Episode 66: Assault on Geek Street

Welcome dear listener to another week in geek with Bat and Hammer.  We are joined by Mando and TK, good friends of the show and first time guests.  We start off with our streaming review of Assault on Wall Street and then with our powers combined we tackle a plethora of nerd news   This weeks topics include: DC's proposed 9 new movies, Netflix price increase, Drive Club PSplus folly, Gotham trailer, Agent Carter ordered to series, a Comic Spidey Retcon, Marvel Video Games getting a shared universe, Borderlands 2 Vita, Eve Memorial vandalized, Showtime helping with Halo show and Power Rangers getting a new movie. 

**Sorry for the tapping you hear in the audio this week, it was a mix of an unsteady mic and extremely bad mic etiquette on our side.  

Funny enough both Bat and I gave this movie 3/5 on Netflix.   Which is surprising because if It weren't for the recommendations from friends I wouldn't have made it past finding out this being a Uwe Boll movie...  The guy had a rash of horrific video game movies that are just plain bad(see his IMDB page to get the full list).  The movie is far from great but it definitely was a fun watch, and worth giving it a shot even with Boll's past movies in mind.  Decent acting and fun shooting abound in this Boondock Saints-esque Vigilante movie.

For our next streaming review comes from Hammer's suggestion of the Liam Neeson survival movie "The Grey."  

This movie can be found on Netlfix so If you want to be a part of the review next week make sure to send us your reviews via Facebook, Twitter or email us at
