AwardsWatch Podcast #181: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ review, our Top 5 comic book based movies
On episode 181 of The AwardsWatch Podcast, AwardsWatch Executive Editor Ryan McQuade is joined by AwardsWatch contributors Sophia Ciminello and Dan Bayer to talk about the latest film in the MCU, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, give out their Top 5 Comic Book Movies.
Coming off the heels of last week’s Summer Box Office Draft, a major trailer release that shifted the focus for film fans this week as the first trailer for Dune Part Two. The gang talked about it, what they liked and didn’t like about it, then shifted their focus to the Tony nominations, which were announced earlier in the week. Dan, with a little help from Sophia, broke down the nominations, their favorites of the nominees and who were the biggest snubs.
After that, Ryan and Sophia reviewed Guardians, talking about why they think it was a good time a theater, while also discussing a little why it underperformed at the box office domestically this past weekend. Once they are done talking about the film, the team gives out their Top 5 Comic Book Movies, which included not just comic book superhero films, but films that originated from graphic novels and mangas. Some of these titles included The Dark Knight, The Rocketeer, Josie and the Pussycats, Road to Perdition, X2, Edge of Tomorrow, and so many more, making for a fantastic conversation.
Tell us in the comments and on our social media pages what you think of each team’s picks and who you think is going to win.
