CM Podcast 206 – Avengers Endgame Review

Avengers Infinity War Part 1 summary – Thanos had combined the Infinity Stones to make the Infinity Gauntlet and unleashed his sinister plan: wipe out half the population of the Universe.

This movie was really good.

Avengers Endgame – The movie starts out shortly after the events of Infinity War as Iron Man, Captain America and the other Avengers try to pick up the pieces of the biggest defeat they have ever encountered.

This movie was pretty good.

They try to right the wrongs that Thanos created but all their efforts lead to dead ends. Until Scott Lang AKA Ant-Man shows up with a plan so crazy it just might work!

***SPOILER ALERT!!***

Jon and I go over our thoughts on Avengers Endgame in the podcast. We don’t hold back so there are many spoilers in this review/critique of the movie. The ‘No Spoilers’ Embargo is over! We are giving everyone fair warning!

I can tell you that Jon and I both like this movie but it could have been better. We talk about plot points including a gigantic plot hole that really can’t be forgiven, but it’s not all bad though. This movie had several fun and exciting moments that make it worth recommending.

We also go over what we would have done differently to make this a better movie and what we are hoping for in future Avengers movie.

The movie is 3 hours long so we don’t cover absolutely everything that happens in this podcast. We stick to just the main story arc. There are still plenty of surprise for you in the movie.

Also, if you enjoyed this review, be sure the check out our take on Avengers Infinity War Part 1 which I am linking here:

CM Podcast 154 – Avengers Infinity War

You know summer is in the air when the blockbuster movies start to make their way to the movie theater and there is no bigger summer movie than Avengers Infinity War!

AIW

This is a big movie, with a big story and even bigger cast.  I can say without any hype, there has not been a movie so many years in the making with a bigger pay off than this.  You may think the Star Wars movies have an epic storyline – Avengers Infinity War’s story is even bigger!  The stakes are huge and the heroes are desperate to “save the day”.

Now, I will not give any plot points away in this post but I can guarantee you that there are plenty of spoilers regarding the movie in our podcast.

AIW02

So this is your first and last spoiler warning – we talk about the movie and go over critical plot points.

If you have not seen the movie and don’t want anything spoiled – DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST YET!!

Go see the movie (which we advise you to do) then come back and hit play on the podcast.

Your Comics Pal.

CM Podcast 151 – Infinity Gauntlet

Remember that time when Thanos killed half the universe?  You don’t?  C’mon, you memeber!  He got that bedazzled glove and just waved his hand and killed half the universe including several Marvel superheroes like Hawkeye and Sersi.  Is it coming back to you now?  That’s right!  We’re talking about The Infinity Gauntlet miniseries that came out in 1991.

The Infinity Gauntlet was written by Jim Starlin and it had artwork from George Perez and Ron Lim. 

In the podcast, we give a little history on the characters: Thanos and Adam Warlock and we talk about how the idea for the Infinity Gauntlet miniseries came about.  We then talk about the story and what we hope to see the the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movie.

CM Podcast 103 – Guardians of the Galaxy

Comics Misremembered Podcast 103

The 1st Guardians of the Galaxy movie came out in 2013. The sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 just came out on 5/5/2017.  Both movies were very successful so you are pretty familiar with…

Guardians of the Galaxy movie from left to right: Rocket, Groot, Gamora, Nebula, Drax and Star-Lord.

But are you familiar with the Guardians that came out in the comics in 2008?

Or the original Guardians that came out in 1969?

We are celebrating our 2nd year anniversary (5/15/2015) this week and we do it by giving you a brief history on who are the comic versions of the Guardians from 1969 and 2008.  We also never had a chance to review the 1st Guardians movie so this is a double review of Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.  Sit back and relax and let the non-sense flow over you.

CM Podcast 97 – New Comic Review

Comics Misremembered Podcast 97

Hello once again.

Last week we meant to review 3 comics but we ran a little long so we only got in 2 books.  Jon still wanted to review the 3rd book:

The Unworthy Thor (click here to buy digitally)

Writer Jason Arron

Artist Olivier Coipel

Unworthy_thor01

I told him that a review of the 5 issues that are out would not be enough for a podcast.  My idea was to Super-Size it and talk about the recent history of Thor prior to becoming unworthy.

I do a quick historical overview of Thor: God of Thunder which ran for 25 issues between 2012 – 2015ish before becoming The Mighty Thor.

Written by Jason Arron

This series explains some of the questions that you may have with The Unworthy Thor that are not explained in the series.  In fact, Unworthy Thor might as well be called Thor: God of Thunder # 26 because it is so closely linked.

We hope you enjoy the podcast and start reading the very excellent Unworthy Thor.

Your comics pal,

Jim
