Huge news this week within the world of Star Wars!! At Star Wars Celebration 2023, not only was a trailer revealed for a new Ahsoka series but three new movies were announced, all set in different eras of the Star Wars timeline. From directors Dave Filoni, James Mangold, and Charmeen Obaid-Chinoy, these movies will all have opening crawls and will be released in 2025, 2027 and 2029. Jack and Artie get into their thoughts on each of the announced films in addition to the Ahsoka trailer and their opinions on the live action portrayals of all the Rebels characters. Moving over to the rock music world, pioneering Thrash Metal band Metallica has released their 11th studio album, 72 Seasons. Going closer to their more traditional, '80s thrash roots, this album features 12 new songs that all have something new to offer to Metallica's discography. Jack and Artie are here to talk about all the ups and downs to the new album and how it compares to Metallica's earlier works. Is it a good metal album by modern standards? Do James Hetfield and Kirk Hammet still have it in them to make excellent songs, or is it just another St. Anger or Reload? Listen to hear what we think!
Do you like it when Jack and Artie do movie reviews? Are you curious or excited about recent non-superhero blockbusters exploding box offices around the world? Do you like listening to podcasts? If so, this is the episode for you! This week's show features two awesome movie reviews and a great general discussion about the state of nerd cinema in 2023. First off, we open by reviewing the brand new animated spectacle from Nintendo and Illumination Studios, The Super Mario Bros.: Movie starring Chris Pratt, Jack Black, Anya Taylor-Joy and Seth Rogen. The hilarious action-packed masterpiece is absolutely revolutionary for video game-to-movie adaptations and we chat about our opinions on the performances, the cool Easter Eggs and what doors this might've opened for gamers in movie theaters. Next, we discuss the new action-adventure/fantasy/heist film Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, starring Chris Pine, Hugh Grant, Michelle Rodriguez and Justice Smith. Based on the fifth edition of the iconic tabletop roleplaying game, the D&D film serves as a nice palette cleanser from the recent stress of interconnected universe franchises. It's a great genre-bender for hardcore fans and casual moviegoers alike, so Jack and Artie are here to elaborate on their deeper opinions. On another note, with the two best movies of the year so far being based on a roleplaying game and a video game franchise, both of which being better received than this year's Marvel, Star Wars and DC content, does this mean superhero movies/cinematic universes are on their way out? Is the video game movie takeover really gonna happen? Listen to find out!!
