Episode 048 – X-Men: Banal Schlockpocalypse

 

X-Men: Apocalypse is proving to be the second comic book film of 2016 that is divisive between both critics and fans, and many on both sides of the line are standing by slinging mud back and forth already. Again, the chorus of “give the rights back to Marvel” has begun, and with this being the last film in the trilogy that started with First Class, what is the future of FOX’s mutant franchise? We’ll weigh in with our spoiler-filled review of Apocalypse as we look to what comes next.

One year of the Epic Film Guys podcast is quickly approaching! Our 52nd weekly episode will arrive on June 23rd, and we’ll be dedicating our June 30th episode to YOU, the fans. That means it is time once again for a FAN CELEBRATION! All month long we’ll be taking questions from you, and we’ll answer them all for the one-year celebration! You have a few different ways of reaching us- you can either record your questions directly and upload them to a virtual drive and send them our way, or you can email us, message us on twitter/facebook/instagram, or however else you can get them to us. The only stipulation: NO FILM QUESTIONS! This will give us a chance to let you get to know more about us, and if you’re an avid listener, you know where we stand on most things film. Get those questions to us by June 27th to be included in the show!

It’s your chance to WIN with the Epic Film Guys! Tonight, we’ve got TWO giveaways for you, film fans! Tonight’s grand prize is a $25 AMC movie gift card!
