The episode in which Skype really tried to fuck our groove up, Kanye is out the hospital/Fidel is still dead, I tell you about my time at Playstation Experience 2016, Netflix finally allows users to download content, an update on Nintendo at Universal Studios, I share reviews on A Case of You, Save the Last Dance, and Sky High while Steve talks The Running Man, Too Late, and finally James Bond which spirals into a saga about 007. Plus, DirecTV Now and Amazon Prime Channels amplifying cord cutting, what zero rated data aka free streaming means for the internet, the importance of Wikipedia, the future of the home video experience revisited, Wanda building itself bigger in Hollywood as tinseltown looks to grow elsewhere, and what conglomeration means to us.
Hey, look! One of our favorite filmmakers released a trashy film and we decided to talk about it for way longer than it probably deserves. This conversation is an even mix of laughing at the story’s logic, off topic tangents, and a fanboy retrospective of Kevin Smith’s career.
We begin with the latest experiment in Kevin Smith’s post “I don’t give a fuck,” weed fueled leg of his career – the famous daughter starring, teen scream, Yoga Hosers. Then I gush over Wes Craven’s underrated New Nightmare (38:09), Steve tries to make you gasp with Don’t Breathe (46:29) and The Time Machine (49:26), then I give a freeze frame of Demolition Man (54:49) and House of 1000 Corpses (56:09). Finally I quickly scoop Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1’s betas (1:04:18) before sharing the latest sonic stylings of Frank Ocean and Vince Staples (1:07:09).
