Talking Age of Ultron and What The General Public Expects From Blockbusters These Days.
Earlier this week, we here at Central Track kicked off a new podcasting initiative with the launch of our new content partnership with TC Fleming and Jake Kemp's It's Just Banter podcast. Today, we happily welcome an offshoot of that same brand to our growing podcasting fold with the debut episode of Fleming's oh-so-fittingly-named TC's Movie Podcast. It's Just Banter fans will be comforted to know that Kemp joins Fleming in this initial go. If you like what you hear, head here to subscribe to TC's Movie Podcast on iTunes. Or just make a note in your phone calendars to check back in with us each Friday to hear a new episode. Either way, really.
Spoiler alert: This week, guest co-host Jake Kemp and I just come out and acknowledge how less-than-impressed we were with Avengers: Age of Ultron — and, just maybe, blockbuster fight scenes in general.
When, we wonder, will the madness stop?
From there, we openly ponder why people even see these films in the first place. Or, well, Jake does. As for me? I try my best to provide him with a few rationalizations. It's an uphill battle, even though Jake has been taking in more popular culture of late and has recently become hooked on Game of Thrones. His argument essentially boils down to the fact that this is not that. And he even has a fairly compelling argument as to why.
