The Weekly Stuff #245 – Ant-Man & The Wasp Review, Persona Dancing Talk, and Remembering Steve Ditko & Harlan Ellison

Episode Summary

We review Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp, remember Harlan Ellison and Steve Ditko, and talk once again about the awesome Persona Dancing games with guest Thomas Lack.

Episode Notes

Marvel’s third film of the year arrived this week with Ant-Man & The Wasp, an imperfect and slight film that is nevertheless an absurd amount of fun. We give it our traditional in-depth treatment, but before that, Sean pays homage to two recently deceased creative giants who have had a big influence on him – Spider-Man creator and renowned comics artist Steve Ditko, and science-fiction giant Harlan Ellison – and Jonathan’s brother Thomas joins us for another discussion about Persona 3 Dancing and Persona 5 Dancing, as he’s gone and nabbed all the high scores in those games to go along with his obsessive high scores from Persona 4 Dancing.

Oh, and during the Persona talk, Sean also expressed his desire to see the game’s remix of “Burn My Dread” laid over footage of classic-style Sonic the Hedgehog, and I obliged on the fly. It works amazingly well.
