PODCAST: Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood (SPOILERS)!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

    Get excited, folks! Because this week will feature not one, but TWO episodes of “The World’s Best Podcast”! In the first of the two AWESOME podcasts to come out this week, I review the latest film by iconic filmmaker, Quentin Tarantino: Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood! Tarantino is without question on of the greatest living directors. But for me, personally, he is part of a very small group of directors that, in my eyes, can do no know wrong. When Quentin Tarantino has a new movie coming out, I don’t need to know the plot, who’s in it, or even the goddamn title. There’s a new Tarantino out? I’m there!

     This just one man’s opinion, because I know he has his critics, but I fucking adore his movies! What can I say? 

    Having said that, as you’ll hear in the podcast, this by far Tarantino’s weakest film. That’s not to say the movie’s bad. It isn’t. I enjoyed the hell of of it. Tarantino’s worst movie is still better than 99 out of 100 other films. The look of the film is wonderful. The movie manages to capture that “old Hollywood” look in spectacular fashion. 

     Let’s not forget, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are two of the most watchable leading men on the big screen. A lot of the film’s fun comes from their relationship and DiCaprio and Pitt’s talent carry the film. Anyway, I’ve rambled on long enough, you can listen to my full review posted below. I try to keep things somewhat vague at the beginning of the episode, in case you haven’t seen the movie yet, but I give you fair warning before we go into FULL SPOILERS.

   This is the first of TWO podcast I’ll be posting this week. The next episode is going to focus on some very cool, returning and new, superhero TV and film projects. We’re going to give you the scoop on this year’s Arrowverse MEGA Crossover, which is by far their most ambitious to date: an adaptation or arguably the biggest superhero crossover of all time, Crisis On Infinite Earths! We’ll also be discussing the trailer for Titans Season 2, and much more.

PODCAST: Movie News! Strangers Things SHAZAM! Supernatural, New Trailer, & More!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

This was a big week for film and television. There were some big announcements (good and bad), we got a few interesting interesting new trailers (Stranger Things Season 3 being my personal favorite) and reviews for some of the year’s most anticipated movies.

The biggest story of the week was probably the Disney/Fox merger. It’s official, the Disney/Fox merger has completed. What does that mean? Well, basically Disney now owns all of Fox’s entertainment intellectual property. The big thing most people have been focusing on, especially here at World’s Best Media is how this will affect Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fox had control of a lot of very cool characters from Marvel Comics most notably (and most excitingly) the Fantastic Four and the X-Men.

The timing is perfect for the MCU. After Avengers: Endgame blows our collective minds, this Chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will come to a close and a new Chapter will begin. Marvel announced earlier this week that EVERYTHING in the MCU from Iron Man to Avengers: Endgame will be known as The Infinity Saga. I actually really like that they’ll be one name for this huge story instead of just Phases 1-3.

We don’t know much about the new direction the MCU will be taking except that it kicks off in Phase 4, which will begin with Spider-Man: Far From Home opening this July. Marvel Studios like to make big theatrical announcements about their upcoming films. Considering how secretive they have been about Avengers:Endgame. I imagine the events of the film will drastically alter the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a degree that they won’t be able to announce much without spoiling Endgame in someway. I expect we’ll see a big press conference/announcement from Kevin Fiege, the head of Marvel Studios. How long until we see X-Men and Fantastic Four characters in the MCU? Time will tell…

John Wick 3…. So fucking awesome!

In the meantime, check out this week’s episode of The World’s Best Podcast where I discuss all the big movie and TV that hit this week. In this episode I talk about Supernatural ending it’s run with next year’s Season 15, so here’s a link to an article I wrote about the series last year if you want to learn more about the series: https://best-media-world.com/2017/09/25/must-watch-supernatural/

PODCAST: The Films of Quentin Tarantino (Part 1)

Hey Everybody!

I was really excited to record this week’s Episode of The World’s Best Podcast for a couple of reasons. First, I had World’s Best Media contributor Mike Cole making his first appearance on the show as my co-host on this Episode. Secondly, I’ve wanted to do an episode about Quentin Tarantino long time. Like the Spielberg episode I did with Tim Cuff a few months back, Mike and I basically go over Tarantino’s entire filmography from Reservoir Dogs to The Hateful Eigth and beyond. This is also a 2-Part episode  because there’s a lot to be said about a legendary filmmaker like Tarantino.

I also want to apologize about some sound issues we had with this episode. You can hear my voice load and clear, but Mike’s audio comes through much lower than mine, so he can be a little hard to hear at times. Unfortunately, your best bet is to be ready to change the volume throughout the episode. It’s not Mike’s fault at all, I have some new recording equipment and software that I’m still getting used to. We recorded Parts 1 and 2 at the same time, so when I release Part 2 this issue will still be present.

We’ve sorted out the problem so this won’t happen again. But the good news is the sound quality is excellent now that I have my new recording equipment all set. The World’s Best Podcast is going to sound better than ever!  I appreciate your patience on this one, folks. Once again I apologize for the technical issues.  I think that the sound issue isn’t as bad on iTunes compared to the Spreaker links I usually use, so I’d recommend listening to the Tarantino episodes on iTunes, so I’ve included both links below:Listen here
