    Movie Review: 'Captain Marvel'

    Movie Review: 'Captain Marvel'

    When a new Marvel Studios' movie releases, I, of course, have to be there front and center to watch the hell out of it. So here is my Movie Review of the first female superhero within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 'Captain Marvel'. 

    HIGHLIGHTS:

    * Who is [Captain Marvel](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Marvel_(Marvel_Comics))?
    * How does 'Captain Marvel' fit into the MCU? 
    * How accessible is ['Captain Marvel'](https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4154664/) if you haven't seen many MCU movies? 
    * I discuss how 'Captain Marvel' made me aware of a superhero trope that I didn't know existed before. 
    * My take on the strongest and most ridiculous criticism behind 'Captain Marvel'. 
    * [Brie Larson](https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0488953/?ref_=tt_cl_t1) is an absolute delight. 
    * We take [Samuel L. Jackson](https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000168/?ref_=tt_cl_t2) for granted way too much. 
    * [Ben Mendelsohn ](https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0578853/?ref_=tt_cl_t3)is the surprise take away after watching 'Captain Marvel'. 
    * I discuss what the most unnecessary aspect of 'Captain Marvel' was.

    One of the year's best Bollywood movies comes to us in the form of Gully Boy, based on true stories of one man's aspirations to be more than they are. Check out my Movie Review on this episode. 

    HIGHLIGHTS: 

    [](https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2395469/)

    * [Gully Boy ](https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2395469/)is not [8 Mile.](https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0298203/)
    * Gully Boy is propped up by amazing performances and brilliant writing. 

    * [Ranveer Singh](https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3828984/)

    you forget who Ranveer Singh is with this performance.

    * [Alia Bhatt](https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1017633/) 
    is wonderful in a role that's totally in her wheelhouse. 

    * [Kalki Koechlin](https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3202701/) 

    satisfactory in a brief appearance.

    * [Siddhant Chaturvedi](https://www.imdb.com/name/nm8237564/)

    The Epic Titans TV Review

    The Epic Titans TV Review

    DC Comics latest live action adaptation is the totally R-Rated Titans, which I totally watched and totally loved. So here is my Season 1 Review of Titans!

    HIGHLIGHTS:

    * Breaking down what the Titans were in comic books and how this adaptation happened. 

    * How appropriate is Titans for kids, and who is the intended audience? 

    * What is the premise behind [Titans](https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1043813/?ref_=nv_sr_1)?
    * How the marketing behind the series kind of screwed audience’s initial perception.

    * Why Titans works as DC & WB’s first R-Rated show featuring mainstream characters. 

    * How Titans is nothing like the CW-verse of DC TV Shows!

    * For more about the CW-verse shows check out [this episode](https://audioboom.com/posts/6612731-split-screen-podcast-episode-19-the-comic-book-based-tv-universe-of-the-cw) of the Split Screen Podcast. 
    * Brenton Thwaites is incredibly mature as Dick Grayson / Robin.

    * Anna Diop steals the show as Starfire.

    * Ryan Potter as Beast Boy is wonderful.

    * The world building in [Titans](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titans_(2018_TV_series)) is pretty insane.

    Remake Reviews: A Star Is Born. Repeatedly.

    I’m joined by Alisa Rivera to discuss one of the year's Oscar nominees, A Star Is Born, and it’s many remakes, even including a Bollywood version that is, interesting. I guess.

Must-listen for Bollywood fans

I’m a newcomer to Bollywood and still learning about the industry and the stars. The Hindi film industry puts out more than 1,500 movies each year so it can be daunting to sort through new releases and figure out what you want to see, not to mention which of the many (MANY) classic Bolly films to check out online. Host Shah Shahid does a great job of discussing the latest industry news while also throwing a spotlight on classics by comparing Bollywood remakes with the Hollywood films that inspired them. He balances humor with solid research on the film industry. He also features many guest podcasters, some of them part of the Desi diaspora like himself, others who are not Desi but have a passion for Indian film. This is a must-listen for Bollywood fans everywhere.

Great Podcast

The idea for this podcast is very clever. Bollywood remakes so many movies from other countries — and from other parts of India, too! — that it’s fun to hear how the reboots compare to the originals. Really enjoy listening to Shah and his guests!

A1! 5-stars! Amazing!

I don’t even listen to podcasts but I’m positive this one is great. I have my own podcast and this one is just so much better, based on the zero episodes I have listened to. My only complaint is the lack of me that has been invited to be on it, and the excess of Nipun and Baloch that have been on. Otherwise this podcast is perfect!
