DMHEp171CoverArt.jpg

In a shocking turn of events we have a live-action Disney remake to review this week as THE LION KING returns to the big screen looking quite a bit different but sounded very very familiar. Has Favreau made another standout in the live-action column for Disney? Much to discuss as we are joined by our NEWEST official member of the DMH team, Adam Corbett and regular guest, Nick Groome!!

Before we get into that though we have a slew of announcements to get into as this year’s San Diego Comic-Con brought the info hammer down with MARVEL Studios letting loose Phase 4 with some big surprises and more details towards other known incoming projects. Lots to do, lots to cover, LETS GO!!

DMHEp142CoverArt.jpg

Toy Story Land opened a little over a week ago so me and Melyssa are ready to discuss our impressions of the new addition to Hollywood Studios.  We have had the opportunity to visit the land during the morning, at night and even before the rest of the park opened during a special event with the Park Blogs team.  With all of that in place it is ready to speak what we feel works and maybe what does not.  Following that we all review the latest offering from Marvel Studios as ANT-MAN AND WASP hit theaters.

Mandatory Marvel - What to Watch for Infinity War

With Infinity War coming up fast there may be a lot for some folks to catch up on to enjoy the spectacle.  With 18 total films leading up to the first part of the grand finale for the current MCU, what films MUST you see in order to be up to date for what you are about to see.  Not everyone has the time to complete the entire set, so what films should you invest the time into?  

For me, this question does not get answered by knowing what the infinity stones are.  It does state it in the films, to lesser and greater degrees, what stone does what but not extremely well.  Some folks, as followers of the books, are able to connect what is what but I cannot imagine Infinity War does not goes full exposition for a scene and spell out what does which.  

For me, caring about the players matters more than knowing that the Tesseract is.   Knowing that more than likely it's with Loki does not matter ½ as much as knowing WHO Loki is and the relationship with his brother Thor.  Same towards the relationships between Widow and Hawkeye, Bucky and Cap, and Cap and Stark.  

So with that in mind, here are my Mandatory Marvel films in order of release.  

iron_man_ver3.jpg

IRON MAN - It all started here and so should you.  You need to understand Tony to be invested in what follows for the character.  The post-credit scene here started a wave that has been going ever since.  It’s massive.  It’s mandatory.  

thor-movie-poster.jpg

THOR - To know Thor is to know Loki and you need that.  You also get introduced to the "magic as science" idea in the MCU which is important.  Really though, you need to learn of Thor and Loki because their relationship possibly impacts the MCU greater than any other.  

captain-america-poster_510.jpg

CAPTAIN AMERICA : THE FIRST AVENGER - Cap is the heart of the MCU and you need to recognize the line “I can do this all day”.  It encapsulates Captain America.  You also meet two others who are quite important.  One being the woman who affects Cap more than any other and his best friend Bucky who is a major player in later films.  We also get our first infinity stone.  

2012_Avengers_Poster.jpg

MARVELS THE AVENGER - The first team up is the best and it has a lot of important players introduced that make a larger impact further down the line.  We meet future threats, present conflicts of personality and show how the Avengers can fail AND succeed as a team.  

Captain_America_The_Winter_Soldier_poster_005.jpg

CAPTAIN AMERICA : THE WINTER SOLDIER - This is the best film in the MCU and therefore is a must.  Again, Cap is the heart of the series and this continues his path.  It does not have larger implications for Infinity stones and all the better for it.  It also sets the table for Civil War which is massive going forward due to what it does to the team of The Avengers.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY - We see another Infinity Stone here and are introduced to what will undoubtedly be large figures in the Infinity film.  From The Collector and what he shares in a bit of exposition to the team of the Guardians itself, this is a must see.  

AvengersUltron.jpg

AVENGERS : AGE OF ULTRON - It’s a messy film that spreads itself too thin and has a toothless villain but we see the cracks in the Avengers team widen.  We also meet Vision who is vital going forward if the trailer is to be believed.  James Spader is great as Ultron but they really make him inneffective.  

Captain_America_Civil_War_teaser_1_promotional_poster.jpg

CAPTAIN AMERICA : CIVIL WAR - The full explosion of differing beliefs and the introduction of Black Panther is more than enough to explain why this is a must see.  It does great work on character relationships and leaves us wondering where we go from here.  

doctor-strange-marvel-movie-poster.jpg

DOCTOR STRANGE - Actual magic is introduced into the MCU.  Not "science we do not understand", actual magic.  We meet a major cog in the future of the MCU in the good Doctor and are introduced to the Time Gem.  Also, Wong.  Wong is awesome.  

thorRagnarok.jpg

THOR : RAGNAROK - You need to understand Thor and Loki.  It also leads up to the (possible) opening scene of Infinity War.  Jeff Goldblum is in this.  So, see it.

The obvious missing piece of the puzzle here is the upcoming BLACK PANTHER.  I will update this after its release.  We are still missing one gem...

As a closing thought, you may wonder why no THOR : THE DARK WORLD since it also introduces an Infinity Gem.  I just do not feel it's needed.  Trust me, we will get full exposition on what gem affects what as Thanos makes the rounds.  Their power will be displayed individually to inform a larger audience what the hell is going on.  

Disney Magic Hour Episode #113 - EPCOT World Showcase Showdown

DMHEp113CoverArt.jpg

EPCOT's World Showcase has so much to see, hear and eat that you can spend days discovering something new. In classic bracket action we pit these pavilions up against one another to see what land reigns supreme when you measure the landscape, music, food and attractions of each pavilion.  Along with that we discuss all the STAR WARS news that hit this week towards a new trilogy and live action TV series.  Lots to do! Lets go! It's showtime!
