This weekend was the cultural event of the century, the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. To prepare for it, Blake and Erin spent a week watching and reviewing the first six Star Wars movies one-by-one, before finally finishing up with a massive spoiler-rich analysis of The Force Awakens. (Don’t worry, the spoilers don’t come until after they’ve discussed the other six movies.) In this extra-sized episode, they talk about everything they love — and hate — about the seven movies of the Star Wars saga.
And what’s cool this week? While Erin is still too enraptured by Star Wars to think of another recommendation, Blake is there to talk about the first half-season of CBS’s Supergirl and the first issue of IDW’s Mickey and Donald Christmas Parade.
After some very busy weeks for our boys, the Showcase crew finally gets together to see Thor: The Dark World, give a spoiler-free review of the movie, and discuss its place in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!
And what’s cool this week? Jason is enjoying season two of Revolution, while a jury duty-bound Blake hasn’t had time for anything but the six-minute short “The Night of the Doctor,” the prequel to next week’s Doctor Who 50th anniversary special.
It’s time for another At the Movies bonus podcast! Blake, Kenny, Daniel and Jason get together to watch Marvel Studios’ Thor. How did it shape up in the pantheon of comic book movies? How did it hold up compared to the comic? What, exactly, constitutes a spoiler, Kenny? Huh? (People wanting to remain spoiler-free, fear not: we bleeped out Kenny’s blunder.) The summer movie season is upon us, and hopefully this will just be the first of a season of At the Movies Mini-Podcasts!
