MCU Movie Series
#1 - Guardians of the Galaxy
Join Chris and Drew as they analyze & review (with FULL SPOILERS) Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel's 2014 sci-fi comedy blockbuster movie directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel!
The 10th MCU film was a massive gamble at the time. A talking raccoon? Vin Diesel as a tree with only one line? A sexy Chris Pratt?! We all know it became a huge hit but how does the space opera fare for us?
We get plenty of easter eggs connecting this movie to the upcoming mega-film, Avengers: Infinity War. How does this film about our newest team of lovable heroes rank among Iron Man and Captain America's entries? Do any of the "typical Marvel flaws" plague this new origin story?
A rockin' soundtrack accompanies gorgeous & fresh visuals in a cosmic adventure that gives one of us a couple of Marvel's best moments on film.
And how do we feel about that unique climax?
! Thanos alert !
Join us en route to Vol.2 as we embrace the power of GROOT!

#2 - Captain America: Civil War
Join Chris and Drew as they analyze & review (with FULL SPOILERS) Captain America: Civil War, the 3rd Chris Evans-led film, in Marvel's Cinematic Universe from 2016.
This is basically another Avengers movie! Does Cap get his due amidst all of these characters?
Spider-Man is FINALLY back with Marvel. We all know how we feel about our friendly neighbourhood web-crawler - but does Spidey fit in this 12-movie deep saga?
Anthony and Joe Russo delivered a nearly-perfect (arguably) sequel to The First Avenger with The Winter Solider. Can they top themselves with an even tougher task?
These comic book movie villains...they suck right? Does Civil War finally give us a worthy villain?
Strap in and prepare for a cast of epic proportions as we decide whether this is a war worth having.

#3 - Doctor Strange
Join Chris and Drew as they analyze & review (with FULL SPOILERS) Doctor Strange, the 2016 Marvel film starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
This is a mind-bending trip with fresh, new ideas from Marvel Studios in their 14th MCU film.
An A-list cast populate this spectacle and we decide if these grand actors are used to their potential or not.
We discuss the things we want in the eventual sequel.
And there's just something we still can't get away from with comic book films...
Pop the earbuds in and join us, on the astral plane, to decide if Marvel truly has another bona-fide winner on their hands.

#4 - Captain Marvel
Join Chris as he analyzes & reviews Captain Marvel, the 2019 Marvel action/comedy movie, starring Brie Larson & directed by Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck.
Carol Danvers becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.
This is her big introduction before she kicks Thanos' butt in Avengers: Endgame!
Does the first (and long-overdue) woman-led MCU film satisfy as yet another origin story? How many times does Samuel L. Jackson say motherf***er? How many 90s references are there? What's the villain situation? Just how powerful is Carol Danvers?
Most importantly, how awesome is Goose the cat?
