X-Men: Days of Future Past

In this episode Wayne, Justin and Darkest-Timeline Justin review the latest #X-men film, #DaysOfFuturePast, directed by #BryanSinger, who returns to the series after a ten year absence, starring #HughJackman, #MichaelFassbender, #JamesMcavoy, #JenniferLawrence, #IanMckellan, #PeterDinklage, #NicolasHoult and #PatrickStewart. Throughout the discussion we look at the X-men film franchise and how this film surprisingly feels like a real film with actual characters. We also look at the time travel dynamics in comparison to other time travel stories, an explanation of why the #StarTrek films needed a reboot and X-men didn't, why #ProfessorX still can't walk after coming back from the dead and how Bryan Singer may have pulled off the greatest retcon in film history.

John Favreau's Chef

In this mini episode Wayne and Michelle discuss #Chef, written, directed and starring #JohnFavreau, co-starring #JohnLeguizamo, #DustinHoffman, #ScarlettJohansson, #SofiaVergara, #RobertDowneyJnr, #AmySedaris and #OliverPlatt. This is one of those films that may slip below the radar during the Blockbuster film season. However, we felt that this was one of the more honest and rereshing American films in some time. Through this twenty minute episode we discuss John Favreau's career, #foodporn and how bizarre a conversation with #RobertDowneyJnr. may be.

The Amazing Spider-man Sequel  (A.K.A. ASS)

One of our earliest episodes, where Darkest Timeline Justin and Wayne review The #AmazingSpider-man 2: #RiseofElectro and discuss what could very well be the worst hollywood tentpole film in a very long time. 

Darkest Timeline Justin says, #AmazingSpider-man Sequel (#ASS) Is a real stamina test. "At 2 and a half hours it felt like my eyes were going to drop out." On the upside #Spiderman's costume is much improved and the scenes of him flying through the streets are the best they've ever been. That said, the movie itself is a disjointed mess mostly interested in setting up future installments and spin offs rather than telling an actual story. #PeterParker (#AndrewGarfield) as a hero is still a character that is hard to connect with. The love story between him and #GwenStacey (#EmmaStone) is tiresome and after a while you just sort of try to tune it out or use it to relax your eyes. Character behaviour is driven by what the story needs rather than by their own personality and needs. The fight scenes are stunning but it does suffer from it being CGI smackdown between two characters. So what is the story about? Well nothing really there isnt one, it's just a garbled mess. 3/10

Wayne on the other hand thought ASS was so bad that he gave it a deficit score of -2/10. Because 0 wasn't low enough. If you want to hear why listen to the episode. If you don't agree you can twittify us @SGSpod or comment on our facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/soylentgreenscreenpodcast
