Moon Knight (Spoiler Discussion) & In The News.
When actor Oscar Issac isn't portraying characters stretching throughout the spectrum from Star Wars' Poe Dameron to X-Men Mutant baddie Apocalypse to Dune's Duke Leto Atreides or even voicing animated Spider-Man 2099, He also plays several protagonist due to the titular hero's Dissociative identity disorder in Marvel Studios' Moon Knight on Disney Plus.

The Batman (Spoiler Review)
In the immortal parodied words of Alfred Pennyworth, well not really, more like an exchange between British comedians, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon from the 2014 film The Trip to Italy, we get a tickling Michael Caine impersonation-off exchange that went like this: "I'm not going to bury 'nother Batman!" "Another Batman? How many Batman(s) has he been buring?" Which in reflection hilariously sums up most sentiments from when WB announced in 2019 yet another Batman would be cast for a standalone movie this time directed by Matt Reeves to be set apart from Zack Synder's Batman portrayed by Ben Affleck. This time Robert Pattinson, of Twilight Saga fame, would be cast as the Dark Knight and already fans either felt optimistcallly cautious or flat out unsure how this project would pan out. As of current having enjoyed being at the top of the box office for only a month, The Batman sits at $676 million and counting, still not quite what Spider-Man No Way Home has accomplished but time will tell. And what do we think? Here's a Riddle: I can be tuned for conversation but not like a piano nor radio. What am I? #apodcast

The Book of Boba Fett (Season 1, Spoiler Discussion)
A long time ago... from a great 70's movie franchise called Star Wars, it's creator, George Lucas penned a mysteriously helmeted bounty hunter named Boba Fett as an animated short on the painfully received televised Star Wars Christmas Special. Eventually, this character had made it to the big screen debuting a live action Fett collecting on his bounty by successfully capturing the hero Han Solo thereby bringing a grim conclusion to the original trilogy's second installment, Empire Strikes Back. Following with the sequel, Return of the Jedi, Fett, not really living up to his legend, is immediately vanquished (or so it seemed) by Luke Skywalker during Han's rescue fray. And for decades it had been assumed that Fett had perished, end of story. Nevertheless, there had been non canonical tales of Fett's survival and expansion of his people, the Mandalorians during the years of Star Wars wilderness in comic books. Until Disney acquired Lucasfilm and then years followed leading up to the second season of The Mandalorian (2020) on Disney Plus, where we finally see the return of Boba Fett, portrayed by the franchise's prequel vet, Temuera Morrison who cemented his cinematic status as Boba's dad, Jando and it's clones nearly two decades prior. It was then announced that fans would get an additional series called The Book of Boba Fett leaving fans scratching heads on whether this was something new or a continuation to the widely successful Mandalorian series. On this podcast episode TBC_afp delves and evaluates on how TBOBF faired. So strap in and Slave... err Firespray away. #nodisintergrations #iambobafett

Disney+ / Marvel's Hawkeye (Season 1 Spoiler Discussions) & The Matrix Resurrections
In one of the most notable iconic Marvel cinematic scenes from The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Clint Barton (portrayed by Jeremy Renner) aka Hawkeye tells Wanda Maximoff "...the city is flying, we're fighting an army of robots... and I have a bow and arrow. None of this makes sense." This pretty much sums up Marvel’s ace archer, Hawkeye who represents the analog superhero in a sea of indestructible gravity defying meta-beings and demigods, nevertheless he remains a fan favorite. And after years of tail-ending the Avenger cast roster on the big screen, Renner finally gets his time to shine. Only it is on the small screen with his own series on Disney Plus. Additionally, Renner shares his marquee along with popstar/ film ingenue, Hailee Steinfeld who also makes her debuts as... Hawkeye. None of this makes sense indeed or will it? Trick arrows or not, TBC_afp is bowed up and ready to draw. #itsthemostwonderfultimeoftheyear

Eternals (Spoiler Discussion)
Partially touted as one of the best Marvel films ever made (by junkets and ad marketing), Eternals, which originally was shown in theatres has now been widely released on Disney Plus. And with that the jury appears to be out with mixed reviews as a newest edition to the MCU created by the legendary comic book artist Jack Kirby in the late 70s. Eternals, for the MCU, would usher entry into the cosmic realm even far beyond what James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy would bring. The film also includes a star studded cast, including Selma Hayek, Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden and newly crowned lead, Gemma Chan (who was previously cast as Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel). The big question here is how was it received at TBC_afp? Tune in to find out. #HarryStyles #StarFox #nuffsaid

Spider-Man: No Way Home (Spoiler Discussion)
If the start of the pandemic was only a couple of years ago (and without trivializing the impact of its events) then Tom Holland's MCU entry as Spider-Man, in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, seemed just like another lifetime ago. And now, by the time this podcast is out, Spider-Man: No Way Home has triumpiantly captured "post-pandemic" box office gold with still having more steam since it's December 2021 release. On this episode of TBC_afp we get into the sauce of the excitement surrounding Spider-Man: NWH and it's well/ not so well kept secrets. #friendlyfilipinospiderlola

Dune: From Lynch to Villeneuve (Spoiler Discussion)
Bringing Frank Herbert's Dune from page to the big screen has been long considered, to both fans and filmmakers, a Sci-Fi Holy Grail of sorts. With one original failed cinematic attempt (Jodoworsky), two feature films (set decades apart with one sequel in the works) and a Sci Fi Channel miniseries (2000) in mind, every stab at this hard sci-fi saga has been furiously debated on its pretense or grandeur. Yet, Dune's impact on Hollywood is undeniable inspiring those of such as George Lucas to Ridley Scott. NOT IN THE MOOD you say? Well, order some pumpkin spice Joe, get podcast comfortable and enter the desert world of Arrakis AKA Dune. #TheRighteous !!???

007: Never Die Tomorrow Twice Again Part 1 (Classic Movies Era Discussion)
No entertainment intellectual property has stood longer, for better or for worse (depending on who you talk to), than Ian Flemming's British gentleman super spy hypenate sexy womanizing (maybe even misogynist) international man of action, Agent 007 James Bond. Spanning 25 films from when Dr. No was released in 1968, 007 has spawned parodies, uncanonical spin offs all the while influecing the Hollywood action genre... Or perhaps chasing after trends. Fans and critics have argued and romanticized in love and hate, for some time now, over it's questionable yet alluring cinematic quality. While no different, TBC_afp steps into Her Majesty's Sercret Service to pay homage, oftenly lampooning and maybe even lambast in this two parter podcast. So sit back and have a #martini #shakennotstirred on us.

Richard Donner #RIP
The Godfather of modern Superhero/ comicbook movie genre, Richard Donner directed Superman The Movie in 1978 starring Christopher Reeve. The follow up sequel Superman II lead to a departure by the director due to creative differences resulting in a lesser treatment only for the director’s cut to be released in later years.

Donner’s impact on Hollywood filmmaking shall remain undeniable. #RIP

Say My Name! aka Loki Season 1
For about a decade, Tom Hiddleston has breathed not only life but also a anglo sexy wretchedness into the MCU's first Phase One Arch Villain, Loki, Asgardian God of Mischief. With that Hiddleston single-handedly popularized this Thor nemesis so much to the affect that Disney+ has gloriously (and purposely) released a mini-series chronicling further adventures. TBC_apf delivers a mid series low down but also in this episode, a bit of entertainment news, etc. #owenwilson #MobiusMMobius #wow

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Spoiler Discussion
Second chances or perhaps fluke miracles could be used to describe Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the direct-to-HBO Max’s streaming 4 hour original director’s cut of the flopped 2017 theatrical version, bringing together for the very first time, DC Comic’s superheroes to the big screen. This unexpected opportunity is a clear revelation to both fanboys and critics whether Synder merits creative vindication or not.
