Wham Bam Pow Ep. 100 - Avengers: Age of Ultron

Wham Bam Pow

This week, we're breaking major ground by doing two things never before done in Wham Bam Pow history: we're reviewing TWO movies, and one of those reviews is a re-review. That's right, not only are we taking a look at Avengers: Age of Ultron, we're also stepping back and digging deeper into Mad Max: Fury Road, a movie that didn't get a fair shake the first time around. Plus, lots of goofy puns in honor of episode 100! WHAM!

Next week we'll be watching The Core which is currently available on Netflix Watch Instant!

Follow us on Twitter! Cameron is @cameronesposito, Rhea is @rheabutcher and Ricky is @rickycarmona. Discuss the show using the hashtag #WhamBamPow!
