Breaking News: Marvel has the rights to use Spider-Man in it’s films and we break it down and share our thoughts on what this will mean for Spider-Man as well as the upcoming Marvel movies.

In 1999 the world of film was changed forever by a film called The Matrix. We were introduced to “bullet time” and for many, this was their first time to hear of the Wachowskis, the writers and directors. The movie left audiences cheering and eagerly anticipating more from this new powerhouse of Hollywood originality. Fast forward to 2015 and the view on them has changed; is their latest a return to the glory days or another disappointment from a once promising team?

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Mike Schindler to discuss Jupiter Ascending. We talk through our first impressions from the marketing, making original sic-fi movies, the story, the conversations this film as generated, the visuals, casting, music, rounding out by ranking this in the Wachowski’s body of work.
