Chappie Review, New Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer, Guardians of the Galaxy Theory

chappie review

Hey conspirers, this week things had to go a little differently for the show. Due to our busy schedules, the podcast crew was unable to get together, so I’ll be flying solo for today’s short, but hopefully sweet, episode.

You’ll notice right away the audio is a little awkward toward the beginning. Apologies…I wasn’t able to use a microphone, and other excuses happened (but it gets better).

As the title implies, I delve into a review for Chappie that tries to explain the bizarre polarization coming from critics for the movie. I have my own theories about that, so hopefully you can get the big picture. I also share my thoughts on the newest Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer you can view here in case you haven’t seen it yet for some weird reason.

I also talk about my recent Guardians of the Galaxy theory about how “Awesome Mix” tells a hidden story about Peter Quill’s dad. I don’t really talk about the theory as much as I talk about the unexpected reaction I got from it. Take from it what you will, I suppose.

Song of the Week: “Mine” by Phoebe Taylor. Her music is as cool as her hair.

Question of the Week: Do you think it’s smart for D.C. to throw all of their big characters at us so quickly with Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice?

  1. Nice job holding down the fort Jon! I think D.C. needs to start smaller to be honest. They’re trying too hard, too fast. Great review!

  2. I read your Guardians of the Galaxy theory and I have to say, I didn’t think the Jason of Spartax thing was as big a deal as half the internet tried to make it out to be. This was cool, by the way! It was weird without Adonis and Maria, but I would totally listen to you just do an occasional podcast once in a while where you just lay it all out.

    • His voice is soothing isn’t it? Haha, sorry for not being able to make it for this one, but (unsurprisingly) you handled it Han Solo perfectly Jon!

  3. Great podcast, I think you did a good job holding it on your own.

    Don’t stress over the people that didn’t like your GOG theory, more people loved it, so I wouldn’t worry about the haters :).

    As for BvS… I can’t really say anything yet, since the movie doesn’t come out until 2016; it could turn out awesome, but it could also be terrible. I personally think it’s a little risky to throw so many big characters at us in one movie, but as long as they don’t make one character take too much of the spotlight over the others and make it look like they’re trying to copy MARVEL, it should be fine… at least, I hope.
