Episode 108: Revengers Age of Nerd Rage

Holy crap in some corn flakes (that's a thing right?)!  Avengers: Age of Ultron is here and so begins the 2015 Summer Movie season!  Damn right I'm excited, I mean we started this whole thing because of our love of movies and this is like Christmas to cinemagoers or a time were your wallet literally weeps over the amount of money you spend....  Either way it should be an entertaining couple of months and if this movie is any sign of whats to come, sign me the hell up!  

So back to business as always we will give you a spoiler free review of the movie as well as a spoiler filled review at the end of the show.  Also keeping with the past weeks we review episodes 3 & 4 of Game of Thrones season 5.  Not too much in terms of nerd news but it's still some good stuff as we discuss Suicide Squad cast pictures, P.T. and the possible collapse of Konami, Joss Wedon quitting twitter and we finish it all off with a bit of Hammer's Soap box.

This weeks streaming review is the HBO documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.  Over all we both felt that the documentary was alright, a bit long and didn't really provide to much new information about Scientology as a whole.  Definitely not bad by any means but merely looking at it as a documentary it was pretty standard.  The subject matter however was a wonderful conversation starter.


We all know how much I love horror movies (sarcasm)... okay maybe I'm being dramatic because I do like quite a few.  But this weeks streaming review The Babadook, care of Bat, really has me freaked out.  Just watch the trailer below and tell me what you think.  I foresee nightmares in my future....

If you want to join us on this streaming movie 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
