Movie – Captain America: Civil War
This month, Rhonda and I discuss the latest Avengers movie, Captain America: Civil War. Although billed as a Captain America movie, it is an Avengers-themed extravaganza of action and internal conflict as our heroes navigate how they operate as a superhero crime-fighting team now exposed to public criticism. Listen to hear us discuss the characters, storytelling approaches, and action in this summer blockbuster.
We also give some streaming recommendations to help fill your vacation downtime. Got a show or some movies you are binge watching this summer? Let us know in the comments.
Keep an eye out for our summer movie series that we will continue monthly through August. Also, we are looking for ambassadors to produce content for The Geek Embassy. Interested? Read the details here.
Until next time, get your geek on!

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
