60. Avengers: Endgame

60. Avengers: Endgame

Until this exact moment, we thought you were Build-A-Bear

At last! The ending of one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time! Lani and Joshua talk about the end to the Thanos Saga as well as the mixed bag of endings some of our original Avengers received. Joshua also goes back to the DC Universe of the mid 1990s to try and explain the time travel in this movie. (Spoiler: it isn’t really time travel.)

59. Captain Marvel

59. Captain Marvel

We go higher, further, faster, baby!

LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE as Joshua and Lani have a bit of a disagreement over CAPTAIN MARVEL. Lani hates it, Joshua loves it, but who will win? YOU DECIDE!

57. Avengers: Infinity War

57. Avengers: Infinity War

We’re not looking for forgiveness and we’re way past asking permission.

For INFINITY WAR,  Lani and Joshua discuss what happens when you think of Thanos as being METAL and then proceed to get real philosophical about this allegedly big dumb superhero story. 

75. Listen Up, Hand-Holes: The Muppet Movie

One honey cone for the bear, one dragonfly ripple for the frog. Don’t get ‘em mixed up.

For their first look at a feature length project, Joshua and Lani dig into THE MUPPET MOVIE. How do the Muppets’ particular brand of chaos transfer from skits and gags to the big screen? Pretty well, honestly, but not without some bumps in the road.

56. Black Panther

WAKANDA FOREVER!

For BLACK PANTHER, Joshua and Lani discuss the joy of stories so full of amazing women and people of color, the history of Wakanda, both fictional and metatextual, and even dip their toes into afrofuturism and the Parliament Funkadelic. Are you hip to Easter Island?

55. Thor: Ragnarok

55. Thor: Ragnarok

We know him! He’s a friend from work!

In this episode, Joshua and Lani talk about post-colonialism, the humor of indigenous people, and feminine rage. Oh, and Lani decides she loves Thor. It’s a Ragnarok miracle!

54. Spider-Man: Homecoming

54. Spider-Man: Homecoming

We do whatever a spider can!

For Homecoming, Lani and Joshua talk about the angry origins of Spider-Man, their appreciation for superheroes that don’t murder, and why the Vulture is one of the MCU’s great villains.

53. Guardians of the Galaxy v. 2

53. Guardians of the Galaxy v. 2

We were told you people were conceited douchebags, but that isn’t true at all.

For Guardians of the Galaxy v. 2, Joshua and Lani are joined by Rob Heiret of STAR WARS podcast Metaphors Be With You to discuss, as Lani puts it, “space stuff.” And thank goodness he’s here to help bear the load because this movie is…not great. But the Four Color Facts and the rants are a bit more enjoyable than the film…we hope.
