Andy and Adam review Independence Day: Resurgence. It takes place 20 years after the original Independence Day showed the world how much fun it is to destroy landmarks. Will Smith's absence is notable, but Jeff Goldblum leads a cast of familiar returning stars, including Brent Spiner, Judd Hirsch, Bill Pullman, and even a brief cameo from the late Robert Loggia. Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe and Jessie T. Usher join the cast.

The SLC Fanboys remember Anton Yelchin, who was best known for playing Chekov in the most recent run of Star Trek movies.

In addition to Star Trek, Yelchin appeared in "Curb Your Enthusiasm" as a young teenager, was the voice of Clumsy Smurf, and had many more roles.

We're also learning more details about "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," including character names and more casting details. Darth Vader is now confirmed to be making an appearance, and the SLC Fanboys discuss whether they would want to see the iconic villain in another lightsaber fight.

The SLC Fanboys talk about one of the greatest summers ever for movies: 1991. "Terminator 2" set the bar for action/sci-fi flicks with special effects. Andy Farnsworth talks about his love of "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," even with Kevin Costner's performance. "What About Bob" cracked up audiences, as well as "Hot Shots" with Charlie Sheen, and "City Slickers" with Billy Crystal and Academy Award-winner Jack Palance.

The Fanboys review "Finding Dory," the sequel to "Finding Nemo." Andy Farnsworth thought it was a great family show, but wonders whether the IMAX and/or 3D versions of the film are too much for younger kids. The movie was in development by Disney for a long time, and it's possibly the most anticipated direct sequel hitting theaters this year.

The SLC Fanboys talk about Suicide Squad getting a PG-13 rating and whether that's a good idea. Josh Brolin is loving the plot of the next Avengers movie. Hayley Atwell has a problem with a scene with Captain America. Karl Urban apparently had a problem with Star Trek Beyond until he chatted with director Justin Lin. Finally, the fanboys talk about the expensive movie props they'd like to own, now that Disney is releasing a limited line of authentic Star Wars props.

Then, a discussion about classic video games, why Andy Farnsworth thinks Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports game ever, and Adam Thomas assures us that Atari did make an original Star Wars game for the 2600.

Jun 2, 2016

The SLC Fanboys talk about news that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will undergo some reshoots this summer, after Disney execs reportedly balked at the tone of the first cut. The goal is to make it more like Episode IV, which it will directly precede in the timeline.

Then, we discuss memorable and emotional on-screen character deaths. Tysen Webb had a hard time with a specific character on "The Walking Dead." Andy Farnsworth has never recovered from Optimus Prime's murder in 1986's "Transformers: The Movie".  Adam Thomas hated how Star Trek killed Captain Kirk. 

And of course, there was "The Force Awakens"...
