The week in which we only cover politics via SNL and Shia LaBoeuf, gamers face more delays as E3 goes public, Jay and Silent Bob are getting rebooted, several big directors have new projects, and Star Wars is landing in two big ways. I saw The Lego Batman Movie when I wasn’t busy becoming obsessed with collecting Lego Dimensions or playing Day of the Tentacle Remastered, while Steve caught Vertigo in 70mm and VR treasure, The Lawnmower Man. Plus, Apple, Facebook, and Viacom switch up their TV approaches, Halloween is getting another reboot (but we are excited about it), Jack Nicholson is coming out of hiding, the Terms of Endearment black remake, changes The Academy should make, Oculus is shuddering its demo stations, and the advent of underwater VR.
We begin with the all Daniels, tour de farts, Swiss Army Man which will hopefully ride the current under the radar into your hearts, then surf into Finding Dory (20:28) a little later than the rest of the ocean of film critics. Finally, Steve caught Max Landis’s Victor Frankenstein (32:00) and I talk future proofing my Playstation VR library with Mike Bithell’s Volume (36:05).
