31: The Imagination of Hope

Tomorrowland.

In 1955 Walt Disney opened the Tomorrowland park at Disneyland in California. It was meant to be a beacon of hope for generations to come by showing how far our imaginations and ingenuity can take us.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Mike Schindler and new recruit Bruce Gibson to talk about Brad Bird's Tomorrowland. We discuss our first impressions, Disney's imagination station, fighting cynicism, pulling the heart strings, Hugh Laurie, why we invite, originality problems and our final thoughts.

29: The Hulk Whisperer

Avengers: Age of Ultron.

In 2012 Marvel did something with it’s heroes that had not yet been seen from either of the two major comic companies, it put its biggest superhero team on screen, together. It had one of the biggest opening weekends in box office history and is now considered a classic. The question became, “Can you ever top this?” 

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is once again joined by Marvel enthusiasts Andi VanderKolk and Daniel Proulx to talk about Age of Ultron. We discuss how we felt as we left the theater, making sense of the story, needing more time, Tony tapping out, Tony and Steve, destruction in comic book movies, the idea that it's all connected, Black Widow, new Avengers, hammer time, the villain, our Marvel film rankings and our ratings.
