Widescreen Warrior Podcast #2 – Bring the Thunder

Widescreen Warrior Podcast #2 - Bring the Thunder
This episode brings in our reviews of Ender’s Game as well as some ruminations of how this release may or may not seque into a full franchise, Marvel’s latest Avengers follow up Thor: The Dark World and how it stacks up against the first film, and Oscar contender 12 Years a Slave. We also give some insights toward a few other releases we’re hoping to catch up on or see in the... 

What to Expect from an Avengers Sequel

What to Expect from an Avengers Sequel
With a record-breaking $200 million opening weekend, I think we can all agree that there will be a sequel to The Avengers. Even better: most people I know want a sequel to the super hero team-up. It feels germane to the film for there to be a second one, instead of another chapter that is simply tacked on. We have a long road to travel before we get to a second Avengers film, but we can pontificate... 

The Avengers [Review]

The Avengers [Review]
Ever since the success of Iron Man in 2008, the Marvel Universe movies have been building to a point: The Avengers. With each individual character movie finding massive success, the idea of combining the characters into a team became even more of an enigma: how do you take four characters who have triumphed in their own pictures (as well as two supporting players) and combine them into an ensemble... 

The Avengers 3D [Review]

The Avengers 3D [Review]
Marvel’s The Avengers is extraordinary, a monumental accomplishment of super heroic proportions. Director Joss Whedon has done the impossible, bringing together four independent franchises (Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America) into a single cohesive whole. The Avengers is a better film with the heroes together than any single film with the each hero standing alone. It is quite a remarkable... 

Weekly Blend #302 – Summer Season Assemble!

Weekly Blend #302 - Summer Season Assemble!
We’re back after a few weeks’ absence. With our return we talk about The Raven and The Cabin in the Woods, one of which is the most awesome movie several of us have seen in theaters in quite a while (hint: it doesn’t have John Cusack in it). After our reviews we start laying out the summer with a thumbs up/thumbs down for the upcoming potential blockbusters. What are we most interested... 

Trailer Park: The Avengers

Summer’s 8 months away, but already the Mighty Marvel Movie Machine is churning, releasing a full two-minute trailer for The Ultimates…I mean, The Avengers…sorry, m’comic bookiness reared its head there for sec. What we’re treated to is a snippet of the team’s (practically non-existent) chemistry, and I don’t mean on screen, I mean as far the in-story team dynamic goes. And that makes... 

Ranking the Avengers Lead-in Movies

An interesting question came up as we were recording this week’s podcast. Now that all of the pre-Avenger movies are out – that is, the individual films that serve as feeder movies for Marvel’s big shin-dig next summer, how would we rank them? It became a quick point of discussion during the show that I thought I would expand on here. For the record, the pre-Avenger foundation movies are:... 

Box Office Results: The Wolf Pack of Hangover Beats Kung Fu Panda

Part of looking at movies does involve the business side of show business. We try to have a little fun with it, as each week Tim makes his predictions as to how movies will perform at the Box Office. Then, on Sundays, we look at how Tim’s predictions fared. Earlier this week Tim made his predictions as sequel went up against sequel. Tim sided with Kung Fu Panda, figuring the wide appeal would overcome...

Now we’re putting them down in text just to see how good Tim’s track record winds up. Tune in each week as we compare Tim’s predictions against the actual numbers from the box office weekend, as Tim takes on the Box... 

Box Office Results: Pirates Doesn’t Break $100 Million

Part of looking at movies does involve the business side of show business. We try to have a little fun with it, as each week Tim makes his predictions as to how movies will perform at the Box Office. Then, on Sundays, we look at how Tim’s predictions fared. Earlier this week Tim made his predictions, anticipating the new Pirates movie to break the $100 million mark. With On Stranger Tides being the...
