We are very close to making this question rhetorical…but, has DC finally figured it out? Are these new Zack Snyder-less movies any good? Should we be excited for The Joker and Shazam?

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.
Seldom do we take the time to honor the men who shaped our country and liberated us from the oppressive tyranny of foreign and domestic threats…to a degree. Yes, these men aren’t perfect and some aren’t even competent, but what they undeniably are, are the building blocks for compelling and entertaining movie characters. With that said, in honor of President’s Day, The Beta Boys give you the TOP 3 American Movie Presidents. You’ll be surprised at some of our choices.
Also, we play a little game called “Who Said It?” featuring none other than the inspiration for many movie characters—good and bad—President Donald Trump and a slew of movie villains, cartoon characters, and celebrities. “God Bless America, and nowhere else!”
Love is blind, but you don’t have to be when it comes to your Valentine’s Day movie choices. Love comes in many forms, so we wanted to celebrate 7 unconventional choices that will hopefully get the flames of love burning with your date.

Jay also offers a few choices that you may want to stay away from if you wish to really impress your date. HINT: Stay away from anything that has an MMA fighter as its star or has the word “Darkness” in its tile. You’re welcome. All that and so much more, on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.
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.

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.

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.

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?

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?

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!
