Marvel’s Doctor Strange - Your IDENTITY Matters

April 3, 2017

Arrogance, identity, and redemption--the journey of Doctor Strange.

Jay Sherer and Sam Welbaum review and discuss Scott Derrickson's film Doctor Strange. They start with a spoiler-free review, and then dig into some of the deeper themes. Questions posed by Doctor Strange, include:

  • Steven Strange is an arrogant bastard, but he’s also the best surgeon in the world. What’s the relationship between arrogance and success? What rules govern that relationship?
  • This movie has quite a bit to say about identity. What do you think the movie tells us about our identity? What can you draw out of it?
  • What rules govern this multiverse and the multiple dimensions that are referenced here?
  • “Healing through belief? I do not believe in fairytales. We are made of matter, and nothing more. There’s no such thing as spirit!” Strange says. And then he’s punched into the Astral plane and the multiverse. What do you think the relationship between the “spirit” or “soul” and the Astral Dimension?
  • “I have to surrender to control it? That doesn’t make sense!” Are we supposed to surrender, or should we work harder?
  • Doctor Strange. The Matrix. Inception. These are all fanciful films, but they draw on the perceived reality of our own experiences. How do you think all these films are related?
  • Kaecilius, The Ancient One, and Mordo all have different perspectives on “breaking the natural law.” What does it mean to “break the natural law"? Which character’s perspective do you side with? Why?
  • The Ancient One, at one point in the movie, turns to Steven Strange, and asks, “Who are you in this vast multiverse?” How would you answer that same question?

Batman v. Superman - The Worst Batman of All Time…

March 26, 2017

...is George Clooney. But, Batfleck is AWESOME (at least according to Daryl and Jay).

Jay Sherer, Daryl Smith, and Tim Posada review Zack Snyder's film Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (both editions)They start with a spoiler-free review, and then dig into some of the deeper themes. Questions posed by Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, include:

  • How do you feel about Superman's godhood being a major theme of this film?
  • Did the actors portray their characters well? What do you think about Amy Adams, Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, and Jeremy Irons?
  • What do you think Lex believes about Superman? What about Bruce? What’s behind those beliefs? Why do they both feel the way they do about Superman and what’s driving their actions?
  • There are multiple views on evil expressed throughout the film. What do you think Zack Snyder feels about evil? Do you agree with him?
  • The DC team (in BvS) has chosen to use the progressive characters (meaning more recent interpretations of the characters) while Marvel has gravitated toward classic or traditional versions of their characters. Which take do you prefer? Why? And do you think the characters from BvS work?

Stranger Things: Season 1 - String Theory, D&D, and Hot Pink Tank Tops

March 19, 2017

Sam Welbaum explains String Theory and Pantheism while Jay Sherer (the Story Geeks host) and Isaac Johnson attempt to follow along...

Jay, Sam, and Isaac review the Duffer Brother's Netflix series Stranger Things, Season 1! They start with a spoiler-free review, and then dig into some of the deeper themes. Questions posed by Stranger Things, Season 1, include:

  • Based on what you know of the Upside Down and the Demogorgon, what do you think is going on? Is this an alternate dimension? And alternate timeline? A different spiritual plane?
  • We all grew up in the 80s. Let’s compare our own experiences in the 80s and compare that to the show’s portrayal of the 80s. How did this show speak to your own experience? And, what is it missing?
  • Who’s your favorite character? Why?
  • Where do you think the story is headed and what do you hope to see in Season 2?

The Dark Knight Rises - Bane, the Hopeless Romantic?

March 12, 2017

Best movie ending ever? Daryl thinks so!

Daryl Smith hosts again with Jay Sherer as this week's guest (role reversal!). They review Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises to complete the Nolan Batman trilogy, and then they dig deeper to ask some important questions about the story.

First up, their review--Quality, Story Depth, and Likelihood to Refer it to others. And here are some of the deeper questions:

  • Should Gordon have lied about Harvey Dent? What are the implications of his lie?
  • "There is no despair without hope." - Bane. What does hope look like for Nolan's characters?
  • Nolan has said the theme of this movie is pain. How does each character experience pain?
  • Who's your favorite character from this film?
