The week in which we spend the first 30 mins talking about our recent watches/plays (including my ongoing PSVR impressions), AT&T attempts to lower public disdain of vertical integration by hinting DirecTV Now will only be $35/month, Donald Trump’s Hollywood Star’s continual vandalism and its effect on voter sympathy, Amazon is now available in China, Microsoft continues to impress by introducing the Windows 10 Creator Update and its accompanying VR headsets, and ABBA and Muppet Babies are returning! Plus, Sony’s Uncharted adaptation, Rambo, Zelda Fitzgerald, the continual stupidity of Cupertino, Twitch has a cooking show now, and lots of HTC Vive info.
The slow week in which I try a different format, Amazon might have landed the next Linklater flick, Arclight Theaters are on Fandango, I share a funny/sad coincidence about Dollar Reviews 028, Transformers 5 casting King Arthur and its possible cementing of a trend, my second attempt at making “live-reaction” a thing, and DC and Marvel news (with an unrequested re-review of Spiderman: Civil War). Plus, Jon Favreau made a virtual reality experience, Steve finally got a Google Cardboard, we guess why HTC Vive and Oculus Rift sales are stagnant, Linden Labs and IMAX reveal more about their VR gambles, and the future of education in a digital world.
The episode in which not only Batman v Superman upset the critics, but DC is Rebirth-ing their comics again, Hollywood might boycott Georgia, Midnight Rider’s director has been let out of jail, Steve talks about MoviePass, Hulk Hogan/Erin Andrews and the future of The First Amendment, and a man was arrested over Freddy Got Fingered. Plus, Pornhub and Hulu have gone VR, Vizio has reinvented the smart TV, we dream up the ultimate digital movie watching experience, Taylor Kitsch is now a writer/director, the two sides of black movies, and some TV stuff you probably won’t listen long enough to hear.
