Two Cents 076: Christmas Vacation

The week in which I share another story about my car getting in the way of recording an episode, Nintendo might be joining the VR game, I once again share my thoughts on the future of virtual reality, as well as telling about my screenings of Nerve and Demolition, while Steve spares me his reviews of Oscar contenders to talk H.G. Wells’s Things to Come.

In bigger news, Yahoo has been hacked once again this year, David Ayer is returning to direct DC’s Gotham City Sirens movie, we talk the possibility of Bright breaking streaming out from direct to DVD faire into the “New New Hollywood,” Fox and Facebook join the vertical integration party, Comcast makes a push for Enhanced Movie Extras on streaming, Twitch adds IRL live streaming, and the DoT sets the future for autonomous cars.

Dollar Reviews 023: The Do-Over/Preacher/X-Men: Apocalypse

This week I decided to be a cheap jerk and make Steve catch Adam Sandler’s second Netflix exclusive, The Do-Over, as well as Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher pilot (22:15). Steve caught the natural header, X-Men: Apocalypse in 3D (32:45) and last year’s Cannes standout, The Lobster (42:12). Finally, I saw another comicbook pilot in Cinemax’s Outcast (54:49) and give my impressions of Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (58:49).

Two Cents 040: Ounces to Freedom

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.
