Episode 273: Adventures of Legman and the Tall Building

Hello everyone and welcome to our week in geek! We hit the theaters to watch the Rock's most recent movie foray (that's at least 3 so far this year!) by catching Skyscrapper.  Was this the new DieHard that we wanted or was it more of A Good Day to Die Hard?  Listen in to find out as we bring you both our spoiler filled and spoiler free reviews. We also discuss what very little news we have with the new Joker Origins movie and the new Neill Blomkamp movie.  We also review Professor Marston for this week's streaming review and answer our Podquestion of what bug power would you want?


This week's streaming review was the origin story of Wonder Woman, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.  This movie was pretty much the story we had expected, though both of us had heard rumors of the origins of Wonder Woman neither of us had looked into the history much.  While this movie no doubt takes some artistic licence with it merely being  "based on a true story" we both are very curious to see what the differences between reality and fiction are.  The acting is solid and the story is a pretty engaging time capsule of a time long past.  The origins and purpose of Wonder Woman are far different than what some may have expected.  But the exploration into Polyamory and BDSM really paints a much better picture than you will ever get from the likes of 50 Shades.  We both liked this movie and recommend giving it a watch when you have the time.

 

The next movie up for streaming review we're hitting up Hulu again for some dramatic story telling with Detroit.  We both very much wanted to see this movie back when it came out in theaters and are very curious to watch this movie and expect some hard hitting drama.

Episode 272: Ant Man and the Wasp Lady

Hello everyone and welcome to our week in geek! Some how we were surprised by a Marvel movie as we unexpectedly hit the theaters to see Antman and the Wasp.  Don't worry, we provide both our spoiler free and spoiler-filled reviews of the largest adventure for our tiny heroes.  We also bring you our streaming review of the Departed as well as talk a bit about toxic fandoms and we answer this week's podquestion of which real movie prop would you own.

This week's streaming review was the much talked about The Departed.   Holy crap was this a hell of a movie.  Mind you it's long and the ending felt a bit off but the rest of the movie is solid.  Seeing two top actors star as co-main characters is pretty damn intense.  Being able to watch two men rise up on different sides of the law while being rats for the other side is full of some crazy drama.  Both Damon and DiCaprio provide some fantastic acting and really bring both of the characters to life.  We both highly recommend this movie to anyone.  My person issue is with the ending that goes a bit off the rails and seems to come out of nowhere with Wahlberg's character having the final word.  But regardless, give this movie your time and attention, you won't be disappointed.  

 

The next movie up for streaming review has been one that both Bat and I have wanted to see for a while. Professor Marston and the Wonder Women tells the tale of the man who created Wonder Woman and the two women in his life that inspired her.  Check out this drama heavy movie on Hulu.

Episode 271: She's Bengay

Hello everyone and welcome to our week in geek! We're taking a little break from the theaters for a little dinner ramen and some good oll geeky talk.  Besides the free shit good shit for July there's not much else to talk about.  So what do we do?  Naturally we go waaaaay off topic and end up waxing poetic about Last of Us and how people get it so wrong in such spectacular ways.  We also actually remembered to answer this week's podquestion of what is the oldest shirt that you own in your closet.

This week's streaming review was the Netflix Original The Outsider and boy were we both bored/disappointed.  The movie itself is really an unimpressive take on a stranger in a strange land. I think the biggest topic of conversation that was brought up between us was Jared Leto.  Mainly it was whether or not we actually like this guy.  As we look back on it we're both pretty sure that we don't like him, and in this movie especially his acting was incredibly wooden and bland.  We both highly recommend you skip this one.



Since The Outsider was such a spectacular disappointment we decided to finally watch the much talked about The Departed.  Here's to hoping we will get a better mafia movie out of this one.  You can watch along on Netflix.

Episode 270: Jurassic World: Fallen Franchise

Hello everyone and welcome to our week in geek! The summer block busters keep on rolling as we hit the theaters again and watch Jurassic Park:Fallen Kingdom. Is it good? Is it Great?  Or does it fall short of our low expectations? Well listen in on our spoiler free and spoiler filled podcast (at the end of our show) to find out what we think.  We also talk about the trailer for Creed 2, the cancellation of the Star Wars Story movies and a fan led fund raiser to remake TLJ.

Beyond Skyline is such a strange movie.  Not for the normal reasons that we might call a movie strange, this movie is strange because of it's origin.  Yes it is a sequelto the 2010 crap fest of an alien invasion.  Yes it's got the star power of a SyFy made for TV movie.  But... it's also not a bad movie.  It's also not a great movie mind you, just that we expected it to be an absolutely terrible movie and it's not.  The sequel easily has a higher budget and better plot line than the original and almost skews into a strange alien v martial arts/robots/gun runners... hell it just gets strange.  But, again, it's not bad.  If you do happen to watch it you will see an entirely serviceable scifi alien invasion movie that is better than Independence Day 2 (not a high mark).  On the other hand, if you skip this you really won't be missing out on anything.  Bat gave it a thumbs up (because it's one of the two) and I gave it a thumbs down.


This week's streaming review comes from me.  We're going to watch the Netflix Original The Outsider.

Episode 267: Incredibles Too!

Hello everyone and welcome to our week in geek! This week we hit the theaters for the long
awaited Pixar sequel, Incredibles 2.  Is it good? Is it Great?  Is it, dare I say incredible? Well listen in on our spoiler free and spoiler filled podcast (at the end of our show) to find out what we think.  We, along with our friend Terry, also get to digest all of the E3 goodness as well as berate your favorite hammer for being the tool he is and forgetting (likely story) to watch our streaming review.  Some how, with all of our years of Podcasting experience, we again forget the podquestion.

Beyond Skyline is still on Netflix and is still our streaming review.

Episode 266: The Last Jedi The Fan Edit PCF Panel 2018

Hello everyone and welcome to our week in geek!  We're back to the non standard podcasts this week due to Hammer going out on Beerfest adventures this past weekend. This podcast is our 2nd and last panel from PCF where we roasted The Last Jedi.  There was a good crowd and we discovered that Bat apparently hates life. Though I will admit we do a terrible job of restating people's comments and questions, despite me saying that we would in the beginning.  This is a live podcast and the audio quality may not always be the best.  But you do get to hear us rant and rave about all the things that TLJ could have done better. 

We will be back to the normal format next week with our review of Hotel Artemis and so much E3 goodness.  So thank you for listening and make sure to continue following our adventures using any of the means below.

Episode 267: Solo Adventure

Hello everyone and welcome to our week in geek! We are back in the groove again!  Back from our adventures from PCC... err PCF...well now PFF... screw this that's too many name changes.  It's not like it's the artist formerly known as Prince.  Anyways, tangent aside, we have our spoiler free and spoiler filled review of Solo: A Star Wars Story.  Spoilers, we liked it a lot more than we expected to.  We also review our last streaming suggestion of Andres the Giant, talk up some Nerd News and dish out some free shit good shit.

This week's streaming suggestion was Andre the Giant on HBOgo.  While I had heard from many people that this bio-documentary was a tear-jerker, I have you say I left with dry eyes.  Not to say the movie was terrible, we both just thought that it was more of an informational ride than a in-depth look in to the friendly giant.  There was even a good portion of the movie that really skewed away from Andre and focused more on Hulk and McMan and seemed like we diverted into a WWF history segment.  Both of us are pretty on the fence of whether or not to recommend the movie, we had a decent enough time but you're not missing much if you don't watch it.  

 


Next week we dare to step back into the terrifyingly bad movie verse of Skyline with 
Beyond Skyline on Netflix.  Blame this one on Bat.
