Cardi Beta Bros: Cha'Ching!

There's no better way to prime your way to the weekend than a little Cardi B and your favorite Podcast hosts trying to sing the words to a song they don't know. Let's get it!

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. We discuss the new wave of female representation in Disney movies and we also give our first impressions of the live action Mulan movie and the first look at the titular character that was recently released.

Plus, as always, we have a killer new batch of recommendations for this week's PICK OF THE WEEK, and so much more.

      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.

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.

Who is The New Box Office Champ?

Who is The New Box Office Champ?

Arnold schwarzenegger, Tom Cruise, Will Smith...these titans ruled over all other actors for years at the box office. At the height of their powers, their draw at the box office was pretty undeniable. People flocked to movies that starred any one of these guys and we were all happy to throw money at their feet. But, as Marvel and the rise of comic book movies have sort of monopolized over the box office, which one actor could be the next Box Office Champ? Well, The Beta Report throws down in the ring and drop kicks each other's choices until one contender is left standing!

We also have a brand new TOP 5, which includes Acri-mo-nee..Ah-cri-mo-nye...You know what we're saying. A new cataclysmic GO/NO GO featuring a box office champion contender, and, as always, a new PICK OF THE WEEK. We've got all that, and...SO MUCH MORE. Keep it locked here for a new 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!

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.

Los Doyers! World Series Special w/MLB Expert

As you guys know, we are native sons of Los Angeles, CA. So, seeing our Dodgers make it to the World Series after a 28 year drought, is a kind of a big deal. Now, because of this historic run, we just had to do a baseball-centric show to discuss our Dodgers as well as some classic baseball movies to get us in the right World Series spirit. AND...we've brought on our own MLB Expert, Chef Extraordinaire and previous guest, the ever so lovely: Jocelyne Zelaya to help us analyze and predict the Dodgers vs. Astros match-up. 

Aside from being a baseball fan and expert, as we mentioned above, Jocelyne is also an incredible and talented chef and we talk once again about her culinary career and the shows and chefs that inspire her to do what she does. We also have a brand new PICK OF THE WEEK and so much more. So, make sure and listen to this week's episode of The Beta Report.
