We do another "AMA" and talk desert island movies, favorite books, and marriage challenges
This is our one-hundrenth episode! We are so excited to bring you this episode, not only because our listeners are fantastic and made this possible, but because we also get to answer your questions.
This is our second "Ask Me Anything" session. You submitted the questions and we answered. We talk about many things including how life has changed now that we're parents, what our "nerd-cation" would be, and what challenges our marriage has faced.
We start the episode with our reactions to Arrested Development Season 5 and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 4.
Our review of Disney owned Lucasfilm's second standalone "Solo: A Star Wars Story"
After Disney bought Lucasfilm, everyone was scared that we were going to get some watered down versions of that galaxy far far away. That didn't happen right away, we got divisive films but definitely watered down. Once Rogue One dropped, people saw the callbacks as just that, callbacks. A love letter to the fans saying "we paid attention". After Solo came about and there was even more callbacks as well as connectivity, the Disney influence was made clear with a Marvel model of connectivity. After a disappointing box office weekend, people are speculating if it was because of the fan rage after The Last Jedi or because this is a story that nobody asked for.
Was this our First Avenger or our Ant-Man? Listen to find out what we think.
The Merc with a Mouth is back along with our review of Deadpool 2
We loved the first Deadpool and so we were pretty sure that we were going to enjoy the sequel. Even though it took me (Tristan) a second watch to fully get on board, that was the case with this one. Cable was announced to be in the sequel even before the first film was over. Josh Brolin has been working hard this year with Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and Sicario 2 coming out later this year. He brings some gravitas to the Deadpool universe and while interesting, might be a little misplaced.
If you like the first one then you'll love this one. If you didn't get onboard with Deadpool from the get-go, this won't change your mind.
We start the show talking about our first CMX theater experience and how Deadpool was the best testing ground.
Riding High on Infinity War, We Talk Spoilers and the People Who Spoil
We enjoyed Infinity War so much that we've been feeling a Marvel high even a week afterward. We did a review last week so we won't be doing that again but it did get us thinking about spoilers. Thankfully, neither one of us got spoiled with Avengers but we know a lot of people who did.
What is it about people who do this on purpose? Also, where is the line? Are people too sensitive? Is it worse with our over-connected world? Listen as we swap stories and theories.
What was the worst spoiler you ever heard?
Ten years of Marvel has lead us to Avengers: Infinity War

We saw it opening night and was on the edge of our seats the entire time. The opening of the show is spoiler free and then halfway through the episode, we hit spoiler territory. You will be warned so feel free to listen even if you haven't seen the film.
