It’s a first for the podcast this week and we have a double main review. First we discuss Pixar’s latest sequel/first prequel Monsters University, and try to figure out if Pixar are getting lazy, or if everyone else has simply upped their game. After that we talk gigantic bad-ass robots and aliens in our review of Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim.
Also this week, we discuss Sam Mendes’ return to the Bond franchise (Yay!) and Johnny Depp’s return to the Alice in Wonderland franchise (why?!), James has a rant about films from The Asylum, particularly the so-bad-that-it’s-fucking-terrible Sharknado, and the other lads watched some films as well. Guess which forgetful old bastard wrote this.
Join us next week as we review the final film in the Wright/Pegg/Frost Cornetto Trilogy, The World’s End.
It’s a bumper episode of the Failed Critics Podcast this week as we look forward to our most anticipated movies this summer that aren’t called Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, or Star Trek Into Darkness.
As well as looking forward to the summer, we look back on our viewing this week, including Steve’s decent into Box Office Bomb hell with Cutthroat Island. We also pay tribute to Roger Ebert, one of the truly great film critics to have ever lived.
Join us next week for a review of Tom Cruise’s latest sci-fi blockbuster, Oblivion.
