Episode 120: Fantastic Four meets the Internet Hate Train, choo choo

Welcome back everyone to another episode of Sprecken ze Geek.   We were on such a roll with two weeks on time that we thought we deserved a week off... it was totally planned and everything.  But here we are back and in full force as well bring you a spoiler free and spoiler filled review of Fantastic Four as well as a quickie review of Mission Impossible: Rouge Nation.  We also discuss last episodes streaming review of Hercules before we dig into this weeks Nerd News: Sesame Street coming to HBO, DC Powerless 
TV show announced, Games Comm Announcements, Constantine coming to Arrow, Black Panther Stunt suit, Beetle Juice 2, Hateful 8 trailer, Westworld teaser for HBO, and Some early D23 news.

For this weeks streaming review we watched the Rock's Hercules.  Right out of the gate we both weren't really expecting much.  I personally thought it was a perfectly OK action movie and gave it 3/5 stars, nothing great about it and no rush to see it.  But Bat took many issues with it in terms of acting/CG/story and just over predictability, he gave it 2/5 stars.  Although our scores are different I totally understand and agree with Bat on most all of his points.  This movie is not good, it's okay at best, but it is easily forgettable.  I loved  the approach of essentially doing what the Clive Owen King Arthur movie did to the Arthurian legend but with Hercules.  But overall this movie felt like an unfinished and unrealized concept of a good movie.  Skip it or see it, you won't be missing too much either way.


Next weeks streaming suggestion comes from listener Kristi, she previously suggested Grave Encounters for an earlier episode.  The Guest is a movie neither of us have heard of before but it looks to have some good ratings online so we're both looking forward going into this one blind and seeing what we get.
