All that, the Weekly Watched, and all the usual tangents.
Loren: When I first got wind of this I saw the voice cast and thought, “That is going to be the most annoying movie ever”.
RDT: Ugh, apparently this is pretty good. Which is weird because it doesn’t look pretty good (sorry, I just don’t enjoy Kevin Hart). I doubt I’ll pay to see it in theaters, but might give it a whirl a few months down the road when it’s streaming.
Rick: This strikes me as something that would have worked better as an animated series rather than a feature. Not that I would watch it in either format, but there’s more room for creativity on TV.
Jen: With the word underpants in the title, I can’t imagine this won’t cause giggles for the little ones, but I’ll pass till my daughter begs me for it.
This week, we cover all the news coming out of San Diego Comic-Con, plus Loren has a recap of his trip to Star Wars Celebration in London. And, of course, all the other news that’s fit to post. Potential Guardians Vol. 2 spoilers at 1:30:30.
Quick caveat to this week’s episode. Loren and I are both recovering from a cold. So our apologies for any congestedness or coughs that made their way through. Anyway onto the show!
