PCR #106 - Marvelous Mr. Marvel!

April 30th, 2019

In this episode, Travis and Chris decided to give everyone time to watch & digest Endgame before doing an episode on it, so instead they review that *OTHER* Captain Marvel movie, Shazam! They talk about their reactions to the film, how Zachary Levi did as the titular character, Billy searching for his mother, the similarities to the comics, the things that were kept away from the trailers, ties to the DCEU including that one cameo appearance, and much more.  Also, is Aquaman a TV star in this movie?
Before all that, Travis gives an update on his thoughts on the DC Universe app, if he still recommends it, and the production news involving Swamp Thing. There might even be a review of Justice League Vs Fatal Five hidden somewhere in the ep as well.
They also announce that they will be at this years’ Comicpalooza and will be doing another live recording! They will need some fan participation, so be sure to come out and be a part of the show on May 11th in Houston.

PCR Rewind #90 - To Infinity War and Beyond

April 24th, 2019

***The Endgame is here!  But before you rush out to see how it all ends, let's go back to see how we got here with this epic review episode of Infinity War!  Be sure to see us at Comicpalooza on May 11th as we all discuss Endgame and the MCU live in person!***

In this episode, Travis, Chris, and Jeff (joining us from the Deep in the Horror of Texas podcast) give their thoughts and review on AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR! They get spoiler heavy, so if you’re the one person who hasn’t seen it yet, you may want to do so before listening. They break down the movie scene by scene and discuss the ins and outs of how everything has been building towards this film and what works and what doesn't work. They go off on some tangents here and there, including one talking about what’s going on with Fox and if/when the Fantastic Four will get involved at some point. Which character stood out the most to us? What emotions were we going through as soon as the movie ended? Why is Chris siding with Thanos?!
They also talk about their favorite moments, surprises, and team-ups during the movie, as well as seeing where Thanos ranks as a villain in the MCU (shouldn’t be a surprise). They give their “recommended viewing” Marvel movies to watch before going in to see Infinity War, what’s required and what’s missable. They also try their hand at predicting where Avengers 4 will go from here. They wrap up by doing a rapid fire on some other summer blockbusters coming up and which ones they’re looking forward to the most. This is a good one, so hit the download button and enjoy!

PCR #105 - Highway to Hellboy

April 12th, 2019

In this episode, Travis and X put the spotlight on Guillermo Del Toro and Ron Perlman as they take a look back at the Hellboy movie franchise. They start off by going over how Del Toro got his start in Hollywood, his films leading up to the first Hellboy, the passion and patience he had for getting the movie off the ground, how he helped out Perlman with his early career and the friendship formed from it. They go into detail with the first film, discuss the characters, the actors, the makeup and visuals, and what went wrong with the plot of the film. They even bring up the animated films that came out in between the two films which included the original cast members. You can’t talk about guillermo without talking about Pan’s Labyrinth, so of course they do. They deep dive into the much beloved Hellboy sequel, the Golden Army, and talk about all the wonderful visuals and settings that Del Toro came up with throughout the film, the new characters introduced, the story elements that worked so well, and what was the unforeseen circumstance that caused it to fail at the box office. What were the plans for Hellboy 3 and why didn’t it ever get the greenlight. They wrap up by talking about their thoughts on what they’ve seen so far for the new movie and what they’re anticipations are for it. If you’re a fan of Del Toro, Ron Perlman, or the older Hellboy film franchise, then you don’t want to miss out on this one. Hit the download button and enjoy!
