It’s Time to Rewind: Season 1 week 3

Groundhog Day After Day After Day week 3

We made it through another week of shows. In the three episodes this week, we’ve got one returning guest and one new guest as we dive into days 6 through 8 of Groundhog Day. And if you haven’t yet, be sure to come on over and join the Facebook Group It’s Time to Rewind: A Time Loop Group and discuss the episodes as they come out, share memes, and discuss new and old time loop movies or TV shows. But for now, let’s get to this week’s episodes.

Flora & Ulysses

Flora & Ulysses 2021

I’ve been keeping my streaming subscriptions down by only subscribing to two of them and rotating them every few months. It’s been a while since we’ve had Disney+, I let it lapse right before the Mandalorian season 2 finale. So now with three whole MCU series to catch up with, I figured it was a good time to get it back and catch up with everything. And meanwhile, they also released two different kid-friendly superhero movies on there. Look for my review of the Secret Society of Second Born Royals within the next couple weeks. But I thought this one sounded a little more tolerable so I gave it a shot. I knew going into it that it was mostly a movie about a family coming together and just a little bit about a superhero squirrel. It actually made me laugh pretty hard several times, but at the same time it was full of family movie cliches that felt pretty tired. Once again, since this is a relatively current movie, there are spoilers ahead, though as I mentioned, most of them are pretty obvious.

It’s Time to Rewind: Season 1 week 2

Groundhog Day After Day After Day week 2

It’s been a fun second week of my new podcast It’s Time to Rewind and I hope you give it a listen. We’ve got three new episodes for you and two new guests as we get into some of the shorter loops of Groundhog Day so it made sense to bring back a guest to talk about a few related days in a row. Also, if you haven’t checked out the Facebook Group It’s Time to Rewind: A Time Loop Group I’d love it if you joined to discuss the podcast, share time loop memes, or discuss new or past time loop movies, episodes, or novels and short stories. But let’s get into this week’s episodes, shall we?

Superhero Podcast Review: 5 Minutes of Mystery

I’m back once again with another superhero podcast review. I’m still digging into the various Movies by Minutes community and while I’m not specifically going directly after all of the various ones that cover superhero movies and franchises, I went to this one for a couple reasons. One was that the host’s other project was Groundhog Minute which I binged through in preparation of the first season of It’s Time to Rewind, and the other was that it was focused on a single movie rather than an entire franchise. There are still a few others that I will likely eventually cover here. And if you’re new to this podcast review series I go through the basics of the podcast from a superhero movie perspective and I offer my final rating where I either subscribe, unsubscribe, or listen to selected episodes. And if you do a podcast or know of a podcast that might be good for a review here, be sure to let me know in the comments.

Black Widow

Black Widow 2021

First off I just have to start out with holy crap it’s good to be back in a movie theater. Granted things are very different than they were when I saw Birds of Prey which I’m pretty sure was the last movie that I saw in theaters. We just survived a pandemic, at least everyone who has decided to get vaccinated has survived a pandemic but I won’t go further down that discussion right now. I’m living in the Atlanta suburbs after spending the previous six years in the Chicago suburbs, and this is the first Marvel movie to come out since Spider-Man: Far From Home back in the summer of 2019. So yeah, things are quite a bit different. But kicking off the theater going with the latest MCU movie felt like falling back into old patterns. It was definitely enjoyable with great action beats and enjoyable humor, but the climax felt rather uninspired and I just wish they could have done something a little bit different than falling right back into the MCU formula that I often like to think doesn’t really exist. And as this is the latest MCU movie, if you haven’t seen it yet from here on out there may be spoilers so be warned.

It’s Time to Rewind Season 1 Episode 1

Groundhog Day After Day After Day #1

I’m back with another episode of my new podcast. For today’s episode we are looking at Phil’s first Groundhog day and my guest is Paul from Blokebusters and the loop we are looking at starts at 7 minutes and 26 seconds with a shot of the Cherry Street Inn and Phil Conners waking up to Sonny and Cher’s “I Got You Babe” and ends at 18 minutes and 17 seconds with Phil getting out of a cold shower and Ms. Lancaster saying that “of course there wouldn’t be any hot water today.”

The Old Guard

The Old Guard 2020

This has been on my “to watch next” list for a very long time even though it did completely pass me by when it came out last year. While I did read that this was a popular movie when it was released on Netflix, I never really got a feel for how well people enjoyed it and it never really hit my radar. But when I did finally watch the trailer, I was very interested. I have generally enjoyed everything that Charlize Theron has done even when she’s been in some not great movies. Despite Aeon Flux being awful and Snow White and the Huntsman not being that great, Theron was great in them and Atomic Blonde was one of my favorite comic book movies of the year it came out. There are definitely a few flaws throughout this movie, but overall I quite enjoyed it and I’m glad that a sequel is in the works to start filming early next year. And while this movie is over a year old, it’s still relatively new so here’s your spoiler warning.

Superhero Podcast Review: Reel Comic Heroes

While I have decided to forego doing random searches for superhero related podcasts to review, when I happen to discover one that I hadn’t reviewed before while listening to various podcasts on my own I thought that it doesn’t hurt to give it a proper review here on my site. I discovered this podcast as I have started going through more Movies by Minutes podcasts and the hosts of this podcast have appeared on the Groundhog Minute podcast. If you’re not familiar with my style of reviews for this series, I give you the basics of the podcast, a brief review, and my own personal rating based on whether or not I decide to: subscribe, unsubscribe, or listen to selected episodes. That said, I’m still happy to accept submissions if you host or listen to a superhero or comic book movie podcast that you think I should review, leave me a comment and I will take a look at it.
