Welcome my back my friends, to another episode of SzG! Holy shit it’s episode 150… that snuck up on us fast. 3 and a half years later and we’re still chugging along and this weeks episode if filled with plenty of laughs though pretty minimal fanfare. It’s just us being us, and we’ve never been happier about it. I just want to thank all of you listeners, new and old, for feeding into this wonderfully geeky endeavor for so long. We look forward to more episodes and more shenanigans to come. Now with the sentimental stuff behind me, for now, let get onto this week where we have our theatrical review of The Huntsman: Winter’s War and more tidbits of nerd news: unofficial official document leak of PS Neo, William Dafoe cast in Justice League, New ID4 Trailer, Tony Stark in Spiderman movie and Marvel’s Inhumans movie looses it’s release date.
We also have our streaming review of The Purge: Anarchy and our 8th and last (for now) episode review of Making a Murder. We will be switching over to Game of Thrones for now and will also be moving these series reviews (quickies) to be released on this same feed on another night TBD.
This weeks streaming suggestion was The Purge: Anarchy. We watched the previous movie and asked that we see more of the world and what happens in it and that’s pretty much what we got. Far from a horror movie and much more of a gorey action flick. This Purge movie, while not great, does provide a…fun?… look into this effed up world. We both really enjoyed a look into the wider universe and how the world as a whole reacts to the purge. But Bat brought up a good point of now we want to see a tighter and maybe even a smaller story for the third one now that we have a scope to work with. One way or another we will be ready to watch the 3rd one once it’s out on streaming, but for this movie we gave it a 3/5.
Next week’s movie review was chosen because of the stars and the premise. Moonwalkers stars Rupert Grint and Ron Perlman in a movie about people who were hired to fake the moon landing… yup. I’m sold. This movie can be found on Netflix.
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.

That is all for this week’s Blogcast. Next week we will be back to our same Hammer Time and Same Bat Channel.
