The Beta Report Effect Strikes Again!

The Beta Report Effect Strikes Again!

It might be coincidental, or clearly scientific, and perhaps a bit mystical, regardless of how you’d like to classify it, one thing remains true: THE BETA REPORT EFFECT IS REAL! They've often joked about the power of the TBR Effect, but now even we are beginning to believe it. The Beta Bros react to the astonishing ways The Effect has worked its entertainment magic in so many ways this week. From the sudden swell of Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker images and videos flooding our streams, to The House with a Clock in its Walls hitting the top spot on the TOP 5, we’ve developed the Midas Touch and we’d like to share the wealth.

The KON also reacts to a movie he may or may not have seen, as a brand new Bumblebee Trailer buzzed its way onto the internet. Plus, there are some creepy things going on in the TBR studio today…and Jay blames The Nun! Listen to find out if The Beta Bros made it out of this episode alive.

Ship It! Movie Couples We Love & Romantic Date Ideas

Ship It! Movie Couples We Love & Romantic Date Ideas

From Allie and Noah in the Notebook, to Jim and Pam from The Office, some Movie and TV romances are too good to be make-believe. There are some timeless love stories in movies and television that transcend the confines of our screens and nestle deep in the warmest, most cuddliest parts of our hearts. We watch them and dwell on them, but then realize, its not real. But, what if, they weren't fake? What if, our favorite movie/TV romances could magically slip out of the screen, and just like the story of Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves actually getting married on the set of Dracula, their onscreen tales of love were actually, real? If this were the case, The KON and Jay give their favorite movie couples they wish could come true.

And, what's a good relationship without a few romantic rendezvous? A lovers getaway? A mid-summer soiree? Well, have no fear, because The Beta Bros have a few museum recommendations that will breath life into any love affair..while also satiating your hunger for adventure and excitement in the new world of dark tourism. There's nothing more romantic than the museum of ventriloquist dummies, Mexican mummy's, or Toilets in India! We got all this and so much more, on this week's episode of The Beta Report.

COMIC-CON 2018 RECAP

Comic-Con 2018 was this weekend aaaannnnddd....Did anyone really care? The Beta Boys are back to talk about the underwhelming sensation we all got after this year's Comic-Con. Its a reminder of just how much Disney/Marvel/Lucasfilm mean to the convention and how its presence and/or absence is definitely felt. Or is it something else? Is the lack of new and creative ideas put at the forefront once the spectacle of Disney and friends aren't there to hide the mediocrity? 

But, it wasn't all doom and gloom, there were a few standouts that actually shattered our boredom and blew our expectations out of the water! The KON, Jay, and Uno dive into their favorite trailers from the Con and point out a few gems that we should all be looking forward to with a new TRAILER PARK segment.

Pixar Movies Make Me Cry

Pixar Movies Make Me Cry

I think we can all relate with the title. For years, Pixar has figured out new and exciting ways to make us cry...and we love it! Whether its 30 minutes of robots lovingly musing and not speaking a word, introducing a couple's love and heartbreak in the first 10 minutes of a film, or allowing us to share one final emotional moment with our favorite toys. If Pixar movies don't make you feel a certain way by the end of each movie...you might want to check your pulse! So, with The Incredibles 2 shattering records and taking hold of the box office's top spot, The Beta Bros, The KON and Jay, offer up their 5 favorite Pixar movies. The results might make you un poco loco. They also offer up their 5 LEAST favorite Pixar movies, which was actually harder to do than expected. 

They also have a brand new TOP 5 box office list with a brief Incredibles 2 review by Jay, a brand new bullet proof choice in this week's STREAM COME TRUE, and a new savage PICK OF THE WEEK comes roaring through. All that and so much more, on this week's episode of The Beta Report.

Black Lightning & Pun Man Save the Day

When you're struck with a jolt of fear and the thunderous charge of danger is shockingly near. Worry not, as the electrifying duo of Black Lightning and Pun Man are here to light your darkest nights! Okay, that is about as punny as I can get without throwing up. But, this is our show in a nutshell. We review the CW's brand new super hero show Black Lightning's first episode. Are the characters compelling? Is the villain a real threat? Is this show Beta Approved? You'll have to listen to find out. 

And, as the CW universe of DC characters continues to expand, we discuss what movie or TV universe we'd most like to live in. Would Uno like to live in the MCU to assume his secret super hero identity: Pun Man? Would the Kon want to meet the alternate Khan in the Star Trek Universe? Am I going to Never-land so that I can really be Forever Five?!? You'll just have to listen to find out. 

We also decided to extend last week's SECRET WORD CHALLENGE for one more week! We also have a new SECRET WORD CHALLENGE for this week that would effect our blog. Plus, as always, we have a new...no, we have THREE PICKS OF THE WEEK for you to check out. All that and many many more puns, and so much more, on this week's episode of The Beta Report.

TV Time: 2018 Preview

The box. Telly. Small screen. The tube. The boob-tube. TV. Television. We all have one. Or two, or three. We even carry one in our pocket now! The way we consume TV shows today, has changed dramatically in the last couple of years. With streaming services, cable channel apps, and video-sharing websites all providing access to what we could only get at a certain time in one particular place, has now opened up a world of opportunities to mind-numbingly binge every TV show that is out there. But, with all those possibilities now available to us, it might be hard to figure out what to watch, when to watch, and where to watch some of the new and returning shows in 2018. That’s where we come in. The Beta Report has done all your homework for you. They don’t call one of us the King of The Nerds for nothing. In today’s episode, we highlight some of the best brand new shows coming out this year and we also look at some of our favorite returning shows like Jessica Jones, The Handmaid’s Tale and Atlanta.

We also have a new PICK OF THE WEEK and a challenge for all of our listeners…Listen in to see what that might be and what that might mean for Uno, Kon, and Jay. We got all that and so much more on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.

2017: In Review

2017: In Review

Happy New Year everyone! We hope you had a fun and safe holiday season with friends and family. Now, its our turn to celebrate with you as we look forward to kicking off the new year with a brand new show! But, before we dive head first into the new year, we want to look back at what 2017 had to offer.

Last year was such a great year in entertainment. From Logan to Wonder Woman, COCO to Get Out, Mindhunter to The Punisher, we had one of, if not, THE BEST year for movies and TV shows EVER. While some of you might consider that a bit of an exaggeration, its hard to deny that 2017 was, at the very least, one of the greatest years for comic book movies and TV shows we've ever had! Just look at this list: Wonder Woman, Logan, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel's The Punisher on Netflix, Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, The Gifted, Thor: Ragnarok, Legion, Justice League, etc. And that's just the comic book related stuff. The list can go on and on if we consider the other greats (cough cough...STAR WARS, Stranger Things: Season 2, IT...cough cough). 

So, click the link below to hear what we loved, hated, and regretted not seeing in 2017. We also give a brief look at what we're most excited for this new year, our PICK OF THE WEEK, and Uno's brand new impression (WAKANDA FOREVER). All that, plus so much more, on this week's episode of The Beta Report.

Un Poco de Coco [Movie Review & Avengers Trailer Reaction]

Dread it. Run from it. But The Beta Report will always bring you a new episode! The Beta Bros are back and we're reacting to the record breaking Avengers: Infinity War Trailer. We go toe to toe with Marvel's most formidable foe and breakdown Bruce Willis in Space aka Thanos' every move. What does his presence mean for our heroes who currently possess an Infinity Stone? Where is the Soul Stone? Who will die? Who will survive? Is Jay's one sided bromance with bearded Captain America weird? We answer all of those questions and so much more. 

We also revel in the magnificence of Pixar's newest hit movie: COCO. Jay gives us his review of both COCO and the Frozen short movie: Olaf's Frozen Adventure. ¡Y no manchen hijos, esta pelicula esta pero requete-buena! ¡Te lo juro! 

Plus, we got TWO new PICKS OF THE WEEK for you! We got all that and so much more on this week's episode of The Beta Report.

Tofurky Talk & Leftover Thoughts

What’s thanksgiving without a few leftovers? And what’s a post-thanksgiving episode without some tofurkey talk and a little more Justice League thoughts? This week, we revisit last week’s Justice League discussion and touch on a few things that we didn’t have a chance to get to. Namely, the appearance of Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, his stand-alone movie, The Legion of Doom, and the DCEU’s future. We also had to talk about Kevin Feige’s most recent comments about Avengers 4, and the most certain end of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. Who will we see in the next phase? Which of our beloved heroes will make it out alive or simply fade away?

We also share same Thanksgiving stories, Black Friday nostalgia and let downs, and of course, our PICK OF THE WEEK! So, make sure and click the link/play button below to listen to this week’s new episode.
