There are plenty of easter eggs in Star Trek Beyond. Fanboys Andy and Adam review some of them, then talk more about the movie. Warning! There are spoilers here, and that's OK because it's been a week since Beyond was released. Adam is also concerned about the development of Star Trek Discovery and wonders if the franchise is just destined to roll out series this way.

Plenty of Rogue One and Episode VIII news out of Star Wars Celebration Europe this week! From new characters (shoretroopers, shadow troopers) to new plot details (Han's funeral maybe?), to panels featuring director Gareth Edwards and stars Ben Mendelson (Director Orson Krennic) and Felicity Jones (Jyn Erso). Also, a secret trailer aired that the SLC Fanboys would love to find.  We finally got to hear from Alden Ehrenreich, the guy who will play young Han Solo in a couple of years.

Andy Farnsworth & Tysen Webb also got excited about the idea of Grand Admiral Thrawn on "Star Wars Rebels" and Adam Thomas bravely answered the question of what he would do if he got to go on the set of the Millennium Falcon!

SLC Fanboys Tysen Webb and Andy Farnsworth talk Ghostbusters with show host Doug Wright and movie critic Steve Salles on "The Movie Show" on KSL NewsRadio 102.7 FM & 1160 AM in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Also joining them (in full gear--though you can't see it) was SLC Ghostbuster Wes Roberts who also liked the film, despite his great love for the original with Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd.

Andy & Tysen double-down on their thoughts that the new movie with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones & Kate McKinnon is a fun summer flick.  Doug thinks it was a bit too reverential at times and just a step shy of parody at others.  Steve feels the reverential tone both helped and hurt it.

Brace yourselves, SLC Fanboys actually have generally positive things to say about the new Ghostbusters movie starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth (aka Thor).

Despite the trailer being the most disliked YouTube clip in history (almost 1M), director Paul Feig and producer Ivan Reitman have actually come up with a story that pays loving tribute to the classic 1984 film while having an original story and characters.

Pokémon Go is sweeping the country and the Fanboys are joined by a special guest to explain the game and the phenomenon. McKenzie Romero from the Deseret News has been a Pokémon fan since she was in middle school.

Andy Farsworth and Adam Thomas take a look back at the movies of the summer of 1989, which Adam argues is the strongest blockbuster summer, ever! Andy previously went with 1991, but '89 brings some strong competition with it.

There's Ghostbusters II, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Batman, for starters. Star Trek V bombed in the middle of that, and for reasons somewhat related to those other movies. Tim Burton's Batman redefined the comic book movie and don't forget about Honey, I Shrunk the Kids!

The SLC Fanboys go over the latest news, including the final Star Trek: Beyond trailer. Andy Farnsworth is impressed with Adam Thomas' reaction to the trailer, which includes a new song by Rihanna called "Sledgehammer". Also, Samuel L. Jackson doesn't think Mace Windu is dead, so will that have an effect on future Star Wars productions? Also, the Fanboys revisit their reviews of Independence Day: Resurgence, which is bombing at the domestic box office.
