    Minute One Hundred Forty Three: From The Final Climactic Beats in Alan Silvestri’s Amazing Theme to The Studio Logos... With a Little Stop at Shawarma Palace in BetweenMike Gravagno from The Superhero Show Show and Movie of the Year joins us in this episode!
    In the one-hundred-forty-third and final minute of The Avengers...The credits finally come to an end, but not before we get to talk about the MPAA film numbers. We also ponder when Dolby Atmos started up, and sure enough it was 2012. Not in time for this film unfortunately. 
    What we’re really here for, though, is shawarma. Shawarma Palace. This glorious post-credit sequence shifted the tone of post-credit sequences and allowed later filmmakers to be goofy with them from time to time. We’re fans. We talk about each of the characters and even reveal why Chris Evans is being so still throughout. Tune in!

    Minute One Hundred Forty Two: From The Rest of the Visual Effects Thank You List to The Start of the Logos.The TruStory FM Entertainment Podcast Network’s own Justin Jaeger joins us in this episode!
    In the one-hundred-forty-second minute of The Avengers...We continue our journey through the credits. We get all 214 people who worked on the stereoscopic conversion for this film, which leads to a fun conversation about going to 3D movies. We talk a bit about the main title and the iconic Avengers logo. There’s also 20 people credited as helping with the celebration montage, which is cool. We talk about Alan Silvestri, about the four songs in the film, including one we completely missed when Tony and Pepper are first in Stark Tower. We talk a bit about the non-endorsement by NASA at the end, and we each pick one person to talk about. JJ picks Depth Lead Katherine Rodtsbrooks (now Katherine Renee Jones) who was involved in the 3D conversion. Pete picks Craig Kyle, a comic book artist and executive producer given special thanks. Andy picks Steve Boeddecker, a sound designer at Skywalker Sound. Lots of great conversation! Tune in!

    Minute One Hundred Forty One: From The 34 Lighting TDs•Shader Writers at Weta Digital to The First Six of the Visual Effects ThanksThe TruStory FM Entertainment Podcast Network’s own Steve Sarmento joins us in this episode!
    In the one-hundred-forty-first minute of The Avengers...We’re knee deep in credits for the visual effects teams who worked on this movie. We look at how many people are credited with each team here, and then we jump into our names that we each picked. Steve picked the brothers Greg and Colin Strause, who run [hy*drau”lx], which spurs on a chat about the world of VFX right now, particularly with the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes going on. From there, Andy talks about Joel Gerlach who worked as a VFX artist at Luma Pictures on this film, but has since gone on to create his own VFX company. Pete closes things out with a chat about Michael Corcoran, but we’re still not sure where he’s actually credited in this film. Regardless, he worked on creature effects, so we assume that means the Chitauri? Or maybe he was responsible for the exploding leviathan eyeball! And where would we be if we didn’t bring up Soundgarden one last time? Tune in!

Challenging and Conversational

You wouldn’t think a single minute would go folks much to talk about, but, lo and behold, the challenge is real. So is the engaging conversation! Well done, gentlemen! I admire your effort.

Great Analysis, But Remember it's a Minute at a Time

Fun show, and I love the insights. Sometimes it gets a bit navel-gazing when they forget the context that it's a minute out of a full movie, but they're usually pretty good about calling themselves out. The current season (Avengers 1) has felt a little weird though. They seem really reluctant to praise Whedon by name, but I don't get it. He can be a repugnant human who shouldn't be given more jobs, but also a talented filmmaker and writer. [Kermit drinking tea gif]

Great except the criminal wokeism

Gentlemen, I get it, it’s 2023, and wokeism is mandatory, but cmon! No one’s offended by writing black widow in a sex positive tone.
