Hello everyone, welcome to our week in Geek! We’re taking it easy this week with Captain Marvel still chugging along in the theaters we’re biding our time till our next theatrical adventure. For now we have a little slower nerd news week with no EA at E3 (really who’s going to be left?) James Gunn back for Guardians 3, New Aladdin and Avengers End Game trailers. We wrap it all up with our Streaming review of Under The Skin and answering last week’s Podquestion of who is your favorite galactic comic character.
This week we watched the my suggestion of Under the Skin on Netflix. We both have heard of this movie and were curious to see ScarJo as an sexy Alien on the Prowl. But what we got was another allegorical mish mash and some artsy nonsensical scenes. Maybe we’re just not smart enough for the movie (possible) but it really just fly completely over our heads. I only got a slightly better understanding of what was going on after reading a couple of guides to the movie. Yup, this movie required me to have a guide to better understand it. Regardless of what implications it was trying to make (Hunter Turned Prey, Our fascination with appearances or trying to give perspective on the human condition) it all just fell flat and left us confused. Give this one a pass, you really aren’t missing much.
Next week we’re going to take a break from Netflix to …watch another Netflix movie. This time it’s a suggestion from our friend TK and he wants us to watch the Netflix original, Triple Frontier.
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.
