[SOMETHING IN REVIEW] Army of the Dead

Tagged , , ,

It’s time to head down to Vegas, get 10 of your best men, knock off three of Terry Benedict’s cas— no wait, that’s not right.

We’re going on a Vegas Vacation, and I have a briefcase full of reds, blues, moscat– no, still not right.

Oh, wait – it’s a zombie apocalypse and sin city is about to be nuked, so let’s get the most divisive movie maker in Hollywood right now and have him tell the story of people getting in and out before the big boom booms.

We’re not going on this journey of the dead alone – we’re bringing Dan from Netflix & Swill (Twitter:@netflixnswill) along with us.  So sattle up, roll some 7’s, and let luck be a BRAAAAAAINNZZZ tonight.

Ok, here we go!

Just a lil story about a boy on his bike and the cute alien he keeps in the front basket…

…if by cute alien we meant horrifying kaiju – and by basket, we meant ‘from destroying the entire city’

[Something In Review] Jupiter’s Legacy

Tagged , ,

We are in the next era of comic book entertainment. The Marvel mines have been pickaxed so deep that every other funnybook writer is now having their work taken and adapted to the binge-box. 

This month, we’re talking about Netflix’s take on Mark Millar’s Jupiter’s Legacy – a world of heroes dealing with their interpersonal relationships over the span of generations, almost like some sort of… legacy..

What did the Somethings think? Well all you need to do is click on that link at the top of the page that says SURVEY and then listen to the episode to find out!  The survey is there to help us find out who’s listening, what they’re listening to, and really.. why us?  Help us out and give that link a click.

Great, and now that you’ve done that, why don’t you go find your Superdad and go on an adventure with us! 

Ok, here we go!

[Something In Review] The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel

Tagged ,

We are back, and this episode was recorded live before an internet audience over on Twitch.

Do you dig murder?  I mean… not like that… but do you find yourself mindlessly addicted to documentaries about the horrible things that horrible people do to people?

Yeah, look, we all do. That said, there is a new one on Netflix, but the results aren’t precisely what you think they are. The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel takes a police procedural documentary and turns it on its ear with the focus moving from the important facts of the case and sliding on over to an entirely different topic.  

Is it good? Is it worth it? We have opinions…. oh boy, do we. And once you are done, be certain to check out Hatton’s article on Vocal.Media

Okaaaay here we go!

[Something In Review] Evil & Cobra Kai

Tagged , ,

Why review two things when there are two of us, am I right? You see, there is a lot of television going on right now. If we were allowed to go places with water coolers, I don’t know how any work would get done with all the chatter about what we saw last night…

With that in mind, the Somethings were live on Twitch and reviewed not just one show, but two. One is about a team fighting evil at every turn, and the other is Evil! So hang with Hatton and Rob as we breakdown two shows that have gotten us through at least a little of our lockdown.

And don’t forget to jump on the Core Worlds Kickstarter, going on right now!
