Once a week the Regular Joes get together to talk about stuff. This week this statement is even more accurate. In an episode with no clearly apparent theme or direction Barry, Dave and Tod discuss recent announcements regarding the future of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises, and in particular, who is in and who is out at the moment. As the Countdown to Star Trek Discovery continues the Joes note their favorite Next Generation Episodes. Also included, at no additional cost, an introspective exploration, and occasionally justification, of “the collector’s dilemma,” just when do you have enough stuff, is there such a thing as enough stuff, and are these three even remotely capable of recognizing either case. This is followed, appropriately, by What’s in the Box, where the guys talk about ... wait for it, more stuff they have recently acquired.  Thanks for listening!

In this episode we revisit three films that should have excited us, but barely registered a blip on our collective radar. With Alien: Covenant, Kong Skull Island, and Ghost in the Shell available on disc and to stream the Regular Joes take a second look. How do the franchise films measure up to their predecessors? How does the live action adaptation stack up to the anime that spawned it? Which of these films finds Barry and Tod on polar opposite ends of the like/dislike spectrum? Also, French Director Luc Besson is having a tough summer. First Valerian: City of a Thousand Planets was a critical and commercial failure, and this week he secured a position on Dave's "list." Find out why. All this plus Random Topics and a brand new segment called “If You Could.” Thanks for listening!

Continuing the Regular Joe's quest to record despite geographical obstacles, this week Tod remotes in from an undisclosed location on the northern tip of the Bermuda Triangle. Hint: there is lots of rum there. First up there a healthy shot of Random Topics, encompassing both Barry's fears about Star Wars ep 8 and Tod's unsustainable optimism about Star Trek Discovery, followed by a chaser, in the form of a brief, mostly spoiler free (shhh…Woody Harrelson dies…badly) review of War for the Planet of the Apes. Then another shot of Random, and that's about it. What more can you expect, we're on vacation. Thanks for listening!

The Regular Joes give their thoughts on the third big screen interpretation of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's enduring, and endearing, wall crawler.

Lastly, find out where the RJ team rank this film among the three previous 2017 comic book films. And, yes, there will be SPOILERS! Thanks for Listening.

This weekend the Regular Joes met up at Eternal Con on Long Island. Find out who they saw, what they bought and what their general impressions were of the show. In honor of the Independence Day holiday (as opposed to the 1996 film) the guys talk about what would have been a "Patriotic Film'" Desert Island DVD pick if the segment ever came together. Next up, a round of What's in the Box, followed by the always interesting Fun With Flashlights. Add in some Random topics, simmer over low heat for roughly 60 min, and you have ep 196. "We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight!  We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!” and thanks for listening!

The Regular Joes use this week's episode to catch up on accumulated Random Topics, including their thoughts on director Ron Howard (Apollo 13) taking the pilot seat for the Han Solo film. They offer up an RJ Pick, sharing something that is useful, particularly if you are 60's era Batman. Revisiting Desert Island DVD, they choose Films with a toy association, some of which may surprise you. There's a round of What's in The Box, and, despite Dave's philosophical objection to making plans or setting goals, they briefly discuss what they hope to accomplish in the second half of 2017. Yes, it's a Wheel of Segments.  Thanks for playing…er, listening!
