Film Actually Ep084 – The Road To The Avengers

Hosts: David McVay & Josh Philpott

This week David & Josh do something a little different, with The Avengers about to hit cinemas, they decide to take a trip down memory lane and discuss the five films (Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger) leading up to the ultimate team up film. The usual format will return next week for a full review of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers. However, we couldn’t do a Film Actually without a brand new Lists of Five – Five Skippable Superhero Movies. Film Actually is the official movie podcast of geekactually.com.

The news section is now officially it’s own show called Film Actually News. Look for it on the feed because it is loud, fast and under thirty minutes… or your money back.

Lists of Five

This week our Lists of Five: Five Skippable Superhero Movies. With all the hype around The Avengers and superhero movies in general, it is easy to forget that superhero movies aren’t always that great, here are five examples of superhero movies that you can just skip. We have included tele movies in the lists this week.
Just a reminder, because we never like to just make things easy on ourselves, our lists are not necessarily top five lists, they are more or a less a list of film recommendations within the theme of the list.

    Great podcast guys, one of my favourites. Great backgroud info, great to get us in the mood for the avengers. I noticed David said his favourite so far was Captain America. I thought whats my favourite… hmm i would say iron man. It just set a new stage for comic book films, no one expected something that good for marvels first go at producing movies(we did hope). Still holds a special place in my heart, though the personal story of captain america as it was protrayed in the movie was brilliant.
