Today, we are doing something unprecedented. We're going to defend the film, Battlefield Earth! Well, Steve is going to defend it. All in a new segment called, To the Death! - Where we will take critically panned (and audience panned) movies and one of us must try to defend them, for whatever merits they may possess. In some cases, we may actually like the film, which in this case, Steve does! I know...crazy right?
Then we have some Nerdy News, where we'll discuss the troubling allegations against nerd icon, Chris Hardwick, and talk about some upcoming sequel films you probably didn't know were on their way.
Then we'll have the return of the Preternatural Penetration segment. Sticking with the theme of aliens from our featured movie, Jarman tells the story of a possible UFO crash that happened in Iceland in the 1950s.
In an extended Radical Recommends segment, Steve discusses how much his daughter loves Moana, which led to him doing research into the real myths behind the character of Maui from that film (the Rock). Join us on a historical deep dive!
Finally, for Trailer Reviews, we cover the upcoming Bumbebee Transformers spinoff, and the "live action" remake of Dumbo that no one asked for. Bumbo!
