The episode in which I finally have someone on that knows what VR is so I begin by asking him lots of things about working in the new medium, SanDisk created a 1TB SD card, Palmer Luckey has a fall from grace, Dalian Wanda is teaming with Sony on their tentpoles, music streaming is equally as profitable as sales now, AT&T’s DirecTV net neutrality no-no’s, Pokemon GO and Snapchat’s role in AR’s adoption, and the future of advertising/marketing in the VR age. Plus, Dawson’s Creek, VCRs, lactose intolerance, virtual reality’s lack of content & governance, parents not understanding the dangers of early VR exposure, VR gambling coming to casinos, and almost no film conversation at all.
Two Cents 058: Suicidal Tendencies
The week in which we frequently talk about Suicide Squad between topics, Hollywood is going she-make crazy, Visionary VR’s Mindshow might be the tech’s killer app, James Ponsoldt is teaming with Disney, Amazon’s set to marathon its new Pilot Season on Twitch, Wanda bets big on IMAX and 3D in China, and Time Warner joins Hulu. Plus, we talk DVDs vs Blu-ray, Kathryn Bigelow hopping on the VR train, $3000 being the entry point for developing new tech, the true price of streaming, Japan testing 8K content, Toy Story x Vans, and George R. R. Martin’s next TV adaptation.
Two Cents 050: Overachievement Unlocked (w/Cynical Cartoons)
The episode in which Steve is taking a sabbatical so Tyler from Future Horse joins me, Flash has a Dope new director, Rogue One is going through reshoots, news on the Sicario sequel, Power Rangers, Google is taking steps to prevent Skynet, holographic performances at the Museum of Comedy, stupid backlash over X-Men, Ubisoft is adapting another IP to the big screen, and the reemergence of the musical and disaster flick. Plus, Netflix is making a show about female wrestlers, Atari is trying to stay relevant, and I gush over the promise of VR for a new set of ears (and why it won’t be the next fad like 3D).
Two Cents 039: Cinema of Future Past
The episode in which David joins us again, Indiana Jones 5 happens, Netflix rescues The Little Prince and snags Bright, Universal did racial profiling through Facebook to promote Straight Outta Compton, M-Go has become Fandango Now, Redbox might be sold off, Regal is no longer allowing kids into R-rated films, we get deeper on our thoughts of The Screening Room, and breakdown Sony’s GDC news on Playstation VR, Vue, and a rumored PS4 upgrade. Plus, Microsoft’s Actiongram, Twitch going culinary, livestreaming mobile VR content, a movie about Michael Jackson’s chimp, another Obama movie, DC’s The Killing Joke, the Dawn of Justice Director’s Cut, Judge Judy’s salary, and Netflix staying romantic.
P.S. The image is from the We Bare Bears episode “Shush Ninjas” which totes gets us.
