PIXAR SO WHITE

Howdy fellow interwebbers,

For our first week’s episode we answer the questions: Is the Little Mermaid insane, why Pixar so white, and would a return to the Pie Hole be fruitful?

Let’s begin!

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON – “I’m Calling Veronica”

Do you like roller coasters? Do you like Marvel movies? If you answered “yes” to both of these, AGE OF ULTRON is going to be a hella good time for you! Go see it. Now. You’ll probably want to ride it again as soon as you’re through. If your answer was “no” to either of those, or you’re concerned with the film’s currently measly 75% approval on Rotten Tomatoes, let me address the concerns. Roller Coasters: This film has 6 protagonists when it starts, and the number only grows from…

DAREDEVIL (SEASON 1) – The Marvel Cinematic Universe Grows Up

DAREDEVIL pulls no punches, and with the freedom to ignore MPAA ratings and cable network restrictions he doesn’t need to. Marvel and Netflix’s binge-tastic 13 hour introduction to Matt Murdock’s battle for Hell’s Kitchen is everything a comic fan could ask for, and like many Marvel endeavors before it, it’s likely to convert the uninitiated.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY – A Weird, Wild, Trip Into the Stars

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is one of the most entertaining movies I’ve ever seen. In fact, I think THE AVENGERS is maybe the only movie in recent memory that rivals it for sheer “fun factor.” There are certainly higher quality, more intelligently plotted, and better paced adventure movies out there. (Heck, WINTER SOLDIER was pretty silly and it was still a “smarter” film.) But nothing this summer will beat the bang for your popcorn-chomping movie buck than GUARDIANS. Silly plot and pulp stylings may be a “low” goal, but the…

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER – Marvel’s Golden Boy Starts Seeing Shades of Grey

Marvel has upped their game again with CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, and while it never quite reaches giddy fan service highs of THE AVENGERS, it firmly stands above their other films to date in its breadth of accomplishments. Familiarity with these characters certainly helps them keep the plot tighter, but I think Marvel is just getting better and better with each try at figuring out what makes an adventure blockbuster totally kick ass! While Cap’s learned some killer new moves, and The Falcon flies in with some exhilarating aerial…
