Hello everyone and welcome to our week in geek! We hit the theaters to watch the Rock’s most recent movie foray (that’s at least 3 so far this year!) by catching Skyscrapper. Was this the new DieHard that we wanted or was it more of A Good Day to Die Hard? Listen in to find out as we bring you both our spoiler filled and spoiler free reviews. We also discuss what very little news we have with the new Joker Origins movie and the new Neill Blomkamp movie. We also review Professor Marston for this week’s streaming review and answer our Podquestion of what bug power would you want?
This week’s streaming review was the origin story of Wonder Woman, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women. This movie was pretty much the story we had expected, though both of us had heard rumors of the origins of Wonder Woman neither of us had looked into the history much. While this movie no doubt takes some artistic licence with it merely being “based on a true story” we both are very curious to see what the differences between reality and fiction are. The acting is solid and the story is a pretty engaging time capsule of a time long past. The origins and purpose of Wonder Woman are far different than what some may have expected. But the exploration into Polyamory and BDSM really paints a much better picture than you will ever get from the likes of 50 Shades. We both liked this movie and recommend giving it a watch when you have the time.
The next movie up for streaming review we’re hitting up Hulu again for some dramatic story telling with Detroit. We both very much wanted to see this movie back when it came out in theaters and are very curious to watch this movie and expect some hard hitting drama.
You can suggest a streaming movie that you want us to watch and review on future episodes that are on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime or HBOgo.
