#04 – When Vision Impaired Meet Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

August 31, 2017

 

No, this was not an all-expense trip to Hollywood. The boys from the Channel Empathy crew talk about their experience watching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at the theatres, keeping in mind Zahier and Joshua both watched the movie as people with vision impairment. Arman takes the guys through some of their highlights and criticisms of the movie, and at the end of the episode, Arman reveals some nasty truths about the movie neither Joshua nor Zahier were prepared for.
