Hello everyone, welcome to our week in Geek!
As per usual we hit a lull following SDCC with just a few trailers with Zombie Land 2, Won’t You Be My Neighbor, and the Kingsman. But we do talk about what feels like the impending demise of Gamestop, our streaming review of The Hate U Give and wrap it all up with by answering our podquestion of “which superhero would you like to see made into a video game?”
This week’s streaming review was The Hate U Give on HBOgo. We knew going into this that it was going to be a heavy movie, and we were absolutely right. This movie tackles some extremely relevant and recent topics that have been in the social zeitgeist and it does it very well. The movie is long and, at times, exhausting but it is worth the price of admission thanks to the stellar acting of the cast. Especially Amandla Stenberg’s performance is something to witness. Seeing her character grow and be able to show the full range of emotions that come with the often painful change. We both highly recommend giving this movie your time and attention.
Our next week’s streaming review is on Amazon Prime, we’re going to watch Serenity.
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.
