PODCAST: Film Focus – State of the MCU

Good day to you ladies and gents of the internet, I’m here again to share with you an interesting discussion via my podcast, Film Focus. On episode 76, Drew from Drew’s Movie Reviews not only returns to the podcast but takes over hosting duties as we dive back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his topic; The State of the MCU. Since Avengers: Endgame is on the horizon, Drew and I thought it would be fun and interesting to discuss the superhero films from Marvel Studios in a little more detail discussing everything from the best and worst villains to our Top 5 best and worst films to the minimum amount of films you need to see before Endgame comes out.

So join us on a fun-filled discussion and of course know that this is spoiler-heavy, so if you’re not caught up on all of the films it’s best to catch up and then come back.

Also, two things to keep in mind:

  1. This is a spoiler-heavy discussion, and while we don’t cover every film in detail, if you’re not up to date with all of the MCU films then it is best that you skip this or get caught up and come back.
  2. This a fairly long episode at an hour and 47 minutes, but it is definitely a good listen as there was a lot of fun, humour and different perspectives on several of the films.

Check out the episode below:

So what did you think of our discussion? Agree or disagree? I really want to hear your thoughts on this film so drop your thoughts in the comments below and if you have some spare time subscribe to my podcast, Film Focus on Soundcloud and iTunes. Until the next time peeps, laters! 😀

Pros and Cons of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Part 2

Good day to you ladies and gents of the internet, I’m back again to give you part 2 of my Pros and Cons of Marvel Cinematic Universe via my podcast, Film Focus.

Now if you haven’t listened to Part 1, better go back and check that one out because it was pretty good. In the last episode, Drew from Drew’s Movie Reviews and I talked about the pros and in this episode, we discuss the cons, from the use of villains to music to the complications of having a shared universe of films, we cover a fair amount and I hope you enjoy.

P.S. There were a number of mistakes made here and there and some information I forgot to cover while in the episode, but I just wanted to let you know in advance. Forgiveness, please.

Check out the episode below:

Pros and Cons of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Part 1

Good day to you ladies and gents of the internet, I’ve finally returned with another topic of conversation that I hope you will enjoy. So with Captain Marvel fast approaching I thought it would be fun to look back at the Marvel Cinematic Universe and discuss the pros and cons via my podcast, Film Focus.

So this is a subject I’ve been wanting to cover for almost three years now, it was just a case of finding the right timing with when it comes to the ongoing Marvel films and getting out of work to record it. Thankfully I’m not alone, returning guest and good homie, Drew from Drew’s Movie Reviews is along for the ride to help me and I must say he did a fabulous job. 🙂 Now since the recording ended up being a little longer and in-depth than I expected this subject ended up becoming a two-parter. So in this episode, we cover the pros of the MCU from the characters to action scenes to characters and humour, we cover a lot and hopefully, you’ll enjoy listening to our discussion.

Also, two things to keep in mind:

  1. This is a spoiler-heavy discussion, and while we don’t cover every minute detail, if you’re not up to date with all of the MCU films then it is best that you skip this to avoid spoilers.
  2. There are a few mistakes made here and there when it came to naming pronunciations and some other verbal mistakes, so apologies in advance.

Check out the episode below:

So what did you think of our discussion? I really want to hear your thoughts on this film so drop your thoughts in the comments below and if you have some spare time subscribe to my podcast, Film Focus on Soundcloud and iTunes. Be sure to drop by again real soon for part 2, laters! 😀

PODCAST: Best of Film Focus

Good day to you ladies and gents, today I just wanted to talk about my podcast, Film Focus and share with you some of the best episodes I have produced since I started back in 2016. And while I did highlight some of my favourite episodes in my first-anniversary post, I believe I have produced some better work since then and highlight my better work.

So without further ado here is a selection of some of my favourite/best episodes that I’ve done so far from the earliest to the latest:

Triple Review: Split, XXX: Return of Xander Cage & T2 Trainspotting

Even though I highlighted this episode before, it is still one my favourite and most unique episodes. Before this point, I had never thought of doing three mini reviews in one episode, the thought was a little mad to me and I thought it could be a mistake because I wasn’t giving each film a dedicated episode. However, it worked out in my favour because I was able to say enough about each film without going on too long, and it has gone on to be my second most played episode on Soundcloud which is awesome.

The Fate of the Furious Review

Even though I don’t talk about it too much, I did enjoy the last Fast and Furious film, it was fun, not my favourite of the franchise but still worth watching. And while I liked making this episode, for some reason, towards the latter half of the year it just picked up steam and became the most played episode on Soundcloud, its closing in on 500 plays which is insane to me, but hey I am not complaining in the slightest. 😛

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review

I make it no secret that Spider-Man: Homecoming was one of my favourite films of last year and while it wasn’t the best film, it just gave me a great sense of fun, youthful energy and difference from the Sony Spidey films of the past. And I think you can tell in this episode that I really enjoyed my time watching the film and it was a fun one to record.

Theme Songs in Superhero Films

This is the first episode where I truly got to talk about my love for the music that comes with superhero films and why I believe they are important aspects of these films. I enjoyed creating this episode a lot and putting it out there into the world.

2017 Summer Movie Recap

This is one of the most notable episodes of the podcast as it featured my first guest in the form of Drew from Drew’s Movie Reviews, and he was a lovely gentlemen who helped me go through most of the major films from of last summer from films we both saw and some that we saw individually. It is one of the longer episodes but it was hella fun.

Film Scores and Composers

Besides a few other episodes, this was the passion project that I really wanted to make an episode about since I started the podcast. Music in film is SO important to me and while I’m not well-versed in the proper descriptive terms to analyse film scores and composers, I am very passionate and I can tell you how film scores makes me feel and how I believe it enhances a film or works being the confines of the films they belong to.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review

And so Drew thankfully returned to join me for my review of the latest Star Wars films and that was certainly an interesting episode for sure. We both had different opinions about the film, there were elements we agreed on, but there were also a few times where we were on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to how certain elements of the story, characterisation and evolution of the overall SW canon.

2017 Superhero Film Discussion

And finally, we have the episode where I had my second guest on the podcast, Eddie from Jaccendo to help me talk about the superhero films of 2017. With such a variety of films adapted from comic books last year there was a good deal of stuff to talk about, both good and bad, and what I enjoyed about recording this episode was having another person to bounce off of and offer a different opinion from my own. It is my longest episode but it was just a very casual, fun and nerdy conversation of the best kind. 🙂

Well, that is everything that I wanted to share, if you haven’t checked out my podcast yet I would appreciate if you subscribed on Soundcloud or iTunes and if you could sort me some comments or reviews that would be awesome! 🙂 Anyway until next time, laters! 😀
