A filmmaker would be the first to admit that sometimes, there are leaps of logic in their movies. The main response is, “It’s a movie.” The whole point is to show you things that are impossible and exciting, logic be dammed. But that’s not the place CinemaSins lives in.

This time though, it just so happens their latest video – Guardians of the Galaxy – is timed with the film’s director, totally independently, explaining one of the “sins” of Guardians of the Galaxy. That being the fact Peter Quill’s Walkman and the Awesome Mix Vol. 1 still works after 26 years. Below, see the video and read Gunn’s response – which also includes some clarification of the Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Avengers: Infinity War quotes. Read More »

Though I gave up on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D very early in season one, I hear from lots of people it gets better every single week. And this past week, it sounded like things took a potentially very significant step forward from even that. There were two specific references to upcoming and past Marvel Studios movies that may hint at what’s to come not only in Phase Two, but Phase Three. One possibly links to Guardians of the Galaxy and the other definitely suggests Inhumans. Read the Agents of SHIELD spoilers below. Read More »
