Hello everyone, welcome to our week in Geek! This week we bring you half of a theatrical review with Bats spoiler-free review of Us. Along with that we also bring you a smattering of GDC news including Stadia, Playstation’s State of Play, and some other goodies.
We also review our streaming fan’s suggestion of Triple Fronteir and answer last week’s pod-question of “Which Star Wars Hero you would want to see brought into Battlefront 2?”
This week we watched the fan’s suggestion of Triple Frontier. Our friend of the Show, TK, suggested this one due to its similarities to Ghost Recon Wildlands. The movie starts off really strong with plenty of action scenes and strong character development. It really gets you into the mode of a heist movie and watching the planning and execution is half of the fun. Unfortunately, like many of the Netflix originals, this move suffers from a lack of editing. While we liked how the first third of the movie started, once the heist portion of the movie was completed it started to drag its feet. With all the star power this movie has, the actors had little to nothing to do for the last two thirds of the movie. Bat gives this a thumbs up while I recommend you give this one a pass. This movie has a lot going for it but fails to live up to most of its potential.
Next week we’re going to watch Bat’s suggestion of Annihilation. This has been one that both of us have been wanting to see for some time and we’re really looking forward to it. Please feel free to watch along with us on Amazon Prime.
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.
