We are leaving it all on the wire and we discuss who laid their life down on it and didn’t make it out alive. All that and so much more, on this special episode of The Beta Report.

Celebrate the Saga: The MCU Makes History & Our Endgame Prep

Guys…we’re in the endgame now. And, that’s not just in reference to the new Avengers movie, but for all movies and how we enjoy watching them. The Infinity Saga has completely redefined our movie going experience and the sheer thought of what the MCU/Marvel Studios has been able to accomplish is amazing. To put it plainly, there has been at least one marvel movie in theaters for the past 11 years!!! So, for that, we’re not only going to talk about Endgame, we also want to take the time to celebrate the saga and look back at the last 11 years/21 movies and recount some of our favorite characters, moments, quotes, etc. All leading to our Endgame Prep. You don’t want to miss this episode.

Is Netflix a Sinking Ship?

Is Netflix a Sinking Ship?

We’re all saddened by the sudden—yet expected—news that The Punisher and Jessica Jones are now officially cancelled. The general consensus is that they’ll more than likely return on Disney’s streaming service, Disney+ due out later this year (presumably in the fall). So, with Disney making a push at the streaming service game and Hulu as well as Amazon Prime releasing great original content, is Netflix a sinking ship doomed to go under? Is there enough original content on Netflix’s roster to keep you on their service? Are they doing a good enough job of supplementing what’s leaving with something as good and/or better? The Beta Boys tackle all these questions and more, including a review of one of those original series: The Umbrella Academy.

Plus another New Tune Tuesday, on Thursday…except on Friday. All that an so much more on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.

RIP, Batfleck. So, Who's Next?

To the most homicidal iteration of Batman we’ve ever seen…we bid you farewell. As we say goodbye to Ben Affleck, our cleft chin crusader, we ask the one question on everyone’s mind: So, who’s next? Who can or should step into the cape and cowl and be the next Batman?

We also step into another dimension, where time stops and TV shows no longer get rebooted. The Beta Boys react to Jordan Peele’s upcoming reboot of the horror/sci-fi classic The Twilight Zone. There’s also a report about LOST getting the reboot treatment. But, do we need it though? We take a look at the upcoming reboots and we also offer up some of our suggestions for some reboots that we’d love to see. All that and so much more, on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.

GLASS REVIEW (SPOILER-ISH)

Comment

GLASS REVIEW (SPOILER-ISH)

In case you guys haven’t heard, GLASS has made more than $100 Million Dollars in the box office to date. It only took $20 Million to make. That’s insane! But, it is good though? Did we really need this trilogy 18 years after Unbreakable first burst onto the scene? And the twists…were they effective or is it all just played out now? The Beta Bros take a deep dive into M. Night Shyamalan’s introspection of the superhero genre to give you guys their impressions, likes, and dislikes.

We also talk about Glass’ main competition last weekend with the return of our favorite gun wielding vigilante Frank Castle in Netflix’s The Punisher, Season 2. Jay also gives his thoughts on the third season of the HBO thriller: True Detective. Its a packed show!

Plus, the return of the New Tune Tuesday, on Thursday…except when its on Friday! All of this, and so much more on today’s episode of The Beta Report.

2019 Oscar Noms: Will Oscar Trade His Gold For Vibranium?

The 2019 Oscar nominations were revealed this week. Movies ranging from Netflix Originals to the powerhouse studio mainstays were all well represented in every category of this year’s noms. But, none more surprising than Black Panther receiving a Best Picture nomination. Will Oscar trade his gold for vibranium and award Marvel’s smash hit with Hollywood’s highest honor? Would an Oscar win lend any further validity to comic book movies as not just “good fun” but also great films? The Beta Bros discuss this year’s nerd-filled Oscar nominations and discuss whether Hollywood is finally acknowledging comic book movies as culture defining films.

We talk all this and so much more on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.

Punishing the Glass

No, this isn’t the Beta Report’s new NBA-centric podcast about great rebounders in NBA history. It’s just a clever title. Although, that would be a pretty great idea. File away for later (Patent Pending)…This is however one of those moments where the universe just aligns things for you perfectly and you have no choice but to bring it to light: Punisher+Glass=Jigsaw…this stuff writes itself!

Anyway, on today’s episode the Beta Boy’s preview two of their most anticipated releases of 2019: The Punisher Season 2 and M. Night Shyamalan’s GLASS! There are a lot of things on the line for these two releases, like is M. Night Shyamalan’s resurgence for real or is he destined to fall back into mediocrity? And, is The Punisher the next Marvel Netflix show in the cancellation cross-hairs no matter how great it is? We answer all of these questions and give our thoughts regarding the poor reviews and terrible Rotten Tomatoes score GLASS has right now…35%!!! YIKES.

All that and so much more on this Friday edition of The Beta Report.

Just in time for The Beta Report to rip it to shreds and give you every little detail you might have missed, like: Is Mysterio a wizard from Kamar Taj, where Dr. Strange also learned his magic?

Any questions you might have, I’m sure we’ve got the answers. We’ve got all that and so much more, on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.

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).

We also have a “New Tune Tuesday…on Thursday” (we’re working on the name!) for you, a new batch of PICK(s) OF THE WEEK, and so much more on a new episode of The Beta Report.

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.
