(Warning: Spoilers in this podcast)

"Extinction" tells the story of a man (Michael Pena) having visions of doom for his family and earth. No one believes him until things in his visions start coming true. This SOUNDS like a premise for a great movie...but the result misses the mark.

In this episode, Andy Farnsworth, (One Minute Critic) Kristian Odland, and Ryan Meeks discuss why Extinction is not the great movie it could have been, and why it ended up skipping theaters and going straight to Netflix.

Star Trek: The Next Generation fans are rejoicing at the news that Sir Patrick Stewart announced at Star Trek Las Vegas: He will be returning as Jean-Luc Picard in a new series streaming on CBS All-Access.

In this episode of the podcast, Andy Farnsworth, Adam Thomas, and Ryan Meeks discuss the possibilities of the new series and the difficulties Stewart may face reprising the role.

If you have ever enjoyed or not enjoyed a superhero movie, then "Teen Titans Go to the Movies" will have you laughing out loud throughout the duration of the film. This animated feature is based on the popular Cartoon Network show "Teen Titans Go" and has much of the same humor and superhero shenanigans that the tv show does. 

In this podcast, Andy Farnsworth and Ryan Meeks not only talk about this movie but go into more discussion on why it is that DC has such a difficult time with their live-action feature films but not their tv shows.
