The week in which I hopefully share details about my doomed romance for the last time, Tinder goes trans friendly, Domino’s does drone delivery in New Zealand, and Steve caught Terrence Malick’s A Voyage of Time and Brainscan, while I finally checked out Westworld’s pilot and Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival. Also, Google and Facebook crack down on fake news ads, the possible end of the Electoral College, China continues its foothold in the movie industry, Marvel moves Inhumans to the small screen, the curious case of Watch Dogs 2, and a fun closing conversation about the future of VR, gaming, and 8K.
The week in which Wanda has been added to the Fortune 500, Legendary is making a Pokemon movie, VCR production is finally coming to an end, Max Landis is behind the new Pepe Le Pew movie, Marvel and DC’s latest Hall H announcements, Lionsgate’s rumored game plan for Divergent, Brazil’s Globo is the first broadcaster to join the 4K HDR party, and Nate Parker is already setting up shop for his next production. Also, Twitch joins the fight against Counter Strike: GO gambling, Twitter allows anyone to submit for its blue checkmark, Elon Musk unveiled Tesla’s new master plan, the Mr. Robot VR broadcast, Blair Witch, and a Kentucky man stops his movie theater fight by pulling out a gun.
Within 24 hours of Netflix’s second season going live I took on the fool’s errand of binging the entire thing for your listening pleasure. We not only talk the season’s merits, but also MCU connections, performances, and Steve’s disdain for kickass action on the small screen. This is our first attempt at mutually reviewing something other than a film, so let us know how we did!
