Fall Movie Preview (2018)

The warm orange glow of Fall is slowly covering us like a well worn sweater.

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.

All that and so much more, on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.

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.

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.

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.

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.
