Episode 121: Fass Ass

Welcome back everyone to another episode of Sprecken ze Geek.   We are now both back and ready to talk! No theatrical review this week but we do discuss last episodes streaming review of The Guest and then dive right into this weeks Nerd News: Lionsgate making a Borderlands movie, First images of Michael Fassbender's outfit from Assassins Creed movie, Suicide Squad wraps filming, Metal Gear 5 and lament Star Wars spoilers (without really talking about them... because we hate spoilers).  

We also do our Summer movie wrap up from the list we put together on Episode 104. This is where we go over all the movies we did and didn't see and give our closing thoughts. 

Final tally and cost of each of our movie watching season. Cost is calculated with average $9 ticket price
                    Total Movies Watched             Cost
Bat                        10                                    $90
Hammer                14                                    $126

Also back on Episode 106 we decided to put a bet on Antman's domestic gross as laid out below

Just so we have it in writing dear listeners here is our SzG Hammer vs Bat Smirnoff Ice Bet.  Bat predicts that Ant-Man will be Marvels  first "flop" while I protest that it will be an equal success at least to other Movies.  We came to our estimated Box Office amounts by looking at past movies and Bat is saying that the movie will make less than $150 million while I'm saying that it will make $180 million.  We're counting this only for it's theatrical run and domestic only.   The stakes?  We're using "Bros Icing Bros" as the basis for our "rewards."  If Bat wins I shall chug a Smirnoff Ice (flavor of his choice) on bended knee and if I win he will do the same.  Now If it's in between the two then we will have a chug off.  All of this will be posted on YouTube for your viewing pleasure.  So let the best (me) man win!

Needless to say we both lost with Antman's current (and for the matter of this bed we will call it Final) Domestic Gross is sitting at 161 Milion.  There was video proof taken and it will be posted as soon as the Webmistress gets the video to us (funny enough we mention how that was a bad idea on this episode). 

For this weeks streaming review we watched The Guest which was suggested by listener Kristi.  For this movie we both went in with no expectations and came out with mixed reactions.  The movie is far from great but there are some bits of promise here.  Sadly, neither of us felt that it ever really panned out.  It felt like the movie was trying to be two things and we both agreed that it should have stuck with the idea that he was a disturbed drifter/discharged soldier.  The 'sci-fi' twist felt rushed and just ruined the momentum of the movie.  We both gave it a hesitant 3 out of 5 stars and warn anyone who ventures into the movie to possibly look elsewhere.


Next weeks streaming suggestion comes from Bat's wife Sarah.  This time we are treated to the 'wonderful' acting duo of Hayden Christenson and Nicolas Cage in Outcast.  Watch the trailer and be either mortified or very curious... we're a little of both.
