After a brief flurry of discussion on Westworld (00:36), Bond 25 (04:47), and Deadpool 2 (06:21), the guys dig in to Solo: A Star Wars Story (11:19). They… kinda liked it, for the most part. But had some issues. It’s fine. Lucasfilm’s spin-offs are still floundering with a lack of direction, but it’s fine. Sabacc was better in the books, and the script was middling. But it’s fine. Good characters at least. Looking at you, Rogue One. Next week: Tragedy Girls (2:03:40).
This week on the pod we’re discussing the 2016 Chloë Grace Moretz vehicle The 5th Wave (13:55). It’s terrible. Marco maybe liked it a little more than Benji, but this movie is trash. Also discussed, the new Solo trailer (05:21), and there’s a big tangent in her on Liev Schreiber.
The Bros return after a month-long hiatus to catch up on some new trailers (02:06), Star Wars news (14:13), and The Cloverfield Paradox (25:27). Then it’s time for our main event, the long-threatened discussion on the 2014 film Divergent (29:33). This society makes no sense and this movie is bad, but somehow very watchable. Axe up!
