The episode where we try our best to sound energetic, but two years is finally catching up with us, Black Panther comes while a Batman goes, LA unveils an Alamo Drafthouse and a new Xbox, Bethesda and Apple fully embrace VR/AR, and SiriusXM teams up with Pandora. Plus, the continued boycott of Netflix in theaters, more Dark Universe monsters, Sony making family friendly streaming edits, selling a Plame d’Or to finance a movie, and Amazon/Oculus becoming available to all.
The episode in which I thank Steve for a great birthday present, we dissect Sony’s Playstation 4 Pro, speculate over the latest James Bond rumor, ridicule Apple for always being behind the curve, dream about Virginia Tech’s drone delivered Mexican food, and get sidetracked a ton before spending a lot of time on the DCEU especially Batman’s solo outing. Plus, Shanghai Dawn, Mallrats 2, my never ending love for Step Up and Magic Mike, Syfy’s upcoming hybrid 2D/VR project, Taco Bell fun facts, and more!
Hey, look! One of our favorite filmmakers released a trashy film and we decided to talk about it for way longer than it probably deserves. This conversation is an even mix of laughing at the story’s logic, off topic tangents, and a fanboy retrospective of Kevin Smith’s career.
The episode in which I return from my day off, Wanda plans to buy one of the major Hollywood studios, the trials and tribulations of Birth of a Nation, VR finding a place in the court room, the problem with music streaming exclusives, HBO signing the first triple coverage TV deal with AT&T, Fast 8’s on set drama (and its rumored WWE end), Doug Liman leaving Marvel for DC, Fox’s X-Men franchise status quo, and my fanboy dream of the DCEU. Plus, lots of Spiderman talk, Playstation coverage, the importance of Blade, my continued championing of the return of the mystery genre, and an exploration of why 3D paved the way for VR.
With DC’s “only bad guys can stop the real bad guys” movie coming this weekend, Steve thought it was only fitting for me to catch David Ayer’s admitted inspiration from 1967. Its a fun movie, especially for its length, but something is slightly off about it for me, listen in while I try to explain what that is while praising the ensemble cast.
The episode in which Ziggy Stardust and Hans Gruber are no longer with us, The Rams move back to LA, Ready Player One has an open casting call, Apple is rumored to be killing the headphone jack, China acquires Legendary, Netflix makes too many moves to type out, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Ryan Coogler helming Black Panther, Infinity War having 67 characters, DC making a WWI Wonder Woman movie, Disney’s shortlist for Young Han Solo, J-Law backlash, the Jumanji remake’s rushed production, Ava DuVernay moving to TV, 24 getting a reboot, and Hugh Hefner getting a docuseries.
