Guardians of the Galaxy Spoiler Podcast

Hey it’s about a week late but here’s a spoiler podcast on Guardians of the Galaxy. Joining me  is my regular partner in crime Scott  and regular spoiler contributors Amon   and Chris (Mr Ejizu)   and we all gather to talk about Marvel’s latest instalment and what was potentially their biggest gamble turn out to be a smash hit.

Directed by James Gunn and staring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Dave Bautista and Vin Diesel, expanding the Marvel Cinematic Universe to another galaxy was a band of misfits get together to save the universe.

We recorded on my birthday so apologises if sounds of me eating birthday cheesecake come through but what the hey.

Be aware that this is a SPOILER podcast so we ruin the heck out of it, however most of the world has already seen it already anyway but just in case.

We also chat about Comic-Con and me and Amon have a disagreement about Expendables 3 and rank the Marvel films in order of preference.

5 Reasons Why ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Rocked My Proverbial Socks Off ***SPOILER WARNING***

By Scott Allden  

 

ngrty 

Grossing over $90 million dollars on its opening weekend in North America. ‘X-Men: Days Of Future  Past’, the 7th entry in the Fox Studios’ X-Men franchise, based on the Marvel comic book characters/  books of the same name – Has received global acclaim. And in my humble opinion – richly deserved.  Here are 5 reasons that Days Of Future Past absolutely killed it for me….. Killed is good in this  context, by the way.

 

 

 

1. THAT Quicksilver Scene.

Quicksliver

 

Fuck, I really hate saying it that way. ‘THAT’ Quicksilver scene… Ugh. It’s a great moment for not   only the movie itself, but for the cast too who had really supported and pushed out just how good   Evan Peters’ performance as the mutant speedster was. Though we can all say how shite his character   design was (Singer….), it truly was a great demonstration of his abilities, his personality and the use   of pop culture – As Maximoff’s walkman plays out the delightfully apt ‘Time In A Bottle’ by Jim Croce.   Evan Peters’ performance throughout his time in the movie was no less greater. Leaving a lot for Joss   Whedon and Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s depiction of the character to live up to in ‘Avengers: Age Of   Ultron’.

2. Wolverine’s Role

 

                                                                                                                 tyhe

Hugh Jackman – The cornerstone of the X-Men franchise. Appearing as a lead character in 6 of the 7   movies to date. With a cameo in First Class, simply because – because… Yeah.

I’ve always found issue with Logan in these movies. Not only are the movies marred by the sheer   amount of focus that is lavished on the character, alienating others. But also because it almost   becomes detrimental to the overall story. In DOFP, the movie progresses and develops through the   narrative and each character is a driving force for that. Though we closely and prominently follow   events and actions of certain characters – namely Charles (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael   Fassbender) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) – Wolverine is without question the lead. However he   is part of the story, rather than the story being a part of him. His scenes with Charles and Hank (Nick   Hoult) after his initial regression to 1973 are some of my favourite moments in the entire film. There’s   great chemistry between the 3, and this is much more apparent after Logan manages to convince   Charles to get his shit together. I also found the much maligned ‘swap’ between himself and Kitty   (Ellen Page) had proven to be a great move on the part of Singer and Kinberg.

3. The Screenplay

                                                                                                                "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" World Premiere - Outside Arrivals

 

Simple as it seems. And is… Simon Kinberg wrote one damn good movie. Within the X-Men   community, I’d argue that First Class is the superior film based on writing – Perhaps due to the more   traditional, linear plot. With DOFP, there is so much going on that you could easily be stepping into   Last Stand territory. It just felt from watching though, that everything had its place within the story –   it was relevant, cohesive, served purpose and ultimately wasn’t wasteful fanboy nonsense thrown in   for acknowledgement. I’d wholeheartedly recommend a second viewing if this wasn’t your immediate   conclusion.

4. The ‘Reset’

                                                                                                              dfw3

 

Spoilers ahead. Of course, you’ve all seen the movie by now? Before production had completed, director Bryan Singer went on record to say that the beauty of time travel movies is that there is scope to undo, change or get rid of certain elements from the established timeline. In other words – He brought back Cyclops and Jean! So what does that mean for future appearances for people like James Marsden, Famke Janssen and Kelsey Grammar? Well we know now that younger versions of original trilogy characters will appear in the next movie ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’. Though we’ll never know for certain until that time, it was still great to see those characters back  – almost a sigh of relief. Especially after the massive injustice done to Cyclops.

5. Groundwork For The Future

 

                                                                                                             hoult-lawrence-fassbender-mcavoy-comic-con-international-2013-01

Though I was pretty disappointed in the shelving of half the cast of First Class. Carrying over James  McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nick Hoult to DOFP in hindsight is a great   sign of potential things to come. With Charles and Hank seemingly becoming more reliant on each   other from events prior to the movie, and Erik and Mystique being ‘set loose’ essentially to build ‘The   Brotherhood’. We could potentially see some great stories featuring these characters at loggerheads   once again. Because of the dynamics and events that have occurred within the relationships of these 4   – I think we should anticipate for much more emotionally driven, tense and personal X-Men sequels.   Here’s to 2016, and ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ .

Commentary Track : Reservoir Dogs

So it’s been a good long while since we have done one of these but here we go again. Me @CinemaTronix and Scott @Celluloidical are off doing another commentary track for your audio pleasure.

Starting off our Tarantino marathon  with the obvious choice, Reservoir Dogs. Here you’ll find us again watching and not really talking (must learn to chat more) and sharing random thoughts on the foundations of America based on the tipping system.

Any feedback and suggestions would be great and can be sent to ibastnerds@gmail.com and of course you can follow us both on twitter
