MTR Network (tv & film)

Our full, spoiler-free, Star Wars: The Last Jedi review is here! We break down what we loved about this movie and why it just might be our favorite Star Wars film. There's a lot of story in this film and that's a good thing. It doesn't get bogged down and while it clocks in at 2 1/2 hours and feels like it, it doesn't feel too long. The Last Jedi is a visual masterpiece and you're definitely going to want to see this in a real IMAX theater to fully appreciate it. 

Listen to our full review as we go into more details (spoiler-free of course) about why this film worked. 

Our spoiler review will come out next week for Premium members. We don't want people to have the movie spoiled for them so make sure you avoid all spoilers until you see this film.

Having taken her first steps into the Jedi world, Rey joins Luke Skywalker on an adventure with Leia, Finn and Poe that unlocks mysteries of the Force and secrets of the past.

As always Agents of Shield doesn't waste any time. They pack so much into each episode and never really give us a chance to breathe. Episode 3 of Season 5, A Life Spent, has about 3 different plot points going on at once but they're all related and have us wondering about where the show is going (in a good way). We break down this episode as well as give some of our theories (I hope you all are prepared for LMD Fitz) and you're not going to want to miss it. Also? We throw in a little Disney buying 20th Century Fox talk and the first teaser for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse starring Miles Morales. Give it a listen!

Typically Arrow goes into its breaks pretty strong but we're kinda disappointed in episode 9 of season 2, Irreconcilable Differences.  This episode felt like a big step back for the character of Oliver Queen into some behavior we thought we moved on from. It also felt like too much of a retread of plot points from previous seasons. There are a few small changes to the story that could have been made to give this a more fresh take on the "betrayed by someone on the team" angle and also protect the character changes they've made to Oliver.
 
Also the reveal of the team Cayden James has put around himself to go at Team Arrow seems a bit odd and doesn't have the impact we think they were going for.

After Kara provided us with the clapback for the ages in the crossover, Reign begins her mission, dispensing her special brand of justice that includes not only a lot of murder and an attempt on the life of Morgan Edge, but also includes her beating the brakes off of Kara.  It was literally a combination of a Fellowship of the Rings Gandalf moment and a Rocky "Throw the damn towel" moment.  We also get our Lena/Jimmy ship sailing, and the ongoing awkwardness between Kara, Mon-El, and Imra.  Also, get Papa J'onnz some brown liquor please.

Kriss & Dpalm are back for another Super Tuesday Recap episode. We're discussing the mid-season finales of The Flash (S4E9 Don't Run) and Legends of Tomorrow (S3E9 Beebo The God of War). We're also trying something new with this episode. First up, we're combining the review into just one episode instead of two separate ones. We know most people listen to both and instead of clogging the feeds with two separate downloads we figured it would be easier to just put up one episode. We will have time stamps below for those that want to skip ahead.

 
Also, we're going to be doing a better job of including other information and general discussion in our episode. For this episode we open up talking about Tom King's latest issue of Batman and how it really nails both Batman and Superman. We end the episode with Dpalm giving his idea of how Warner Brothers can fix the DCEU. Check it out!
 
Oh and we did the show on Facebook Live. Don't worry, you didn't miss an announcement. It was a last minute decision by me (Kriss) to test out going Live. We're going to be running some tests for the next few shows so that hopefully we can start doing them more frequently in 2018.
 
Topics:
  • Tom King's Batman - 00:01:00
  • The Flash Review Season 4 Episode 9 Don't Run - 00:10:45
  • Legends of Tomorrow Review Season 3 Episode 9 Beebo The God of War - 00:42:55
  • Dpalm fixes the DCEU 01:04:58

Kriss is joined by Tim (@PeoplesCritc) to review The Post. But before that we discuss our current experiences watching screeners for this year's Oscar Contenders, some films you should keep an eye out for, the beautiful artwork sent to us for Get Out and more. This is an early preview of what the Movie Trailer Reviews podcast will be providing in 2018 as we try to expand our shows beyond just reviews.

As for the review...Steven Spielberg's The Post is an easy contender for Best Picture this year. Aside from starring two heavy hitters like Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, the films subject matter is is extremely relevant in the era of Trump. The film follows the story of how the Washington Post became a national paper thanks to the publishing of the Pentagon Papers and their fight against the Nixon White House which sought to shut them down.

I will be honest and didn't realize that Tommy Wiseau's The Room had a cult following like it does. I mean I should have, but I tend to forget truly terrible movies like The Room. But I quickly found out that The Room is a pretty big deal to some as our screener for The Disaster Artist, was packed. The Disaster Artist is basically James Franco and his friends recreating The Room and telling the story about how Wiseau and his friend Greg made one of the worst movies to exist.

There's something weirdly ironic about the film about a bad film being a great film. But that's where we are. James Franco actually shows a lot of acting chops to pull off how terrible and confusing Wiseau is. This is a hilariously good movie about the worst film ever made.

Listen as I'm joined by Tim to talk about what made this film work.

AGENTS OF SHIELD IS BACK!
 
We knew that season 5 of Agents of Shield would take us to space and face the agents off against aliens but not like this. Not only is the team (most of them) in space but they've also traveled through time and are in a future with a destroyed earth. The first two episodes answers some questions but like many Agents of Shield episodes, leaves us with even more questions. It's also very clear that they had fun time misleading us about the challenges the team would face and it's even more dire than we imagined. 
 
This is going to be a fun season to watch and it looks like the cast and crew know it too. Listen as we break down what happened in these first two episodes and why we're glad the show is back.

A 2-night, four show crossover requires us to pull out all the stops and so we’re bringing in the whole Super Tuesday Recap squad to discuss the Arrowverse (Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash & Legends of Tomorrow) crossover, Crisis on Earth-X.

But even better, thanks to Marvel Studios dropping the first teaser trailer for Avengers: Infinity War and so we HAVE to start off by discussing that comic goodness. Then it’s on to the main event with the CW & WB TV showing us what a proper Justice League looks like (yeah, shots fired). We discuss it all:

  • Evil Kara & Evil Oliver
  • The Return of Tommy Merlyn
  • Oliver being the Green Batman
  • Felicity being a trash wedding guest
  • Sara & Alex hooking up
  • The Marvel references and homage to old school Superman
  • Mick Rory continuing to be a national treasure
  • Victor Garber going out like a Legend
  • Leo Snart and The Ray
  • And More

You’re not going to want to miss this supersized episode that covers it all (even your listener feedback). Make sure you subscribe to Super Tuesday Recap on iTunes/Stitcher/Google so you don’t miss an episode.

It might be Thanksgiving but Arrow wasn't giving us any breaks as they put out episode 7 of season 6, Thanksgiving out on it's regular time and night. And it wasn't just a filler episode as a lot of things happen. Agent Watson makes her move and has Oliver arrested for being the Green Arrow. This probably would have had more impact if they did a better job of setting Watson's motivations like they have Jace Turner on The Gifted. Instead she just comes off as mean for no reason. We also get some internal strife in the team between Curtis & Felicity and then Diggle and Oliver. We discuss who we think was right and wrong in both these cases. Cayden James also sets up the team.
 
 
The one good thing for the team is that Thea wakes up from her coma. Which leads to us discussing how the show handles some of its female characters and what they can do to fix it.
 
Listen to get our full thoughts on this episode. Make sure you subscribe to Super Tuesday Recap so you don't miss a review.
 
Oliver celebrates Thanksgiving with his family but the happy moment is interrupted. Meanwhile, Black Siren returns to wreak havoc on the holiday.
