The final episode of the show where we chronicle all the major trends we’ve reported over the years (vertical integration, VR, the internet of things, evolution of movies/TV, etc), Amazon storms its way into the grocery business, Verizon officially owns Yahoo, and social media starts creating actual media. Plus, round two of E3 2017 coverage, Rocket League, Bethesda VR, Sony’s PlayLink, Spiderman Homecoming VR tie-in, and Clean Version initiative, and the future of blockbusters.
If I was smarter I would have picked Michael Crichton’s Westworld to tie-in with HBO’s hit series debut, but I was in the mood for splatter instead.

The week in which I stumble out of the gate but still implore everyone to visit LACMA’s Guillermo Del Toro exhibit, Black Panther has new big talent, Amazon launched Video Direct, making them a Youtube competitor, the A to Z store is rumored to offer its own food items to Prime members, We Do It Together is making a female centered short film collection, the scary trend of people live streaming sad shit, Warner Bros makes Godzilla moves as Gareth Edwards moves on, The Russo Bros are making a Chinese superhero movie, Wentworth Miller is going to be a recurring character across the Arrowverse, and Disney Infinity is no more as The House of Mouse has ceased all videogame development.
The episode in which we talk about Sony’s release date calendar, their upcoming 4K Blu-ray tech, PEZ candy/product adaptions, February release dates, and Fantastic Four, because its hard to ignore how much the world hates it.
What happens when some unproven director who got lucky with his debut tries to tackle Marvel’s first family with a dark, downbeat tone? Listen to me rage and Steve try to protect this failure in our most heated review yet.
