Episode 273: Adventures of Legman and the Tall Building

Hello everyone and welcome to our week in geek! We hit the theaters to watch the Rock's most recent movie foray (that's at least 3 so far this year!) by catching Skyscrapper.  Was this the new DieHard that we wanted or was it more of A Good Day to Die Hard?  Listen in to find out as we bring you both our spoiler filled and spoiler free reviews. We also discuss what very little news we have with the new Joker Origins movie and the new Neill Blomkamp movie.  We also review Professor Marston for this week's streaming review and answer our Podquestion of what bug power would you want?


This week's streaming review was the origin story of Wonder Woman, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.  This movie was pretty much the story we had expected, though both of us had heard rumors of the origins of Wonder Woman neither of us had looked into the history much.  While this movie no doubt takes some artistic licence with it merely being  "based on a true story" we both are very curious to see what the differences between reality and fiction are.  The acting is solid and the story is a pretty engaging time capsule of a time long past.  The origins and purpose of Wonder Woman are far different than what some may have expected.  But the exploration into Polyamory and BDSM really paints a much better picture than you will ever get from the likes of 50 Shades.  We both liked this movie and recommend giving it a watch when you have the time.

 

The next movie up for streaming review we're hitting up Hulu again for some dramatic story telling with Detroit.  We both very much wanted to see this movie back when it came out in theaters and are very curious to watch this movie and expect some hard hitting drama.

Episode 272: Ant Man and the Wasp Lady

Hello everyone and welcome to our week in geek! Some how we were surprised by a Marvel movie as we unexpectedly hit the theaters to see Antman and the Wasp.  Don't worry, we provide both our spoiler free and spoiler-filled reviews of the largest adventure for our tiny heroes.  We also bring you our streaming review of the Departed as well as talk a bit about toxic fandoms and we answer this week's podquestion of which real movie prop would you own.

This week's streaming review was the much talked about The Departed.   Holy crap was this a hell of a movie.  Mind you it's long and the ending felt a bit off but the rest of the movie is solid.  Seeing two top actors star as co-main characters is pretty damn intense.  Being able to watch two men rise up on different sides of the law while being rats for the other side is full of some crazy drama.  Both Damon and DiCaprio provide some fantastic acting and really bring both of the characters to life.  We both highly recommend this movie to anyone.  My person issue is with the ending that goes a bit off the rails and seems to come out of nowhere with Wahlberg's character having the final word.  But regardless, give this movie your time and attention, you won't be disappointed.  

 

The next movie up for streaming review has been one that both Bat and I have wanted to see for a while. Professor Marston and the Wonder Women tells the tale of the man who created Wonder Woman and the two women in his life that inspired her.  Check out this drama heavy movie on Hulu.

Episode 271: She's Bengay

Hello everyone and welcome to our week in geek! We're taking a little break from the theaters for a little dinner ramen and some good oll geeky talk.  Besides the free shit good shit for July there's not much else to talk about.  So what do we do?  Naturally we go waaaaay off topic and end up waxing poetic about Last of Us and how people get it so wrong in such spectacular ways.  We also actually remembered to answer this week's podquestion of what is the oldest shirt that you own in your closet.

This week's streaming review was the Netflix Original The Outsider and boy were we both bored/disappointed.  The movie itself is really an unimpressive take on a stranger in a strange land. I think the biggest topic of conversation that was brought up between us was Jared Leto.  Mainly it was whether or not we actually like this guy.  As we look back on it we're both pretty sure that we don't like him, and in this movie especially his acting was incredibly wooden and bland.  We both highly recommend you skip this one.



Since The Outsider was such a spectacular disappointment we decided to finally watch the much talked about The Departed.  Here's to hoping we will get a better mafia movie out of this one.  You can watch along on Netflix.
