The awesome presence of Chadwick Boseman is definitely missed, but don’t let that get you too down! Marvel produces yet another gem (or Infinity Stone, ha ha) for their catalog. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is an action-packed movie that also explores delicate levels of grief AND delivers on great CGI. The astounding performances from Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, and Lupita Nyong’o will have you saying, “Wakanda Forever”!
Our next First Run movies will be Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and Avatar: The Way of Water!
Ok. Um, ok. Here we go. DC hasn’t quite cracked the Marvel formula for making fun movies. It begs the question, can the most charismatic man on the planet pull off DC’s latest deep cut? Black Adam owes some copyright fines to all those superheroes that you actually like. It’s not great, but it bolsters the Rock’s standing in the Bald Move Badass Hall of Fame…so there’s that!
Keep watch for the next First Run movies, Wakanda Forever and The Fabelmans!
Season 3 is over and while the finale wasn’t exactly to our tastes, it was a pretty good season overall. We’re back for one final podcast to consider your thoughts before we close the book on this season.
Ouch. A lot of people avoided becoming chunky salsa, and we’re actually disappointed. The episode had to pack in A LOT of information to wrap up the season full of psychopaths and potential patricide. Between the smackdowns, The Deep’s stoic murder felt too tame and that’s when we know that The Boys has corrupted our brains. And, um, where did Stan Edgar go?! Next season looks like it might be a return to a similar place as Season 2.
What happens when you cross demented nursery rhymes and Empire Strikes Back? This episode of The Boys. With the members of the show living out different plot lines, it doesn’t quite feel like the boys are back in town. But that doesn’t stop the classic “Boys” antics of beating the living daylights out of each other. We’re seeing great characterization of Soldier Boy and the not so great use of the “Chris Pratt calming right hand” technique and we’re asking you to stop.
It’s a shocking thing to be witness to Herogasm, let me tell you. What’s more shocking still is to be witness to Herogasm yet somehow underwhelmed by its depravity. Even though the event itself disappointed, the episode did not. Join us for the podcast for a discussion of what went wrong and what went oh so right.
The satire is hitting close to home. You may feel bad about yourself, but so long as you don’t sleep with Butcher, there is hope for you yet. We’re sensing some red herrings in the mix, who is telling the truth? And place your bets, who will be a smoky corpse or chunky human salsa by the end of the episode?
Homelander is…just the worst. Everyone seems to have some sort of plan, but not telling other people the plan…maybe that’s why it’ll take a whole five years to execute? Butcher is crunching V24 and gearing up for a fight with an opponent that may not be as super as expected. And if you want Jim and A.Ron to believe a character is dead, you better show the corpse. The tools are present to cripple and de-power Homelander, but is it possible?
We’re excited to welcome The Boys back. Stormfront has been Anakin-ed after Obi-Wan got the high ground. This show has violence, deception, and childhood trauma in spades in only the way The Boys can. Who is a pawn? Who is the controller? And who’s on the chopping block next? Members, grab some chips and a can of chunky human salsa and join us for our Twitch watch party.
The Boys are back. After almost two years, we’re ready for the next season of blood, guts, and fun. Can Karl Urban hold up to his own high standards? We’re hopeful that he will and for many other things. We’ll be covering each episode with podcasts dropping Friday nights. Send in your (non-comic related) feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
