Episode 138: Porn Advice

Welcome back to another episode of SzG for the new year.  This week we tackle the smattering of new DC news, Wonder Woman sneak peak and new Suicide Squad trailer as well as our streaming review of Ridiculous 6.

This weeks Streaming Suggestion of The Ridiculous 6 was brought you by myself. Again it just seems like Adam Sandler movies have lost their adorable buffoon sheen.  This one has Sandler playing a straight faced Zohan esque character who inadvertently gathers up 5 of his half brothers to save his father.  Bat really, really, really hated me for this one and says stay far away from it.  If he could have given it less than a star then he would.  I thought it was poorly executed, not the worst but far from the best. I gave it 2 stars because honestly you are honestly better served by spending your time else where.


 


As my retribution Bat has determined that we are watching 50 Shades of Grey for next weeks Streaming Suggestion.  I have heard nothing good about this movie so I'm sure we're going to have fun tearing this apart... might need some booze. Check you the trailer and see what you think.

Episode 137: Exhausted Bat and the Sleepy Hammer

Welcome back to the first full(ish) normal episode of SzG for the new year.  Took us a little bit but we're back on the wagon with our first streaming review of the year, a sprinkling of some nerd news and our podquestion.  This weeks Nerd news is pretty slim but it includes: 
Dark Cloud 2 coming to PS4 and the Cloverfield 2 trailer.

This year is also off to a bit of a rough start with two major celebrity deaths rocking us.  First was David Bowie and then Alan Rickman, both of these great entertainers were taken by Cancer.  Sometimes it can be hard to explain why these celebrity deaths affect us so.  But There was a wonderful tweet I saw online that really put it into perspective. 
We both would just like to say to David Bowie and Alan Rickman, thanks for all the memories.

This weeks Streaming Suggestion, submitted by Mando, was UnBranded.  This film was half documentary and half challenge attempt.  The documentary side of the movie has it addressing the issue of wild horses on federally preserved land and the issues with sustainability due to booming populations.  This honestly is a topic i had absolutely no knowledge about prior to this movie, and as with most documentary movies this one is skewed towards the message it wants to spread.  That our current process in simply unsustainable.  

The other part of the movie has 4 cowboys training 13 wild horses and taking them on a roughly 5 month trek from the US Mexico boarder to the US Canada boarder.  This journey has a little less of a reason besides that "we did it because we could and few others have" mentality.  Not saying it's not impressive, because damn it is, but it does seem a bit less focused at times.  

The cinematography is beautiful and the sights that they capture are truly a wonder to behold.  Both Bat and myself liked this one, though he gave it a 3 while I gave it a 4.  We both thought it was worth the watch.  If you're down for something a little bit different why dint you give this ones a chance.  

 


Kind of keeping with the wild west theme, next weeks Streaming Suggestion is going to be The Ridiculous 6.  This one's my fault, well it is if it's bad.  But I do have hopes for a few laughs from this one.  Check you the trailer and see what you think.

Episode 135: 2015 Year End Review

Hello for the first time of 2016!  We are back and ready to dive back into podcasting for you, our dear listeners.  We're going to start this year off with a review of last year.  Including Favorite/Worst Theatrical Movies, Favorite/Worst Streaming reviews, Favorite Games, some of our favorite memories and what we're looking forward to this next year.

Thanks to everyone for all the feed back and shout outs for our Star Wars: The Force Awakens spoiler chat-cast.  We had so much fun putting it together and honestly we are thinking about doing it again, maybe for Batman V Superman.  So keep your ears pealed!


We're also starting up this year with our first streaming suggestion from a listener/guest of the show, Mando, who recommended we watch Unbranded.  This one's a documentary about horse, that's all he'd tell us but he did say it was good so it's on our docket!  Give the trailer a gander below if you're interested in joining in on the streaming fun.
