The summer of 1984 was full of legendary blockbuster releases and Tysen Webb chooses it as his favorite movie summer. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom took Harrison Ford to dark places (and eventually created the PG-13 rating), Gremlins gave us the horror-comedy genre. But Ghostbusters dominated the summer, with help from the Karate Kid and even Star Trek. Previously, Andy Farnsworth argued summer of 1991, and Adam Thomas the summer of 1989 as the best movie summers ever.

McKay Christensen of VR Junkies in Orem joins Fanboys Adam and Tysen to talk about the current state and future of virtual reality, including gaming. It's a technology that has come a long way, and the immediate future is both exciting and a little bit scary.

The new Rogue One trailer has dropped, and there are plenty of new scenes and potential character reveals/development! Andy and Adam were a little worried about seeing the Star Destroyer hover over a plateau in the atmosphere of a planet, but the music in the trailer might be a potential preview of what we'll hear in the movie from composer Alexander Desplat.

Details about Star Trek Discovery are still scant. Adam is worried. There are only five months left until the supposed premiere, and there's no word of major casting, production beginning, or anything else. Adam sends a letter to show creator Bryan Fuller, offering four major suggestions on how to avoid the typical slow start for a Star Trek series.

Special guest Faith Heaton Jolley from KSL.com joins the Fanboys to talk about remakes versus the originals. She wrote an article for KSL.com on this very topic three years ago, and got a ton of feedback.

Among the movies they weigh: Willy Wonka and Chocolate Factory versus Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Also, John Wayne's True Grit versus the Coen Brothers' version. Andy talks about 21 Jump Street and Faith is pretty sure the new Footloose is better, among other things.

There is probably one movie, or one television show, maybe even one particular scene that may have shocked and traumatized you as a child that you remember vividly to this day. Well, the Fanboys have many of those moments. Adam is terrorized by 70's and 80's horror movies, Andy was shocked by movies he thought were going to be safe but still had gory scenes anyway. Tysen is a pretty tough guy, but there was a TV show that made him hide behind the couch.

Breaking news: one of the SLC Fanboys believes Suicide Squad is not a terrible movie, and you should not believe the overwhelming negative hype about it. Although this latest edition to the DC Comics universe has its flaws and the fanboys wonder about production problems and studio conflicts, it's an enjoyable action movie.
