Game Over, Man. Game Over.

I’m at work and on my lunch break. Having just read about the massive attack on the U.S. Internet — coupled with the fact that all staff bathrooms are out of order at our school — I thought I’d share 13 0f my favorite “End of the World” movies. I’m sure I’ll forget some that I love, and these aren’t necessarily in order, but here it goes:

1. The Road (2009)

2. Children of Men (2006)

3. Planet of the Apes (1968)

First Thoughts — Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

NOTE: This post got waaay too long, so I’ll divide it up and release over the next few days. There was a lot on my mind, apparently!

We will obviously be sharing our thoughts on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in our next episode (recording tomorrow, released on Wednesday, March 30), but I have some initial thoughts on the movie that I just need to get out of my head since it’s already been three days out from seeing it and I need to process these “out loud,” so to speak. Just to be clear: everything that follows in this post will be my (John’s) opinions alone. I won’t pretend to speak for the other guys!

So, please, check out our upcoming episode #60 on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for the review from the full group of co-hosts.

SPOILERS FOLLOW. PLEASE DO NOT CONTINUE READING IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN BATMAN v SUPERMAN YET!!

Episode #57: “Compliance.” | Flight of the Navigator (1986)

We apologize that it’s been 8 years since our last episode. We know we have a lot to catch up on, what with it now being 2024 and we can’t explain where we’ve been for all this time. The best we can do is talk about movies… and what better movie from the Time Dilation genre than Flight of the Navigator? Sit down, Navigator. Enjoy!
