On this week’s episode of GeekScholars Movie News, the hosts reassemble to discuss the news that Tom Hardy will star in Venom, the quasi-Spider-Man spin-off, they muse about who will eventually direct The Flash (if it ever gets made), and evaluate the trailers for Battle of the Sexes, and The Emoji Movie.
After that, Fox gives his spoiler-free of Alien: Covenant!
It’s our 30th anniversary here at GeekScholars Movie News! Well, not 30 years, but 30 awesome episodes, and we have a fantastic show for you to celebrate. Really, it’s awesome.
We kick things off with a discussion of the The Bechdel Test– What is it, how is it relevant, and why is it important. In a nutshell, The Bechdel Test is a quick, if not quirky way, to identify gender bias in movie roles, in terms of quantity and quality. It’s a great discussion you’ll want to listen in (and send us your thoughts on as well!)
After that, we weigh in on a hilarious premise- the true story of Nicholas Cage’s favorite rare Superman comic-book being stolen from him. The team behind Reno 911 have written a script on this one event and turned it into an epic comedy we all hope makes it to the big screen.
Next, we address the rumors that a film focusing on Spider-Man villain, Venom, may not be all that far off, with Josh Trank of Chronicle fame eying the director’s chair.
Finally, GeekScholars Fox and Chris weigh in on John Carter and themselves befuddled by the lack of love for it from their fellow critics.
This is a fantastic episode, not to be missed! Listen here!
