After a troubled history of changes in direction, directors, and significant reshoots, Justice League opened last week to an underwhelming critical and audience reception. After a series of misses DC needed to prove the success of Wonder Woman was not a fluke. Did that happen? The Regular Joe’s put Justice League under the microscope examining the good, more than you might think, the bad, there’s a lot of that too, and where does this trouble franchise go from here? Also, Barry and Dave get intimate with Robbie the Robot. Henceforth, known as “the most expensive film prop ever sold at auction.” They see other stuff too. Check out the companion gallery at RegularJoes.com.  All this plus What’s in the box in our Thanksgiving eve edition of The Regular Joes Podcast. Thanks for listening!

Thor Ragnarok is in theaters shattering box office expectations and hammers. It’s the Thunder God‘s third big screen outing, and Marvel Studios 17th film overall, however this time around it’s a very different kind of superhero film. While Ragnarok is mostly pleasing audiences, and even garnering some critical praise, many hard-core Thor fans are not happy with this version of their hero. Find out what the Regular Joe’s think, where they come down on this new direction, and how they they rank this film against the Son of Odin’s prior outings. WARNING this episode contains SPOILERS All this plus the usual Random Topics and What’s in the Box. Thanks for listening!

None of us have finished Stranger Things, and Thor: Ragnorok is not out yet, but we still found plenty to talk about on All Hallows’ Eve. First up, a triple helping of Random Topics, then, a Hot Toys Minute (seriously, has it ever been a minute) covering the long awaited Aliens: Ripley figure, and Star Wars Rogue One’s Jyn Urso. There’s a fledgling attempt to resurrect, our old, Who Would Win in Fight segment. Then it’s time for What’s in the Box, where Tod has Gwyneth Paltrow’s head, and body, in a carton. Lastly, we find time to catch up on week 7 of Star Trek: Discovery. Thanks for listening!

Tod was sick, Barry was grumpy, but nevertheless our stalwart ensemble pressed onward to give you another episode of the Regular Joe’s Podcast. This week we tackle Fall TV. What returning shows are we interested in? What new shows seem promising? And what summer shows caught our interest? In addition to what we watch we delve into how we watch. The TV landscape is undergoing radical changes, as numerous streaming options arise, and Amazon and Netflix break the weekly “must see TV” model, how has how we consume shows changed? But, before we get started with all that, we talk about The Walking Dead’s landmark 100th episode. And why at least one of us will be in no rush to watch the 101st episode. All this plus the usual Random Topics and What’s in the Box. Thanks for Listening!

Blade Runner 2049 has been met with generally good reviews and smaller than anticipated audiences. Find out why two of the Regular Joes are among those enthusiastic about this long awaited follow up to Ridley Scott’s 1982 classic, and the third…not so much. Does the film stand on its own, or is it a sequel in the truest sense? Can you recreate a world crafted with old school practical effects in the age of CGI? And, how does 2049’s attempt at digital actor replication compare to other recent examples? While this show, shockingly, contains no discussion of Star Trek Discovery, a commensurate amount of time is given to the most recently announced Star Wars film title. WARNING this episode does contain SPOILERS, particularly if you haven’t heard the next “A Star Wars Story” film is named after a plastic beer cup. All this plus What’s in the Box/Show and Tell. Thanks for listening!

After a few very narrowly focused shows this week we take some time to get caught up on all the other stuff, including some What’s in the Box and Show and Tell. From the two extremes of creative endeavors, Dave recommends a $3000 tool for hardcore makers and Tod offers a tip that costs virtually nothing to implement. Barry tells how his observed Force Friday, which along with May the fourth, and any Star Wars movie premiere date, are the most revered holy days in his religion. There is the inevitable ongoing follow up discussion on Star Trek Discovery. And lastly, a discussion of two new figures which demonstrate that Hot Toys is as committed to detail as they are to getting all of our money. Thanks for Listening!

After an excruciating series of setbacks and delays CBS has finally launched Star Trek Discovery, the latest, and most controversial, TV installment in the 51 year old sci-fi Franchise. While there’s no disputing this is very different show than those which proceeded it, is it too much a departure from the Trek we know and love? Longtime fans and reviewers are taking sides, and now the Regular Joes weigh in. How much Klingon is too much Klingon? Does this future version of history look too futuristic? Will CBS find success holding this beloved franchise hostage behind a paywall? And, was it worth the wait? All this plus the usual round of ransom topics. Thanks for Listening!

We have been threatening to do this for a while, and now it’s finally happened. In this episode we offer up live commentary on what is generally considered to be the worst Trek film in the universe, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Did it improve over time? Could it really be as bad as we remember? Why isn’t Director William Shatner ever actually referred to as “Director William Shatner”? And, of course, why does God need a starship? We answer all these questions, and more. As with our previous live commentary shows there is fair amount of drinking involved. If you plan on rewatching this particular film we strongly suggest doing likewise. Watch responsibly. Thanks for listening!
