‘Captain America: Civil War’ conquers the box office this weekend, but did it reach our soul, and did it deliver the Marvel Cinematic movie they’ve built up since 2008.

EJ pulls no punches with his dislike for the Disney formula of the MCU. Matt, on the other hand, enjoyed the film but is still waiting for the Marvel movie that takes chances and inspires us all. (Marvel Studios is so close! -Matt)

Bonus conversation: ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Fear the Walking Dead’

Never heard of Matt Sardo?
For starters, he made the Kessel Run in less than 11 parsecs. Prior to that, he gave Doc Brown the idea for the flux capacitor and led the Resistance to victory over SkyNet – all while sipping a finely crafted IPA. As a radio host, he’s interviewed celebrities, athletes and everyone in between. He’s covered everything from the Super Bowl to Comic-Con.

Who is EJ Moreno?
Is he a trained physician? No. Is he a former Miss Universe contestant? Possibly. But what we know for sure is he’s a writer, filmmaker, and pop culture enthusiast. Since film school, EJ has written & directed several short films. He’s used his passion of filmmaking to become a movie critic for MonkeysFightingRobots.com.
