Episode 115: Those Damn Time Traveling Robots

Welcome back everyone to this weeks edition of Sprecken ze Geek.  This week we review Terminator: Genisys, our streaming review of Nightcrawler, discuss what we're looking forward to at this years San Diego Comic Con and review season 1 episode 3 of True Detective.  As always we will give you a spoiler free review of Terminator with a spoiler filled review at the end of the show followed by the True Detective episode spoiler review.

This week we also review last weeks streaming suggestion of Nightcrawler.  We both really enjoyed this crazy ride of a movie.  Jake Gyllenhaal's performance really is stellar and down right creepy.  Though Bat would have liked it to go on 20 mins or more to see the 'end' of the story I actually enjoyed this movie as it was.  I basically viewed it as a villain movie, one where we get to see the bad guy essentially win.  How he does and what he does is truly unnerving and it makes for a hell of an interesting watch when you think about the drought of original movies.  I gave it 4/5 and Bat gave it 3/5 but we both highly recommend this movie to any and all.

Next week's streaming review of Rose Water comes from my own queue and can be found on Netflix.  Jon Stewart took time off of the Daily Show to direct this movie inspired by actual events.  I called it a documentary on the podcast but it's a bit more of a dramatization but I'm still looking forward to this watch.

We've also included the most recent episode via the embedded link below

Here are the two trailer cuts we mention in the podcast.  The first one is what I would deem a perfect tease (though a bit long) of the movie.  Saw this one and was perfectly fine to be on board for the movie.  Then there is the second one that only Bat saw before the movie and we both (now that I've seen the movie and the trailer) agree that it gave away just too much.  Watch the first one by all means but be warry of the second one for spoilers.  We think its best to watch it after the movie.

Trailer #1- okay to watch

Trailer #2-  **spoiler ridden** , you have been warned
