The Rabblecast

We live in a world with a plethora of streaming apps and services. It's nice to see one of them try to streamline themselves. HBO Max will replace HBO GO and HBO NOW at the end of July 2020. AT&T and Warner Bros. are hoping to be another serious competitor in the digital streaming business.

One of their deals will bring us a new cut of Justice League! The 2017 film will have a new life as the #SnyderCut will be an exclusive to HBO Max in 2021. Will you watch the new cut of the film?

If you are looking for something to do while most things are closed or shut down we recommend looking into a virtual reality headset. We recently picked up an, Oculus Quest headset and we have been experimenting with different games and ways to interact with others socially from the comfort of our living room.

Also, in the idea of enjoying things from home, we recently watched Rian Johnson's, Knives Out(2019). A murder mystery story told in the styling of, Agatha Christie. See if you can figure out the guilty party before the credits roll.

And last but certainly not least, we are thrilled to see the return of, Unsolved Mysteries on Netflix.

The current state of affairs in the world makes it difficult to record a show about movies, comics, and other forms of entertainment and pop culture. We try our best to relate our experiences with discrimination and how that can help us understand what is happening in the world today. And why we should have a conversation about racism if we hope to make a better tomorrow for all of us.

Then, on a lighter note, we talk about the recent release of a 90's side scrolling sequel, Streets of Rage 4!

(*Side note: It was not our intention to combine these two subjects in one show. It just worked out in a weird way.)

After a recent stay in the hospital we had some down time to watch a few different movies! Thank goodness for Netflix!

First on the short list, The Highwaymen an American period crime drama film directed by John Lee Hancock. The film stars Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson as Frank Hamer and Maney Gault, two former Texas Rangers who attempt to track down and apprehend notorious criminals Bonnie and Clyde in the 1930s.

Then we move onto, Uncut Gems an American crime thriller film directed by Josh and Benny Safdie. The film stars Adam Sandler as Howard Ratner, a Jewish jeweler and gambling addict in New York City's Diamond District, who must retrieve an expensive gem he purchased to pay off his debts.

And we also talk about, LOVE DEATH + ROBOTS an American adult animated anthology series.

Based on a graphic novel from, Ande Parks and written by Ande Parks and the Russo Bros.(Directors of many MCU movies). Directed by, Sam Hargrave. It is currently available on Netflix.

This episode also marks the 14 year anniversary of The Rabblecast!

We're trying to be responsible by following the Stay At Home orders that are currently in place in NJ. What better way to enjoy time at home than to watch movies that we missed out on in 2019? I recently watched Men In Black: International starring, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. While it had its moments, it wasn't as fun as the originals.

And then we went onto, Brightburn starring Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, and Jackson Dunn. This movie presents a simple premise. What if Superman turned evil at an early age? We get into it and a whole lot more!

What do you do when you can't go to the movies? What if you could have new releases come straight home to you? That's the main dispute that's going on between AMC Theaters and Universal Pictures after the release of, Trolls World Tour for premium video on demand. Universal Pictures thought it was a good idea to release the film straight into our homes for those sheltering in place. AMC is upset that the studio bypassed the theater release. Where do you land on this dispute?

We also talk about, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Venom.

During this crazy time some of us have been given time to be home. Time with our families, time with our hobbies, or just time by ourselves. What do you do to pass the time?

On this episode, we try to give everyone out there a few suggestions on what to do, what to watch, or just a way to pass the time until we can get back to some sort of a routine.

Have any suggestions? If you want to share some of your stories let us know!
