Episode 37: Night at the Pewseum

SHOW NOTES

WARP ZONE

Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer BETA

Refreshing for the seasoned Halo player, as it does not play like a typical game from the franchise. Starter weapons are solid. Maps are fluid. Encourages teamwork while punishing lone wolf-style gameplay.

THE STACK

Rocket Salvage #1, Archaia Comics

Primo Rocket used to be the fastest speeder-racer in the galaxy, but after a crash that sealed the fate of his space-station-city home, Rio Rojo, Primo has resigned himself to life as a lowly spaceship salvage yard owner. However, his two "kids"--harvest clone Beta, and Beta's genius girl-clone Zeta--can't seem to keep out of trouble. When the dysfunctional family suddenly becomes the target of an intergalactic manhunt, the family has to come together to save their home.

THE GOOD: The artwork of Bachan (Imagine Agents) is very eye-catching, especially paired with the color work by Jeremy Lawson (Regular Show, Teen Titans GO!). The comic is on quality paper and cover as you would expect from Archaia. The storyline is an amalgam of many pop culture favorites of ours.

THE BAD: The comic attempts to cram a lot in a first issue, which is typical for a mini-series. Some of the panels are very busy art-wise, with the scenes begging to breath.

FINAL RATING: 4 out of 5 Pews

KEEPIN' IT REEL

  • The Interview pulled from theater following hacker threats, now seeing a limited release.
  • AMC and MoviePass team up to test out unlimited movie service in Boston and Denver starting January. Includes premium formats (3D, IMAX) and auditoriums (Cinema Suites).

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, 20th Century Fox

Larry spans the globe, uniting favorite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the magic before it is gone forever.

THE GOOD: Lots of star power here (Stiller, Williams, Wilson, Gervais, and -GASOP- Jackman!?) for a family film. Lots of funny bits and a great side story with bros Jedediah and Octavius. New creative focus on particular historical relics or pieces.

THE BAD: Your standard popcorn flick, but if the words "Fox Family" make you cringe, you should steer clear. This is most definitely one for the kids, so don't go looking to have your mind blown. The script is very loose.

FINAL RATING: 3 out of 5 Pews
