Dread it. Run from it. 150 episodes came all the same. What better way to celebrate this milestone than a movie 11 years in the making technically, but really something we've kind of been waiting for all of our lives! In order to celebrate with us, and to gush IN FULL SPOILER MODE we have a murderer's row of past heroes: Dana Keels, Eva Ceja, and Travis Moody! WARNING: we get into the movie RIGHT OFF THE BAT - there is no safety here for those of you who haven't seen it! We get into what we liked, what we LOVED, and what we enjoyed. We tried to nitpick but it never quite added up to how much we just wanted to heap praise on this movie. 

 

Follow our lovely guests @evaceja, @hatandwand, and @travmoody!

The Geekdom Gamescast is a monthly video game bonus episode in collaboration with God Hates Geeks hosted by Myke and GHG's own Travis Moody. 

While Myke was stuck in Washington DC helping out the Strategic Homeland Division take on the Black Tusk, Travis went out to Boston in real life for a bunch of things, but especially PAX East! He compares it to E3, talks about seeing a band play Devil May Cry music, and of course they get into it about all the video game news of April and what they've been playing! They get into Division 2, Devil May Cry, and then close it all off with Mortal Kombat 11!

When we first talked to Reime Schemes on our 85th episode, we instantly were charmed by the unique journey that led him to being a hip hop artist on the verge of releasing his first record. One drop and four music videos later, we caught up with him in what seems like a pivotal moment in his career. We talk to him about how he's been touring the world, embracing his mixed race background, and how he's finding a newer audience through the internet. Myke also pitches him some business ideas and he takes us through the making of his new music and the music for his new single "Thief Ah Whine".

 

Listen to his new song on Reime Schemes' Soundcloud, and check out his video on YouTube! Follow him on Instagram @ReimeSchemes for news about any upcoming shows!

The DC Boys are back in town just in tome to bring their magic to our drunken double feature! James and DJ from MetaSquid Studios shows Jamesflix and Gamesters Pair of Dice hit the podcast hot, like a bolt of lightning, as we talk about the two non-Marvel comic book movies that are coming out this season. For those of you not keeping score that means we're going to quickly give our overall, non-spoiler thoughts on the new Hellboy THEN we get into the boy-wizard extraordinnaire himself: Shazam! Not only is it a full spoiler review of Shazam, it's a drunken review as well SO OF COURSE we also talk about a bunch of other stuff other than the movies. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Fantastic Four, ninja movies, some inappropriate coming of age "firsts", and tons more.

Good news, bad news members of the Geekdom. Bad news is that Myke wasn't able to be part of this episode because he was too sick to attend this year's Wondercon. Good news is Derek was joined by two of our favorite friends of the show / podcast extraordinaires in their own right: Tyler McPhail of the Grand Geek Gathering and Albert Patrick from Who What Wheres Why! Tyler talks about his panels and we all talked about all the cosplayers this year, especially compared to SDCC and LA Comic Con. Albert and Derek then talk about the panels they went to including Dark Phoenix, Deadly Class, and Into the Badlands.

We have what might be our first triple feature movie discussion podcast this week as Captain Marvel has already flown into our lives, Us has made us afraid of Santa Cruz, and we're about to hear DC say the magic word -- Shazam! We have two of our own Captain Marvels joining us, producer, actors, and pop culture personality extraordinaires Lance Paul and Jasan Avalos on panel to discuss three of the biggest movies that are coming out this season. 

First Lance gives us his early, rough impressions of Shazam - the hero formerly known in the comics as Captain Marvel. Then we talk about the current, MCU newcomer and title owner, Captain Marvel and then we finish with a light spoiler free discussion of Us!

Follow Lance @thetravelingnerd and follow Jason @JasonAvalos and find out about all their cool film, and otherwise, projects coming out!

Damian Holbrook, one of our favorite con panel moderators, TV Guide Network hosts, TV Insider writers, and TCA Board members, returns to the podcast just in time to help you set your DVRs for the upcoming year.

He dishes about the best panels, the new shows he's excited for, "journalists" that ask terrible questions, George Clooney overshadowing an entire A-List TV cast, and more!

When we originally pitched this episode to Ryan we had thought it would be about trashing this trainwreck of on an Oscar ceremony - suffice to say we were kind of wrong. We still had to bring our favorite movie critic and journalist, Ryan Scott, on to talk about the 2019 Oscars! We get into how the ceremony actually went pretty well, how this year felt different, the surprises of the night, what we thought was snubbed for nominations in general, and how why there might have been a ratings jump! 

Follow Ryan at @ryanscottwrites on Twitter and check out his great reviews and articles!

The Geekdom Gamescast is a monthly video game bonus episode in collaboration with God Hates Geeks hosted by Myke and GHG's own Travis Moody. 

We had so much to say about our main subject of this episode that we ended up breaking it apart to stand on its own - and it is worth it for our guest, Adam Bower's expertise in looter shooters alone. That's right, we have GHG's resident Destiny expert on to talk about the newest, and biggest, looter shooter to come out this quarter - Bioware's ANTHEM. Before we take off in our Javelin's we do talk about Apex Legends and the Division 2 beta a little as well.

If you've heard our previous episode with our returning guest, Albert Patrick, then you know that we weren't going to spend only one hour to cover two months worth of movies that are coming out because he'll probably watch more movies than any of us combined this year! That doesn't mean that we won't have TONS to say about the movies we're excited for, though. It's a brisk, yet meaty block of movie previews for the months of March and April of 2019! Joining Albert is one of the new hosts of his Stuff & Junk Show - Jiaming Liou! Through the course of the episode you'll hear how Jiaming and Albert are basically the bizarro-world Myke and Derek and how that's a recipe for GREAT TIMES.

Even before we could get our first movie preview episode of the season out, a big movie dropped! Listeners will know how excited Derek was for this movie, so you know that if we did an episode on Bohemian Rhapsody then of course we were going to do a review of ALITA! Did it live up to his expectations? What happens when Robert Rodriguez gets a TITANIC budget? How anime did Myke feel it was? WE Motor Ball our way into it all! NOTE: This is HALF a spoiler review episode, the back half is spoilers and we will give you substantial warning!

Feb 7, 2019

Now that we're finally going to start to get the goods of 2019 we take one last look back at our year in movies and TV.

It was kind of a weird year for the Golden Globes.

Our buddy Greg Mucino joins us to break down what feels like a weird award season. Also Myke updates everyone on his injury and surgery.
