Ep. 121 Blade Runner 2049

Despite a long weekend at New York Comic Con the Geek 101 crew is here to deliver another jam packed episode!

 

In news this week toxic fandom was put on full display as Rick and Morty fans made a stink over some McDonald’s Szechuan sauce…You heard that right.  Grown men whined about not getting enough McDonald’s sauce from their favorite cartoon…sigh.

That same level of toxicity was found in a few retailers during a Marvel panel. These men put their homophobia, racism, and misogyny front and center while they complained about Marvel’s new direction.

On a more positive note in the wake of NYCC we were treated to some trailers!  Brian K. Vaughn’s Runaways has been brought to life by Hulu.  We’re hyped.  Justice League looks like the same old song and dance.  Pacific Rim 2 looks to be massively entertaining.  Finally, The Last Jedi gives plenty of intrigue and incites even more anticipation.

In this week’s episode we’ve decided to include a short, spoiler free blurb for the film Blade Runner 2049. The film hasn’t seen the box office success it predicted so Ariel and Mike give you their opinion on whether or not you can see it.

Afterwards we go into a deep, detailed review of Denis Villanueve’s visually stunning sci-fi sequel.

About

Ariel is your typical 90's kid that realized being a casual fan wasn't enough. Instead of channelling his energy into school or extracurricular activities, it went almost exclusively into all things geek. You can find him dressing up as a Disney Pixar boy scout, obsessing over continuity errors, or complaining about how difficult it is to run a podcast and website.
