Look, do I need to draw a map? Everyone knows what came in #1 last weekend. The only question is how much did it come in #1 by. Seriously, was there any chance it wouldn’t?
You know what’s even odder? All the Gabbing Geeks have seen that movie by now, and no one has written a review for it. Not even Ryan listing all the things that were wrong about it, which he even does for movies he likes.
I won’t spoil Pixels in this review. Adam Sandler did that for us. The movie was not good, but oddly it was the kind of bad that leaves you frustrated because had it been done by a different creative team, it could have been a lot of fun. Why is that, you say?
The latest podcast episode covers new July movies, Star Wars news, Ghostbusters, and an amazing all-geek all-female soccer draft that will blow your mind! Give it a listen now or jump after the break to read more!
Back in Episode 21 of Gabbing Geek, the Geeks played a game of “Sequel, Reboot, or LET IT DIE!” In that now legendary segment (my mom liked it), we offered our not so humble opinions on how to manage some prominent Geek film properties. A movie like Goonies, for instance, could be rebooted for a new generation, continued with the original kids now parents to a next generation of Goonies, or Let the franchise die (which is somewhat incompatible with their motto…) Some franchises were destined to be continued, yet along the way the wheels fell off the bus.

Eddie Murphy, a talents whose rise was so meteoric that he is still the only person to HOST the show while still a cast member, never looked back since 1984. Until now…
