The episode in which we intro a new segment, Hulu might be producing a shared Stephen King universe show, Amazon’s Costume Quest series(!!!), hiphoptherobot’s early Nintendo Switch delivery, Donald Glover is Simba 2.0, and the first wedding hosted in VR. Steve watched Justice League Dark, Harold Lloyd’s Speedy, and Flyboys; while I caught John Wick Chapter 2, went further into Lego Dimensions, and started Grim Fandango. Plus, IMAX VR’s first Experience Centre, developments in staged VR, and how all three can learn from Japanese arcades, Microsoft bolstering voice recognition, Pewdiepie’s anti-semetic fall from grace, Roman Polanski, Mel Gibson, all telecos now offer unlimited LTE plans, and A Cure For Wellness advertising with fake news.
We’ve started the year off with a fascinating thriller which a spoiler-free review sadly doesn’t do justice for, but as luck would have it, we have a separate show (this one) made for situations such as these. There’s a lot to ponder in this mind fuck of a rape flick; join us as we try to make sense of it all while praising its enigma.
If the name Paul Verhoeven doesn’t mean anything to you, chances are you’ve never thought about our site’s branding. Robocop is one of those films that just gets me, so finally having the chance to not only catch it’s director’s latest work, but also review something of his for the first time, was a special treat for us. Given the nature of this flick, we are mum on details, but you can tune into A Few Dollars More for the juicier conversation.
The episode in which I return from my day off, Wanda plans to buy one of the major Hollywood studios, the trials and tribulations of Birth of a Nation, VR finding a place in the court room, the problem with music streaming exclusives, HBO signing the first triple coverage TV deal with AT&T, Fast 8’s on set drama (and its rumored WWE end), Doug Liman leaving Marvel for DC, Fox’s X-Men franchise status quo, and my fanboy dream of the DCEU. Plus, lots of Spiderman talk, Playstation coverage, the importance of Blade, my continued championing of the return of the mystery genre, and an exploration of why 3D paved the way for VR.
