Pop! Pop! Ep. 37 – X-Men: Dark Phoenix & Black Mirror Season 5 Review

What’s up nerds! I bet you’re surprised by this semi-regular schedule, aren’t you? This week on Pop! Pop! the guys have a really good laugh at the Dceu because their new show Swamp Thing already got canceled and they’ve literally only aired the pilot. Who are they, Firefly!? Too soon, I know. Looks like that DC streaming platform isn’t going to last very long… *crickets*.

The next best thing to happen this week is the season 5 debut of Black Mirror! From Miley Cyrus to Anthony Mackie, Mantis (Pom Klementieff) to Toper Grace in a man-bun, the guys break down what they did and didn’t like about the latest installation of the celebrated anthology series.

This episode doesn’t have a lot of nerd news because it’s really about one thing: X-Men: Dark Phoenix. No one on this podcast has ever been shy about their hatred for this movie…

New Captive State Trailer Brings a First Look at Alien Invaders

New Captive State Trailer Brings a First Look at Alien Invaders
The first full-length trailer for Captive State has been released and it looks intense. John Goodman and Ashton Sanders star in the gritty political sci-fi movie, which looks incredibly dark and compelling. Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) directed the movie and it takes place in Chicago, ten years after an occupation by an extraterrestrial force, but it doesn't focus on one side of the conflict. Instead it looks at those who decide to collaborate with the aliens and those who do not. It looks like it's a lot tougher for the dissidents than it is for the collaborators as seen in the trailer.

Ashton Sanders' Gabriel character in Captive State can be seen asking for a lawyer after being detained, but John Goodman's character lets him know that things don't work like that anymore since the aliens arrived on the scene. Gabriel is being torn in

Sophie Turner says X-Men: Dark Phoenix is “such a departure” from X-Men: Apocalypse

Earlier this year 20th Century Fox announced that it has pushed back the release of X-Men: Dark Phoenix to February 2019, with director Simon Kinberg and the cast set to reunite later this year for a round of reshoots.

Speaking to Digital Spy, actress Sophie Turner – who portrays Jean Grey/The Phoenix – played down the extent of the reshoots, stating that: “I think it’s just a few bits and bobs, reshoot-wise. To be honest, I don’t even know what we’re reshooting at the moment. So I couldn’t really tell you much about that one.”

Turner also echoed previous comments from her cast mates that Dark Phoenix will place a much greater emphasis on character and drama, and that its tone is “such a departure” from 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

“This movie is kind of a lot more emotion-based, much more grounded. There are, of course, those supernatural elements,

1987: Brenda Dickson was honored.

2007: Guiding Light's Tammy and Jonathan were married."Whoever wishes to foresee the future must consult the past; for human events ever resemble those of preceding times. This arises from the fact that they are produced by men who ever have been, and ever shall be, animated by the same passions, and thus they necessarily have the same results."

‘Terra Nova’ is boring

  • doorQ.com
I’ve been accused of being a curmudgeon, and not happy unless I can complain about something. I am very aware, at times, that I can be very critical of things like movies and TV shows that insult my intelligence, but I don’t think that makes me a curmudgeon. To me, it makes me more aware of the manipulation by these folks who run the studios that if they cart out a few explosions and add a few sex scenes, I’ll not notice their stories are so paint-by-number.

So, despite knowing the track record of Brannon Braga (Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Enterprise) and his corporate utopian views, I watched Terra Nova each week to see if this sci fi adventure show had anything to offer beyond the sci fi lite that the cable network the SyFy Channel offers viewers.

I do think the premise is interesting, showing
