The episode in which daylight savings just began so we are a day late, Ghost in the Shell is getting an awesome Japanese dub, we predict the futures of Blumhouse and Disney’s live-reactions, La La Land goes on a world tour, Ridley Scott wants more Xenomorph flicks, and Avatar 2 has been delayed yet again. I finally caught X-Men: Apocalypse, share my trip to the New Wave Bar, continue my descent into Lego Dimensions, and give a taste of PSVR 3D Blu-ray playback. Also, Camarada brings 3D recording to all Android devices, Oculus continues blurring VR’s future, IMDb’s F-rating for female projects, Time Warner expands its streaming to animation, our take on videogame adaptations, and the slate of 2017 blockbusters.
Finding the time and money to go to the movies is harder than staying at home; however, when Netflix streams features that are on our radar its basically the best of both worlds. We begin with Steve’s darling The Little Prince (which he has now seen five times) and the Sundance selected, Juno quasi-sequel, Tallulah (26:08). Later on, my better half pleads for me to check out Sausage Party (40:00) while I do the opposite for the first season of Seth Rogen’s AMC adaptation of Preacher (43:23).
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).
The episode in which we talk about even more adaptations, watching movies on Apple tech, mononyms, the dream of a Disneyland attraction shared universe event, and cinema breakthroughs being tied to controversial stories.
We basically review Sinister 2 and The End of The Tour as well, which leads to us looking toward the future of our careers.
