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.

SICKO MODE & DAD JOKES

This episode is Sicko Mode, is gonna be Sicko Mode, is going Sicko Mode….??? We honestly have no idea how to use this word. Our age is definitely showing here. But, thankfully, we booked some teenage experts aka The KON’s kids, to walk us through the proper way of using: “Sicko Mode”. And old meets new, as The Beta Boys dust off some TBR classics with a new edition of GO/NO GO (The Prodigy & The Lego Movie 2) and A STREAM COME TRUE where we try to narrow down all of the HULU, Netflix, Amazon Prime shows or movies you should be watching.

Plus, another New Tune Tuesday, on Thursday…Except on Friday. I’m sure you can guess what song we’re using.

GLASS REVIEW (SPOILER-ISH)

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.

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.

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.
