With both commercial and critical successes of Spider-Man: Homecoming leaving high expectations, the second film, Far From Home arrives in the massive wake of Avengers: Endgame. Though Tom Holland’s much praised portrayal of everyone’s favorite web-head seemed to have nothing to prove, it would also appear quite the contrary with lots to prove (due to fanboy constant demands for pitch perfect authenticity of character). We at TBC_afp are no different in that regard as we also measure up. Swing in to find out! #spiderpun
The Summer of 2019 is speeding right past us and so are the releases of several genre films. Some that we have been anticipating and some not so much. Nevertheless, we here at TBC_afp are dedicated to delivering fair and balanced critique… well sorta. In subway series fashioned double header, we tackle both Dark Phoenix and Godzilla: King of Monsters but are they up to snuff?
As it’s currently reached the billion dollar behemoth status, Avengers: Endgame, sequel to Avengers: Infinity War (both directed by brothers, Anthony and Joe Russo) is the stamped culmination marking 11 years of cinematic triump and world building by Marvel Studios. With great pleasure and delight, TBC_afp reviews this massive film chronicling World’s Mightiest Heroes, thus closing a monumental chapter yet making room for some new stories… until next time we hear the battlecry: #AVENGERSASSEMBLE
A famous writer once penned the line “What's in a name? That which we call a rose; By any other name would smell as sweet” in order to evoke the idea that what really counts isn’t just how a thing is labeled. Rather that true heroic significance and character comes from within or that our actions define us. In SHAZAM!, starring Zachary Levi as DC Comic’s sometimes anti-Superman analog and child’s-eye-view superhero commentary (commonly know through the source material as Captain Marvel), WB/ DC Cinematic Universe attempts to deliver at the Box Office again at the wake of Aqua-success, The World's Mightiest Mortal. Follow TBC_afp as they take that leap of faith and call out SHAZAM!
It is Marvel Studio’s tenth anniversary “phase” build up and we are introduced to Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel. With actress Brie Larsen portraying the character lead as Marvel’s biggest heavy, there is without hesitation both excitement from fans and controversy at a trolling level. While, a week into Captain Marvel’s theatrical release and already a half billion dollars at the box office, it’s safe to assume the franchise’s security though conversations, sometime ignited by inspiration or gender politics rages on...
Jon Bernthal may not be The Man in The High Castle (a reference to actress, Alexa Davalos’ two episode cameo) and that is because he is THE MAN WHO IS Frank Castle AKA The Punisher, Marvel’s judge, jury and executioner vigilante featured on Netflix. TBC_afp take another dive into the dramatic second season and final conclusion.
As they say in Lego Bricksburg, “Everything Is Awesome” especially when it’s Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse, Sony’s runaway animated hit originally conceived by LEGO The Movie’s Phil Lord and Christopher Miller based on Marvel’s friendly neighborhood flagship web head.
We at TBC_afp never fully considered reviewing this spectacle of a film fully casted with big names such as Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali and Nick Cage if not for the word of buzz. But we did it! So now, swing back into podcast mode and enjoy!

Ok… So it doesn’t flow as well as Mr. Incredibles theme nor is it original. After all it’s just a parody and therefore we can’t be called out for plagiarism, right?
Look, it’s been 14 years since Pixar released The Incredibles, the original breakout animated film which some fanboys have referred to as “one of the best superhero movies ever made.” Sit back and geek out with TBC a fanboy podcast on how the film measured.
The crew of TBC_afp got down to the nitty gritty topical discussion concerning Bionic Six, Margot Kidder, Telly Savales and a little known latest sequel to the massive juggernaut (full pun intended) hit movie, Deadpool. But how does the Ryan Reynold’s highly anticipated follow up fair? Do we get to see X-Forcer's like Shatterstar jump into action with the pitter patter of lil’ baby Rob Liefeld feet? And what about that "you know what" regarding Brad Pitt? So, chillax, put on some dubstep but not too loud or else you won’t be able to hear this episode.
