Studios try to revitalize once-beloved franchises with Baywatch and Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Then we take a swear-filled rant about the “controversy” over the women-only screenings for Wonder Woman at the Alamo Drafthouse. And next week a (returning) special guest will join us to talk Wonder Woman! Stay awhile and listen!
Alien: Covenant for the adults and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul for the kids. Well, certain kids, because there are lots of bodily function jokes in this movie. Kiddie version of The Griswolds. Alien: Covenant is more of a Prometheus sequel than an Alien prequel, but it tries to split the difference with your classic facehuggers and chestbursters, etc. Split. Logan: Noir. Get Out.
We have Snatched and King Arthur this week, and also a look back on Prometheus and how it ties in to Alien: Covenant. We could seriously discuss it for hours, but we’ll just over you the basics– including spoilers for a 5-year old movie, for which we don’t apologize.
It’s a Giant-Sized Episode #100 featuring Kaitlyn Booth from Bleeding Cool and a full hour of spoiler-free discussion of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Family. Character moments. Character pairings. Platonic relationships. Music breakdown.
