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.

But never mind all that…ENDGAME TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE! We’ll talk about all of the online madness and touch on the final trailer as we inch closer and closer to April 26th.

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.

Ready Player Won: TBR Got it Wrong

Ready Player One, you did it! With the exception of the KON, who had all of the faith in the world for this movie, Jay and Uno both had their reservations. Well, we're glad to admit that WE WERE WRONG. Ready Player One was a great movie and we'll be diving into what we loved, what we wished we would have seen more of, and what we got totally wrong. 

We also have a brand new edition of the MAGIC CRYSTAL BALL for April, A STREAM COME TRUE, and Uno shares the most amazing Atlanta-Inspired "Bibby Story" you'll ever hear. We have all this and so much more on this week's episode of The Beta Report.

FALL PREVIEW (MOVIES)

FALL PREVIEW (MOVIES)

It's Episode 89! It's a sad day here at The Beta Report HQ as we say goodbye to Game of Thrones Season 7, and even more devastating...we bid farewell to the beloved (mostly by us) "Game of Bros" segment! Nevertheless, we unsheathe our gallant words one last time this year and breakdown the season finale of GoT: "The Dragon and the Wolf". But, beware...SPOILERS are gnawing and clawing like the army of the dead in this episode. So, again, beware and proceed with caution.

We also breakdown some of our most anticipated movies of the Fall. With some obvious choices like IT, Thor: Ragnarok, Justice League, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, to some not so obvious picks like Jackie Chan's The Foreigner and...Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle?

The KON also shares his thoughts on the new Amazon Prime super hero show The Tick: Season 1. All that and so much more on this weeks episode of The Beta Report.
