Halloween 2018 review
With a franchise that all spawned from one film that premiered in 1978, this new sequel ignores everything but the original. Much like what Neil Blomkamp wanted to do with Aliens, David Gordon Green and Jamie Lee Curtis do with Halloween. 40 years later Michael Myers breaks out of the hospital and goes after Laurie Strode once more. But this time, Laurie is ready.
The Girl and Tristan aren't really into horror films but the original Halloween holds a special place in their hearts. Listen as they talk about the franchise and how much fun this current iteration was to watch.
Our Review of First Man with Ryan Gosling
We got to see First Man opening weekend and it was quite the immersive experience (especially when you're forced to sit in the front row). It was interesting to see the director and lead actor team up again since La La Land but did it always hit its mark?
On top of our review, we discuss the new media we've been exploring this week including DC's streaming exclusive "Titans", the new season of "Jack Whitehall: Travels with my Father", "Death of Superman", and the home release of Marvel's "Ant-Man and the Wasp".
Star Trek, Aquaman, Forever, A Star Is Born
We talk and review a whole bunch this week. Star Trek: Discovery released a new trailer for Season 2 at New York Comic-Con and it introduces the new Spock. Aquaman had a 5 minute extended look released around the same time. "Forever" on Amazon Prime was a pleasant surprise starring Maya Rudolph. We round out the show with Lady Gaga's and Bradley Cooper's smash hit "A Star is Born" remake.
Listen to hear us take in all the new and exciting media.
We discuss the Joaquin Phoenix "Joker" news as well as give a spoiler-free review of Netflix's "Maniac"
These past few weeks have been pretty exciting in regards to geek news and at the top of that last for us has been the images and video released in regards to the new "Joker" film. We know that Joaquin Phoenix will be our new Joker and that he starts out as "Arthur". The film will be directed by Todd Phillips, the director of the Hangover Trilogy, but don't let that turn you off, lets give him the benefit of the doubt.
We end the show with our review of Netflix's "Maniac" which had every episode directed by Cary Fukunaga. This show stared Emma Stone and Jonah Hill and gave a very interesting (yet respectful) look into mental illness and the lengths people will go to find relief.
We celebrate the 25th anniversary of The X-Files, discuss The Girl watching Star Trek, and talk #NerdGoals
The day of this episode release is the 25th anniversary of The X-Files. It's absolutely insane that much time has passed and technically the show is still going on; for better or worse. We reminisce about our first memories of the show and how it was the first show we watched together from pilot to finale.
Long time listeners will remember that The Girl is not the biggest Star Trek fan but lately it has been her idea to watch some Next Gen. Truly beautiful to behold. We round out the show with our "Nerd Goals". Nerdy things in life we haven't achieved yet or accomplished. Like doing the LOTR walking tour or watching all of AFI's top 100 movies.
What are some of your nerd goals?
