Cinema Misfits Podcast, Episode 79: Thor: The Dark World, Enders’ Game, and 12 Years a Slave

6 ‘n 90!  Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds!

Thor: The Dark World.  Hollywood has its own version of the Asgardian Convergence.  Every so often the availability of A-list actors aligns with a confused script, two hundred million dollars, and a green light, resulting in a blockbuster motion picture.  Portals open at movie theaters all over the world, and huge amounts of money are sucked into the studio coffers.

Ender’s Game.  Given the success of this film, it’s not likely to end here, and that’s a good thing—both for fans of the book and movie-goers.

12 Years A Slave42, The Butler, and 12 Years a Slave were all based on true stories, resulting in well-meaning, but often uneven and frustrating films.  Maybe it’s time to see if an act of the imagination expressed in an out-and-out piece of fiction can encompass and do justice to the black experience in America.

Thanks for listening!  We’ll be back in three weeks.

  1. I’m honored to have had my first mention in the Cinema Misfits even if it is just as an audience for Lou’s wit. Like the rest of you guys and as I kept saying to Lou as we watched the movie I hated Thor. But damn if they didn’t give us two great cliffhanger endings. I thought Loki disguised as Odin was the most interesting part of the movie save Benicio del Toro showing up as the obscure character The Collector. guess Marvel and Disney willll be collecting my hard earned money for Guardians of the Galaxy.
