Has DC Figured it Out? Are Shazam & The Joker Worth Watching?

We are very close to making this question rhetorical…but, has DC finally figured it out? Are these new Zack Snyder-less movies any good? Should we be excited for The Joker and Shazam? The Beta Boys answer all these questions and some. We also say his name in a brand new GO/NO GO. Should you go watch Shazam this weekend? Listen to find out what we think.

The Beta Report Effect Strikes Again!

Comment

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.

Joaquin Phoenix, The Next Great Joker?

Comment

Joaquin Phoenix, The Next Great Joker?

A psychopath, a sadist with a twisted sense of humor, the antithesis of sanity…is this describing The Joker or Joaquin Phoenix? Well now, its actually both. We just got our first glimpse of Phoenix as “Arthur” or the man who one day becomes The Clown Prince of Crime for the upcoming Joker origin movie. The Beta Boy’s react to his casting and where we think Phoenix ranks among all of the other actors who have portrayed “The Man Who Laughs” before him.

We also have a brand new Go No Go featuring an Eli Roth movie meant for the entire family. The man who made Hostel just made a family film? That is truly terrifying. We also have a fresh new PICK OF THE WEEK and another New Tune Tuesday…on Thursday…But, on Friday! (We’re still working on the title for this one).

With hidden clues, ancient civilizations, an iron serpent, and an international boogeyman, this Fall TV season is arguably more stacked than the upcoming movies coming out to close 2018.

Fall Movie Preview (2018)

The warm orange glow of Fall is slowly covering us like a well worn sweater. Summer is now a foregone memory and the adventures of the sun baked season call for the slow drawl of a forlorn autumn day. There’s nothing better on a cool autumn night than a good movie, and this Fall is chalk full of them! From Creed II, Widows, Ralph Breaks the Internet, to the hilarious misadventures of the new Will Ferrell and John C. Riley midcentury romp: Holmes & Watson, this fall is shaping up to be special. Listen in as The Beta Report breaks down all of the must see movies of the fall and, more importantly, the movies you should most definitely stay away from.

Late to The Party: Movies We May Have Missed, But You Shouldn't!

Like with most things, it wouldn't really be The Beta Report if we weren't fashionably late...TO EVERYTHING! It's kind of our calling card. And though, timing is a factor for a movie's current relevance and impact, a great movie can always be judged by its timelessness and transcendent qualities. So, we've tirelessly scoured the pantheon of great movies that may have passed us by and compiled a few interesting choices of movies and TV shows that we missed on their initial release, but we highly suggest you watch. We're just a little late to the party, but the party never really gets started until we arrive. #TheBetaReportEffect #ItsReal

Also, we got a brand new PICK OF THE WEEK that is neither tame nor ordinary in any way.

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.

Nothing says Cardi B and the weekend more than...Disney movies? That's right, from Cardi B to Disney Princesses to Live Action Disney Classic Remakes, this episode has a little bit of everything, for everyone.

      The Meg. This really just happened. Confirmation by this week's TOP 5, Action Stars still bring people to theaters. But, are our current action stars just raking in our money without creating iconic characters? Are Jason Statham and The Rock synonymous with any of their characters in the same way The Terminator and John McClain are synonymous with Arnie and Bruce Willy? The Beta Bros discuss.

Presenting: A TBR Joint

Ladies and gentlemen, presenting: A TBR Joint. We bring you just a little bit of STATIC. A story about the right hand and the left hand, good and evil, love and hate: Blackkklansman and The Meg, Spike Lee and Jason Statham. The Beta Bros have a fresh new GO/NO GO featuring the return of the man, the myth, the legend: Spike Lee and his new film Blackkklansman. Does Spike have more juice than Statham to bring people to theaters? Is a great director more attractive than a great action star? The boy's discuss. 

We also have a brand new STREAM COME TRUE featuring a Youtube channel you should all be following and a 90's action classic that we've all probably erased from our minds. And, for the first time, in a long time, we have a unanimous winner for this week's PICK OF THE WEEK. All that, and so much more, on this week's episode of The Beta Report.

Oh and remember...Always do the right thing. Got it? Got it. I'm gone.
