Episode 52 | Shameful Holes: Summer Movie Catch-up

In which Dan and Alia fill some (not so) shameful holes by quickly watching a few new release summer flicks.  We answer all of your need-to-know questions: does anyone have a more punchable face than Dane DeHaan? Can Charlize go toe to toe with Bond? Does the Dark Tower mark a bitter end to the Macaughnaissance? Find out in our discussion of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Atomic Blonde, and The Dark Tower!

Episode 49 | Spider-Man: Homecoming

In which Dan and Alia spoil every last inch of Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Where does this first MCU entry in the Spider-Man series land in the long and storied history of Spider-Man flicks? Does it out-dance emo Peter from Spider-Man 3? Out-Rhino Paul Giamatti? Do we talk way too long about Tony Stark's motivations?  The answers to these questions lie within, True Believers! (The answers are yes, yes, and yes).

Episode 42 | Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2

In which Alia and Dan chat about the newest addition to the MCU, Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2! We dish on Drax, "marvel" at the technology of de-aging, gently weep about a trash panda, and distill humans into their two most fundamental categories: Guardians fans and Doctor Strange fans.

Episode 39 | The Fate Of The Furious

In which Alia and Dan ride or die.  Or talk all about the newest entry in the long-running Fast and Furious franchise.  One of those.  On this spoiler-filled episode of Nerd Build, we discuss the action-packed Fate of the Furious and the sprawling journey of the Furious story, our hopes for the future of the series, and who would win in a fight between The Rock and a Harrier Jet.  Hint: it's The Rock.  All this, and more, on Episode 39 of Nerd Build!

Episode 37 | Power Rangers

In which in the midst of a Twitch Power Rangers marathon binge, Dan and Alia get the urge to dive into the big budget reboot of the rainbow-clad, Mighty Morphinomenal 90s treasure.  Did this update hurricane-kick its way into our hearts?  Or did we leave feeling (Rita) repulsed? Exactly how awesome is it to see the Megazord do a German Suplex?  All the answers to these questions and more on Episode 37 of Nerd Build!

Episode 31 | The Lego Batman Movie

In which, after a three week break where we were sick and out of town a lot, we are back! Today we had free preview screening tickets to The Lego Batman Movie and are here to tell you about how much fun it was, and how you should go see it. But, you know, it takes like an hour for us to say all of that....

Episode 23 | 31 Days Of Halloween: Week Four

In which we talk a little about our first ever Extra Life stream, and about what movies we watched during the last week of our 31 Days Of Halloween adventure. Crimson Peak, The Wolfman, It Follows, Hocus Pocus, Halloween, The American Scream, The Order: 1886 (okay yes, this is technically a video game), Sleepy Hollow, and the greatest Halloween movie ever: Trick r Treat! 

Happy Halloween!

Episode 22 | 31 Days Of Halloween: Week Three + Phoenix Fan Fest

Episode 20 | 31 Days Of Halloween: Week One

In which we start in on our yearly tradition of watching a scary/Halloween/appropriately themed movie for every day in October. This time you can come along on this adventure with us, as we talk about all the movies we watch on our podcast!

This episode encompasses the first six days of October, over which we watched: Goosebumps, The Visit, Dracula Untold, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Dream House, and Attack the Block. We will let you know if we recommend or don't recommend each of these movies, and get ready for some terrible Halloween related puns.

Let's get spooky!
