Welcome back to another episode of SzG. No theatrical review this week, we’re kind of saving ourselves for BvS next month… crap, can you believe that’s next month? Soon the rest of the comic/geek movie flood will follow suit. But until then we’re stuck with, well with really not much in terms of interesting news. So you’re in store for one of our famous… shoot the shit podcasts. Bat talks his experiences with Amazing Arizona Comic Con, I recount what I can remember from AZ Strong Beer Fest, we talk about what Deadpool’s success means for future comic book movies, also we dive into the future and past of video games along with our streaming review of Project Almanac and Episode 2 spoiler review of Making a Murderer.
This week’s fan streaming suggestion from TK was Project Almanac. Over all Bat and I came out a little at ends with this movie. I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would, not perfect by any means but it had some interesting concepts and garnered a 3/5 from me. It’s not really worth a repeat viewing but it was fun for a one off. Bat on the other hand didn’t enjoy it as much and gave it a 2/5. He put it very succinctly by saying it was Butterfly Effect but not done as well.” He’s spot on, this movie does a lot of the same things but not as well and is hampered by the “found footage” feel. I think we both can agree that if you found the time travel aspect neat, then watch a better version of it and go see Butterfly Effect.
Next week’s streaming review of Maggie was chosen by Bat. We both loved the idea of this movie when we saw the initial trailer and concept but never made it out to the theater to see it. Schwarzenegger protecting his daughter who is slowly turning into a zombie… sign me up. This is one I’m all in for. If you want to watch along you can find this on EpixHD and we believe HuluPlus.
You can suggest streaming movies that you want us to watch and review on future episodes that are on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime or HBOgo.
