Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge First Hand Experience

A long time ago on a podcast far, far away...THE BETA REPORT! visited Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland in Southern California, and they’re now ready to share their experience of this new wondrous and enthralling land. That’s right, The KON has been to Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge and he’s here to give us all of the juicy little details that we all want to know before the new attraction opens to the public on June 24, 2019. From blue milk to droid building, this massive new park left The KON wanting more, but he’ll give us his run down on the Do’s and Dont’s and what three things you definitely have to do!

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

COMIC-CON 2018 RECAP

Comic-Con 2018 was this weekend aaaannnnddd....Did anyone really care? The Beta Boys are back to talk about the underwhelming sensation we all got after this year's Comic-Con. Its a reminder of just how much Disney/Marvel/Lucasfilm mean to the convention and how its presence and/or absence is definitely felt. Or is it something else? Is the lack of new and creative ideas put at the forefront once the spectacle of Disney and friends aren't there to hide the mediocrity? 

But, it wasn't all doom and gloom, there were a few standouts that actually shattered our boredom and blew our expectations out of the water! The KON, Jay, and Uno dive into their favorite trailers from the Con and point out a few gems that we should all be looking forward to with a new TRAILER PARK segment.

The Incredibles are Better Than The Avengers...

The Incredibles are Better Than The Avengers...

Never mind the clickbait title, I think there is some truth to this. In one corner, there is a family of heroes that waited 14 years to release a sequel. In the other, we have a team of heroes who became a family, that spent 10 years doing nothing but releasing sequels. And, though we've grown up with both groups, there is a certain fondness for The Incredibles that is nestled deep in my Pixar loving heart. Knowing what Toy Story 3 was able to emotionally pull from me, I can already tell that The Incredibles can, and undoubtedly will, do the same. So, can The Incredibles be better films than The Avengers movies? Listen to find out! 

So, on today's show, we dive into this week's GO/NO GO, which of course is: The Incredibles 2. We also break down this week's TOP 5, including the twisted and wholly terrifying new horror classic, Hereditary. Jay also gives his quick Ocean's 8 review. Make sure and stay tuned to this week's blog to read his full review. Finally, we have a brand new Trailer Park. All that and so much more, on this week's episode of The Beta Report.

Magic March

Magic March

Come close. Closer...and look into our magic balls. Three of them in fact, as the Kon, Uno and Jay take you on a mystical journey through the lands of Magic March. Let us bewitch you with our March movie preview as the boy's breakdown the upcoming movies we think will be the standouts of this pretty stacked month. Take heed as well, as a tempestuous wind of reboots and remakes may come crashing down upon us in the near future. Stare at the glimmering, glistening, gleaming shine of our magic balls and wait and see if films like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Scarface, The Crow, The NeverEnding Story, or Short Circuit should get a Reboot or, simply, just get The Boot!

We have all this plus so much more on this week's 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! 

Plus, we got TWO new PICKS OF THE WEEK for you! We got all that and so much more on this week's episode of The Beta Report.

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.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle (REVIEW)

Kingsman: The Golden Circle (REVIEW)

It's Episode 91! Manners. Maketh. Man. In 2014, no one knew what Kingsman was and, quite frankly, I don't think anyone could have anticipated what a hit it would become. This sleek, uber-stylized, mega violent and unabashedly over-the-top-action-romp steamrolled through theaters and became one of the best modern spy movies we've ever seen. So, in not-so-beta-report-fashion, The Beta Bros actually went to see Kingsman: The Golden Circle in theaters this weekend. This is our full (NON-SPOILER) review of the film.  

We also give you guys are five most anticipated shows of the Fall and The KON reviews the Netflix comedy/mockumentary film: American Vandal. All that and so much more on this week's episode of The Beta Report.

(Not So) Mini Episode

Jay is visiting family out of state, but that won't stop him from sitting alone, in a car, on a dark street, in a dusky small town in New Mexico fearing alien probes, blue meth dealers or Pennywise to provide you with the most entertaining nonsense you can imagine. You can always count on The Beta Bros to waste your time no matter which state we are in. You can also count on TBR to do a mini-episode, but still make it an hour long show!

This week, we discuss the return of JJ Abrams to the Star Wars Universe as its being reported that he has now been hired to write and direct Episode IX after Colin Trevorrow's firing. We also talk Narcos: Season 3, Little Evil, and Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water, which we unfortunately missed in our last episode "Fall Preview (Movies)".

We also have a very different PICK OF THE WEEK for you 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.

The Defenders Review (Plus GoB)

It's Episode 86! The Defenders is finally here! For what felt like ages, Marvel has finally released its Netflix heroes' team-up adventure series and we've seen the whole thing. We got our SPOILER FREE REVIEW as well as our thoughts on the question everyone seems to be asking...is Iron Fist/Danny Rand better here than in his own series? We answer that and a few other questions regarding some of the show's other heroes, villains, and their futures in the NMCU (Netflix Marvel Cinematic Universe). 

Plus, we have another entry in the ongoing Game of Bros (GoB) segment, as Game of Thrones continues to march past the threshold of awesomeness with another great episode. This week we dissect Episode 6, "Beyond the Wall" as The Magnificent 7 aka The Suicide Squad aka The Westeros Avengers, go wight hunting in the snow. Zombie polar bears, flaming swords, Tormund and The Hound talking about Brienne...this episode has it all! By the way, "Tormund & The Hound" is the next great buddy-cop-Lethal-Weapon-Esque spin-off show that needs to happen. We got you HBO, let us write it. Hit us up!

We also talk about the upcoming standalone Obi-Won Kenobi movie and how that might connect to Rey and her parentage reveal in the upcoming Star Wars Saga films. Plus, we got a new PICK OF THE WEEK for you. It's a packed show! We got all this, and so much more, on this week's episode of The Beta Report.

Game of Bros

It's Episode 85! On today's episode, The Beta Bros take on Season 7 of Game of Thrones. We react to episode 5 "Eastwatch", the benefits of this season's faster pace and whether there is too much fan service going on as we commence to wind the series down. We also keep it within the GOT family and talk about a little known movie starring everyone's favorite Lannister, Peter Dinklage, called Rememory. Then there is the Bruce Willis led remake of Death Wish. Will it work? Does this remake suffer from the history of its own name? Is Bruce "Willy" a good replacement for Charles Bronson? We answer all these questions and more. Plus, we got our PICK OF THE WEEK...THE DEFENDERS! All that and so much more, on this week's episode of The Beta Report.
