Avengers: Infinity War

This is it! Infinity War has arrived - and the 'Who Shot Ya?' crew is ready. Drea Clark is on the program once again to discuss the biggest movie ever released, Avengers: Infinity War. They try to keep the SPOILERS to a minimum - while still taking time to ponder how Thanos' chin looks like a nutsack. They discuss how Marvel movies operate more like comic books than standard films. Plus, Ricky, Drea, April, and Alonso think up characters that they would add to the Avengers team from different film genres (Heads up, one of the genres is James Cameron movies). Plus, as always, we have our staff picks.

In news, Mark Ruffalo accidentally spoiled Avengers: Infinity War, Steven Spielberg reveals how Robin Williams helped him get through shooting Schindler's List, and Tom Cruise jumped out of a plane 106 times.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - Andre The Giant
Drea - Colossal
April - The 12th Man
Alonso - RBG

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!

Next week we're discussing Overboard

With Alonso Duralde, April Wolfe, Drea Clark and Ricky Carmona.

This week, Guy Branum, Karen Tongson and Margaret Wappler are joined by Andrew Ti, host of the “Yo, Is This Racist?” podcast. They take a look at HBO’s West World, and sci fi narratives that explore robots with feelings. Season Two just got started and the team is fairly certain it will be just as complicated as the first.

Karen is all about Alexis Bledel in Handmaid’s Tale Season 2, even though it puts a character she cares about through even more difficulties. Margaret and Guy are all about Michelle Wolf’s routine at The White House Correspondent’s Dinner and are very confused about the outrage that’s surrounded it. Andrew is all about Avengers: Infinity War even though he didn’t quite understand the storytelling subtleties of the plot.

The panel will their discuss what they think of West World, its convoluted plot and the idea of sentient robots having feelings.

With Karen Tongson, Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler and Andrew Ti.

That’s My Jam:

Karen Tongson - Maroon 5, SZA - What Lovers Do

Andrew Ti - The Higher Brother - Made in China

Margaret Wappler - The Pointer Sisters - Automatic.

Guy Branum Kacey Musgraves - High Horse

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to our Spotify playlists.
