Episode 056 - Stranger Things & Big News from SDCC!

This week, we're actually tossing movies out the window for a change as we welcome regular contributor and friend of the show, Bryan Loy, and the three of us dig into the new Netflix 80s horror thriller, Stranger Things! We've got a full review of all eight episodes of the series and we want to invite you to join us for this fantastic new show. The review is quite spoiler-filled, so if you're looking to avoid it until you finish the series yourself (which you MUST do!), then the segment runs from 15:20 to 55:00.

This week we've also got four trailers coming your way as part of Epic Previews. San Diego Comic Con was this past week, and instead of waiting for things to leak, the studios are out ahead of the game and have released the Comic Con trailers online to coincide with the event. Thus, we're going to be talking Justice League, Wonder Woman, the new trailer for Doctor Strange, and wrapping things up with the colossal Kong: Skull Island. We'll also be touching on the rest of the news from the week, including the casting of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel

Another thing we want to announce is that we're bringing back last week's fan reviews segment because it was so popular, and it will return every week that we get clips as a regular segment we're calling FanViews! Every week, you can shoot us a quick 60-90 second review of whatever film we're reviewing for that week (or whatever you want!) and we'll include your thoughts as part of the segment. We want to thank everyone who responded positively to this segment and encourage anyone out there listening to take part in the future. Meanwhile, after weeks of harassment about the now-infamous "sausage" clip, the weekly Charles Bronson has been shelved. I'd tell you by what, but if I told you then you'd probably get no respect, no respect at all! Thanks for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!
