Every single person’s response to the situation around them in this poster is confusing.

The start of this podcast sounds amazing because it was recorded on a brand new very expensive mic. I neglected, however, to check how full the memory card was, so the latter half sounds dreadful due to it being the backup recorded on Niall’s phone. But hey, a backup is better than nothing, right?
Stick with us though as we get into some pretty meaty philosophical and moral questions that the film poses and we’re both pretty damn pleased with the quality of discourse in this one, if not the sound. Enjoy.

Film critic/radio host RJ Bayley and film writer Niall ‘Before Zod’ Heseltine return for an in-depth review of Steve Rogers first film in the Marvel Screen Universe (formerly the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that didn’t account for the TV shows, DID IT??).

Where did the spangly man in Avengers: Age of Ultron get his start? With quite a lot of ease, actually.

Up for discusson are Captain America’s particularly intricate clothing instructions, Red Skull’s employment choices of soldiers and architects, Hellraising Hollywood drinkers and Once Direction losing their member.

RJ Bayley and Niall ‘before Zod’ Heseltine are joined once more by their regular-but-not-regular-enough-to-be-in-the-intro cohort Jon Seymour to discuss Iron Man 2.

Is Stark’s second outing unfairly maligned as an inferior superhero flick. What do people in the know call the Marvel Cinematic Universe these day? What is RJB willing to do to show his admiration for RDJ? Where do the real roots of Whiplash lie?

Find out all this and more in the latest Marvel Vs. DC Movie Mash-Up.

Iron Man 1-3 Complete Collection [Blu-ray]

A mere 10 films in and we finally made it. We’ve finally arrived at the first film in what known back then as a Marvel Cinematic Universe (now better described as the Marvel Screen Universe). In this episode we remind ourselves of just how good the original really was, and I come up with a super-theory of just why Tony Stark is so bleeding intelligent.

Its not a lot, but at least we get to see it’s head. Looks like it’ll thankfully be a classic comic look, and suggests he’s made out of Iron Man technology.

Goats In The Machine is very proud to have taken up the gauntlet of the Marvel Vs. DC Movie Mash-UpJoining RJ Bayley on this super-heroic quest is new official Goat Niall Heseltine. 

The aim of the Marvel Vs. DC Movie Mash-Up is to take a look at nearly all of the cinematic representations of Superman and Batman (prior to DC staking its claim on a unified cinematic universe for its characters with Man of Steel) alongside Marvel’s pre-existing cinematic universe, from ‘Iron Man’ through to Age of Ultron. The whole thing will then culminate with the untitled Superman/Batman film in 2015.

The project is the brainchild of podfathers Chris Sykes and Bill Lawerence (you can visit their blog All of Whine and Space), who have compiled the following list:

Iron Man 3 must’ve felt like an inevitable bump back down to earth for Kevin Feige and the rest of Marvel Studios.

Phase 1 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was the grandest experiment in cinema. A whole studio based upon one shared cinematic universe, reliant on every film it releases being successful and that audiences would keep returning for every film to keep up with the overarching story. A support beam of this increasingly fragile construct was the fact that this was a unique and new venture in cinema, and that many comic fans had never thought they’d see their beloved shared universe of superheroes replicated on the silver screen. 2012’s The Avengers/Avengers Assemble was the the culmination of all this, a film starring all of the Marvel Studios heroes fighting a truly cataclysmic threat. And it carried it off with a bravado rarely seen.

So the prospect of following The Avengers with the now comparatively low-key single hero film would clearly be a daunting prospect. The challenge was to make something that didn’t feel like a step down from The Avengers but couldn’t deliver action on as grand a scale.

Director Jon Favreau’s (Iron Man, Iron Man 2) replacement, Shane Black has wisely decided to make the drama come from a personal journey Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) takes in Iron Man Three (yes, Three) instead of trying to vainly compete with the action of the previous film. (more…)
