Episode 62 – Blade 2
Blade 2, directed by Guillermo Del Toro, is the continuation of the day walker’s story. Where the first film was a relatively grounded story (or at least as grounded as a vampire/vampire hunter story can be) this film dials the scope up to 11. Atul, Justin, and special guest Antoine continue the Blade series retrospective with Blade 2. A film that everyone loves, but is by no means a perfect film. The harbingers jump in to what they love about this film, a slew of the plot holes, interesting dialog choices, and fashion choices. Overall, this film manages to stand up to the original while not feeling like anything is being rehashed. Blade 2 touches on what made us all love the first film, and introduces ideas that manage to excite. Though, Blade Trinity added new concepts too, and feels different, but not in a good way. More to come on that one soon… Also, if you haven’t already, be sure to check out our first episode in the Blade retrospective series.

Episode 61 – Blade
Blade is arguably the first big Marvel Comics franchise to find a great deal of success on the silver screen. And it was a formative action film for all 3 of us on the podcast. Antoine returns to join Atul and I in talking about the 1998 classic starring Wesley Snipes. This is the first in our retrospective on the Blade series. Eventually we will also be covering the sequels, both the good one and the bad one. But for now we hope you enjoy our thorough dissection. We dig in pretty deep into the plot, things we liked, things we didn’t, and more. The post Episode 61 – Blade appeared first on Welcome To Your Doom Show.

Episode 60 – Zack Snyder’s Justice League
Guys. Gals. We did it. Nerd rage made a movie. Or at least helped get it released. It’s kinda funny though that everyone that seemingly clamoured for this were largely the same people condemning the director before the 2017 version was released. Zack Snyder’s Justice League is the aforementioned director’s vision for the DCEU. For better or worse. Snyder’s unapologetic view of this world is at the very least unique and visually stunning. Zack Snyder’s Justice League was seemingly never set to see the light of day, but the path to release was pushed through by the fans, #releasethesnydercut movement, and ultimately the powers-that-be at Warner Bros. Did the studio believe Snyder’s vision was a bust? Did they want something more in the same vein of the Avengers? I doubt we’ll find the exact reason but it will be fun to speculate. So Episode 60 is technically the Snyder Cut version of Episode 10 so be sure to check that out as well. The post Episode 60 – Zack Snyder’s Justice League appeared first on Welcome To Your Doom Show.

Episode 59 – Superman Reboot, Zombies, Highlander
Who would have thought a moustache would be the Man of Steel’s downfall? Ok, probably not actually the cause but it looks a Superman reboot by J.J. Abrams is in the works. Can we please get someone else to reboot sci-fi franchises please? Anyone else you can think of that would be better suited to helm a Superman reboot? We also discuss more than a few other topics in this episode. We give some random musings on Highlander, Army of the Dead, and on the gaming side discuss Aliens: Fireteam. One other notable shout out is a new short film by Bat in the Sun is dropping on 3/10/2021 titled Dying is Easy. It is a short Batman film made by Aaron Schoenke and the rest of the folks at Bat in the Sun that features the great Kevin Porter donning the cowl of the Dark Knight. Schoenke is wearing multiple hats for this effort including editing, directing, but also reprises his role as the Joker. His interpretation of the Joker is a very hearty blend of the comics with a dash of Mark Hamill. The film looks like it is going to be great so be sure to check out their YouTube. And check them out on Patreon if you’d like to support them directly. The post Episode 59 – Superman Reboot, Zombies, Highlander appeared first on Welcome To Your Doom Show.

Sidequest 10: The Dark Tower – Gunslinger Born
Have you ever considered getting into Stephen King’s the Dark Tower books, but found the whopping 8 book series a bit daunting? Atul presents what he feels to be the perfect way for new readers to get into the Dark Tower in the form of Marvel’s series of graphic novel adaptations, starting with The Gunslinger Born.

Episode 58 – Mortal Kombat, Gina Carano, Zack Snyder’s Justice League
Gina Carano is officially gone! Rejoice all ye haters! Seems when one work for the house of mouse, they must mind their P’s, Q’s, and subtly (and not so subtly) offensive tweets. Agree with Disney’s move? Disagree? Give the episode a listen and hear our thoughts. We also talk about the Mortal Kombat trailer that recently dropped. We’re both floored, but I remain cautiously optimistic. In the world of trailers, we also touch on the latest trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Will this movie be released to critical acclaim? Will this fix all the on-screen problems of Joss Whedon’s Justice League (sorry Ray Fisher). If you want to hear more about our feelings on Justice League you can check out Episode 10 – Justice League Review, and check out last weeks episode for The Mandalorian to hear more context regarding our thoughts on Gina Carano and her Cara Dune character.

Episode 57 – The Mandalorian
We’re back and we’re talking The Mandalorian. After a good, long, sorta-covid-fueled break, we’re back. If I’m being honest it was less the pandemic and more just life that kept us from firing up our mics and chatting about the stuff that really matters. But now we’ve found the time, we’ve found the drive, and we’re coming back at you with more Star Wars. Atul’s favorite topic. We discuss the very popular Disney Plus series The Mandalorian. It’s been a main driver for the traffic at the streaming service which continues to put out high quality content from a galaxy far far away. Or do they? We discuss the show’s merits, it’s follies, and Atul’s ongoing Star Wars fatigue. The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal as the titular character. He portrays Mando, a mandalorian bounty hunter who adopts a young force-sensitive companion simply known as “the child”. After a botched bounty-hunting job the two characters are linked in a father/son like relationship. Season 1 follows Mando’s struggle with his moral code, and reintroduces the audience to a Star Wars world post Return of the Jedi. Season 2 is a quest-y type of season with some surprises, big moments, and a few eye-rollers. Plus, Bill Burr. Nuff said. Also, check out Episode Episode 14 – Star Wars The Last Jedi or Episode 54 – Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker for more Star Wars content.

Episode 56 – It’s All Gone Nineteen
Hey Folks, sorry for the late post (in more ways than one). Atul and I get into the true source of our “production” delays into the episode. However, we are planning on being back to the regular schedule during this weird, Covid-19 ridden time. All we can say is it’s all gone nineteen (ominous…right?). We talk about what we have been up to since everything turned…different. Discussions also diverge into stupid conspiracy theories and the impact the pandemic will have on the movie industry. Enjoy, and please stay safe and healthy out there. The post Episode 56 – It’s All Gone Nineteen appeared first on Welcome To Your Doom Show.

Episode 55 – 90’s Slashers, The Batman, and Cats
What’s up folks, Justin here. Atul gives us a rundown of a 90’s slasher film he checked out called Cherry Falls. We discuss the first look at Robert Pattinson as Batman. We also talk about the VFX society’s outrage at some dumb jokes made at the academy awards. The post Episode 55 – 90’s Slashers, The Batman, and Cats appeared first on Welcome To Your Doom Show.

Episode 54 – Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
The Last Film Rises? I Guess Batman Did It… Hey Kids. Atul and I finally got around to reviewing Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Truthfully, as I type this, my fingers keep trying to type “The Last…” because it’s the last damn film. Alright, I’ll stop complaining. Given this movie’s made all of the money, I’m sure you’ve already seen The Rise of Skywalker. So I’m going to forego the large preamble and we can get into the episode. Enjoy! Last things last. If you haven’t already, you can also check out our review on The Last Jedi to hear what led to this episode.

What’s up folks. This is our first recording of 2020. We also got trailers for Morbius and Locke and Key and Atul and I have some thoughts about these damn things.

Episode 52 – LAN Party and Christmas Recap
Hey Folks! Happy New Year! We recorded this episode just before New Years, but decided to give ourselves the additional week to decompress from the holidays. We recorded it at our prestigious LAN party event. This is when a group of 30-something year old men lock themselves in a basement for 3 days and play video games. Sounds gross? Well, that’s because it kind of is. But it’s also one of our favorite things about the holidays. In this episode we talk about prepping for LAN Party, the quality of the Marvel/Disney blu-rays, we recap our christmas, and Atul recaps my wife and I’s Gender reveal party. Atul also discusses his weird obsession with the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol. The post Episode 52 – LAN Party and Christmas Recap appeared first on Welcome To Your Doom Show.

Episode 51 – Joker
Todd Phillips delivers probably the most unique comic book film to date simply titled Joker. Atul and Justin review the film and discuss its hits and misses? Does it do justice for the clown prince of crime? The story of the film is interesting, but the shining light is truly the performances from the actors, as well as the look of the film. The cinematography of Joker is truly beautiful. We also discuss the Black Widow trailer, a Horror convention Atul attended, and a dance off between Pennywise and Joker. We also chat about Joker’s Rotten Tomatoes score! If you haven’t listened to our episode on Rotten Tomatoes you can check it out here.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have hit the 50 episode milestone! It’s a minor milestone, but we never actually celebrated a milestone before, so here it is! We talk about Atul’s utter hatred (ok, I’m exaggerating) for gender reveal parties, Star Wars Fatigue, and we reflect on our podcasting experience so far. Oh, and why do we bring up a gender reveal? Check out the episode to find out! Sorry for the delay on release folks but lately, our day jobs have been ramping up like crazy. Hard to get together for pods, but we should be back to a regular two week schedule again soon. Some of the topics we cover: Some of my favorite podcasts I mentioned in the episode are Joe Rogan Experience, Your Mom’s House, and Fighter and the KidHead Count: A movie we saw over Halloween. Overall, mixed reviews amongst our group.Some of our favorite episodes that get a shout out: Aquaman Review, Christmas Chronicles, the Last Jedi Review, and Alien Covenant. I’m going to keep this short, but from Atul and I thank you very much for checking us out. To another 50 episodes, and beyond!

Balloons, Water Hags, and More! Atul and I, along with our resident Stephen King expert Sudip discuss IT: Chapter 2. This 3 hour film concludes the tale of Pennywise, the dancing clown, and the Losers from Derry, Maine.

Episode 47 – Batman vs TMNT
Batman vs TMNT The Dark Knight vs a gang of giant teenagers. Sounds kinda silly when typing it out, but when those giant teenagers are also ninjas, mutant, and turtles, well you have something special. Batman vs TMNT is the latest animated DC film to be released and it has flown under the radar. Frankly folks, we, the harbingers, did not really consider watching this until I stumbled upon a clip of the shredder killing a foot clan ninja with a throwing star. It was a complete surprise. In this episode, we’re joined by Michael, our resident DC Animated movie fanatic. To summarize the episode, we all enjoyed the hell out of this film. It’s fun, full of action, and has plenty of memorable moments. We definitely endorse this film. Is it a kids movie? Well…that remains to be seen. Joker We also have some preamble about the Joker film by Todd Phillips. It is receiving quite a bit of buzz and there is already Oscar buzz, including best actor for Joaquin Phoenix. MK11 Kombat Pack The Joker talk leads us into chatting about the Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack which features the Joker, as well as Spawn, the Terminator and other Mortal Kombat staples. This addition is pretty epic, and including favorites like Shang Tsung and Nightwolf is a big deal. Gameplay for all of the characters isn’t available, but you can check out their character intro trailer here. The post Episode 47 – Batman vs TMNT appeared first on Welcome To Your Doom Show.

Episode 46: Richard Gere and Infinity War Blunders
What Do You Call a Group of Gerbils? Spoiler alert – Richard Gere has some involvement in the answer. Atul and I discuss an interesting plethora of topics in this episode. They range from Richard Gere’s rumored association with the aforementioned furry creatures, and we revisit alleged blunders by characters in Avengers: Infinity War. We also talk a bit about the new Titans season coming soon, Scooby’s return to Zombie Island, and the upcoming CW Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Episode 45: Spider-Man – Far From Home
Peter…Tingle? Justin, Atul, and our special guest Antoine discuss the most recent entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man: Far From Home. All the usual suspects from the MCU are back for the final entry in the Infinity Saga including Aunt May, Happy Hogan, MJ, Ned, and Nick Fury. Also joining the party is the mysterious Mysterio (yeah I just did that). Overall Spider-Man: Far From Home is worth a watch, does a good job as a bookend to Avengers: Endgame, and teases what is to come in the future for the MCU. The Daywalker Walks Again!!! In other MCU News, Marvel dropped their future film/TV lineup at San Diego Comic Con 2019. This includes a Jane Foster led Thor film, a Dr. Strange sequel that will dabble in the horror genre, and most importantly plans for a new Blade. The original Blade, released in 1998, is a massively important film for Atul, Antoine, and I. It paved the way for later comic book franchises, and proved that leather clad, muscle bound heros could work on the silver screen. The enormity of this announcement, and the near perfect casting of Mahershala Ali, is a major cause in the length of this episode. When Antoine states his appreciation for the film, Atul and I kinda lose our shit. There’s at least a couple Blade tangents this episode, so hopefully you enjoy the tales of the Daywalker as much as the boys do. Crash and Flow Podcast Antoine’s an old friend I met through my wife, and the man is a wealth of comic book knowledge. He’s featured often on the podcast Crash and Flow, another Ontario based podcast in Canada. Crash and Flow cover all kinds of topics across movies, TV, sports, social media, fitness, and much more. It’s entered my regular podcast rotation and should be in yours too. You can check out their website here. They’re available wherever you get your podcasts, and check out their YouTube page as well.

Episode 44: SDCC 2019 News, Sharknado, and John Carpenter
SDCC 2019 What’s up folks, Justin here. We start off this episode discussing some of the News that’s come out of SDCC 2019 (San Diego Comic Con). We recorded on the Friday so we were missing some pretty big pieces of news that came out on Saturday, but that just gives us content for later! I lived in LA for almost 6 years, and SDCC was a staple while I was there. Working in the animation industry I was fortunate enough to be eligible for professional credentials. I haven’t gone to one in a few years since returning to Toronto, but reviewing the news and exclusives that come out of the con is always bitter sweet. Crawl vs. Sharknado? Atul discusses in high-level detail the film Crawl, and how it’s being compared to the Sharknado films. This results in a rant/debate about the merit of the Sharknado films, and intentionally bad films in general. John Carpenter: Musician We close out the episode discussing John Carpenter’s recent expansion into the world of musical performances. Having seen him live, we can both say that it’s a great show, and seeing Mr. Carpenter live playing the keys is a sight to behold. However, he’s no Bach, Mozart, or Beethoven.
