Hello all and welcome back to another episode of Sprecken ze Geek. Since I went to the theater solo, this week we bring you my spoiler free theatrical reviews of both Specter and Sicario. We also review Circle, our last streaming movie for the month of horror and we continue our review of season 2 of True Detective with episode 5. This weeks Nerd news includes: Overwatch coming to consoles, Target Games sale, Black Friday Soap Box, New Star Trek TV series and Warcraft movie trailer.
This month’s last streaming suggestion for our 2nd annual month of Horror was Circle. The trailer pretty much gives you exactly what to expect from the movie. 50-60 people are placed by aliens in a room and have to vote who dies next. This is very much a character movie with pretty much zero horror. But with that said it does some interesting things with the character interactions in this demented game show of a movie. The worst part, and what really kills it for both of us, is that the movie just ends without a rhyme or reason. There is nothing there to give any context of the possible bigger picture. That lack of closure brought both of our scores down from 4/5’s to 3/5’s. We have a hard time recommending this one even with the cool concept.
Next week we’re starting our march to Episode 7 by starting to review the Star Wars movies 1-6. First up is Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Now if you haven’t seen it… hey it could happen… or you want to refresh you memory check out the trailer below.
On a final note you all our listeners. I wanted to mark a special occasion as yesterday was a special day. 1 year ago I almost lost one of my best friends and one of the greatest co-hosts. Looking back on it I honestly can’t imagine what this past year would have been there without you in our lives. I’m grateful for every stupid fart joke and every thoughtful introspective discussion we have and look forward to many more in the years to come. This ones for you Bat, cheers! I drink to your good health. Life is for the living.
Okay let me wipe the tears out of my eyes and get to it, For the next 6 weeks our streaming reviews are going to be taken up by the Star Wars movies but we still want you to send us your reviews of this weeks choice or even suggestions for future episodes streaming review on Hulu, Netflix or HBOgo. We will happily bank these for after The Force Unleashed has come out.
