Infinity War Podcast

Avengers: Infinity War

A few weeks ago, the third installment in the Avengers series and the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe broke theaters.  Since, it’s the fastest movie ever to gross 1 billion dollars and the tears of superhero fans could probably fill an Olympic size swimming pool.  (Okay, maybe I exaggerate.) I joined Thomas over at Superhero Moviecast for this part two, full on spoiler podcast episode to discuss in depth this ultimate crossover!

2017's Good Films, But Not Great

Good Films, But Not Great from 2017


  1. Murder on the Orient Express

Based on Agatha Christie’s novel of the same name, Murder on the Orient Express is a story about the famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot.  (Not Hercules, he does not slay the dragons.)  Attempting to have a holiday, murder and mystery seem to follow Poirot wherever he goes.  While aboard the Orient Express, a grisly stabbing occurs and Poirot is forced to cut his holiday short to solve the crime that everyone aboard appears to have a connection to, including the sleuth himself.  

A massive Poirot fan my whole life, I was ecstatic at the prospect of a new, high budget adaptation of Christie’s most famous detective.  It was enjoyable, though imperfect.  You can read my full review here.

12 Must See Films from 2017


Looking back on 2017, it’s been a fantastic year for film and television, but every year has its duds.  While everyone is putting out lists of the 10 best movies, I thought I’d do something slightly different.  No one can see them all, and I certainly didn’t (though I hope to catch up, especially with the Golden Globe nominees) but I did see over 30 films in theaters throughout those 12 months.  This is part 1 of several articles where I will give general thoughts and rankings of every film I saw in 2017.  I guess we’ll start at the top.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi


So far, this has been the most controversial and divisive Star Wars movie among fans.  The sequel to 2015's The Force Awakens has taken the Star Wars franchise past the hefty 4 billion dollar price tag paid by Disney, back when they bought Lucasfilm a few years ago.  It's the number one movie in the world right now, no doubt.  The question is, does it deliver?

I joined Thomas over at Superhero Moviecast with guest Tyson Oliver to discuss the latest Star Wars installment, The Last Jedi.  During this part 2 podcast, we talk about the divisive fan reactions, what we felt worked and maybe what didn't.  You can check out our mixed thoughts here.  If you enjoy listening, leave a 5 star review so Superhero Moviecast can expand their audience.
