Episode #249: Our SNIKT to Stan I

November 20th, 2018
  • The Wolverine

Welp - We reckon it's bound to happen that Marvel movie talks run long.  It happened before & here we are again.  The good news:  you're gonna hear a lot about Stan Lee's good works over the next 3 weeks.  The bad news:  you'll have to wait to see what the other 2 movies are (though it shouldn't be hard to guess).  Enjoy our 1st of 3 excavations into the Major Man of Marvel that has brought us so much joy, entertainment, and thought-provoking narratives through superhero allegory.  This one ends abruptly as it was SUPPOSED to just be 1 episode..  we opted out of further recording to just push this baby out before the other triplets come.

Notes:  Matt hit a triple-oopsie with Ben Foster, messing up the title for Panic Room - which is also Leto, not Foster, then mixing up Firewall with Hostage.  This is why we take notes so we don't screw up on the fly!  The Total Recall we are cutting down is the remake, not the original.  This IS Rila Fukushima's 1st film!  ooh ooh - Matt also screwed up the shakuhachi flute for the shamisen that the Yoshida Brothers use.  Negative points all around!
