Benny Hill helps Black Panther chase Winter Soldier

Ep 028 We Declaw Black Panther

We declaw the Black Panther movie.

At the expense of causing fur to fly, Bill and Chad smell something pretty bad in the kitty litter as they do an extensive break-down of the 2018 Black Panther movie from Marvel. Try not to get scratched as you listen! As usual, we examine lots of details of the movie to cover all the bases with our assessment of it, so THERE BE SPOILERS!

Show Notes:

3:00 – We confront the white colonizer elephant in the room.
6:25 – Shortchanging Wakanda
10:55 – Missing impressive set-pieces
16:53 – No buttons at the end of any scene.
22:40 – Talk of not-so-special effects.
26:52 – Female empowerment.
30:45 – The Boko Haram scene.
33:21 – White boys.
38:35 – Weak motivations.
42:23 – Summing up.

Thanks for listening!

Ep 027 Wakanda is Wack in the Black Panther trailer

Chad and Bill examine the trailer for Marvel’s Black Panther, and find it wanting. Bill also ponders the Amazonian (or not) nature of Wonder Woman Gal Gadot, we dwell on next year’s Captain Marvel, and other pressing topics.

Show Notes:

00:00 – Intro, and we go right into our breakdown of the Black Panther trailer.

15:25 – The beginning of our thoughts on leaked set pictures of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, as well as Chad sets up some comic book context for the character.

16:02 – Is Gal Gadot tall enough to be Wonder Woman?

23:40 – Chad gives a run-down on Fox’s post-apocolyptic sit-com The Last Man on Earth.

26:10 – More Captain Marvel talk.

30:30 – We ponder what terrible thing Mark Hamill must have done to Rian Johnson to make the director force him to milk a sea cow in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

33:46 – What in the Hell is cryptocurrency?

36:55 – After what Donald Trump would no doubt describe as a “fake sign-off”, we really do sign off.

Thanks for listening!
