Episode 285: Fantastic Crimes and Where to Dumbledore


Hello everyone, welcome back to another week in geek. 

First and foremost, with all of our joking aside, we really do want to send all our best thoughts towards Stan Lee's family and friends.  You sir, will sorely be missed. 


Okay, back to normal bs, this week we bring you our magically spoiler free and spoiler filled review of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.  Are you excited for some more wand slinging, because we know we are!  We also discuss our streaming review of (groan) Fifty Shades Freed along with some nerd news regarding Sony pulling out of E3 and the Detective Pikachu.  We also answer this week's podquestion of what was your favorite strategy guide.





Oh sometimes I have to ask why we do this to ourselves... but this week our streaming review was Fifty Shades Freed on HBOgo.  What can we say that we haven't already said?  These two are just plain terrible for each other and for themselves.  Manipulative, childish, poorly planned... well the list goes on and on.  But it says something when the most boring part of the movie is it's sex scenes.  Our biggest complaint over the past 3 movies, beyond everything else, is the sheer lack of chemistry between the two main characters.  There is a literal void where their chemistry should be.  It's like watching a movie that's inside a movie ironically where the actors are mocking soap opera actors by just reciting their lines.  The best part about this movie is when it ends because you know that's all of them for now.  Skip it, you know you want to.


Next week we're going to be taking a bit of a pallet cleanser by watching the live action adaptation to the anime Bleach on Netflix.  I've heard good things about it so here's to hoping I didn't just doom us to watch a travesty in motion.

Episode 285: Free State of Alright Alright Alright


Hello everyone, welcome back to another week in geek. This week we discuss our streaming review of Free State of Jones along with some nerd news regarding Microsoft's recent acquisition, FF15 DLC canceled and Diablo Mobile Reception.  We also answer this week's podquestion of what song you wanted to see featured in Red Dead 2.



We start the month of November off with a hopeful epic of Free State of Jones on Netflix.  We both were hoping for something more than this movie was able to provide.  We were wanting something epic and a story that sprawled the Civil War.  Unfortunately we were left with a rather disjointed movie instead. There were many "epic" things that happened during this movie but sadly they way they were presented just left the viewer (us) wanting more.  We think the movie might have done better if it focused less on Newt as a person and more of the events that surrounded him.  We both gave this one a thumbs down.

 

Next week we're going to be watching the romantic epic,  Fifty Shades Freed.  Yup it's gonna be "great" but at least it's over after this one.  You can watch along on HBOgo.

Episode 284: Is This Real Life? Is This Just Fantasy


Hello everyone, welcome back to another week in geek. This week we bring you a whole mess of stuff with Bat's recap of LA Comic Con, Disneyland and our spoiler free and spoiler filled review of Bohemian Rhapsody. We also talk about nerd news, our streaming review of The Witch and some free shit good shit.




Again normally October is our Scary Movie month, but sadly we missed most of it and focused on just one movie. That movie, sadly, was The Witch.  Given by the use of sadly in that sentence I think you can tell that we really did not enjoy the movie.  What was hyped up by many as one of the scariest movies to come out, was actually a nonsensical borefest.  We both were excited with the beginning of the movie about what crazy shit was about to hit us. But that's were any of the scares ended, what was left was more than an hour of old English and non connected plot lines. We both can't advise enough to avoid this movie at all costs.



Next week we're going to be watching Free State of Jones on Netflix.
