Episode 119: Gone Vacation

Welcome back everyone to another on time edition of Sprecken ze Geek.   That makes it two in a row!  I'm so proud.  This week we bring you a review of Vacation, along with my review of Train Wreck.  Both of these are spoiler free mainly because we didn't want to ruin the jokes for Vacation and Train Wreck was only seen by myself.  We also bring you our streaming review of Gone Girl, nerd news including Jena Malone casting rumors, Chris Pine in Wonder Woman, Voting coming to future PS plus games, Channing Tatum leaving Gambit followed by True Detective season 1 episode 6 review.

For this weeks streaming review we watched Gone Girl (or as I called it Gone Baby, Gone).  Besides knowing it involved a missing wife and Ben Affleck we both went into this one pretty blind.  And I can say that I'm rather glad that we did as this movie is intense.  There were plenty of chances that this movie could have been spoiled but we both had been pretty lucky.  I think we both came out of this one thinking that we (meaning me) should be careful dating... like holy shit this movie could give you trust issues.  But we both really enjoyed it and rated it on our Netflix scale (since HBO doesn't have one) with Bat giving it 4/5 and I gave it 5/5.  Definitely give this one a watch.


Next up, we continue our queue clearing rush with Hercules staring the Rock.  Out of the two Herc movies that came out that year this one looked the best as well as it seems to focus on his labors.  Here's hoping that we're in for some fun action.
