The episode in which I try to keep this show alive by dumping Penny Thoughts back onto Dollar Reviews (and doing that weekly again via streaming titles), I make my first retractions, Superman joins Mission: Impossible, Fandango takes aim at Mondo, and Sony says goodbye to the PS3/hello again to VR as more join the fray. Steve caught up on The Edge of Seventeen, Raw, and 2014’s Beauty and the Beast; while I was enamored by Kedi, pumped out Drake’s More Life, experienced Step Up 3D within PSVR, and finally beat Sly Cooper. More importantly, Sony is making a Venom movie, Warner Bros is rebooting The Matrix, Fox is remaking The Fly, and Netflix is re-sharting pan and scan.
We begin with David Ayer’s new, Snyder-less approach to the DC Extended Universe before diving into BvS (57:30) for a third, and final, time on the show, and close with a tease for the guest spot I made on Tyler’s show for The Killing Joke (01:48:00). Also, given that critics unanimously despise both these films I felt it necessary to rehash my gripes with the Rotten Tomatoes system and the clusterfuck which is contemporary film criticism (46:10).
I caught a midnight screening and a guest host to get this episode out to you Friday morning because I was so excited. You’d probably hear it in my voice if this was a Batman, Superman, or Trinity film, but instead we got DC’s gritty, intellectual Iron Man 2.
