The @LegendsOfShield (Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D.) Agents Stargate Pioneer and Lauren have fun with the 2005 Marvel Comic based movie Elektra! This week’s podcast hosts duo will also run down the week in Marvel news, and review down all the awesome Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. feedback.

Elektra [2:26]

 

Lauren and Stargate Pioneer don;t cringe as much as they thought they would and actually took this week's Elektra watch to just enjoy an entertaining film. That's right, it is not a bad as Lauren remembers or that Stargate Pioneer thought he was going to think Elektra was. They still have issues with the film, but it is a great Saturday afternoon in the background movie to have playing. It's a good popcorn film that just didn't live up to it's potential.

 

Among the many issue with the film was that Lauren doesn’t get the Jennifer Garner hawtness. She's never really been Stargate Pioneer's favorite either, but he did recognize the hotness on the screen in front of him. However, Lauren did love Goran Visnjic because of ER.

 

Both hosts loved the supporting cast including Hiro Conagonwa, Colin Cunningham, Jason Isaacs and Terrance Stamp. The two fawned over Colin from his apperances in Stargate SG-1 at Maj Davis and his more recent renegade role in Falling Skies.

 

One of Staragte Pioneer's issues was the introduction narration. It was a big disconnect with the Ben Affleck Daredevil film that Jennifer Garner/Elektra started in. Lauren had an issue with Treasure and the mystiscm in the movie in general.

 

Maybe because the two hosts have a spot of OCD themselves, they both took note of Elektra's OCD and wondered why it was in there to begin with. Lauren brought up that it was a connection with Abby which is as good of a reason as any but it really brought nothing forward in the film other than perhaps an intruder tip off for Elektra.

 

Both hosts are in grave awe over Elektra's one handed pullups and it reminded StarPi of either Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2 or Stephen Amell's workout scene in Arrow.

 

StarPi brings up in jest a shirtless Jennifer Garner scene and Lauren shocks him by telling him it might actually have been a possibility early on in the film creation for a Rated R cut.

 

Neither hosts were very impressed with the colored gasses when someone died. They can only reference them as fart villains as seen this television season in Gotham and Flash.

 

Both hosts noticed the nice compound bow but they are both disappointed that they only get to see it once n the movie.

 

Lauren brings up that sai weapons are originally peasant defensive hidden weapon and not originally offensive weapons. So Elektra is WRONG.

 

One of the best part of the movie was the CGI'ed tattoo animals. Great CGI. Bright colors. Pretty cool.

 

In true prepper fashion StarPi is now hard at work digging an escape tunnel to the field behind the house. Cause every house should have one.

 

It's been said before but ninjas have terrible costumes.

 

Another great part of this movie was the action scenes. The action was great with stunt people, wire foo and bullet time. Don;t forget the throwing stars as climbing footholds.

 

Being the dad of a kid superhero sucks. The only thing poor Goran has going for him is superpower puppy eyes and his ability to get Elektra. Which brings up a question: What exactly is the mourning period in comic book world? Lauren's definitive answer? 3 issues.

 

Every body has a type. Elektra’s type is blind guys.

 

Is Elektra good or bad? Who knows? But she does look good sporting the braid of justice.

 

So it's no Agent May - Agent 33 fight, but the Abby – Elektra fight is good despite obvious stunt personnel.

 

The two hosts think about what the ability to have mind to mind conference call in dreams would do for you at work. One word: weird.

 

Elektra’s outfit looks gooood. It's not functional. It's not realistic. It's just good.

 

And finally what's with with room of flying Casper sheets? 

 

EXTRAS:

 

Lauren finished Dragon Age Inquisition.

 

Lauren always wanted to live in a hole in the ground. While StarPi has indeed visited the Ingalls family dugout site in Walnut Grove, Minnesota.

 

From the wonderful mind of Lauren she reaches in for a recommendation for: From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.

 

In case of emergency Lauren's bug-out plan was always to live in a hole and then move into the Mall.

 

Lauren brings up the crazy Steve Jackson card game: Ninja Burger.

 

Lauren brings up her Star Wars nightmare with a butter dish with googly eyes.  Everyone please be nice to Lauren until Star Wars VII comes out later this year.
