Episode 290: Will the Real Spiderman Please Step Up

Hello everyone, welcome back to another week in geek. This week we're super excited to bring you our spoiler free and spoiler filled reviews of Spider Man: Into the Spiderverse.  We also discuss our streaming review of The Ballad of Buster Scruggs along with some nerd news regarding the unannounced cancellation of the Punisher Netflix show and I talk about my experience with Doki Doki Literature Club  Lastly we wrap up this week's show by answering this week's podquestion of what has been the game you've had the most fun with this year.





This week we watched the new Cohen Brother's flick The Ballad of Buster Scruggs on Netflix. Both of us have to say that we were genuinely surprised (pleasantly even) that this move was actually more of a vignette style movie than one continuous story.  Buster Scruggs was only in the first of the 6 vignette even.  The other 5 were more slice of life in the wild west.  While our favorites varied between Bat and myself we both agreed that the first bunch of the stories were the strongest.  With the last 2-3 starting to drag on.  I absolutely loved the Prospector story and Bat really enjoyed the Pan Shot one.  While Bat was really anxious going into this one he came around and gave it a thumbs up, as I did.  While not all of the stories are strong, and they don't connect in any noticeable way, we both still had a good time watching them.


Next week we're watching the Kurt Russell lead The Christmas Chronicles on Netflix.  Join us in watching what we hope might be a fun new addition to the Christmas movie repertoire.

Episode 289: Not 290

Hello everyone, welcome back to another week in geek. We're still keeping with the short and sweet episodes by sticking with what we do best, bullshittery.  We discuss our streaming review of the Rampage.  And we also discuss nerd news with the fall of Tumblr, The Avengers End Game and Captain Marvel trailers, Game Award announcements, some free shit good shit and answering this week's podquestion of which natural disaster scares you the most.



This week we watched another Rock-rific movie with Rampage.  While there was some promise of a cheese fest action flick we were only teased a bit with some of the fights between the monsters.  This fact alone left us a little out in the cold, hoping for more action.  While it's not terrible it's also not great.  The chemistry between the Rock and George was good but the rest of the movie just left us wanting more.  You can skip this one or watch it, either way I don't think you'll be missing much.

 




Next week we're watching the new Cohen Brother's flick in all of it's strangeness.  Bat is already groaning at the thought.  But you can watch along as we pick The Ballad of Buster Scruggs on Netflix this week.

Episode 288: Hurr-i-cane

Hello everyone, welcome back to another week in geek. We're keeping with the short and sweet episodes by sticking with what we do best, bullshittery.  We discuss our streaming review of the, how did this not end up on SyFy, Hurricane Heist.  And we also discuss nerd news discussing the cancellation of DareDevil, announcement of a live action Cowboy Bebop and Red Dead Online launch.  We wrap it all up in a nice little bow by answering this week's podquestion of what was your favorite Queen song.





Watching Hurricane Heist we can't help but continuously ask ourselves "how did this not end up as a made for TV movie on SyFy.  This week's streaming review seems, at face value, to be a silly yet fun concept.  But what it actually turned to was a movie that had just too much plot for it's own good.  It focused on two brothers who watched their father die in a hurricane that are trying to stop 600 Million dollars from getting stolen.  Sounds fun right?  Nope, this movie drags it's feet at most every opportunity and the only thing that really gets off of the ground is all the debris.  We can't say how disappointed we were, which is just plain sad.  We both suggest you stay in your storm shelter and let it pass you by.




Next week we're starting to tackle some of those Summer movies that we missed by watching Rampage on HBOgo this week.
