In this week’s episode of Now Conspiring, we’re joined by Reid Jones as we have a spoilery discussion about Marvel’s latest Avengers-related assembly. If you want to avoid spoilers, stop listening at the 8:25 mark of the podcast and then pick it up again at 34:44.

But Age of Ultron isn’t all we’re talking about this week. We also cover the new Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts film, While We’re Young for a quick review. We also cover the latest movie news, including the recent 21 Jump Street crossover, the AMC Star Wars marathon, and more.

Later in the show, we try to decide what the best trailer is for the worst movie. Don’t forget to add your suggestion to the comments!

Question of the Week: Who is your favorite Avenger?

By the way, our Song of the Week this week is “Bad Dream” by The Mowgli’s. Be sure to check out their new album (same name as the song), which is in stores now.

Other music you heard in this episode:

  • “Something Personal” – Bright and Early
  • “Irreplaceable” – Beyoncé

Why Do Movie Trailers Suck?

movie trailers suck

We’ve all watched that trailer. It gives away the whole movie, including key plot twists. Sometimes you watch a trailer that isn’t even close to what you get in the real movie (we’re looking at you Frozen and Kangaroo Jack).

And sometimes, a movie trailer is just plain bad, even though the movie itself is quite good. Well this week on the Now Conspiring Podcast, Maria and I delve into what makes our trailers, well trailers. Is it money? Greed? Power? Greedy power? We discuss.

Later in the show, we quickly review PaddingtonAmerican Sniper, and Blackhat. And we also cover this week’s movie news, including our thoughts on the Oscars, the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, and more.

Stick around for our Netflix Recommendation of the Week, and as always, we finish the show with new Movie Releases coming this weekend.

Movieo Lets You Discover the Best Movies For Free – Without Ads


About | Movieo:

This is a place for discovering movies. Made by a couple of friends for fun – as a side project.

We love movies but finding new ones is usually a hassle. We searched for a nicely designed and simple interface for movie browsing but we didn’t find one. So we made one ourselves.

There’s no ads, no annoying popups, no catch – it’s free. We’ll keep improving it as time passes. For now we’d appreciate your feedback. Criticism and praise are both welcome.

This website is seriously worth your time. At its base level, it offers you a chance to stream excellent movie trailers without popups and ads by hosting from a YouTube channel.

But it also features a search function that lets you find new movies that you’ll like, complete with review scores that hover with the description. Fun idea.

Check it out and see for yourself: Movieo
