Do Critics Think You Should See ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’? — The Pixar Detectives

 

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is about to hit wide release, and the critics are already sharing their take on the Marvel sequel. To keep you unspoiled,  I compiled some of the best reviews of the film and shared the numbers, especially against how they stack up against the first Guardians and other big Marvel films.

It was a great discussion featuring some interesting speculation about the future of the franchise, and we ended things by digging into a “Did you know that?” about the first Guardians of the Galaxy. For example, did you know that Guardians is the second highest-rated film in the MCU?

 

This week’s giveaway was a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 shirt with the Awesome Mix as a graphic. We already have a winner, so be sure to tune in live with us every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. (Pacific) for a chance to win. Simply like Super News on Facebook to stay connected with us for new episodes.

‘Cars 3’ Official Trailer Breakdown — The Pixar Detectives

 

I had to go it alone on this week’s live episode of The Pixar Detectives, and it was a strange episode even by normal standards. Of course, I went through the entirety of the Cars 3 trailer to note the details and story developments we’re starting to see. But I also spent quite a bit of time lamenting what appears to be a very “safe” Pixar film without much of a compelling story, based on what we’ve seen so far.

The show kicked off with some interesting Pixar Theory material, specifically regarding an internal employee theory at Pixar about where the cars in Cars actually come from, and guess what? They’re not a bunch of insects.

This week’s giveaway is an Incredibles t-shirt I’ve worn a few times on the show. We already have a winner, so be sure to tune in live with us every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. (Pacific) for a chance to win. Simply like Super News on Facebook to stay connected with us for new episodes.

Pixar’s Coco doesn’t come out until November, but the Pixar Detectives are ready to dive right in to the first teaser. We even talk a lot about how it might fit into the Pixar Theory, as well as how the movie differs quite a bit from The Book of Life and Kubo and the Two Strings.

Which is Better? ‘Monsters Inc.’ VS ‘Shrek’

 

On the latest Pixar Detectives, Kayla Savage and I tried to somehow choose between Monsters Inc. and Shrek in the most unbiased as possible way. To help, our live audience supplied some awesome arguments and counterarguments in this week’s edition of Which is Better?

Of course, we’re not content to rest on the laurels of the debate in this video. Let us know in the comments below which movie you think deserves the acclaim and why. We spent the entirety of the episode on this topic, so we unfortunately didn’t have any time to cover the latest going on in the world of Pixar. But tune in next week and we’ll do our best to catch up.

‘Lou’ Is The Next Pixar Short Film. Here’s Everything We Know – The Pixar Detectives

Every week, Kayla Savage and I do a live show that’s all about Pixar (and Disney). This week was a “Pixar News Roundup,” because we had a ton of announcements and stories to share about various Emeryville happenings.

Our main topic of conversation was Lou, the next short film by Pixar that will be attached to Cars 3. We shared a ton of good info on what the short is about, how it weirdly connects to Toy Story (sort of), and why we think it’s one of the more original projects Pixar has done in a while.

We also discussed the Annie Awards, the Pixar Art Collection, and more, finishing it all out with a Pixar Trivia Challenge…

Oh, and we gave away an awesome Pixar Valentine’s gift: an “Our Adventures” book based on Up!
