the CGI looked a bit… wonky. I hope that’s a result of them not actually being 100% completed yet.

If Tom Holland can’t keep a secret about the movie, it’s just a reflection of the fact Spider-Man can’t keep his damned mask on. It’s Peter Parker in Spider-Man pajamas in this footage, too, lol. The mask is there for a reason, Pete!

Overall, I’ve got enough faith in Marvel, and the Russo Brothers, to be worried about this film at a level of approximately 3%. Why 3%? Because you never really know, and unlike some people, if this film manages, somehow, to fall into that 3%, I’ll be ready to talk about it honestly.

But I don’t expect that to happen.

Definitely hoping for an early screening on this one, as well.

See you in May!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Oh, dear. In a year filled with Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Wonder Woman, Dunkirk, and Justice League,  we are finally face to face with the sure-fire blockbuster movie all of them avoided going up against.

The cinematic juggernaut of juggernauts,

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Episode VIII, for all of you keeping track at home (or Episode 8 if your school didn’t teach Roman numerals), this Rian Johnson-directed installment of the Skywalker family saga has been eagerly awaited by fans since the the final credits ran on Episode VII (7) 2 years ago.

What could The Last Jedi do to top The Force Awakens?

What doesn’t it do? Or try to?

Marvel’s “The Inhumans”

What’s up everyone? I just walked in the door and want to give you all a very quick, very rough, take on the IMAX release of the upcoming Marvel Television offering,
