Andy Farnsworth is joined once again by Fangirl Taylor Powers for a deep dive into "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them".

If you are concerned about spoilers, DO NOT LISTEN UNTIL YOU'VE SEEN THE MOVIE!

In Part 2, Andy & Taylor continue their discussion, exploring a little more the relationship between the main characters Tina, Newt, Queenie & Jacob...wonder when this portion of history takes place--before or AFTER the death of Dumbledore's sister Ariana...and possibly figure out an incredible connection between Credence and a major character from the Harry Potter series.

Andy Farnsworth is joined once again by Fangirl Taylor Powers for a deep dive into "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them".

If you are concerned about spoilers, DO NOT LISTEN UNTIL YOU'VE SEEN THE MOVIE!

In Part 1, Andy & Taylor recap plot points, talk a little off-screen history of some of the characters and discover that Andy has never been sorted into a Hogwarts house, unlike Taylor (Hufflepuff)--who also realized too late she would have been the perfect age and physical description to play one of the characters in the original "Harry Potter" movie series.

The SLC Fanboys talk "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them", the newest entry into the Harry Potter movie franchise from Warner Bros.  Don't worry, NO SPOILERS contained herein but you WILL get to hear from the Maker herself, J.K. Rowling.

Adam Thomas really liked the movie, despite never having read the Harry Potter books (or even seen ONE of the HP movies before!).  Andy Farnsworth has all the insider nods that fans will catch, the story & the visuals. He also LOVES that HP fans will know what it was like for him when he saw the first Harry Potter movie.

"Fantastic Beasts" stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Katherine Waterston as Porpentina Goldstein, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein, Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski, Ezra Miller as Credence and Colin Farrell as Percival Graves.  The movie was written and produced by J.K. Rowling.

What if... Kylo Ren had been played by Eddie Redmayne instead of Adam Driver?

SLC Fanboys Adam Thomas and Andy Farnsworth discuss the revelation that the Oscar-winning Redmayne auditioned for the part of Ren from Star Wars The Force Awakens and imagine how that might have turned out.

They also talk about the possibility (however remote) that the X-Men could join the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe & how Doctor Strange fits into this.

Finally, would you like to see a live-action Voltron movie? There's a chance you might get to in the near future.

In Part 2  we discuss some of what we disliked (some nitpicking by the girls), give the movie our FINAL rating, and say whether or not we'd own this movie when it's available.  (There's also some Chris Pratt fangirling thrown in)

WARNING: LISTEN AFTER SEEING DOCTOR STRANGE IF YOU WISH TO REMAIN SPOILER-FREE

Andy Farnsworth is joined by Fangirls Taylor Powers from KSL and McKenzie Romero of the Deseret News to dive deep into the mystic waters of Marvel's "Doctor Strange" starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Mads Mikkelsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Rachel McAdams.

In Part 1 we discuss what we liked, some of the characters and what we learned about them, and "tutting", a hand-based form of dance that the director used to choreograph how the actors depicted the magic in the movie.

NOTE: *Minor* spoilers in the video, but nothing that's not in the trailers

SLC Fanboys Tysen Webb and Andy Farnsworth are joined by Fangirl Taylor Powers with their reactions immediately after seeing Marvel's "Doctor Strange" starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton.

Everyone agreed this was pretty amazing visually and the 3D & IMAX are worth the extra cost.  It looks like Marvel/Disney could have another hit on their hands. 

Oh, and make sure you stay through all the credits!

Nov 2, 2016

Adam Thomas and Andy Farnsworth talk the latest rumors about Star Wars Episode VIII (what is Luke Skywalker wearing?!?!) and positive early rumblings about the Han Solo movie due in 2018.

Adam also unearthed some positive rumors about the plot of Star Trek Discovery and the possibility of a Klingon ship's crew as a regular part of the cast.

Another director has jumped ship from a superhero movie...this time it's Rick Famuyiwa leaving DCEU "The Flash" movie starring Ezra Miller prior to principal photography.

And finally, James Cameron changed how we view 3D movies with 2009's "Avatar", what is he trying to do for "Avatar 2"?
