It looks like you found your way to Entertainment for the Rest of Us, the site where we review everything leisurely. This week the cast and crew tries something a little different. For those of you who are comic book fans this is old news. However for those EftRoU fans that are more of a movie watcher or TV viewer this episode is going to make you think. We discuss the Marvel Civil War, some ComicCon stuff and the movie Captain America.
Points of interest:
So if you didn’t know this big festival of sorts that takes place every year in San Diego called ComicCon. Mike (EatSleepGeek.com) goes every year. So the crew thought we would ask him a few questions about his trip. It sounds much different from the one you hear about on Twitter, Facebook and news reports. On a side note EatSleepGeek.com has a new writer (Rob R.), check out his guide to summer conferences.
During the catchall segment most of the crew discusses a classic, okay I don’t know if it is classic, story about the Marvel Universe. In this series of comic books we find superhero against superhero, as the government works to get handle on all the super humans out their. It ends up dividing the Marvel Universe and you will want to pick sides. So sit back and enjoy as we discuss this great story.
By the way, please support the arts by going out and buying the trade back of this story. Search around for your local comic book shop and be sure to ask the clerk about the story. See what they think and compare it to what we think. Also feel free to let us know what your thoughts by leaving us comment.
Sticking with the comic book theme, this week’s feature flick is Captain America: The First Avenger. For those non-comic book readers this movie is about a young man who wants to serve his country and deemed unfit. Finally Steve Rogers gets to volunteer for a secret project that turns him into Captain America. This movie stars; Chris Evans (as Captain America), Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Hugo Weaving and Stanley Tucci. Let me tell you, this is a must see film in the theaters, but don’t just take my word for it. Listen in to the crew and see what they think. Also be sure to check out the review Jess wrote.
Thanks again for stopping by. Towards the end of the show you hear a reference to our review of Thor and how Mike is concerned about the acting prowess of some starts compare to the others in the upcoming Avengers movie. After you listen to this episode be sure to go back and listen to our discussion for Thor.
Thanks again for stopping by, we really do appreciate you taking the time to listen. Until next time…
