Episode Notes

It’s a surprisingly jam-packed episode this week, as we get to talk about a slew of movies, games, and TV. First up is a boatload of news, movie trailers, and more out of San Diego Comic-Con, including more DC shenanigans and an incredible look at Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok. Then we talk some recent movies, with Jonathan reviewing Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk and Sean catching up on the recent Planet of the Apes trilogy, leading to a chat about all 3 films including War for the Planet of the Apes. Then we talk about 3 recent (and upcoming) games: last week’s beta for Destiny 2, Jonathan’s thoughts on Nintendo’s wildly fun Splatoon 2 for Nintendo Switch, and Sean’s reaction to the amazing Nier Automata released earlier this year. And finally, we head to Twin Peaks for our latest review of The Return with the casually insane Part 11, an episode chock full of guns, hell portals, and cherry pie.

Enjoy, and look forward to the special 200th episode coming early next week!
