ABC Podcast: Alex and Brandon Chat
On this week's episode, Alex and Brandon chat about being one with the Force.
Alex and Brandon, along with special guest Robyn, are here to fill your noggin with Star Wars talk. First up, they unbox the Rogue One box from Smuggler's Bounty, powered by Funko, and reveal all of the rebellious goodies inside. After that, Brandon gives us a new subject to start off the exciting second cycle of the ABC's of Geekdom, this week choosing to talk about a guy who hates sand. After that, they move on to the corrections segment, including Alex's college credits, the ABC's of Geekdom's inception, Futurama, Puzz Pack, Bob Hoskins, the Batman movies, more Japanese history, Kathleen Kennedy, Marvel vs. Capcom, Attack on Titan, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Groot, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the Vulture, Tom Holland, Unicron, King Kong, Dragonball Z, Loonatics Unleashed, JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Home Alone, Prep and Landing, and dingos.
After the break, the gang comes back to talk about a few trailers, including Monster Trucks, the next Pokémon movie, the Fate of the Furious, and Dunkirk. Then they talk about some news, including the main lead and three Klingons being cast on Star Trek Discovery, the title for the next Godzilla movie, a new comic about Ghost Rider vs. Santa, the Suicide Squad sequel, a Deadshot spinoff, a Harley Quinn spinoff, Justice League 2's release being delayed, The Batman premiering in 2019, Ben Affleck's thoughts on The Batman's release date, Alan Thicke's death, Patrick Wilson cast as Ocean Master in Aquaman, the setting for the upcoming sitcom Powerless, a sequel to the documentary An Inconvenient Truth, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming debuting summer 2019, and Andy Serkis' thoughts on a motion capture category for film awards. With all of that out of the way, they move on to the feature topic of the week, which is, of course, a review of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (spoilers from 1:27:48-1:58:52). Was the movie as awesome as Boba Fett with a lightsaber, or was it a giant pile of bantha fodder? Listen and find out! After reading a couple of listener emails, they wrap up the show with an all new Fan Fic Fights, this time a three sided battle between four master wish granters.
