In this episode we discuss the new Dr Strange trailer, FOUR new Avatar movies, and then provide some geek recommendations for TV (The Magicians), comic books (all things Star Wars), and books (The Rook, Discworld). Check it out now or head after the break for the full video.

Readers of this blog and listeners to our podcast know that I love box office numbers. I’ve also recently become intrigued by the Good Judgment project after hearing about them on the Freakonomics podcast. Their website has a number of political, news, and pop culture questions they invite the public to predict and they recently asked what were the chances that Civil War would outgross Batman v. Superman (which brought in an amazing $166M on opening weekend).
I was surprised to see so many people saying Civil War would outgross Batsoup with almost not thought into the matter, so I decided to make my own prediction and analysis. Jump after the break to read why I think it is unlikely for Civil War to beat Batsoup and let me know your thoughts in the comments.
In an era of over-hype, where there are teaser trailers for the release of teaser trailers, the Doctor Strange trailer kinda snuck up on us. After the break, get your first glimpse of Marvel’s next star in the making.
It’d probably go a little something like this exchange after the break.

At last, Ryan has seen and reviewed the eponymous Batman Vs Kramer: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. He didn’t like it.
Well, it wasn’t good, but to be very fair, I will now list all that was right about it. SPOILERS and such.
Not an April Fools Joke, this is seriously a brand new episode of Gabbing Geek! And not only is it audio but video as well! Jump after the break to see the full video of the session or you can download the audio from your favorite podcast source.
In this episode we talk about the things we’ve been geeking out on for the past few months and then play a cruel, cruel game of Spoiler Trivia. Ryan has to answer trivia questions and for every one he misses the questioner gets to reveal a spoiler about Batman v. Superman (because Ryan is so lame he still hasn’t seen it). Find out what happens after the break!
I haven’t given up on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D yet like many have. I know the first half of season one was a bit weak, but they really hit it out of the ballpark post Captain America: Winter Soldier. As for the current Inhumans storyline…well…like I said, I haven’t given up on it, but I do have a backlog of episodes on my DVR that I never seem in any rush to watch. I’m sure I will…eventually.
In the meantime, get a taste for what you’ve been missing when Honest Trailers turns their sights from the usual blockbusters to the small screen and cover this black sheep of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
I’m totally off the grid these days, but Ryan’s predictions are so bad I had to come in and rip them to shreds and give you the REAL numbers. His bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out were pretty weak. He called his performance was mixed–but for him mixed was chocolate plus peanut butter. In reality, it is a mix of Ex-lax and motor oil. So I am going to go, one by one, through his 2016 picks and give the real number. We have a lunch bet on who has the lowest delta between the acutals and their predictions. NO PRICE IS RIGHT RULES IN EFFECT!
One year ago I made some bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out. My performance was mixed–got some, missed some others. But now it’s time to look ahead to 2016. Jump after the break to see what I predict will be the top ten grossing films of the year along with 33 other movies I’m making some bold predictions on!
