Welcome to our first triple feature, starting with the true romcom of Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon’s lives #IdBuyThatForADollar, followed by Sony’s third go at Spidey (24:23), and finally Matt Reeves’s conclusion to the Apes trilogy (48:23) #IBTFAD. Also, Steve shares thoughts on The Exception (1:20:07), Kirikou and the Sorceress (1:24:19), and a double feature of The Philadelphia Story/Palm Beach Story (1:27:06). Meanwhile, I caught This is John (1:32:04) and Videodrome in 35mm (1:36:37) – then my Goodwill Corner featuring a surprise announcement (1:41:08).
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 week in which I try to make #shemake a thing again, we talk about Disney playing it safe, Eyefluence is looking to bring eye tracking to VR/AR, BitTorrent unleashes the Discovery Fund in its latest attempt to curb piracy connotations, Hulu is getting rid of its free content, NBCUniversal enters a deal to make content for Snapchat (which Steve still doesn’t understand), Harry Potter vs Star Wars, Nickelodeon continues the nostalgia craze, China believes in James Wan, and Amazon Prime Video has 1-click enabled product placement ads now. Plus, VR coming to Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights, a long discussion about the CW’s two part musical crossover in the Arrowverse, David Fincher making another sequel, a Winchester Mansion flick, and a frank discussion about our differences in comedy appreciation spurned by news of a Scarface remake.
The episode in which we celebrate crossing the one year mark with Tyler and Luis, mourn Anton Yelchin’s untimely passing, cover the next Indiana Jones and Spielberg’s nonstop production calendar, rumors of The Rock being cast in his fourth franchise at Universal, the stellar additions to Spiderman: Homecoming, and Sony’s rumored plans for its new franchise. Plus, I share my experience with Playstation VR, Oculus attempts to get out of hot water, E3 coverage, Paramount’s rules for Star Trek fan films post-Axanar, Hotel Transylvania 3, Step Up coming to YouTube Red, Monopoly: The Musical, and much more!
