It’s commentary time on Do You Expect Us To Talk? and as we end Phase two of Marvel, It is Becca’s choice and its Guardians of the Galaxy. Join us on our viewing of Marvels first space adventure on a variety of different formats as we talk about anything and everything but the movie itself. This includes old video shops, the sad tale of J R Hartley, more ranting on Bond and the more serious subject of Hollywood perversion and if that damages the work of the artists… Oh and we also talk about the film a little bit.
Do You Expect Us To Talk? continues with Marvel with what was seemingly the biggest gamble yet, Guardians of the Galaxy. Set in another Galaxy, it follows Peter Quill who was abducted by aliens after witnessing his mother’s death from cancer. Now he’s adventurer out to make a quick buck while running from smugglers and just upsetting a dangerous force Roan who seeking power to destroy anything that’s not considered pure. Peter encounters Gamora (adopted daughter of Thanos), Rocket (Racoon), Groot (a tree) and Drax (an alien who takes everything literally), who reluctantly join forces to save the galaxy.
Join Becca, Dave and Chris as we discuss, the new Marvel titles and where it’s placed, why we sounded shit 2 weeks ago, get nostalgic about walkmans and how they pale in comparison today and Dave constructs the greatest joke of all time.
So here we are, at the end of the summer cycle of films and yet here we are with a look back with my fellow co-host of Do You Expect Us to Talk, Dave Bond. In what is the fourth concessive appearance on the show, we ramble through the summer releases and try to remember what we thought about films we saw months ago.
These include movies such as Logan, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man Homecoming, War of the Planet of the Apes, Baby Driver, Alien Covenant, Dunkirk, Detriot, Atomic Blonde and much, much, much more.
Sit back and enjoy this three and a half hour podcast that goes through the highs and lows of the ever increasing list of summer films and possibly go against popular opinion while trying to figure out what the hell goes through Michel Bays head

In this episode we are joined by the lovely man that is Baz Cox or @Baz_Film as he’s known on twitter and he is the first to join us in our slightly new altered format. This is where Me @CinemaTronix and the gang Raghav @raghavmodi Scott @Celluloidical and Ian @i_nesbot (who was absent on recording on this occasion) to talk all about films. We all bring a film we watched recently (old or new) to give things a structure to what is essentially a good old ramble about movies.
This episode we disscuss just what makes a good sequel and what diffrence the year gap between the two. I delve into The new Sin City film, Lucy, What If and Into the Storm. Rag shares his thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy, Baz talks about Two Days, One Night and Scott brings up The Fisher King and Boogie Nights.
In this fine episode of The Inglorious Bastnerds, Scott @Celluloidical , Ian @i_nesbot and myself @CinemaTronix talk about our weekly film watching…. as well as our thoughts on chocolate confectionery.
This is the film podcast that is the most laid back and chilled… Kind of like listening in to table of movie geeks with nothing else better to do. So why not join us.
For this episode we cover more Guardians of the Galaxy, I declare my love for Expendables 3 and my indifference towards The Inbetweeners 2 and Ian talks about his distaste for Chef.
Please subscribe on iTunes and leave a nice review for both the Bastnerds and The Action Junkies as that would help support the podcast and make me feel wonderful
Hey it’s about a week late but here’s a spoiler podcast on Guardians of the Galaxy. Joining me @CinemaTronix is my regular partner in crime Scott @Celluloidical and regular spoiler contributors Amon@awarmann and Chris (Mr Ejizu) @MovieUmpire 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.

This episode we talk Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, we disagree completely on How to Train your Dragon 2, The Rock starring Hercules, The Purge Anarchy and we talk a bit (but not too much as there is a spoiler podcast coming right up) about the film of the moment Guardians of the Galaxy.
As well as talking about more geeky stuff as Comic-Con had just happened and so the debate on how Batman Vs Superman will turn out continues, A little on Transformers 4, The Man with the Iron Fists, the new up and coming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Brett Ratner and I also express my love for Sylvester Stallone and Expendables 3.

“It’s like you said, bitch. We’re the Guardians of the Galaxy”
A fast-paced, kinetic, hilarious and incredible space romp that introduces us to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, a team of misfits who form an uneasy alliance to take on Ronan the Accuser, a Kree radical who targets the Guardians after they interfere with his plans.
I was lucky enough to attend the UK regional premiere of Guardians, seeing a week ahead of release. I’m very thankful for it. Moving at a swift 2 hour running time, director James Gunn delivers a hugely satisfying adventure that has no meat on the bones and only serves to make you enjoy yourself. How it all fits into the grander scheme of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is yet to be seen as the premiere screenings did not include the post-credits sequence (of which Gunn has since admitted has only just wrapped filming).
On first viewing, on sheer fun alone, it eclipses every film that has come before it. It’s refreshing to see a new bunch of characters, especially characters that are so charming and funny. Special mentions are reserved for Rocket Raccoon, voiced exceptionally by Bradley Cooper and his sentient tree companion, Groot voiced and motion-captured by Vin Diesel. Both are hilarious and fantastic in their own right.
As it stands, the Avengers remains the best of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It will be tough to beat Whedon’s mammoth team-up but Guardians of the Galaxy is certainly up there with The Winter Soldier as the best that Marvel has to offer. May Marvel live on because with the close of Phase Two and Age of Ultron just round the corner, it shows no signs of stopping.
