The episode in which 100 being the ending seems more and more realistic, lots of tryhard social network lamestars got dupped by Ja Rule and his doomed Bahamian luxury music outing and the Seth Rogen/Lonely Island flick that might share a similar premise, we try to make sense of unions and the impending WGA strike, lots of Disney flicks get dates, Time Warner’s DC streaming service, and Amazon’s Echo Look. Plus, Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic World 2, Logan going black and white, Night Trap turns 25, M. Night’s Unbreakable sequel, what David Fincher, Damien Chazelle, Ang Lee, and Paul Verhoeven are working on next, Innaritu on VR, Abu Dhabi’s Warner Bros World, social network holidays, and deets on Netflix’s next Adam Sandler flick.
The episode in which our hero from Bulworth and Dick Tracy finds himself in a sticky situation, the passing of Bill Paxton, the state of Playstation VR, Hellboy, Nightwing, and Devon Sawa?! Steve caught the apparently similar Get Out and A Cure for Wellness, while I have had HEALTH’s Disco 3 on repeat while exploring Thumper (PSVR). Plus, Netflix looking very Bright (so we try to calculate its money pool), 5G tests are coming this year, and VR in space!
The week in which we’re back after I spent the prior week hosting someone in a different fashion altogether and reintroduce a segment to the show in which I share my Playstation VR first impressions. Also, (30 mins later) AT&T is re-establishing itself as a monopoly by purchasing Time Warner, Wang Jialin unveiled Movie Metropolis and his plan to kickstart Chinese tourism and commerce, the NBA is going to broadcast one game a week in VR, Devin Faraci is scum, Marvel continues the worst trend in directing, and Chris Rock has landed a huge Netflix check. Plus, the Nintendo Switch, High Frame Rates in cinema, The Coen Brother’s Dark Web, Donald Glover as the Young Lando, and I contemplate registering to vote to protest the usage of condoms in porn.
The episode in which Steve tries to guess the Oscar winners, I give my critique of the ceremony/coverage, stunt performers are lobbying for their own category, #JusticeForFlint did well despite its counter programming, the FBI nabbed one of the screener pirates, we talk about the R-rated comic book movies, China might buy a stake in Paramount, and Netflix will start streaming in HDR. Plus I continue my fascination with VR, especially in terms of new developments (Facebook’s dynamic streaming/Google leveraging Project Tango), Ready Player One found its lead, Fox moves things around, we talk Sam Raimi because he is making World War III, Pacific Rim 2, we talk about Disney movies, Amazon is trying new things, and Netflix has found new talent.
The episode in which we used a hashtag in the title so we never have to talk about this again, China continues to take hold in Hollywood, Netflix crosses 75 million subscribers, HBO goes 100% streaming in Spain, Amazon and A24 buy up Sundance, Rob Cohen is making a natural disaster/heist flick, Greta Gerwig is trying the director’s chair, Labyrinth is getting a reboot, Tarantino universe tidbits, Star Wars Episode VIII moves to Christmas, Kevin Smith made a pot dispensary pilot, Judd Apatow gets another TV show, and I accidentally placed a cool Netflix sci-fi movie announcement at the end.
The episode in which we talk about Star Wars making more money at the box office than actual releases, Episode 7 coming to Netflix next year, Back to the Future Day, Chris Rock hosting the Oscars, Power Rangers casting announcements, Disney adapting more attractions, the Sherlock Victorian special, and YouTube Red subscription service. Plus, discussion about Steve Jobs, Crimson Peak, Bridge of Spies, Room, Day of the Dead, Interior. Leather Bar, The Guest, You’re Next, and Paranormal Activity.
