The Weekly Stuff Podcast #110 - Summer Movie Catch-up: Mad Max, Avengers, Jurassic World & More!
It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.
Given our recent, unexpected hiatus, we wound up missing the releases of several major summer movies we meant to cover in depth. So while this is coming a little later than planned, we have recorded a ‘summer movie catch-up’ episode, in which we share our thoughts on all the films we have been meaning to talk about.
I give some quick thoughts on Spy and Jurassic World – one of which I find to be perhaps the most overrated film I’ve seen in years – before Sean and I launch into longer, more in-depth discussions of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Mad Max: Fury Road, which oddly works as an interesting compare/contrast study in different forms of modern action spectacle.
(Note: This episode was recorded last week, before the release of Pixar’s Inside Out. I haven’t had the chance to review the film yet, but I think it is an outright masterpiece – my favorite Pixar film ever, perhaps – and I look forward to discussing it on next week’s show. It isn’t talked about here, but that doesn’t mean we plan on ignoring it).
