MOVIE REVIEW: Shang-Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…


On this episode of The World’s Best Podcast, we give our straight out of the theater reaction, to latest MCU film, Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings! While not a FULL SPOILER review, a few MAJOR SPOILERS get dropped in our discussion, so listener beware! Instead of the studio, we recorded this in our car, immediately after seeing the film, which is why there’s a little background noise. However, I did want to include some Easter Eggs, interesting background info, and connections to the rest of The MCU, that just might enrich your experience when seeing Shang-Chi.


One of the cool things about Shang Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings, is that certain elements of the character’s history have been present in The MCU, all the way back to the first Iron Man film in 2008. None of this really counts as a spoiler, because it’s nothing that hasn’t been shown in the trailer. is nothing that you haven’t seen in the trailers. The Ten Rings is like a more mysterious, ninja HYDRA. I’m going to elaborate on how the organization was pulling the strings and making moves during some key moments in The MCU. The Ten Rings make their debut in the first MCU movie, Iron Man, in 2008. The Ten Rings were the terrorist organization that kidnapped Tony Stark at the beginning of the movie. They want him to make a weapons of mass destruction but instead Tony plans an escape by building his Mach 1 armor. With that Iron Man, and the MCU, was born. 


In Iron Man 2, it’s revealed that, in a deleted scene, agents of The Ten Rings, helped Mickey Rourke’s Whiplash get past security and onto the race track, where ha attacked Tony in his race car during the Monaco Grand Prix. 


Even in Ant-Man, towards the end of the film the current head of Pym Tech, Cross has finally been able to replicate his hands on Hank Pym’s shrinking technology. Cross, who’s a real sack if shit, intends to sell it to the highest bidders. Many shady buyers showed for the unveiling of the Yellowjacket, Cross’s version of the Ant-Man suit. Including Hydra, A.I.M., several agents of The Ten Rings. If you have Disney+ I’d also recommend checking out the short film All Hail The King, starring Ben Kingsley‘s character from Iron Man 3, Trevor Slattery. Not only is it a really fun little short, it also has a really cool connection to Shang Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings.

PODCAST: Captain Marvel Review!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

5E5D407D-64BD-4C84-B96D-903BC9452818

The MCU’s Phase III has been, so far, Marvel’s best set of films yet. Phase III began with  Captain America: Civil War and will wrap up with this April’s Avengers: Endgame.  All of   Marvel’s movies have been, at the very least, solid & fun at their worst and masterpieces at the best. The current renaissance of Mavel’s flicks has largely been the result of the  creation of Marvel Studios, an independent movie studio that produces and has complete control over creative choices.  Kevin Fiege, the head of Marvel Studios, has bee a huge part of the MCU’s success. Disney bought Marvel a few years ago,  but Marvel Studios still remains independent and free to produce films in anyway they see fit.

C3779BE2-8818-40D6-8A27-61D946975503

Don’t get me wrong there are some great movies here, some of the best in Phases I & II include:

Phase I

Iron Man

Captain America: The First Avenger

Thor

The Avengers

Phase II

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Guadians of The Galaxy

Ant-Man

but they don’t compared to the level of quality and experimentation that we saw in Phase III:

Capain America: Civil War

Doctor Strange

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.2

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Thor: Ragnarok

Black Panther

Avengers: Infinity War

Ant-Man & The Wasp

Captain Marvel

That a pretty fucking great set of movies in Phase III which culminates in Endgame.  Phase IV starts with Spider-Man: Far From Home FYI.

I’m happy  to say that Phases III has not disappointed us with Captain Marvel. This episode of The World’s Best Podcast is all about Captain Marvel.  We are doing a deep dive review of Captain Marvel with full spoilers, so we were there.

Captain Marvel Trailer Breakdown!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here..

D3611391-CD8B-42CC-B68E-BCCE49AE79DC

The second trailer for Captain Marvel dropped today (meanwhile those sons of bitches over at Marvel keep cock teasing us with the Avengers 4 trailer)! It looks pretty darn good, if I do say so myself! This looks like it’s going to be a fun space adventure, leading up to the epic finale of Avengers 4.

Below I recorded a full trailer breakdown with all of the inside info on connections to the comic book source material, how this movie relates to the rest of the MCU, background on key character and story details, and much more!

All of this is pretty SPOILER FREE, despite some speculation on my part regarding where the movie might go. Unless you want to know absolutely nothing going into this film, you should be ok. You can watch the full trailer here and listen to my audio breakdown below. I’d recommend watching the trailer and then playing it again along with my audio commentary for full effect:
