The Disney Click presented by Meltdown Comics

Weekly from Hollywood, California, Meltdown Comics presents the enchanting Briers and provocative Rick as they channel their inner child on all things Disney. Rick’s wry perspective and unconditional commentary on Disney’s good, bad and ugly pulls the curtain back on Disney parks, restaurants and entertainment, while Briers passionate belief in the real magic of pixie dust encourages everyone to continue to “believe.” Personable commentary with a male/female perspective lends a humorous bent to family-friendly tips, tricks and lists about Disney vacations, movies and gossip. The podcast features insider interviews, Hollywood guests, news, history and fun facts about Disney. Join us for magic time every week!

#10: Marvel: With Great Acting Comes Great Responsibility

Meltdown Presents: The Disney Click #10: Marvel: With Great Acting Comes Great Responsibility  Rick and Briers discuss the superhero actors of the Marvel universe.  Who has done the best job of embodying the powerful roles that we've mostly known from comic book pages up until now. Also, Briers takes us back to when Pixar's A Bug's Life went up against DreamWorks' Ants in the Fall of 1998. Was this a case of business before friendship? Finally, when you think of theme park attractions that were turned into movies, do you think about Pirates of the Caribbean or (gulp) The Haunted Mansion? We look at Disney's past and future attempts to turn beloved park experiences into good films.Join the discussionTwitter @thedisneyclick Instagram #thedisneyclick  Produced by Terri Lubaroff and Mason Booker.
