Solo: A Star Wars Story

One of the most popular characters in the Star Wars universe has gone Solo.  Harrison Ford earned fame and fortune playing an irascible space bandit in four sci-fi blockbusters. Now rising star Alden Ehrenreich inherits the iconic role in a prequel that dramatizes Han Solo’s first mission in the Millennium Falcon. He joins Chewie, Lando, and a band of criminals for a hyperfuel heist on planet Kessel, but will longtime fans be the ones feeling ripped off?  Assume Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart won’t betray you and you won’t be disappointed in their latest podcast!

Deadpool 2

This show description is guest written by Deadpool.
 

You know who’s big? I am! Not in that way, get your mind out of the gutter! (Okay, I’m big in that way too.) But my first movie was more popular than Jesus! So take that John Lennon!

But even with my healing factor I’m not immune to…performance anxiety. The dreaded sophomore slump can happen to anyone. I’ve got a second movie out and I pulled out the big guns. (Literally. Cable has a ginormous rifle. How does he hold that with those tiny hands?) But even with Cable and X-Force I’m worried– will Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart think it’s as good as the first one?  I’m scared…why don’t you listen now and let me know?

Ryan Reynolds made a string of flops before finally finding big screen success as wisecracking mutant mercenary Wade Wilson. So why does the Canadian heartthrob want to commit career suicide and kill off this seemingly invincible superhero in Deadpool 2? Can time-travelling cyborg Cable (Josh Brolin), bullied mutant teenager Firefist (Julian Dennison), or any of the extended X-Men family save this unlucky actor from his self-destructive tendencies? Join Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie as they place their bets on the franchise’s odds for survival.
