Monster Trucks – Patron Exclusive Review

Cars and monsters. It sounds like a perfectly easy formula for a kid’s movie. Kids love cars. Kids love monsters. And yet Monster Trucks became a monstrous loss for studio Paramount Pictures, who took a $115 million loss before the film even came out. Is it truly one of the worst films of all time, or is its hideous reputation undeserved? Arnie, Stuart, and Jerry take the film for a spin. Become a Patron for Now Playing and you can hear their review!

DC Comics Offers Dedicated Shop for Wonder Woman Fans

 

Wonder Woman beat every box office prediction and broke opening weekend records. Its second weekend is expected to continue the trend as it buries The Mummy tomorrow.

But after you’ve seen the film several times, and listened to Now Playing Podcast’s review, how can you celebrate your love for the hero?  Warner Bros and DC Collectibles have tons of options for you to display your Wonder Woman love.

At their new site, WonderWomanShop.com, they have iPhone cases, posters, T-Shirts, bomber jackets, and more.  (The Protector of Humanity Sublimated Tee is especially cool)

For more serious collectors there are statues from Kotobukiya, DC Collectibles, and even a collection of Funko POP! Figures.

And, of course, you can pre-order the Blu-Ray to be among the first to have it when it ships later this year.

Wonder Woman (2017)

Sometimes a movie becomes something more than a film–it becomes a movement. That seems to be the case with Wonder Woman. It has become celebrated as not only a great DC movie but also the first wonder-ful female-led superhero film, and a breakthrough for a female director. Beyond the politics, though, how much does this movie improve the Snyder-verse of DC Comics films? Join Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob to find out!
