Out Now with Aaron and Abe – Episode 13: X-Men: First Class

This week on Out Now with Aaron and Abe, the duo decides to bring in another new guest to help them review the newest film in the X-Men film franchise:  X-Men:First Class.  That guest is the wonderful Susan Moua, who aids the boys in a discussion of the film along with other topics following the regular format of the show.  As always, They first talk about some new trailers (Rise of the Planet of the Apes and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), followed by the film review.  Next up is talk of box office results, a lengthy retro review segment, mostly devoted to the previous X-Men film, and then it is game time, as Aaron, Abe, and Susan have more fun with the Character Actor Guessing game and another edition of Cast This.  As always, feel free to e-mail the podcast at outnow.aaronabe@gmail.com and, especially, “like” our Facebook page at facebook.com/outnowpodcast.  In a few weeks listeners will be able to enjoy some new developments in the podcast, but for now enjoy the show’s slow rise from amateur status, take joy in the music selections that bookend the show, and if you have an hour to kill…

  1. New title for this pod*cast: Aaron and Abe go on a Raging Fassbender. Oh and nice ending music to the pod*cast! After I saw the movie I was hoping there would be a soundtrack.

    It seemed that a shared concern was that regarding the writing and dialogue. Because I believe in giving folk the benefit of the doubt, I just assumed that clunky dialogue would be one of the harder things to iron out in a comic book movie--or I am wrong and converting bubble captions into organic dialogue is not a challenge worth addressing.

    I thought the movie was awesome. I agree that the scene in which the mutants were getting their identities, ones that we’re accustomed to knowing them by, was approached borderline disrespectful to the invested viewer. From a corporate standpoint, the more time they spend on that, the less time there would be left for special effects and action to sell the public.

    I am a big fan of reboots! If you didn’t get it right the first time, that doesn’t mean you must continue to build on the sand. Great pod*cast fellas.


  2. Appreciate the thoughts very much. Thank you.
