Episode 84: Posh Shattner

Welcome back to your regularly scheduled week in geek with Bat and Hammer.  This week we lament the problems with the Epix app on PS3 as offer up the chance for my to redo my submission for this weeks streaming review since neither of us was able to watch "The Wolf of Wall Street."  So since it's the wonderful month of October we will be watching "Escape From Tomorrow."  I figure we should try and theme this months streaming suggestions in the horror genre, which Bat is all too excited about since that is all his wheel house.

If you want to join us on our first horror movie of the month you can find this gem on Netflix (warning it looks like a solid 2 1/2 stars). You can send us your reviews or your suggestions for our next streaming review via Facebook, Twitter or email us at

This weeks Nerd News includes: Joaquin Phoenix out for Dr strange but rumors of Ethan Hawk possibly taking on the mantle of Sorcerer Supreme, Possible Shatner in Star Trek 3 and a discussion about Marvel settling out of court with the Jack Kirby estate.  We also have a Trailer Review of some of the biggest trailers that dropped recently.

Trailer Review

Inside Out:
This is definitely more of a teaser rather than a trailer due to it heavily relying on your previous experiences with older Pixar movies but doesn't really provide us with much of a feel for the movie itself.  We aren't feeling too much love for the trailer but we are most likely going to be in the theater due to it being Pixar.

Jupiter Ascending:
This movie looks like it will be filling our Sci-Fi quota right along with Nolan's Intersteller.  The effects look good and the action looks fun, even if Tatum looks absolutely strange.  We are going to be in the theater for this one.

Taken 3:
I think I'm right with Bat on this one, if this movie went by any other name I would be pretty excited for it.  But due to being tied to the "Taken" franchise I'm feeling a little lukewarm.  Looks like more of the same but for some reason that doesn't get me excited for it.

The interview:
Hard to believe this movie really caused such a stir in the global political world but it really doesn't seem to stir much up in terms of comedy.  We are both trepidacious about this one.

John Wick:
Keanu + guns is always a good formula for Cinematic fun and this movie looks to carry on that tradition.  It really seems to be a good oll vengeance and shoot em up type flick and we both are excited to watch it.

Dumb and Dumber To:
This one looks ridiculous and we both know its going to be dumb but we are both going to be right there in the audience to wittiness all of its stupidity 

Big Hero Six:
Now I said in the Podcast that I recommend against seeing the new trailer for this one because I feel like it gives away too much story.  But if you aren't already sold on this movie like we are then feel free to learn a bit more about it below.  I didn't post the embedded just in case people accidentally clicked on it.

Here are the answers to last weeks Podquestion of what is the scariest movie(s) you have seen.

Charles     The Exorcist- due to his Catholic upbringing
                  Fire in the Sky - Because... Fuck alien abductions that's why
Tristan       He does not remember the name but it involved sharp knives flying at people but                   he knows its definitely not Carrie
WW           Mimic - because Guillermo del Toro + Bugs = stuff of nightmares 
Bat            Jaws - because it makes you forever afraid of whats in the water
Hammer    Flatliners - because really its a total mind fuck
                  Event Horizon- because its a total mind space

Our next Podquestion relates to the Jack Kirby estate discussion.  Do you think that Marvel should have settled with the Jack Kirby estate?  

We want to hear your answers so let us know via Facebook, Twitter or email us at
