The episode in which Batfleck leaves the director’s chair, Smodcast turns 10, I forget what week it is, IMDb is abandoning its message boards, directors move around, and The CW’s DC footprint is getting bigger. Steve caught 28 Days Later on 35mm, caught up on Train to Busan, and saw I’m Not Your Negro; while I saw Manchester by the Sea, The Edge of Seventeen, and NBC’s Powerless. Plus, the UC Berkeley violent protest against free speech, Zenimax successfully sued Oculus for stealing their resources, Sony’s Playstation VR gets brighter as Sony Pictures looms in uncertainty, Snapchat grows up, and how Vizio’s spying on you might shake up FCC standards again.
The slow week in which I try a different format, Amazon might have landed the next Linklater flick, Arclight Theaters are on Fandango, I share a funny/sad coincidence about Dollar Reviews 028, Transformers 5 casting King Arthur and its possible cementing of a trend, my second attempt at making “live-reaction” a thing, and DC and Marvel news (with an unrequested re-review of Spiderman: Civil War). Plus, Jon Favreau made a virtual reality experience, Steve finally got a Google Cardboard, we guess why HTC Vive and Oculus Rift sales are stagnant, Linden Labs and IMAX reveal more about their VR gambles, and the future of education in a digital world.
