Pacific Rim: Uprising is set 10 years after the events of the first film. We are introduced to a new generation of Jaeger pilots led by a reluctant Jake Pentecost(John Boyega), son of Stacker Pentecost(Idris Elba's character from the first film). We take a look at what the movie has to offer and what it lacks. SPOILERS ahead if you haven't seen either movie yet.

Also on this show, we talk about the release of Ready Player One, the Steven Spielberg directed adaptation of Ernest Cline's hit book. The book and the film are described as "Love letters" to the pop-culture of the 80's(and the 90's in the film). Did the film deliver on the lofty goal of recreating the world that Ernest Cline imagined? We try to stay mostly SPOILER-FREE on this one.

We also talk about the recent news of Toys R US toy stores going out of business. Did you shop at Toys R Us as a child? Do you remember the jingles? Are you sad to see the company go?

All of this and much more!

First and foremost we say, goodbye to a remarkable individual as the science world and the world over mourns the loss of, Stephen Hawking(aged 76). He was a brilliant mind that persevered and continued his work despite the early onset of a rare form of ALS and only being given about two years to live(he was diagnosed when he was 21). Hawking continued to work for the next 55 years until his recent passing.

From there we go on to talk about the return of Daniel Bryan to in-ring action! Bryan was forced to retire a few years back to due to medical issues that prevented him from being cleared medically to compete in a WWE ring. With Wrestlemania 34 just around the corner wrestling fans are clamoring for return of the WWE Superstar. But will there be a spot on the card for him?
