Remember When – Episode 63
Days of Star Wars Past
We’ve unofficially dubbed May as “The Month of Marvel” and to celebrate, we have a brand new podcast. Don’t call it a regular release, or you might jinx us!
Parris and Jay spend a few minutes catching up. We talk about the recent Episode VII announcements, and Parris cycles back on the recently rebooted Robocop.
Godzilla’s recent arrival in theaters piqued Parris’ curiousity and we talk about the latest take on a classic franchise. Thankfully, it’s nowhere near as bad as the Matthew Broderick era.
Then we hit the meat & potatoes of our show: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past. After a release like Captain America: The Winter Solder, Sony and Fox have a lot of competition in the Marvel universe. And we’re here to tell you why Spidey is already in need of another reboot, and why we liked Days of Future Past.
But that’s not all! Parris actually managed to watch the entirety of GI Joe: Retaliation. We can only assume that some kind of hypnosis was in effect because WOW… that movie is a train wreck. And speaking of train wrecks, Transformers 4 is looking like it’s going to live up to the standards of Transformers 3! Which is to say, the trailers look terrible. I mean really, Optimus Prime riding Grimlock? Yeesh.
Lastly, we wrap up with some talk on TV’s worst year in a long time, and a look back at Mad Men.
And if you’re waiting for a return to “Great Movies Jay Has Never Seen”, listen in at the end! We announce the movie selection for our next episode.
Our show exists because of YOU, our listeners! Your positive comments, encouraging feedback, and multiple email messages asking if we’re dead are what help keep the show going.
