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
