Ep413: Solve for X

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast assembles Earth's Mightiest Critics for a look at the 90th comic-book movie of the summer, Dark Phoenix! Simon Kinberg's somnambular remake of X-Men 3: The Last Stand is so head-scratchingly bone-headed that nobody on the round table could fathom how it got made.

Listen in as David Fowlie of Keeping it Reel, Emmanuel Noisette of Eman's Movie Reviews, and Don Shanahan of Every Movie Has a Lesson talk about all the bad motivations, fake feminism, and sloppy staging that makes Fox's last official X-movie a prime candidate for Disney-Marvel's evolutionary experiments!

As a bonus, Ian and David also talk about Ron Howard's phenomenal new documentary, Pavarotti, which opens to day in limited release. Lastly, listen in for details on a special screening of Woman at War this Monday, and find out how you can follow Ian (@kickseat) on an epic 20-hour movie critic adventure!

Episode 413 reeeeeally misses Brett Ratner's directorial finesse!
