Episode 127: The Old Guard (2020)

This week Joe, James and Rhys discuss a very recent comic-book adaption that they didn't cover at the time - 2020's The Old Guard, starring Charlize Theron and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood. They talk about what changes were made from the source material, whether the action scenes succeed viscerally and emotionally, and if you buy the characters as having lived for hundreds (thousands?) of years. They also cover the latest comic book movie news, James recommends some comics, and Joe and James battle it out over the pitch.
