This week on The Collider Podcast, Matt and Adam talk about Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland. While Matt didn’t much care for the movie, Adam enjoyed parts of it, and they discuss the film’s goals, its themes, how Bird and co-writer Damon Lindelof tried to handle the movie in post-production, and much more. They also discuss how this movie relates to filmmakers' past work and their careers going forward.
Matt, Adam, and Perri talk about ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’. Although we briefly touch on ‘Pitch Perfect 2's box office success, our primary conversation focuses on ‘Mad Max’, specifically addressing the few criticisms we could find because otherwise it would be a completely one-sided conversation even though we agree that ‘Fury Road’ is fantastic. As always, we finish up with our recommendations.
This week on The Collider Podcast, Matt and Adam talk about Alex Garland’s excellent sci-fi film, "Ex Machina". The conversation includes why the film works so well, the myriad of themes it raises, how Garland effectively draws in the audience, the tremendous performances, how the picture has become a hit at the box office, and much more. As always, we finish up with our recommendations.
Matt and Adam have a long, in-depth discussion about the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its latest movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron. We go through every Marvel movie, talk about how the universe has developed over time, its strengths and weaknesses, what the future holds for the MCU, and much more. As always, we finish up with our recommendations.
This week on The Collider Podcast, Adam and I look ahead at the 2015 summer movie season. It should be noted that this episode pretty much only covers wide releases, although we’ll be doing another episode in the future that look at the summer indies. However, the big summer movies gave us more than enough to talk about as we touch on Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World, Inside Out, and many more.
