Welcome to our first triple feature, starting with the true romcom of Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon’s lives #IdBuyThatForADollar, followed by Sony’s third go at Spidey (24:23), and finally Matt Reeves’s conclusion to the Apes trilogy (48:23) #IBTFAD. Also, Steve shares thoughts on The Exception (1:20:07), Kirikou and the Sorceress (1:24:19), and a double feature of The Philadelphia Story/Palm Beach Story (1:27:06). Meanwhile, I caught This is John (1:32:04) and Videodrome in 35mm (1:36:37) – then my Goodwill Corner featuring a surprise announcement (1:41:08).
The episode in which Carmike, Yahoo, Redbox, Pinewood Studios, and Vizio have new corporate overlords and we question the position of the little guy, Luc Besson is sued for plagiarism, Geoff Johns is the new President of DC Entertainment, Disney is rebooting/sequeling The Rocketeer, and the Rio Olympics are going to be in 4K. Plus, the latest on Nintendo’s NX, SecondLife VR, Avengers: Infinity War, Sony’s troubled Uncharted adaptation, Yoga Hosers’s release date, and Viacom’s Comedy Central almost sues sister network CBS over Stephen Colbert’s likeness.
The episode in which Steve didn’t have internet so we record over the telephone, Deadpool is getting a sequel, Johnny Depp is the new Invisible Man, Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo went live, Apple is joining the original programming game, all of Netflix’s content is stored on Amazon servers, Syfy is making a show that will be told in part through VR, Warner Bros shouting girl power with their DC Super Hero Girls, more calendar dates, Transformers news, EuropaCorp buys the next James Ponsoldt film, James Franco is forever busy (again), and Amblin Partners first film might have its talent already. Plus we talk Amy Schumer, Lionsgate bringing Saw back, Kevin Smith getting another TV show, and torrent streaming.
