UNT 138: Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

Welcome to the Multiverse, where anything and everything is possible! Kind of. Come with us on our latest journey as we review Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. What happens when the director of Evil Dead and Darkman gets to make a follow up movie to not only the original Doctor Strange film, but also WandaVision? You get Bruce Campbell, that’s what. You also get an unusual movie full of unique visuals and characters faster than you can say, ‘fan service’. So join us and special...


UNT 137: Doctor Strange (2016)

With the Multiverse of Madness on its way, we used the power of the Time Stone to go back and correct a mistake to finally review the MCU movie from 2016, Doctor Strange. Benedict Cumberbatch and Stephen Strange have since become a mainstay in the MCU, but this is where it all started. We covered sorcerers, sling rings, the difference between dimensions, realities and universes, as well as taking a look to the future to what the new Doctor Strange film might unlock. Most of all, we want...


UNT 136: The Batman

Yet another comic book reboot has landed upon us, but is this one any good? Opinions are mixed, but we decided to dive cowl-first into The Batman. A new psychopathic version of The Riddler... an obsessive, detective Batman... non-Catwoman Selina Kyle and more flying rats that you can poke a Batarang at, this movie was so full of comic book lore, we spent almost the full runtime discussing it. So before you join the ‘ugly actors need roles too’ picket line, chill out at the Iceberg Lounge and...


UNT 135: Peacemaker

Before we return to Gotham, it’s time to grab your helmet and hug your eagle as we take a look at the new DC / HBO series: Peacemaker. What do you do if you’re a former pro-wrestler looking to nab a breakout role in a hit comic book franchise? Apparently, you go to James Gunn. We discussed this aspect of John Cena’s new superhero career as well as falling into many of our usual tangents, including what exactly makes a butterfly a butterfly, how best to create an opening titles sequence for...


UNT 134: The Book Of Boba Fett

Come with us as we return to that galaxy far, far away and open up The Book of Boba Fett. Boba Fett has always held a special place in many Star Wars fans’ hearts, and rumors of his own live-action story has been around longer than the sandpeople have roamed the desert. So with Season One now concluded, we took a closer look at this legendary bounty hunter and his recent adventures. Fennec! Rancors! Runaway trains! Jedi! The Dark Saber! Thundercat! Cobb Vanth! Flashdance! And the live action...


UNT 133: Cobra Kai Season 4

Season 4 of Cobra Kai has come and gone, so while we wait for certain bounty hunters and peacemakers to complete their seasons, we took a look at the most recent entry into everyone’s favorite karate saga. In a season marked by shades of gray, we pondered which new characters we found entertaining, which old rivalries may have become stale, and also dared to ask: does every character on this show need a redemption arc? Find out the answers and more as we return to the blue mats to strike...


UNT 132: Hawkeye

The MCU train just keeps on rolling, this time with another Disney+ series, Hawkeye. So grab your quiver of trick arrows and get ready to dive in… While we break in the New Year by taking a closer look at nobody’s favorite Avenger, we got a few pleasant surprises. Clint Barton deals with the aftermath of Endgame as well as several other PTSD-inducing moments, all while struggling to mentor a headstrong, young sidekick. If you like LARPing, this might not be the podcast for you, but rest...


UNT 131: Spider-Man: No Way Home

Well, it finally happened. Universes collided when Spider-Man: No Way Home was recently released, and we’re here to deliver all the spoilerific goodness. How many legacy characters can you spot? Is the MCU / Netflix war over? What’s up with the sling ring? And can J. Jonah Jameson really teach Reed Richards to play the drums? All this and a WHOLE lot more (you know what we’re talking about) on the latest episode of your friendly neighborhood Unfunny Nerd Tangent. Hosted by: ‘Captain...


UNT 130: Masters Of The Universe Revelation, Part 2

After a divisive first part, Masters of the Universe: Revelation returns with its final five episodes, so we decided to see what all the fuss (if any) was about. We welcomed back 'Alpha Magnus' Toby Hixon and newcomer, Dave Kindler from Tom Servo’s Used Robots to discuss Kevin Smith’s new marketing approach, Hulk Adam, HeVil-Lyn, equity casting and of course, battle boners. So if you’ve got the power, check out Episode 130! Hosted by: 'Captain Boomerang' Greig Tansley (@GreigT13). Featuring:...


UNT 129: Eternals

After several delays, Marvel’s latest movie, Eternals, is finally here. But what did we think? Is this movie the new Age of Ultron? Is it a landmark new direction for the MCU and comic book films in general? Or is it a bland, slow-paced slog? Better check Rotten Tomatoes. Oh, wait. No, don’t. Either way, we discussed this movie and several of its talking points, and still aren’t sure exactly what to think, besides all the accidental Game of Thrones references. So get ready for your own...


UNT 128: What If...?

As the MCU brings us yet another show to consume, we decided to dive into the multiverse to not only ponder the question, but also review the new Disney + series – What If…? We took a look at what might happen if Agent Carter took the super serum, T’Challa became a Star Lord, Ultron, Yellowjacket and Killmonger won, Doctor Strange lost his heart, Dude Bro Thor and of course… zombies. Lots of zombies. Not to mention, the multitude of other unwieldly inquiries, such as why wasn’t Carol worthy,...

The MCU continues to expand with yet another hit movie, Shang Chi & The Legend of the Ten Rings. This episode, your bus-driving UNT team dives into the movie feet fist, pondering what it means for the greater MCU in general, alongside the perils of a modern day Fu Manchu, the mystery of Fin Fang Foom and more potential mispronunciations that you can shake a dragon scale at. Now, excuse us, we have to go to Karaoke. Hosted by: 'Captain Boomerang' Greig Tansley (@GreigT13). Featuring: 'Master...

UNT 124: Masters Of The Universe Revelation Part 1

After years of build-up, Kevin Smith and Netflix finally released Part 1 of Masters of the Universe: Revelation, to mixed reviews (to say the least) and a storm of controversy. So we assembled the greatest heroes and villains from across the UNTiverse to rate and review this new show in epic fashion. If you weren’t up to speed on the current controversy, then buckle up your Roton, because we went in harder than a Land Shark looking for its next sacrificial Trollan. But beyond all that, we...


UNT 123: Loki

With more variants than you can poke a pruning baton at, the MCU continues to expand with the new television series, Loki. We delved into the secret files of the TVA to find the answers to this mysterious show, and were still left with questions about its glorious purpose. But we did find Throg, and Tim brought Josta for everyone! We may have had some divided opinions on this show, but one thing is for sure – this marks the beginning of a whole new chapter for the MCU, and its branching...


UNT 122: Black Widow

It's been a long time coming, but the MCU is back on the big screen! Phase Four kicks off in Budapest style with the release of Black Widow. We squeezed our dad bods into our old superhero suits to sit down and discuss the long-awaited MCU solo movie for Scarlet Johansson and the Black Widow character, daring to try and connect the dots between Dr. Claw, Seinfeld, Red Hulk and broken noses with nothing more than an unhealthy amount pockets and posing. Was this movie the grand swan song Black...


UNT 121: Big Trouble In Little China

Big Trouble in Little China turns 35 this year, so when some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your head up against the barroom wall, looks you crooked in the eye and asks you if you paid your dues; you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that... “Have you paid your dues, Jack? Yes, sir. The check is in the mail.” So you see, we’re not saying that we've been everywhere and done...


UNT 120: Star Trek IV The Voyage Home 35th Anniversary

What do you do when the internet in Arizona is under siege by an alien probe of unknown origins? You slingshot around the sun with a look back at Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. The fourth entry into the Star Trek series of films has reached its 35th anniversary, so along with Caleb from the Autopod Decepticast, Greig took a quick look back at what is regarded as many people's favourite Star Trek movie, if not technically the 'greatest'. **cough** Wrath of Khan **cough** The return of jovial...


UNT 119: Invincible

Another cartoon? Yep, but this one isn’t what you think. Cue the splatter, it’s time to talk Invincible. What do you get when you cross The Walking Dead with Booster Gold, thrown together with some graphic violence that would make Rorschach blush, garnished by a mustachioed man who used to run a newspaper, talk to bats and is obsessed with tempo? You get the new hit animated series by Robert Kirkman, based on that comic your in-the-know-friend has been bugging you to read for years. This...
