    2020 has brought us a worldwide plague and literal murder hornets, but in what’s the surest sign that the world is about to end, Warner Bros. has confirmed the impending release of the long-rumored, presumed-mythical Zack Snyder cut of 2017’s JUSTICE LEAGUE. How did the infamous flop get its second chance via the new HBO Max streaming platform? In this supersized episode we parse the details and make some predictions about what to expect when it hits next year. Plus: Henry Cavill returns as Superman! The final TENET trailer!

    The MovieFilm Commentary Track: Avengers: Age of Ultron

Listen in for behind-the-scenes stories, comic book factoids, and appreciation for the many ways the second Avengers epic has taken on greater resonance in the five years since its release.

My #1 Podcast

I am someone who really enjoys podcasts and this is by far the best. The relationship between Zaki and Brian is the glue that holds this podcast together and is my favorite thing about it. Hearing Zaki talking about his kids and his kid who sides with the villains is hilarious. Drunk Spielberg is a hilarious part of the show and I always look forward to hearing that pop up. With this virus going on, this podcast is really capable of keeping you going and making you laugh in this unfunny time. I love this podcast and Zaki and Brian as well. Keep up the good work gentlemen!

#1 Priority Podcast

There are a lot of reviews on here telling you that Zaki and Brian are knowledgeable, engaging, and funny, and rather than write a review that says that all over again, I wanted to put it a different way: I listen to 30 different podcasts each week during my long Bay Area commute, and this podcast skips to the head of the queue in front of any other.

Fun and Informational

The commentary track episodes are a fantastic way in which to re-experience so many of the films that have captured my imagination, from classic 80s films to modern blockbusters. With a right mix of nostalgia, trivia, humor, and impressive film knowledge, the hosts create a wonderful environment to celebrate, re-examine, and critique.
