The Geeks talk about movies possibly moving to on demand instead of theaters…permanently! Plus a fun Watson game to take our mind off current events by going back to the beginning of geek movies.
Now that Watson has ranked all 150 movies he saw in 2018, and I’ve done the same with the equally impressive 51 movies I saw last year, let’s mix it up. I wanted to see if we could predict what the other person’s top 10 movies of 2019 will be. Here is my take on Watson’s 2019 top 10.
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.
The DCEU Flash movie has been delayed…again. While we wonder what the heck is going on with DC we revisit the results of a 2 year old movie delay game, then discuss what makes a Halloween movie and what spooky festivities in which Jenny has been partaking. Then we wrap it up with a scary movie trivia game!
Beauty fades, but wisdom never dies. The real horror is if we never learn this lesson.
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!
Ernie Cline’s seminal Geek classic comes to the big screen courtesy of Steven Spielberg. How would the film adaption stand up against the beloved novel?
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!
