Back to the Future, Die Hard…Blood Sport? There are a few movies out there that should never be remade. And, one of those films is, The Princess Bride. It’s just inconceivable! But, of course, rumors are swirling that this might be the next classic film in line for a new adaptation. The Beta Bros weigh in on the classic debate: TO Reboot or NOT to Reboot? But what about parody?
TBR also dives into some fresh DC Talk as the Joker reactions begin to storm in and new updates regarding James Gunn’s Suicide Squad just surfaced. All that and so much more on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.
As an entertainment podcast its our job…NAY! Our duty, to be well informed and to watch EVERYTHING. Well, that ain’t happening! We got kids! #Toddlers We got regular jobs! #MogulLife And, growing up, Citizen Kane was just the VHS tape in front of Schwarzenegger’s Commando and Conan The Barbarian at our local movie rental spot, Video Max. So, yeah, we missed a few things. Now with streaming networks springing up new shows and movies to watch almost everyday, its hard to keep up with everything that is out. But, we eventually get to them and this episode is dedicated to those shows and movies we were a little late to get to, but highly recommend.
It goes without saying that Joaquin Phoenix’s performance of the Joker looks fantastic. The tense anticipation surrounding this film is reaching meteoric levels, but has this new trailer actually hurt the hype? The Beta Boys dive into the twisted madness of Gotham and the Joker and its latest trailer and try to figure out if the Joker and its promotion has done enough to keep us excited. TBR also recaps all of the great stuff that just dropped at the D23 Expo. From Marvel, to Disney, to Star Wars, the Beta Bros were all thoroughly blown away by all of the announcements that were made in Anaheim, CA.
All that, and so much more, on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.
Are you really safe? After Mindhunter Season 1, this question shouldn’t really be rhetorical. Can we really feel safe after this show let us peek inside the mind of these serial killers as effectively as it did? Ummm, NOPE! Season 2 of Mindhunter is here and The Beta Boys discuss why this show continues to be a Gold Medal/Top Tier Netflix Original.

If we’re making a list of all of the underrated actors in Hollywood, you guessed it, Karl Urban would be on it. He amassed an incredible filmography, and yet, i still feel like we’re just getting to know the scowled faced Aussie. So, we’re giving him his shine in this episode after another tremendous turn as Billy Butcher on The Boys.
We also review the next best action franchise: Hobbs & Shaw. We also discuss if a dude can rock a pink ring or not…if The Rock can, i say, YES! All that and so much more on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.

We then fly sky high for a little Top Gun, the new terminator, and HBO’s new series, Watchmen. Could this possibly be Game of Thrones’ successor? Listen to find out.
So, if you’re a little Marvel-fatigued, then this is the episode for you!
To say that the MCU owned Comic Con is a bit of understatement…they DOMINATED COMIC CON! The MCU completely obliterated obliterated everyone this weekend with a massive reveal of some of their upcoming Phase 4 movie releases, their Disney+ TV show line-up, and a few shocking surprises that no one was expecting. We’ll take a look at all of the new releases they announced and try our best to figure out where the MCU is headed as they continue to reign supreme at the top of the entertainment heap.

Do you remember the first time your parents heard you cuss or caught you flipping off your TV after raging over the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Sega Genesis game when you were five years old? I DO! And it was…awkward. Almost as awkward as Latino comedians, classic movie remakes, and crying in the theater as you watch the live action Lion King movie, which, coincidentally are all things we are talking about on today’s special “Mixed Bag of Amazingess” episode.
I won’t bore your with a long winded description for this one. The first 30 seconds of this episode says it all! We’re in for a wild-winding-ride on this episode. Disney, Spider-Man, Stranger Things Season 3…and yes, beautiful, beautiful music!

DC for all its rich lore, storied history, and decades of comic book triumphs, is still trying to find its way out of Marvel Studio’s shadow. But, with the recent success of movies like Shazam! and Aquaman and the criminally underrated DC Universe slate of shows including Doom Patrol, DC is finally starting to dig itself out of the murky stinking bog of mediocrity and public appeal. Couple that with all of the upcoming DC projects headed our way like: James Gunn’s Suicide Squad, Joaquin Phoenix’s The Joker, and the Robert Pattinson led Batman movie, I think it was time for TBR to break out The DC Talk!

Well, like the title says, we got more for that hole! The Beta Bros have scoured the annals of entertainment to find several shows we’re looking forward to seeing.

Oh and we also can’t leave without talking about the new, shiny and sparkly announcement: We’ve got a new Batman. Is it who we would have picked? Is it an inspired choice? Will history repeat itself and will an odd casting choice actually turn out to be one of the greatest depictions of the caped crusader? So many questions…but, we’ve got your answers on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.
There has never been four letters strung together and emphatically spoken aloud that can completely embody someone as much as: “WHOA” and Keanu Reeves (Well, I’m sure Samuel L. Jackson fans may beg to differ). He masterfully wields each letter like a precisely placed John Wick bullet into our brains, delivering the emotional kill-shot that we all know Reeves can deliver (insert sarcasm here). John Wick 3: Parabellum is out this week, so we wanted to take some time to celebrate the man, the myth, the legend Keanu Reeves.
But, precision be damned! We’re also here for dragon fire, awkward character choices, and undeserved deaths. That’s right, we’re talking Game of Thrones, Season 8, Episode 5: The Bells. We got all this and so much more on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.
Lets all just take a collective deep breath…Ok, so Disney really does own everything doesn’t it?

From new movies, shows and even other podcasts we think you guys should check out, this show has a little something for everyone’s binging pleasure.
