Screen Junkies made a supercut.
I love going to the movies but life keeps me so busy that the vast majority of movies I see are with my kids, leaving me with the difficult task of carving out late nights or some other time to watch more grown-up titles and Red Sparrow. Still, thanks to streaming services, long plane rides, and AMC A-List, I managed to see a whopping 51 movies in 2018! It’s nothing compared to Watson, but at nearly one a week, I’m happy about that.
Tom ranks the movies he saw in 2018.
Solo is out but only 2/3 of the Geeks have seen it–find out why Ryan had to leave the movie just a few minutes in and hear Jenny and Watson’s spoiler-free take on the film. Then the geeks talk about the future of a few of our most beloved franchises: Star Wars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the DC Expanded Universe, Harry Potter, and Game of Thrones. What lies in store for these properties?
The Geeks have made it through the Infinity War! What did they think of the epic adventure? Where is the Marvel Cinematic Universe heading? Who will survive Watson’s latest trivia game? And what did our crew think of Deadpool 2? So much to gab about!
In our “What Are We Geeking On” segment, Ryan shares his experiences with Puffs, the Harry Potter Broadway parody that retells the Potter saga from the perspective of the Hufflepuffs while Jenny recounts her experiences with DC royalty and Star Wars creators at SXSW. Watson tells the saddest story you’ll hear this week. And you will laugh because it’s Watson.
Then the geeks get into the latest Infinity War trailer while we try to manage our excitement. Is it April 26 yet???
Gabbing Geek is happy to announce our new Geek Movie Club, that is until Watson makes his pick and Ryan realizes he didn’t think it all the way through. Jenny has a disappointing run in with a comic book reader and then we introduce a new segment: Why Watson Sucks. With so many possible reasons, what will we discuss today? Plus Box Office Sabotage and so much more!
Black Panther is out and we’ve got a passionate, spoiler-filled conversation about the movie. What did the geeks think of T’Challa, Killmonger, Wakanda, and everyone else? Is Killmonger the best Marvel villain ever? Take a listen and let us know your thoughts!
Star Wars news, trailers, TV shows and so much more. Plus some amazing developments in the world of streaming content and a fun Star Wars Expanded Universe Trivia Game!
In the wake of #OscarsSoWhite and #MeToo, how did the 2018 Oscar nominations hold up in terms of diversity? And what steps can the comic book industry take to be more diverse? And why are we talking about such heavy stuff for a geek podcast?
