Welcome to the Comparative Opinions podcast! This week hosts Holly and David made it to Thor: Ragnarok, and the time to talk about it is now! This is the last episode of Comparative Opinions this year, we’ll be back in January! So yeah, spoiler-light and then spoiler-filled discussion of Thor: Ragnarok, which turned out to be a hard movie to talk about without spoilers… short answer: go see it!
Week in Geek, episode 10, recorded 10/26/17. News since last recording, including: Punisher versus Justice League; Thor: Ragnarok and the future of Thor; contenders for worst movie of the year; more is coming from the Dark Tower; Pandemic Legacy Season 2; quick TV show news including Star Trek Discovery, Doctor Who, and Daredevil; and potential movies coming up including X-23 and Deathstroke. Oh, and libraries are not dead.
I haven’t been very good about keeping content going for Science Fiction Saturday, sorry about that. And this one isn’t much, but it’s good, so it has that going for it! Nerdist made a fan trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, a movie that already has awesome trailers. How could they improve on it?
What’s funny with them making an 80s style trailer for this movie is the fact that, with the styling and all, people were already saying it looked like an 80s science fiction film. Now it just has the era-appropriate trailer to ramp that up a notch, I guess!
Week in Geek, episode 4, recorded 9/14/17. News since last recording, including: a Die Hard children’s Christmas book; Last Week Tonight with John Oliver being renewed for 3 seasons; Patty Jenkins signs on for Wonder Woman 2; JJ Abrams returns for Star Wars Episode IX; Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3; and the writing credits situation with Thor Ragnarok.
