CM Podcast 226 – X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019)

A few months back, Jon and I decided not to see the X-Men: Dark Phoenix movie because we did not hear good things about it.

Instead, we did a review on the original Dark Phoenix Saga comic story and it was so epic that we had to break it down into 2 parts. Here are the links to those podcasts:

We had originally planned to do a comic review this week but I had recently been to my local departments store and saw that X-Men: Dark Phoenix recently came out on Blu Ray and 4K Hi Def Disc (just like comics, I like my movie’s physical, not digital). So on a whim, I picked up a copy of the movie and asked Jon if he’s like to watch it and use it as the topic of discussion for this week’s podcast.

Guess what? He decided it was a great idea, so we watched it. We both decided to go in with low expectations and see what kind of story were we going to get. Well, the movie is a bit of a mixed bag. We like some parts and hated other parts. Overall, we both agree it was ‘okay’.

Listen to the podcast for our full review and why we recommend watching this movie depending on you level of love for the source material.

Listen to the Dark Phoenix Saga podcasts to find out why this epic story will probably never be filmed correctly.

CM Podcast 88 – Wanted

Time to go back to the past again.  This time, we will be reviewing the comic and movie by the same name: Wanted.

The comic was written by Mark Millar with art by J.G. Jones and it came out in 20003.  The movie came out 5 years later on  06.27.08.

Jon and I do a quick recap of the movie and then opine on what we thought of it compared to the comic miniseries.

You will also learn of the “Does it have a loom in it?” question that you can ask on judging the quality of a movie.

Great fun was had recording this one.

Your Comics Pal,

Jim
