The week in which we spend the first 30 mins talking about our recent watches/plays (including my ongoing PSVR impressions), AT&T attempts to lower public disdain of vertical integration by hinting DirecTV Now will only be $35/month, Donald Trump’s Hollywood Star’s continual vandalism and its effect on voter sympathy, Amazon is now available in China, Microsoft continues to impress by introducing the Windows 10 Creator Update and its accompanying VR headsets, and ABBA and Muppet Babies are returning! Plus, Sony’s Uncharted adaptation, Rambo, Zelda Fitzgerald, the continual stupidity of Cupertino, Twitch has a cooking show now, and lots of HTC Vive info.
The episode in which Steve talks about Hail Caesar, I finally catch Spike Lee’s Chi-raq (03:57), we each saw the lackluster Burnt (16:37), plus thoughts on two forgettable/forgotten spy adaptations: The Man From U.N.C.L.E (23:24) and The Saint (27:44). I also give my thoughts on The Muppets midseason premiere (32:01), Gilmore Girls (35:11), and Call of Duty: Black Ops III’s Awakening DLC pack (41:13).
The episode in which we talk about #ForceForDaniel, Jon Stewart coming to HBO, the streaming only Star Trek series, Activision creating a film division, Sony making another Steig Larson movie, Duncan Jones’s Warcraft and Mute, Key and Peele voicing a stop motion flick, Shane Carruth’s next project’s crazy, good cast, and the Luther TV movie. Plus, reviews for Spectre, The Peanuts Movie, Man From Reno, Irreversible, and Netflix’s Master of None.
