The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva and Chad Riley, welcome Eddie’s wife, Doris, to the show for the first time as they dance their way through the Mexican Land of the Dead with this week’s slightly spoilerish review of Pixar Animation Studios’ latest Disney collaboration, Coco (2017). The lively film is Pixar’s 19th feature length project and stars the voices of Benjamin Bratt, Gael García Bernal, Alanna Ubach, and first timer Anthony Gonzalez, along with some incredible cameos from well-known Latin actors such as Edward James Olmos, Gabriel Iglesias, Cheech Marin and others.

Directed by Zack Snyder, the film has a star-studded cast including Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Henry Cavill, Ray Fisher, Ciarán Hinds , Jeremy Irons, and others.

The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva and Chad Riley, The Filmlosophers tour the spaceways and spar with the gladiators of Sakaar in this week’s spoiler review of Marvel Studios’ latest release, Thor: Ragnarok (2017). Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban and Mark Ruffalo, the film marks the MCU debut of acclaimed New Zealand director Taika Waititi and has the gods of Asgard facing their own end at the hands of Marvel’s first female boss baddy, Hela.
Chock-full of teases, character deaths (it is Ragnarok, after all) and cinematic Easter eggs, the film moves the Asgardians’ storyline forward by leaps and bounds...and let’s not even talk about the cameos. This rollicking cosmic adventure truly has a lot to love, even after Thor’s hammer falls to pieces.
