Hello everyone, welcome back to another week in geek. This week we’re super excited to bring you our spoiler free and spoiler filled reviews of Spider Man: Into the Spiderverse. We also discuss our streaming review of The Ballad of Buster Scruggs along with some nerd news regarding the unannounced cancellation of the Punisher Netflix show and I talk about my experience with Doki Doki Literature Club. Lastly we wrap up this week’s show by answering this week’s podquestion of what has been the game you’ve had the most fun with this year.
This week we watched the new Cohen Brother’s flick The Ballad of Buster Scruggs on Netflix. Both of us have to say that we were genuinely surprised (pleasantly even) that this move was actually more of a vignette style movie than one continuous story. Buster Scruggs was only in the first of the 6 vignette even. The other 5 were more slice of life in the wild west. While our favorites varied between Bat and myself we both agreed that the first bunch of the stories were the strongest. With the last 2-3 starting to drag on. I absolutely loved the Prospector story and Bat really enjoyed the Pan Shot one. While Bat was really anxious going into this one he came around and gave it a thumbs up, as I did. While not all of the stories are strong, and they don’t connect in any noticeable way, we both still had a good time watching them.
Next week we’re watching the Kurt Russell lead The Christmas Chronicles on Netflix. Join us in watching what we hope might be a fun new addition to the Christmas movie repertoire.
