They also review Dark Phoenix. Continue reading The Superhero Pantheon Vol. 2 – Episode 16: Logan & Dark Phoenix
It’s been a really solid last couple weeks for the podcast. That comes to a screeching halt this week as they discuss a total of a mess of a film that features the debuting Ivan Ooze…I mean, Apocalypse. Jerome and Brian examine a movie with too many flashbacks and subplots but not enough X-Men at the mall. Is this film messy enough to be Pile of Shame worthy?

How can a movie that makes two movies disappear and retconn previous actions be good? Somehow, Days of Future Past was able to accomplish a miracle.

Who cares about timelines when groovy powers are being showcased and out of this world costuming is seen on every corner. The acting is stellar (minus a certain very specific actor), and maybe this will be good enough to be the second X-Men film put into the Superhero Pantheon.

Jerome and Brian examine one of the most controversial and disappointing superhero movies of all-time, the climax of the first Marvel superhero trilogy as Brett Ratner takes over for Bryan Singer and nearly tanks an entire franchise. Is it bad enough to qualify for the pile of shame? Continue reading The Superhero Pantheon Vol. 2 – Episode 11: X-Men: The Last Stand
Jerome and Brian reviewed the first X-Men movie about a year ago, so this felt like a good time to repost that episode onto the Reel World feed (Apologies for the audio quality.)
Then it’s fresh content and the duo discuss the second X-Men film, generally regarded as one of the best superhero films ever made. Will it make the Pantheon?!
