    Movie Moan 2015: Episode 9 - Avengers On Ice

    I can't believe Jamie brought up the bloody 'Grandpa Joe is a lazy sob' debate again.

    That's just one of the treats in store on this week's epic show where Phil Gee, Jamie Williams, Spencer Perry and Matt Thompson assemble to discuss if we're just going to roll over and become slaves to Disney's pummelling onslaught of similarly packaged films.........or decide we've grown up.

    But first, a warm and fuzzy conversation on laserdisc collecting, respect for original cinema poster artwork and the awesomeness of Shout Factory (4:09).

    Classic Movie Moan
    Phil, Jamie and Matt discuss Disney's recently announced slate of event films from 2015 all the way to Summer 2017; we cover the Star Wars films, the Pixar films, the live action remakes of their classic animated pictures, the new and hoping to be classic animated films, and, yes, more bloody Pirates Of The Caribbean.

    Are we looking at the biggest films of the next few years?  Will all these films get made?  Will they be any good?  Let's find out (15:22).

    Marveling At The Future
    We review 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron'.  Phil enjoyed it less than Jamie.  You may now gasp (1:51:41).

    I can honestly say your AGE OF ULTRON discussion is the first Movie Moan segment ever to actually have me talking at my computer screen! I do agree about the “ride” element of AOU, and I recognize its flaws (though I strongly disagree that there’s no story or theme), but they simply don’t bother me much; I had a blast with the movie, and I remain as excited as ever for further adventures in the MCU. I’m also a big defender of DEAD MAN’S CHEST, but that’s neither here nor there…

    Your Disney release slate discussion was absolutely aces! Seriously, I could listen to hours and hours of that sort of thing. I may be apprehensive about all the live action remakes of their animated classics they have coming, but overall I think it’s an interesting roster, and I’m curious to see how things like BRIDGE OF SPIES, ZOOTOPIA, THE BFG, MOANA, and GHOST IN THE SHELL turn out (in addition to all the Marvel stuff, which I’m totally in the tank for). It’s fun to speculate!

    Good episode, guys. I thought Age of Ultron was solid, I didn't think it was necessarily better or worse than the first one. In the first and third act I could feel the Kevin Feige notes. I thought Spader was great as Ultron. I just wish there was more of Vision he was an interesting character.

    My original question when I first heard the storyline for AOU stands - why the hell is Stark not in jail at the end of this one?
