Netflix Trims Down Marvel

Netflix is making moves, and Disney's ready to kick-down the door. Amidst random World Series takes (Go Sox!), Jake + Mitch share initial reactions to the cutting of IRON FIST and LUKE CAGE from the Netflix dossier of Marvel entertainment. Naturally, there are plenty of conspiracy theories to be had: Does this mean we're (finally) going to see Heroes for Hire? Is Disney flexing a little too early? Or was it simply because IRON FIST was a little...uh...lackluster? Only time will tell. For now, J+M focus on what seems to be another stellar season of DAREDEVIL. D'onofrio's Kingpin is back in full force, and that's reason enough to full-blown fanboy. Give a listen! SUBSCRIBE: iTunes | Spotify

Hellboy Movies

Time for a deep-dive on everyone's favorite half-demon superhero. Jake + Mitch share their love of HELLBOY and the unique discovery that he may be the most universally beloved big screen comic icon. After all, who doesn't love Ron Perlman as the big red guy in GDT's two installments? And yet, the buzz surrounding next year's reboot is inherently positive. What makes Hellboy so engaging? Is HBII: The Golden Army the best comic book sequel ever? What do we hope to see in the upcoming flick? And why isn't Anchorman 2: The Broadway Musical a thing? Reboots are risky, but this one seems to be hitting the right notes. Can it be April already? Give a listen! SUBSCRIBE: iTunes | Spotify | S

VENOM - Here's What We Thought

Is it sym-BY-ote, sym-BEE-ote, or sym-BEE-ut? The world may never know. But at least the movie had incredible visuals. After putting the kids to bed, and powering through their exhausted "adulting" status--Jake + Mitch saw VENOM opening night. Naturally, they had a lot of thoughts. Could Tom Hardy and his newest voice choice carry the movie? Why were they so dead-set to (seemingly) shoot a rough-draft script? Did anyone else laugh at Woody's wig? Ultimately, the movie brought the heat. Mistakes were made, but VENOM delivered in fun, entertainment, and killer action sequences. Plus, Mitch dives down the "movie economics" rabbit-hold, and Jake re-evaluates Hardy's film log. Give a listen
