Do You Expect Us To Talk? is back to move on to the longest series since Bond. We finally begin to take on the might of Marvel that started its expanded universe ten years ago and still going strong.

Iron Man sees eccentric playboy arms maker Tony Stark, get captured by terrorists using his own weapons. Waking up with a magnet on his chest drawing fragments away from his heart, he’s ordered to make more weapons while being held hostage in a cave, Stark decides to fight back building his own suit to escape.

Join Becca, Chris and Dave as we discuss the rise of Downey Jr career, where Gwyneth Paltrow had been prior to this film, Jon Favreau’s directing style, Jeff Bridges, cheeseburgers, is this film better than its remembered and disappointing last acts.
So its time to update the old feed so here’s another summer review featuring Dave Bond. As the summer period appears to be getting longer and longer we decided to break this review in half with the world cup breaking things up nicely. So we will resume part 2 later this year.
This episode we muse on the Oscars and how the big films are more sporadic these days. We start with Black Panther and continue on with films such Tomb Raider… was it that bad? Pacific Rim Uprising.. did anyone ask for it? Avengers Infinity War… does it really have a cliffhanger? Deadpool 2…. can you have too much of a good thing? And finally we end on the age-old question, how did Han Solo get his name?

It’s podcast time and Scott @Celluloidical Ian @i_nesbot and myself @CinemaTronix got together one evening last week to talk about films and other trivial things like more chocolate bar talk.
When we do talk about films and when e do its all good…. till we offend everyone but hay.
In this episode we talk about The Fault in Our Stars, more Marvel films, The Guest, Good Morning Vietnam, Joan Rivers, Terminator sequels, Blue Ruin, Lets be Cops, Before I Go To Sleep, Wishmaster, Cronos and much more.
Please listen and enjoy and we won’t apologise but please take into account that Ian’s views are his own and not necessarily the views of The Bastnerds as a collective…. even tho he might be right.
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.

“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.
