PCR #56 - X-Men: Apocalypse Review!

June 23rd, 2016

In this episode, Travis and (Professor) Xavier are back to review X-Men: Apocalypse!  This does contain SPOILERS so if you haven’t seen it yet, fair warning!  We take a look at how this movie pulls from the source material (sorta), and if it works on the cinematic side of things.  This movie brought in a slew of new/returning characters such as Psylocke, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Nightcrawler, and of course Apocalypse himself.  Is the character of Apocalypse a thankless role?  Why were people laughing?  Just what are his powers and how does he get them?  As cool as the Wolverine scene was, something took us out of the moment.  Everyone seemed to love Quicksilver again, but how could he have been better?  What did they rip-off from a DC TV show?  This was an interesting movie, so we had lots to talk about!  Check it out and enjoy!

PCR #55 - Marvel v DC: Dawn of War

June 6th, 2016

In this episode, Travis & X give their take on the two big comic book films of 2016 that’s pitting hero against hero and see which one is better, DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War! (Beware of SPOILERS!)
 
For BvS, they hit on all the highs & lows of the film such as Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor (ugh!), mothers named Martha, a Justice League setup with a nightmare sequence and superhero cameos, and of course the ending of the film.

For Civil War, they obviously talk about the much anticipated Marvel Studios debut of Spider-Man!  They also cover other hits of the film like Black Panther’s debut, Ant-Man’s big surprise, making Hawkeye purposeful, Vision & Scarlet Witch, and of course all the action scenes.  Travis had some reservations about the villain, but X makes some sense out of it for him.  

Whose side are you on?  Team Cap or Team Tony?  Team DC or Team Marvel?  Tell us what you thought of the films!  Visit us on our Facebook page at facebook.com/popculturerewind, send us a tweet @popculturerwnd, or shoot us an email at [email protected]!  Catch up on all of our past episodes at popculturerewind.com, or by subscribing to us on iTunes, Stitcher, or Google Play Music!
