Episode 139: Fifty Shades of Nope

Welcome back to another episode of SzG.  Sorry for the missed show last week but I had to catch my fair share of death.  Can't have my co-host doing all of the dying on his lonesome.  But now that I'm in working order, of sorts, we're back and ready to talk about this weeks nerd news:  Elizabeth Banks cast in Power Rangers, Dangerous Golf announced, Star Wars Battle front DLC, possible Hasbro and Matel merger, more DeLoreans, Lego TFA,and Flash showing up on Supergirl.  We also bring you our streaming review of 50 Shades of Grey and our series review of True Detective season 2.

This weeks Streaming Punishment of 50 Shades of Grey was brought to you by Bat.  And I can tell you quite succinctly that there really isn't anything redeeming about this movie.  Its just plain boring.  There is no chemistry and honestly I could give two shits about the characters.  Even the 'shock value' is severely diminished as it felt like a bad Cinemax after hours movie with writing done by a part-time Lifetime intern.  Please do your self a favor and find something more productive to do with your time that waste it on this movie or it's possible sequels.


Alright, an armistice has been agreed upon and we will stop intentionally throwing the bad movies back and forth.  so for next weeks streaming review we are going to be watching The Theory of Everything.  We saw a horrible performance by Redmayne in Jupiter's Ascending but everyone is saying that he was magnificent in this movie.  We're looking forward to seeing if that's the case and hope you will join us on this adventure. 

You can suggest streaming movies that you want us to watch and review on future episodes that are on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime or HBOgo.
