The Defenders & I’m Danny Rand | 90

The IMMORTAL IRON FIST. Yes Danny we know… Today we talk about the newest Marvel Netflix series The Defenders. Does this hold up the standard the franchise is known for? Maybe. We dicuss that and more on todays episode! Also, I’m Danny Rand, the Immortal Iron Fist!

Let’s Write About Movies!


Some opinions are better expressed in written format.

We’re heading into our 90th episode next week, and as always, we’ll talk about something in the movie-sphere that we find interesting and relevant (in this case, we’ll step away from movies and discuss the Netflix series “The Defenders”). And if you’ve ever listened to our episodes, we typically get long winded. We don’t keep it simple at the Stale Popcorn Podcast. If something is easy and needs to be made convoluted, we’re your podcast!

With that out of the way, I feel there is an opportunity here to dive into more content, because sometimes what we want to express simply doesn’t fit into the flow of our weekly show and is better served for another arena.

Therefore, it is my goal to bring written content to the site. We typically have a rough outline of topics we want to tackle on the show, but we try to keep it as consistently comparable as we can; you probably won’t hear us talking about the latest Disney movie and then also talking about the goriest film we’ve ever seen in the same episode, because they don’t fit together. And since some topics don’t stretch into 30 minute podcasts, we leave them on the cutting room floor. There is no telling how many topics we have abandoned because they just didn’t mesh with what we’re trying to do on our weekly podcast.

There are a few topics I want to take a run at soon, so get ready for some Stale Popcorn reading very soon. In the meantime, we just posted our 89th episode for your listening pleasure. On that episode, we discuss the Big 4 in the Netflix Marvel Series, and in typical SPP fashion, we go off on some tangents and find some way to re-align with our main topic. So, give that a listen, and as always, let us know what you think by connecting with us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

See you soon!

Atomic Blonde | 85


Everyone else is talking about, so I guess we will too. “The Emoji Movie” is the worst movie of the year and we didn’t even see it, but we still give our unprofessional opinion on this atrocity. Also talking some “Atomic Blonde,” and we finish up our discussion from last week on “Valerian” and “Dunkirk.”

Thanks for listening!

Dunkirk Fans May Hate Us After This One / Tension Over Valerian | 84

You can cut the tension with a knife as we get heated over, of all things, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

We then discuss and dissect Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” and you might not like our take.

Our theme song is “Thing of Gold” by Snarky Puppy.
