Squacklecast Episode 5 – “We’re Back! An Avenger’s Story”

This entry is part 5 of 32 in the series The Squacklecast

We’re back!  Sorry for the no-podcast-last-week thing.  Hope you didn’t miss us too much.  This week, the summer blockbuster The Avengers is talked about in great detail.

Strongly be advised that this week’s podcast has spoilers about The Avengers!!

My shoe is bigger than this car!  (Expendables 2 Trailer)

We touch upon the similarities The Avengers has with Battleship

and Transformers 3

They must be copying and pasting all those city-wide destruction scenes from each other.

Jeremy Renner was a good bad guy in The Avengers, but not as good at being bad as in SWAT.

Did YOU know there was another Hemsworth?  I didn’t.

Why I don’t like Mark Ruffalo as Hulk?  This quote:

Mark Ruffalo describes Bruce Banner as “a guy struggling with two sides of himself, the dark and the light; everything he does in his life is filtered through issues of control.” He furthermore describes Banner’s alter ego the Hulk as “a loose cannon – he’s the teammate none of them are sure they want, it’s like throwing a grenade into the middle of the group and hoping it turns out well!”

Great analysis of your character, now tell us something we don’t all know.  He’s a loose cannon?  For chrissakes can’t you think of something more interesting to say?

Eric Banna’s Hulk vs. Edward Norton’s The Incredible Hulk

Columbo vs. Perry Mason GO

That Thanos guy looks a lot like Darkseid.

Saving Captain America

Liam Neeson as Liam Neeson in The Avengers 2.

and also Maverick and Iceman.

It’s my money and I need it now!  Cause I’m BACK!

And if you don’t know the reference in the episode title, here it is.
