DESTINIES PROMO for 11/17/23

From Howard Margolin:

Last week, The Marvels opened in theaters, setting a new box office low for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

This week, the Destinies Film Review Team assembles live to discuss The Marvels.

Tune in Friday night at 11:15 to learn if the story accessible if a viewer is not familiar with the events of Captain MarvelWandaVision, and Ms. Marvel?

Are the action scenes exciting or even coherent? Are the visual effects up to the usual Marvel standards? Is the musical sequence amusing, gratuitous, or just annoying?

Is the film really a zero-star disaster, as Newsday described it? And, if not, what is the movie worth on the Famous Destinies Zero to Nine Dollars Rating Scale?

Find out on Friday, November 17th, at 11:15 PM, when hosts Audrey Dettmering, Dave Campfield, Timothy Gillespie, and Howard Margolin, who celebrates 33 consecutive years as producer, review The Marvels on Destinies-The Voice of Science Fiction
