Everest is not a movie you want to see in IMAX if you have a problem with heights – the 3D is terrifyingly good, even when the big storm hits. Otherwise, it’s a movie that is easy to appreciate – even if ‘enjoy’ might not be the exact word to describe the experience you’ll have watching it.
Lots of rumors and trailers this week to discuss! As such, GeekScholars Movie News kicks off a ‘Never Tell Me the Odds!’ segment where they discuss (coincidentally) the probability of a younger Han Solo showing up in the Boba Fett film, Red Hulk making an appearance in Captain America: Civil War, and whether or not Hellboy III, and MEG will ever get made.
From there, the hosts review the first trailers for several films debuting this fall including Everest, The Walk, Bridge of Spies, and Z for Zachariah.
Well, it’s October, and so in this slightly expanded GeekScholars Movie News podcast, the crew looks at the upcoming month’s highlights by telling you which movies they are most (and least) excited for, as well as their predictions on how each film will score on the Rotten Tomatoes freshness scale!

Before that, however, this week’s show begins with a bunch of interesting news to discuss, including a potential Fargo television show, Tom Hardy in a biopic about George Mallory attempting to climb Mount Everest, Gina Carano starring in an all-females Expendables-type movie, updates on Spy Hunter, The Mummy reboot, and Dawn of the Planet Apes, and finally the crew’s thoughts on Seth McFarlane being named the host of the 85th Annual Academy Awards.
The show then concludes with GeekScholars Fox, Jill, and Chris offering their analyses and grades on their F- to A+ scale for Looper, the highly anticipated time-travel action movie starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis.
