Episode 69 A: Maleficent is a hard name to make fun of

Welcome dear friends back to another week in geek!  This week we review the new Disney live action embodiment of Maleficent.  As usual we provide a Spoiler Free but if you want to really delve into what we thought of all aspects of the movie check out the Spoilerific review at the end of the podcast.

We also discuss this week’s Streaming Review, Pain and Gain.  This was one of those strange movies that I wanted to see in the theaters but just never got around to it and it’s a movie that Bat all together just wanted to avoid.  After watching it though I can say this one was a definite “wait for streaming” movie. We both enjoyed it enough to both give it 3/5 rating on Netflix and say you should give this one a watch.  But we both agreed that this is a one off movie, not really worth repeat viewings.   Listen in if you want to get our thoughts as to what we did and didn’t like about this one


Bats suggestion for next week’s Streaming Review is called TheDirties.  This movie was promoted through Kevin Smith’s movie club, calling it one of “the most important films of the year.” The movie is about two best friends  filming a comedy about getting revenge on the bullies at their high school. Only, one of them isn't joking.   Check out the trailer below to see what you are in for.  Also Variety did a pretty interesting article on the creation of the film that can be found here.

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

Wrapping things up this week we answer our SzG Podquestion, "What is the next Disney movie that you want to see get the Live Action treatment?" We had quite a few good answers this week.
