Greetings, programs, and welcome to the 18th edition of the Awesome Friday Movie Podcast! This week we’re talking about The Humans, an adaptation of a Tony Award-winning play with an all-star cast, and Hawkeye, the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Join us!
The main complaint about Clint Barton’s Hawkeye as a character, at least when it comes to the MCU version, is that he’s boring. I’ve never quite thought that myself, but it’s easy to see where it comes from: he’s a spy that shoots good, and in most of the films, that’s kind of all he is.
What the new Disney+ series Hawkeye proposes is: what if that’s ok?
Jason Reitman, son of famed director Ivan Reitman, has had mixed results lately with his films, but he started his career with four great films in a row. Each of them is unique, and each of them has a human, comedic touch; here are Jason Reitman’s first four films and where to buy, rent, or stream them.
Holy moly, the trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters might be my favourite thing to come out of comic con this year.
Remember when Robert Downey Jr. did smaller, more character centric movies? So do I! And he’s made a new one!
Some people really like to be freaked out or scared by the movies. I am not one of those people. SO here’s a trailer for a film I might not ever see, not only because it’s in a genre that I’m none too fond of but because HOLY SHIT THIS IS A PERFECTLY EXECUTED CREEPY AS HELL TRAILER.
Seriously, this trailer is like someone asked themselves “hey, what can we do to freak the shit out of Matt?”‘
