The episode in which we continue TrumpWatch2017, Apocalypse Now is becoming a videogame, Square-Enix is doing the same to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Fox has enlisted Bryan Singer for an in universe X-Men pilot, The Flash stays troubled, Predator sounds amazing, and I tried the Naked Chicken Chalupa. Also, my thoughts on The Founder, Moonlight, SportsBar VR, and Girlschool DJ night; and Steve’s on some Amazon docs, Bone Tomahawk, and I Know Who Killed Me. Plus, AT&T/Time Warner might have competition between Comcast adding cellular lines to its family and Verizon possibly buying Charter Communications, Oscar nominations, the next projects from Jeremy Saulnier and James Ponsoldt, and the first UHD Blu-ray drives are coming to PCs.
While everyone else is busy polishing off fruitcake, buying people presents, and doing their best to embody the holiday spirit, Steve thought we should visit the more sinister side of the yuletide season. We were lucky to have the spooktacular Brennan teach us about the slasher genre, while we marveled at this film’s place in it, and guide us on our first journey down Bob Clark’s lesser known Xmas miracle, which gives the best gift of all: fear #IdBuyThatForADollar
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).
Shane Black and Nathan Drake are back, and so are we! Tune in for this double feature on 70s era LA mysteries and Naughty Dog’s final Playstation treasure hunting adventure (23:40). If you’re too lazy to listen, I’d buy both of these for a dollar! (which isn’t saying much when I spent $80 on the latter). Plus, Steve talks about the latest 3D IMAX documentary, A Beautiful Planet (38:50).
I met Tyler from Future Horse Podcast and knew we had to do a RoboCop double feature when he caught the reference to the savior of Detroit in our name. So I skipped the first sequel and made Steve watch this PG-13 trainwreck (perhaps as a little payback for The Star Wars Holiday Special) for his second foray against OCP.
The episode in which we talk about James Bond theme songs, Legendary making a Godzilla vs King Kong movie, WB setting a date for the next Christopher Nolan film, a Trainspotting sequel, the AMC Preacher show getting a series order, Snapchat joining the original content party, and Apple living in the tech past. Plus, we give reviews to Chappie, Jupiter Ascending, and Shane Black’s Monster Squad.
