In an absurdly long podcast, we dive deep into the Ant-Man contraversy, and review Godzilla, Edge of Tomorrow, and X-Men, while also discussing the movie franchise’s complex continuity.
We discuss the new Batsuit design for what we now know is called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; season finales for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Arrow and upcoming tv shows; and review Amazing Spider-Man 2, on which we end up agreeing more than I expect
We recap the results of our Oscar predictions, talk about True Detective and try to predict who’ll be in season 2, and discuss Captain America 2 – as well as talk about the movies we saw at Kino Pavasaris, the local festival.
In this episode, me and Dziugas discuss recent movie news, review American Hustle, investigate why we think Josh Brolin is a good actor, and pick apart the Oscar nominations.
