The cinemas are getting ready for the onslaught of films ready to make their awards season run, so before that happens, the GeekScholars Movie News podcast pauses to reflect on 2013, as each host names their Top 3 of the year thus far, and why they deserved inclusion.
Also on this show, the GeekScholars dive into everything you’ll want to know about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a brand new story set inside the Harry Potter universe, with an original screenplay from J.K. Rowling! To gain even further insight into the matter, the crew interviews one of the largest Harry Potter fans in world, Michelle Tan, as named by Box Office magazine!
Imagine the ultimate movie boxing match: Rocky vs. The Raging Bull. Now think of them as thirty years past their prime. In a nutshell, that’s Warner Brothers’ Grudge Match – the Expendables of sports movies. Billy ‘The Kid’ McDonnen (Robert DeNiro) and Henry ‘Razor’ Sharp (Sylvester Stallone) fought twice back in the day, each winning once. The much anticipated deciding bout never happened – but now an encounter during a motion capture shoot for a videogame ignites both men’s passion for the ring. Alan Arkin and Kevin Hart also star.
Check out the trailer after the jump. Grudge Match is in theaters on Christmas Day.
