How About That Trailer? - Avengers: Infinity War




In a year that's given us several (mostly terrific) superhero movies, it would seem unlikely that many wouldn't be ready for one that feels like the ultimate event for these sorts of films. In a different world, I would have been inclined to say Justice League was that event, but my mixed-positive reaction aside, it just didn't work out that way. This is where Avengers: Infinity War comes in. Enjoy the trailer above, and I'll throw in some more thoughts below.

Out Now 308: Coco


This week’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe is the celebration of a lifetime. Aaron is joined by Alan Aguilera, Mark Hobin and David Yeh to talk Disney Pixar’s Coco. This animated feature focused on Mexican culture has already inspired many emotionally-charged thoughts, but the group will do what they can to delve even further into the film and more. Among topics covered, we have a fun round of Know Everybody (2:33), some Out Now Quickies™ (4:46), Trailer Talk for Incredibles 2 (26:12), discussion of the Frozen short film (36:12), the main review (44:29), Out Now Feedback (1:15:45) and Games (1:22:36). We then wrap things up (1:31:51) and end on some Justice League-focused bloopers (1:44:41), following this week’s closeout song.  So now, if you’ve got an hour or so to kill…

Brief Thoughts: Thanksgiving Catchup 2017


I really enjoy putting my reviews together.  I honestly wish I could delve deeper into certain movies, but alas, I get incredibly busy and can sometimes only deal with movies to a briefer extent than I would prefer.  This is why I write these occasional "Brief Thoughts" posts on movies I have seen, as I want to at least offer some of my own perspective on them.  They may not be as polished, but I can at least get my opinions out there. This edition of "Brief Thoughts" features some films I caught up on during the Thanksgiving holiday: The Florida Project, Victoria Abdul, and Menashe.
