Ep 163: Mulan (2020) Review (Full Spoilers)

September 16, 2020

Wow. It's amazing. Disney has reached a brand new low. We didn't think it was possible, but they did it. We'd be impressed if we weren't so utterly disappointed. Scott and Mark Russell hop on the carousel of crappy live action Disney remakes one more time to review the new Mulan movie. But this is not a fun carousel. It's got rusty gears and splintery wooden horses. Bad times ahead, Capers!

Well it's about goddamn time! The long awaited finale to the X-Men franchise is here at last. Going up against that new Christopher Nolan movie. Hmm. I don't like it's chances. Still, it's up to Scott and Mark Russell to decide whether it was worth the wait! The answer: eh, kinda?

Ep 161: In Memory of Chadwick Boseman with Archit Tripathi and Lindiwe Ngwevela

September 3, 2020

In honour of a man who literally inspired millions, Scott, Archit, and Lindiwe talk about Chadwick Boseman's tragic passing, the BLM protests in Kenosha, and how far Black superheroes have come in film.

Recent events have left us all incredibly saddened, but it's important to remember to never give up hope, to never stop fighting for equality, and to always remember:

"In times of crisis, the wise build bridges while the foolish build barriers."

Ep 160: Project Power Review and DC FanDome Rundown with Michael McCabe (Full Spoilers)

August 26, 2020

God, that's a long title. But in fairness, there's a lot to cover in this week's PodCapers. Scott couldn't choose between reviewing Netflix's newest superhero movie and talking about the new DC FanDome reveals, so he just said "screw it" and did both. Thank god AP2HYC writer Michael McCabe is here to help him out. Good luck Michael, you're gonna need it!

Yes, we're really doing this. No, we don't care that everyone else has already talked about this movie. I mean, come on people, it's BIRDEMIC! Possibly the worst movie every made. And Scott has invited Jillian to join him in riffing this monstrosity. But guess what? You can too! Just play the movie when Scott tells you to and we can all share in the suffering! Yay!

Scott takes a look at the latest movie to trend on Netflix with an old Uni buddy and fellow writer...who's NOT Mark Russell? Jimbo Green has a few things to say about The Old Guard, and so does Scott. But can they agree on something, or does Scott just surround himself with people who contradict him?

Ep 156: Scott Re-Scripts The Little Mermaid

July 22, 2020

Hold on to yer barnacles boys, it's the big one! Scott tackles possibly his most HATED Disney film of all time, The Little Mermaid. He's ready to tear it apart and present his own version, but Jillian Diblasio has other ideas. Will Jillian finally admit defeat when it comes to these movies, or has Scott finally met his match? On another note, did that Priest have an erection? Am I going crazy, or was that real?
