Discussion: Favorite Mars related movie.

Christopher picks “Total Recall“ as his favorite. He thinks it’s real and not a dream. Andrew and Patrick both have seen “The Martian” Christopher has not seen it yet. He will see it today. Both Andrew and Patrick think “Red Planet” is a solidly entertaining film set on Mars

Seen:

Andrew and Christopher watch “Blindspot” The main conceit of the series is dumb but the two main actors are very engaging.
Andrew reports on “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” hopes they incorporate more of the Marvel comics Inhumans. Black Bolt is a great character.
Christopher watches “The Blacklist” and “Fear the Walking Dead“. He refused to disclose spoilers on the one thing Andrew cares about on that show. “Fear The Walking Dead” is awesome and fills in the time gap nicely “The Walking Dead” created with Rick’s coma.
Patrick is through season 8 of “Doctor Who”. He still has issues with Capaldi’s Doctor and Jenna Coleman’s Companion.

All are excited for Season two of The Leftovers. IT BEGINS OCT 4Th!

Read:

“The Aeronauts Windlass“. Jim Butcher’s new steampunk series. It has talking cats. Chris is enthralled. Patrick is scratching the surface and it’s awesome fun.
Christopher has dived in “Marvel’s Secret Wars” by Jonathon Hickman. It has created an interesting new world to explore.  Andrew is still deep in “The Expanse” books.  “Abbadon’s Gate” started slow but has since punched the accelerator in the face and show no signs of letting up.

Played:

Chris and Andrew give “Destiny The Taken King” rave reviews. More content, more fun than Vanilla “Destiny”. Chris also has gotten into “Forza 6” The game creates a intense and realistic racing simulation.
Patrick mobile gaming continues with “Dungeon Quest“. He is Level 40 and 50th stage of 200 stages.  He may break his own rule and spend some money on mobile gaming unlock new content.
Trivia:
In “Episode Two: Attack of the Clones“. The Battle of Geonosis is the climax of the film. Who is the Leader of the Geonosian people who ordered the execution of The Jedi and Senator Amidala?

It’s funny and the Boys have no idea.

Discussion:

The new trailer for “The Martian“. We are very excited for this movie. Our discussion covers Ridley Scott, his long, uneven, but legendary career, the magnificent cast for this film and stellar novel the movie is based upon.

We discuss an online quiz that tests your geek movie cred. We really can’t dispute the films included.http://www.listchallenges.com/100-basic-training-movies-at-the-nerd-academy

Take if for yourself and let us know your score!

Seen:

Unseen: “Fantastic Four” We might see it to have a more informed opinion

Christopher continues with “Dark Matter”. The first season is coming to a close and it’s been solid entertainment. He took his youngest daughter, Keira, to seen “Ant Man“, she loved it. Movie is surprisingly effective in emotionally connecting the viewer to the ants.

Andrew saw “Hitman: Agent 47“ and not it’s as bad as he thought it would be. Most of it doesn’t make a lot of sense though.

Patrick watched “Sinister Part 1“. Scary, like poop scared out of you scary.

Patrick watched “What We Do In the Shadows”. New Zealand brand of humor.

Read:

Andrew finishes “Leviathan Wakes” Spoilers abound! Come back in Five minutes!

Patrick purchased “Caliban’s War” on Audible, the Second book of The Expanse series, he hadn’t listened to any of it yet, but was enjoying “Ready Player One” again.

Christopher is deep in “The Player of Games”. As a gamer himself, he wishes the book was a little more detailed on how the games the main character is a master of actually work.

Played:

Andrew and Christopher play “Destiny“ and they purchase the most coveted weapon in the game, the Gjallarhorn, so fun but insanely over powered. The weapon doesn’t take a lot of skill to be good with it.

Christopher works to unlock flying in the land of Draenor in “World of Warcraft”. And of course, “Rocket League”!

Patrick plays “Castle Panic“. He feels like he has mastered the mechanics of the game after just a couple sessions, fun, but not top tier as far as table top games go.
