Episode 94: Not so Hip to the Fellowship

The show continues with another week filled with our special brand of buffoonery with both Bat and I bringing you some good tidbits of nerd news, streaming reviews and free shit, good shit.

This week we watched the Fanboy's recommendation of Rise of the Fellowship.  Where to start with this one... well lets not bury the lead.  It's not good and we both gave it 2 stars.  What I assumed might be a movie equivalent to a LotR version Fanboys (a BandH favorite) turned out be something far worse.  I think Bat put it best when he said that there are movies that pay homage and jokingly poke fun at itself as well as nerds in general... this movie is not that.  We generally felt like it was full on making fun of that fanbase that this movie was specifically aimed at.  It really felt haphazard in it's flow and though it had it's fair share of good moments they really failed to come together in a cohesive fun movie.  Avoid this one and just watch a documentary on New Zealand‎, you'll have a better time.

I, Frankenstein is next weeks Streaming Review which comes from Bat's own queue.  We both agree that Aaron Eckhart is a good actor but from everything we have heard this just isn't a good movie at all... proven by the almost 1 and a 3/4's star rating on Netflix.  Bring your popcorn and don't hesitate to bring some entertainment to this one as we expect it to be a stinker.

If you want to join us on our third streaming movie of the new year you can find this movie on Netflix. You can send us your reviews or your suggestions for our next streaming review via Facebook, Twitter or email us at

This Episode we discuss the Antman Trailer, possibility of BvS being split into 2 movies, rumors that the trailer will premier in front of Jupiter's Ascending, PSNow getting a subscription option, Scar Jo cast in Ghost in the Shell movie, Gambit movie release date announced, Dare Devil Netflix premier date announced.

Free Shit, Good Shit:
This week be sure to grab the Image Humble Bundle to get some great collections for previous Websense suggestions like Saga and Sex Criminals for a ridiculously good price while also donating to a charity.  Nerd out and help out at the same time, sounds like a home run to me.
