Should I Watch That — Ep. 7


The SIWT guys are back with a vengeance this week, bringing along regular guests Josh (formerly Chronos), Chris (formerly Black Hulk), and SIWT-first-timer James (formerly Scalade). The crew waste no time getting into the swing of things, starting off with an informative Whatcha Been Watchin’ segment, followed by a heated debate on effective film trailers, what has movie theaters/directors feeling threatened, and concluding with our in-depth review of X-Men: First Class. The X-Men films haven’t had a good film since 2003…can this prequel change that?

The music for this episode is “Half the Man” by Threshold and the link to purchase his music is here: http://methodicdoubt.bandcamp.com/track/half-the-man-with-new-ending
