Welcome everyone to another episode of Don’t Make Me Watch That! – A podcast that celebrates movies and tears them down all in one sitting. Hosted by Andrew Young and Leslie Hudson, each episode presents the critique of a film from the long or recent past that one of us hates and the other one loves. Andrew and Leslie will do what they do best: fight and debate and make fun of one another. It’s all in good fun and for the love of FILM!
This episode, we take another trip back to 2009 for one of the biggest missteps in Fox’s X-Men franchise, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Directed by Gavin Hood and starring Hugh Jackman, the movie is what the title suggests, the origin story of Marvel’s most popular mutant. Wolverine’s early life is explored and the questions of his memory loss and adamantium skeleton are answered. Andrew is very pissed off by these answers as they make no sense. The result is a disaster of a movie that has a lot of flaws. A LOT OF FLAWS. Andrew goes through almost all of them as Leslie giggles with glee.
Listen as our two combatants argue the merits of X-Men Origins: Wolverine and cut each other up in the process. Enjoy.
